21 Pyrrha Dies (RWBY) Pyrrha Dies (RWBY)

So sad ;_;

22 Hohenheim's Plan (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood)
23 Eren Dies (Attack On Titan)

Ahem... A more accurate way to describe this plot twist would be Eren getting eaten by a Titan and then suddenly transforming into one himself as he emerges out of it. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He's still alive... - Goku02

24 Hide's Death (Tokyo Ghoul) Hide's Death (Tokyo Ghoul)

*SPOILER ALERT*
Since there are a lot of spoilers in this list, let's spoil the fun a little more.

Well, the anime has to be remade and if it goes according to the manga then it's even more surprising. KANEKI EATS HIDE.
There's even more in :re but I'll stop at that. - Undistinguished

25 Naruto Kills Everyone (Naruto)

Such a twist. Did not see it coming. Never thought boruto's dad would do that.

26 Natsu is END (Fairy Tail) Natsu is END (Fairy Tail)
27 Spike Dies (Cowboy Bebop) Spike Dies (Cowboy Bebop)

Well, you can't really say he died, since it was never confirmed.

28 King Bradley is actually a Homunculus (Fullmetal Alchemist series) King Bradley is actually a Homunculus (Fullmetal Alchemist series)

Actually in Brotherhood, it's very obvious. But if you read the manga or the 2003 adaptation first, then it's an actual plot twist. - Rue

Brotherhood has manga plot so how can it be a plot twist in the manga and not in Brotherhood? - Tia-Harribel

29 The Eclipse (Berserk) The Eclipse (Berserk)
30 Heathcliff Was the Creator of Sao (Sword Art Online)
31 Shirogane Takeshi is Killed (Golion)

Definitely. I was literally screaming. - RebeccaDarking

32 Milia marries Maximillian (Super Dimension Fortress Macross) Milia marries Maximillian (Super Dimension Fortress Macross)
33 The Gray King (K Return of Kings)
34 Sailors Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and Mars Die (Sailor Moon) Sailors Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and Mars Die (Sailor Moon)
35 Main ingredient to the Philosopher's Stone is human life (Fullmetal Alchemist series) Main ingredient to the Philosopher's Stone is human life (Fullmetal Alchemist series)
36 Ouri is part Shikabane (Corpse Princess) Ouri is part Shikabane (Corpse Princess)
37 Karasuno vs Aoba Josai (First Season) - Haikyuu!! Karasuno vs Aoba Josai (First Season) - Haikyuu!!
38 Homura overpowers Madokami and becomes the Devil (Madoka Magica Rebellion) Homura overpowers Madokami and becomes the Devil (Madoka Magica Rebellion)

It may be a movie, but I feel it counts because Rebellion serves as a sequel to the anime series. - Rue

39 Pyrrha vs Penny (RWBY) Pyrrha vs Penny (RWBY)
40 Touko Ichinose Dies (Taboo Tattoo)

I totally did not see that coming, considering she was the childhood friend of the main protagonist, Justice "Seigi" Akatsuka. Usually, in anime, childhood friends survive to the end. However, that is not the case here as she gets eaten up to death. And when that happened, it truly was saddening and actually made me shed a tear. - SelfDestruct
