Tearjerker / Mobile Suit Victory Gundam

  • About halfway through the series, Uso and Marbet have been captured and are in a cell together. Having lost people near and dear to him, and dealing with the stresses of killing enemy pilots in space, Uso just breaks down and bawls. He stops being a Gundam hero and spends a few seconds being a scared little boy - just before the guards come to take him away again.
