Top Ten Saddest Deaths In Video Games

141 Kurow - Okamiden

In all honesty, this was the only scene in any video game I've played (and I've played a lot of them, mind you) that I genuinely cried at. Kurow was such a likeable character, and him being with you for a large portion of the game really makes you grow to care about him. In addition, his character arc is the largest and most compelling one in the game, and to see him die feeling happy to have lived and having committed a truly selfless act for the first time in his life, combined with the music and writing, makes this scene both genuinely sad and genuinely heartwarming, given the circumstances for his prior betrayal. All in all, this scene was, in my opinion, just perfect.

Okamiden's an excellent game, but underrated. Hardly anyone knows about Kurow's death. While your "main" partner, Kuni, ditches you early on, Kurow is with you more than any other partner in the game. He had a great personality and went through development, and you truly get to bond with him as if he was truly your friend. But then, he joined the dark side along with Kuni, and you're just asking "why? " But then near the end of the game he explains everything, that he was kinda born to die, but he was afraid of his destiny, so he ran away. But after seeing the resolve of people from his travels, he's willing to face his destiny. And it's not just Chibiterasu who kills him, you yourself, have to be the one to kill him. The story and the music in this game is brilliant, Kurow's an amazing character, and I still tear up when seeing his death scene. "Woohoo! What a rush! Ain't nothing gonna get in our way! "

Okamiden might be the cutest game ever, but this death scene really got the tears flowing. To those who haven't heard about this game, you should give it a shot. Like it's predecessor Okami, and many artists it wasn't really recognized until after it was already mostly dead.

142 Cleon - The Warriors
143 Cliff Hudson - Dead Rising

Sure he tried to kill you but only becaue seeing his grand daughter die in front of him and hearing her scream was too sad for him that his mind reverted to insanity and as he lay there after defeating him he shows you a picture of his grand kids and reverted back to sanity and dies

When I played this I felt guilty for killing him in the end of the boss fight.

144 Viola - The Witch's House

How sad her fate was sealed from the start

I cried so hard when I got the true ending... - Anonymousxx

145 KOS-MOS - Xenosaga

KOS-MOS sacrifices herself to buy Chaos and Nephilim the time they need and gets destroyed in the process. At the very end of the game after the credits have rolled you see what's left of her body floating through space. She then finally loses conciousness and closes her eyes.

What made this so sad for me was the fact she effectively dies after just understanding how to feel human emotion.

At least she is back in crossovers such as Project X Zone 2. But wait, that's another story...

146 Astrid - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I really liked astrid. In the end, she just did what she thought was best for her family. Personally I would have forgiven her. It really depressed me, and I shed a man tear when I saw her there on the ground, burning herself to make a contract for her own murder. I only killed her to end her pain. :(

Okay, I'll admit, I teared up when you have to kill her. Sure, she betrays you, but it really hurt. The Dark Brotherhood was my first guild and it will aways be my favorite.

147 Sgt. Jonathan Miller - Battlefield 3

He wanted to see his son on his birthday, but his team got overwhelmed and captured and then killed by Solomon while it was live on the Internet

148 Ignitus - The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

Well... Ignitus didn't die, he became the new Chronicler, but now I'm kind of wondering what happened to the Chronicler after that, and I also wanted to apologize in advance because I don't pay too much attention to the cutscenes.

You know, being a fan of the ps1 trilogy it is pretty sad to see a death in a spyro game. (although I wasn't crazy over the legend games)

THIS ONE! Oh, why I voted before? These things always happen to me!
Anyway, I am glad he became the new Chronicler. - keyson

149 Johnny Klebitz - Grand Theft Auto V Johnny Klebitz - Grand Theft Auto V

I was very shocked to see him get viciously glassed like that, but from what I gathered now is that since Liberty City has been wiped out by a tsunami, this caused him to go completely down to a path of disgrace becoming everything he used to hate and joined in taking drugs with Ashley. You might not believe this, but it is true.

150 Festus Krex - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

He was definitely the funniest member of the Dark Brotherhood. He was grumpy, but sarcastic and eventually warms to the dragonborn. Seeing him dead outside the sanctuary was painful. The mightiest man may be slain by one arrow. Festus Krex was slain by 20.

151 Michael de Santa - Grand Theft Auto V Michael de Santa - Grand Theft Auto V

His death was quite sad because he had just gotten his life together and then that happens

If you kill Michael then everyone will hate you.

152 Grovyle - Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 Grovyle - Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2

I cried when grovyle died. He was such a great guy and he willingly sacrificed himself for you.

This one made me cry... He sacrificed him self for your character!

He didn't actually die though.

153 Tippi and Count Bleck - Super Paper Mario

Alright. A couple that was separated by a cruel fate (the woman became a butterfly and the man attempted to destroy al worlds in despair) and barely found each other, having to marry to destroy an artifact nalmed Chaos Heart, thus sacrificing their lives, is at number 196. Yeah.

The sacrifice they made was bold, and the way they were once a couple made it all the sadder that they were dying together.

Wait a second this is an E rated game why does it have so much dark stuff

154 Big Smoke - GTA: San Andreas

He is having his 2 NUMBER 9s A NUMBER 9 LARGE A NUMBER 6 WITH EXTRA DIP A NUMBER 7 2 NUMBER 45s ONE WITH CHEESE - AND A LARGE SODA in heaven bless his soul.

155 Faize - Star Ocean: The Last Hope

SAME! Faize was so cute and his death was so unfair. Who goes through the same thing and only on dies? How does that happen?

In the ending scene, the ground was breaking and Faize fell and Edge was devastated. He even went down with Faize.Surprisingly, Edge lived. I mean, really? They went through the same crap and only one of them dies? What the heck?! And Faize was SO cute.

I had such a huge crush on Faize I was depressed when he died, 'Kay!

His house prospering, until the creeper showed up and ruined it.

She tried her hardest to activate the DETERMINATION she needed to continue the fight and live on, only to end up melting, repeating the same words of desolation; "I won't die...I won't die..."
