Saddest Anime Deaths


The Contenders: Page 11

201 Kyoko Kirigiri - Danganronpa 3 Kyoko Kirigiri - Danganronpa 3

The creators of this anime actually killed off one of the most beloved characters of the entire series. Her death was triggered by Makoto Naegi surviving the fourth time limit in the mutual killing game, but she never told Naegi that it was her forbidden action, just so he wouldn't get all berserk and want to kill himself. R.I.P. Kyoko Kirigiri. - SelfDestruct

Update: I spoke too soon. She was revived in Danganronpa 3: Hope Arc. - SelfDestruct

202 Tuxedo Mask - Sailor Moon
203 Wendy Marvell - Fairy Tail Wendy Marvell - Fairy Tail
204 Kiritsugu Emiya - Fate/Zero Kiritsugu Emiya - Fate/Zero Kiritsugu Emiya is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon and its prequel, Fate/Zero, by Type-Moon and nitroplus. He is only mentioned and seen in flashbacks in Fate/stay Night, but is one of the main protagonists of Fate/Zero.

I loved this series as well as Fate/Stay Night UBW

205 Rea Amano - Mirai Nikki

I hated to see her die. She was one of those cool, hip, sweet yet strict mothers.

She was a kind and caring mother. She was killed by her ex-husband :'( - Tuana123

206 Touko Ichinose - Taboo Tattoo

I... I... I... I was utterly heartbroken to see such a great companion to Justice "Seigi" Akatsuka die. This is one of the two deaths in anime that actually made me shed a single tear (the other one is Meruem from Hunter x Hunter). Considering how long of a great friendship Seigi had with her, her brutal death truly broke him and turned him from someone who believed truly in justice to someone who only cared about revenge for her. - SelfDestruct

207 Top Speed - Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku
208 Bellemere - One Piece

I thinks bellemere is second saddest moment in one piece after Ace died.

209 Mariko - Elfen Lied

I feel so bad for Mariko! She was locked up in a cell for a long time and was hoping that her mother and father would one day come and take her home with them. Then, her jealously against Nana grew for she was able to call Kurama "papa" and she was about to be killed by him. Him saying that every moment of his life he had been thinking about her made me sad. Then the end when they both died together made me cry on the inside. At least the entire family will be together now...

As much as I loved this anime she was already how you say...dead...COME ON! SHE WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR!

Her final moments were spent with her true father, but I was so upset that Nana was left alone

I dislike her a lot.
This Anime character deserved her DEATH.
Her death wasn't sad at all:
She was mean, cruel, sadistic, psychopatic, insane, cold, and just an total imbecile.
Seriously, I don't understand why people pity her because:
She kills people for fun, and considers people as 'toys'.
That's a new level of insanity.
The only reason why people pity her is because she's confined to a wheelchair.
That's a good reason to pity her! (SARCASM)
All she wanted was someone to take care of her, while she has 26 arms.
That's just a whole new level of PATHETIC.
I disliked her so much, she prevented me from rewatching the anime.
Good Job, Mariko.
TheTopTens doesn't like you.

210 Presea - Magic Knight Rayearth
211 Yukiko Hirohara - 11eyes
212 Shirley Fenette - Code Geass R2 Shirley Fenette - Code Geass R2 Shirley Fenette is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

It was the only death that actually had me up in tears (Other than Lelouch's Death. ) All she wanted was to confess her feeling to him, even though he died the very last episode though. (Or at least I think he's dead. People are saying that he has Both the "code" and "geass." Now that I think about it, I think that's why the anime's named Code Geass.

She was too sweet and innocent to die. All she wanted to do was do everything she could to help the man she loved. And she was brutally murdered for it.

Her death is so bad I remembered that it was the first time I cried for an anime (after that I was pretty much tearing up a lot on anime) but her death changed Lelouch but that does not excuse the fact that it is just so bad

I secretly hoped that they would end up together and he would redeem himself after what happened to euphie but of course...make me cry you bastards

217 Ulqiorra - Bleach

I personally, really like Ulquiorra. I mean, just some part of his cold and insolent attitude appealed to me. He spent so much time with Orihime and he had finally had a heart, and then, Ichigo, just becomes so crazy powerful and kills him. I was so happy when he got a heart, because I was like "YAY, now he'll become human and happy" but NO, Ichigo kills him. I like Ichigo and all, but, Ulquiorra's death was another one in Bleach that was unfair.

The setting.. The music.. The way Inoue spoke to him and reached him in his last moments.. It's... Heartbreaking.. Saddest death in Bleach ever..

It really is sad that his death is not in the top ten. The way in which he extends his hand towards Inoue and the manner in which Inoue said I am not scared is something which I can't forget till date. He was the coolest Espada and Inoue and he would have made a great couple... - Hellblazer94

Saw the episode today, the saddest I've been in two years

218 Carla Yeager - Shingeki no Kyojin

Seriously. SERIOUSLY. That was the most disturbing and sad death scene I've ever seen. It's a very powerful scene that can pierce your heart with strength. I'm still chocked... Sometimes I cry without realize I'm crying only when I think of this scene...

This SHOULD be number 1. Why? It actually made me CRY. It's so intense, thinking that Eren saw EVERYTHING. This triggered his hatred towards the titans, They did a good job portraying Hannes' humanity; by displaying his fear. Vote up, because I know, this brought you to tears too.

How is this 254?! People that didn't even die are on top of this death that left an early impact

263? This was so so sososososoo sad. Marco's death wasn't half as sad as this one. it hurted me

219 Winry's Parents - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Her parents chose to stay behind and help the Ishvalins, their deaths were horrible they saved Scar who went into a blind rage killing them. - egnomac

220 Yamcha - Dragon Ball Z Yamcha - Dragon Ball Z Yamcha (ヤムチャ, Yamucha) is a Bandit and a main protagonist in the Dragon Ball manga and in the anime Dragon Ball, and later a supporting protagonist in Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super, with a few appearances in Dragon Ball GT. He has black hair and has a scar across his eye and cheek.

Why is he on this list? He got pwned by a saibamen instantly. Oh? We're talking about his other death?... He was turned into chocolate by Buu and was eaten... Wait, are we talking about Team Four Star's version where he hung himself? That's actually pretty funny.

He is one of the very few characters who are more worthless than Krillin.

Man no one cared about his death for being useless so why is he on this list?


How can you say no one cared about his death that's complete BS when Yamcha died Puar and Bulma were in tears even Krillin was upset. - egnomac
