Saddest Deaths In Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood


The Top Ten

1 Maes Hughes Maes Hughes Maes Hughes is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

He was the only character that actually stayed dead in the show, only good guy who died.

"Mommy, why are they burying Daddy? "


It seems like it's started to rain

I don't watch this anime but I saw this scene and it was really sad...Elica was saying that he didn't finish his work and he needs to finish it, and didn't know what was really happening. That was the saddest thing about it, but just the fact that this character died is sad, because I have seen scenes of this character and he was great. ;_;

BRO, wHy diD hE diE. IMmfA cRy

2 Greed

He was greedy for friends

If the first anime didn't exist, this would probably be first on the list. Greed in Ling's body when he died... I have no words

I cried and couldn't stop... the new greed in one of my favorite character! - UNKNOWNotaku

Greed was my all time favorite character and he was at his best when he was in ling's body I miss him

3 Van Hohenheim

His smiling death, ending song
and special credits showing flasbacks of his life afterwards... The brief scene reaching out to Trishas hand... Learning about his life, realizing he is just a poor guy who wants to live and die with his family... He had to learn to live with souls of his nation, talk with them and try to keep his sanity for years. How could you blame him for leaving his family? He sure is the deepest character.

He spent his entire life to save the country, he talked with all the should within him, placed them all the Nationwide, wanted just to live a normal life with this family and had to die alone with the grave of his wife, the second the music hits in it hurts to see the man died with a smile so real

So sad when pinokka said he died with a smile on his face. I teared up the skin on my hand just so I wouldn't cry. (My family makes fun of me for crying in movies). It's him, Nina, greed, or Hughes that was the saddest.

For me the most emotional death in the series, the one I cried at the most by far. The second the outro music hits, my heart sinks

4 Envy

SPOILER ALERT! You have been warned.

Envy death was by far the saddest one. His ultimate form is a giant lizard with MULTIPLE humans sticking out of it. in my opinion, this was his way of trying to get that human bond he envied.

He caused so much grief amongst the people by killing the little girl that caused the Ishvalen War, which led to Scar's hatred towards the state alchemists. That caused state alchemists to questioned their own morals. He killed Maes and told Mustang in an attempt to destroys Mustang humanity.

He caused so much discontent within the group of our heroes, that seeing them put aside their differences against a common enemy humiliated him. "How could these lowly creatures look down on me, ON ME?! When I easily tower over them! "

Then finally realizing that he himself was weak. That he was the pathetic creature. Him crying at the realization and everyone doing nothing but looking down on him.

The ultimate blow was him not being ...more

They were a psycho, and a murderer, and despite that I can't help but feel sorry about them. They hid their jealousy and misery under hatred and disgust for humans, even from themselves. I pity them.

Watched that episode and NEVER AGAIN. I was crying throughout the whole episode. I'm seriously not joking I cried for about 4 hours. I KID YOU NOT. HE'S MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER. LOVED EVERY SCENE HE WAS IN.

I'm currently up to that episode. And I can already tell you that I'm NOT looking forward to it, I've seen episode 53 (SPOILER ALERT) and that was really sad. Wish Envy lasted the whole season in Brotherhood.

5 Nina Tucker Nina Tucker

This is sad she was so nice but she finish like that, SHE HAVE 4years old why nina why?!

She god turned to a scary talking dog

I was really sad about this one. I had a friend cry over it.

The brutality of it was sad "daddy is hurting" it broke my heart to Nina and Alexzander died together but still super sad

6 Fu

Even worse was Greed/Ling's reaction. BOTH OF THEM cried out for Fu when he jumped at King Bradley, and even though Ling was practically a god he couldn't do anything to save his lifelong bodyguard but cry out for someone to help him. - llamakalamari

why him

7 Captain Buccaneer

Such a shame he has too die but what a way to go out!

8 Gluttony Gluttony

I want him to die because he killed all those many people he ate except The bad people

Gluttony wasn't my favorite character, but he is very cute when he gets hurt, like when Lan Fan and Ling starts beating him up, and he's crying out loud because he's getting hurt. His actual death, though, set me off my rocker when he begged for Lust, his mother figure, to come help him when he was being eaten by Pride.

I can't get over the fact that he eats if he dies it wouldn't be sad for me, although I’m not at that part yet. - Camaro6

It was so sad. he was crying out for pride to stop. it made me cry out

9 Martel

Her death was terrifying! Imagine being Al in that scenario!

Wrath sucks.

WHY IS MARTEL/MARTA NEVER APPRECIATED!?!? Her death was just as sad and cruel as Hughes and Nina!

I actually LIKED her (Liked). I HATE YOU FUHRER (or whatever) PRESIDENT!

10 Trisha Elric

It's so sad :( She just died out of the blue.

The Contenders

11 Winry's Parents
12 King Bradley King Bradley

His death in fmab made me tear up. I really didn't expect him to be so sentimental in his last moments... he was a rather tragic character if you think about it.

Take captain america but the serum can kill you, you become the ruler of a country trough bloodsheld and you can't choose anything in your life except your wife, that furher king bradley.

but you can 1 vs 1 a tank and block bullet with a sword so...

13 Barry the Chopper

Barry the Chopper was my favorite character because he was so funny, and I liked him as a character in general, but was kinda expecting him to die and didn't want him to. And when I saw that Lust didn't kill him when she clawed him into pieces I was so happy. BUT OF COURSE, HIS DUMB BODY JUST HAD TO FINISH THE JOB! WHY!

He was the sweetest character I’d ever seen. I was devastated when he died

I love Barry! I CRY

14 Bido

His last words get to me

He died thinking he found his friend. He was treated like dirt for being a chimera, and Greed was the only one to give him a chance. He found the new Greed, only to be killed by him. Those last words, "But Mr. Greed, I'm your friend," always get to me.

Why am I so sad over Bido's death?

15 Alexander

the dog

16 Solf J. Kimblee Solf J. Kimblee Solf J. Kimblee is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

Awesome last stand in his fight "against" pride!
It gave me the chills!
"You don't understand Edward Elric! "
*waves as he vanishes into oblivion*

17 Edward Elric Edward Elric Edward Elric, commonly nicknamed Ed, is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

Why? He doesn't die in this version. - BreakerOfStone

18 Izumi Curtis Izumi Curtis Izumi Curtis is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

Why is she here?

19 Roy Mustang Roy Mustang Roy Mustang is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

Please tell me this is a troll item - Camaro6

20 Lust

Lust was just the most formulated out of the homonculi and deserved more time to grow

I think she should have stayed to at least episode 23

First to die it wasn't sad SHE JUST NEEDED TO STAY LONGER

First to go in brotherhood

21 Alphonse Elric Alphonse Elric Alphonse Elric, commonly called Al, is a fictional character in the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

Wait, he dies? - Camaro6
