*** Episode 15: The climax of this episode involves a genial sailor, Ensign Fait, sacrificing his life to save the ''Nautilus'' both from a lethal gas leak and from being captured by the American battleships. What makes this moment truly heartwrenching is how Jean gradually becomes crushed when he vainly argues for the sailor to be rescued. Fait's death scene, incidentally, is truly terrifying, in which the sailor coughs uncontrollably to his death after screaming "Oh no! I don't wanna die! There's so many more things I wanted to do!" right after he told Jean that it was okay because he lived a good life. To have him completely contradict that right after, and in such a desperate manner, made this a huge Tearjerker. (Jean's breakdown is even worse: he pounds his fish hopelessly on the sealed hatch to the engine bunker, calling Fait's name until he finally collapses on the floor, wailing hysterically.)

*** Episode 35: Nadia tearfully reveals that she feels like a totally selfish, unloveable person and tries to commit suicide to escape from her fate. Instead, she is gently lowered to the ground by her Blue Water ala Sheeta's crystal in ''CastleInTheSky'' (although this is revealed, not seen). Her friends are all traumatized by what she has done (Grandis slaps Nadia across the face, while Sanson calls her out for "playing this tragic little game of yours!"), but Jean kindly tells Nadia that he doesn't care about who she thinks she is, or even about her origins as an Atlantean--he loves her anyway. Nadia is so moved that she tearfully apologizes (perhaps also for other unkind words/things she said/did to him too). Later, they discover that it's Nadia's birthday and have a wonderful celebration.

*** Episode 16: The entire episode involves a trip to the Atlantis graveyard, in which the heroic sailors are laid to rest. Here, Jean discovers that his father has been killed by Gargoyle. As if he hadn't already been brokenhearted, he becomes extremely depressed and even considers giving up inventing. Then, in a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, Nadia comes by and tries to comfort him; the episode ends with her weeping on his shoulder while they stand beside the funeral.

* The ending of ''NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater'' was the only anime scene that successfully made this troper cry. Although the series had a number of touching moments, the latter half of the final episode was one long bout of tear-jerking: [[spoiler: First off, Nadia's mind-controlled cyborg older brother overcomes his powerless metal body and sacrifices his life to save her. The villain [[DeathByFallingOver sends her boyfriend Jean tumbling to his death]], prompting the remaining spirits of the Atlanteans in the Blue Water to sacrifice the artifact to bring him back to life. During this, Nadia gets her first, last and only glimpse of her deceased mother, only realizing who she is at the very last moment before she and the others disappear.]] To top it off, [[spoiler: Red Noah is exploding and the crew of the Nautilus can't escape. They have an escape shuttle but someone needs to stay behind to blow their way out with the Nautilus' weaponry. Captain Nemo sneaks off to be that someone, shooting open the giant spaceship and yelling at her daughter to "LIVE!" The other characters escape, with Nadia never getting the chance to make up with her father.]] Then follows a heartfelt and (slightly {{Squick}}y) epilogue, explaining how the surviving cast lived happily ever after. The whole sequence was beautiful and heart-rending, not least because of the sad tune "Kokyou he..." (Going Home) playing.
** That is indeed true, but other episodes deserve mention:
