Tear Jerker / Baki the Grappler

  • After Yujiro has beaten Baki into unconsciousness, decimated his friends, and killed his mother. Baki is walking through the streets, happily talking and joyfully describing how wonderful it is to be in such a loving family while carrying his mother on his back. A stranger bumps into him and reveals that he was imagining it all and is only carrying a ring while wearing the bruises and scrapes from his fight. He screams out, much to the dismay of the people on the street, fumbling after the ring that belonged to his mother. Crying, he laments.
    Baki: Not just yet, mister. Let me hold onto this for just a moment longer.
    • Much more intense in the manga, where he isn't carrying his mom's ring. He's carrying his mom's corpse.
  • Emi's final moments with her son Baki; they're probably the only time Baki will ever have a (somewhat) normal parent-son relationship. You WILL hate Yujiro afterwards.
  • Baki visiting Yasha Ape after their fight. He realizes that the Yasha Ape wasn't just a vicious predator, but a creature with its own culture, as shown by Yasha's cave filled with his ancestors' skeletons, and that Yasha is likely the last of his kind. Baki apologizes for misjudging it, and Yasha gives Baki one of his own fangs as a gift. Even more of a tearjerker, when Yujiro taunts Baki with a box with Yasha's head inside, and then proceeds to eviscerate it to pieces with one decisive strike.
