A character cries. It is not pretty. It tends to be ''loud''. Expect the character to, afterwards, need to blow his nose and have red, puffy eyes. [[YourMakeupIsRunning If any make-up is involved, expect it to run -- badly.]]

* Website/GoAnimate: [[WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer Elena Marquez]] in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM1c8XZgzcw&list=PLeOWqjZblxGU5IVfok7glsvIwJg0-2XJF&index=9 Boris' twin: episode 9]] when she finds out that [[WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}} Boris]] has apparently been killing people. It doesn't sound like the typical "waaaaaaaaa-ah, it sounds like an actual woman crying.

* In the ''Anime/{{Trigun}}'' anime, when Vash wakes up after [[spoiler: being forced to kill Legato after a series-long vow of pacifism]] the audience doesn't get to see much of him actually crying but they do get to hear some uncomfortably anguished wailing.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/Hey Arnold'', Helga Pataki's older sister Olga is infamous for this. She does it in every single episode where she appears, and often over inconsequential things like [[TheBGrade getting a B+ on an otherwise perfect report card.]] Making it worse, her thick black mascara always runs.
**Helga may have some of this as well, though hers is not nearly as frequent or profuse as Olga's. See episodes like "The Subway," when she thinks, quote, "We're all gonna starve to death and get eaten by rats!"
**Minus the runny makeup, Harold sometimes experiences this. It's often in the midst of one of his meltdowns that begin with, [[CatchPhrase "AHHHH! MOMMY!"]] In "Weighing Harold," he became so upset at being called fat that he wept on Arnold's shoulder, sniffling and ''drooling.''

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ''Literature/ConanTheBarbarian'' story "Literature/JewelsOfGwahlur" not exactly wise for an imposter goddess.

* Another famous operatic tenor example is Canio in Theatre/{{Pagliacci}}, at the end of his iconic aria "Vesti la giubba." The sobbing isn't called for in the libretto, but it's a firm tradition, and depending on the singer it can be [[LargeHam very]] undignified. Thanks to {{Pop Cultural Osmosis}} from film, TV and cartoons, an inelegantly blubbering tenor in a clown suit is probably the main image most people associate with this opera.

* ''Film/MoulinRouge'''s Christian does this when [[spoiler: Satine dies]]. {{YMMV}}, but because it sounds almost like he's laughing hysterically, [[{{Narm}} it potentially kills the mood]]. Justified (perhaps) in the director's commentary where it's suggested that only a completely devastated person cries like that, because whether or not they sound silly is the ''last'' thing they're concerned about.

* At the end of ''Film/SchindlersList'', Oskar Schindler does this as he says that he could have saved more Jews if he had sold his belongings (the blubbering grows from the repeated phrase "I could've gotten more...")
** Which, if you're aware of the hardship that was a constant feature of his life after the fall of the Third Reich, is almost too heartbreaking to stand.
