* This trope was the origin story for the 1980s doll line ''RosePetalPlace''. The resident family of a Victorian-style house moved away, and the little girl took one last stroll through its garden, weeping, before they left. Her tears changed some of the flowers into little maidens, and their houses, cars, etc. were similarly transformed toys and gardening implements. Each doll/accessory was thus marked with a "crystal" tear. Apparently, the magic was neutral, because it also transformed a spider into Nastina, Rose-Petal's ArchEnemy. When Nastina killed her in the first of two animated TV specials by locking her in a room with almost no light (deadly for a flower woman), the tears of Rose-Petal's friends landed on her crystal, bringing her back to life. They found her because she managed to get a teensy bit of light shining on her crystal and the resultant glare was noticed by a passing butterfly; in the second special, Rose-Petal uses this glare to avoid being literally mowed down by Nastina.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesFromTheBorderlands'', Rhys tries to shed tears onto the face of a dying comrade. But although the scene is a genuine TearJerker, this trope becomes a DeconstructiveParody, creating momentary MoodWhiplash.
-->'''Dying Person:''' What are you doing?\\
'''Rhys:''' There are all these stories where... where someone's tears heal people. I really feel like that's a thing.\\
'''Dying Person:''' Well, this isn't one of those stories.

* The angelic realm of Elysium in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is full of hoarded Angel Tears, which have the power to cure the pure of heart of even otherwise uncurable debuffs and melt any demons [[TooDumbToLive dumb enough]] to drink them.
** There's even a skill that grants the ability to ''create'' Angel Tears through suffering, but it's universally regarded as the single [[SelfImposedChallenge worst skill choice]] in the entire game.

* In the fifth issue of the BOOM! Studio's ''ComicBook/DarkwingDuck'' comics, After Darkwing sadly apologized to the brainwashed Morgana for leaving her to keep her safe and to live a normal life, his single tear dropped onto her beak and it broke the brainwashing curse on her.

** Also [[InvokedTrope invoked]] in episode 4 of ''Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger'', where Yumeria/[=AkibaYellow=] cries so that her tears can snap a supposedly brainwashed [=AkibaBlue=] out of her evil trance. There's just one problem: her helmet prevents her tears from working.
