Tear Jerker / TV Tropes The Webcomic

  • Ere finding out she'll never see again.
  • Ere, again having just lost her cybernetic eyes, realizing that she just killed Retrope, and being left to die along with Report really got to this troper.
  • Ere (I'm seein' a pattern) after Report comes back into existence.
  • Ere immediately after this when Report apparenty dies via Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Ere when she finds out that Report is still alive.
  • A dying Sir Romra offering his helmet to Naharrud, so the latter could finally read all those books like he wanted.
  • Regnis's death. Oh God.
    "My song... and my love... don't forget them..."
    • Made even worse by the previous pages, where Gabe repeated tries to use his powers to heal her, repeatedly getting hit by his own Lightning but not giving up, only to fail in the end.
  • Ere (again) in the "Worst Case Scenario", only this time she killed Report with her own hands.
    • Even more heartbreaking when she and Neeuq make their way out of the factory and the normally graceful and competent Ere is completely disoriented, stumbling into every obstacle along the way but still refusing to let Neeuq help her carry Report's body.
    • Also, when she is dismembered and Left for Dead by Dab Gib and uses her only remaining hand to crawl over to Report's body and hug it before dying herself.
  • "Report... Ere... Father... I am sorry." *blam*
  • "I... I don't drink tea very often." Gets me every time.
  • A bit earlier than the rest of these, but I think everyone remembers this line
    Gib: I used to think the stars were worth looking at... not anymore.
  • As much as the fans hated him, the end of G'nignah was so savagely brutal that even hardened haters of the character felt bad for him.
    G'nignah: Heh... C-come on, guys... We all knew... this was... coming...
  • The reason Yug cannot use Tropes the way others can is finally revealed in the OREZ arc. he Took The Bullet for Dab from the barrel of Nightmare Fuel that corrupted Dab in the first place. Turns out that blocks off his wiki channels, meaning he is unable to manifest Tropes properly. Even worse, Dab was still infected, meaning his younger brother's near death and life-crippling debilitation ultimately failed to impact anything. Worse still, Yug is slowly succumbing to The Virus that he's been hiding from everyone.
