Tear Jerker: Clock Tower
  • From the third game, poor little May and her horrible Family-Unfriendly Death. And of course Albert and his blind mother. When Albert gives her the shawl, only to be violently murdered moments later I just bawled. Then of course there's Phillip's death scene. It doesn't make this troper cry in and of itself, but Nancy's line just before it, "Phillip darling! Father! Alyssa has laughed for the first time!" think about it.
    • And seeing Alyssa's mother dying right in front of her. The worst part was Alyssa and Dennis totally downplaying it in the ending.
  • Lotte's Heroic Sacrifice in the first game.
  • Also from the first game, Jennifer finding her father's corpse is a combination of this and terrifying.
  • The way certain endings yank poor Jennifer's chain. If you reach the clock tower without triggering a death scene for at least one of your friends, you can find the other survivor waiting there for you... and then, if you haven't earned the S rank, Diabolus ex Machina rears its ugly head. To have Jennifer come so close, and yet so far...
  • From Clocktower 3, the scene leading up to the final level. Alissa has soothed the spirits of the ancient rooders who were slain in previous Rituals of Engagement and after maybe or maybe not being dead, Nancy finally reunites with Alissa....Only to be ripped away by the Dark Gentleman who then teleports Alissa back to the clocktower. Hearing Alissa crying out for her mother once she realizes that she's been taken again is just heartbreaking.
  • Also from Clocktower 3, Finding out that in the intervening time between reuniting with Nancy after defeating Chopper and making it up to the top of the clocktower, Dick has sealed Nancy's soul into a statue. As if that wasn't bad enough, he then obliterates the statue just to rub salt into the wounds. unfortunately for him, this pushes Alissa to her breaking point and she fully embraces her role as a Rooder, And Nancy is still able to give Alissa the power she needs to finish off Lord Burroughs and Dick for good and save her mother's soul.
  • The forth game has lot of it. Many cutscenes show you how lives of lovely people were ruined by your stalker.
