Top 10 Saddest Villain Deaths

The Top Ten

1 Godzilla - Godzilla (1954)

Godzilla inspires so many characters should not be categorized as a villain

He was a villain in the 1954 film, but a hero in the other films.

2 Indominus Rex - Jurassic World Indominus rex was the latest attraction in Jurassic World. The hybrid was created by combining the genetic traits of multiple species.


What the hell she killed for sport

3 Velociraptors - Jurassic Park
4 Darth Vader - Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.

Please put this higher I cried so hard on the scene - ZeathChUnGuS

What Luke does when he dies is so sad.-Ginger22

Anakin went from a sith lord. to a loving father. That scene was pretty damn sad.

"But you'll die."
"Nothing can stop that now, just for once, let me look on you with my own eyes."
Tearjerking stuff

5 Zilla - Godzilla (1998)

I almost cried when Zilla died.

That was a sad death the others below this are bs they deserved it

6 Lord Shen - Kung Fu Panda 2
7 Scar - The Lion King Scar is the main antagonist of Disney's 1994 animated feature film, The Lion King. He was the second son of Ahadi and Uru — who were, at one time, King and Queen of the Pride Lands — the younger brother of Mufasa, and the uncle of Simba.

My favorite is why there are so many recreations

8 Destroyah - Godzilla vs Destroyah

The principle characters of Godzilla

9 The Efrafan Rabbits - Watership Down

That dog scene...

10 Predalien - Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

The Contenders

11 Claudandus/Pascal - Felidae

Claudandus: You look at me now, and all you see Francis... is evil... yet once I was... good...
Me: :'(

12 Nuka - The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride

He was trying to prove himself worthy to Zira, but died in the process. So sad :(

13 Davy Jones - Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End Davy Jones is a fictional villain character in the Pirates of the Caribbean feature film series, who first appears in the second film, Dead Man's Chest and returns in the series' third installment, At World's End.

Davy Jones' fear of the heart getting stabbed seems genuine. I feel so sorry for this guy.

I think no. 1 should be reverse flash - the flash season 1 episode 23

When you think of it, davy was once a normal man, like you and I. he loved calypso, his heart hurt so badly after their relationship ended, that he cut it out and put it in the chest. he was cursed to step on land only once every 10 years, and he became a powerful fool. he got blinded with power, and everything he used to be hit him as he saw the sword hit his heart.

14 Vastatosaurus - King Kong (2005)
15 Bill Sykes - Oliver and Company
16 Boss Wolf - Kung Fu Panda 2
17 The Joker - Batman: Arkham City The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics. Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, more.

So far, this is the only villain death that is actually sad on this list, and considering how much of a horrible person the Joker really is, it's amazing how Rocksteady pulled this scene off

18 SpaceGodzilla - Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla
19 Queen Chrysalis - My Little Pony (2012) Queen Chrysalis is a female changeling who serves as the main antagonist for the season 2 finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

I don't Queen Chrysalis died. Maybe King Sombra did.

King Sombra exploded

20 Battra - Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth (Godzilla vs Mothra 1992)

For how AWFUL this movie, Battra's death is pretty sad.

21 The Monster - Cloverfield


22 Syndrome - The Incredibles Syndrome (born as Buddy Pine) is the primary antagonist in The Incredibles. He wanted to be super like the others, even though he had no powers. He was Mr. Incredible's #1 fan, and dubbed himself "Incrediboy," but he was rejected by Mr. Incredible. Angered after being refused, he developed an evil plan more.
23 Claude Frollo - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
24 Lyle Tiberius Rourke - Atlantis: The Lost Empire

All he wanted was to be rich and in the end, he died.

This poor excuse of a villain has one of the saddest deaths? Even though he is stupidly evil, obnoxious, and forgettable? There is so much wrong with him even appearing on this list. He more than deserved his death, or rather, be taken out of the film as quickly as possible. There are deaths in Atlantis that are so much sadder and tragic than this "only for the money" villain. - SinisterHoodedFigure

25 M.U.T.O. - Godzilla (2014)

They're awesome monsters, shame they had to die. You know what's even sadder? Those idiots destroying their nest. The female MUTO tries to kill the men who destroyed her nest, but Godzilla kills her before she can do that.

26 Slattern - Pacific Rim

Slattern is the best Kaiju in the movie, I didn't want him to die, but villains have to die, so guess I can't do anything about it. :(

27 MechaGodzilla - Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla

This doesn't count as a death it was a machine never alive

MechaGodzilla is A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Shame he had to die/be destroyed.

28 Hedorah - Godzilla vs Hedorah

Despite my negative reception for this movie, Hedorah is cool. I felt sorry for him when he died. But another Hedorah is seen at the end, so I guess, technically, he didn't die. But watching Godzilla defeat makes me feel sorry for this guy.

29 Cyber Zilla - Godzilla: The Series

Although it's my favorite episode, watching Zilla Junior destroy Cyber Zilla made me a bit sad. I actually believe Zilla could beat Zilla Junior. So if Cyber Zilla is a cyborg Zilla, then he should beat him. That's my only problem with the episode. But still a great episode of a great series.

30 Sharptooth - The Land Before Time
31 Ursula - The Little Mermaid Ursula is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated feature film The Little Mermaid.

38 Gigan - Godzilla Final Wars
39 R.O.B the Robot - Angry Video Game Nerd
40 Tai Lung - Kung Fu Panda
41 Purple Guy - Five Nights at Freddy's 3

This doesn't even make sense. Why is this here.

43 Cronos - God of War 3
44 Zeus - God of War 3
