*** Seeing the ''Brontosaurus'', ''Diplodocus''', and '''Stegosaurus''' drowning in the mud, struggling to get out, while appearing to roar out for help. One particular sauropod doesn't move, apparently giving up as it knows it's futile; a ''Ceratosaurus'' stands in front of it, the sauropod moves its head away from the threatening scavenger to [[SkywardScream roar to the sky in agony]].

* Also, ''Firebird'', somewhat, if you have a soft spot for nature.
** The ending itself is so awe-inspiring it always brings this troper to tears, though that is as much TearsOfJoy as this trope, when the sprite's sorrow and all the destruction turn into some of the most beautiful animation ever made which seems to palpably explode with celebration and wonder.
* The baby whale who gets lost in the ''Pines Of Rome'' sequence
* The Steadfast Tin Soldier's ordeal.
* Most of the "story" pieces follow this structure: happy beginning, sad middle, happy end.
* The "Firebird Suite" sequence in ''Disney/{{Fantasia}} 2000'' - the Firebird's rampage is one of the most horrific scenes in Disney, and the ashen Sprite is a further blow...then the whole thing turns around as the forest is restored better than before (all accompanied by the '''glorious''' Stravinsky ballet music, natch).
** The sprite restoring the beautiful tree that she had made after it was destroyed. And the ''soaring'' music through the whole end sequence.
* Also from Fantasia 2000, the "Pomp and Circumstance" sequence about Donald Duck on Noah's Ark has a brief shot of a unicorn, dragon and gryphon pointing and laughing at all the other animals getting on the ark. The knowledge that those creatures were going to drown and never be seen again (shades of The Unicorn by Shel Silverstein) not only made me tear up, but deeply upset my then-six-year-old niece.
** Both Donald and Daisy fail to witness each other get on the Ark before the flood sweeps away their home, so they believe their true love to be gone forever. Sure, [[ForegoneConclusion they get back together in the end]], but the idea of feeling so alone amidst ''a boat full of millions of couples'' is heartbreaking, and the parallels with AnAmericanTail.
** Another standout would be Donald trying to release the dove. The minute Donald turns his back the dove goes back to his mate, but Donald then grabs the dove and tosses him off the ark. The dove's mate then breaks down in tears, and you can tell from the look on Don's face that he [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone immediately felt guilty about it]].
** Just before they reunite, both Donald and Daisy have moments that yard on the heartstrings awfully hard. As Noah's family leaves the ark and Noah pats Donald on the head for a job well done, Donald pulls out the picture of him and Daisy and hangs his head in sorrow. Meanwhile, Daisy leaves the ark, shoulders slumped in grief, and reaches for her pendant, the last keepsake she has of Donald, only to discover it has (once again) come off of its string. She has a look of abject terror on her face as she frantically begins searching the ground for it and anyone who's ever realised they just lost something very dear to them will know exactly how she feels at that moment. Not helping matters is that while this is going on, ''Pomp and Circumstance'' is reaching its apex with a beautiful singing solo cutting away to a dramatic bell descent.
* The iceskating fantasy sequence in "Rhapsody in Blue".
** Pretty much everyone in that segment is a [[TheWoobie woobie]], but special mention goes to Duke, the construction worker who wistfully dreams of being a drummer; Rachel, the lonely little girl who wants to spend time with her parents; and poor Jobless Joe, broke, hungry, and desperate for work but unable to find any. Fortunately, things work out for all of them in the end.

* From the original, ''Ave Maria'': There's just something about this mix of soothing and comforting animation and music immediately following the utter terror that was Night On Bald Mountain (not to mention the general intensity of the rest of the film) that it's almost impossible not to get a little choked up.

** Before ''Ave Maria'', there was this bit of gloomy ending music in ''Night on Bald Mountain'' that almost had us in tears.
