Top Ten Almost-Deaths In Disney Movies

May it be a resurrection, or a last minute save, let's look at those times that characters almost died in Disney movies. And, for the record, minor spoiler alert.

The Top Ten

1 Snow White - Snow White And The Seven Dwarves Snow White - Snow White And The Seven Dwarves Snow White is a fictional character from Disney's first ever film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves . She is Disney's first ever Disney Princess and is the only Disney Princess to have her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame .

The original. You can't act like you don't remember this, because you do. It was sad, and it's the oldest of all the 'haha! Scared you! ' deaths. - timelord44

2 Basil [Of Baker Street] - The Great Mouse Detective

Maybe it's just because this is my favorite Disney movie, but this moment genuinely shocked me and it was so amazingly done after the Battle Of Big Ben/ - timelord44

3 Baymax - Big Hero 6 Baymax - Big Hero 6 Baymax is a fictional character, a superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Yes, the newest and quite possibly one of my favorites. Hasn't there been enough death in Hiro Hamada's life? - timelord44

I started crying when Baymax almost died! I mean, come on, that was pretty sad. Hiro had already lost his parents who he never knew and his brother Tadashi who he grew up with. He had already lost enough people and losing Baymax? It would've been tough it was so sad! - Lina1028

When Baymax had to be left in the portal, I was making my Apartment like a swimming a pool.

4 Robin Hood - Robin Hood

Robin Hood has perhaps one of the greatest third acts of any movie I've ever seen. And Robin's fake-your-death sequence only helped. - timelord44

5 Chief - The Fox And The Hound

Chief's almost-death was the climax of the film, and it set everything that came next in the film into place. - timelord44

6 Baloo - The Jungle Book Baloo - The Jungle Book

Only two words really need to be said. "That's... Dark." - timelord44

7 Pinocchio - Pinocchio

... Come on. I mean, it's Pinocchio. He risked his life to save Gepetto from a whale. That is heroism. - timelord44

8 Thunderbolt - 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure
9 Bambi - Bambi II
10 Trusty - Lady And The Tramp

It's no secret that I love Lady And The Tramp, and even though this almost-death didn't make much impact, I will never forget it. Ever. - timelord44

The Contenders

11 Eugene 'Flynn Rider' Fitzherbert - Tangled

As soon as I decided to make this top ten, I was like 'Flynn's almost-death has got to be on it'. Everyone remembers it, and we will all remember it. - timelord44

12 Oliver - Oliver & Company


13 Anna - Frozen Anna - Frozen Princess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

Yeah, I know. Frozen's hype has made Frozen a 'bad movie' which it's not. It's a great movie. And honestly, Anna's almost death is one of the best things about the movie. - timelord44

What's the downside of her death?

14 Scamp - Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure
15 Stitch - Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch Stitch - Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch
16 Tinker Bell - Peter Pan Tinker Bell - Peter Pan
17 Princess Aurora - Sleeping Beauty
18 Gurgi - The Black Cauldron

This isn't an almost death, he died then came back. its different. - DapperPickle

19 Ariel - The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning
20 Beast - Beauty and the Beast

I can't believe this isn't among the top ten! This, for me was one of the most dramatic, tear jerking, romantic moments of Disney if not the most! I'm really disappointed with it's ranking

What makes me more mad than anything about the rank of the beast almost death is that Anna's almost death ranks above it I mean what th- ANNA and nobody even likes her! This is so sad...
