Top 10 Saddest Monster Movies

Even movies that involve giant destructive monsters can be tear-fests.

The Top TenXW

1Godzilla vs Destroyah

Godzilla is on the verge of a nuclear meltdown, a monster is created by the weapon that killed the first Godzilla, and Godzilla's son dies. Such a emotional tear-fest.

The reason why I vote is because godzilla is my all time favorite monster next to gamera and I cried when godzilla melt this more sadder than godzilla 's deaths in gojira (1954) and the return of godzilla but all godzilla 's energy went to godzilla jr and became the new king and seated on his father 's throne this is a great way to end the heisei series all hail to the king!

2Godzilla (1998)

The death of godzilla in the end still pulls my heart strings. From the music to such a mighty beasts glory falling. Just remembering it fall to the ground and close it's eyes against the soundtrack makes my eyes tear up to this day.

WHAT this is your number 1! Zilla just let her babies die godzilla vs DESTROYAH! Should have been 1 Godzilla could kill zilla

3Godzilla (1954)

Watching Godzilla die was so sad.

4Pacific Rim

The relationship between Yancy and Raleigh seems genuine. So when Yancy is killed by Knifehead, Raleigh is devastated. Even the soundtrack of that part is called "For My Family" and well worthy of that title.

5King Kong (2005)

When King Kong died, I'm pretty sure the whole audience were reaching for the tissues.

This movie is sadder than Godzilla, KING KONG should be in number 1!

Put this in number one please.

6The Host

A monster kidnaps a man's daughter and the man tries to save her. I've never heard of that happening before. But still pretty sad.

7Godzilla (2014)

The female MUTO's sadness over the deaths of her young seems genuine. It's a shame she didn't get to avenge her children before she died at the hands of Godzilla.


Get this: The monster is a baby.

9Rebirth of Mothra

Although I hate this film, Mothra's death was pretty sad. I feel sorry for Mothra Leo.

10Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla

Kiryu is built from the first Godzilla's bones and is deployed to kill Godzilla, but memories of his death haunt him and he rampages. That's pretty sad.
