Tear Jerker / Astérix

  • When Asterix is exiled from the village in Asterix and the Cauldron. Ends up as a Heartwarming Moment when Obelix follows him.
  • In the lower left corner of the last panel of Asterix in Belgium, a passing rabbit is sadly looking at Goscinny's signature—Goscinny died during the making of that book.note 
  • The scene where Asterix, Obelix, and Getafix return to the village in Asterix Conquers America. The entire place is in ruins and devoid of life, and Obelix is running around desperately calling out to his friends.
    Obelix: Oh- oh no! Vitalstatistix! Unhygienix! Where are you? Ca-can't you hear me!?
  • A meta-example: Uderzo drew this sad picture of the main trio in mourning, to honor the memories of the victims of a brutal terrorist attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo's office in January 2015. This drawing was also made in 1977 as a response to Goscinny's death.
