* When Prowl breaks the nest of bird's eggs in "A Fistful of Energon". Oh, it just breaks your heart to see the look on his face. You're ready to burst into tears. Broken bird's eggs! Oh, it's so sad, go on and admit it...

* Sari tearfully admiting to Ratchet that she tried to use her key to sabotage the Autobot's ship so they couldn't leave and how it wouldn't let them. Especially sad given how it's shown that their the only real friend's she's ever had. It becomes a heartwarming moment when Ratchet admits he's grown attached to her and he'll miss her when they eventually leave.

* Blurr's fate. Even if he did survive being crushed into a cube, and even if Cliffjumper is shown carrying the cube around with him in the comic, there's no telling if he'll ever be fixed back into his old shape again.

* [[{{Jerkass}} Wasp]] wasn't the most likable Autobot, but no one deserves his fate when he's fingered as a spy [[GoMadFromtheIsolation and sent to the Stockades]]. When Bulkhead and Bumblebee learn the true identity of the spy, Bulkhead's quiet horror says it best for both of them, having seen what imprisonment ''did'' to Wasp.
-->'''Bulkhead''': (to Bumblebee) You sent an innocent bot to the Stockade.

* Optimus’ final flashback in “Along Came a Spider”. Seeing Optimus, Elita, and Sentinel's interactions before it all went downhill, the way they had each other’s backs while fending off the spiders, and Elita being left to the spiders with Optimus and Sentinel believing her to be dead is quite sad.

to:

* Optimus’ final flashback ** Watch and listen when everybody gathers after the Lugnut Supreme exploded, and Jazz arrives with Prowl's dead shell. Optimus is the first to move towards Prowl while uttering a single, quiet, disbelieving ''"No"''.
** Megatron shoots at Optimus when he reaches for Prowl's body. The Decepticon should have been killed by the explosion, but instead, Prowl had to sacrifice himself so the same explosion would not obliberate Detroit and everyone
in “Along Came close vicinity. Prime's quick, vicious counter-attack against Megatron shows no heroics, no speeches, he simply smashes him down and refutes his request for a Spider”. Seeing quick death in battle. Optimus just lost one of his closest friends who promised him just a short time ago he would 'always be at his side'. Now Prowl is dead, it's all because of Megatron, and Optimus has no interest in his grief and rage to be 'merciful'.

*** What makes his [[GoingOutWithASmile smile]] so effective is ''how'' he does it. Pretty much every episode before has him either pull off a simple, normal smile (which is rare) and a smug grin. Cue the last episode when he dies and pulls that particular smile which he has ''never'' done before. It culminates all the CharacterDevelopment he got (the selfish, stoic loner to a willing soldier and loyal friend) and works perfectly for his HeroicSacrifice.

* No mention of "Lost and Found"? How about Ratchet's confession to Sari (after she tried to sabotage the ship) that the Autobots had to leave Earth or else the humans, including Sari [[spoiler:at the time]] would be wiped out by the Decepticons. The one that hits the hardest is his saying that he would never forgive himself if that were to happen in a quiet voice.

* [[spoiler:Prowl's HeroicSacrifice]] in Endgame Part 2. [[spoiler:I defy any fan to watch his "I'm sorry, Jazz, I have to do this" face before he lets himself be absorbed by the Allspark and not at least desperately want to cry. Made even worse by Jazz calling to him that they'll find another way, and then his final act to save Optimus.]] *weeps*
** I actually can't look at a shot of him smiling without tearing up.
*** What makes his smile so much more symbolic and poetic is ''how'' he does it. Pretty much every episode before has him either pull off a simple, normal smile (which is rare) and a smug grin. Cue the last episode when he dies and pulls that particular smile which he has ''never'' done before. It culminates all the CharacterDevelopment he got (the selfish, stoic loner to a willing soldier and loyal friend) and works perfectly for his HeroicSacrifice. When I saw that smile, I was ''devastated'', but ultimately satisfied.
** I am normally pretty stoic when it comes to movies and such. It takes a lot to make me cry. Yet watching [[spoiler: Prowl's death scene]] brought on the waterworks like I couldn't believe. No audible sobbing, but lots and lots of tears. It's official. Every time I watch the scene, I tear up. Every. Single. Time.
** The part that upset the most was [[spoiler: Starscream's death]]. I really liked him, especially in TransformersPrime and I thought he was so cool. His fearfulness of how he went was quite upsetting. Also, in deleted never made it past the drawing board found in Allspark Almanac 2, [[EnsembleDarkHorse Wreck]][[Music/WeirdAlYankovic -Gar]] kicks it.
* I still can't stand to watch [[spoiler:Blurr's death]]. How crazy is it to spend an entire week distraught over the death of a ''cartoon character'' [[spoiler: who was only around for three episodes anyway]]? But still...
** I agree that [[spoiler: Blurr's death]] is hard to watch. Especially considering [[spoiler:he was betrayed by someone he thought he could trust]] and just that it must have been so traumatic to be [[spoiler:trapped between two walls and literally crushed into a cube. Especially since he's all about speed. I can imagine that being trapped and unable to run freely like he was able to was horrifying]].
** In [[AllThereInTheManual Allspark Almanac 2,]] [[TheVoiceless Dugbase's]] entry said that he, Blurr and [[TagAlongKid Wheelie]] were a PowerTrio because of their unique speach patterns (or lack thereof). [[spoiler: Now they're just a duo]]
** It's implied that [[spoiler:he's still alive]], since his colors hadn't actually faded to black and white. This either makes the entire thing better or [[AndIMustScream much worse.]]
* Optimus’ final flashback in “Along Came a Spider”. Not totally because of Elita’s death, but because of ''Sentinel’s reaction''. Oh dear God. After watching their none-too-subtle characterizations as boyfriend / girlfriend before it all started to go down the toilet, the way they had each other’s back while fending off the spiders, the way he ''covered Elita’s and Optimus’ retreat''… The way Sentinel screamed her name as she fell… That is the cry of a man whose heart is about to be broken in the worst way, and to this day I still can’t watch that episode without wanting to cry and/or hug the poor guy.
** Blackarachnia in the episode warranted some hugs too. [[spoiler:It must have been unbearably painful for her to live for such a long time in such a disoriented state, and you can't really blame her for switching alliances and not trusting Optimus. And by the end of "Along Came a Spider" she looks off into the moon, crying alone.]]
** Add to that the eventual follow-up. [[spoiler:In "Predacons Rising," Sentinel learns that Elita survived... as the organic and twisted Blackarachnia. While disgusted by her organic body,]] in the end, the whole experience clearly hits him hard. You can really feel for the guy when he walks off by himself with such a defeated look on his face.
