Tear Jerker / That Guy with the Glasses

  • SANTA CHRIST!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Even more heartbreaking is the look on The Nostalgia Critic's face when he realizes just who he's just shot...
    • That guy is way too good at looking crushed. I never noticed until it was pointed out but his inaudible "oh" and looking like he was about to cry when Ask That Guy left him to get beaten up broke me. Even if you don't subscribe to the fanon that they're incestuous twins and that he gets tortured regularly, it's still heartbreaking to see him hoping to be saved and get it dashed that quickly.
  • Suede's Goodbye video (prior to him leaving, though he's back now.)
  • In Sad Panda's video of the "Top Five John Frusciante songs", the top is "Time Tonight". To make the depressing song even worse, he has cameos from the TGWTG crew tearing up at it. Lupa cuddling her puppy, Todd alone, Doug's Tearful Smile, two contributors holding each other... you wanna give 'em all hugs.
  • Seeing everyone depressed and panicky over SOPA possibly passing. And you can't really deny that the idea of maybe never seeing these funny, amazing people ever again is horrifying.
  • The fallout of Nash and Hope's breakup made Twitter, TGWTG Secrets AND The Secret Treehouse a dark place for almost half a year in 2013.
  • The loss of Justin Carmical, aka JewWario. He will be missed.
  • Watch any anniversary special. Most of the people seen there aren't on the site anymore.
  • Arguably the departure of Obscurus Lupa. Putting the reason she was let go aside, it's a shame to see her go, especially even more when due to the heavy Internet Backdraft, Holly, LordKaT, Spoony, and especially Phelous went on full blown rage mode and added more drama to Channel Awesome's dwindling recover. Especially more with Phelan.
    • To put that into perspective: Spoony was agreeing with LordKaT on something. That's how mad everyone is.
