* The opening scenes. Jake's brother Tom, being cremated and his position and avatar being left to Jake.
* Quaritch makes a speech about safety on Pandora, starting off heartwarming with a promise to try to bring everybody home alive. Then it turns into a tearjerker when he confesses that he will not succeed.



* Also when Trudy's gunship was shot down.
* When Jake is formally adopted into the Omaticaya, we see Grace looking on, doing her damndest not to cry.

** Also, in the Extended Cut, The Na'vi school. We first see it being used as storage after being abandoned, and after Jake sees some bullet holes in a blackboard and asks Grace, she snappily changes the subject. Later on, after Jake and Grace have grown closer, she tells him exactly what happened. Sylwanin (Neytiri's sister) and a group of young hunters attacked an RDA bulldozer and ran to the school. When the troopers arrived, they not only killed Sylwanin right in front of Neytiri, but also many of the students. Grace's "I got ''most'' of the children out" line really drives it home.

*** BilingualBonus for Eytukan's death. Throughout the film Neytiri has calls him "Sempul", which means "Father". But in this scene she says "Sempu". She's calling him Daddy.

* TearJerker:
** Several, most notably [[spoiler: the destruction of Hometree, Grace's death, and Neytiri's father's death]].
*** [[spoiler: The Hometree destruction]] was especially tearjerking for this fact: Ever see hundreds of people break down crying before? No?
** Also when [[spoiler: Trudy's gunship was shot down,]] when [[spoiler: Neytiri saved Jake from suffocating,]] and [[spoiler: when Jake permanently enters his Avatar body at the end.]]
** When Jake is formally adopted into the Omaticaya, we see Grace looking on, doing her damndest not to cry.
** [[spoiler: Tsu'tey's death, especially in the extended cut. "He was my last shadow."]]
** [[spoiler: The Na'vi school in the extended cut. We first see it being used as storage after being abandoned, and after Jake sees some bullet holes in a blackboard and asks Grace, she snappily changes the subject. Later on, after Jake and Grace have grown closer, she tells him exactly what happened. Sylwanin (Neytiri's sister) and a group of young hunters attacked an RDA bulldozer and ran to the school, thinking Grace could protect them. When the troopers arrived, they not only killed Sylwanin right in front of Neytiri, but also many of the students. Grace's "I got ''most'' of the children out" line really drives it home.]]
** The opening shot
** [[spoiler: Neytiri holding human Jake]]
** The entire scene at the Tree of Voices
** Jake's first flight
** Selfridge finally realizing that he made a mistake while [[spoiler: watching the destruction of Hometree.]] But it's too late.
