Some of the saddest moments in Naruto are the last moments before a character passes away. This is when we get to hear their final words - or in some cases, their final thoughts. 

For this list, we're looking at Naruto characters' last words that really hit hard. Some, Itachi Uchiha's, reflect their love for the person they're speaking to. Others, like Konan's, reflect their desire to carry out one last task before they go. Many involve entrusting their hopes to Naruto Uzumaki, either after he defeated them and helped them realize where they went wrong, or because they were on his team to begin with.

Which of these final quotes do you find the most devastating? Be sure to vote it up.

    Fugaku Uchiha Forgives His Son

    "Don't hesitate; it's the path you chose. Our pain will only last an instant, unlike yours. The way we think may be different, but I'm still proud of you." 

    One might have expected that Itachi's parents would feel betrayed when they saw their son massacring their clan - but that's not the case. Instead, he accepted his son's choice, encouraged him to press on, and assured him that he loved him.

  • "You don't have to forgive me. No matter what you decide to do from now on, I will always love you."

    These are the last words that Itachi says before he fades away in his Edo Tensei form. They're directed at his beloved little brother Sasuke, who he sacrificed their entire family to protect.

  • "Now, I suppose it's about time I put down my pen. Oh... that's right... What should I name the sequel? I wonder... let's see... The Tale of Naruto Uzumaki. Yes, that has a nice ring to it."

    When Jiraiya passes, he can't actually speak - these are his last thoughts, instead. Despite having been through a chaotic and painful battle with his former disciple, he's able to mentally articulate his hopes for the future, which lie in Naruto. 

    Sad final words?
  • Kushina: Oh, Naruto, there's so much... oh, so much more...! There are so many things I wish I had time to pass onto you... so much more I wanna tell you! I wish I could stay with you longer! I love you! Minato, I'm sorry. I used up your time.

    Minato: Naruto, my words to you... well, I guess your talkative mom said it all.

    Kushina and Minato were looking forward to meeting their new son Naruto, but they only get to be with him for less than a day. After sealing the Nine Tails into his newborn body, they tell him all the things they would have wanted to teach him, had they had the opportunity.
