** And Harry's absolute ''anguish'' during this scene is heartbreaking. [[spoiler:After Sirius goes through the arch, the score starts playing over the scene so that you don't hear any of the character's voices. But then you see Harry stare at the arch in horror and say "No!" Then it cuts to him ''screaming'' in agony as Lupin tries to calm him down. You really do want to see Bellatrix get her comeuppance as she gleefully sings [[KickTheDog "I killed Sirius Black!"]]]]

* Molly's personal [[YourWorstNightmare boggart]] of seeing her husband and sons (and Harry) killed. It doubles as a dark CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming of sorts, as it's clear she thinks of Harry as her son, too.
** "''Crack''. Dead twins. ''Crack''. Dead Percy. ''Crack''. Dead Harry..." Not even in her absolute worst nightmare could Mrs. Weasley imagine [[spoiler:Fred and George being apart, even in death.]]
** And also afterwards when Harry goes upstairs and can't believe that less than an hour ago he was worrying about who had become prefect. That he had 'never felt more grown-up in his life', it's like it's just dawning on him how real the situation is and that people he cares about could die.
** Also, with some FridgeBrilliance: throughout the books (and especially in book 7), we see that Ron feels inadequate and unloved compared to his siblings and friends. But his is the first body that we see Molly's boggart turn into.

** Especially the line, "Neville looked at them as if daring them to laugh. Harry did not think he had ever seen anything less funny in his life."



* The final book reveals it to be a TearJerker for another reason, but in Order, Harry's BrokenPedestal moment with his father as a teenager is really sad. Throughout the book, he's full of emotional confusion and psychological trauma and feels that AdultsAreUseless and to see that his ideal image of his father is not true wounds him in a real way. Especially when he wonders if he really wanted to be like his father anymore, after being told by everyone who knew James. He eventually accepts it, much like people in life come to terms with flaws in their heroes or people who they look up to.

* The scene where Moody gives Harry a photo of the original Order of the Phoenix and describes how many of them died. It's pretty sad because all of the subjects are smiling and waving at the viewer, oblivious to the fact that this photo was probably the last time they were all together and alive.

* In the [=OotP=] film, the scene where Fred and George sit down to comfort a crying first year after he's been punished. They show him their hands and say, "See, it's not so bad. You can hardly see the scars." They aren't just good guys, they're good ''men'', protecting ''and'' comforting the weak when they need it.

\n* Following Sirius' death, Harry briefly considers that he may have come back as a ghost, and seeks out Nearly-Headless Nick to try and find out. Nick says he's been expecting Harry to approach him, as students who have experienced the death of a loved one often come to talk to him about it. Unfortunately, Nick is only a ghost and ultimately knows nothing more about death than he did when he was alive, knowing only that Sirius did not choose to become a ghost and instead passed on. While Harry's brief hope that he might see a form of Sirius again being quickly crushed is sad, the real sorrow comes from the great melancholy in Nick's lamentation of the feeble imitation of life he chose because he was afraid of death, and how he sometimes wishes he had chosen to move on. It's a poignant insight into a normally comedic side character, and the lonely nature of the ghosts in general.

* The scene I consider to be the most powerful was when the trio first try to recruit students to train against the dark arts. Everyone there still doesn't believe Harry about Voldemort's return, so Hermoine and Ron start [[RememberWhenYouBlewUpTheSun gloating about Harry's accomplishments]], but Harry points out that [[DontDoThisCoolThing he did all those things when he was about to die, and that he doesn't want anyone going through that]]. His candor about danger is what convinces everyone he's telling the truth.

--> He had known Percy for four years, stayed in his house during the summers, shared a tent with him during the Quidditch World Cup, even been awarded full marks by him in the second task of the Triwizard Tournament last year, yet now, Percy thought him unstable and possibly violent.

*** [[spoiler: And the worst part was that DanielRadcliffe wasn't miming that scream. The reason you don't hear any audio at that moment was because they ''cut it'' during post-production. Apparently, it was ''too'' agonizing.]]
