Top Ten Saddest Deaths In Video Games


The Contenders: Page 9XW

161Tall-nut - Plants vs. Zombies

I know this may seem a bit stupid, but just at the final Tall-nut stage where it is extremely eaten, it cries, and for some reason it's just so sad. I don't know why, but it just is.

162Claire - Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

Only death where I ACTUALLY cried. Super sad, and Layton is a great person! He helps everyone and never disserved to see his love die.

The worst part is that he has to lose her twice...

SPOILERS FOR AZRAN LEGACY: I personally thought both Emmy's betrayal and Descole's death were more upset because Emmy kicks ass and Descole has one of the best voice actors in the series (Ii don't know who it is but I've only seen him in The Eternal Diva). Melina's death in that film was quite sad.

163Snowflake - Dead Rising 2

I really love tigers and if I ever play Dead Rising 2, I would really spare Snowflake.

The reason I hate to kill him is because he has a really cool son.

164Cole - Infamous 2

This ending was really sad but at least it was a good reason. He saved humanity. It shouldn't be this far down the list. This is truly a top ten.

He sacrifice his self to save the world. What a true hero. Note: this only happen when you choose the hero side

166Berri - Conker's Bad Fur DayV2 Comments
167Tippi and Count Bleck - Super Paper Mario

Alright. A couple that was separated by a cruel fate (the woman became a butterfly and the man attempted to destroy al worlds in despair) and barely found each other, having to marry to destroy an artifact nalmed Chaos Heart, thus sacrificing their lives, is at number 196. Yeah.

The sacrifice they made was bold, and the way they were once a couple made it all the sadder that they were dying together.

168Ghost Leader - Ghost Recon
169Johnson - Halo 3

The Sergeant Major! His death was pretty rough. Even for the Chief. He saw soldiers die daily, but he literally dropped to his knees when Johnson died. The best line ever: "Send me out... with a bang..."

170Midna - 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

171Clara Lille - Watch Dogs

This was sad! She needs to be higher on this list. I mean WAY higher!

172Mother - Fable

While the graphics were bad this death still brought tears into my eyes.

173Jan Templar - Killzone 2

Makes me cry every time

174Chihiro Fujisaki - Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

Seeing someone as sweet, innocent, and caring as Chihiro get killed was so depressing that I actually stopped playing for awhile. Made even worse by the fact that Chihiro was starting to come out of his shell and try to make himself better, and then he dies before he can accomplish that.

175Batman - Batman: Arkham Knight
176Faize - Star Ocean: The Last Hope

SAME! Faize was so cute and his death was so unfair. Who goes through the same thing and only on dies? How does that happen?

In the ending scene, the ground was breaking and Faize fell and Edge was devastated. He even went down with Faize.Surprisingly, Edge lived. I mean, really? They went through the same crap and only one of them dies? What the heck?! And Faize was SO cute.

177Handsome Jack - Borderlands 2
178Katjaa - The Walking Dead
179Egil - Xenoblade Chronicles
180Wheatley - Portal 2V1 Comment
