Last Words: "Hey, hey, cut me some slack. I've got a wife and kid at home."

Indeed he did. The kind, caring, cheery Maes Hughes was one person who definitely did not deserve to die. Worst of all, you know he's never going back to see his family, and soon, that same family will have to bury him. The fact that he didn't even kill Envy (who was disguised as his wife at the time) on his way out just throws salt in the wound.

Last Words: "Bang."

That's all he had to say. Throughout the entire Cowboy Bebop series, you grow to know and love Spike Spiegel. Then, during the very last episode, you watch him finally conclude everything to the point where you think he's going to make it out of this last epic fight.

He holds up his fingers like a gun in an ostensible gesture of triumph. Our quirky bounty hunter did it! He can finally move on with his life. Then you look at him and see how seriously injured up he is and... "Bang." Instead of walking away from the scene in glory, he collapses and dies. It's like the show just shot a big hole in your heart where Spike used to be.

Last Words: "Daddy? I love you."

In an anime about death, both the audience and Tomoya were forced to go through an insane amount of tragedy and heartbreak. But the death of Tomoya's child in Clannad: After Story is enough to break down even the toughest anime fan.

Although cliché, her final words before her body goes limp and passes away took your heart and threw it in a garbage disposal. Oh, and the fact that Tomoya calls for the help of his dead wife while his daughter dies in his arms doesn't help either.

Last Words: "I know I cannot be, but I wish I could go to where you have gone... How I wish I could join you there... Haku..."

Zabuza came rolling through Naruto as a bad dude on a bad mission. You don't really have any sympathy for him until you learn about his relationship with his young ward, Haku. After Haku dies, Zabuza gets taken down not long after. 

His final sentence is so self-aware and clings so desperately to the solidarity of his life that it cuts deeper than any kunai.
