Saddest Moments of the Fairy Tail Anime

At this list, we will vote for the saddest moments of Fairy Tail. Warning! This list contains so many spoilers if you haven't watched the whole anime.

The Top Ten

1 Ultear's Sacrifice

The fact that she felt she had done nothing and that her life was only worth a minute and that she felt worthless and didn't feel she deserved to live anymore made me cry for so long. In that one minute, she saved so many people, including Gray. She caused them to see their future and didn't die because they knew what they had to avoid. The fact that she felt so worthless made me cry so much. When I saw Gray crying when he saw that Ultear had sacrificed herself so he could live, along with others, he felt guilty because he felt he is always the cause of people's deaths, like UI's. He felt it was his fault, he didn't like that people always sacrificed themselves for him to live, felt it was all his fault, which made me cry so much I couldn't even take it. I just burst into tears, I felt I could relate to both of them a lot. They both have gone through so much and I can really relate to them. - PerfectlyPink1210

I cried my heart out

Ultear tought that she doesn't deserve to live anymore and turned the clock back at the cost of her life. After casting the spell, she looked at the clock with her last strenght and saw that she was only able to turn back the clock for a minute. While she was felling down, she tought that she couldn't save anyone. However, all the wizards saw their future and didn't die. - Tuana123

2 Silver's Death

For me, it's the saddest moment of whole the series. - Tuana123

If you know Gray's full story, you cannot not cry on this one.

Can't hold the tears

3 Igneel's Death

Igneel,the dragon who raised Natsu, got out of Natsu's body in order to stop Face and fight Acnologia. However, he got killed by Acnologia and Natsu was forced to watch his death without being able to do anything. The sad thing is that Natsu was looking for him after he got lost and had so much things to talk with him. - Tuana123

4 Aquarius' Key Being Broken

While Lucy was fighting with all the Tartaros, he had to break Aquarius' key in order to defeat them and save his friends from Alegria. - Tuana123

5 Future Lucy's Death

Future Rogue attempted to kill Present Lucy but Future Lucy jumped in front of her and took the attack instead. Happy's speech was so emotional. - Tuana123

6 Lucy's Father's Death

After the 7 years time skip, Lucy looked for her father but she found out that he died 3 months ago. - Tuana123

7 Erza's Funeral
8 Lisanna's Death
9 Jellal Being Arrested
10 Zera disappears

Why is Fairy Tail Zero so underrated when it comes to feels? The whole arc was feels.

The Contenders

11 Cait Shelter's Secret

Cait Shelter wasn't a real guild and all the members were just the spirits. - Tuana123

12 Laxus Watching the Fantasia Parade
13 Simon's Death
14 Loke's Almost-Death

Loke was definitely One of my favorite anime characters, at the time. I got extremely emotional when he was dying. I teared up, a lot. I rewatched this scene at least five times. Honestly, I think a lot of these are sadder than Ultears sacrifice. Nightmares death [thing] made me cry. In my opinion... Aquarius' key being broken was probably the one that made me cry the most. Loke x Lucy FOREEVER-

15 Laxus Kicked Out
16 Gajeel Almost Drowns

When levy saves him, is probably my favorite Gale scene of all time. It was sad, because I thought they were both going to die. Almost gave me a heart attack.

17 Sherria Gives Up Her Magic

When Wendy and Sherria fights DiMaria, Sherria unlocks her 3rd origin with help of the Ultear illusion. DiMaria had god soul so Sherria sacrificed her magic (price to pay for 3rd origin) and used god slayer magic on DiMaria and defeated her. It was so sad for me especially when she said "Magic can't hold a candle to LOVE! " What an incredible shipper! (lol)
