** Agreed on the last part. Although he's [[BaseBreaker a very polarizing character]], Touga arguably gets WORSE when [[spoiler: he doesn't tell Nanami that they really were related]], basically making her entire breakdown over a ''lie''. Actually, a lot of stuff about Nanami can be a tearjerker, simply because she gets it so bad towards the end of the series.

* To say nothing of the manga finale. "My name means 'calyx'... the cup that shields the young flower," and seeing Himemiya in [[spoiler: the boys' uniform]] were both the limit.

* The lyrics to the opening song, when translated, have a heartbreaking connection towards the final episode:
-->'''Gonna take who I've been till now, and find the strength to throw it all away. Strip down to nothing and become like a rose petal, blowing free. And if the two of us are ever torn apart, I swear that, I will change the world.''

* This trooper finds [[spoiler: Mikage/Nemuro's]] backstory and duel in episodes 22&23 to be pretty gut-wrenching, since [[spoiler: Nemuro went nuts out of desperation for Tokiko's love, and in the end Mikage is just dismissed and forgotten about, with no hope for a happy ending.]]

* Wakaba's [[spoiler:duel]] (pictured). Just... Wakaba's [[spoiler:duel]]. Especially when [[spoiler: Utena can't bring herself to pull her sword from Anthy's body and raise it against Wakaba while she, having completely snapped, chases after Utena while screaming about how everyone looks down at her and how Anthy stole Saionji's love for her.]] Poor, ''poor'' [[spoiler: Wakaba]]. The depressing duel theme doesn't help, either. And ''then'' the episode ends with her coming back to find [[spoiler: that Saionji isn't there anymore]].

** Before that got this troper. [[spoiler: Seeing Utena gravely wounded, unable to get up, and utterly helpless as she watches her friend get stabbed by a million swords, begging and crying for her brother to save her, while the background music is mourning the meaninglessness of life, and Dios telling her she did pretty well "for a girl"]] was nearly UNBEARABLE. But then there were tears ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome of a much more triumphant kind]]'' [[spoiler: when she got up]].

* Utena losing her first duel against Touga, the destruction of everything Utena thought she knew about him and Anthy and the accompanying HeroicBSOD made [[SomePoorSod this troper]] start welling up. And start wanting to beat Touga into pulp.

* Seeing Shiori in her room, broken after [[spoiler: Ruka loses the duel against Utena and cans her in front of the entire school.]] Despite the fact that Shiori is [[TheScrappy an incredibly unpopular character in the fandom]], there is something absolutely ''heartbreaking'' about someone being [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown kicked when they're down]], especially given that her self-esteem is so crushingly low to begin with. And as if the humiliation of being dumped publicly wasn't enough, the wound is only salted further when Juri swallows her pride and visits Shiori. Most fans only see this through Juri's perspective and consider Shiori to be harsh needlessly, but in truth, Juri is doing exactly what Shiori ''[[DontYouDarePityMe doesn't]]'' want her to do. Not to mention that it's Shiori's hand on the knob desperately trying to open the door.
