*** [[spoiler:Major Zero]]. Sure, he was the (indirect) cause of all the events in the main series, but he [[WellIntentionedExtremist truly never meant]] for things to [[GoneHorriblyWrong as horribly wrong]] as they did. By the time the AI constructs turned out to be [[AIIsACrapshoot a crapshoot]], it was too late for him to fix his mistakes. When we see him at the end of the game, he's a pitiful old man - a catatonic wheelchair-bound vegetable kept alive only through life support, who can't even take responsibility for the things he didn't know he caused. And when [[spoiler:Big Boss]] pulls the plug on him, the way he fidgets and spasms as his oxygen supply is cut off is downright unsettling.

And if their respective [[BreakTheCutie backstories]] didn't solidify their position as the biggest [[TheWoobie Woobies]] of the game, their death scenes, where their humanity finally shows through, are a pretty good litmus test for deciding if there is an ounce of humanity in you.

** The End similarly gets a touching send off, dying doing what made him happy.
** The Boss. Until a minute later, you really feel this. After that, whatever humanity there was just gets strained as you learn the truth. Considering how well it was done, it may still be a "poor villain" because of how well she played her part.

** Solidus's defeat was also somewhat pitiful on his part: He ended up killed by the Patriots via Raiden, [[WellIntentionedExtremist after working hard to re-establish the USA as how the Founding Fathers founded it with liberty]], especially when he had nothing else to leave behind other than this. This is best demonstrated by his final actions: after falling from Federal Hall, his last visible action is him reaching up to a statue of George Washington in longing, as he attempted to redo America the way Washington originally founded it.

%%* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'': "When I'm gone, they'll just find another monster.* [[DiscOneFinalBoss Dutch van der Linde]] from ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption''. According to John Marston, Dutch was once an altruistic idealist who led his gang with the goal of bettering the world. His descent into insanity was triggered by the realization that all his efforts to improve the world were futile, combined with the guilt of all his deeds. His final moments are a somber affair between him and John where Dutch shares an epiphany he's had. Dutch admits he can't change the world and he can't change his nature, so he fought all his life despite knowing it was a lost cause. Dutch ends up committing suicide rather than let himself be captured by the government he spent his life rebelling against, his death symbolically tied to the end of the romanticization surrounding the Old West.

** Even earlier were Camus and Emperor Hardin in the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Akaneia series]]. The former is an [[WorthyOpponent honorable knight]] who helps the player at several points even though he works for the enemy and suffered from MyCountryRightOrWrong. His death is somewhat lessened by ''Gaiden'' revealing that he was NotQuiteDead, but he still gave up his old identity as Camus. The latter was a trustworthy ally who fought alongside Marth, and was a great Hero to the many he rescued from slavery. He ended up going through a DespairEventHorizon and getting BrainwashedAndCrazy into [[EvilOverlord being a power-hungry tyrant]]. As he's dying, he [[DyingAsYourself reverts back to his old heroic self]]. Both characters likely inspired the later {{tragic villain}}s in the series.
** The remake of the game [[FillerVillain adds]] Kleine. Throughout the game, she's depicted as a sadistic, cold-hearted killer, who constantly abuses her adoptive sister Katarina for being useless. So you look forward to the moment when you finally get to fight her... and her death comes as one of the most heart-wrenching [[TearJerker tear jerkers]] in the series, specially when she asks Katarina "StayWithMeUntilIDie."
*** Also, Eremiya from the remake.

Gharnef put her under MindRape when she fell into despair after witnessing the deaths of the orphans she originally cared for during the war, turning her ''into'' a Mega-Abusive-Bitch? And now, while she's dying, he completely restores her memories of who she once was, laughs, and lets her bleed to death in complete despair? ... Ouch. Just... ''[[TearJerker ouch]]''!
