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.
Would've been nice if he had reunited with Luke, but, guess not. His death was more predictable than sad however.
And he just turned good! But the worst part about this is how Luke tried to save him but Vader wanted to die. And when Vader died Luke didn't party with everyone else but instead watched Vaders helment and look at Yoda, Obi-Wans, and Anakins force ghoast.
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.
Dude, 2 people, him and Darth Maul were unfortunate to only be featured in the phantom menace. Tragic
He was only in one movie
He got sliced in half
One of the best Jedi
She was a slave her whole life and had a child who was a slave for most of his childhood and he got sent away to become a jedi. When he came back she was tourted alive.
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!
Shmi's death was sad
This is one of the saddest deaths in the franchise, in my opinion. She mostly spends the rest of the third film worrying and crying in her apartment about Anakin, and her breaking point came after Anakin, as Vader, Force-choked her on Mustafar, almost killing her and her babies. When Obi-Wan and the rest arrived on Polis Massa, her time was up. After she gave birth to Luke and Leia, her last words were "Obi-Wan... there's good in him... I know... I know there's... I know there's... still...", as she genuinely believes there's still good in Anakin, but it's too late, as Palpatine siphoned her life force into Vader, as well as dying of a broken heart. And it made me cry when I found out that at her funeral, she is holding the japor snippet that Anakin gave her in the first film.
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.
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
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.
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, since 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.
Savage was a bad guy. But what made this death sad was because Darth Maul lost his brother
His death was mainly sad because Maul seen it happen.
Palpatine why did you have to kill him?
Exactly his was so sad!
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.
Behind SATINE and for what? SATINE didn't have a heroic death and she didn't do anything besides make Obi-Wan act like a servant!
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.
The nightmares. They're, finally, over...
Good clone your pain is gone now...
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
His death shocked me
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."
In the end he deserves the death he got. Fading and becoming a force ghost like that.
All of the main original and characters besides Chewy, Boba, and the droids die.
Luke shouldn't have died
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.
But also the longest death.
Saddest death ever
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.
I mean, seriously. I cried. And I very rarely cry.
Guys, please. I actually cried
Visually breathtaking and Heartbreaking end to a character. In a very Jedi-like manner. Selfless and dutiful
His sacrifice wasn't in vain. And the score really brought a few tear from me.
He died seeing his friends for the last time. As he died his eyes turned aqua again
It is very sad for Hera
He is a cool guy
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?
At least he had become one with the force and he get's to go with his parents again.
I personally think his loss was the saddest.
Never should have died
She was a cool character in 4-6. But then 7,8 and 9 happened and she's flying in space. Weird.
I swear Star Wars, Transformers, and Marvel and Dc and Harry Potter kill off to many characters.
Jango Fett was an awesome bounty hunter and he is cool with the best ship
Jango Fett is the goat!
His death shocked me
Funny, sarcastic, and particularly sadistic. He didn't go down without a fight.
I love him and Boil
Echo is one of my favorite clones!
Echo is funny, smart, and a good guy.
Echo gets all my love
May he rest in peace
She was happy that she and Cassian were able to transfer the Deathstar plans to the Rebels.
The boy you trained, gone he is. Consumed by Darth Vader.
Anakin died because Vader consumed(ate) him.
He was happy that he and Jyn were able to transfer the Deathstar plans to the Rebels.
