* much of the ''Trigun Maximum'' manga, especially [[spoiler: Tesla's story and its impact on the twins, the post-apocalyptic world that follows Knives's collecting of most of the plants, the past of characters such as Nicholas D. Wolfwood, Livio, and Legato, and the ending of the manga -especially the powerfully symbolic (but potentially {{Narm}}-inducing) scene in which Vash and Knives fly away ''hugging'' each other]].
* The manga chapter where Vash resists getting stoned by villagers by using his power and terrifies Meryl due to her memories of his fight with Hopperd, to the point where she recoils in fear when he reaches out to her.
* [[spoiler: Vash crying and praying for God to do him one favor in the manga as he and Wolfwood sit in the ruins of Wolfwood's childhood home and share one last drink before Wolfwood dies. And as the children he just saved fly to safety, they get one last message to him: welcome home.]]

** Not to mention [[spoiler: the death of Rem.]]



* In the fourth episode, there's an entire ''city'' on the hunt for Vash... because it's the only way for them to get the plant operational again, due to lack of funds otherwise.
* In the fifth episode, after decades of planning her vengeance, Elizabeth gets her chance to shoot Vash for Lost July... but finds that she can't. And it's then that she realizes that [[spoiler:Vash had been the savior who sheltered her when she was orphaned.]]

*** And, later in the same episode, the fact that the townspeople [[spoiler: tie him to a freaking truck and drag him across the ground, despite the fact that he was severely wounded and hadn't done anything to hurt anyone in the town, all because of the horrible reputation he doesn't even deserve. The way he just takes the abuse is ''heartbreaking.'']]

** After [[spoiler:Wolfwood's death]], Vash is eating donuts in a lively, ordinary town, remarking at how wonderful being alive is and at all the people. [[spoiler:He then suddenly ''breaks down in tears'' as he thinks of all the horrible things that have happened to him, as well as the fact that many of his friends are now dead.]] And then [[FromBadToWorse Legato shows up]].

** I remember finding it ''really'' sad, but not crying. Then I saw poor [[spoiler: Milly and Meryl]] crying, and [[spoiler: Vash quietly and ''very'' seriously waiting outside]], and I couldn't stop the tears.
*** It always got to me when the big girl cried.



*** Let's not forget [[spoiler: Wolfwood [[CryCute crying]] and [[HeroicBSOD breaking down]] prior to all of this, and Milly [[CooldownHug hugging and comforting him]]. [[IntimatePsychotherapy And then some more]].]]. Doubles as CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, as much as the episode allows.
*** This Troper was holding up fairly well until [[MeaningfulEcho this line]]: [[spoiler:"I'm sorry, honey."]]

**** [[spoiler: This Troper didn't cry through Wolfwood's death, until the next chapter--[[http://manga.animea.net/trigun-maximum-chapter-67-page-13.html Vash's expression]] when he explains that he's buried Wolfwood.]]



** "These... are really good... * sniff* " I'm not going to be able to eat a donut again anytime soon.



* Vash being forced to [[spoiler:kill Legato execution-style, in the head, or risk the lives of Milly and Meryl.]] The look on his face [[spoiler:when being forced to, for the first time, willfully and knowingly kill someone]] was enough to shock this troper into tears, and to this day it comes to her as the most shocking and tense scene in the entire series.

* The episode "Goodbye, For Now," after Vash [[spoiler:blows a hole in the Fifth Moon with his Angel Arm and goes to live with Lina.]] The scene that struck this troper particularly hard was at the very end, when Vash is saying good-bye, and it shows (in a flashback) him in a dark alleyway, completely broken and scared of what he could do after the incident.
* I don't know why, but when [[spoiler: Vash and Knives fight as kids over killing the spider to save the butterfly. Vash's "I wanted to save them both."]] It just... sums up Vash. And I'm not sure why, but I feel a little teary when I see it.
* Nothing else in the Trigun movie especially got to me, until the very end, when you find out that [[spoiler: not only was Amelia Gasback's daughter, but she was only 19. If Vash hadn't let Gasback escape back then, she would have never been born.]]
** This troper was just fine with that...Until her husband mentioned that Amelia knew this, yet still hated the guy who allowed it. What must have happened in her life to make her prefer to have never lived? Guess this is Fridge Horror as well
