Top 10 Saddest Star Wars Deaths
The Top Ten
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.
Very sad death, nearly made me cry ): - micahisthebest
The scene when Han dies in the force awakens made me cry almost
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
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
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. - Catlover2004
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 - ParkerFang
Who Padme Amidala - Iamaloser
Dude, 2 people, him and Darth Maul were unfortunate to only be featured in the phantom menace. Tragic
Who is this character? - Iamaloser
Saddest one:( he said he'd come back... he did... and he saw his mother... for the last time
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
One of the saddest if the saddest part in A New Hope
Hurts if you watched the prequel trilogy first.
He was a true Badass.
Love you Ben - pratham2025
Saddest death ever
But also the longest death.
Who Yoda - Iamaloser
Savage was a bad guy. But what made this death sad was because Darth Maul lost his brother - DoroExploro13
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. - micahisthebest
Clone Wars and the movies are two completely separate things. He died in the movies and he's alive in the Clone Wars. - PeeledBanana
He died in rebels
He's my favorite villian in star wars. - darthvadern
Why! He was probably my favourite character in the movie. - micahisthebest
"I am one with the force and the force is one 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.
Funny, sarcastic, and particularly sadistic. He didn't go down without a fight.
His sacrifice was so sad, he was my favorite character. :(
So sad, that he's on here twice.
THIS SHOULD BE UP HIGHER!
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
Padme and Darth Vader's death were sad, but this...(cry)... really hit me hard
Best clone ever
Saddest death ever
"The mission... the nightmares... they're... finally... over."
His death made me feel bad for boba
Who is Jango Fett - Iamaloser
His death isn't sad but it's the fact Boba's still a kid when he dies :(
She's not dead
Accalliy she is
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
Made me tear up to see Kanan-the rock who held up the Ghost crew sacrifice himself to save not only them but Hera’s unborn child, Jacen.
May the force be with you 😭
Died alongside Jyn alone in an embrace accepting their fated
He died saving everyone that makes his death even sadder - Legend1221
Even though he had the chance to escape the ship he stayed at his post untill his death showing his loyalty to the rebels
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 - MagmaFox
He's my faviroute jedi - Legend1221
The nightmares. They're, finally, over...
I challenge any of you to watch the entire scene of fives dying and not tear up, even better if you watch all of TCW before, makes his death so emotional and sad.
Who? - Midevilnight
So that's what his name was.. - Midevilnight
This is a happy death since he was the evil sith lord, glad he died, evil jerk. - PeeledBanana
Well, what 'death' are you talking about haha - micahisthebest
This guy was pretty funny, but he turned out to be evil. It was still pretty sad, though.
Looks likes someone saw the last jedi - wren6
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 - PackFan2005
He is not dead
Boba Fett is the best bounty hunter, why did he have to die
Boba fett did not die
