* [[spoiler: Aviendha's vision of the future Aiel]] in ''Towers of Midnight''. A supremely epic vision of the degradation and fall of your honorable people, all fated to happen and caused by your descendents. The reader cannot help but feel for her and weep.

* In a surprising combination of TearJerker and BrickJoke, the revelation that the wolf called Boundless is [[spoiler:Noam, the half-mad Wolfbrother Perrin freed from a cage ''ten books previous''.]] Boundless indeed!

* The moment when [[spoiler: Logain's companions are turned to the Shadow and they have to fight their comrades, who are still on the Light. What is more, that nearly happened to Logain himself, and left him becoming unhinged for some time. Remember: that could happen to the whole world if Dark One got his freedom.]]

* The death of [[spoiler:Adeleas]] in ''The Path of Daggers''. [[spoiler:Her sister Vandene]] remains her normal calm and collected self when the body is discovered, as well as the following brainstorm session to try and figure out what happened, but the instant everyone leaves her alone with [[spoiler:her sister's corpse, she loses control and starts crying out in pain and grief loud enough for everyone to hear anyway.]]

* In ''The Shadow Rising'' it was heartbreaking reading Perrin's reaction to finding out that his family is dead, especially with everything that he risked to get to them quickly.

** Each time one of the Great Captains realize they have betrayed the light due to Compulsion is rather heartbreaking. These are good and great men who serve the light willingly and are prepared to die for Rand and the world, and then they realize that they have been forced to betray their men and their oaths each one is different but when they realize they sent good men who trusted them to die is terrible.

-->[[spoiler:HERE IS THE TRUTH, SHAI'TAN. YOU CANNOT WIN UNLESS WE GIVE UP. THAT'S IT, ISN'T IT? THIS FIGHT ISN'T ABOUT A VICTORY IN BATTLE. TAKING ME...IT WAS NEVER ABOUT BEATING ME. IT WAS ABOUT BREAKING ME. THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE TRIED TO DO WITH ALL OF US. IT'S WHY AT TIMES YOU TRIED TO HAVE US KILLED, WHILE OTHER TIMES YOU DIDN'T SEEM TO CARE. YOU WIN WHEN YOU BREAK US. BUT YOU HAVEN'T. YOU CAN'T.]]
** Oddly enough, Lanfear is the subject of a couple of these. Her confrontation with Rand in his dreamshard, where he reveals to her he does not love her and never did, is rather heartbreaking, and she almost, ''almost'' relents, [[spoiler:allowing him into her mind and coming this close to coming back to the Light]]. In the end even Rand pities her for not knowing love and in fact being incapable of ever feeling it because of her need for power. Then near the very end [[spoiler:when she once again falls her into TheStarscream pattern and attempts to get Perrin to kill Moiraine, so she can kill Nynaeve, claim Callandor, and use Moridin's power to make Rand kneel while saving the Dark One from him and thus earning the greatest power she can possess, Perrin is forced to kill her. She had gone so mad from isolation, loss of love, pride, and desire to rule that she had to be put out of her misery...but it's still quite tragic.]] It's also an in-universe example since [[spoiler:Perrin, still under Compulsion to love her, cries over her body]].

* The history of the Aiel revealed in ''The Shadow Rising'' certainly counts. It takes up chapters 25 and 26 of the book, and it is ''heartbreaking''.

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: Ingtar]]'s HeroicSacrifice at the end of ''The Great Hunt''. Especially poignant because up until that point, [[spoiler: he was a Darkfriend]] who was [[TheAtoner desperately seeking some way to atone for his crimes]], and believed that [[spoiler: recovering the Horn of Valere would lead to his salvation if he could lead the Heroes of the Horn against the Shadow]], and then finally decided that he would seek his salvation instead by [[YouShallNotPass giving Rand and his friends the time to escape with the Horn.]]
