* X-Men: The Animated Series, episode "Bloodlines": Mystique comes out to Nightcrawler, pleading for understanding if not forgiveness, Kurt promises to pray that she will find the strength to forgive herself, and then Raven does the ONLY UNSELFISH THING IN HER ENTIRE LIFE when her other son Graydon turns up and tries to shoot them both; she shields Kurt and takes both bullets herself, and Kurt cries out "MOTHER!"; and the ending when Mystique watches Kurt and Rogue walking away, and cries; if you are not howling like a baby by this time, you are made of STONE!

* The ''HeyArnold'' ChristmasEpisode. So many things to nominate, so little time... The ending may well require a box of tissues, depending on your constitution.
** Arnold's neighbor Mr. Hyunh, trying to escape the Vietnam War with his toddler daughter Mai, ran to the American embassy only to find one more person was allowed on the last helicopter going to America. After giving up Mai to the Americans, he came to Arnold's city to find her but couldn't do it. At the end, as everyone is exchanging Christmas gifts and Arnold feels terrible for not being able to find her, the doorbell rings...to reveal Mai, who was found by one of Arnold's friends. Ten years later and the tears come out every time it comes on TV.
*** The ''HeyArnold'' ChristmasEpisode. ''The whole thing.'' The worst part is probably Arnold's neighbor's description of how he lost his daughter in the war, and how he specifically came to [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield the city]] to look for her--but he'd more or less settled into life there and given up. [[spoiler: Arnold manages to reunite them in the end.]]
** When Helga finally gets the perfect present combined with the love and attention from her parents (instead of the usual jerkass filled home life), she realises that she has to give it up to [[spoiler: re-unite Mr Hyuh with his daughter]] and then she realises, after spending all that time trying to find the present that would make Arnold fall in love with her, that this would be the greatest thing she could do for them all and make them happiest. So she gives it all up and takes no credit for it, giving them [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming a proper Christmas miracle]] and [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption yet again]] ends up with her love for Arnold unrecognised, standing alone in the snow.
-->'''Helga''' ''(smiling tearfully)'': Merry Christmas, Arnold.
-->'''Roll Credits'''.
** Any episode that delves into Helga's home life is gonna be a tear jerker. The flashback to her first day of preschool -- which launched both her fixation on Arnold and her tendency towards bullying -- in "Helga On the Couch" breaks my heart every time.
** The episode where Olga is engaged and Helga finds out that the fiance is a JerkAss. Helga finding ''empathy'' for Olga, whom she's always envied and pushed away because of that, always gets me.
*** She even called him out, then told him to just walk away. AND THEN she forged a note from him to prevent her sister's heart from breaking more than she knew it would...*[[SandInMyEyes ''sniff'']]* [[ManlyTears BE STRONG, BE STRONG]]!
** The end of the Pigeon Man episode, in a bittersweet way - [[spoiler: yeah, the Pigeon Man has to leave for another town, but thanks to Arnold, he's learned that some people CAN be trusted, and he's hopeful that maybe there'll be another person as accepting as Arnold wherever he ends up]].
*** It was originally gonna be even ''more'' heartbreaking [[spoiler: the Pigeon Man was gonna commit ''suicide'' instead of being carried away by his pigeons]]. Luckily, they decided that would be too dark, but even so...
** It's a bit dark, but Arnold attacking the guy looking for a bus stop in "Mugged". The poor guy was beaten and humiliated just for trying to ask for help and looking a little intimidating. Arnold's shame and embarrassment and the man's sadness and confusion are just so relatable.
** The Parents Day Episode is a tear jerker in itself, especially the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9c3CP1I1kg0 music in the ending credits.]]
*** A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e05Y_IyB_Dg rearrange of this music]] is played in the end of "The Journal" episode. The HopeSpot at the end will surely make you get teary.The music itself doesn't help at all,it was heartrending.
*** And it's truly a HopeSpot for the viewers as well since that's where the series ends, and there's absolutely no chance of it being followed up on.

* Though much more lighthearted than the 2003 version listed next, the original ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' still has its moments of this. One of the most memorable is the episode "Turtles, Turtles Everywhere." Shredder and Krang reprogram a network of robotic garbage trucks and order them to capture "the turtles." With no knowledge of the TMNT, the trucks start rounding up every turtle in the city, and eventually what is said to be the last surviving member of an endangered sea turtle species, just as she was about to lay her eggs. One of the reasons it's such a great episode is that, unique among shows in TheEighties, it's actually a GreenAesop ''done right.'' Unlike ''CaptainPlanet'' villains and much more similar to real-world polluters, Shredder and Krang aren't actually intending to damage the environment as its own end; they're just greedy and don't care if it's a side-effect. At the end of the episode, they [[spoiler: put a stop to the plan and return the sea turtle to the beach to finish laying her eggs and the resident joker ''Michelangelo'' starts sobbing as she swims off saying that she reminds him of his mother.]] Also, while they attempt to end the episode on a humorous note after that bit, it actually becomes sadder when rewatching it as an adult, when you can think about it enough to worry that even though [[spoiler: the sea turtle got to lay her eggs after all, based on April's claim that she was the last surviving member of her species, the eggs might not have been fertilized. So she could still be the last of her kind, ever.]]
