102Lavitz - The Legend of Dragoon

Oh man, I literally cried. My favorite character in a video game ever, and they killed him like that. No ceremony, just stab and done.

I think that there was really no point to kill lavitz. it was like 'hey, now that your green spear wielding guy is dead, here's another green spear wielding guy with the exact same mindset. the only difference is that Albert is 10x less interesting.' and I am sitting there going 'um...the hell? '

103Luma - Super Mario Galaxy

I never completed the last level of this game, so when I started watching the video walk through, I thought the ending was awesome. That is, until this death happened.

So sad but he is back in super Mario galaxy 2

The music made Luma's death sadder. He was with Mario the whole time, and everyone took him for granted. Plus, he little cry as he flies into the black hole was-heart wrenching.

Kick Bowser's ass in SSB4 Luma.

He dies, then the cycle ends and resets.

104Minato Arisato - Persona 3

His real name is makoto yuki by the way. This far by the most sad game endings, you know. He has to leave all his friends behind after creating such a strong bonds with them so that they can live. It's just so sad and depressing

You spend all this time working on your character, making your persona compendium larger, and creating bonds with all the people you can find, only to die in the end.

105William "Bill" Overbeck - Left 4 Dead

My favorite character from Left 4 Dead. Influenced my decision to stay with Coach in the second game due to leadership abilities, just like Bill.

This death was truly sad! After all that he did he is a great character. His bravery, Exprience, Fighting Skills, Speeches, Quotes, and everything he deserves to be here at this list. (I know the quality might not be good but whatever)

Bill was the best and finding his body in The Sacrifice left me in tears. -Trithtale

106Jason - Heavy Rain

I hate to see a ten year old kid get hit by a car in this game.

107Master Hand - Super Smash Brothers Brawl

Master hand wasnt evil, he was being controlled to do all those acts. He didn't fight for control. He fought for the fun and enjoyment and to see him die trying to destroy tabuu can really leave a mark on you

You wouldn't expect a glove's death would be sad, but it really is. - LarkwingFlight

108Mona Sax - Max Payne 2
109Victor Sullivan - Uncharted 3

After playing the series and the seeing this, it really does upset you - Joel_4

Sully didn't die. In the end it shows that it was just Drake hallucinating. Although when I thought he died. I was very upset.

I think what made this so horrible is that drake didn't even have time to think of his death.

This sene made me cry and I dident even cry for heavy rain or red dead if you haven't played this game it is awesome

110Carlos - Saints Row 2

Carlos' death was such a tragic moment in a usually lighthearted series. I was crying when the Boss had to mercy kill him and then when the scene was over, I swore vengeance on the Brotherhood.

111The Companion Cube - Portal

The Companion Cube would rather die in a fire than become a burden to you.

Euthanize your Companion Cube or the testing will not continue.

Euthanize your faithful Companion Cube.

112Alex Mercer - Prototype 2

This guy... was an all around badass... in fact I am pissed that they didn't make this #1! I cried so hard that he was dead I couldn't sleep... I mean, you take this Ezio look-alike... and you make him die like a dog, not a god, a dog... I hope in the third prototype you kill heller in front of his daughter, then kill Dana for betraying her own brother. but, this is the Mercer we've always known, he went out like a boss, his last words were the badassiest last words ever. "heh... Welcome to the top of the food-chain..." see you back at the top, Alex.

Mercer sucked as a character because his dialogue was crappy he kept complaining about the virus being a curse and in number 2 he rereleased the virus killed father gurruo and took Heller's daughter not to mention kill all of the evolved by consuming them but when Heller did kill him he also got rid of the virus completely and Dana also betrayed Mercer because he was evil so his death was not sad

I will always remember him in my heart as that lovable guy who tried to kill james heller but in the game you just have to kill him I just want him back Rip alex mercer

113Bowman - Call of Duty: Black Ops

He just didn't deserve his death at all, so unjust for a great character like him. Even when he was being forced to play Russian roulette he didn't play by the rules

114Mary - Silent Hill 2

It wasn't so much her death, as her pleas not to die. Also being forced to leave in agony until her dying days.

115Sniper Wolf - Metal Gear Solid

I cried the same way I did when I had to kil The Boss. I mean, the way she died, in front of the man who loved her makes it more sad

116Trevor Phillips - Grand Theft Auto V

It wasn't really that sad but the way he died was just so shocking and violent.

Please choose C, no one wants to see Michael or Trevor die because of Devin - Gtaisawesome2013

Please do us a favor and choose ending C if you choose ending A you will see one of the best Rockstar games Character die :(

He's my favorite story character ever

117Seiko Shinohara - Corpse Party

Killed by her best friend and STILL didn't hold a grudge. It's so sad. I cried when all her texts were being sent to Naomi.

She's so sweet and cute I almost started crying when she died she should be ranked higher

118Riley Abel - The Last of Us: Left Behind

One of the saddest things about her death, in my opinion, is that you know she is going to die because of the main campaign. Her final words and not actually seeing her death, yet knowing what will happen makes this sadder.

This is a very sad death that should have been more sentinmental and they shouldve shown what happened after they were bitten

119Emile - Valiant Hearts

I don't know if this was just me, but I started sobbing uncontrollably when he died

120Sonic the Hedgehog - Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Yet, he was being brought back to life by, dare I say it, getting kissed by Elise. (the Sonic 2006 haters are in shock and awe)

Seriously, people. It was just a simple kiss. They weren't "getting it on" or anything. Stop out.
