* The ending to Etna mode from the PSP/DS port is another contender. This troper has to choke back tears ''every single time'' he watches it. [[spoiler:When Etna's memories finally return, she realizes that her big promise to Krichevskoy was to watch over Laharl and she breaks down realizing that she failed to keep her promise. Sure, we find out that was Laharl was [[HeavySleeper alive all along]], but it's still a heart-wrenching scene.]]

* In the last level of Chapter 4, you have to defeat all enemies without attacking Usalia, who is in a beast mode due to not eating curry. If you defeat her, she ends up dying, and it breaks Killia's spirit so much that he quits the Rebel Army, which ends up falling apart without him, leaving [[TheBadGuyWins Void Dark to rule the Netherworlds unopposed forever]].

* Usalia's entire backstory is this; Majorita [[spoiler: enslaves her Netherworld and tortures the inhabitants just for kicks. She also curses Usalia so she needs to eat curry, a food she hates, or she'll turn into a rabid monster before dying. She even admits to acting like a brat about it and feels as if she caused her parents and people to hate her because she ran away and told her parents that the sweet curry they made was disgusting (even though she loved it)...and this ends up being the last thing she says to her parents before Majorita murders them for no reason at all.]]
* [[spoiler: Majorita's]] death. Yes, the [[spoiler: third in command big bad that kills people and uses their corpses to continue killing; who outright tortured Usalia and murdered her parents. The evil witch that she is...will illicit tears from you when Void Dark reveals he was just using her and kills her in cold blood after stealing her Overload.]] During the ending it's even revealed [[spoiler: that the restored Toto Bunny has become the utopia for peaceful demons that Majorita wanted to build all along; just hammering that last tear jerking nail home.]]
** On the positive side [[spoiler: in a post-ending story you find out she revived herself and now is forced to do nice things for Usalia; the person who hates her the most.]]

* Mao's Japanese voice actor, HiromiHirata, can make him go from crazy Mad Scientist to walking TearJerker at a drop of a hat, especially in Episode 4 when you face [[spoiler:the Maos who says Dad]]. [[http://in.youtube.com/watch?v=MNZMCdO3KAs&t=4m48s It's hard not to tear up]] when you can hear the pain in Mao's voice. And then you actually have to ''fight'' them with all their voices [[spoiler:desperately calling out to Mao's dad.]]

* Episode 8, the Red Moon episode, was one of the most heart-wrenching sequences in all of video games. With "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFKmtgGjM8A Sorrowful Angel]]" as the main battle music in this chapter, a piece mainly used in emotionally tense scenes, this foreshadows TearJerker. [[spoiler:It revolves around the night of the Red Moon, when the Prinnies who have redeemed themselves are allowed to reincarnate at last. Not only do the Prinnies sing a haunting song called, simply, "Red Moon", but it is revealed that the red "Big Sis Prinny" is Laharl's mother in Prinny form, and now she too is allowed to reincarnate, which leads to some truly touching emotional moments involving Laharl ("But, if we are destined to part again, wouldn't it be better to watch from afar and leave without a single word?"). This chapter pretty much marks Laharl's [[CharacterDevelopment transition]] from JerkAss to JerkWithAHeartOfGold.]]

** In one ending, [[spoiler:Sicily (Revealed to actually be Laharl's biological sister) [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices her life to protect her brother]]. [[HisStoryRepeatsItself Remember that his mother's sacrificed herself to save Laharl from his disease and that in the first game, he nearly lost Flonne after she allowed herself to be punished by Lamington in order to prevent her friends from suffering the same fate.]] [[http://youtu.be/v0XggB-PQ2I?t=1m24s His heart wrenching reaction should come as no surprise.]]]]
