222 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

223 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

224 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

It is genuinely shocking that in Brohood, Scar killed Winry's parents and Nina, all the more reason for the Elrics to hate him. - Nononsensecapeesh

225 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

226 Vegeta - Dragon Ball Z Vegeta - Dragon Ball Z Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

I'm basing this off of his Buu Saga death. He finally defeated Goku, his long time rival. He realized that he finally loved Bulma and Trunks. And last but not least, he realized that people on Earth were worth saving. Once he realized all those things he realized that his life isn't the most important thing and sacrifices himself. Truly amazing!

Sad. He was even crying when killed by Frieza because of his race being killed by him.

Sad, too sad. its always tear rending when a rock hard heart dies for others

Yay he dies

228 Madoka Kaname - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Madoka Kaname - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Madoka Kaname is the titular protagonist of the 2011 anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica and its related media.

She really didn't die but I was still in tears when her family couldn't remember her.

Stupid she wanted to die

She rewrote the whole universal laws while she destroyed herself from existence and became a concept. Poor Homura...She was crying as she hug the ribbons Madoka gave her after Homura, Mami, Kyoko (Sayaka died)fought a Wraith(spoilers for those who haven't saw the whole thing). - MLPFan

235 Greed - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

"Thank you... and good-bye... my friends."

(FMA: Brotherhood) Greed ironically was the only homunculus to truly become human, by sacrificing himself at the most critical moment. When he was dying, he realized he had actually gotten everything and the one thing he really wanted in life. Greed's evolution throughout the series was such a heavy emotional arc despite his cool and calculating bravado that there were moments you felt like crying for him, but his end had to have broken any barriers you might have had to that point. If Envy's death did not break you down, Greed's death is certainly the crushing blow.

Greed was the only good Homunculus, and he was a character with a unique personality. He made the final battles a bit interesting, but, sadly he died. The only case I like a greedy character. Why do characters with great personalities die in FMAB, First Hughes, now Greed

I cried. I've only ever cried because y we of a show when (spoilers) Amy and Rory died, Nina Tucker, Maes Hughes, and Greed. He was a better "person" near the end because he was influenced by Ling, one of my favorites. Then at the end Ling says that he rubbed off on him. I sobbed.

He's the best homonculus - nao

236 Envy - Fullmetal Alchemist

As soon as Ed figured out he was jealous of humans, Envy couldn't stand the humiliation of being beaten on top of being figured out by what it considered a 'lesser species'. In its weakened, helpless state it couldn't fight back. It started crying and denying it, even though it knew it was true. Envy wouldn't have their pity and wouldn't be looked down on so it tearfully ended its own life. Even Ed was somewhat shocked and mildly upset at its suicide!

Just seeing him let his heart out and cry about it really said something more about his character and made the death bitter sweet

245?! This is the most saddest death I've ever come across since I saw Lelouch die in front of his sister. I cried for about 2 minutes. Whereas this one I was crying in a pool of tears. Yes Envy is my fave character in FMA. I cried throughout the entire episode. This really needs to be much more higher on the list

What an amazing way to go out

237 Yukari Isshiki - Slave Sisters
238 Soichiro Yagami - Death Note

I did not cry at L's death, but to me, his death was the most traumatic. It's the fact that he died living a lie, thinking his son was innocent, that his son wasn't kira, that was really tear-jerking. And poor light, he really respected his father, and to live with the experience.

It is just so sad that he was a good man with great honor and the son that he loved and cared for so much was the kira that he has been struggling and suffering against. even though l said so he never believed light was kira and was killed beleiving in a lie. and his own son light was going to kill him as well

239 Antauri - Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!
240 Aru Akise - Future Diary Aru Akise - Future Diary

It was sad but in my opinion, not the saddest anime death. I actually found his death satisfying but that's because he was beheaded and I'm weird like that.

Akise the reason I continued the show :/

I agree, this death was the end of me.

I was so happy when he died. I never want to see his face again
