* Ryu Kumon's backstory in ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'', due mostly to MoodWhiplash: [[spoiler:This is a series where no one dies and we don't even see death in the past, but he saw his father accidently kill himself and destroy his house ''when he was six'']]

Added DiffLines:

** What makes the scene powerful, beyond any reasonings or lack thereof behind it, is the absolutely '''perfect''' pacing. Akane slaps Ranma and tearfully says she won't try helping him anymore and then turns away from him (as a sad violin tune is heard in the background, if you're watching the anime), Ranma realizes that she ''means'' what she said this time and tries to make amends, Ryoga believes he's running away attacks with his bandanna and Ranma kicks it aside before trying to talk to Akane for the second time. Akane then turns while repeating that she's not gonna give him a hand ever again -- and '''SWISH'''', the haircut comes. Then Akane's cut hair falls to the ground...

** Somewhat later, he sits with her in his arms and tells her what a stupid girl she is for interfering like that. Then he [[{{Beat}} pauses]] and ''punches himself in the face'', because that's what she'd have done at that point in the conversation. It's... well, tearjerking.

* Akane's getting her CloseCallHaircut might be a little hard to see this way, given that it was her own temper-tantrums that played a role in it happening, but it's obvious that it was absolutely devastating. That hair was the best symbol she had of her truest desire, the work of years and her only sign of hope that one day, [[MayDecemberRomance Dr. Tofu might return her feelings]]. In the blink of an eye it's all reduced to ashes, her heart totally crushed. Even in-universe, everyone treats this as absolutely devastating for her.

* Ryu Kumon's backstory in ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'', due mostly to MoodWhiplash: [[spoiler:This is a series where pretty much no one ever died, and we don't even see any other death in the past, but he saw his father accidently kill himself and destroy his house ''when he was six'']]
* The final two episodes of the anime. It just sums up Ranma's life, caught between his sense of honour, his curse, and Genma's [[JerkAss jerkassery]].

* The final two episodes of the anime has this troper in tears from start to finish. It just sums up Ranma's life, caught between his sense of honour, his curse, and Genma's [[JerkAss jerkassery]].

* Another primarily in-universe tear-jerker is Mousse's dramatic speech in his return story about how he has loved [[HotAmazon Shampoo]] all his life and tried over and over to make her accept his feelings, eternally being rejected. The entire audience bursts into tears over this and even Ranma, who Mousse was just trying to kill (and who almost had his fiancee turned into a duck by Mousse), notes that this story makes him feel sorry for Mousse.

* The moment when Ranma sees [[spoiler: Akane [[DisneyDeath die]] near the end of the manga.]] Ranma freezes right before shutting down, as if he can't comprehend what just happened. And when his life is threatened afterwards, it doesn't seem to matter. He's completely uncaring about whether he'll live or die. Even when Ranma's out of danger, he, unable to cope, does nothing but sit there and stare at her old clothing. It isn't until they take that away, that he reacts violently and breaks down. Even if you hate [[spoiler: Akane Tendo]]'s guts, Ranma's reaction to it all is just ''heartbreaking.''
