* Vegeta cries in ''Anime/DragonballZ'' due to the fact that Frieza could vanquish him so easily after all he'd tried to turn the tables.Goku's vision during the fight sums it up nicely"I dreamt-- I yearned to be the one to avenge us, yet he battered and broke me just like he did the others. You cannot know the agony of that." Can be seen as DramaticIrony given that the ruthless most evil self-absorbed Saiyan AntiHero is begging Goku to empathize with the other Saiyans that tried and failed to defeat Frieza.

Different from BerserkerTears in the sense that the character isn't crying out of rage. See also VillainousBreakdown for the villain that does this. Often results in a TearJerker. Compare/Contrast ManlyTears, BerserkerTears, TearsOfFear.

* ''Fanfic/{{Quicken}}'': After Emma has told Taylor how she had to fight thugs and rapists, and even dig her way out of her own grave in order to survive... her best friend hugs her, and Emma bursts into tears.
-->I was stunned, unable to react, simply allowing myself to be held. My eyes grew hot and a low moan escaped my throat. I tried to stop myself, but I felt so tiredónot in body, but perhaps in spirit. I began bawling, putting my arms around Taylor, releasing myself to the tears. There was no dignity or restraint: it was the sort of crying an infant or a toddler might produce. I felt as though the tears would tear out gouges down my cheeks and I cried and cried. I donít think I had ever cried this hard before.

--->"I'm...sorry, Asuka." The feeling of sickening self-disgust rolling through him choked his words and a gloomy, heavy silence enveloped the room once again, broken intermittently only by the EKG's electronic heartbeat and his quiet sobbing.

** And after the FinalBattle, he cries when [[spoiler:Asuka is apparently dead.]]
