*** The real tear jerker is that had [[spoiler: Tai]] not been captured by the Locust, he undoubtably would have survived the entire trilogy, perhaps into ''Gears 4'' as well. He could've been a CoolOldGuy philosopher who would've been able to pass down his ideas and philosophies to the remaining humans, inspiring mental fortitude within them to help deal with the ridiculously hard future they have ahead of them.

** If all the Tomato plants in the green house are destroyed, Marcus flips out. Saying the seeds came from the tomatoes Dom had grown. Marcus was growing his late best friends plants. Triggering this dialogue means he just watched them get wrecked in front of him.

* ''Gears of War 4'' hits you with a surprising one right out the gate. Humanity is commemorating all the conflict and sacrifice that was suffered to achieve the peace they now thrive in, and you (the player) are tasked with partaking in the flashbacks that accompany this. We see several familiar faces, and get ready to kick ass as one of your favorite characters... [[spoiler: only to be planted firmly in the boots of a faceless grunt, and you struggle through some of the most intense and pivotal moments in the series as a generic Gear. [[ADeathInTheLimelight And then you die]]. In the first segment, your character is wiped out by a mortar round while dragging a wounded comrade, within sight of safety. During E-day, you find a ''Hammer of Dawn'' while severely outgunned, only for it to go off-line seconds before you could have survived. Finally, you play as a medic at Anvil Gate, who was never even meant to fight, as literally hundreds of Locust march relentlessly toward you, and [[{{Retirony}} die seconds before the whole Locust Horde is wiped out]] by Delta Squad's actions at the end of ''Gears 3''. You never see their faces. You never learn their names. They changed the course of history, but will never be remembered as anything more than one of a thousand others who also fell that day]].

For all of the general over-the-top nature of the franchise, this series is not without [[{{Teajerker}} its sad moments]].

* The ending to ''Gears 4'' has a major one with [[spoiler:JD and the others finally finding Reyna, only she's [[FateWorseThanDeath connected to the hive]], and that cutting her loose will kill her. Reyna begs Kait to finish her off, and she tearfully does so. Gets even worse when Kait realizes that Marcus knew about Reyna's fate the whole time, thanks to having been connected via podding. Although even he admits: "I didn't know we'd find ''this''."]]
