* Farmer Brun's Missing Son. Elderly Farmer Brun asks you to look for his son, Nathan, who went to investigate missing livestock. You go to look for him in the Ankheg's Nest and after fighting your way through Ankhegs, you find his body. You can't take him to get resurrected, he's gone for good. You take him back to his father, who is heartbroken, as he lost not only his son, but will lose his land as well, as he is now too feeble to work. That is unless you choose to give him 100 gold pieces to help him get by. Still, he lost his only son, and will be alone.

* ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate II]]''. [[spoiler: Yoshimo's death. The fact that he's the only proper thief in the game is also sad.]]
** Jon Irenicus's speech to [[spoiler: Ellesime]] at the Tree of Life helped to humanise and add tragedy to a character who up until that point had been an unrepentant, sadistic MagnificentBastard.

** The ending WhereAreTheyNow stories for party members are often quite TearJerker-y. At least, Minsc's "they're together still, up among the stars where hamsters are giants and men become legend". Viconia's [[spoiler:romanced ending where her past finally catches up with her and she is denied even the experience of seeing her son grow up by the ever-scheming Lolth and her followers]] is also liable to make your eyes water.
*** Kelsey's romance mod can make players tear up every time. Not helped by the almost sobbing of the voice actor.
**** Kelsey. Tree Of Life. "So let me just say this. I love you. I need you. And I am with you until the end." It's voiced. Cue waterworks!

** Even worse, when it's the other original romance options doing these things, the only things voiced are [[spoiler:the illusions of their loved ones]], the victim does not have voice acting. Aerie? Her whole breakdown is ''voiced'', so you get to hear Creator/KathSoucie making her sound completely desperate and in anguish, and ''goddammit it was that effective'' to show the trope BreakTheCutie.

** Speaking of Saradush, delving into Yaga-Shura's backstory is something of a tear jerker all of its own; not because it makes him any less of a monster - if anything it just makes him worse - but meeting his adoptive mother Nyalee is a pretty tragic experience. She explains to you that in life, she was a priestess of Bhaal who adopted Yaga-Shura in infancy. Although Bhaal would have wanted her to kill him as a baby, she raised him as best she could and even helped him achieve invulnerability by cutting his own heart out and placing it in a SoulJar. He then did the same to her to prevent her from undoing her work; this comes back to bite him on the ass in a big, big way when her shade is only too happy to help you render him vulnerable in exchange for the return of her own. The tissue-wiping starts when she restores her own heart and remembers her emotions, including her lost love for the giant she raised as if he came from her own womb...
-->"''And... there. It be done, a simple thing, it is. The boy's heart is cold, now. As... as cold as his mother's old heart... You... you will hurts my boy, won't you? No... [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone no, what has Nyalee done?!]] My poor boy, the spawn-child will hurts him! Nyalee must stops him/her!! Come, spirits of the glade! Come, woodsies of the forest!! We... [[MamaBear we must protects my boy! My precious Yaga-Shura!!]]''"

* This troper was horrified when the Master Wraith in ''Throne of Bhaal'' [[BreakTheCutie teared down]] Aerie.

To wit: [[spoiler:he conjured an image of her mother, who proceeds to blame her for getting the latter killed by more sadistic slavers, all because Aerie ''dared'' to go missing from her]]. Aerie may be a little too whiny for her own good, but on the other hand, hearing her completely break down sobbing and begging it to stop is just too much.

* Many Bhaalspawns in Saradush don't want anything to do with their heritage and just want to go on about their lives while being percecuted wherever they go. It's also heavily implied that Bhaalspawns will end up in the lower planes when they die, regardless of alignment and by all accounts, [[spoiler: they all died when Saradush was razed.]]

* Jaheira finding [[spoiler: Khalid's corpse]] at the beginning of Baldur's gate 2. This is the first time the rather stoic Jaheira breaks down crying. And even if you consider him TheScrappy, it's rather hard to not break down.
