* One of the earliest examples was a flashback to Kurita's 10 grade year. Expecting many people to try out for the American football club he bought 100 cream puffs to share with others, when not ONE person came, he was forced to eat them all alone in the dark.
** The next year, Kurita also bought 100 cream puffs, only to accidentally fall asleep and wake up in the middle of the try outs with only the club's existing members in the club room. The next scene combines tear jerker with a crowning moment of heart warming when he realizes that dozens of people have actually come out, and they're all eating his cream puffs.

** Made worse by the fact that has Habashira breaks down we see flashbacks to Hiruma practising with all his friends...while Habishira threatens one of his own players with a knife and his [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend girlfriend]], Megu, stands around the corner looking very sad and dissapointed in him. [[http://www.mangareader.net/134-6885-21/eyeshield-21/chapter-110.html See for yourself]].
** Actually, we also see Hiruma threatening his own team with a GUN, showing that he really is not that different. Megu looks more sad and understanding than disappointing in him. The real difference is more the fact that sena&co are genuine nice guys, who ended up earning hiruma's respect and thus forged a true friendship whereas harahibara's teammates are just spineless delinquants. It thus gets even more tragic since it means that it was only luck that decided it. Hiruma was lucky enough to meet sena&co, Rui was not.
*** That panel wasn't a flashback. Megu is around the corner, listening to Habashira cry, and fighting off her own tears that he couldn't achieve his dream.

Added DiffLines:

** Monta telling Sena to not go comfort Yukimitsu as it will make it worse, you can see on Monta's face that he speaks from experiance, as he had to give up on his dream of being a baseball player.

Added DiffLines:

** Extra points to Monta and Sena. Not only did they purposely stage a conversation to make Yukimitsu feel better (and though he saw through it, it worked), but we got our first real look at Sena's CowardlyLion tendencies there. Sure, he was saying it out loud for Yukimitsu's sake, but the look on Sena's face screams that he ''meant it.''

* The flashbacks during the game against the USA, showing the fracturing and collapse of Agon and Hiruma's tentative friendship. Agon is left with this sense of having lost ''something'', even as his own sociopathy prevents him from being able to understand ''what''.

* Just as Unsui thinks his hard work has finally paid off, he's told that the scholarship award he'd always been aiming for was meant for his brother. The scene is made all the more heart breaking when he, in tears, declares he's going to do all he can to make his BROTHER the best, making it clear he no longer sees his own worth.

Even Agon, who pretty much nicknamed him shit, doesn't find it funny.
