Just like humans, monsters can be emotional, too.... Monster Tears is when a monster or monsters (especially The Undead) cries; this not only makes the monster Not So Stoic, but more sympathetic as well, especially if the monster is a witch, werewolf, ghost, skeleton, etc. If the monster's an alien, expect him or her shrieking, "My Eyes Are Leaking!" If the monster's a vampire, expect him or her to cry Tears of Blood. May overlap with a Monster Sob Story to make it more of a Tear Jerker. Compare: Not So Stoic, Tender Tears, My Eyes Are Leaking, Tears from a Stone.
