Tear Jerker: Mad Max
- The deaths of Jessie and Sprog in the original film.
- The death of Dog in The Road Warrior, mostly in its pointlessness. His offscreen yelp makes it more sad.
- The fact that Max loses more and more with each passing film: Jessie, Sprog and Goose in the first film, his dog and the Pursuit Special in the second. Even his shotgun and jacket are taken from him in the third.
