** Another pair of, this time men, is found at the end of Daud's base. They seem to be good friends. One of them has gone blind from the plague and thinks he is in a dark basement. He tells his buddy that others survived the plague to which he responds that it's "one in a thousand, ten thousand probably". The man replies that that's still a chance and goes on to say all the things he will do when he recovers. The entire time he is disparately trying to convince himself that he will live, though it is obvious that he is one step away from being a weeper. The entire time, his buddy knows that he is also infected and is just cradling him in his arms. Dear God man. They don't even pay attention to you as you pass and it feels heartless just to kill them, because what if they can survive? One in ten thousand is still a chance...
*** And then the blind one dies and his buddy asks you why you're here if you're not contaminated... If you leave and come back to him a little later, you'll see that he dragged himself and his dead friend to beds and started sleeping.

* At some point in the game, you find two male survivors, obviously close friends. One is slowly dying in the other's arms (the other is also dying but at an earlier stage), being dragged out of the mound of corpses [[spoiler: that the city watch are dumping in the Flooded District]]. The dying man genuinely thinks he's being brought to a hospital and the City Watch will help him, promising to 'do things right' when he gets better. His blind optimism is heartbreaking considering the ForegoneConclusion, and his friend trying to let him down gently doesn't help.

* [[spoiler: Despite his betrayal, Teague Martin's last words before committing suicide are still pretty depressing]]

*During a low chaos play through, some of Cecilia's dialogue implies that [[spoiler: Martin and Pendleton felt guilty and remorseful about having the other residents of the Hounds Pitt Pub executed.]]
-->'''Cecilia''': "Pendleton kept apologizing. Martin was drinking and seemed sad."

* If you fail to save Captain Curnow, Callista will comment about how much she will miss her uncle, noting that he was good man, better than her own father. Later, you get to listen to her reminiscing about their family (all dead except the two of them) and how much of a hero he was to them. Considering that Curnow is one of the few uncorrupted men who joined the Watch to help people, not saving him is a choice not many make during their playthroughs.

* ''Everything'' Cecelia says. Not only is the text itself extremly sad, what with her saying that she fully expect to be the first one to be eliminated or fired when the Conspiracy disband, but it's her ''resigned'' tone that makes it truly tear jerking.

* In the epilogue of the main game (at least in the Low Chaos ending), the Outsider says that when you die decades later, Emily lays you to rest in Jessamine's tomb, the implication being that she was the true love of Corvo's life. And he lost her tragically young.

* If you thought Daud deserved his fate at the end of the main game, your opinion will be changed after playing Brigmore Witches on Low Chaos. Almost every moment during the lengthy ending is a tear jerker for Daud.

* More than half of The Heart's lines fall under this heading, especially when the sheer misery of the setting's inhabitants begins filtering through. In these lines, almost every single unnamed NPC ends up getting painted as TheWoobie: male survivors have lost everything to the flood and the plague, are forced to perform backbreaking work that their superiors will never be satisfied with and driven to steal from their fellow workers just to get by; female survivors have to starve themselves just to make sure their children are fed, and are often driven to alcoholism; the servants are horribly mistreated, deep in debt, worried that the other servants don't like them, and likely to be killed by weepers; the prostitutes are little more than slaves, taken from broken homes, shipped into the Golden Cat under the belief that they'd be working in a factory, terrorized by the Madame and in danger of catching the plague from their clients... even brutal enemies like the members of the Bottle Street Gang and the City Watch have a few lines that make them genuinely pitiable. Most saddening of all is the fact that many [=NPCs=] are revealed to be contemplating suicide in some way - [[CrapsackWorld and for good reason.]]

The Weepers aren't much better, since they fell to the plague. The Heart will mention that one of them may have gotten the plague while attending to their children, for example.

*** And then the blind one dies and his buddy asks you why you're here if you're not contaminated... If you leave and come back to him a little later, you'll see that he dragged himself and his dead friend to beds and started sleeping... This Troper took his inconscious body in the building where Blake's group of survivors is located so that he can flee with them when he wakes up.
