The following is a list of last words attributed to various fictional characters in animated television shows. Characters are listed according to the originating show, then the name of character the quote is attributed to (in case of more than one quote per source). 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.

Spoiler warning: Plot, ending, or solution details follow.

Quotes

  • To think that you are their leader now, the end is near. Those who stand above others, must have noble ideals, along with the most noble intentions. Anyone that cannot manage the will of the masses is not fit to serve as leader of knights. You say you're punishing someone for standing up to you? That kind of justice, is a lie. (We are an official section of the CC corporation. If that's a problem for you, well then don't play.) You mean, you'll kill us all. It's an insult to call that justice. You are silencing the players through mass murder. Remember this, those who call themselves knights must not hide behind a shield of false justice. If you forget that, you are nothing but an empty shell.

    • Who: Euphemia li Britannia
    • Source: Code Geass
    • Note: After Zero accidentally gives the order "Kill the Japanese," he shoots her to end the massacre that follows.

However, the assassination was, in fact, a plan by Lelouch himself in order to create worldwide peace with his death. His final words confirm Nunnaly's sudden realization of her brother's plan, The "Zero Requiem." Lelouch death is left for the viewer to interpret as both the final lines of the show and the name of the season itself (R2) imply that he may have become an immortal by sacrificing his Geass.

Lelou, you've been fighting all by yourself... against this world. So that's why... I wanted... to become the one thing truthful to you. [Lelouch:"...Shirley."] I love you, Lelou. Even when I knew you killed my father... I couldn't... bring myself to hate you. Even when you tried to make me forget everything... I still fell... in love with you again. Even my memories were altered... I still fell in love again. [Lelouch activates his geass.][Lelouch:"No! Don't die Shirley!"] No matter how many times I'm reborn... I'm sure... I'll fall in love with you again, Lelou. This is... fate, right? [Lelouch:"Don't die, Shirley! Don't die! Don't die!] So it's okay, right, Lelou? That I fall in love with you again when I'm reborn? No matter... how many times... I'll... fall in love... with you.
