** And on top of that, because of that wish, although Usagi and her friends get brought back to life, they completely lose their memories of not only being Sailor Guardians, but also their memories of being friends with each other. In fact, it stays this way for ''2 months''. And as we see in the flashbacks in the ''Sailor Moon R'' movie, Usagi's friends all had pretty lonely and depressing lives before meeting Usagi. In other words, they end up having no friends for 2 months! It must've been pretty hard especially for Rei and Minako, who don't attend Usagi, Ami, and Makoto's (which she is a transfer student to) school.

*** And even worse, as the second season shows, Luna HAD the ability to restore the Guardians' memories, and yet, she NEVER tries to restore the friendship memories of Usagi and her friends, exacerbating the tear jerkiness even further, ending the season on a rather cruel twist.

* The very first episode of the season: Rei is the first target for her pure heart and, until Uranus and Neptune return her heart crystal, the other Inners are fully convinced that she's dead. Not only are the other girls ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Mamoru]]) powerless since they got caught before transforming, but Usagi had been BroughtDownToNormal after her brooch was damaged by the MonsterOfTheWeek. As Usagi watched Rei being stripped of her Crystal, she had flashbacks to a conversation that she and Rei had earlier, and since she couldn't do anything to save her, she was crying and begging for help for Rei...]]
* Episode 110 (Michiru and Haruka's [[spoiler: Talismans appear]], and the famous hands scene where Haruka angsts as she considers herself tainted, and Michiru comforts her. The second is made sadder because it's followed several scenes in which the saddened Inners recall how they've tried to talk to them to no avail.

** Although [[spoiler: Uranus and Neptune]] also could pull that off in episode 90. Which is tied with ''another'' TearJerker: [[spoiler: right before that, Rei had her Heart Crystal stolen and not only the other girls ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Mamoru]]) were powerless since they got caught before transforming, but Usagi had been BroughtDownToNormal after her brooch was damaged by the MonsterOfTheWeek. As Usagi watched Rei being stripped of her Crystal, she had flashbacks to a conversation that she and Rei had earlier, and since she couldn't do anything to save her, she was crying and begging for help for Rei...]] Then came [[spoiler: the BigDamnHeroes, the destruction of the monster and the girls being rescued]], but the TearJerker remained here and there.

* Third season climax: Hotaru's just overcome Mistress Nine and tranforms into Sailor Saturn. She explains to Sailor Moon that she is, indeed, the "Soldier of Destruction" that Uranus and Neptune feared, and calmy states that when she use her power, she will be destroyed. She then thanks them for everything, and goes off to battle Pharaoh 90. Sailor Moon is aghast, tries to power up into Super Sailor Moon--and her transformation fails because the Grail was Destroyed. She keeps trying, and each time she shouts "CRISIS MAKE-UP!" she sounds more and more desperate and pounds the pavement below her in frustration until her fist begins bleeding. Just thinking about Sailor Moon on all fours, sobbing "Why?"... Even Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune, who until this moment were annoying and infuriating with Sailor Moon's interference, felt sorry for her. At the brink of hysterics she tries one last time and the powers of the other Senshi combine and her pure heart crystal forces itself out of her body to allow her to transform. When finished her eyes are blank with tears streaming down her face and goes to join Sailor Saturn in battle.

* Episode 73 featured the Inner Senshi [[spoiler: being abducted by Rubeus as they tried to protect Chibi-Usa]]. And Usagi is driving to horrified tears when it happens, blaming Chibi-Usa for it, because if Chibi-Usa hadn't stolen Usagi's brooch to use her Silver Crystal, she could've saved the girls. Here's the thing though. At this point we know how much Chibi-Usa annoys Usagi, but at this moment Usagi is so utterly angry at Chibi-Usa she almost started ''hitting her'' had Mamoru not intervened. And all Chibi-Usa does is close her eyes and wait for it to happen, leading one to to wonder [[FridgeHorror how often has she been hit to get that reaction?]]

Added DiffLines:

** Koan's speech, solidifying she's gone past the DespairEventHorizon, is as sad in the original sub, the Viz dub, and, surprisingly, the first English dub. It seems Mary Long's voice acting tended to be better during more emotional scenes, and it helps that the writing made it a bit more personal by making Catzi refer to Rubeus by name instead of as "Master."
*** Original Sub:
---->'''Koan''': It's already too late. You win. It seems that the love I believed in was wrong.
*** [=DiC=] Dub:
---->'''Catzi''': It's too late! He hates me. Everyone does. Rubeus, the only man I ever really loved, but it was a lie!
*** Viz Dub:
---->'''Koan''': You win. Sailor Mars, you were right. My love wasn't real.

** (From another troper) In episode 97, Ami has severe self-doubts. After a pep-talk from Mamoru and regaining her self-esteem after a swimming race with Michiru, she is attacked by a daimon. Sailor Moon tries to save her, but is incapacitated, and has to watch helplessly while the daimon takes out Ami's heart. She begs it to leave Ami alone, because she has beautiful dreams and because she's her dear friend. Ami hears it and starts crying.
