Troper Tale in disguise, complete with This Troper. Kill This Troper, as well as Natter that follow them.
* On the same note, this troper found [[spoiler:Yashamaru's death]] quite saddening as well, especially after [[spoiler:he dies after spending several episodes promising to himself that he would get back safely to his wife, the abovementioned Hotarubi. Needless to say, this troper found his killers' deaths quite satisfying, especially when one of the two murderers was stabbed to death by mere non-ninja mooks.]]

* Actually, ''every single damn death'' in the whole anime was sad in a sort of way. [[spoiler: If not because of the actual character, then for the clan. ''Inside'' the clan, all of them were likable characters and [[TrueCompanions kind of a family]]. And just with the death of one family member, it will never be like before. For this troper, Akeginu's death was the saddest moment. She was so close to avenging Jingorou and Koshirou, but is stopped by Saemon/Tenzen, whom she believed to be at her side, gets stabbed with a blade, told that she would go to hell and Oboro would soon follow, then she is thrown down a bridge. What a disturbing and sad end. Thinking of the events of Basilisk as a whole, I can only think "WhatASenselessWasteOfHumanLife". Damn shogun.]]

* Let's not forget the gruesome yet heartbreaking way Okoi died at the hands of Nenki and how her last moments with her brother were. Just when you thought she was about to get away, especially avoiding rape twice! And then we have Saemon-as-Yashamaru as the recipient of her FamousLastWords, unable to grieve and mourn for his beloved sister no matter how his heart is '''breaking''' right there.

* Nondeadly one, there's the scene where the [[spoiler: recently blinded]] Koshiro believes that someone, maybe Gyobu, is approaching and react... only to find out that he almost hit Akeginu. His following breakdown is really sad to watch. Add it the one he has when [[spoiler: Tenzen's trying to rape Oboro on the ship and he's torn between the loyalty to the man who raised him and the love for his lady of liege]] and you can really say that he qualifies as a IronWoobie. * The [[spoiler: ColdBloodedTorture that Kagerou was subjected to]] reaches this extreme when [[spoiler: the same woman that she wanted to murder out of jealousy, Oboro, blindly stumbles into the place where Tenzen is torturing her, begging him to spare her.]] You know [[BreakTheCutie your life is simply]] ''[[BreakThecutie terrible]]'' when the one who shows compassion for you in one of your darkest hours ever is [[spoiler: someone whom you loathe and want dead.]]

* Lets not forget the gruesome way Okoi died at the hands of the monkey man and how her last moments with her brother were. Just when you thought she was about to get away especially avoiding rape twice! As for Yashamaru, he died a man and his supposed "murderers" were comrades helping each other.
