Tear Jerker / LEGO Adaptation Game
Traveller's Tale Games tries harder to make their videogame adaptations as cheerful and funny as possible even in the most emotional moments of certain film sagas, though they don't always skip those tissue-in-hand scenes always.
- The cutscene that plays after defeating the Emperor in LEGO Star Wars II. Nearly every other scene is played for laughs, but the death of Anakin and Luke's final goodbye to him are played heart-breakingly straight.
- Gandalf the Grey, Boromir, Théoden... each major character death in Lord of the Rings is played very faithfully to its movie counterpart (complete with dialogue from the films), and they're all heartbreaking as a result.
- All except one - when you play through Helm's Deep, you'll see Haldir duelling an Uruk-hai atop the wall. No matter how quickly you climb up there, the orc will kill the elf. Haldir doesn't have a cutscene, dialogue, or anything - he just dies during the level and there's no way to save him. What a Player Punch.
- In the final cutscene of the last Jurassic Park level, John Hammond, like in the film, puts the same melancholic face before he leaves the island, realizing how his dream of creating a dinosaur park has failed. Even Alan Grant gets him from his arm to go inside the helicopter.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
- Even though Agent Coulson is secretly Spared by the Adaptation due to Faking the Dead, the handling of his death scene from the first movie is incredibly powerful.
- After the last battle of Ultron, just like in the film, Hulk hijacks a Quinjet and decides to leave the team including Black Widow, however, in LEGO form, it's even more sadder because The Lonely Man from the The Incredible Hulk is the background music.
