Saddest Deaths In Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood


The Top Ten

1 Greed

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

Dude... that part's just so SAD!

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

2 Maes Hughes Maes Hughes

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!

Because of his death I quit the anime for a whole month

Why are they burying daddy

One of the saddest deaths

3 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

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.

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.

4 Nina Tucker Nina Tucker

Nina is such a sad name now...

Nothing can top how BRUTAL that overkill was.

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

5 Van Hohenheim

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

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

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.

The fact that Pinako was the only one to see him die had me weeping, her reaction summed up how everyone around him would react.

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*

9 Captain Buccaneer
10 Winry's Parents

The Contenders

11 Martel

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!

Wrath sucks.

12 Barry the Chopper

I love Barry! I CRY

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

Why is he here

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

14 Bido

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 Lust

I think she should have stayed to at least episode 23

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

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

First to go in brotherhood

16 Dolphin Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

Best charcter put up biggest fight against father

:'( WHY


17 Sloth Sloth Sloths are mammals classified in the families Megalonychidae and Bradypodidae, including six extant species.

To quote a certain ninja that has to deal with a hyperactive Thor lady:
"I still don't think that's what a sloth sounds like."

18 Alexander

the dog

19 Light Yagami Light Yagami Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

He is not in fmab lol

20 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.
21 Gluttony Gluttony

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.

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

22 Izumi Curtis Izumi Curtis

Why is she here?

23 Shao May
