SEAN YOUNG ("Rachael") in BLADE RUNNER.  She's sad and pathetic needing to believe her fake memories.

Tetsuo's girlfriend in Akira.  She got beaten up, possibly raped, treated like crap by everyone, then -- then -- SHE GETS CRUSHED TO DEATH!

That was one of the first times I ever said "f**k you, movie."

Jessie from Toy Story 2

Loved and cherished at one point in her life only as a toy only to be thrown under the bed by her owner. She took one last drive with her owner only to be left at a donation bin.   Bluesad

I'll take this from one particular individual to one particular group of individuals, as there is no one particular individual in the group, but, as for the group as a whole . . .? Yes, brothers. We be soulmates.

And this was harder that I thought it be, as there was more than one level of feeling of badness. Thus from most to least.

You lose (your life) and your side loses.
The Alamo (2004): the Texicans
Dr. Zhivago: the Whites
Enemy of the State: the NSA employees
Glory: the officers of the 54th Massachusetts
Le Miserables (1998): the student agitators
The Messenger: the captain of the king's archers and his two young squires
The Mission: the missionaries
The Most Dangerous Game (1932): Count Zaroff's servants
Zulu Dawn: the Whites

You lose (your life), but your side wins
Bugsy Malone: Fat Sam's gangmembers
Clash of the Titans (2010): the soldiers of Argos
Dog Soldiers: the soldiers
Krull: the outlaws
The Lord of the Rings (1978): the Riders of Rohan
Waterloo: the Allies

You save (your life, if injured), but your side loses
D2: the Hawks (injured)
Dead Poets' Society: the students
Happiness: the young rape victims (injured)

You save (your life, if injured), your side wins, but you rue the loss of life on your side
The Bounty: the naval officers
Bram Stoker's Dracula: the posse members
Christopher Columbus (1992): Chris' crew
Oliver: the pickpockets
Romeo and Juliet (1968): the street brawlers (injured)
Toy Soldiers: the students

You save (your life, if injured) your side wins, and no life is lost on your side. Everone wins.
The Mighty Ducks: the Ducks (injured)
Recess (2001): King Bob's courtiers
To Sir, with Love (1967) the students

Mickey Rourke's character in The Wrestler.  Simply because its an all too true tale of many pro wrestlers fallen from grace.

Steve Buscemi (as Donnie) in Big Lebowski:  constantly browbeaten, then drops from a heart attack and they stuff his ashes in a coffee can.  Poor, poor Donnie!
Edie in Heat (not sure of the actress' name).  I felt bad for a lot of the characters in Heat, actually, but her especially.
Mickey Rourke's character in The Pledge:  he only has one scene, but it's definitely memorable.

Well, here's one: Tracy Mills (Gwyenth Paltrow) from Se7en.





SPOILERS!!!


 I mean, you see tons of murder victims in movies and various horror films but I think that's one that really freaking shocked you when it occurred.

I AM THE BAD PHOTOSHOP EFFECT!

Taking a break from the giant monster/action/ sci-fi movies I normally watch, I recently saw a film called My Sister's Keeper.  I really felt bad for the mian character: a 13 year old girl named Anna.

Her older sister Kate is dying from some disesase and need a lot of transplants, and Anna finds out the only reason her parents had her, was so that Kate has a viable donor.  Anna will be forced to give up organs, and undergo pain medical procedures, so she sues her parents to get medical emancipation to the rights to her own body.  Naturally, there's some backlash. 

Anna's mother (played by Cameron Diaz) is played as someone who is so desprite to save one child, she doesn't see the damage she is doing to the rest of her family. 

But what really made me feel for the character came from when I did some research on the movie.  It's based on a book.  The final plot points of the movie are sad.  What happens in the book is out right devestating.  No spoilers from me, but overall I really felt bad for her.

In a slightly different take:

Darth Vader and The Borg for being completely AWESOME, evil-incarnate (okay, the Borg were not really Evil, just doing their thing, but...) and then getting castrated in subsequent films/episodes.

(I'm in the SW Ep IV is the Only True Star Wars camp...Vader was evil there - became more human with the whole ESB father-son psychobabble).

So, my vote is for Vader in EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and The Borg in any episode after "Q Who?" for having their true character completely undermined.
