Top 10 Animated Disney Movie Characters with The Saddest Backstories
The Top Ten
Mother is killed by Frollo and was nearly drowned until Frollo was guilt tripped into being his legal guardian who then has him locked away in the bell towers of Notre Dame for most of his life.
The way they treated him was wrong in the wrongest way possible.
Jessie was disowned by her old owner
SHE GETS FORGOTTEN? that's just sad.
Literally in the first scene of the movie Marlin's wife and all but one of his kids is eaten with only Nemo being the only survivor and from then on he is fearful of anything bad happening to Nemo.
Was born with ice powers and during her childhood she accidentally hurt Anna and because of this she fears that her powers will harm those around her and her parents after getting some help from the trolls decide to try and hide her powers from not only from the world but even from her own sister Anna, though its really a sad backstory for both of them as both are kept apart with Anna not knowing why she and Elsa can't be together since they erased all knowledge of Elsa's ice powers from her for no good reason as their parents try everything to help her keep control of her powers which is basically keeping her locked away which only made the problem worse over time especially since both parents die during a storm and both Anna and Elsa are left on their own with no guidance.
I hate how they're going to butcher it in "Frozen II" (so they can force yet another "heart tugging goodbye", this time between Anna and Elsa).
His father abandons him and his mother when he was little.
I'm honestly in love. Everything about Hector's silky bones is perfect. From the way he throws them around to the way he strums that sexy guitar. I would do anything to be with him. He is the perfect man and despite him being a skeleton, I would give my soul to him.
As its later revealed Hector is actually Miguel's great great grandfather who was a musician who left his family to go tour with his childhood friend Ernesto Del La Cruz but after being gone from his family for so long Hector decided to return home to his family until Ernesto not willing to let him leave since it was his songs that brought them success and not wanting to lose that he poisons him and steals his songs including "Remember Me" which he had written for his daughter Coco, and since he never returned his family thought he had abandoned them and completely forgot about him all expect for Coco the only one who still remembers him and according to the laws of the land of the dead if a person is completely forgotten about them then they cease to exist and because great grandma Coco is the only one who still remembers him and when she goes so will he.
The most messed up about it was he was murdered by Ernesto because he valued his family over being a musician.
Pretty hot for a skeleton
An orphan who was left abandoned in a box on the side of the street after all the other kittens were adopted leaving him all alone then on a rainy day the box breaks apart after being filled with water and Oliver nearly falls into the sewer drain before finally making it to safety.
In addition to the death of her parents, her sister has to prove that she can take care of her to Child Protective Services.
Both her parents died in a car accident which left her alone with her sister acting as her legal guardian.
Was prejudiced by prey, and even muzzled when all he wanted to do was become a scout.
For reasons that make no sense after getting injured by Elsa they decide to wipe out any knowledge of her having ice powers from Anna's memory and making things worse their parents split the two up and continue to keep Anna in the dark about why she can't have any contact with Elsa.
Anna and Jessica Rabbit ❤
Was once a great racer until the day he was involved in a crash and as a result he was kicked to the curb and was replaced by another rookie standing in line to take his place.
This is MY headcanons for Vitani's story. I am not saying they are canon.
Vitani's real mother died of blood loss
Vitani's adopted mother, Zira abused her
Vitani was bullied
Her adopted brother, Nuka died
Vitani was forced to kill her best friend
Vitani's true love, Kumon (NOT KOPA) died while she was pregnate
Vitani's son, Timber was washed away by a rushing river
Her daughter, Kay ran away and got killed
Vitani's new mate, Kion gets killed
Vitani kills herself
Should be number 1
Isn’t this Lion King 2?
Though not much is known about King Triton's backstory in the original Little Mermaid its not until the prequel Ariel's Beginning where we learn that after witnessing the death of his Queen and Ariel's mother after being crushed to death at the hands of humans who crahsed their boats into her while she was trying to retrieve the music box he gave to her and because of it he banned all music from Atlantica for a while and its also why he has such hared towards humans and why he fears for Ariel's safety and not wanting for her to go to the surface.
Sid really isn't the villain we perceive him to be. And I think there are 3 reasons behind his actions:
1.) Lonely with no friends that we know of
2.) Active imagination
3.) Not much of a home life
While Sid was a brat, he was simply a product of his environment. Thanks to the scene when Buzz realizes he is a toy we can see his father is somewhat of a slob and a drunkard. It's obvious he didn't have a positive relationship with his mother either as she allows him to do whatever he wants and he gets no discipline from it. I think Sid just wanted some attention. And being that he didn't know toys were sentient and can feel pain, he can't be considered a true villain.
The only human in that universe who knows the truth
I blame his parents.
Even though it was offscreen it kills me that his mother gets shot.
His mum was killed...
Dory was abandoned by her parents
The more I think about it Stinky Pete's backstory is more tragic than Jessie's.
I mean, Stinky Pete never had an Emily or Andy in his life, thus never knew what it was liked to be loved by a child. Spending his life confined in a box watching space toys getting bought whist nobody wanted him was enough to make anyone bitter.
"FAIR, I'll tell you whats not fair spending a life time on a dime store shelf watching every other toy be sold, well finally my waiting has payed off and no handy me down cowboy doll is gonna mess it up for he now"
Nothing's wrong with Misfire. Her backstory was meant to parody over-dramatic "tragic backstories" common in video games, especially ones made since the 90s.
I actually thought her backstory was hilarious. There might be something wrong with me...
She was orphaned and always rejected on adoption day. Then she's kidnapped by Madame Medusa and Mr. Snoops so they could use her to find the Devil's Eye. She is saved by Bianca, Bernard and the swamp critters of Devil's Bayou. Thankfully, she finally gets adopted by the end of the movie.
