Tear Jerker: Deadliest Warrior
In the Saddam vs. Pol Pot episode, hearing Kilong Ung, a Cambodian genocide survivor, talk about his experience living under the Khmer Rouge. His parents and fifty other members of his extended family were killed.
The defeat of any warrior the viewer holds particularly dear to their heart. Cue sad music and montage of fallen warriors.
