Fictional last words in comic books, graphic novels, and manga

From Wikiquote
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of last words attributed to various fictional characters in comic books, including print anime and manga, as well as graphic novels. Characters are listed according to source (i.e. the originating work), then the name of character the quote is attributed to (in case of more than one quote per source). Where quotes come from a series of texts, they are organised in the order of the texts they appeared in. Where possible, for the purposes of clarification, further explanatory notes have been presented. Additionally, if a character's final words consist of a dialogue with the other characters, the other character's speech may be included for contextual purposes; for example, if one character asks a question that the one who is about to die answers.

Some characters may have more than one "death," in instances such as being resurrected, or existing temporarily as an undead being. In some of those instances, their last words from each "death" may be added if they are significant. Additionally, significant last words from deaths that are merely assumed to have happened or are non-canon are included. Additionally, in instances where there are multiple outcomes, or in media with alternate timelines, the character's last words will be featured.

  • Everyone, the shiniga...
  • ...Light Yagami... So... I... I wasn't wrong... but... I...

    • Who: Helicopter Pilot
    • Note: Character exchanged Sayu Yagami for the Investigation Team's Death Note and is talking with a leader in Mello's gang. The leader says "Oh yeah, you'll be cleared all right. Do it", and causes the helicopter to explode, killing the pilot.

    • Who: Sochiro Yagami
    • Notes: Character, the head of the investigation team, had been shot by one of Mello's gang members while on a raid to find and kill Mello, and is dying of gunshot wounds.

He says this to his son, Light, and believes that his son is not Kira because he can see his lifespan (which is invisible for Death Note owners).

    • Who: Kiyomi Takada
    • Note: Character has killed Mello, and is talking to Light Yagami, hoping for his help. Contrary to Takada's expectations, though, Light uses the Death Note to cause Takada to commit suicide with fire, killing herself and incinerating all the evidence that indicated she had killed Mello.
  • I don't want to die! I don't want to pass away! [lunges forward but falls to the ground]] Shit...
    • Who: Light Yagami
