* At the very beginning of the first game where [[spoiler:after fighting a posessed Giro, he sacrifices himself to allow Model Z to lend you its power in order to survive.]] And in the implied backstory, [[spoiler:Ciel is murdered by Serpent (who was supposedly her ally) during an expedition to find the biometals.]]
!MegaManBattleNetwork
* The most poignant is the ending of [=BN3=], where everyone thinks [=MegaMan=] is gone for good. We see Lan four months later, still heartbroken but moving on with his life. Only after the credits does Lan's dad find a way to save [=MegaMan=].
** The ending is made worse with FridgeLogic in that after Lan wakes up post-credits, ''Mega Man doesn't speak''. The poor kid could've dreamed he was talking to him...
!MegaManStarForce
* The ending to ''Star Force 3'' was this combined with a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}. Geo's beaten the big bad twice, the second in such a way that it will never return. Except...by doing so he has sentenced himself to death in space, since fighting Meteor G generated so much noise that the rocket - the one that Geo ''needed'' to be able to get to and from the Earth and the Meteor - has completely failed. Not only that, but unlike the first game with a similar scenario, there's no capsule for Geo to ride off in, no capsule which his friends could send a signal for it to track back to Earth - nothing. And then you see everyone in the WAZA HQ realising this. But then, a message is sent to everyone's Hunter. The sender? Kelvin - Geo's dad. {{Ho|tMom}}pe proceeds to break down into tears as she hears her husband's voice for the first time in three years. But that's not where it ends, far from it. You see the reason Kelvin has sent out this message - and to the entire world even - is to ask them, plead with them - no - '''beg''' them to please help his son who is now floating in space, protected only by a small field of EM waves that won't last long. He asks them both as a human being and as a father, to help the boy who saved their lives. Now if you know the Mega Man series, you know that it puts a lot of effort into proving just how HumansAreBastards, so you really don't expect much...
** The entire world gets to work, distributing power to WAZA, as well as creating a Purpose signal so strong, that it literally becomes ''Purpose wave'' which begins to tug at the EM waves surrounding Geo, and bringing him home. One small problem though - it seems that Omega-Xis and Kelvin aren't gonna be able to come with him, setting it up to be a BittersweetEnding. And during the credits we're treated to drawings depicting how Geo's life continued once he came back to Earth. However after the credits you see that though two weeks have passed, Geo has been hiding his sadness over his loss of both his best friend and his Father for a second time. Then suddenly, we see a blue shooting star crash down towards him, revealing that not only is Omega-Xis fine, but he's brought someone with him. Cut to the Stelar household where Hope has just finished making dinner, to find her son walk through the front door with not only everyone's favourite alien - but with the man she loves. Cue the HappilyEverAfter.
