*** General Rogard figured a huge irony out of all this, he realized that the Giant that they were deployed in fighting against was the hero that stopped the missile from destroying them all and it was indirectly ''his'' fault.

** 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.]]

* [[spoiler: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4dT2eBWI2M The Giant's]] HeroicSacrifice]]: "[[MeaningfulEcho You...stay. I...go. No following.]]"

* 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.
