The Top Ten
Along with Alphonse their father leaves and their mother dies shortly after they attempt to bring her back using Alchemy which ends in disaster Ed only loses his leg while Al loses his whole body Ed than sacrifices his own arm to bond Al's body to a suit of armor if that wasn't painful enough he undergoes surgery for automail and becomes a state Alchemist. - egnomac
Okay but how is alphonse not up here yet edward is? that literally makes no sense.
Naruto ends up the Nine Tailed Fox Spirit sealed inside him at birth the spirit that nearly destroyed the whole village years earlier, because of his secret he is ostracized by everyone, with no parents or friends and everyone avoiding him he constantly acts out not because he means any harm but because he desperately want's everyone to notice him. - egnomac
Saddest past ever...
He witnessed the tragic death of his parents in a fire. And then he was cursed :(
Was also caught by a cult and sacrificed
I feel so bad for him
on a side note I called Ciel a her at first
Can't even begin to describe how much this badass has gone through, easily the most tragic character in anime, maybe even in all of media itself.
Guts is backstory is way more tragic than the character above him if you don't believe me there is some people here that give you a detailed information about guts past compare them to those above
Yep, everyone else are pussies compared to Guts.
I have yet to come across a character with a more tragic not only past but life. Seriously, born from a dead corpse, forced to learn swordplay since childhood, raped, seeing his love raped by his supposed to be best friend.. losing an eye, an arm, and even your soul..? Can it get worse? Oh yeah, having the 9 tails and being Naruto. What's wrong with people, it's not a fandom question..V 6 Comments
His parents and little brother died at a young age. He tried to find meaning in the word love but when he loves people die his curse is the most saddest curse I have ever seen when he loves life dies around him tragic.
He wants to die and was considered the most evilest wizard alive when he is really just a good soul...
He should be up there with edward elric...
Cries every time he sees natsuV 1 Comment
Come on, she was rescued and raised by a loving person named Belle-mere for years and grew up alongside her foster sister, Nojiko. But it wouldn't last for long because large Fishmen came to the island where she lived and took over the whole thing. They asked for money but Belle-mere didn't have any because she spent it all to make Nami's favorite meal. So, she asked them to spare her two daughters lives.
For eight years, she worked with the Arlong Pirates to buy back her village from the cruel Fishmen. Only to have them lying to her and steal all the money away from her. Yeah, that's pretty messed up!
Robert's childhood was just too painful...
Was hated by everyone just because he was a celestial...
His only friends betrayed him...
His carer lied about taking care of him just to get money...
Then he became so resentful he became bad and destroyed his entire town... It was just too sad. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
He loses his father at a young age is forced into the Hanabishi Clan forcibly separated from his and later try to make him forget about his mother, he finally leaves and runs away to Tokyo only to find himself all alone with no one left to call his family however all that changes when meets up with Aoi later on. - egnomac
If there is talk about character with tragic past. Itachi should be number 1 because he killed his own clan and parents with his own hand for the sake of the village and hated by all people in the shinobi world. Whats more tragic than that.
He was forced to slaughter his entire family and clan, then branded as a criminal and has to live as a criminal for the rest of this life.
If anything can beat a ten year old little boy being forced to murder his entire family, tell me.
Itachi's backstory is unsurpassed as far as tragedy goes. To kill those you loved with your own hands, and be exiled and treated as a blight upon shinobi everywhere is a shakepeare level tragedy. He should be number 1.V 1 Comment
What happened to him was so tragic and unfortunate. If only he hadn't fallen for Rize. This guy has the most tragic past to me, right before Kiritsugu Emiya. For those of you that don't know the anime or the manga, Ken Kaneki was a regular human boy whose father had died while he was still an infant and his mother had died when he was in elementary school. He loved books and reading and was extremely lonely and had one friend growing up. One day when he was nineteen, he took an interest in a girl named Rize that he met at a coffee shop called Anteiku. They found out they both liked the same others and went out on a date. After the date, she insisted he walk her home because she claims to live near the area where all of the ghoul-attacks have been happening. A ghoul is a human-like species that can only drink coffee and eat humans. They are also physically stronger than humans. Rize pulls him into an alley and attempts to eat him, because she is the binge-eating ghoul that has been all ...more
Spoiler alert- Also it is later revealed that his mother abused him after his father died
Abused his mother
Abused for ten days straight in his 19th birthday
Goes on a date but the girl is a ghoul day after can't eat normally
He was taken from his father by Freiza right before he kills his father and all the other saiyans on planet Vegeta. - egnomac
He wasn't taken from his father, he was working on a distant planet at the moment. - Goku02
She's basically a grown woman trapped in a child's body, years ago she ended up in a stand still just like Kei for 6 long years. - egnomac
How does she not have the saddest past?! Her parents were killed, she was in slavery for most of her childhood, and she was abused and lost her eye! HER EYE. She got pushed off a cliff, and beaten by her most closest friend. This is insane
She loses her parents and her legs after an accident and just completely broke down until Mr. Dominic out of kindness of his heart outfits her auto-mail for her legs allowing her to get back on her feet once again, she becomes grateful for his generosity that she turns to stealing to pay him back for the auto-mail until she meets Winry who sets her strait. - ZZDOORAL
Ok, so there's Naruto, Nagato, Itachi..But no GAARA?! He suffered WAY more than any of them! He was rejected by all of his villagers and unlike Naruto, didn't have Iruka, or Kakashi, or ANYONE! Even his own siblings were scared of him.No to mention his only "family" his aunt, tried to kill him.At her own will! That's... come on, people, show some empathy! - ilar9118
His and Zeref's pasts are the most tragic ones in Fairy Tail. - Goku02
