* The scene after Zane [[BigDamnHeroes rescues Syrus from Devil Dozer]] is a mix of heartwarming and tearjerking. Their relationship is obviously (and [[KickTheDog for]] [[ElectricTorture good]] [[BigBrotherBully reason]]) strained and Zane is incapable of being nice, but he does encourage Syrus to watch over Jaden if the friendship is still important to him. In his own [[NoSocialSkills socially-inept way]]. On the tear-jerking side, Zane asks why Syrus was willing to stand up to him last year, but not to Jaden now... and then says, "Maybe you're better off without him. Just like you're better off without me." Zane knows he's dying. One last time, he's trying to protect his brother from how much of a wreck his own life is.

* Professor Viper's backstory is heartbreaking, despite how he had been, you feel for him when his adopted son dies. [[spoiler: And then Yubel lied about resurrecting him. The Japanese version just twisted the nail further into the coffin when Yubel changes Viper's memories so that he thinks his son is still alive, walking off the tall platform everyone is standing on to his own ''death''.]]

* Syrus in season 3. After losing his big brother emotionally, he now faces the same situation with his best friend.''best friend''. By the end of Season 3, the viewer clearly sees Syrus in tears, wanting Jaden back after everything that went down. He clearly regrets how he treated Jaden and his mere ''expression'' at the thought of Jaden sacrificing himself in Episode 155 was '''heart wrenching'''. The fact that the Japanese version had Syrus revert to his original "ANIKI!" (especially after a few dozen episodes of his calling Jaden merely by name with a monotone voice) when emotionally calling out to Jaden sold it. Thankfully, it turned Heartwarming when Jaden eventually returned, but with Season 4 and Jaden's distance, their relationship will never be the same again.

** Also, the build-up to said breakdown. It was really apparent that Jesse's loss in the first dimension took its toll on Jaden, and each dimension saw Jaden get more reckless, just wanting to find his friend. The new 'death with a loss in a duel' made things harder, because then duels weren't even fun anymore. Jaden had to keep fighting, and by the time he faces Brron, he reaches his limit when his friends are sacrificed, putting on a stoic front for the sake of not breaking down. It was only with '''Syrus''' calling him out on his recklessness that he finally snaps.

* 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.]]

** 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.

* 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.
