This movie proves that just because a movie is animated, that doesn't mean it can't be sad! - TheMuslimMemer

2 Grave of the Fireflies

This movie is so damn sad words can't describe it you have to watch it yourself goodbye I'm gonna go cry

8 The Fox and the Hound
9 Inside Out


10 The Prince of Egypt

The Contenders

11 Bambi
12 Rugrats In Paris: The Movie
13 How to Train Your Dragon 2

This isn't just a great sequel or a great animated movie. It's just a great movie period, not to mention one of the most emotional movies I've ever seen. The world building and the character development are incredible,and you really care about the characters and what's happening to them. There is also a shocking development towards the end that will have fans of the film tagging it as the franchises "Luke, I am your father" moment.

There are not a lot of movies that can move your emotions in the way How to Train your Dragon 2 can, and that is truly the mark of a great movie.

This movie was so sad. I cried when his dragon left hiccup and when his father died and one more when hiccup tried to take his dragon back

I cry every time I see this movie.

I've watched this movie recently and... OK, let's get to the point! This was absolutely one of the greatest movies in the world I've ever seen! I really didn't know that I would comment on this movie like this! I think you understand what I'm saying... I thought that there was no Animated movie sadder than Inside Out, but now I'm saying that How to train your dragon 2 is the best of'em all! But, one thing... Stoik shouldn't have been died! so sad! - Victoryboy
