* Agronak gro-Malog's discovery that his father was a vampire leads him into a severe identity crisis and ultimately suicidal depression that causes him to forfeit the Grand Championship match, allowing you to kill him without him fighting back. You ''will'' feel like a bastard for causing his disillusionment with himself, and for taking advantage of his depression to become Grand Champion without a fight. It lends a very bittersweet feeling to the end of the Arena questline, especially when the Blue Team Gladiator, who had been nothing but amicable until that point, angrily [[WhatTheHellHero calls you out on murdering Agronak in cold blood.]]

*The whole game is one, albeit in a more subtle and melancholic manner. First, Uriel Septim, who was emperor during all the previous games, and whom you have helped in your various incarnations as a PC, is slain. The Septim Empire, which united the whole of Tamriel is facing a terminal decline. And to top it all off, remember all of your favourite places, people, guilds/societies and else? [[spoiler: They will most likely be destroyed or killed in the ensuing equivalent of WW2 ("The Great War") against the Third Aldmeri Dominion.]].

* The ultimate fate of Martin Septim, who [[spoiler: sacrifices himself to become an Avatar for Akatosh to permanently defeat Mehrunes Dagon and seal off Oblivion forever. This counts as a tearjerker, since aside from the potential of him being a great Emperor, Martin was himself a ''good'' man, who counted more of TheHero of the story than the player character did.]]

** The beginning, too. When you first meet Martin in the chapel of ruined Kvatch, before he even knows who you are or he is, he just sounds so weary and disillusioned. [[spoiler:Possibly even HarsherInHindsight, when you know how it all turns out.]]

* You can find a dead troll under a bridge. Funny? Yes, until you read the note on it's body.

* The 'Final Resting' quest, where you are asked to put someone out of their misery. The suicide note is just the icing on the cake.

** The Dark Brotherhood quest the Purification: [[spoiler: you have to kill all of the members who have come to love you like family. This [[ItGotWorse is made worse]] by the fact that you later find out there was no traitor -- at least not in the Cheydinhal Sanctuary. You killed them all for nothing.]]

* Another Dark Brotherhood quest, The Lonely Wanderer, makes me tear up every time I have to do it. To find Faelian, you have to ask around for info, and [[spoiler: end up at the King and Queen Lodge in the Talos Plaza District of the Imperial City.]] You talk to the innkeeper there about him, and she mentions how he has a wealthy girlfriend that's apparently devoted to him. You talk to the girlfriend (possibly needing to chat her up into a friendlier level), and SHE tells you all about how even though [[spoiler: Faelian's a penniless Skooma addict, she still loves him and hopes he manages to someday clean himself up before he gets himself killed.]] All this to corner Faelian and kill him. Makes this troper feel guilty every time.
