Top 5 saddest deaths of all time

Updated on February 29, 2016


This death was more satisfying then sad, but when you see his hopeless body standing there you might start to shed a tear. I mean first his wife and son died, so he tried to get revenge and does it well by killing the king, but then just stands there hopelessly. It wasn't the saddest but hey, it was a pretty tearjerking death. Just so you know, I really think you could switch this with Pay it Foward, but hey it's a free country.

4. Terminator 2

This killer from the original film killed her husband, she had her son but lost her son so then another terminator comes to kill THE terminator who is about to save the kid from dying. He just seems like an iron giant kind of guy. He was supportive, funny, friendly and deadly. But when he's the last terminator he sacrifices himself to "save' the world by going into lava with a little thumbs up, it just makes you cry.

Also first terminator was sad too.

And just in case you cant tell, the origanal had its sad moments also, so this is just a quick shoutout

Look up the dentist song.

3.alternitive Little shop of horrors

Well, after seeing this you know I love musicals, but in the original little shop of horrors Audrey gets killed, feed to the plant by Seymour, Seymour then fights the evil plant but fails and is eaten. So then the plant takes over the world, killing all humans as bender would say. I mean I like this better than the original better because the 1990s version sucked but still, these deaths were so sad. At least the finale was good, also DENTIST!!! Also its about a evil man eating plant, a cowardly teenage boy and girl, and a cycopathic dentist, whats not to like?



William Wallace you will be missed, you lived to make a brave rebellion but then you died like a man. It was so sad how his wife died but himself, but William Wallace was just so sad. He was a brave and confeident man who never betrayed anyone. It's just he is so nice and was the main character, just fighting for liberty. But we can count on his last words...FREEDOM. But while this was sad, number 1 is even more depressing.

This is pay it Foward mind you.

1. John Coffey, The Green Mile.

Now, all the character deaths were sad, but you can never forget the death of a kind angel with healing powers, that's right John Coffey. This film is about a healing angel who goes to jail, meets and talks to some other very interesting characters, and then tries not to get electrocuted. Personally, I can't express how sad the final moments of this film are. Even the part where he reveals Mr Jingles I still have a tissue because of the death of this perfect angel. Disagree, well tell your thoughts in the comments and have a sad day):

      Yes, these were sad deaths. I believe in the original (1960) Little Shop of Horrors it was not Audrey but a flirt who got killed. In the movies acting trashy is dangerous behavior.
