Top Ten Saddest Deaths In Video Games


The Contenders: Page 8XW

141Trish Dailey - inFAMOUS
142Maria Robotnik - Numerous Sonic Games

As far as I know, She's deceased in every Sonic game. It's sad since it haunts my favorite character: Shadow the Hedgehog.

Omigosh that was HORRIBLE! She was so brave to die for Shadow. Also she was only 13! The depiction in sonic x was so much more sad because of how beautiful anime is.

143Raiden - Mortal Kombat Deception
144Lone Wanderer - Fallout 3
145Adam - Metroid Other M

Fusion makes the whole thing a little more tear-jerking.

146Joe - Mafia 2
147Queen Himiko - Okami

When I got to this bit, I didn't twig that Himiko would die until I saw King Wada's vision of the real Rao's death at the hands of Ninetails.

Ninetails was Rao and it make the fight with him all the better to take down that bassturnd

148Brownie - Super Meat Boy
149Commander Video - Bit. Trip Fate

The ending scene of the last stage has just so much feelings of depression in it. And I also find the scene after the credits at the same quality. 2 years, and it still makes me feel amounts of sadness.

This game series is amazing with its rhythmic and joyful background music. But, hearing BIT. TRIP FATE's music for the first time, I sensed something seriously wrong. And sure enough, CV dies in the end... From his own anger. :(... This death still brings me to tears.

150Hugo - Off

Congrats, Batter. You've killed your own child. Happy?

151Rhyme - The World Ends With You
152Sgt 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

153Jenny - The Darkness

How in the world does Jenny seem to always get left out of these lists? It was the dudes girlfriend and he had to stand there and watch her get murdered right in front of him.

154Doug - Walking Dead

He died a honorable death by selflessly saved Ben from Lilly's headshot. He has been a great partner throughout the game for Lee, a good friend, and shouldn't have died. I cried when he died.

He was really my favourite characters in the game and seeing him die was like seeing a friend get killed saving another friend.

Maybe you didn't see him for TOO long, but doesn't he die? I'm not sure because I haven't played for a long time.

Doug was an awesome guy

155Edward Thatch/blackbeard - Assassins Creed IV

In a world without gold we might have been heros

156Dust - Dust an Elysian Tail

Such a sad ending seeing someone sacrificing his life

Sorry for spelling mistake

157Norah Grey - Beyond: Two Souls
158Shazam - Injustice: Gods Among Us

It makes it even worse when you remember he is just a little kid. I couldn't believe Superman would just burn through a friends face like that.

Why...Why did they have to kill my favorite character? - nintendofan126

159Minecraft; Going to the End In Extreme Hard Mode and Dying, Having to Delete Your World With All Your Progress.

Not sad. I didn't mean there is no stronger feeling than hopeless.
I just mean It is not sad. Now I will correct it.


I wouldn't call this sad, I would call this FRIKIN RAGEQUIT TIME BABY!
