** [[spoiler:Sachi hums the song while Kirito utterly breaks into ManlyTears]]. Bonus points for the darkly sad and lonely atmosphere of that inn room during Christmas Eve. [[spoiler:Sachi was his first love, especially in the web novels, [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend regardless of what he says about that]]. Dude watched his first girlfriend die in front of him, just a few seconds before he reached her position.]] [[spoiler: While they were not in a relationship, the word choices he used (in the original Japanese, at least) strongly implies he was in love with Sachi. But he recognized that emotionally above love, they were first and foremost {{Living Emotional Crutch}}es for each other. Like two {{Broken Bird}}s hanging onto each other for comfort. Which makes her death and his subsequent breakdown even more tragic.]]

* The Alicization Arc, which has [[spoiler: Eugeo dying, Cardinal dying, Charlotte dying, all within a few dozen pages from one another. Eugeo's death breaks Kirito, who [[HeroicBSOD blames himself]].]]
** [[spoiler: The attack on Ocean Turtle ends with Kirito's brain damage [[GameBreakingInjury getting worse]] to the point where he's out of commission (being confined to a wheelchair), even though he's still inside Underworld. The cover of the 15th volume portrays the sadness quite nicely. To make things even worse for the heroes, Vassago beats him up while still suffering from his GameBreakingInjury.]]
* [[spoiler:Kirito's JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind moment in the web novel adaptation is a mix of this, and NightmareFuel. Seeing his past memories and Eugeo's dead body [[DespairEventHorizon takes a huge toll]] on the poor kid to the point that ''[[DrivenToSuicide he would've killed himself by crushing his heart with his bare hands]]''... if it weren't for the images of Asuna, Leafa, Sinon, and Eugeo [[YouAreNotAlone snapping him out of it]].]]
** [[spoiler: And after recovering from his GameBreakingInjury and kicking Vassago's ass, he still keeps Eugeo's sword as his TragicKeepsake. Kirito's bond with Eugeo is [[LivingEmotionalCrutch just as important as his relationship with Asuna]].]]
** [[spoiler: Following his victory over Gabriel, the first first thing Kazuto did after going back home from the hospital is [[TheMourningAfter mourning Eugeo's loss]]. It hits him ''so bad'', even Suguha has to listen to his story in UW after comforting him.]]
