* The mini comic [[http://i.imgbox.com/jp5WyzEH.jpg "Leah".]] What makes it even more of a tear jerker is that the writer made it in remembrance of a friend. The story is inspired from ''Literature/TheLittleMatchgirl'', so the tearjerker has to be expected. It also combines with heartwarming, though, that instead DyingAlone, Leah falls into coma alone and she's found by Spidey who immediately takes her to the hospital. But the doctor informs him that the girl won't make it. Spidey kisses her on the cheek while wishing "Sweet dreams, Leah." Later, we are shown that while dying, Leah has a DyingDream where she and Spider-Man go into adventure along with '''many''' other Marvel heroes, among them includes ComicBook/IronMan, ComicBook/MsMarvel, ComicBook/SilverSurfer, [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] and even the ComicBook/SubMariner. The words on the last panel take it all, "Sweet. Sweet Dreams." ''Sob''.

** "Peter, whatever he [Mephisto] does or undoes, it doesn't matter. Because whatever he does to pull us apart would have to be stronger and bigger than what brought us together and kept us together, no matter what happened. And there is no power in the universe big enough for a job like that. Not the devil, not god, not ANYONE. We will find each other and be together again."

* During the Gauntlet, Peter Parker was unemployed, cosmically divorced, and being battered by his classic enemies. The only good thing to come out of everything was that Aleksei Sytsevich, the Rhino, had married and reformed. When the new Rhino kills Aleksei's wife, Spider-Man desperately pleads and struggles in vain to keep Aleksei from becoming the Rhino again and is left with nothing but fear and loneliness when he fails.

* TearJerker/SpiderVerse



* If you can get past the whole Mary Jane [[spoiler: dying because of radioactive cells from having sex with Peter]], then the story can actually be quite sad, like when [[spoiler: Doctor Octopus gives the original Spider-Man costume back to a crushed Peter Parker, but Doctor Octopus was already dead, trying to find Peter so that he could bring the age of Super Heroes back, he put a recorded message into his arms to deliver this.]]
* What happens to [[spoiler: Sandman's daughter. He wasn't even aware of her existence, and he only realizes her true identity right before she's murdered by the Mayor's thugs. His horror and grief at her fate is what ultimately gives him the strength to rebel and help Spider-Man defeat Venom and rid New York of its fascist regime.]]

* When Norman [[spoiler:dies]]. "Don't tell Harry."
** [[spoiler: Norman's funeral]].
--> '''Aunt May:''' Well, you start by doing the hardest thing: You forgive yourself. I believe in you, Peter. You're a good person. And I know you'll find a way to put it right.
* Uncle Ben's death, definitely. Peter arrives to find his uncle lying on the sidewalk. Peter calls his name and Uncle Ben hears him. "Peter...?" Peter says "I'm here, Uncle Ben." but Ben is fading quick and can't even tell he's there. With one last, desperate call out to Pete, he dies, leaving Peter to sob over his body. It's that last "...Peter...!" that always gets this troper.
** The PartingWordsRegret makes it even worse. Ben tried to impart a lesson, but Peter is too frustrated to listen. The look on Ben's face after Peter says his line is devastating.
--->'''Ben:''' I don't mean to preach, and I know I'm not your father.\\
'''Peter:''' Then stop pretending to be!
** It's even sadder when you consider what really happened in ''Film/SpiderMan3''. Because Peter let the thief get away with the money, he caused Flint Marco to accidentally shoot Ben. Really, that adds more guilt to Peter's conscious, inadvertently making ''him'' responsible for his uncle's death.
* The ending. [[spoiler: Peter finally has what he's always wanted, the chance to be together with Mary Jane... and he has to reject her to keep her safe.]]

* From [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/760115.html Webspinners - Tales of Spider-Man]] comes The Show Must Go On, wherein Spider-Man's first supervillain the Chameleon has a breakdown after trying to start a new life. He goes to a circus and becomes a clown named Eugene and, although he likes his new life and the person he's become, finds that he is still unable to fully rid himself of his past, even if only in his head. He pretends that he's holding MJ hostage on a bridge in order to draw out Spider-Man into meeting him so that they can hopefully talk. They discuss what drove Chameleon into giving up his new, happy life, getting personal with Peter's mask off and Chameleon asking to be called by his first name Dmitri. Chameleon finally is able to work himself up into confessing what's really been driving him into despair: that he loves Peter. Peter, out of shock rather than out of mocking, laughs. Chameleon, although trying to brush it off and act like he was joking and even joining in on Peter's laughter, is clearly crushed. Seriously, his face after Peter starts laughing is heartbreaking. Not to mention when he softly says, "Stop it..." in a way that could be construed as telling Peter to stop making him laugh, but is clearly actually him begging for Peter to stop laughing. And Peter never meant to laugh, it was his reaction to the shock of Chameleon's confession, not any malice. After they finally stop, Chameleon hands over the gun he was holding to Peter, telling him that he was glad he could make him smile and that he looks nice when he does. Chameleon then proceeds to fold his arms over his chest, smile peacefully, and falls off of the bridge. Although Peter quickly dives him afterwards, horrified that he's accidentally driven a man to suicide and in a similar manner to how Gwen Stacy died, he's too late and Chameleon hits the water. Chameleon wound up surviving this, but it's still one of the most tearjerking moments in any Spider-Man comic.
