** Actually, she didn't. It's pretty clear that Kamina is the one that turned it off.

* Meta example: The new opening that plays after episode 9 no longer has Kamina in focus, a somber reminder of his death in the previous episode.

** To elaborate on the scene from the movie, [[spoiler: [[MegaNekko Kinon]] has collapsed to the floor in a heap with her hands covering her face and her hat nearby, looking as if it fell off her with out her even noticing, [[GenkiGirl Kiyal]] is crying hysterically, her whole body shaking with the force of her sobs, and [[CoolBigSis Kiyoh]] is hanging on to Dayakka in a death grip, looking like she could collapse any minute if he let her go.]] Seeing just how much [[spoiler: Kittan's death]] affected each of them is almost too hard to watch. To top it off we don't hear any of them, only the triumphant music that started right as our heroes are processing the fact that they won...but at a cost.

* Episode 25: [[spoiler:Kittan's death]], because it was heart-wrenching in addition to being ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesomeMechaAnime completely awesome]]''. ** Shortly before that, when [[spoiler:the team discovers the Death Spiral Machine]], a slow piano-and-violin song[[note]]resembling one of the OneWomanWail sequences of ''Libera Me from Hell''[[/note]] plays in the background that doesn't appear in any OST releases. It accompanies the scene's dialogue so perfectly that [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome the emotional impact is like being hit in the chest with a sledgehammer]].

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xNnPmnkNzg This TTGL AMV]],set to "Welcome to the Black Parade". Compresses all the [[CrowningMomentOfAwesomeMechaAnime CMOAs]] and {{Tear Jerker}}s into 5-and-a-bit minutes and syncs them to a song that could have been ''written'' for the series--"He said / Son when / you grow up / would you be / the savior of the broken / the beaten and the damned?". The tears really flow at the end when it shows you [[spoiler: Nia's grave adorned with her wedding bouquet and veil]].

* In Episode 10, Simon [[spoiler: recalls a time in the past when he, Kamina, and several other people became trapped underground. He mentions that while he kept digging and digging desperately, quiet and fearful, Kamina kept on laughing and talking and joking in high spirits, keeping everyone cheerful throughout a situation that would terrify any sane person--and Simon wishes that he had the power that Kamina had to inspire people and keep them from giving up. Then, in Episode 11, there is a flashback to the night before Kamina died, when he and Yoko were "alone" under the moon. Kamina recalled the same incident to Yoko: while he was just fooling around and talking, Simon kept steadily drilling with his back to them, never stopping or taking a break, and eventually got them out of the cave-in... and so ''he'' wished that he could be like ''Simon''--"I wanted to be a man whose back would never break". For the ''mutual'' admiration that had existed between the two "brothers" all along, and for Simon's never having really recognized his own strength, however different it was from Kamina's, came dangerously close to completely breaking down in happy/sad tears at the latter flashback, and the CrowningMomentOfAwesome that followed.]]

* The one scene in Lagann-Hen when Nia [[spoiler:tells her body "Just a bit longer. Okay?". She knows that she can't hold out much more before she vanishes.]] After that [[spoiler:Nia hands Yoko her diary as a sort of farewell gift.]] The latter could also qualify as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. But once you realize [[spoiler:that Nia's diary was composed of letters to Kamina, Yoko's long deceased lover, it just makes the exchange even more bittersweet.]]

* The fact that Yoko turns off her LotusDreamerMachine of her own accord. That a single push of a button must have been about as painful as [[ComicBook/ForTheManWhoHasEverything tearing off her own arm]], yet she is the only member of the entire Gurren-dan to have escaped without any encouraging words from [[spoiler:Kamina's spirit]] or visions of Simon soaring through the skies.

** There is a certain kind of heartbreak in watching [[GetterRobo Ryouma]], the prototype to all HotBlooded mecha pilots, an obvious template that Kamina is based on, and a brother-in-arms to Kamina himself in the game, just... [[spoiler: screaming Kamina's name helplessly.]]
