In the fourth great Ninja War, we got to see so many deaths. Among all, Neji’s death made everyone sad and Neji’s last words to Naruto surely made every Naruto fan cry. Neji was a little arrogant and doesn’t really a fan favorite for fans at the start of the Anime. Because Neji always believed in Destiny and other stuff.
But Naruto changed him with his words ( No Talk Jutsu ) in the Chunin exams. After that Neji changed a lot and became one of the most trustworthy friends for Naruto.

The next saddest moment on the list is the death of Haku and Zabuza.

Zabuza is one of the former members of 7 swordsmen of the mist and Haku is a student of Zabuza. But Haku is more likely a son to Zabuza. They are not on the bad side or the good side. They are just a team who hires and makes them work for them. And just like that, they were hired against Team Kakashi to stop the construction of the bridge.
The heartbreaking moment happens when Haku becomes a human shield to Zabuza to protect him and sacrifices his life. Initially, Zabuza doesn’t show any concern for Haku’s death. But soon after Naruto makes Zabuza realize how much he means to Haku. At that point, Kakuzu reveals how much he cares for Haku. And kills all the other men who see Haku as a failure with a knife holding with his bare mouth. Which is one of the greatest fights in Naruto. After killing everyone Zabuza requests Kakashi to lay down him beside Haku. So at least at the last breath, he could be beside him. And it was surely one of the saddest moments in Naruto.
