* Meruem of ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' is a genocidal monster. He killed his own mother right out of the womb, by ''tearing'' his way out and from then on made plans and took actions that caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands, all while taking a sadistic pleasure from it in his drive to absolute power. But his death, going off to find Komugi as he slowly dies from a deadly toxin, all to play a few last games of Gungi with her and eventually dying in her arms, is one of the series biggest {{Tear Jerker}}s

** Subverted with Frieza's death. A few minutes before his death, he is split in two parts by a reverse attack. He is dying and asks Goku for mercy. Although Goku was aware of all of the horrible things Frieza did, he still manages to show some sympathy and gives Frieza some of his energy. However, Frieza immediately used it to try to kill Goku (again), which fails. Even ''then'' Goku is visibly shaken and reeling after having to kill Frieza, although more out of pitying Frieza's self-destructive foolishness than any sympathy for the bastard.

Even before that, though, he seems to feel some pity for him, if only because of how pitiful his fate was.
->'''Goku''':Although you brought this all on yourself, it;s a shame that your life has to end in such a miserable way. I wanted to save you, Frieza, but you wouldn't let me. Now share the fate of the Planet Namek, which you yourself destroyed.

** Kishou Arima spends much of the series an ImplacableMan that is impossible to figure out, alternately a merciless killing machine and a distant, harsh mentor. In the rematch with Kaneki in '':Re'', he repeatedly threatens to kill the hero's friends while maiming him. But once he is defeated, he takes his own life and dies in Kaneki's arms while confessing the truth. [[spoiler: A purpose-bred HalfHumanHybrid with a significantly shortened lifespan]], he'd been forced to serve the CCG since childhood....in spite of the constant guilt he felt over his duties. He goes out with a TearfulSmile, praising his [[LikeASonToMe surrogate son]] with his final breaths.
-->''"I... I've... always... hated it. I hated myself, who only ever stole from others... I feel like I was finally... able to leave something behind..."''

** Vegeta's death after Frieza gives him a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. Vegeta has been despicable for sixty-something episodes, and has just killed a village full of cute alien children and their big brothers. You'd expect a character of this type to die in a spectacular explosion, then never be seen again. But instead, after Frieza shoots him for describing Goku as a Super-Saiyan, we get Vegeta's lengthy final speech about his genuinely horrendous childhood, and see Vegeta crying as he begs Goku to kill Frieza and avenge their people, before breathing his last in a BigSleep from his terrible injuries.
*** Although [[DeathIsCheap he eventually gets better like nigh everybody else in the series]], he does get a burial from Goku.

** The Egg of the Perfect World is one of the few villains in ''Berserk'' that is actually LIKABLE. His death scene scene, where he selflessly sacrifices himself for Griffith, is very heart shattering.

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', Prince Emilio may have spent much of his life wanting nothing more than [[RevengeBeforeReason revenge]] on his ParentalSubstitute King Delzaine (who reportedly killed his father and is shown to be an unsympathetic ruler), but when Delzaine dies [[PapaWolf protecting him]] from [[AxeCrazy Ibelda]], Emilio regrets it heavily and it's not hard to feel sympathetic. There's also an element of this when Ibelda needlessly slaughters his fellow [[LesCollaborateurs Truculent]] without warning.

* Caster and Souichirou's deaths in the Unlimited Blade Works route ''Anime/FateStayNight'' were definitely this. Caster is killed by Archer (an entity who is much stronger than her) while trying to protect Souichirou, her lover. When Caster is killed, Archer gives Souichirou the opportunity to flee for his life but Souichirou is so upset at her sacrifice he tries to avenge her death, [[CurbStompBattle and is effortlessly killed by Archer.]] Even our protagonists are upset at their deaths.
** Illya's death in UBW (killed by Gilgamesh) is also very sad. Illya might be a homicidal woman-child but the brutality at which Gilgamesh kills her is unnecessarily harsh, especially considering Gil didn't even need to kill her.

* ''Anime/{{K}}: Return of Kings'' has the Green and Grey Kings. As Shiro enacts his plan to [[spoiler: destroy the Slates]], Nagare, the Green King, asks why Shiro rejects his WellIntentionedExtremist plan to give the whole world superpowers. Shiro and Neko tell him that they don't need any of that - just warm food and friends to share it with around a small table. Nagare thinks back to his Clan's secret base, which was a lot like that, and remembers their warm life together as he dies. Then, the Grey King, who was like a father to Nagare, comes and holds Nagare as they die together. Afterwards, their remaining Clansmen toss flowers into the spot where they died and remember them.

Even Natsu was shocked and disgusted by his blatant act of betrayal, [[spoiler:but no worries. Cobra survives and [[TheDogBitesBack gets back at Brain seven years later]], and no one else in their guild gave a rat's ass when he did, [[TrueCompanions even being happy for him]]]].

* In ''Manga/MiraiNikki'', virtually of the Future Diary owners receive this trope although Yukiteru Amano and Kamado Ueshita may be excused and others have taken their own HeelFaceTurn. Most notably are [[{{Yandere}} Yuno Gasai]] who suffered a terrible childhood, went insane and became a god in order to repeat time to respend her days with her loved one Yuki, until she eventually is DrivenToSuicide to ensure he becomes a god. She gets better though.
