Top 10 Saddest Deaths in Disney Movies

The Top Ten
1 Mufasa - Lion King Mufasa is a major character in Disney's 1994 animated feature film, The Lion King. He is Simba's father, Sarabi's mate, Scar's older brother, and was King of the Pride Lands until his death.

Yes it is sad, but compare it with Reuben's death from MCSM and Gonta's and Kokichi's death from Danganronpa V3, Mufasa's death is kind of overrated. It's still sad, though because I love Mufasa.

Without a doubt the saddest death in any movie, Disney or not. Simba Lost his father at a young age and was forced to run away because of it. Disney really thought Mufasa’s death through too well...

Lion king is my favorite Disney movie, this is the saddest death! Scar deserved to die!

So sad that I cried all day long Mufasa was my favorite character.

2 Ellie - Up

What made it hard was watching her entire life with Carl. How happy she made him. Trying to stay strong till the very end

It was already so sad and then they had to add that music

It was the saddest because he never got to take her to Paridise Falls

It's not Disney, it's Pixar, but still yes to sad

3 Bing Bong - Inside Out

That makes Bing Bongs death so emotional is that he knowingly sacrificed himself to make sure the person he cared most about could experience happiness again.

As an unemotional 18 year old boy, even I had to hold back my tears during this scene.

This is one of two movies I remember crying at. The other one is Coco

I remember watching it and as soon as he jumped off I was like 'no no no no this was not meant to happen😩'

4 Bambi's Mother - Bambi

This one was WAAY sadder than stupid Mufasa's death (Which wasn't sad at ALL)!

When mothers die you turn into a crying machine.

Watched the movie once. Never again

I cry just knowing about it.

5 Ray - The Princess and the Frog

How is Bing Bong sadder than Ray. Bing Bong is an irrelevant elephant thing who had no character except for being stupid.

This is by far the saddest disney death by far

Ray was so funny and kind hearted.

It was so sad, I cried. I'm so sad now

6 Koda's Mother - Brother Bear

I'm crying thinking about it

7 Tadashi - Big Hero 6 Tadashi 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.

I was bawling my eyes out. He was awesome. He died for no reason. * Sniffed*

He died for no reason and he should come back

He was like the coolest brother

He was really nice to Hiro

8 Coral - Finding Nemo

Sad. What would've been different in Finding Nemo if both Coral and Marlin survived with that egg named 'Nemo'?

This was so sad

such an underrated character, also one of the best mothers

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

This one almost made me want to cry because... he just looks so ADORABLE and he just went away!

Bay max was my favorite and the tiny magnetic metel things should have died

damm this part was unexpected

10 Han Solo - Star Wars: The Force Awakens Han Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Harrison Ford. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire.

This was the only movie I ever shed areas on... it was one singular tear... but it was still a tear. NO MORE HAN. I felt so bad for chewy.

I was like "WHAT?!?! " when he died. Han Solo Forever

Why did his own son stab him!

Oh this has to super High

The Contenders
11 Gamora - Avengers: Infinity War Gamora is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Jim Starlin, the character first appeared in Strange Tales #180.

I cried when she died I love Gamora I hate thanos for killing her

Again, was this necessary. If they keep this up, I’m switching to DC universe

12 Leslie - Bridge to Terabithia

It's so sad that a creative and brave girl could die in the place of their magical kingdom

It was so sad! Leslie never deserved to die! She was so nice...

I love the movie and I love the book even more

Never saw the movie again

13 Iron Man/Tony Stark- Avengers: Endgame

I strongly disagree with this decision. I almost can not watch any of the movies anymore

I'm surprised this one is so low on the list

I cried for 3 weeks


14 Yondu - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

This dude could take out the galaxy by whistling

He was Peter's daddy

Yondu's finest hour:


If he encounters Walt in the MCU's version of heaven, he's gonna be a little annoyed Peter didn't tell him that Mary Poppins was a woman.

Spoiler Alert!

15 Mama Coco - Coco

She was so cute, and sweet! It totally wasnt her time to go!

the flashbacks made it even more upsetting


16 Sitka - Brother Bear

A true leader and brother.

I feel Kenai and Denahi's pain.

17 Kerchak - Tarzan
18 Agent Coulson - The Avengers
19 Gurgi - The Black Cauldron

To give up his life for his friends! Oh I feel this movie is so underrated!

I hate the horn King

20 Wall-E - Wall-E
21 Gramma Tala - Moana

This death made my mom cry and made me too but then she comes back as a spirit manta ray

This one made me really upset actually

This made me sad

22 Groot - Guardians of the Galaxy
23 Dumbo's Mother - Dumbo

She didn't die, but when the song "baby my" plays, every time I watch it I can't get through it without crying.

I love watching dumbo, but every time I see dumbo's mom locked up, I immedietly start bawling my eyes out.

24 Loki - Avengers: Infinity War Loki Laufeyson, or Loki Odinson, is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is the adoptive brother and archenemy of Thor, and is known as the "God of Mischief". In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the character has been portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.

Rest In Peace my friend.

He was a great character. After all he’s done for the franchise, it’s okay that he’s dead.

25 Esmeralda - Hunchback of Notre Dame Esméralda, born Agnès, is a fictional character in Victor Hugo's 1831 novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.

She didn't die, she was just unconscious.

She didn't actually die

Why is she on the list she did'nt die
