Saddest Movie Deaths


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Ricky Baker (Morris Chestnut) - Boyz in the Hood

The reason this is so upsetting, is not only because he had a ticket out, but because this same situation happens to innocent inner city kids every day in America.

I shed three tears for Jack Dawson. I bawled my eyes out for Ricky Baker. That should tell you something.

It is so gut wrenching to see someone with so much promise be taken away with needless gang violence

He had the ticket and was smoked by a sawed off.43. This left doughboy and Tre confused.

82 Dr. Sersawa - Godzilla 1954
83 Godzilla - 1954
84 Percy Wetmore (Doug Hutchison) - The Green Mile
85 Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) - Transformers: The Movie Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) - Transformers: The Movie Optimus Prime is a fictional character from the Transformers franchise. Optimus Prime is consistently depicted as having strong moral character, excellent leadership, and sound decision-making skills, and possesses brilliant military tactics, powerful martial arts, and advanced alien weaponry.

This was sad because Optimus Prime's death could have been prevented. Plus the way he turned black was just so morbid and disturbing.

The music was sad, the scene was sad, and the end of the scene was sad when his dying blinking eyes stop and he turns gray and dies.

His death was pretty sad although he was ressurected later on in the 3rd season.

I <3 Optimus Prime!

86 Yondu Udonta (Michael Rooker) - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

The scene, Peter's helplessness and Yondu's resignation, the funeral and the was all just perfect for one of the saddest cinematic moments ever, in my opinion.

His death was one of the saddest father and son moments of all time

87 Casey Becker (Drew Barrymore) - Scream

She was too much sweet to be killed - Alexandr

88 Yoda (Frank Oz) - Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

I know of someone who thought it was sad - hogwartsjedi

89 Dobby - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Dobby - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

Dobby, sweet sweet poor Dobby. Though he wasn't a major character his death had just as much an impact as Snape's

90 Johnny Cade (Ralph Macchio) - The Outsiders

Why is johnny so low on this list he should be in the top tens - cadespencer

I was really sad when Johnny Cade, my favorite character of the outsiders, died. He died saving kids from a burning church. He was only 16 years old when he died. Last words, "Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold." (Ponyboy was his best friend)


I cried so much when it happened. Johnny didn't deserve to die, it called self-defense. He was/is so nice, cute and has gone through too much to die. 16 years ain't long enough. Stay Gold🌅

91 Lawrence Talbot (Benicio Del Toro) - The Wolfman (2010)

Lawrence was always tortured in life, from his father's treatment of him to turning into a werewolf and killing innocents. The fact that he lost the woman he loves to the curse as well as his life just makes this a complete tragedy.R.I. P Lawrence

92 Norman Osborn / The Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) - Spider-Man
93 Littlefoot's Mom (Helen Shaver) - The Land Before Time

This film was one of the best films when I was younger and I remember always crying at this point and wanting to get little foot and help him the poor little soul

I remember the-a-a-a-at! So sad! Why do all the loving mothers die?

94 Tadashi Hamada (Daniel Henney) - Big Hero 6 Tadashi Hamada (Daniel Henney) - Big Hero 6 Tadashi Hamada is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 54th animated feature, Big Hero 6. The film is inspired by a Marvel comic book of the same name.

Pretty much every five minutes of the film made me cry but especially this death it didn't deserve to happen especially as the man was alive and safe

It was very sad. And through out the movie made it more sad. This made me cry.

95 Zilla - Godzilla
96 Darth Vader (David Prowse) - Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

What?! No Darth Vader on this list? When you see him die with defeating the Emperor, accepting his son's and own fate you wanna cry. Especially when you look back and relieve what you witnessed with that character in the episodes before - Philipp606

The main character in the whole star wars series died!
Because of that stupid emporor! He is strong in the force than
anyone in the star wars and his light saber thecnique is
better than anyone! come on! It depressed me for a week!
Why is that dumb green mile sadder?! This should be number 1!

97 Godzilla Jr. - Godzilla vs Destroyah
98 Justin Bieber - Zoolander 2

99 Iron Giant (Vin Diesel) - Iron Giant

This movie has always resonated with me i.e. because of how the Giant saw a felt more emotion in such a brief time frame then most people, Its ironic that the monster made to kill humans becomes more human than the people around it

He didn't even die though - cadespencer

I... Am... Superman...
