Top Ten Saddest Deaths In Video Games


The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Steve Burnside - Resident Evil: Code Veronica

He's still alive, as Wesker's "son", Jake Muller. In the RE6 Jake/Sherry campaign, the main theme is about promises, as is the theme in CV. In addition, he has a patch on his sleeve that reads "La Nuevo Vita", which translates to "The New Life". This is only a theory as of now, and has yet to be proven.

Are you serious? He had to die in order for Code Veronica to continue. Why? What? Why? Just Beating Metal Gear Solid 4, this is easily the saddest moment in not only Resident Evil Games, but in video games as well. - wjacob313

Even though I'm more into Claire & Leon, I still think he was so sweet & interesting character. I loved him. And I'm sure, Claire Redfield loved him too - Irina2932

This was sad very very very sad. I cried so hard that my mother also cried. When my mother cried my brother killed my mother with a shovel. She did not die from the first hit and she bled out. This happend because I cried and then she cried and then my brother killer her with a shovel. True Story

83Bloodwing - Borderlands 2

Sweet Jesus! I cried so much! Mordecai screaming out that they can still save him, then Jack detonates the explosive collar, OH GOD! :'c :'c R.I. P Bloodwing

84The Dog - The Walking Dead Season 2

I thought he wold have been a cool companion for clem but no...

Things never last in that game.

Not even your dog companion. - DapperPickle

I can't stand animal deaths because they seem so helpless

85Reuben - Minecraft Story Mode

It was a surprise to me. You don't want to know how long I cried.

Reuben would of survived if jesse destroyed the command block in time, I mean, they both fell in the same hole

Rubin's death was surprising and sad at the same time. The one character who was truly a hero was the one character whose death you couldn't change R.I.P

He was awesome

86The Great Deku Tree - Ocarina of Time

Link tried his best to save him but he still died. Link: WHY! WHY MUST YOU DIE!?

87Ben - The Walking Dead

I was so devastated when I saw Kenny go for Ben in the alley. My favorite character AND Lee's best friend both die. Unless season's 2 Kenny comeback counts which it does.

Sorry, but the game cracked me up when Ben was impaled and he kept saying "I'm fine." - DapperPickle

88Shadow - Sonic Adventure 2

I think Shadow would have rated higher if he stayed dead. Still, I was extremely saddened when he died. I care a lot about the Sonic characters and to see one die after he turned good made me cry over a video game for the first and only time.

After his death in SA2, I thought my life was over.
Luckily, some genius brought him back in Sonic Heroes!
His death was still sad.

His return to Sonic Heroes-onwards really made him lose his purpose. If Shadow stayed dead in SA2, then the later games wouldn't get suck slack and the Sonic fandom wouldn't be as bad as it is now. No offense to anyone but this is my opinion.

90Damas - Jak 3

Damas dies just as Jak found out he was his son, and Damas never knew it. Also, Veger's a prick for rubbing it in Jak's face

91Omid - The Walking Dead Season 2

Por guy was shot by a stranger

92Emma Emmerich - Metal Gear Solid 2

Man I Cried So Much

It was the saddest one that I see

93Sgt Paul Jackson - Modern Warfare

How is one of the most shocking moments in video game history so low? Its not really the fact that Jackson dies that's sad, it's the way its done. The nuke going off, controlling him stubbling around in the descruction before he falls over and everything fades out. Then the kill shot were we see in a miliatry report: Sergeant Paul Jack: KIA. I was speechless the entire time

94Midna - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Even though she didn't 'die' she made me cry when I first played this game. I feel you Midna :( Memories, anyone? - Stormver101

95Ghost Rider - Battlefield: Bad Company 2

I almost cried when ghost rider died, he was a loveable and kindhearted hippie who just wanted to save his friends. It is also sad because the bad company give him a pack of cigarettes and he shouts 'thanks for the smokes, brother! ' just before his helicopter is blown up. - LarvicarioZ

Poor Flynn... I hold out hope he somehow lived and will be back in bad company 3

96Leah - Diablo 3
97Deckard Cain - Diablo 3

I will always love that old man - whodafuqisthisguy

98King Leoric - Diablo I

First he lost both of his sons then he wents insane kill his wife and then he got killed by lachdanan

99Papyrus - UndertaleProbably the second most popular character from the already insanely popular 2015 indie RPG known as Undertale, Papyrus the skeleton is Sans' taller and skinnier younger brother (much like how Luigi is to Mario in the Super Mario Bros series, except that Papyrus is physically stronger than Sans) who more.

If you kill papyrus you are a monster.

I nearly cried he's such a good person.A person who believes in you.The only one who believes in you.He only wanted to be a royal guard but he's dreams are shattered if you kill him and do the kill everyone thing don't.But it dose make more sense if you kill everyone

Well... that's not what I expected... but you can do a little better! I believe in you!
