Don't read the comments or even the list if you don't want something ruined for you (though the big list does NOT tell which characters die, just if any DO die).
Artist Comments (please read this!)
•Feel free to share your tragic character deaths, but please include a spoiler warning!
If not for others for me, since I have to look at this list on a regular basis. Just got myself a Lost spoiler I hadn't wanted to read, now I'm all paranoid again.

•I don't reply to every comment, but I read every comment. And I appreciate all the props this stamp is getting. Thank you all!

•If you have questions like 'Who dies in Elder Scrolls: Oblivion?' or 'Who was your favorite character in Sonic?' I can't always answer because I haven't seen/heard/read/played all of the things mentioned. Remember this is a contribution of many peeps.

I've had somebody mention how it's neat that such different forms of literature and movies are all in the same list. Shakespeare and Naruto? Agatha Christie and Invader Zim? It's just neat that people of so many different tastes can come together. :')

Here is a great deviation in the (sad) spirit of favorite characters being no more: [link]

Crossing my fingers for a 7th Supernatural season. As long as my Cas is okay, I'm good with it!

I don't update this regularly anymore, but I haven't abandoned it. You can keep telling me about your fandoms, and keep commenting, as long as you don't mind very late replies. :)

If you are posting a spoiler warning, you should say something like, SPOILER FOR DEVIL MAY CRY 2 (enter enter) character death (enter enter) END SPOILER. You have no idea how often I get a spoiler I didn't really want to know about, and it would be so very much appreciated if you could tell me what you're about to spoil. Thanks so much!
Now Alphabetical! : D

My personal list:
Age of Mythology, All Quiet on the Western Front (of course), Animal Farm, The Bartimeaous Trilogy, Call of the Wild, Cirque de Freak; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Draggon; The Dark Knight, The Da Vinci Code, Digimon (television) Dragonball Z, Eragon, Fullmetal Alchemist, Gattaca, The Great Gatsby, Harry Potter, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Inkheart, The Invisible Man, King Arthur, Kingdom Hearts II, The Last Samurai, Le Miserables, The Matrix, Moby Dick, The Outsiders, The Picture of Dorian Gray (omfg whyyy), Pirates of the Caribbean, Quarentine, Redwall (several titles), Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Stolen (novel), Sounder, Things Fall Apart, Timeline (film), Varjak Paw, The Wyrd Museum.

(Comment your sad deaths if you want to, but post spoiler warnings if it's fairly new!)
(If you have questions like 'Who dies in Elder Scrolls: Oblivion?' I can't always answer because I haven't seen/heard/read/played all of the things mentioned, sorry!)

This stamp couldn't have conveyed my emotions enough...The latest chapters from The "Song of Ice and Fire" (Book four) series really upset me, because it confirmed one of my (surprisingly) favorite characters died, but not only that, died OFF SCREEN. Sure, he was wounded very badly last time I saw him in the third book, so it was clear there was no hope left for him, but COME ON... He was just starting to really get interesting with this other character I really like (Two of them are my favorite characters, not gonna say their names, tho), but then she just left him there...

I can never pick a character that ends up okay or anything...It's like a curse to me T__T I just HAVE to gravitate towards characters who will no doubt get the axe, and they always happen to be the most interesting of characters as well...So sad...*Goes off to mourn my 343th favorite character in the graves*

I know I've probably commented on this a million times by now, but I might as well go over the list.
Also, this goes without saying, but MASSIVE SPOILERS AWAIT. READ THE LIST AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Nausicaa: Sure, she came back to life, but her death hit like A TON OF BRICKS. She was pretty much the prime example of a fictional role-model, and when she got trampled to death by those enraged ohmu, I cried my eyes out.

Leopardstar: In a book series like the Warriors saga where it's normal to have two or more characters die in every book, it's only natural that your favorite will go off to hunt with StarClan sooner or later. WARNING, HIGHLY UNPOPULAR OPINION UP AHEAD! FLAME SHIELDS ACTIVATED! My personal favorite character was Leopardstar. I felt like her character development was very well executed and she definitely became a much more likable character as the series went on. If you compare how she was in the first arc to how she is in the second or third arcs, you can tell that she has learned a lot. By the time her character had fully developed, she was genuinely respectable, kept a cool head, and was not one to be trifled with at all. Sadly, by the beginning of the fourth arc, her mind began to deteriorate from sickness and drought, and in the very next book, she died. Since I wasn't aware of the events in the first Omen of the Stars book, Leopardstar's death came directly out of left field for me. As much as I wanted to cry, I was in a public library, so all I could do was let out a somewhat quiet gasp while I most likely started wailing on the inside.

Xion: ...Hoo boy... where do I begin with this one...? Well, I found her to be incredibly likeable, being a sweet person who would occasionally say something that deserved to be on a T-shirt *points to the first part of my signature*...but then she found out she was a robot who was meant to copy the abilities of her best friend/possible boyfriend or something like that. After that point, she lost a ton (if not all) of her self-esteem. Let me tell you, it's really hard to see a character you like degrade themselves on a regular basis (doesn't help that one of her superiors kept insulting her nonstop in addition). So, in the final act of the game she made her debut in, she got captured, and then she was reprogrammed to kill her best friend/possible boyfriend-I DUNNO, CLARIFY IT ALREADY, SQUARE ENIX! ...Anyway, she challenges him to a battle to the death, which she loses. Just saying, seeing her death scene felt like a huge punch to the gut, even though I knew what was going to happen since I saw that said cutscene before I even bought the game.

Toboe: Just...Toboe...I can't say anything else...

Rue and Foxface: I'm not exactly the biggest fan of the Hunger Games series (to be fair, I've only read the first book and saw the first movie), but my two favorites ended up dying nevertheless. Rue is pretty much self-explanatory, and then there was Foxface. Foxface was probably one of the least violent contenders and, instead of resorting to violence in order to achieve victory, she tried to outlast her opponents. I really liked this, as it kinda gave me the impression that Foxface felt like she couldn't go against her morals or something like that. Sadly, she accidentally ate some poisonous berries and died in the process.

The main cast of Chrono Trigger: While it's easy to figure that Frog and Ayla died since they returned to their time periods, it's only natural that Crono, Marle, Lucca, and Robo would live on, right? ...According to Chrono Cross, the sequel to Chrono Trigger, that couldn't be more wrong. While I haven't played Chrono Cross yet, I have seen a few videos of it. Even so, please excuse me if I get anything wrong. Apparently Crono and Marle were most likely killed when Guardia was taken over by (I think?) Dalton, Lucca was killed by (I think) Lynx when her orphanage was burned to the ground, and Robo turned into the supercomputer F.A.T.E, that, guess what, is a boss later on in the game, so...yeah, he's dead too. :(

And the list just keeps going on and on...

At least Jade Curtiss and Quistis didn't die. How the latter survived, with her being from a Square Enix game of all things, I have no clue. I guess she's just really, really, really, really lucky.
