* The ending to [[SuperSmashBros64 the original.]]
** To explain, [[spoiler:After you defeat Master Hand, the character you played as is dropped on a table in what appears to be a kids room, where they lay motionless for the rest of the cutscene. All the while, emotional music plays in the background while the camera zooms out and the screen fades to white. The screen then cuts to black to the sound of a door closing before cutting to the credits.]] One of the most tissue-reaching endings is [[{{Pokemon}} Pikachu's,]] who [[spoiler:sits there staring at the camera with [[GoOutWithASmile an honest-to-Arceus smile on his face.]]]]
* Arguably mild, but in ''Melee'' after you and your character struggle through Adventure mode together, he or she becomes nothing more than a lifeless trophy while a sad music box tune plays in the background.

** Oh Mei Ling, you must not have finished ''VideoGame/MOTHER3'', have you?
*** Though if this is post-Mother 3 Lucas, this wraps around to heartwarming. Even a character not from his own world is wishing him luck.

** On the topic of Marth, one of his win quotes can be translated as "''Today, I was able to survive again.''" It is quite possible that this is referencing the Perma-death system in his own series. And when one looks into them, despite them often being [[AttentionWhole misinterpreted differently]], it's also possible to interpret his other quotes, (a relieved and somewhat childish "It seems I have won for today", a determined "I cannot afford to lose!", and "Everyone, please watch me!", said with a rather pleading tone), as well as the fact that in one of his idle animations he puts his hand over his chest and seemingly breaths to regain composure, as further evidence that [[ShellShockedVeteran the war never ended for him]]. Even in a friendly competition like Smash, [[TheWoobie the poor guy still can't get the battlefield and its constant threat of death out of his mind]]. On a similar note, Roy describes the battle he just fought as "painful" in one of his victory quotes.

* Ocarina of Time players will recognize the sound Young Link makes when he's put to sleep by whatever means. It's the sound he makes when he's suffering from a nightmarish premonition of being attacked by Ganondorf. Every time Young Link goes to sleep in Melee, ''[[TheWoobie he has]] [[FridgeHorror nightmares]]''.
* Do you remember the betrayal of the entire R.O.B. race against [[TearJerker/TheSubspaceEmissary the Ancient Minister?]] [[https://41.media.tumblr.com/90501ceba5aedce6279ea85ab1a1313d/tumblr_nuvlk1dzth1tswdslo1_500.jpg It's canon.]] In Super Smash Brothers 4, there is a Boxing Ring stage for Little Mac, the Punch Out!! Representative. Affectionately, each playable character was given a boxing name. While most are fitting, and sometimes funny, R.O.B.'s is [[LastOfHisKind "The Last of His Kind."]] So the Subspace Emissary not only is [[WordOfGod canon in the Super Smash Bros. franchise,]] but this R.O.B. is the Ancient Minister; the same Ancient Minister that witnessed the genocide of his entire race, and has been carrying the weight of his own sins as well as knowing that it is all his fault that the R.O.B.s are dead. This is the '''''same R.O.B.''''' that has emotions. And now he lives with the utter trauma of his entire species turning on him and setting him on fire, just before their destruction. That was the moment where his world comes crashing down (Quite literally once the island is destroyed). And to top it all off, after the Subspace Emissary ends, he's all alone until Super Smash Brothers 4. Feel horrible yet? It gets worse. While it is also a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, when R.O.B. blasts down a bunch of enemies, he looks… [[StoicWoobie sad]].

* Speaking of character sound effects, there's Duck Hunt's star KO sound: it yelps in pain like a real dog. Even though this dog caused problems for so many gamers, you're reminded that it's still a ''dog.'' Especially heart-piercing if you're an animal lover...

* Reading the translations text to the game's main theme after beating the Subspace Emissary will surely make anyone who has a heart cry. [[LudwigVanBeethoven Especially if you know what influenced the music and text.]]
