Saddest Anime Deaths


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Leone - a Name Game Kill Leone - a Name Game Kill

I almost thought that Leone would survive the series, having the regeneration abilit, and then Honest shot her. I really loved her, and I cried like a baby when she died, but at least she killed Honest, and even managed to live a few more hours. It just sucks that she couldn't finish her fight with Run.

I thought she wasn't going to die so that's why she didn't feel like getting drunk because she felt pain from the bullets

Shock factor alone made her death incredibly sad. We all expected Leone to live, but she's truly forgotten in death.

Glad she gets to kill the main villain at the end

123 Eren's Chee-Burg - Attack on Titan Junior High

Out of all the anime deaths I have seen, this one shook me the most. It was so sad I cried for 483 days. Truly a beautifully depressing death and one that I will remember in my heart for years to come

It was depressing.

Whoever put this here needs to die

I feel bad for the Chee-burg...

124 Lindow Amamiya - God Eater Lindow Amamiya - God Eater

It's likely SelfDestruct added him here, but it was for good reason. Man, I was hoping Lindow could somehow beat Pita and still make it out alive, but my God, when I saw his God Arc in Pita's mouth, I should have known Lindow was dead by that time. So many death flags... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

125 Sakura Oogami - Dangan Ronpa

I loved Sakura so much. Then she died when I was starting to love her even more

126 Nia Teppelin - Gurren Lagann Nia Teppelin - Gurren Lagann Nia Teppelin is a fictional character in the anime series Gurren Lagann, known in Japan as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, animated by Gainax and co-produced by Aniplex and Konami. It was also directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and written by veteran playwright Kazuki Nakashima.

Nia should be in the top 10 (SPOILER ALERT)
After the anime ended Nia and Simon were supposed to be married, in all actuality they did get married at the very end, but right after this happened she vanished, as when Simon and everyone finally got her back they had to destroy that which was keeping her alive, thus they killed her life support, out of pure power of will she managed to stay with Simon for a while, and after this poor guy already lost Kamina and Yoko didn't like him because she was into the deceased Kamina all you could do was hope Simon would finally get some peace, but then Nia vanishes, aka; dies, as well. This was more than just depressing, I cried for a few days over this and became suicidal. This affected me almost as bad as Negisa and Ushio's deaths from Clannad did.

Kamina died to further Simon's growth as a protagonist and to push the theme that you need to believe in yourself in order to actually achieve your goals. Nia died to break the hearts of not just Simon, but the entire audience, especially due to the timing... - Shinygami

I thought she was awesome I was sad when she died. And it kinda made me mad because simon went through all of that literately travelling the entire universe, fought a god like being, sacrificed everything lost almost everyone else he cared about, and then she fades away and he's like okay cool whatevs...

127 Shiro - Ao No Exorcist

This should be number one on the list!

This is so heartbreaking, Shiro don't forget died saving Rin and even though they weren't actual father and son he says that Rin is his son and I just broke down when Rin cried. Rest in peace Shiro... T_T

Shiro is my number 1 for saddest deaths ever. When sastan takes over his body and attempts to put Rin back to gehenna he sacrifices hiself to save rin and says 'No.. No.. He is MY son.. ' when rin started crying I started crying and when Yukio came in and saw his father lying there dead I was so overwhelmed with tears. Should be way higher up on this list.

128 Rolo Lamperouge - Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2

WHAT THE HECK? THIS SHOULD BE AT LEAST BELOW 50! Rolo died just to save his foster brother Lelouch who was just using and manipulating him the whole time! Then right before Rolo died he said Lelouch that he lied about using him. Then Lelouch agreed. Right after he died Lelouch revealed that he lied once more just so Rolo may die in peace. Come on! The ost playing "If I were a bird" striked the feels!

Rolo deserves to be NUMBER ONE saddest deaths. When he died I locked myself in my room - and cried. His last words to his "nii-san" were so emotional and so sad. Rolo is the only one who TRULY saw Lelouch for what he was. Kind and gentle. Farwell, Rolo Lamperouge...

Man, when he died, I started crying for him. although he killed shirley, it was just for lelouch and he went to so much extents to protect and help lelouch. I really didn't believe it when I saw this wasnt here nor SAO's Sachi

129 Peko Pekoyama - Super Dangan Ronpa 2 Peko Pekoyama - Super Dangan Ronpa 2

Though Peko's death isn't that prominent in the series, I found myself in tears especially during her execution where Kuzuryuu tries to save her. SHE DIED THINKING THAT SHE KILLED HIM, and she murdered someone just so Kuzuryuu could get off the island. I can't believe that she thought of herself as a tool, and even used her dead body to protect Kuzuryuu from getting killed in her execution. It broke my heart

I feel u

130 Hannes - Attack On Titan
131 Ayumi Tsuwabuki - Kaze no Stigma

I felt pretty sorry for her treated like garbage for all of her life and when she died it was very sad in ways she like the little sister Ren never had and Ren really loved her she was a sweet little girl had to sacrifice her to save Ren and the others Ren tried to save her but Cloud'ent

132 Krillin - Dragon Ball Z Krillin - Dragon Ball Z Krillin (クリリン, Kuririn) is a supporting protagonist in the Dragon Ball manga, and the anime series Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super. more.

This death was first shown in Dragon Ball, and since this show was mostly in your childhood, you never expected it... It's sad because Krillin is a main character.. And it drop your tears.

Goku death should be here when he died to save earth from cell.

Which one of his death(S) was sad specifically? - RalphSaad

Yeah yeah! He is always reborn. His first death was sad but after constantly reusing Dragon Balls, I am like "meh. It's not like he is gone forever." - SelfDestruct

133 Lalah - Mobile Suit Gundam
134 Mikage Celestine - 07 Ghost

This was a very emotional death for me, because he saved his best friend Teito from possibly being killed and he even sacrificed his family for his best friend saying they would understand his decision. When his best friend found out he was posessed by Ayanami (the man who killed his father). He and I were heartbroken and when he died my soul died a little with him, because I was so attached

Teito's only friend in his life who sacrificed so much just for him is gone now and that basically torn Teito's heart. Plus, Mikage's death was caused by him being manipulated by Ayanami because he refused to surrender Teito to the military. If that's not true friendship then I don't know what is.

135 Kite - Hunter x Hunter

I was so happy thinking he would be a recurring character.

136 Cal Devens - Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom

I was destroyed when she died if reiji had just said that he thought she was dead and maybe had expressed a little happiness that she was alive it would have been all 3 phantoms against inferno. But instead he acts like he was guilty and in all honesty forces her into a duel in which he wins.

Every main character death was a tearjerker

What phantom of the opera he is alive

Wow. To die in the hands of someone you love is always heart breaking, but for Cal, it was the only option left... and death was the only way for her to finally tell Reiji how she felt about him. T_T

137 Rider - Fate/Zero

He know that he's going to die but he never gave up until the end

138 Furude Rika - Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni

That little girl was adorable, but now she's up in heaven with her parents. Damn it, Shion, Mion.

Even though she always came back in the resets, and survived in the end, it was really sad all the times she was killed. It was sad when she felt like giving up trying to finally stop the great Hinamizawa disaster, and all the times her hopes of living were crushed. It's sad when Shion and Takano kill her. Plus she's so cute! Nipaa!

139 Shusei Kagari - Psycho-Pass

Not only the most cheerful (with shady background) on the show died, but also none never find out his body, everybody thought he just went missing or escaped, he did not even have a proper closure. Worst anime death ever!

You know what made it even more tragic and sad? The fact that he died smiling. That ripped my heart apart. Also, the background music definitely had something to do with the tears running down my face.

THIS SCARRED ME FOR LIFE! He was so perfect and funny and the "happy" that the show just needed and then boom no more Kagari. They didn't even get closure!

I don't know why this is not on here

140 Nui Harime - Kill la Kill Nui Harime - Kill la Kill

Literally one of the the saddest anime deaths I've ever seen. I know she was a villian and all, but she was still my favorite character, and who wouldn't cry at their favorite character's death?

I wanted her to DIE! She shouldn't even be in the list!

You're kidding me, right? I WANTED NUI TO DIE. The only sad part was that Ryuko didn't kill her herself. Instead, Nui just sacrifices herself to help Ragyo.
