* The Anime Movie. The whole Godamn thing.
* "Father, are you out there? Eiko? Shinji? The baby's here, everybody! Can you see her? It's a girl! You were wrong Shinji! It's a girl! What's happening? Why? Why? Why? Why?! She's the prettiest girl in the whole wide world, ''and you never got to see her.''"
** The mother picking up her newborn daughter and raising her in the air slowly showing her the destruction of the bomb. "Take a good look around little one. You see? This is the war that killed your father, remember it."
** Also, when said baby girl dies, just as the two boys come back with food.
* The live-action adaptation has the father and Shinji, buried in the weight of their crumbled house, spending their final moments singing.
* The soldier carrying Gen on his back to get medical attention, passing by a few wells with bloated corpses inside. The soldier tells Gen that they'd ran into the water, thinking it would save them from the fire.
-->''That there is a boy and his little sister. He died trying to save her. And that woman there tried to protect her children by hugging them close to her. All in vain.''
* Most of the random civilians we see post-bombing are worth quite a few tears. The woman who thinks her son has reincarnated into a swarm of flies, the gang of orphan boys who all watched their own families die, the adolescent girl who wanted to be a dancer survives but with horrible burns on her face--she'd watched her mother die and walks among the corpses, checking their teeth for her mother's gold teeth, so she can bury her by her father...
