Saddest Movie Deaths


The Contenders: Page 5

81 William Wallace (Mel Gibson) - Braveheart William Wallace (Mel Gibson) - Braveheart William Wallace was a freedom fighter and a Scottish Commander during the first Scottish wars of Independence. V 3 Comments
82 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.

83 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!

84 Dr. Sersawa - Godzilla 1954
85 Godzilla - 1954
86 Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix V 1 Comment
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 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...

90 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

91 Norman Osborn / The Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) - Spider-Man
92 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?

93 Danny Vinyard (Edward Furlong) - American History X

I just watched this movie 10 minutes ago. I don't know why it took this long but this is definitely in my top 10 movies. Like that other guy said, it happened right after Derek got his family back. And 73? This should be at least in the top 15

This death is just so sad... No one saw it coming and it really re enforces the themes set throughout the movie. it happens just as derek gets out and gets his act together and tries to help danny.. so sad, not enough people talk about it

Possibly the saddest moment in movie history. Just as dereck gets his head and his family togeather, it all just falls apart

94 Thomas J. Sennett (Macaulay Culkin) - My Girl

Gosh, this movie is a tearjerker


95 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.

96 Zilla - Godzilla
97 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!

98 Godzilla Jr. - Godzilla vs Destroyah
99 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🌅

100 Padme Amidala - Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Padme Amidala - Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Padmé Amidala is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, appearing in the prequel trilogy portrayed by actress Natalie Portman.

It makes me wanna cry. So heartbreaking when she died after Luke and Leia were born. The funeral scene also is sad

The reason why she died made it so much worse.

Padme's death was the reason why Luke and Leia had to be seperated at birth.
