** And hell, just the realization that the Giant takes Hogarth up on his advice of proving to the town that he's good... [[spoiler:by ''sacrificing himself.'' Feasibly, he could've shot the bomb down, but no, he chose to do this so he'd never bring all this chaos to anyone again.]] [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Oh, Giant.]]

* Literally the entire scene once the air raid siren starts going off. Starting with Hogarth [[ExplainExplainOhCrap explaining to the Giant what it means.]]
-->'''Hogarth:''' [[spoiler:A missile! When it comes down... ''[crushing realization]'' ...everyone will die.]]
** This exchange of dialogue. Just the hopelessness and sense of realism in Dean's voice:
--> [[spoiler:'''Annie:''' Shouldn't we get to a shelter?]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Dean:''' ...it wouldn't matter...]]

** The utter ''exhaustion'' in General Rogard's voice after the giant's sacrifice is tear-jerking in its own way as well.

** "''[[ItMakesSenseInContext Superman...]]''"
*** One wonders what Creator/VinDiesel would say to the knowledge that he can reduce grown men to tears with a single word. One that isn't a threat, that is.
*** One also imagines that [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} Kal-El]] would be honored.

*** Even worse is how he realizes [[spoiler: Hogarth is (supposedly) dead]]: [[PleaseWakeUp he nudges his body]], which doesn't respond. [[MeaningfulEcho Just like the deer]].
** Watching the Giant [[spoiler: succumb to his defense mechanism]] can be a TearJerker as well. Yes it can be a SugarWiki/{{Awesome Moment|s}} for some, but it's very much like [[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc Sulley scaring Boo]]; we've gotten so used to this GentleGiant that seeing him like this is legitimately horrifying, especially since he actually tried to resist his mechanism just a few seconds ago.
*** [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone The Giant hyperventilating like a frightened child]] once he snaps out of his rage and goes back to normal.

* Watching the Giant struggle in pain as the electrical wires he had been trying to eat at the power plant electrocute him.

* Watching the Giant struggle in pain as the electrical wires he had been trying to eat at the power plant electrocute him. It's the first indication that this isn't just a monster, but a sentient being with feelings, which is why Hogarth goes back to save it.
