Tear Jerker: The Alamo
- When the Alamo defenders are informed that no reinforcements are coming.
- The death of the Parson in the John Wayne film.
- When Bowie receives word of his wife's death in the Wayne film. The whole thing is so heartbreaking that Travis apologizes for interrupting his mourning and offers his condolences.
- The Wayne version of the thirteenth day of the siege, watching Santa Anna's artillery kill several of the defenders as they're overwhelmed, including many of the minor characters, like Beekeeper and Dickinson. Travis brakes his own sword to deny it to the enemy before he's shot and killed. Crockett is killed in the chaos when he is run through by a lance and then blown up as he ignites the powder magazine. Bowie, still recovering from his earlier wounds, is shielded by his former slave friend Jethro and manages to kill several Mexicans but is eventually bayoneted and dies.
- "I hope they remember. I hope Texas remembers."
- The brutal death of Mexican General Manuel Castrillon in the 2004 film, especially since, throughout the film, he had tried to get Santa Anna to be more humane towards the rebels, even outright begging for him to spare Davy Crockett's life. His fate was most certainly undeserved.
