* Occurs thrice in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'':
** Charles wipes a single tear from his cheek after he uncovers a happy memory from Erik's childhood involving the latter's mother with his telepathy. Despite living a much more comfortable and privileged life than his friend, the one beautiful thing that Charles never got to experience is a mother's warm affection.
** In the same scene, a visible tear falls down Erik's face because he didn't know he still carried that cherished memory of his mother.
** After [[spoiler:Charles gets shot]], he only sheds one noticeable tear which is partly because of [[spoiler:his injury]], but mostly because he is forced to tell Erik that [[spoiler:no, they really do not want the same thing, and knows that this realisation will push his friend away for good.]]

One reason for this is that it's difficult even for actors to cry on command, so filmmakers sometimes use an eyedropper to put liquid in the actor's eyes just before a crying scene. Of course, you can only squeeze so much water out before the next take, leading to this. Also shows up frequently in animation, because it's easier to animate. It's actually [[OlderThanTheyThink older than film]], though: Dante mentions it in the ''DivineComedy''.

** Also, The Sorrow. Though that's because he got SHOT in that eye thus likely causing the single tear but you know... Boss just squeezes out like 2 tears as well(though she probably could have cried more). Manly tears indeed.
** Averted with Otacon (though he's not the epitome of manliness) who bawls like a bawling thing at the drop of a hat.
