* The episode "Twisted Sister" is utterly heart-wrenching. The girls try to make a fourth Powerpuff Girl, and because they substitute some ingredients, their new sister Bunny turns out a little... special. She tries very hard to fight crime, but never gets it right... [[spoiler: until the end, where she saves her sisters and then explodes. The other three girls feel horrible, because the last thing they told her was "Bunny do bad!" and that she wasn't cut out to be a Powerpuff Girl]]. Even TheNarrator cried as he was [[DownerEnding closing the show]], complete with a heartrending sad version of the Powerpuff Girls outro playing in the background.

** The entire episode is hard to watch, actually. Seeing the city, which normally is ''incredibly'' friendly despite all that it goes through, torment the girls is ''heartbreaking.'' It's especially bad when '''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou The Narrator]]''', who is probably one of the nicest, happiest characters on the show, snaps at them. The horror and shock on the girls is [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2015_08_03_at_73942_pm.jpg all too evident.]]
-->'''The Narrator:''' "Oh for crying out loud, would you three shut up for once!? Always crying and moaning about something... sheesh, you give me a headache!"

* In "All Chalked Up" when Buttercup destroys the chalk. Bubbles's reaction is super tragic and horrifying. Her loud, scary sounding InelegantBlubbering sounds NOTHING like it normally does. It sounds like real actual crying. A lot of fans did not take that well. It even provides the page image. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Vyws5vNTKo Try watching it without feeling bad for Bubbles.]]

* Blossom of all people ''stealing'' the golf clubs as a Father's Day gift for the Professor, an act that gets him arrested and turns her own sisters against her when it is clear that she keeps lying about how she got them. To see the whole family fighting among themselves to get the truth out of her is as upsetting as it is unsettling.

** Finally, Blossom's punishment, where she must perform community service to make up for her actions. It all makes for quite the DownerEnding.

** Blossom's absolute terror at getting caught, repeatedly making things worse for herself as she keeps changing her story. It all culminates with Bubbles and Buttercup attacking her until she has no choice but to talk.
** Blossom and the Professor's respective apologies over the whole mess, with Blossom tearfully admitting her good intentions didn't justify her actions and the Professor realizing he put too much value on the clubs instead of the love of his girls. Not exactly the Father's Day this family was counting on, nor one they're likely to want to remember.

* Anytime Bubbles cries. Seeing such an adorable and likable character upset is always a huge gut-punch, the most notable instances being [[TheWoobie "Octi Evil"]] and [[InelegantBlubbering "All Chalked Up"]].

However, you may become desensitized by it due to the fact that [[FragileFlower Bubbles cries a lot.]]



* The ending of "A Very Special Blossom". Even though it was wrong for Blossom to steal the golf clubs and she did have to be punished for it, you can't help but feel sorry for her.

* The girls getting a pet called Beebo in "Pet Feud", but the Professor warns them to only feed him once. The girls misunderstand and each of them feed him separately. Beebo gets bigger and bigger and out of control until he eats too much and explodes. The girls say a very sad, "Beebo went boom..."

** When the professor cries, it doesn't sound like someone acting; it sounds like a father crying over losing his daughters. It sounds ''so, so realistic''.

* In "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey", the Girls are fighting all of the villains. They get easily defeated by them. So when The Powerpuff Girls sing this really sad song called "Rain". And if you look closely at their eyes when they are singing in the rain, you will see that they are ''crying.'' Sniff.

*** What really makes it so depressing is that at first Bubbles's blubbering is extremely ''loud'' and at first, but later her sobs get much quieter as she hides in the forest, which is really how real crying sounds like. Creator/TaraStrong, [[HeReallyCanAct you really can act....]]
*** You also can't see Bubbles's face at all during the aforementioned "bursts into tears" scene. One can't help but wonder that she may not have been just ''sobbing'' wretchedly, but also may have looked pretty unpleasant too.....
*** If you look in the background, all the kids plus Blossom look completely shocked at what just happened. But to make things worse, Buttercup is ''smirking'' the entire time Bubbles is wailing. That episode might have been what solidified Buttercup haters' hate for her.
*** A meta example, [[NeverLiveItDown good luck finding anyone who's forgiven Buttercup for that incident.]] If you're a Buttercup lover, you really won't be happy about how much resentment Buttercup got after that.
*** [[FreezeFrameBonus A blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment]] [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/powerpuff/images/5/5c/Tumblr_o84aw4UVGi1tsee73o1_500.png/revision/latest?cb=20160722160015 of Bubbles's sad face]] right before she breaks down crying.
