* * Many victory quotes against Evil Ryu in the Arcade Edition of ''IV'', especially from friends and associates of Ryu, express severe shock, sadness, concern or disappointment at his fall from grace. Some are quite heartbreaking.

* ''Generations'' may not be fully canon, but damn it is depressing. Specially in [[spoiler: the flashbacks to Akuma and Gouken's more or less happy lives before it went FromBadToWorse]], and the BittersweetEnding where [[spoiler: Akuma recovers some parts of his humanity after almost killing Ryu in battle (and mind you, this particular AlternateUniverse all but states that ''Ryu is Akuma's son'')]] and later [[spoiler: the OldMaster that Ryu befriends passes away, and Ryu leaves after mourning him.]]

** Related to the issue, [[http://thechamba.deviantart.com/art/Hold-your-Head-Up-107623923 a variant cover]] drawn by UDON artist Jeffery "Chamba" Cruz shows [[spoiler: a wounded Sagat clutching onto a bloodied Go Hibiki's head, while behind him, Dan screams for his father with Chun-Li holding him back]]. Never before has a ButtMonkey character brought you to tears...
* Juri's backstory, first revealed in the ''Super Street fighter IV: Juri OVA'' above, was expanded by UDON. [[spoiler:She was a Taekwondo prodigy who was frequently pressured to uphold her family name, and her parents, while loving, were strict and demanding. Her father's decision to prosecute Shadaloo led to Juri's mother being killed, and him being ransomed and publicly executed on camera. Juri, however, survived, but she lost her left eye to a stray bullet when Shadaloo attacked and fell into a coma for a month. All of this left Juri with a very intense hatred of Shadaloo, Bison in particular]].

* Rashid's entire storyline can count. He desperately tries to rescue his friend, a female scientist forced to work for Shadaloo. He even went so far as to work with the , who clearly don't care about his dilemma. [[spoiler: Tragically, he was too late as she was already murdered by F.A.N.G. Even worse, it happened just as Rashid was infiltrating the base, meaning he could have saved her if he didn't stop to rescue Li-Fen. Still, like Charlie above, he gets a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when he avenges her death by beating the crap out of F.A.N.G and using her final command code to stop the Black Moons.]]

* All of the titles unlocked in the original edition of ''IV'' by using a character tell something deeply personal about them, when they aren't being funny in a cheeky way. What's one of Ryu's title cards? "Wish I had a family". [[PlayerPunch OUCH!]] [[spoiler: If ''WebVideo/StreetFighterAssassinsFist'' and/or ''Anime/StreetFighterAlphaGenerations'' '''are''' canon, Gouken may be his biological father by Goutetsu's daughter Sayaka.]]

* [[spoiler: Bison's death. Yes, he '''totally''' deserves it, and his death scene is pretty awesome, but it's still a damn shame to see such an iconic villain who's been constantly kept alive finally die for real this time. What sells it is that he [[FaceDeathWithDignity faces death with dignity]] and gives off one final EvilLaugh before his body and Psycho Power are dissolved away by the Power of Nothingness, while F.A.N.G cries out for him in anguish.]]

*** [[spoiler: In the end, however, he does get a dignified HeroicSacrifice after all, along with realizing the error of his ways when it's revealed that he can't kill Bison because he's a walking corpse and his hate is merely fuel for Bison's Psycho Power. Nash ends up using his newfound ability to absorb energy to de-power Bison as much as possible after his supply of Psycho Power via the Black Moons has been stopped so that Ryu can finish what he started. While he does end up weakening Bison severely, the energy is too much for him to handle and it results in an explosion that destroys his decaying body. Only his dog tags remain, which Bison promptly [[KickTheDog steps on]].]]

* A few endings are genuinely sad. A notable example would be T. Hawk's ending, where he [spoiler: finds Juli/a with Rose's help, but her experience with Shadaloo has totally traumatized her to the point of being put in a near-catatonic state, mute, and unresponsive to external stimuli, being unable to remember T. Hawk at all when she meets him again]]. It is probably one of the most depressing things you would ever see in a fighting game.
