Top 10 Saddest Star Wars Deaths
I had always known that his death would of come. Didn't mean it wad any less shocking to see.
My friend who saw the movie with me on the other hand didn't see it come and her jaw dropped after watching favorite character die on screen.
I still yell at The Force Awakens, though we knew it was coming, since Harrison Ford didn't want the part anymore.
This scene was not surprising but hit me hard. I heard people screaming as his body fell in to starkiller base.
God, killed by his own son, and Chewbacca, Finn and Rey were watching helplessly.
Darth Vader had the saddest death of any character in movie history for me. He only turned to save his wife Padme Amidala. Just like I said in my Padme comment, once Padme died Vader truly was lonely, Obi-Wan would never forgive him, no Jedi would ever forgive him. The only reason Vader returned to the Light Side was because of his son Luke. Once he realized Luke was alive, he wasn't truly lonely in this world - IIBlizzxrd
His life was a mess
He started as a slave with no father
He got the title The ChOseN ONe
Then he lost his mother
He against the rule and married
He killed and led men to their death
He had a nightmare and no one but palpatine was there to help him
He slowly fallen to darkness and yet still no jedi there to help him
He couldn't save his love from death
He lost his humanity
His son redeemed him
He threw Palp, died seeing his son for the last time, brought balance to the force
Then Palp turned out alive and killed by a Mary Sue who bested some emodarksider on her first duel
It was a though pick, but I think that Darth Vader 's death is not just one of the saddest scenes in the Franchise, but also in all of movie History.
It was sad when Luke was trying to save him but couldn't. Probably the saddest death in the franchise.
Dude, 2 people, him and Darth Maul were unfortunate to only be featured in the phantom menace. Tragic
Before anyone says "she died of a broken heart", I'm just clarifying that Palpatine TRANSFERRED her life force into Anakin to keep him alive.
In my opinion Padme is the second saddest death in Star Wars. Not only did she give birth to Luke and Leia, she was the breaking point for Vader. Once Padme died Vader basically had Palpatine, but by then he knew that if he killed Palpatine, he would truly have no one. Padmes death was the moment of realization for Vader that he regretted EVERYTHING. - IIBlizzxrd
Such a strong woman until she got her heart broken. Made me cry like hell when she was still worried about Anakin on her deathbed, and used her last breath to inform Obi-Wan there was still good in Anakin.
She lost her love and didn't even get to raise her twins
Anakin promised to return to see her only for her to die in his hands. Her death plunged anakin into a blind rage of hate and grief this moment was the point he begun his decent to the dark side
If Anakin had Rey's healing powers (why does she have healing powers? She was way too powerful) Anakin could've saved his mom!
Saddest one:( he said he'd come back... he did... and he saw his mother... for the last time
Even though he committed so many atrocities he wasn't heartless because he still cared about his mother and brother plus his whole life has been a tragedy he was kdnapped as a baby by darth sidious, he lost his legs, his mother and brother were killed in front of him and he was trapped on a planet for years and then obi wan killed him and the way it went was sad. So this was a sad death.
Apparently he didn't die, as he came back in the Clone Wars. But yes, his death was sad since I wanted to see more of him in the movies.
Not really dead...Just like palatine. When a bad dude gets thrown down something why are they still alive?
During his last breaths, he wasn't feeling anger.
Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of that is. You must train yourself to let go. Of everything you fear to lose.
As a wide man (small green alien) once said "do or do not, there is not try'
But also the longest death.
Saddest death ever
HIS DEATH IS THE SADDEST! He is my favorite Jedi. Enjoy the High Ground. You are missed in the galaxy. Rest In Peace. You are a true hero. The perfect Jedi. Kind and selfless. Truly, he is one of the best. I cry every time. Saddest part in a new hope. The Force is with you forever. May it be with me forever.
Phoebe the 16-year-old History Queen, Hamilton lover, and Jedi master whose favorite movie is Star Wars
He was the best Jedi. If they did his fight with Darth Vader in 4 like his fight with Anakin in 3, that would've been really cool.
Hurts if you watched the prequel trilogy first.
He was a true Badass.
Love you Ben
It's not sad until you watch the prequels and/or clone wars
Savage was a bad guy. But what made this death sad was because Darth Maul lost his brother
Chirrut it gets bag out on head
Chrirut "Are you kidding me? I am blind"
"I am one with the force and the force is with me. I am one with the force and the force is with me."
When Chirrut died, it really got me. only timed I legitimately cried a bit when a character died in any Star Wars movie.
Why! He was probably my favourite character in the movie.
"I am one with the force and the force is one with me."
In the end he deserves the death he got. Fading and becoming a force ghost like that.
While he may not really be dead, it was sad nonetheless. Luke fading away right in front of the setting sun, it just jerked me, and I thought, “man, this is really it for him.”
WHY IS THIS SO LOW!?
He was the most important and iconic character EVER to exist in a Star Wars!
Yes, more than Han Solo.
R.I.P. Luke Skywalker 1977-2017
Funny, sarcastic, and particularly sadistic. He didn't go down without a fight.
His sacrifice was so sad, he was my favorite character. :(
She was a cool character in 4-6. But then 7,8 and 9 happened and she's flying in space. Weird.
The last original non droid character. The one and only Leia. :,( I cried.
His death made me feel bad for boba
His death isn't sad but it's the fact Boba's still a kid when he dies :(
She was happy that she and Cassian were able to transfer the Deathstar plans to the Rebels.
I have never so hard cried for a animated character in my life. This character is well written and so pure. It is absolutely heartbreaking to watch her die with the look of horror on her face. And Obi-Wan..you just want to cry for him..
This should be way up higher. Obi-Wan was forced to watch the woman he loved forever be stabbed and he couldn't do anything about it.
Guys, please. I actually cried
Visually breathtaking and Heartbreaking end to a character. In a very Jedi-like manner. Selfless and dutiful
He died seeing his friends for the last time. As he died his eyes turned aqua again
His sacrifice wasn't in vain. And the score really brought a few tear from me.
Super sad I wish the series was still going
He was the best character in 7-9. I'm sorry to all you Rey fans (I like Rey by the way) But Rey is crazy powerful! That part doesn't bother me the most...but the fact that her, poe, and Finn all stay the same! Theres no character development between those three. Kylo/Ben is the only one where we see change. His battle between good and bad throughout. And at the Be With Me part in The Rise Of Skywalker, he rose without Jedis helping him. They should've had Rey die instead of him (even though I think she's awesome) and why do they have healing powers now?
I personally think his loss was the saddest.
Died alongside Jyn alone in an embrace accepting their fated
He was happy that he and Jyn were able to transfer the Deathstar plans to the Rebels.
He died saving everyone that makes his death even sadder
Even though he had the chance to escape the ship he stayed at his post untill his death showing his loyalty to the rebels
"What did Darth Vader tell you about your father?" -Obi Wan
"He told me enough. He told me he was my father." -Luke
"No Luke, Darth Vader killed your father." -Obi Wan
"No. that's not true. that's impossible!" -Luke
The boy you trained, gone he is. Consumed by Darth Vader.
Anakin died because Vader consumed(ate) him.
You know why...
My favorite character. I cannot stand anymore to watch that scene and I made a story that he has a daughter named Jocelynne and he didn't die
M whatcha say
He was just blown up in the background while we all focused on Leia. I didn’t realize Ackbar died until I thought about it after I saw the movie
