The opening scene from Finding Nemo is sheer brutality as a parent. Holy shiat, my eyes are watering just thinking about it.

will look later, but I imagine Clayton from Tarzan is top 3.

Emotionally painful? Yes.

"Heavy Metal" is full of physically painful animated deaths.

The opening sequence of "Up" made me cry like a little baby the first time I saw it.

You do realize that every person on the list is a good guy right? This is about the most powerful deaths, the ones that affected you and elicited an emotional response.

Clayton's death was brutal, especially for an animated film (seeing the shadow hanging there), but it was not powerful or moving like Mufasa's death or the death of the Iron Giant.

Scar from Lion King would be another brutal death, but that caused cheers, not tears. Same with Judge Frollo in "Hunchback of Notre Dame"
 
2012-11-01 06:32:49 PM  
No "Rats of NIMH"?

Because I could swear there were a couple of really effective deaths in there.

Oh, and the animated Transformers movie was farking horseshiat. On top of Prime, you have Ironhide, Prowl, Ratchet and Wheeljack all dying in the first 5 minutes so that you can introduce Rodimus Prime, Ultra Magnus and Kup? Fark you.

And yes, that was my attitude in 1986 as well.

Oh lord, Ray in Princess and the Frog. I thought I was the only one. I sobbed. And then for the next day or so I couldn't even talk about it without falling apart. I was trying to tell my husband about it (he's used to me) and I could only get out the word "Evangeline" and then burst into tears again. I didn't even like Ray all that much and what happened after he died was predictable, but it still messed me up.

The headline is kind of misleading. The actual article is "10 Most Powerful Animated Deaths" not "10 harshest and most painful animated deaths."

And the list actually wasn't that bad. I'd throw Up and Iron Giant a little higher in the list, but for once the list wasn't horrible.

No Littlefoot's mother? Lousy list. Optimus Prime's death being on there surprised me, but for many it was a soul-crushing experience (me included). I'd add Ironhide to the list.

"Such heroic nonsense."

Coco LaFemme: Where's when Littlefoot's mom died in The Land Before Time? That one had me crying so hard, my dad had to carry me from the theater.


I think that series was exploited on video so much (there were what, 12 sequels?) that people forget the original was a theatrical release and was actually pretty damn good. It just gets forgotten a lot... and yeah, that was a rather well done death.

mitchcumstein1: Oh, and the animated Transformers movie was farking horseshiat. On top of Prime, you have Ironhide, Prowl, Ratchet and Wheeljack all dying in the first 5 minutes so that you can introduce Rodimus Prime, Ultra Magnus and Kup? Fark you.

Aw, fark the other Autobots. They killed StarScream! After like 8 years of Megatron putting up with his shiat, it took him being reborn and getting Leonard Nemoy's voice that he finally shot the conniving bastard.

While I appreciate that episode (and it's a great farking episode), Luck of the Fryrish (where Fry finds out about his brother "stealing" his name) hits me a lot harder than it.

Now the one that will almost make me tear up with happiness is Leela finding out about her parents. The whole montage at the end just gets me.

2012-11-01 07:05:52 PM  
I agree with Ray's death being higher than the Up opening...if only because the Up opening (while very powerful) involved human's who understood what was going on.

Ray was a) a helpless character and b) mentally unstable to some extent. He was an innocent that didn't see it coming...and I'm not quite even sure he fully understood what was going on until the very very end.

And, well, of course his death led to the second star above the castle, predicting the merging of Disney with Lucasfilm five years or so in the future.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ that movie was an epic, brutal 'teaching moment' about mortality and how death has no prejudice. that movie is deserving of its number three, and probably deserves an asterisk number 1 for the sheer number of jaw dropping 'did they just kill...??!' moments in that movie.

Damn right. Especially Prowl. Even as a kid my attitude was "Hell no." That scene took the steam right out of the franchise for me. Wasn't bothered by Optimus dying after that.

Most of Kenny's deaths were just random or even funny, but the "Kenny Dies" episode where he actually died instead of being killed and didn't come back for a season (it was originally intended to be permanent) was truly sad and powerful.

Charlotte's Web messed me up when I was little, 99% of it is because that's my mother's name.

To those who mentioned Little Foot's mom, sweet Jeebus I tear up just thinking about it. Especially when she says, "even though you can't see me, I'll always be with you."

Damn. I'm 28 years old and consider myself a non-crier as far as movie films go, but that makes me well up instantly.

Ohhh my god, yea that list wasn't bad but if your willing to go foreign then its going to get real dark real fast. Grave of the Fireflies should only be viewed with handfulls of prozac on hand.

Watership Down is a kids movie, I watched when it came out. I had my kids watch it when they were quite young. Just because its not blowing happy sunshine up your butt doesnt mean its not a kids movie.

Asuka.

End of Evangelion.

Plague Dogs - Snitter *literally* kills the last chance he has for a happy home life

that's the movie where they ask children to decide whether the island is a mirage or reality, right? jesus christ, what a depressing movie.

You do realize that it's not a children's film, right? Animation was simply the most cost effective way of realistically portraying anthropomorphic talking animals.

/Not a parent but if I were I'd probably forbid my kids from watching any movie with the word "plague" in the title
//"grave" as well.


It's a film that doesn't talk down to children. That book and that movie are needed, to tell kids some unpleasant truths (kind of like NIMH, but much more brutal). That book and movie opened a lot of eyes about cruelties to animals in the name of science. It's just that to know that the 'happy ending' was probably not going to happen, that was the worst. After all they'd been through, it just wasn't fair -- yet their story was typical, not exceptional.

Humans suck.

I'm sorry. I need a moment.

sovietski: Charlotte's Web messed me up when I was little, 99% of it is because that's my mother's name.

To those who mentioned Little Foot's mom, sweet Jeebus I tear up just thinking about it. Especially when she says, "even though you can't see me, I'll always be with you."

Damn. I'm 28 years old and consider myself a non-crier as far as movie films go, but that makes me well up instantly.


God damn it.....who's chopping onions out here? I don't cry during movies either, and even as a kid I normally didn't, but I was sobbing for the rest of the film, and then as I said, my dad had to carry me out to the car because I was crying so hard I couldn't walk. I still can't watch that movie to this day. Because at the age of 30 I know, if I see that again, I'll start bawling like an infant with a loaded diaper.

Thats kind of how I feel about GotFF, but I wouldnt try to get my kids to watch it till they are almost teenagers, well the older one probably never. If you want to show someone about how bad a nuclear bomb's after affects can really be, baby thats it. Just make sure you hide all the sleeping pills before you show it.

I wonder if they will ever make a anime of We3, that would make the list. Or at least it should.

Oh man, that was my first exposure to a main character dying in anything I can remember. Robotech was full of death. Roy, Ben, and Gloval, Claudia, and the cockpit crew in the big battle were just brutal. I do have to say because of that, it was much easier to deal with the death of Optimus Prime a few years later.

While I appreciate that episode (and it's a great farking episode), Luck of the Fryrish (where Fry finds out about his brother "stealing" his name) hits me a lot harder than it.

Now the one that will almost make me tear up with happiness is Leela finding out about her parents. The whole montage at the end just gets me.


I absolutely agree with you and was about to say the same thing. I know people are attached to their the dogs, but the reveal in Luck kills me. You think Fry is up to his usual crazy nonsense, then, bam. The truth comes out.

Then it got to the scene where he was sitting alone after the funeral. With a balloon.

I bawled like baby.

I was emotionally depressed after watching this movie for the rest of that day.

Tom_Slick: UberDave: Nabb1: The opening sequence of "Up" made me cry like a little baby the first time I saw it.

The first time I saw it was on DVD. After that scene, I paused the damn thing and looked at my wife, who was in tears, and said, "What the &#@% are we watching?!"


I can't watch that movie because of that scene, it hits really really close to home.

/No sweet daughter we can't ever watch Up daddy will turn catatonic for too long thinking about mommy.


My husband couldn't make it through Click, cause it made him think of his dad too much (his dad died 11 years ago). =(

Dimensio: rickycal78: ManateeGag: will look later, but I imagine Clayton from Tarzan is top 3.

The headline is kind of misleading. The actual article is "10 Most Powerful Animated Deaths" not "10 harshest and most painful animated deaths."

And the list actually wasn't that bad. I'd throw Up and Iron Giant a little higher in the list, but for once the list wasn't horrible.

"Superman".

My grandmother has dementia, has no idea who anyone is (she's just happy people visit; she has no idea who they are, but she's happy to see them), and that episode kinda makes me wish that existed, as wrong as it would be, cause she'd not be living in a confused mess like she is now, but able to be anywhere and any time. =(

I think it hit me cause it was kinda personal. I was just thinking of how it'd be nice to put my grandmother and grandfather back in time, to where they were building this house 30 years ago to retire in. Both mobile, cognizant, and in his case, alive. =(

The only animated movie I remember bawling over was an anime about a boy whose mother was turned into a dragon for drinking from a sacred lake/river without permission. Towards the end the mother sacrifices herself to break a boulder that's blocking a river that's preventing crops from being planted and is therefore starving a village.

Fortunately, the mother is revived and turned back due to her selflessness.

So even though there's a happy ending, it's an unexpected happy ending.

Anybody know the name of that movie?

Hey guys, was someone talking about sad animated movies?

Hey that's the one. Her brother was an asshole, fed her marbles and let her eat mud cakes.


The boy was a 6th or 7th grader. Those were hard candies from that little tin box. Mud cakes are not an unusual diet item among the starving in wartime conditions, they fill your stomach and keep away the hunger pangs.

//A grandfather took a hike on Bataan in '42. He knows about the mud cakes.

That's not really a movie death. More of a movie life. It's its own category.
 
2012-11-01 11:59:09 PM  
The worst part about that opening sequence from Up is that it hits in waves. There is the young love turns into marriage hit, then the inability to have children hit, then the melancholy of thinking that you have let down your love by not realizing her dreams hit, then the sickness and dying hit, then the final tear jerking part, which is more uplifting yet still sob-inducing, where he looks through the book and comes to the "Stuff I Want To Do" section and expects it to be a blank unfulfilled canvas, then he sees that it is full of snapshots of everyday moments of their life together, and that they lived the greatest adventure of all together

I had put off watching it because my wife's mother died a few years ago and her father now lives with us. I knew what was coming in the movie and I expected the waterworks from her, but she seemed oddly unmoved by it. Probably not really a good thing; it suggests to me there are some unprocessed issues still going on there.

I just want to add my 2 cents for Grave of the Fireflies.

It's a devastating movie which I've found unparalleled - maybe Schindler's List - but there's something else that brings it another layer of sadness .. maybe because it's animated and you don't expect such sorrow in what is traditionally a "light" format.

Anyway, it's linked above. I urge everyone to see it, but be warned the subject matter is very serious and it's a very sad film.
 
2012-11-02 12:26:32 AM  
While I see a Farker here named Dinobot, I'm shocked nobody's mentioned Dinobot's death in Transformers: Beast Wars, I think the episode is named "Code of Hero" or something like that. I was shocked to see such a deep, symbolic storyline in a cartoon.

Grave of the Fireflies is powerful stuff. Beyond Saving Private Ryan, beyond a lot of things.

If you haven't seen it, know that you're not going to have a good time. That movie will emotionally core you out with a melon-baller. This doesn't mean it shouldn't be seen; it's a seriously impressive work.

But it's nothing you'll keep on your bookshelf or DVD collection. Even just running across the title later in life makes you feel ruined.

Aye, that one really killed me watching it in the theater as a kid, the fact that Megatron blasts him in the face didn't help either. But the one death from that movie that really sticks with me after all these years: Prowl with smoke coming from his mouth. For some reason I've always found that one a little too REAL.

My mother died when I was very young. I refuse to ever watch that movie again because I know that scene will just destroy me heart and soul. It was bad enough watching it with her as a child and her reassuring me that she wasn't going anywhere, but now? Fark that.


Sorry for your loss, my dad died when i was 15, "dad" based commercials do me in still, 17 yrs later

Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: The worst part about that opening sequence from Up is that it hits in waves. There is the young love turns into marriage hit, then the inability to have children hit, then the melancholy of thinking that you have let down your love by not realizing her dreams hit, then the sickness and dying hit, then the final tear jerking part, which is more uplifting yet still sob-inducing, where he looks through the book and comes to the "Stuff I Want To Do" section and expects it to be a blank unfulfilled canvas, then he sees that it is full of snapshots of everyday moments of their life together, and that they lived the greatest adventure of all together

7th Son of a 7th Son: It's not aniimated, but the last time I teared up at the cinema was during I am Legend, ***SPOILER ALERT*** (as if anyone hasn't seen it...just being safe)


The part where he realizes his dog is infected....jesus christ I can't even type this without sobbing like a baby, and I don't even like dogs. Gah.


I've always wondered why animal deaths seem to hit me and many others harder than human deaths in movies. I think it's because you KNOW the humans are actors, but the dogs are just doing what they were trained to do. Yu know they weren't actually hurt, but  it is still different somehow.

As long as we are talking non-animated deaths that got me, though, I just have to say one phrase:

"There was a whole lot of bloody death on The Wire, but what makes this one so particularly shocking is its frightening randomness. For five seasons, Omar was the god of war on the mean streets of Baltimore, practically invincible (he jumped out of a building!). Given his career choice, Omar's demise was just a matter of time, but it was still surprising, and heartbreaking, when he got shot in the back of the head not by a gangbanger or a policeman, but by the adolescent Kenard."

I know there's a lot of hate/love for Transformers: the Movie here, but I do remember going to see it and half of the kids crying their eyes out. I was a kid, too, but the only character I cared about was Ratchet, and that was because of the kick-ass Marvel comic where he and Megatron squared off for an entire issue. By the end, Ratchet had gotten the complete shiat kicked out of him. Seeing him get destroyed in the movie was more of the same.

Damn you. The scene when Grandma has to set Todd free? It didn't make me sad when I was little, but I watched it again on YouTube and I barely made it 3 seconds in to the video.

I still have all of my Disney books from when I was a wee Sovietski, and I read one a night to my (now) 5 month old son. We read Todd And Copper a few weeks ago and I remembered that scene (and song). Oh how I cried.

It's strange how watching movies when I was little that dealt with loss never really bothered me until I got older and experienced loss for myself. And when I became a parent.

I'll admit it right here on the Internets for everyone to read: I watched White Fang a few months ago and there must've been some ninja onions in my apartment because that movie was a lot sadder than I remember it. Cried three times: 1) When White Fang's mom is hobbling back to their den and dies, and it shows him howling. 2) When Jack sets White Fang free. 3) After x-amount of time, when he's fixing the roof of his cabin and White Fang pops up on that hill (the musical score does NOT help) and runs to him?

I still hate Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime. HATE HIM. Like more than Paul Reiser (Burke in Aliens).

I have passed on my hatred of Hot Rod to my 7 year old son. My boy loves transformers and loves the old transformers cartoons, but I won't let him watch the movie yet because Optimus dying is the worst scene ever.

The scene where Optimus transforms and rolls into battle crushing everyone in front of him makes my eyes water, and then when he dies I get really angry again.

I was PO'ed about Wheeljack and Ironhide too, but I think that for kids of my generation, who had the toys and were into them, Optimus dying was inconceivable.

You really should watch Up. The beginning is heart rending, but it really does make the rest of the movie that much better and more uplifting. Grave of the Fireflies though? Fark that. There is nothing hopeful, happy, or uplifting at any point in that film. The most uplifting part of the film is when it's over, much like the best part of being set on fire is when they put the flames out.

I was a little young to see it in the theaters and I already had the Powermaster Optimus with the little engine guy that popped in and out by the time I saw it (1989 probably)
I distinctly remember seeing the movie and I had my powermaster Optimus with me. After he died I coped and said "That's why you got this little guy on your chest, to keep you alive. Just like daddy" (My dad had a valve in his heart replaced before I was born)
Boy did I ever smash the everloving SHIAT out of that toy when my dad died 3 years later. Little bits of plastic all over the muther-effing place.
Still get a little misty over Optimus going.

Oh, I'm not saying it's a bad story, not at all. It's just that Up has happy and uplifting after giving you a dose of the sad. Grave of the Fireflies gives you a dose of the sad, then takes happy and uplifting and makes you watch as they die of hunger in squalid poverty. It's one of those films, like Unthinkable, that was excellent, but I will only ever watch once because they were so emotionally draining.

I thought I was the only one that felt Luck of the Fryrish had more emotional impact than the dog episode.

THIS - Jurassic Bark does not make me cry. Luck of the Fryish does. As does The Late Phillip J Fry from the newer batch.

The recent one with Farnsworth's parents in the old folks home suspended reality thing kicked my ASS hardcore. I seriously sat there losing it, especially at the end. My grandmother has dementia, has no idea who anyone is (she's just happy people visit; she has no idea who they are, but she's happy to see them), and that episode kinda makes me wish that existed, as wrong as it would be, cause she'd not be living in a confused mess like she is now, but able to be anywhere and any time. =(


I'm going to skip the rest of the comments just to say I feel your pain. My grandmother also had dementia/Alzheimer's and she died shortly after my birthday two years ago. I was surprised it hit me as hard as it did, because my mother and I had talked about how we knew she wasn't really there anymore, it would be easier for her if she didn't have to live in that fog of dementia alone, she'd be better off if she could just go peacefully. I guess in the end she did, but knowing that mentally they aren't there doesn't really take the sting out of them going. No matter how many times I had told myself that she had basically died years before she passed, it was still heart wrenching, because I loved her.

Thanks. It's rough to visit, since she has no idea who we are, and we can't even really bring her around for the holidays. She has panic attacks, thinking she's in a room full of strangers. She only really knows my mom, and barely knows her at that. Definitely a horrible thing. She had a crazy interesting life, lots of travel, lots of stories, and I'm sure has trouble remembering much of it.

I am a warrior at heart.

The stress of a life lived has granted me extensive armor and defenses to protect me from those things that can harm me, from attaching to those who will later betray me. Life can be cruel so in defense one is to become cruel back and callous to the rest of the world.

That being said....... I decided to watch that opening sequence of Up since it was so talked about in this thread. It is probably the only Pixar movie I haven't watched.


Now I am weak with sorrow, utterly defenseless, emotionally naked. The intense duality of Life's agony and ecstasy is almost more than I can bear and that video, that story, just................................ There are glass shards in my eyes and I do not know how they got there. What is this I don't even..


I was angry at my wife the other day for something trivial now that I look back on it. It is always something trivial, isn't it? I am a total asshole. I don't deserve anything.

It just takes a little over 4 minutes to watch that and I now I look forward to getting home to my wife, hold her hand and just be with someone who chose me above all others.

Man, I forgot that existed, and have no name to go with it, but I remember it!

Lets throw in Blassreiter.

Each story arc is pretty much worse than the one before it.

That's my single favorite scene from that movie. That may have been my first experience with Schadenfreude. I guess because I found that squirrel so annoying.

Or maybe I'm just a psychopath. Who knows?

Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: Here's the entire shuttle attack scene


And here it is recreated in stop-motion with actual Transformers toys: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfS7fIBBoDM

He's done like nine or ten scenes from the movie, but he hasn't done any for a couple years. We need someone to pick up the slack!

/don't be an asshole

Sorry, but crying over the farking Transformers commercial cartoon is like crying when Shia "died" in Revenge of the Fallen.

/at least the movie series had the balls to actually kill people

1986. Generation One. No main character had ever died in the show. The movie comes out, we see most of the Season One and Two characters, all well-known and beloved to the kids of the time (especially Optimus Prime), brutally slaughtered before our eyes. Maybe now you'll understand why it was a sad moment.


Megatron must be stopped. No matter the cost.

I was seven. Saw it happen in theaters. Watched a vhs copy every day for I have no idea how many years. Kup was awesome. Rodimus I could relate too.... then the new episodes came out. Not sure what happened because the movie was awesome. Still watched them of course.

Also, watch GIJoe the Movie sometime. They were going to kill off the joes the same way they killed off the Autobots, but then the animators were shifted to Transformers to finish it first because it was the hotter property - and killing Prime destroyed the whole thing. Duke was supposed to die when Serpentor stabbed him in the heart, but because Hasbro was afraid of another shiatstorm they made them change the dialog. Then Hasbro fired the animation company and got a new one to turn the joes into a 90's PC crapfest.
