Is it cheating to say Hannah from 13 Reasons Why? Not the actual death scene, but the second season finale, when Clay speaks at her memorial and her spirit walks out of the church as Clay lets her go. It felt more final and had me in tears.
If you want a more traditional death, Jin and Sun from Lost. They just reunited after three years and then they die? YOU HEARTLESS BASTARDS!!!
Very good off the radar pick. We were talking about that movie at work last month, and I found the clip of her coming in for the save against the t-rex. Still managed to give me goosebumps after all these years.

Mufasa in The Lion King was the first fictional character death to really get to me emotionally. Littlefoot's mom never got to me in the same way because when I saw Land Before Time the first time, I was way too young to really understand what death meant. Same with Bambi's mom.
Movies and TV shows with dog or cat deaths always get to me. I was a wreck at the end of Old Yeller. It's why I won't see movies like Marley & Me or A Dog's Purpose.
Han Solo's death in The Force Awakens made me tear up a lot, too. Once I got over the shock of it. Same with the major death in Endgame.
And while not related to a particular character's death, I saw Rogue One again like 2 days after Carrie Fisher died. I cried at the final scene with a young Princess Leia because of that.
I wouldn't call it the saddest but one that comes to mind is Opie from Sons of Anarchy. The method by which he's killed is fairly brutal in and of itself. But the fact that he's willing to sacrifice himself because he feels he's got nothing left.
Someone mentioned Charlie and 'Not Pennys Boat' from Lost earlier, which is a good shout. In a similar vein I'd throw in Sun and Jin too.
Prime's death was the biggest but not the only one. Hey kids,wanna see your favorite characters in a big time movie? Here they are and most of them are going to be brutally slaughtered!
That movie traumatized a whole generation of kids.
I know it was largely because Hasbro demanded room to bring in a bunch of new designs for figures, but boy, did they get read the riot act by parents, to the point where they couldn't kill Duke in the GI Joe movie.
Which does give us Duke hilariously being impaled and really obviously dying because they had already animated it, and a rush job to disguise that fact.
