Top 10 Saddest Monster Movies

Even movies that involve giant destructive monsters can be tear-fests.

The Top Ten

1 Godzilla vs Destroyah Godzilla vs Destroyah Product Image

The most emotional death of an iconic character of all times. Godzilla is the best monster. His death was a huge deal to the entire world back in 1995. The news, the newspaper, the channels, everything! It was a big deal that will Godzilla die in the film. And watching this film. I cried so much that Godzilla melt down with a very soft roar. This definitely deserves number 1 always. Sorry Kong fans.

The reason why I vote is because godzilla is my all time favorite monster next to gamera and I cried when godzilla melt this more sadder than godzilla 's deaths in gojira (1954) and the return of godzilla but all godzilla 's energy went to godzilla jr and became the new king and seated on his father 's throne this is a great way to end the heisei series all hail to the king!

Godzilla is on the verge of a nuclear meltdown, a monster is created by the weapon that killed the first Godzilla, and Godzilla's son dies. Such a emotional tear-fest.

This gets me wonderen if there are other destroyahs after destroyahs death?

2 Godzilla (1954) Godzilla (1954) Product Image

Watching Godzilla die was so sad.

3 King Kong (2005) King Kong (2005) Product Image

Much sadder than Destoroyah and that rubbish film with a fat iguana called Godzilla in it.

When King Kong died, I'm pretty sure the whole audience were reaching for the tissues.

That ending it's just beautiful in a very painful way.

Put this in number one please.

4 Rebirth of Mothra Rebirth of Mothra Product Image

Mothra's death made me cry more than Kong or Godzilla surprisingly. I cried so hard when I see this scene...Put this on number 1.

Although I hate this film, Mothra's death was pretty sad. I feel sorry for Mothra Leo.

5 The Return of Godzilla The Return of Godzilla Product Image

The ending...made most of us cried. The US Version makes it more sad than the Japanese Version. Especially the Godzilla screaming while falling into the Volcano. And Raymond Burr’s speech, what can I say. It makes the US version more emotional. Even though the Japanese Version is far superior, the US Version has a better ending.

6 Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S Product Image

Sadder than Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla 3. Because the 3 obvious Kaijus (Godzilla, Mothra, and Mechagodzilla 3) died in this film. I simply cry a lot. Mothra’s death is the saddest thing about this movie. Mechagodzilla comes so close to her, because they both risk their lives to stop Godzilla. I’d only wish they this version of Mechagodzilla was in Final Wars. But sadly no.

7 Rodan Rodan Product Image

Seeing they one rodan commit suicide to be with its mate is very sad

8 Pacific Rim Pacific Rim Product Image

The relationship between Yancy and Raleigh seems genuine. So when Yancy is killed by Knifehead, Raleigh is devastated. Even the soundtrack of that part is called "For My Family" and well worthy of that title.

9 King Kong (1933) King Kong (1933) Product Image
10 The Host The Host Product Image

A monster kidnaps a man's daughter and the man tries to save her. I've never heard of that happening before. But still pretty sad.

The Contenders

11 King Kong (1976) King Kong (1976) Product Image
12 Godzilla (1998) Godzilla (1998) Product Image

The death of godzilla in the end still pulls my heart strings. From the music to such a mighty beasts glory falling. Just remembering it fall to the ground and close it's eyes against the soundtrack makes my eyes tear up to this day.

WHAT this is your number 1! Zilla just let her babies die godzilla vs DESTROYAH! Should have been 1 Godzilla could kill zilla

Zilla tries to avenge his babies, but he fails. So sad :(

13 Godzilla (2014) Godzilla (2014) Product Image

The female MUTO's sadness over the deaths of her young seems genuine. It's a shame she didn't get to avenge her children before she died at the hands of Godzilla.

14 Cloverfield Cloverfield Product Image

Get this: The monster is a baby.

15 Gamera the Brave Gamera the Brave Product Image

Gamera's death..*Sniff

16 Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla Product Image

Kiryu is built from the first Godzilla's bones and is deployed to kill Godzilla, but memories of his death haunt him and he rampages. That's pretty sad.

17 Terror of Mechagodzilla Terror of Mechagodzilla Product Image
18 Godzilla vs Neo Baltan
