Saddest Deaths In Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

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

At the start its O.M.G He might live aspect, then its NOOO! He was suck a lovable character talking about his family, along side the more sirius Colonel he was SO FUNNY! His daughter at the funeral crying saying that know can burry him mades his death so much sadder, after that its Ed and Al not knowing about his death and saying they will thank him was devastating. He's death was so post to be making u cry, there was a reason he was so lovable. This also help the audience connect to the Colonel since Ed wasn't helping and lead to ETHYS DEATH

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

"Mommy, why are they burying Daddy? "


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. ;_;

It was pretty sad, but then Elica starts crying about how "Daddy still needs to finish his work! He hasn't finished yet! " (I know, not a direct quote.) but that part got me. That was so sad that Hughes was leaving his family! And he got killed so brutally!


His death was so sad and yet I laughed because of his personality and how the whole thing just kind of came. But his death was definitely super sad.

I'll admit, Greed wasn't my favourite character but he wasn't my least favourite either. But what really got me to cry was when right before he died, he realized that he had everything that he wanted in life. The irony that Greed was satisfied with the things he had right as he died is what got me to bawl my eyes out. Greed's death was by far one of the saddest deaths and no one can tell me otherwise.

I couldn't stop crying. Greed is my favourite character, and his death was the saddest thing I've ever seen. I can't even, I'm going to cry...

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

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.

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

Really sad death, handled very well. No tacky cheesy quotes. Just Van talking to his wife's grave before slowly passing away.


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

He was actually my favorite character, which is kinda weird I know. I really liked his fun and sarcastic personality and I cried for a solid day after he died.

Envy’s death was definitely the saddest. Elicia was my favorite character, but envy was next in line. I hate it when people say that envy was such a horrible character.

Envy is my favorite character and his death was the saddest. His death was worse than Hughes, and I’m sorry for saying this, but Hughes did die verrry dramatically. So that’s why I vote on envy on everything. BEST CHARACTER EVER

Nina Tucker Nina Tucker is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

I don't know why people get so mad at scar, think about the life she would have to live if she was still alive and a Chimera. She would be tortured so badly. I get it- her death was sad, but please don’t get mad at scar he’s too awesome of a character.

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

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

She god turned to a scary talking dog


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.

Captain Buccaneer

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


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

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


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

Her death was so sad! King Bradley is such a jerk

Her death was so sad it had me nearly crying I’m going to kill king Bradley in his sleep.

Wrath sucks.

Trisha Elric

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

The Contenders
Winry's Parents
King Bradley King Bradley is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

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...

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.

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!

His personality was very likable for a murderer. He was so funny I was laughing so hard until he died, then I was crying.

He was such a funny character but his real body was not stupid thing

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


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?

His last words get to me

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! "

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.

Why is he here

Maria Ross

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 go in brotherhood

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