* ''TearJerker/SuperMarioGalaxy''



* The storybook segments in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy''. The art style and background music is slightly heart-rending to begin with, but it gets worse when [[spoiler:Rosalina admits to herself that her mother is [[NeverSayDie "sleeping under the tree in the hill"]]]].
** At first the music is just like all of the other storyline segments but after the playback of young Rosalina's memories the music changes as she has a complete breakdown.
--->'''Rosalina:''' I want to go home! I want to go home right now! I want to go home! I want to go back to my house by the hill! [[spoiler: [[IWantMyMommy I want to see my mother!]] But I know she's not there! I knew all along she wasn't out there in the sky! Because...because... [[WhamLine she's sleeping under the tree on the hill!]]]]
** Not to mention the game's ending: [[spoiler:All of the Lumas die due to what appears to be the universe ending... followed by muted baby cries, representing that they have been reborn.]]
*** When [[spoiler:your Luma chirps and waves goodbye to you before hurling itself into the black hole...]]
*** Related to this, if you finish the game with all 120 stars, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxZ2pTdxQHY the bonus scene after the credits]] will likely have you crying tears of a different sort; [[spoiler:after Rosalina [[BreakingTheFourthWall says her farewell]] and her ship takes off, the camera pans to a small planet and zooms in to reveal your Luma peeking from behind a rusted mushroom ship (presumably the same one from the storybook) and waving, alive and well after all... followed by a shot of the Luma chirping as it soars into the air.]]
** When the black hole forms and begins sucking the characters into it, Mario and Peach [[FutileHandReach desperately reach for each other]] before flying apart.
** The background music (a slowed-down remix of the "Good Egg Galaxy" level music from the first ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' game) that plays on the World 1 map from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2''.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqYg7SxU2yE Some of the character reactions to getting a bogey or a double bogey in the Mario Golf series]] is sometimes very depressing to watch. Especially in Mario Golf Toadstool Tour and Mario Golf World Tour.
** Mario reacts by running in circles and covering his eyes crying. Until he trips on the ground and admits his loss.
** Luigi gets shocked and admittedly starts crying.
** Bowser Jr starts throwing a temper tantrum.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4M1f09NoOI&t=6m35s Toadette yells and then falls on the ground and begins sobbing.]] A yellow and green toad quickly run up to her and try to calm her down. Toadette doesn't take her losing very well, and quickly pushes both toads out of the way and runs away crying.

** Waluigi breaks down quite dramatically in ''Toadstool Tour'', reaching skywards and letting out a BigWhy in agony. In ''World Tour'', he swoons theatrically before a [[PortableHole hole appears out of nowhere underneath him]], causing him to fall into the abyss.

* Saving Princess Toadstool for the very first time in the original ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros''.
* ''Videogame/SuperMarioBros2'' turning out to be AllJustADream. Most likely, Mario and company had great times kicking the butts of Wart and his forces together, but those adventures never actually happened and only Mario will remember them.

* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'''s credits, which not only has the music but also scenes of people you've met throughout your journey getting their wishes finally granted. And just when you think it's over, the main VideoGame/SuperMarioBros theme starts playing on a music box.

*** Want something along the lines of Fridge Tear Jerker/Horror to add to that? If you aren't too wrapped up in the fight, you'll notice that FLUDD's dialog starts out normal, then gets increasingly broken. Considering a few things, like the fact that it doesn't look like he ever actually got hit during the fight, this implies either that he was steadily breaking throughout the entire game, or that Mario was handling him much rougher than he could take during the boss fight. And FLUDD was either too concerned with the task at hand (or at least helping Mario), or didn't know he was breaking until the last minute.

** In a meta example, BobHoskins, who portrayed Mario in the movie, passed away at the age of 71.
** In the movie itself, Lena stabbing poor Yoshi. Hard to say she didn't [[MoralEventHorizon cross the line]] there. Even Daisy felt sorry for him.

** Daisy learns that her father was de-evolved into a mushroomy goop which is still sentient. [[spoiler:He gets turned back by the end. Toad isn't, as far as we see.]]
