Top 10 Terrifying Deaths in Disney Movies


[intro music] [music] FROLLO: A baby? [gasp] A monster! NARRATOR: Chills and death? Yes. These animated movies are for kids. [music] ARCHDEACON: Stop! NARRATOR: Welcome to watchmojo.com, and today, we’re counting down our picks for the top ten terrifying deaths in Disney movies. For this list, we’re taking a look at the most horrifying deaths… …from Disney’s animation library that scarred children for life, and left parents asking, “Was that seriously in a G-rated flick?” MALEFICENT: You poor simple fools. Here’s your precious princess. NARRATOR: If you didn’t see a death you thought should be on the list, be sure to check out our videos on the top ten darkest and scariest Disney moments. SCAR: Long live the king. NARRATOR: The top ten cartoon deaths in film, and the top ten saddest cartoon movie moments. And obviously, spoiler alert. POCAHONTAS: [singing] Is the death of all I love carried in the drumming of? No! NARRATOR: Number ten, Gaston: ”Beauty and the Beast”. GASTON: Come on out and fight! NARRATOR: After an intense battle atop Beast’s castle, it looks like maybe Gaston and the Beast might part ways… without spilling any blood. BEAST: Get out. NARRATOR: Since the phrase “Live and let live”… …is foriegn to the egotistical hunter, though, Gaston literally stabs his prey in the back. [music, Beast roars] NARRATOR: This proves to be Gaston’s undoing, as he loses his balance and plummets to his death. [Gaston screams] NARRATOR: If you think Gaston could have miraculously survived the fall somehow, the animators ruled out this possiblity by adding a skull and crossbones… …to his pupils. How subliminably horrifying. BELLE: Oh, this is all my fault. If only I’d gotten here sooner. NARRATOR: Number nine, Scar: ”The Lion King”. SIMBA: Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t rip you apart. NARRATOR: Being something of a Shakespearean villain, it’s only appropriate that Scar is given a proper Shakespearean sendoff. SCAR: This is just the way your father looked before he died. Here’s my little secret. [whispering] I killed Mufasa. NARRATOR: Unlike Gaston, Scar survives his fall, after fighting the film’s hero. [music] NARRATOR: It’s what’s waiting at the bottom of Pride Rock that leads to his ultimate demise. Turns out the Scar’s hyena lackeys don’t appreciate being thrown under the bus. Oh, my friends. SHENZI: [laughing] Friends? I thought he said we were the enemy. BANZAI: Yeah, that’s what I heard. NARRATOR: As fire engulfs the area, the hyenas suround their former boss… ….and maul him to death and likely… ….devour his carcass… …as the camera pans up from the massacre. [stammering] No, no, let me explain. No, you don’t understand. No, no, I didn’t mean… [Hyenas laughing] NARRATOR: Ah, well, circle of life. [music] NARRATOR: Number eight, Professor Ratigan… …”The Great Mouse Detective”. [Olivia grunting] OLIVIA: Basil, look out! NARRATOR: As hard as Ratigan attempts to present himself… …as a refined elitist, he’s really nothing more than a filthy rat. When his schemes fall apart, Ratigan lets the beast inside run rampant… …as he pursues Basil and little Olivia inside Big Ben. [grunt, slapping noise] NARRATOR: The use of sound and building music adds to the tension… …as Ratigan homes in on our heroes, practically ripping Basil to shreds with his claws. [grunt, punching noise] NARRATOR: But, as the clock bell tolls, [loud bell noise] NARRATOR: Ratigan’s time on earth offically runs out, plunging him to an appropriate fate for a rat. [Ratigan screams] NARRATOR: Number seven, Judge Claude Frollo… …”The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. FROLLO: The time has come to end your suffering. NARRATOR: Frollo has deluded himself into thinking that… …he’s a righteous man and a soldier of God, when, in reality, he’s committed every deadly sin in the book. It was my duty, horrible as it was. I hope you will forgive me. NARRATOR: Frollo’s lifetime of sinning and hypocrisy… …finally catch up to him atop Notre Dame. Leaving so soon? NARRATOR: Before he could do Quasimoto and Esmerelda in, Frollo finds himself standing under a crumbling gargoyle. And he shall smite the wicked, and plunge them into the fiery pit! [crumbling noises] NARRATOR: Staring a devil in the face, Frollo drops to his final resting place in a sea of hellfire and molten copper. Talk about an ironic way to go out. [Frollo screams] [explosion] NARRATOR: Number six, Stegosaurus… …”Fantasia”. [music] NARRATOR: This is definitely one of the most blunt deaths in all Disney movies. In the film’s Rite of Spring segment, the peaceful lives of the herbivorous dinosaurs… …are interrupted by a ferocious T-Rex. All the dinosaurs successfully flee, with the exception… …of one slow Stegosaurus. [music] NARRATOR: Being a Disney movie, you’d expect something to come along… …and save the innocent creature, Whiile the Stegosaurus puts up a good fight, his predator naturally triumphs. It’s a truly grounded depiction of prehistoric animal nature and nature in general. Never condescending to the audience. [music] NARRATOR: Number five, Maleficent, ”’Sleeping Beauty”. Maleficent: Now shall you deal with me. Oh, prince! And all the powers of hell! [thunder] NARRATOR: You’d be hard pressed to find a Disney movie… …with a bigger, more exciting final showdown than Sleeping Beauty. In the film’s climax, the wicked Maleficent… …decides to bring her A game to the table, by calling on the powers of hell and taking on the form… …of a fire-breathing dragon in a garden of thorns. [dragon roar, music] [dragon noises] [horse noises] NARRATOR: Thanks to the three fairies’ magic, though, Prince Philip strikes Maleficent in her black heart with his virtuous sword. FLORA: Oh, sword of truth, fly, swift and sure… …that evil die and good endure! NARRATOR: Thus, a ghastly villain meets her gruesome end, notably shedding some fairly graphic blood for a Disney movie. [crashing noise, music] NARRATOR: Number four, Dr. Facilier… …”The Princess and the Frog”. [music, evil laughter] [magic noises, Tiana grunting] NARRATOR: Where Frollo only figuratively fell into hell, Dr. Facilier is literally dragged there in this scene from the Princess and the Frog. FACILIER: Now you will spend the rest of your life being a slimy little frog. [Tiana grunts] NARRATOR: Facilier believes he has the upper hand, with demonic powers on his side, but he underestimates Tiana and her sticky tongue. TIANA: It’s not slime, it’s mucus. [Slimy noise] [music, Facilier gasps] [crack, magic noises] No, no! NARRATOR: With his voodoo charm destroyed, Facilier’s friends from the other side appear to collect their debt. DEMONS: [singing] Are you ready? No! [music] I’m not ready at all! In fact, I’ve got lots more plans! [singing] Are you ready? This is just a minor setback in a major operation. [Facilier shrieks] NARRATOR: In satanic Mardi Gras fashion, an army of masks, dolls and shrunken heads… …take Facilier to their world, whether he is ready or not. The moral of the story? Don’t screw with voodoo. I promise I’ll pay y’all back! I promise! [Facilier screams] NARRATOR: Number three, the Evil Queen, …”Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. QUEEN: Take the apple, dear, and make a wish. NARRATOR: The evil queen might have succeeded, in offing Snow White, but she soon learns that even monarchs can’t get away with murder. [evil laughter] Now I’ll be fairest in the land. NARRATOR: As the seven dwarves race back to the cottage, the queen absconds up a nearby mountain and attempts to crush her pursuers with a giant boulder. I’ll get you! [indecipherable] NARRATOR: When a lightning bolt strikes the cliff, though, the queen becomes the first of many Disney baddies… …to fall to their death. [evil laughter] NARRATOR: Even if the fall didn’t kill her, the boulder most certainly did, providing dinner for some lingering hungry vultures. [Queen shrieks] [thunder] NARRATOR: Number two, Clayton, ”Tarzan”. CLAYTON: You there! Take what you can back to the boat! NARRATOR: This death seems more like something out of a Final Destination movie… …than a Disney animated feature. I’ve got some hunting to do. [music] NARRATOR: There’s no gore, but there might as well be. In the midst of a jungle brawl with Tarzan, Clayton finds himself tangled in a cluster of vines. [Clayton grunts] [vine noises, Clayton grunting angrily] NARRATOR: Unaware of the vine wrapped around his neck, Clayton gets reckless with his machete and hangs his head in defeat. TARZAN: Clayton, don’t– [machete noises] [Clayton yelling] [snapping noise] NARRATOR: The only glimpse the audience gets of the body… …is via its shadow. Which is almost as haunting as seeing the actual carnage. NARRATOR: Before we give our top pick the ax, here are a few honorable mentions. [Scroop screaming, music] [music] [cutting noise] [music, Mr. Arrow screaming] [gunshot] [necklace shatters] [splash] [music] GOTHEL: No. No! No! [music continues] [Mother Gothel screaming] [coat rippling] [music] NARRATOR: Number one, Ursula… …”The Little Mermaid”. [Ursula cackling] [Veronica cackling] NARRATOR: Ursula is already a pretty terrifying presence on her own. [Ursula cackling, people gasping] NARRATOR: How can you make her any more intimidating? How ’bout having her grow, like a hundred feet… …giving her an all-powerful trident, and… …bathing her in a whirlpool of chaos. URSULA: [deep voice] You pitiful, insignificant fools! ERIC: Look out! [music] NARRATOR: The only thing more frightening than Ursula herself… …is how she perishes… …as Prince Eric impales her with a ship, sending the sea witch to a water-y grave. [cracking noises, music] [Ursula screaming] NARRATOR: No matter how old you are, this is total scary overdrive and it was all brought to you by the dark magic of Disney. [lightning noises, music] NARRATOR: Do you agree with our list? Which Disney death terrified you the most? For more fatal top tens published every day, be sure to subscribe to watchmojo.com.

  3. Oh my god I never saw the shadow before and now I can’t believe that Clayton’s death was like that in a Disney movie!!

  4. Seeing Clayton's shadow in a thunder storm is way more scary than it would be if you actually saw his strangled body in the movie

  5. Clayton's death really disturbed and scared me the most. Especially when they showed the shadow of Clayton that really made it worse. Spooky, disturbing and terrifiying.
    That haunt me the most.

  6. Is it just me,or does it seem like Disney is trying to scaring the living shit out of kids watching their movies. Because i wouldn't be surprised if kids started crying being terrified af after seeing a scary disney character death, i watched tarzan and saw Clayton's shadow cause i thought the clip of tarzan in this vid was fake but damn was i wrong. Clayton's death scares me the most along with scar's death….. Tbh i dont think i like disney anymore because of these scary deaths

  7. Clayton hangs Malificent falls Gaston falls the villain in Atlantis falls mother gothel Ursula perishes into the sea

  8. Ratigan falls stegosaurus dies by getting eaten dr falicier dragged to his death the evil queen dies by falling and getting eaten by vultures Kokucam gets shot

  9. On the first one… When the guy with the hat thingy saw the baby,I laughed how scared he was when WatchMojo just spoke… coincidence?

  10. What’s crazy is that I’m sure Tarzan is African American and they killed his enemy by HANGING him. Great job Disney

  11. Meh,
    This is what makes disney movies disney movies dramatic fight seems and death. Kids dont get scared from this they see it as a amazing fight seen

  12. The death scare me the most is clayton (movie tarzan) seeing his dead shadow makes me think "am i going to end up like him?"

  13. So as a kid, I thought Clayton died from some other cause, but when I rewatched the movie a few years ago I was just “Disney?? You put that in a kids movie!?!?”

  14. The Tarzan scene is so scary and I always thought that he died bc of gravity not because of the rope thing omggg

  15. This has nothing to do with the video… but does anyone remember that scene in toy story, where the old guy was fixing up woody… BRUH IT WAS SO SATISFYING

  16. The most terrifying Disney death is the horned Kings death. There's no competition with a terrifying thing being dragged into a cauldron and becoming a skeleton.

  17. My little sister likes Descendants, and so we watched it and I'm now noticing that Gaston has a kid and So do the Voodoo guy from Princess and the Frog but they died

  18. Me: why did dr. Facilia (cant spell 😂) cross the road
    Friend: why
    Me: cause hes got friends on the other side😱😱😱😂😂😂
    Friend: who the frick are you 🙃😂🙃😑😑

  19. Am I the only one who didn't get scared of those deaths because i thought the villans totally deserved it?
    Edit:sorry for bad english

  20. Y’all don’t know how long it took for me to find out the Evil Queen and Maleficent weren’t the same person
