* The episode of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' when Jack finally lifts the curse from the Norse Warrior.....only for the warrior's aging to catch up with him. In a beautiful scene, Valkyries take the warrior up in a shaft of light, followed by Jack carving "FREE" into the stone tablet of his story. This editor burst into tears.

* From ColumbiaCartoons, there's the 1937 short "Literature/TheLittleMatchGirl". Here, we are presented the DyingDream of a lonely orphan girl, mocked and ignored by the world around her, cold, ragged and starving, with only her matches to keep her warm--and her dreams of happiness. Not long in the short, we get a dose of SweetDreamsFuel, showing the girl prancing around in a Heaven-like setting, where she finally finds good clothes and happiness through a doll the cherubs gave her as a present. But like the match that was keeping her warm in real life, the dream comes crumbling down in a gut-wrenching sequence where the utopian setting is torn apart by a strong wind, quickly snapping the girl back to reality, where she desperately crawls to the burning match--only to ''freeze to death''. But fear not, for the girl ''finally'' gets her happy ending, when an angel descends and carries her soul off to Heaven, leaving us with ringing bells and a starry night sky. This cartoon is hands down one of the most emotionally powerful cartoons ever made during TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation. But you know what's even sadder? This cartoon lost the 1937 UsefulNotes/AcademyAward to Disney's technically superior but nowhere near as powerful SillySymphonies short "WesternAnimation/TheOldMill".

* ''TheAdventuresOfMarkTwain'': In the end of the "The Diary of Adam and Eve" segment, Adam and Eve, now both old and frail, write in their respective diaries how they both wish they'll be the first one to die, since neither of them wants to be alone in the world. [[spoiler:Eve dies first, leaving Adam mourning.]]

* Surprisingly, even ''SuperFriends'' had one of these. Unsurprisingly, it happened in the somewhat DarkerAndEdgier last season (''Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians'')... as the first animated rendition of Bruce Wayne's loss of his parents.

* [[spoiler: Newton and Kimmy's breakup]] from SymBionicTitan. Made horribly horribly worse when you realize [[spoiler: he was so distraught by making her cry that he was almost killed by the MonsterOfTheWeek and he did ''everything'' he could to get to the prom with her.]] ** And ''one episode later,'' [[spoiler: Octus' death.]] It was foreshadowed all throughout the episode, so everyone saw it coming...but then when it actually happened, it was still a punch to the gut that reduced everyone to tears.
