* The other BrokenAce, Ryou/Zane, was just as heartbreaking. Used to be respectful despite his stoic and aloof behavior, he finally [[FreakOut snapped]] after a humiliating loss and [[BloodKnight willing to do anything]] to [[SeriousBusiness achieve victory]] even at the expense of [[KickTheDog his little brother]]. Syrus is left heartbroken that he couldn't save his big brother. [[spoiler: Ryo gets better, but it's still sad to see the once respectable Kaiser bounded to a chair.]]

* The other BrokenAce, Ryou/Zane, was just as heartbreaking. Used to be respectful despite his stoic and aloof behavior, he finally [[FreakOut snapped]] after a humiliating loss and became [[BloodKnight willing to do anything]] to [[SeriousBusiness achieve victory]] even at the expense of [[KickTheDog his little brother]]. Syrus is left heartbroken that he couldn't save his big brother. [[spoiler: Ryo gets better, but it's still sad to see the once respectable Kaiser bounded to a chair.]]



** Ryo is more mentally balanced in season 3, but he suffers ''physically'' throughout it. He spends most of the season trying to find a perfect duel that will take everything he has, [[DeathSeeker fully aware that he may not survive it]]. His heart condition takes a massive toll on him before the duel with Yubel even starts, and he collapses more than once, but he [[SecretlyDying refuses to tell anyone]] because he [[DontYouDarePityMe doesn't want to be rescued]]. His determination and refusal to give up before the end of that final duel is both his CrowningMomentOfAwesome and a TearJerker of the highest order.
** His death scene somehow takes it even further, especially when Jaden promises that he'll "shine even brighter and make a miracle", and Zane responds, "I'm sure... everyone who died... wanted that too". In the dub, Jaden futilely tells him to hold on, saying that Syrus needs his big brother, and Zane replies that "he's got one" before telling Syrus that he's proud of him. Add that to the images of him that appear in the sky (Hell Kaiser, then him at Duel Academy, and finally him as a child), and Syrus's sobbing going on and on...
** He only appears in two episodes of Season 4, but it's painful to watch him in his condition. His heart condition has finally caught up with him, and even the powerful will that let him [[{{Determinator}} fight through it]] last season can't keep him on his feet. Not to mention the reveal later in the season that his brother apparently resents the living hell out of him for needing a caretaker.



* [[spoiler: Zane dies]]. Especially when Jaden promises that he'll "''shine even brighter and make a miracle''", and Zane says [[spoiler: "''I'm sure... everyone who died... wanted that too''"]]. And then with Syrus's sobbing going on and on...

* From Season 4, Episode 178: Yubel being forced [[spoiler: to attack Juudai head-on by Darkness]]. The look on her face as she's forcibly dragged across the arena an inch at a time is absolutely heartbreaking. Followed by a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when Juudai [[spoiler: takes her hand and vows "I'll get you back, no matter what!"]]
* Fubuki [[spoiler: screaming for Asuka after she's lost to Darkness]].
* From the manga, when Midori [[spoiler:realizes she has to sacrifice the possibility of getting information on her younger brother Koyo's coma out of Reggie to prevent Judai from having to duel her, accompanied by a mental vision of Koyo telling her she's doing the right thing. She's unable to win, though, and collapses, comatose in front of Judai]].

** His [[KickTheDog duel against Syrus]] in season 2 gets even more heartbreaking when you realize that Syrus only kept hold of his ideals because Jaden was there to support him. If Zane had had ''one single person'' who still believed in him by the time he ended up in the Underground, he might not have broken.
