They won't care about an old cook like me

84Yoda (Frank Oz) - Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

I know of someone who thought it was sad - hogwartsjedi

85V (Hugo Weaving) - V for Vendetta
86Danny Vinyard (Edward Furlong) - American History X

I just watched this movie 10 minutes ago. I don't know why it took this long but this is definitely in my top 10 movies. Like that other guy said, it happened right after Derek got his family back. And 73? This should be at least in the top 15

This death is just so sad... No one saw it coming and it really re enforces the themes set throughout the movie. it happens just as derek gets out and gets his act together and tries to help danny.. so sad, not enough people talk about it

Possibly the saddest moment in movie history. Just as dereck gets his head and his family togeather, it all just falls apart

87Lawrence Talbot (Benicio Del Toro) - The Wolfman (2010)

Lawrence was always tortured in life, from his father's treatment of him to turning into a werewolf and killing innocents. The fact that he lost the woman he loves to the curse as well as his life just makes this a complete tragedy.R.I. P Lawrence

88Norman Osborn / The Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) - Spider-Man
89Littlefoot's Mom (Helen Shaver) - The Land Before Time

This film was one of the best films when I was younger and I remember always crying at this point and wanting to get little foot and help him the poor little soul

I remember the-a-a-a-at! So sad! Why do all the loving mothers die?

90Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) - Transformers: The MovieOptimus Prime is a fictional character from the Transformers franchise. Optimus Prime is consistently depicted as having strong moral character, excellent leadership, and sound decision-making skills, and possesses brilliant military tactics, powerful martial arts, and advanced alien weaponry.

This was sad because Optimus Prime's death could have been prevented. Plus the way he turned black was just so morbid and disturbing.

His death was pretty sad although he was ressurected later on in the 3rd season.

91Tadashi Hamada (Daniel Henney) - Big Hero 6Tadashi Hamada is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 54th animated feature, Big Hero 6. The film is inspired by a Marvel comic book of the same name.

Pretty much every five minutes of the film made me cry but especially this death it didn't deserve to happen especially as the man was alive and safe

It was very sad. And through out the movie made it more sad. This made me cry.

92Zilla - Godzilla
93Godzilla Jr. - Godzilla vs Destroyah
94Batman (Christian Bale) - The Dark Knight Rises
95Joe Gideon (Roy Scheider) - All That Jazz

One of my favorite films from the 70's. I didn't expect such a sad ending - Alexandr

96Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness) - Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

I didn't cry, but I was all like, "What? NO! ". The way Obi-wan just stood there and let it come, and how Luke screamed after him... it's a good thing he wasn't very strong in the force, or he would've been dark side meat.

This is sad enough but since I saw the prequels first and I loved him in hose films and this film I was really sad.

97Jean Grey (Famke Jaansen) - X-2

She was resurrected several years later. - playstationfan66

98Thomas J. Sennett (Macaulay Culkin) - My Girl

Gosh, this movie is a tearjerker

He was mentioned in My Girl 2 (1994) just before Anna Chlumsky visits Nick (Austin O'Brien). - playstationfan66

99Chuck (Blake Cooper) - The Maze Runner

I honestly though his death was sadder than rue's because he never got to meet his mother and he and Thomas were like brothers

I swear that was the saddest death ever. After you think everything is fine now Gally's dead Chuck's about to die too. I can't believe he had to die it was so sad and Dylan O'brien's acting made it even more upsetting.

100Darth Vader (David Prowse) - Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

What?! No Darth Vader on this list? When you see him die with defeating the Emperor, accepting his son's and own fate you wanna cry. Especially when you look back and relieve what you witnessed with that character in the episodes before - Philipp606

The main character in the whole star wars series died!
Because of that stupid emporor! He is strong in the force than
anyone in the star wars and his light saber thecnique is
better than anyone! come on! It depressed me for a week!
Why is that dumb green mile sadder?! This should be number 1!
