Look, we know the characters mentioned below aren't real. They weren't born, they didn't have lives, they didn't really “die” – They were concocted in someone's mind, written on the page, primarily for the purposes of navigating dramatic situations for our entertainment. We promise that we fundamentally understand this…. But that doesn't mean it doesn't sting when these characters meet their ultimate ends in unsatisfying ways. Admiral Ackbar gets blown up in The Last Jedi, and were all supposed to move on like our favorite fish dude meme hasn't just been obliterated like it was nothing? Rian Johnson WHY? What did the “It's A Trap!” guy ever do to you? 

Here are some of the biggest bummers in all of fictional deaths, some because they were underwritten or pointless, others because the plot moved on too quickly to properly let us mourn our fictional friends.

Oh, and spoilers, obviously. Proceed with caution.
