* {{Enforced}} in ''WesternAnimation/ClerksTheAnimatedSeries''. The DVDCommentary explains that there was a particular animator on the Korean animation crew named Animator Han who would continually argue in favor of OcularGushing, on the theory that if one tear is funny, ''many'' tears must be [[UpToEleven that much funnier]]. The only way the writers were able to get him to tone it down was to instruct him to animate one, and [[ExactWords ONLY one]] tear.

* While it is hard to determine whether it is being PlayedForLaughs or entirely straight, ''Film/CryBaby'' features an example in the form of the eponymous main character. He explains to his love interest that his father was "The Alphabet Bomber" and that his mother was no better. He adds that after they were both executed, he decided to do something bad every so often in their memory. Lastly he states that he will cry for what he has to do but only one tear. He subverts this when the movie ends.

* Those hardened convicts with the single tear drop tattooed onto their face. The most hardened ones avert it, since generally each tear represents X number of years in prison. ThatOtherWiki says each tear represents a man they killed.
