* 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?]]

** The same could be said for a similar moment that happens with Pluto. When Chibiusa brings everyone to the time door, she expects Pluto to be angry with her for breaking the rule. That's understandable. What isn't is when Chibiusa apologizes, Pluto raises her hand, and Chibiusa gets scared, closes her eyes, and ducks a little. When Pluto instead gently pats her head, she's surprised Pluto's not angry. It's one thing to fear Usagi, who's generally immature anyway. It's different to fear Pluto, who's not only very mature, but like a second mom to her. Take in the fact there's also an episode where Chibiusa believed her parents were glad she'd hurt herself, and you really have to wonder if there's something to Chibiusa's past besides loneliness.

* Episode 47 ([[spoiler: when Usagi gets her LaserGuidedAmnesia undone by Luna and bloodcurdlingly screams [[BigNo "NO!"]] when she remembers that she's Sailor Moon, and sadly says [[IJustWantToBeNormal "Futsuu no Usagi-chan ni... bai bai..."/"To the ordinary Usagi... bai bai...]] after finishing off the MonsterOfTheWeek. Luna's expression even changes from angry (at Ail and En) to worried concern before she says it. Heartbreaking. )]]

** 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."

* 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.

* One from the R manga: [[spoiler: Sailor Pluto's HeroicSacrifice, when she stops time ''knowing'' it'll kill her so she can stop Demando from destroying the universe]]. Especially when [[spoiler: it undoes Chibi-Usa/Black Lady's brainwashing, lets her morph into Sailor Chibimoon, and then the poor little girl sees Pluto's dead body and '''bawls'''. This Troper can't remember the exact quote, but it was like this: "Pluto! Look at me, please! Open your eyes! I wanted you to see me as a Sailor Senshi! I want you to see I've grown! PLUTO, PLEASE, WAKE UP! NOOOOOOOOOOO!".]]}

* In the episode where Usagi gets her first MidSeasonUpgrade, Haruna-sensei finds Naru and Umino passed out [[CherryBlossoms at the feet of a cherry tree]]. The poor woman [[AdultFear panics at the sight of two collapsed teens]] and [[BrokenTears tearfully begs]] a nearby person for medical help... Too bad said "person" is the MonsterOfTheWeek, and she knocks her out too.

* Episode 70 in which 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.

* The backstory deaths of both of Makoto's parents in a plane crash goes from vaguely sad to absolutely gutwrenching when you take cultural context into account and realize that Naoko Takeuchi very likely had in mind the real-life crash of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan_Airlines_Flight_123 Japanese Airlines Flight 123]] on its flight from Tokyo to Osaka during the Obon holiday - the greatest single-airplane related tragedy in history, which is still brought up in Japan every year on the anniversary of the crash. The JAL123 crash occurred in 1985, when Makoto would have been seven years old; there were only four survivors, including two young girls. Worse yet, Mako's panic reaction to even hearing the sound of a plane engine suggests that she was ''on the plane'' with her parents, meaning that little Mako would have experienced both the half-hour struggle for the plane to stay aloft after a massive explosion depressurized the cabin, and the long wait between the plane's crash into the mountains at 7 pm until JSDF rescue teams finally showed up at the crash site the following morning.

** 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.
