* The death of E-102 "Gamma" at the end of his story in ''Sonic Adventure.'' Gamma the bird is free, Gamma the robot however deactivated and exploded in sphere of blaze. Though what really makes it is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-9FaXg5NOk the music]].

** The cutscene prior to the battle is particularly chilling, as Gamma assesses the remaining units he must destroy, he looks through flashback images in his memory banks, one of Beta being redesigned...and one of himself. As he looks at his hand and designates himself, we know Gamma's fate is sealed. The lack of background noise aside from a gentle sea wave greatly compliments the somber revelation:

** The prison cutscene. The supposedly intimidating robot confronts Amy for the bird, after she refuses, and in desperation, actually begs him to let it go. Gamma starts feeling pain from his new found empathy, going berserk before letting them out of their cell and ordering them to escape. He slumps over the door switch, dumbfounded and guilt ridden at disobeying his master's orders, though Amy shows sympathy and offers him her friendship before leaving. Gamma's heartwrenching theme playing in the background helps none.
*** Amy despite being locked away and under interrogation, can only feel pity for Gamma over his confusion over why she cares for Birdie so much:

** After his brethren fail to collect Froggy, Eggman angrily teleports them out of his sight to be made into something useful (which, as Gamma discovers throughout Beta, isn't a pleasant process at all). Before he vanishes in front of Gamma's eyes, a pained Delta turns to look at him. While no dialogue is said, most sources and media imply that Gamma felt guilty for dooming his brothers.

* The death of E-102 "Gamma" at the end of his story in ''Sonic Adventure.'' Though what really makes it is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-9FaXg5NOk the music]].
** Gamma's death isn't all that sad, upon considering that [[spoiler:the bird inside is finally free to be with its family]]. Although that's definitely touching.
*** It depends how you view Gamma's consciousness, [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation is it composed of the brainwashed bird inside a lifeless robotic shell, or is it a sentient life sacrificing his new-found life for the sake of the being powering him?]] This comes off as even more powerful in the ''SonicX'' version, where Amy bares witness to his HeroicSacrifice. While happy that Lily is reunited with her liberated parents, after they flutter away, she immediately bursts into tears over the now decomposed robot shell on the ground (made EVEN MORE powerful in the formation Beta and Gamma have fallen, their hands collapsing on each other as if to represent unity).
---> '''Amy:''' You managed to free them. Thank you. We are friends from now on. Now you and your brother can live together again.

** The worst of it all is how there is no one to mourn Gamma. His cohorts are all dead by his hand, Eggman vanished from the storyline but wouldn't take kindly to hearing that his robot had gone rogue. Sonic, Tails and Big don't care about him, and Amy never gets to see him again like she wanted. The only solace is (if Gamma and the bird are separate entities) that the bird family might be thankful to him. If they're intelligent enough.

** In the actual game, one scene between Amy and Gamma becomes a tearjerker in retrospect. Amy expresses hope that she and Gamma will meet again, but that is the last time they ever see each other.

* To a certain extent, Knuckles' predicament. He is forced to stay on Angel Island, guarding the Master Emerald. Bound by his duty to his species and to the gem itself, he is always tied to it, unable to stray too far. He will never be free like Sonic and Tails are.

* In one of Big's recaps, he wonders to himself if Froggy keeps running away because he doesn't like him anymore.

** To say nothing of poor Tikal [[spoiler: who sealed herself in the Master Emerald with him, just after her entire clan turned on her and the Chao and were destroyed by Chaos. The implication was that in her sorrow she intended to doom herself to that state again to save everyone, and while she given a more peaceful alternative, her original sacrifice still seemingly cost her mortal form.]]

** To think that Sonic wants to help SAVE the God of Destruction is heart wrenching to think about. All throughout the game, he saw Chaos as this huge enemy, determined to stop him and Eggman from destroying the world. To go from that over the course of the game, to understanding Chaos and wanting to save him could definitely count as a tearjerker.
