* The spirit of Jasmine's mother appearing to Jasmine in The Forests of Silence, and Jasmine's reaction to it. Here's a girl's who hasn't cried for a long time, and she's reduced to tears at the sight of her dead mother's spirit. There's also the obvious grief she masks when she's telling the story of her parents' capture to Lief and Barda. In fact, the entire story Jasmine tells is one big tearjerker when you think about it. Lief's realisation that Jasmine probably has not cried for a very long time only adds to the emotion.
* Jasmine's grief at having to send Kree back to the Forests in The Lake of Tears, when she, Lief and Barda are moving into Thaegan's territory. The two men see how upset Jasmine is at it, no matter how much she tries to hide it, and the mood is visibly dampened by it.
* In ''Dread Mountain'', Jasmine's sadness over not being able to dream of her father and see whether he is alive or not, and all because she cannot remember his face. Though she tries to act as if it's no big deal, you can see that her heart is breaking over it. And her words make it all the more tearjerking, as she chooses to think of her father as dead because she cannot bear to think of what he may have suffered in the Shadowlands. Come the end of the series, it's clear that her father did suffer ''a lot'', and Jasmine was probably right when she said that it would just torment her if she knew.
* Lief and Barda's grief over Jasmine's seemingly imminent death after she is hit by one of the Dread Gnomes' poisoned arrows. Also doubles as a heartwarming moment, as you can see just how much they have come to care about Jasmine since they first met her in the Forests of Silence.
* Jasmine and Lief's grief over Barda dying from his gripper field wounds in ''Return to Del''.
* Towards the end of ''Return to Del'', Doom [[spoiler: regains his memory, realizing that Jasmine is his daughter]]. As he is partially unconscious, he starts crying and repeating conversations that he had with his dead wife, as Jasmine sobs beside him. Having two of the most stoic characters in the series break down is not an easy read.
** I have something in both of my eyes...
** It literally made this troper cry, and I don't cry while reading books as a rule. Especially when he begins conversing with his dead wife and Past!Jasmine and barely hears her when she tries to talk to him, and they are both crying, and I think I'll go bury my face in a towel.
** The anime version is just as heartwrenching…
** The look in Doom's eyes when he talks of Anna being dead is heartbreaking.
* The moment when Lief's father sees Doom/[[spoiler: Jarred]] on the Place of Punishment. It never fails to bring tears, especially considering what happens soon afterwards.
[[folder: Series 2 ]]
* The death of [[spoiler: Glock.]]
* The revelation of what happened to the Aurons: [[spoiler: They built a magic dome that kept out the monsters and resembled Pirra as it was, but it could only keep existing if those living within it believed that the illusion was truth and said nothing that contradicted it. The population eventually split into two groups, one who built rafts to live on and flourished, and the island-dwellers, whose number dwindled because kids were too impulsive and couldn't understand the necessity of lying. By the time Lief and co enter, there's one island-dweller left, and he's desperately trying to cling onto the past. And he dies horribly.]]
* Jasmine's horror and grief at discovering that the sister she believed was trapped in the Shadowlands was actually a phantom designed to make her go to the Shadowlands and cause Lief to follow her there. The realisation that Faith cares nothing for her is truly heartbreaking, and also Jasmine's reaction to her revelation. Jasmine ''screams''.

* [[spoiler: The death of Doran the Dragonlover.]] We spend two series learning more about this courageous posthumous character. [[spoiler:And then it turns out he wasn't dead, but trapped in a particularly cruel form of AndIMustScream. Doran flat out says that death is far better than what can be called life. And he asks Veritas, one of his oldest friends to kill him.]]
* Verity's ultimate fate in ''Isle of the Dead''. It's revealed that she was killed by Laughing Jack on the day of the Shadow Lord's invasion, during an impassioned fit of rage on Jack's part. She was only seventeen. She then spends the next eighteen years in a cursed half-state as a figurehead on board the Lady Luck.
* [[spoiler: Josef's death, and Lief, Doom and Ranesh's guilt over it.]]
* Lief being reprimanded by the spirits of Del's fallen. The spirit of Josef appears and only shakes its head as if saying there's nothing left for him to do.
* Lief seeing Sharn dying in front of him from the 'Toran Plague'.
[[folder: General ]]
* While he was still evil, the anime version of the former Jalis knight Gorl still managed to come across as a very tragic character.
* The anime had (believe it or not) Thaegan and her children, in the group's (minus Ichabod) final appearance. The part when Thaegan committed her SuicideAttack and her children didn't want to be left behind was sweet in itself. Then when she asked them why they did it, they tell her they just wanted to be with their mother. If that doesn't start the water works the fact that their deaths created a lovely rainbow will.
** Speaking of Ichabod, his death scene is him refusing help from Lief before dying and joining the souls of his family.
* Sorcerer Oacus's death was surprisingly tearjerking, considering he didn't even regret any of his actions. When he tells the heroes that the're fighting in vain, and that the Shadow Lord is too powerful to defeat he actually sounds slightly sad. Not to mention the part when he confesses that he was once a human, then he bursts into flames... talk about ''sad''.
* The death of [[spoiler: Lief's father Endon]].
* The fate of the sorceror Dann in the Three Doors trilogy. He spent the rest of his life trapped in the Fell Zone in Weld's past, unable to return to Weld or see any of his friends or family again. And all because his ''best friend'' and advisor betrayed him by locking him out of the city.
