* Nearly ''any'' major death in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. Kishimoto loves emotional death scenes with flashbacks, thus villains and good guys get equal treatment, even when they don't have a case of RedemptionEqualsDeath. Examples include: Zabuza and Haku, Kimimaro, Sasori, Danzo, Kisame, Nagato, Kabuto (though he is not died) and Tobi.

* Annie Leonhart, from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. As the Female Titan, she spends an entire story arc terrorizing and slaughtering the members of the Survey Corps while on the hunt for LivingMacGuffin Eren. She kills many of her victims in brutal and unnecessarily cruel ways, including ''spinning'' one poor soul by his grappling hook wires until his body folds in half backwards. Once she's finished making a fine paste of {{Red Shirt}}s, she systematically kills each and every one of Eren's new comrades from the Special Operations Squad right in front of him before beating him soundly and kidnapping him. Though she fails to escape with Eren, her attack leaves many dead, [[TheAce Levi]] badly wounded, and the mission failed so miserably that the future of the Survey Corps and Eren looks doubtful. But when she's finally exposed and defeated, we're treated to multiple flashbacks to her beloved father training her to fight. In desperation, she tries to WallCrawl up Wall Sina to escape and is knocked from the Wall by Mikasa, quickly subdued by Eren and the military. She recalls her father on his knees before her, crying as he admits that he was wrong. He tells her to consider the entire world her enemy, telling her that he's the only one who is on her side, and makes her promise to come home to him someday -- weeping, she encases herself in a CrystalPrison to prevent her capture.

** Bertolt Hoover, the infamous Colossal Titan himself. Over the course of the series, he caused considerable death and destruction by attacking the Walls twice and acting as a spy within the military. In the final confrontation with his former comrades, he resolves to ShootTheDog and coldly goes about attempting to kill every single one of them. It's only through Armin nearly sacrificing his life that Eren is finally able to bring the Colossal Titan down, leaving Bertolt in a crippled state. The group eventually decides to use the serum to turn Armin into a Titan, and Bertolt wakes up just before he's devoured. He spends his final moments begging his former friends for help, before realizing help won't come and crying out for Annie and Reiner. His death itself is pathetic enough that it gives the heroes no satisfaction, and a short time later they learn the truth behind Bertolt's actions. Raised in a concentration camp, his family volunteered him for a military TykeBomb project at a very young age in hopes of earning a better life. His superiors indoctrinated him to believe the people he would be attacking were "children of the devil" plotting to destroy the world, and his actions would ''save'' humanity. Even after he realized the people inside the Walls weren't evil, he was TrappedInVillainy because his superiors would simply [[EatenAlive replace]] him with another Warrior, then punish his entire family by [[AFateWorseThanDeath turning them into mindless Titans]].

** Another example is the BigBad of Part 5, Diavolo. He spends a good deal of the arc trying to kill his daughter, but he meets his end at the hands of the [[StoryBreakerPower godlike]] Gold Experience Requiem, which forces him to live out an infinite cycle of deaths. The fact that he's running away from a girl not long after kind of drives this home.

** Played a bit more straight in ''Resurrection "F"''. [[spoiler: After Frieza is back in hell by the end of the movie and realizes his [[AndIMustScream fate]], observing viewers can actually hear him pathetically sobbing after his BigNo .]]



** You kind of fell sorry for Zarbon in the end, despite being an unrepentant [[TheDragon enforcer for Frieza]]. Unlike his comrades, [[PsychoForHire he's neither cruel]] [[SmugSnake nor egotistical]]-[[PunchClockVillain he's just trying to do his job for Frieza]], [[BadBoss who threatens to kill him if he fails.]] While Vegeta wasn't unjustified in killing him, Zarbon was just doing his job to save his life, and got blasted for it.

** Naoko Akagi also fits here as well. She [[WouldHurtAChild murders the first Rei]] in a moment of insanity because she called her a 'hag' and revealed that she's imitating what [[Jerkass Gendo]] calls her and that he was just using her, and then has a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment before [[DrivenToSuicide jumping off the platform she's standing on.]]

* [[ManipulativeBastard Gendo]] [[ParentalAbandonment Ikari]] from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. It's revealed in ''End of Evangelion'' that he's trying to trigger [TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third]] [[AssimilationPlot Impact]] to try [[LoveMakesYouEvil and bring his dead wife back]]. Rei, his surrogate daughter, [[AnArmAndALeg tears off his arm]] and enacts Third Impact on her own, choosing Shinji over him; he [[NotSoStoic shouts after her in a panic]], but is unable to do anything. He mournfully admits that he treated Shinji so badly because he was afraid of him and left because he was afraid of being a poor father (ironically making him an even worse father in the process), showing that he's essentially a [[ShadowArchetype twisted version of his own son]]. He is then [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bitten in half]] by Unit 01; as everyone else who died as part of Third Impact saw an apparition of the person they love most in the world embracing them, what he experiences - his wife, who he caused Third Impact to bring back, questioning his actions and then him being horribly killed by the mecha that is her and piloted by his son - suggests that he truly believed that's what he deserved. His remorse is shown even more by his last words, also an example of this trope: "Forgive me, Shinji."

For all his power and arrogance, he's ultimately the biggest loser of them all, as his plans end with his death while Hashirama's "Will of Fire" endured and will continue to endure long after he [Hashirama] passed on. The only comfort he has is that in spite of everything that transpired between them, Hashirama (briefly revived by the Edo Tensei), perhaps the only person to have ever truly empathize with him besides his brother Izuna, still considers them friends.]]
