Saddest Anime Deaths


The Contenders: Page 14

261 Taromaru - Gakkou Gurashi

This may just be the saddest part of the whole series and even of 2015. We got so attached to this cute little puppy and seeing him die the way he did was just too much to bare.

262 Hiruzen Sarutobi - Naruto Hiruzen Sarutobi - Naruto V 1 Comment
263 Rin Nohara - Naruto

It was more tragic on Kakashi's end. But a girl who dies at the hands of the boy she loves so much, yeah, pretty sad. like, damn. but no tears there. just lingering sadness.

264 Nagato - Naruto Nagato - Naruto

Saddest thing in Naruto. Gives his life to revive everyone in the Leaf Village. All he wanted was peace and when he was telling Naruto about his history I was just creating bowls of water with my tears :(

265 Kyoko Honda - Fruits Basket
266 Masaoka Tomomi - Psycho Pass

He died saving his son from a bomb...with his son right before him. If that look on Gino's face didn't make you cry rivers, you have something seriously wrong with you.

267 Saber - Fate/Stay Night Saber - Fate/Stay Night Saber 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. She is the the Saber-class Servant of Kiritsugu Emiya during the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero and the Saber-class Servant of Shirou more.

I got destroyed by feels when she disappeared.

I was so shocked when she disappeared.

268 Amaha Masane - Witchblade

Similar to Inori from guilty crown.

272 Count Lionel - Venturian Battle

He is killed by a void monsterl. WHY!? :( - Extractinator04

273 Maria Ross - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

I might be wrong since I've yet to finish Brotherhood and am still on Season 3 but wasnt her death faked? As in it didn't happen and everyone just pretended it did?

274 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

275 Pico - Boku no Pico Pico - Boku no Pico

1. Didn't die
2. I would be happy if he did die

Guys he should at least be in the top 69 - nao

He's not dead...but if this thing died for real,the whole population of the planet would feel equally overjoyed. - Tia-Harribel


276 Presea - Magic Knight Rayearth
277 Raditz - Dragon Ball Z Raditz - Dragon Ball Z

I admit, he was evil and brutal, but he could have had a change of heart if given the chance; after all, Vegeta did. I LOVE Raditz! Even if he's dead in the anime, he's still alive in my heart. He should have been around longer. After all, he's Goku's brother. Raditz rules!

279 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

280 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
