* ''Film/ShinGodzilla'' has Shin Godzilla's VillainSong "Who Will Know (Tragedy)", mournful theme from Godzilla's perspective where the beast is torn between succumbing to his hopelessness and a drive to push forward and survive if only for a little while longer.

*** The iconic destruction of Tokyo is both [[NightmareFuel horrifying]] and profoundly sad. Consider, for a moment, that Godzilla turns the city into a "sea of flames", and a similar event had actually happened just a decade prior to the film's release; those who had survived the firebombing of Tokyo and saw ''Gojira'' in theaters would've felt very... uh...

* TwoWords: "Goodbye, Yoshido." ([[spoiler:This is what Kiryu (aka the 3rd [=MechaGodzilla=]) says to one of the main characters right before sacrificing himself to save Godzilla from death at the end of ''Film/GodzillaTokyoSOS''.]])

** The Manga adaptation of the film heartrendingly elaborates further:
--> "And so, at last, Godzilla was sent back into the belly of the earth. The news flashed around the world—'Godzilla is dead,’ and many, no doubt, slept easier after that. But to those of us who stood on the slopes of Mt. Mihara that day and watched as Godzilla was slowly buried beneath the flood of molten rock, his cries did not sound like those of a dying beast. Rather, they conveyed a sense of sadness—a regret that his freedom should be so brief. For all the destruction he caused, Godzilla acted only according to his instincts. In that sense, he is beyond good and evil as we would define it. And I believe all those who were witness to Godzilla’s entombment realized this fact, and, to some extent, were also saddened. To this day, I can still hear the echo of those screams. But in them I now hear something else—a deeper note beyond the sadness… I hear a threat. A threat that one day, as civilization revels in its own advances—even as it destroys the balance of the world—Godzilla may again rise up from the depths and challenge mankind for possession of the world. And my deepest fear is that man, in his arrogance, will not heed the reality of that threat—that Godzilla will not rest in peace."

* Even the Americanized version of Godzilla includes a few. The whole reason Steve Martin was in Japan to begin with was because he was on his way to Cairo, and decided to stay a few days because e wanted to spend time with his college friend, Dr. Serizawa. This decision leads him to witness untold death and destruction. And the ending, as he watches his friend Dr. Serizawa sacrifice himself, he does so with a glazed, empty look in his eyes. It's impossible to tell if it's because of the head injury he received, or because he's in the beginning stages of PTSD.

* Godzilla Junior was just a cute, lovable baby during the events of ''Film/GodzillaVsMechagodzillaII'', being raised by a kindly biologist named Azusa Gozo. It's established that he imprinted on her while in his egg and saw her as his mother. At the end, Azusa tearfully knows she can't care for him anymore and tries to get him to go with Godzilla. When she attempts to board the escape chopper, Junior tugged on her coat like a scared puppy and didn't want her to leave. After she embraces the infant and tells him they have to part ways, you can see Junior weeping. It's possibly the first time in the franchise we've ever seen a kaiju visibly cry.

**[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1aZYf48aQQ The Love theme]] which comes in the credits certainly makes the whole thing much more sadder, particularly with its beautiful, yet mournful lyrics.
