Tear Jerker: Stupid Mario Brothers
Link's death in Act 2 of the movie counts, especially since he was one of the more lovable characters the show had.
There's also Mario's heartfelt goodbye at the end of the series finale. Just the way he says it with such a sincere amount of gratitude, this scene struck home with many fans, especially ones who followed the series since it's first season.
