To be honest I am Horde and I cried when Varian Said "For the Alliance" In the face of Gul'dan mocking him, and That would be the Most touching it would get for me but....Vol'jin died, Sylvanas took over, and As they are burning His Corpse in a bonfire with the Horde Witnessing them, Nothing but the flames can be heard, everyone is standing Silent, then Breaking the Silence, Sylvanas voiced the Words, "Vol'jin is dead, who among you, will help me, avenge him?" And Suddenly the Horde regained it's voice, the Crowd Thunders Loudly, Orcs and Trolls Roaring while The Forsaken are bowing their Heads in Agreement, You can hear a Clear phrase echo through the wind, "For the Horde" and yes, When I watching that Cinematic, I started Screaming Loudly too, "For the Horde" I miss Legion

I wish I could find that clip you used. The one with Sam saying that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. And I had just found out who those characters are, but I can't find that clip.

For me, one of the hardest hitting sacrifices occurs during the Flames of Truth scene of FFXIV. You see Louisoix willingly transform himself to destroy Bahamut, knowing that this will kill him. He still does it anyways, going out with a smile. Slightly subverted in the fact that Bahamut effectively brainwashes his transformed form and you have to end it for him. But he went into it fully expecting to die, to never see the future he helped create.
:/ sorry guys I love SACRIFICE the ios android game

If the character didn't have to die to count as a self sacrifice, Pits sacrifice to save Dark Pit would be on here.

StarCraft series: Tassadar, a protoss hero who sacrificed himself to slow Amon's plans of wiping humans and protoss from the universe using the zerg. Yes, the zerg's new leader massacred millions more humans and protoss but that's on her. He hoped that his sacrifice would be the end of the zerg but even though his sacrifice didn't have the desired effect, it culminated in the alliance between all three races that ultimately ended Amon. Tales of Vesperia: Don Whitehorse, a second-tier character. Don Whitehorse is the leader of the Guild Union of Dahngrest, a wise old mountain of a man. He has a gruff way of speaking but he inspires others to do everything they can for the greater good. He leads his people by example and what an example he set. His end comes when the treacherous snakes that make up the villains of the first half of the game conspire to kill his oldest friend and succeed in doing so. To answer for the fact that those snakes manipulated his naive grandson to committing the foul deed, he takes his own life to prevent a war. Insult to injury, one of those same foul snakes turns up "grieving" at his funeral.

If I could add a comment, so late after this video was posted, I'd like to mention (spoilers for PMD: Explorers of darkness/time/sky Grovyle or the hero character. you eventually learn that by fixing time and saving the future, you end up fading away, as if you never existed. yet you and grovyle still went on the mission, knowing you'd no longer exist. Bonus points for grovyle who throws himself and dusknoir back to the future to help guarantee you can finish the mission. You both sacrifice not only your lives, but your very existence, your spot in history to save those you never met before. It's still the only game that will make me tear up every time I play and get to the farewell scene at he end

Another one should be Jin's sacrifice in Xenobalde Chronicles 2, because with all the shit he did out of not being able to let go of the past due to Lora's words of desperation as she was dying, it was only in death that he could redeem himself, though he also did succeed in bringing Amalthus down with him. It's kind of like John Marston's ending, except John was forced into it against his will while everything Jin did was of his choosing, and only now realizing how badly he screwed up, it was only in death that he could truly atone.
Master Driver Rex (5 months ago)
One that should have been up here is Ragna's sacrifice in BlazBlue: Central Fiction. I mean, being *THE* *ACTUAL* subtitle of the game, Ragna basically had to fade out of existence to the point the people who were close to him one way or another would have their memories of him wiped clean... All due to the fact that it was his very existence that was making events repeat over and over again, thus having the world to constantly suffer at the hands of Terumi, just because he wanted Ragna to suffer most of all. It's a pretty sad ending because even though Ragna does what he does to make sure Terumi will never troll people again in the most psychopathic of ways... It's also inadvertently a victory for Terumi. Pretty much the definition of being between a rock and a hard place, and no matter what, you're not going to come out unscathed even if you do come out at all.

No Nier:Automitia? Also if a character comes back later I don't think that should count against them, due to more often than not said character doesn't know they are going to be revived.

I never sacrifice myself in Dragon Age: Origins because Thedas isn't worth dying over. Yea, I said IT. No matter what, the world doesn't improve in any way aside from one less Archdemon. The humans will just conveniently forget the elves' and dwarves' sacrifices, the Chantry will continue to oppress the mages and elves as monsters and heretics and will most likely just forget about the Blights like they did last time and lead to a bunch more pointless deaths. But praise be to the Maker, right? I loved Dragon Age, even if Dragon Age 2 wound up as one of the worst and lackluster sequels, to which I only played Origins again and again. I really liked Inquisition at first, until they decided that "ZOMG", the elves were just as evil, if not more evil, than the humans and now the Chantry is willing to side with the Tevinter Imperium, the people who enslaved the elves in the first place and caused the creation of the Darkspawn, to hunt down Solas/Fen'Harel. Frankly, seeing as I genuinely despise most humans in Dragon Age, barring the likes of Morrigan or other non-Chantry affiliate mages, I say let the elves have their vengeance. The elven gods are gone, Solas is the last one, the elves could surely make a better world with him leading them and magic can once again prosper.

One of my personal favorite video game character self-sacrifices is from Kid Icarus Uprising when a Chaos Kin pulled a fast one on Dark Pit (AKA Pittoo) and pulls him off a ledge causing him to fall to his death while it tries to consume him, and Pit dove after to save him despite the fact he's Pit's... not exactly his Evil Twin so much as Anti-hero Counterpart. To those of you unaware, Pit lacks the ability to fly on his own, he needs a god/goddess to give him the power of flight- which he can only wield for about 5 minutes at a time before it starts damaging his wings, and has like an hour cooldown or something. When he dives after Dark Pit he tells Viridi (whom he was temporarily allied with at the time) "I need to fly!" to which she says "You already used the power of flight, if I enable it again your wings will catch fire" to which Pit stresses the severity of the situation "the chaos kin is going to destroy Pittoo. I don't care if my wings catch fire!" "Viridi again tries in vain to convince him this is a bad idea "No way, just forget about it, I'm pulling you out..." "No, stop! If we don't help him right now, we won't have another chance! I'm begging you, Viridi, LET ME FLY, NOW!" Viridi begrudgingly complies but says the consequences that come from this action are on his own head. and Pit with the faustian boost swoops down to save his counterpart and fly back to safety- all the while his wings are burning horribly and upon completion his wings are just bloody burned stumps and the rest of him in critical condition. This act carries extra weight when you remember that earlier in the game, there was a wish-granting MacGuffin that they had to use for a specific wish, but just during conversation Palutena asked what Pit would hypothetically wish for, to which Pit answered "I want to be able to fly on my own"... and this is what happens because he can't. Before this whole ordeal where Palutena got brainwashed by the chaos kin, Pit promised her he'd return to their realm victorious, now here he is in her arms at death's door. This action prompts his dark edgy counterpart to try to save him by flying to the magic regeneration pool to dip Pit into it.

The thing that really got me with The Boss’ death is how I was anticipating the final shot to not be a quick time event. I was waiting for Snake to end her himself and my stomach turned at the realization that you, the player, had to do it. Pulling the trigger pretty much destroyed me.

I understand supporting the Alliance. I am a diehard Horde player but I do not like how our faction leaders are usually the source of conflict. During Legion, I could rationalize the decisions Sylvanas made even when I did not agree with them. Today, I still play as Horde but I give moral support to the Alliance.

about entry number 9... it actually saved Samus life twice... the serum of Metroid DNA that saved her from the X Parasite came from it... which ironically makes her the last surviving Metroid if I had to guess where the story could go from there, since she is the last remaining Metroid, maybe that could put her at odds with many of the higher ups from the GF, now making her the target of many Bounty Hunters and even corrupt GF personal, what action and past must she take now? what of her belief and faith? what about those Chozo that seemed like the next big targets? and... what if the Metroid DNA starts to wreack havoc in her body

HOW COULD I FORGET: NieR: Automata. Just...wow. I don't want to spoil but you'll know it when you see it and it is one of the most amazing things I've ever experienced in a game when I think of the bigger picture.

Be fair the genophage was not meant to wipe out the krogan just inhibit them because of their high birth rate. but the effect was them being wiped out because they couldn't restrain their violent urges that was made probably far worse because they armed a species that was far from ready as a species to have fuckin nukes and railguns. fortunately with the right decisions you can put the krogan in a good place to change... but without wrex.... yea

You know something? Aside from the Batman games, there have been a number of sacrifices in DC shows. Ever watched Batman: the Brave and the Bold? That was kind of a quirky and old-fashion styled show that brought back a lot of the old versions of the DC heroes. However...that show didn't hold back on the sacrifices that took place in that show. Also....I have to wonder, what DC show didn't have any of their characters make sacrifices?

Wait, with Mordin I thought the start said anybody who can be saved isn't included? Mordin is spared from death if both Wrex and Eve/Bakara are dead, and you convince him Wreav will just restart the Krogan Wars. Same for the Grey Wardens, so long as a male Warden agrees to sleep with Morrigan (be it you if your male, or Allistair), they are all spared as the baby absorbs the Dragon soul. Also if the male Warden romanced her, the Grey Warden can end up raising the child with her anyways as a family (until he leaves them to try and find a cure to the Calling).

The genophage was not designed for genocide. It was only ever meant to curtail the insane fertility of the krogan. The salarians and the turians just completely failed to account for how violent, unfocused, and pessimistic krogan can be. Thus, the genophage basically spelled their species' doom.

I would have add code mw3 mission either down the rabbit hole or dust to dust. While soaps death was sad. It wasn't self sacrifice.
George Johnson (7 months ago)
I think you missed the key element of Mordin’s death. He created the genophage and spent the second game content with his actions. With deep remorse for the monstrous act he was a part of, he decided it was time to try to clean the blood from his hands by giving the krogan the future he didn’t once believe they deserve. Since this was his project and this was his mission, he had to be the one to see it through. There is a dialogue option when the explosion goes off if he didn’t sing in ME2 that I love so much more. “Genophage cured. Krogan free. New beginning...for everyone” this has so much power to me and it’s tough to keep the water works away. His new beginning...

could Vayne from FFXII be a Heroic Sacrifice? I mean , He did go Down as a Villian... but he did that so humans could free themselfs from the Crystal Power and live their lifes free from the Gods Tyranny. Even if the world would see him as a villian , he would have done a Great Deed for Humanity P.S. Im not a Pony , I am a Dragon!

SPOILER FOR RED DEAD 2This may be an unpopular opinion but I believe that Arthur Morgan’s sacrifice carried a lot more impact than johns as we see him grow as a character through his disease and growing distrust of Dutch and Micah only for him and John to be abandoned by the gang to fight the pinkertons and it’s because of this sacrifice that John and his family could live on, rather than sticking with Dutch as his mind slowly turns to insanity with the prodding of Micah and the constant failed scores only to finish with the 2 the questioned Dutch to be stranded and attacked with Micah finally killing Arthur or leaving him for dead with a great last stand being hunted by the government and an ex gang member only a small bit mirroring Dutch’s end and so that’s why u believe that Arthur’s death carried much more influence in the story and how it turned out

Slave Knight Gael. Literally sacrificed himself to endure the passing of thousands of years just to get the dark soul so the protagonist could kill him and claim his dark soul infused blood to create another world. He's a great dark image of Galahad from Malory's "Quest of the SankGreal" (Quest for the Holy Grail) who claims the Holy Grail where Gawain and Lancelot and every other knight fails through his unwavering faith.
