Movies have given us some real sad moments. While deaths in movies are not that uncommon, these supporting characters’ deaths stand out for being too close to the heart.
Agent Phil Coulson – The Avengers
His death was the driving force behind the Avengers. Agent Phil Coulson‘s fanboy moments with Captain America made him so relatable that his death hit everyone way too hard.
Eduard Delacroix – The Green Mile
Clearly, Delacroix was a bad person. But in the utterly painful fashion he was killed, it made the entire theater shudder and shiver.
Wilson – Cast Away
Granted Wilson was not an actual character. It was a made up imaginary friend Tom Hanks’ character had conjured up tp keep him company in his years of solitude on the island. So why were we crying when Tom Hanks was shouting “Wilson, I am sorry!!”
Professor X – Logan
Not many characters have impacted Hollywood like Patrick Stewart’s professor x. When he died, it was like the entire X-Men movie universe we grew up watching, died along with him.
Littlefoot’s Mother – The Land Before Time
Her last words to her child were: “I’ll be with you, even if you can’t see me.” We are not crying. You are crying.

His words of wisdom and his majestic presence made us feel safe and protected. When he fell into the cliff, the entire world mourned his loss.

A figment of a person’s imagination, Bing Bong was an imaginary creature living in a forgotten corner of the human mind. He died trying to save the person who had already forgotten about him. Bing Bong is the real G.O.A.T.

Kyojuro Rengoku was one of the strongest swordsmen in the Demon Slayer universe. As the Flame Hashira, a rank only reserved for the strongest demon slayers. When he died, his entire life and reasons for becoming a Hashira flashed before his eyes. And boy did we cry like a little baby.
Dobby – Harry Potter

Merlin – Kingsman
That moment when Mark Strong’s Merlin sings Country Road as he takes on Poppy Adams’ men is something we can never forget.
