There was no saving Kuzuki. His mind was already made up. He'd lost Caster, and only saw one path; to see through what they had started (a.k.a. fight).
*And* even if Shirou still tried to interfere, Archer would have sliced him to ribbons.
This list had some poor choices in my opinion.For example, naruto and the others were probably gonna kill Zabuza on their own in the long run so there would be point in saving him from his suicidal, yet revengeful, killing spree
Mad Pierott was already long since living in name only. The experiments that gave him his psychic powers were hideously traumatic to start with, but they also caused progressive restructuring and chemical rebalance of the brain in the manner of the Crazies of RIFTS. This compounded the aforementioned trauma to cause Pierott to regress to a childlike state... and not in a good way.
It’s funny I thought I was going to enjoy Envy’s death, but I actually teared up over how it died. I think Envy was jealous because it had no real identity as it was created with no gender. In fact if you think about it all 7 homunculus were suffering by what they were created to be, the very incarnations of human sins. I wish they could’ve been reincarnated as humans with no memories of their past lives so they could start over.
Villain tries to kill hero, torture innocents, enslave humanity and destroy the world.
Everyone: Why did you kill him, that makes you no better than him.
Hero: erm... OK, I guess I should have let him do it?
Drifters?? well i watch an alternative manga, Shinju no Néctar, ist almost the same thing except the art is better, there more girls and its more like a a world with fantasy races in a industrial era geeting close to world war 1.
Most of the things listed here... the hero had no power over deciding the villain's fate (without seriously being in harm's way or being stupid). "Scenes where the hero lets the villain die" implies that the hero chose not to save the villain in a situation where he had no further risk to save him, similar to how Batman chose not to save Ras in Batman Begins. Shishio immolating himself was completely outside of Kenshin's powers (the only way to save him, was for Kenshin himself to die quickly).
It also implies that the hero has something against killing. Cowboy Bebop and Drifters had no such code to begin with. They were all about killing your enemies.
I wouldn't say Naruto and the other let Zabuza die. They were all pretty badly injured and its not like they liked killing so its not like they could really help zabuza as tired and injured as they were. Man that series killed Zabuza twice and both were sad. It's a testiment to the character that nearly 700 episodes later you still remembered Zabuza when he reappeared with Haku and died with Haku again and still feel that emotional pain.
When it comes to FMA and Kenshin - for real?
Ed didn't know Envy was going to destroy the philosopher stone and destroy himself. Pride eating Gluttony, the bit with Father, others I can see in that that fit better than that one.
And the Kenshin one - what else is he going to do? He can't NOT fight him, Shishio is not letting him leave alive, he has to defend himself - and obviously, especially being a huge plot point of him learning the most powerful technique, is him getting to a point of not wanting to die. Shishio knew his limits, he pushed pass the limits, and he set himself on fire - ni different than when Jinae took his own life. Which, once again we come to better examples because there was no stopping Shishio to prevent his combustion, and once he was on fire, no way to save him. Jinae on the other hand, there were ways he could and time - If Sanoske could stop Megumi, from across the room, without god like speed, Kenshin could have stopped Jinae. I wouldn't fully agree with it but again - better spot filler than the chosen one.
