** Molly desperately saying "We'll get a doctor and everything will be alright [[spoiler: Neflite hang on, I don't want you to go Neflite, no don't leave me!]]me!]] Followed by an utterly heartrending BigNO that will send chills down your spine.

** 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.

* The episode where Sailor Moon purifies Koan. Koan is madly in love with Rubeus, but he doesn't care at all about her. So when she fails him again while fighting Sailor Mars, he gives her a ball of destruction that will kill everything in the area, including her. Koan starts crying, accepts her death and tells Mars "You won". The other senshi arrive and thwart her plan but Koan starts attacking them out of anger and sadness, saying she's useless and that she has lost everything. Just as Sailor Jupiter is about to lay a kick on her, Mars takes the hit for her and says Koan hasn't lost everything and can fix her life little by little and begs Sailor Moon to purify her.

* Usagi's dream in episode 62: The friendship Friendship of the Sailor Warriors, goodbye Warriors! Goodbye Ami!



* Episode 69 ([[spoiler: Usagi gets so depressed over [[ItsNotYouItsMe Mamoru dumping her]] that she's easy prey for the Youma that almost kills her through a LotusEaterMachine, but Mamoru can't return with her even after saving her through a KissOfLife]]. Mamoru would not get back together with Usagi until Episode 78.)
* Episode 69, where Usagi/Serena thinks Mamoru/Darien dumped her for another girl [[spoiler: who turns out to be his best friend's little sister]] (this was around the time that Mamoru/Darien had recurring nightmares of marrying Serena and a voice telling Mamoru/Darien to stay away from her or the universe would be destroyed), there's a part where Usagi/Serena is in front of the refrigerator, stuffing her face out of depression, though that's nothing compared to the scene in episode 61 where after Usagi/Serena fails at getting back together with Mamoru/Darien, she then walks down the street, stops at a phone booth, locks herself in it, and breaks down crying.
** Also in Episode 69, the MonsterOfTheWeek puts Sailor Moon in a sort of trance that starts to drain her life away. The scouts can't get her to wake up. Luna leaves the scene as she has flashbacks of Usagi/Serena stuffing her face from earlier that night. Luna gets to Mamoru/Darien's place and pleads with him to come save her. At first he's reluctant (because he still believes he's trying to protect her) but eventually goes and saves her when Luna tells him she's dying. This is a HopeSpot for Sailor Moon, but he just turns a cold shoulder to her again after the enemy is defeated. And ''then'' we see Mamoru on his own in the nearby river, crying and quietly saying "Usako, I'm sorry..."

Koan starts crying and is seriously considering using it. The other scouts arrive and thwart her plan but Koan starts attacking the other scouts out of anger and sadness, saying she's useless. Just as Sailor Jupiter is about to lay one on her, Mars takes the hit for her and says Koan doesn't have to be evil anymore and they can purify her.
** Due to Rubeus generally being a {{Jerkass}} to the Weird Sisters, they all have a [[HeelFaceTurn turning point]] that involves them reaching a DespairEventHorizon. Berthier/Birdie's moment had Koan coming after her as she tried to freeze herself to death, walking through all the obstacles that the crying and suicidal Berthier tosses at her, and telling her that yes, she's loved, which manages to strike a chord in her and finally stop her from killing herself.

* Episode 80, Ami was being accused of cheating on an exam and the way she's just looked down by the other students is heartbreaking. Later in the episode,the Monster Of the Day shoots a beam at her to make her have illusions that her friends are against her. While "they" are all saying that, there are clips of the other Senshi happy, making the scene all the more sad. The scene is just as sad in the English dub.

** Most of the episode as well. Especially Ami's image song.

* Saphir's [[spoiler:death! The guy, who's been nothing but dutiful towards his brother, Demando, finds out about Wiseman's true intentions, and tries to warn him. But because HeKnowsTooMuch, Wiseman attempts to kill him. Saphir escapes, ends up back in the hands of the sisters, but still tries to warn Demando of the danger they're in. In the end, Wiseman kills Saphir off (in front of Demando no less) before he can spill the beans. And then the bandages on Saphir's head fall off, revealing he's truly [[HeelFaceTurn turned good/been purified on his own free will]].]] And to drive it further, [[spoiler: there's a flashback of Demando and Saphir as kids looking at flowers, and Demando promising his little brother that one day they'll see flowers on Earth and live there. Saphir's death was every bit as painful for Demando as it was for the audience, since this means he'll never get to fulfill his promises to Saphir. Also at the moment of his death, the jacket he left with Petz from where it's hanging on the wall and she realizes he's died.]] Damn, it's just heartbreaking.



* When being brainwashed into Black Lady in season two, Chibi-usa has a dream about being abandoned on her birthday. The background music playing while she cries just makes it a thousand times worse.
** The other dream/flashback could count too. Chibiusa runs after a frog and slips in the rain when she ignores her mother's warning not to run. Her parents, because she didn't listen, refuse to help. The way Chibiusa views this is indeed heartbreaking, as she sees it as her parents ''wanting'' her to be hurt rather than wanting her to learn to be self-sufficient (as we learn a few episodes down the road).
** Chibiusa alone could qualify. Yes, yes, she's a brat at times, but think about it. She's a five-year-old kid who's desperate to save her mother and her kingdom, but has no idea how to go about it, all the while being pursued by villains out to murder her. On top of that, it's been established that [[LonelyRichKid she was VERY lonely back home]], to the point of being terrified that no one really loves her. Underneath all that brattiness lies a lost, scared, lonely little girl who just wants to go home and have things be normal again.
