Top Ten Saddest Moments from the "Ice Age" Franchise

The Top Ten

1 The Cave Painting Scene (Ice Age)

This scene should be number one. While the Diego's "death" was sad, he survived, so that doesn't count. This scene on the other hand, should take the cake. We get Manny who is the typical jerky/grumpy/distrustful (you know? ) character, but we learn why he is like that during this scene: despite his attempts to defend his wife and child from hunters, they both died while he is left to live without them. Ever since that day, he was afraid to get close to others in fear that history will repeat. - listotaku17

My heart breaks every time I see this scene. I pitied Sid on that only Diego and Pinkie could tell something was up with Manny.

One of the few decent things about the original Ice Age - darthvadern

I agree. Luckily he gets a wife and kid in the sequels.

2 Diego's 'death' (Ice Age)

Just sad sad Sad. The whole ordeal and buildup of Diego becoming friends w/ sid and many and too see a sacrifice like that...then to have him die in such a fashion that (even though it's a kids movie) you think Diego will never come back...thankfully he does though.

Honestly this momemt was kind off predictable somehow

But he didint die.

3 Manny & Sid Reunite Pinkie (The Kid) with His Father (Ice Age)

I don't think saddest is the correct word

It is a happy moment that the accomplished the goal, but when the kid hugs them in a tearful hits home.

4 Ellie's Flashback (Ice Age 2: The Meltdown)


Quite emotional - darthvadern

5 Buck Says Goodbye to Rudy (Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs)

...only to hear him and make the decision to go back. both moments are sad to me. Rudy is honestly the only 'family buck has in that world, so him leaving the tooth behind just seals the deal on the sadness. - RustyNail

6 The Asteroid 'collides' with Earth (Ice Age: Collision Course)

I found it more exciting than anything if you ask me - darthvadern

Basically the same situation/ feelings as the incinerator scene in Toy Story 3 - RustyNail

7 Nadia (Cave Woman) Disappears After Giving Pinkie (The Kid) to Manny (Ice Age)

I just don't understand why Manny didn't help her as well - darthvadern

I cried while watching that scene. 😢

8 Runar (The Kid's Father) Gives Up on Finding His Son (Ice Age)
9 Sid Says Goodbye to His Dino Kids (Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs)
10 Peaches' Birth (Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs)

Saddest? what? More like heartwarming - darthvadern
