- Someone took Singing Telegram and put the BGM from Shenkai Summit. In the original song, Pinkie Pie is getting tired as she sings to each of her friends, but in this it makes it seem like she's slowly breaking down and crying.
- The story behind this picture. *sniff*
- Depending on which story you're reading, The Fluffy Ponies phenomenon can count as this.
- This memebase item is pretty melancholy.
- In general, it's pretty heartbreaking to see fellow bronies being made fun of; being called retarded manchildren from liking a "little girl's show", being told that they're furries who only watch it to "clop", etc. There was even a (true) story about a 15-year-old boy who's very own mother kicked him out of the house after she caught him watching the show. A lot of people step up to defend bronies, but it seems that as long as the show exists, bronies will be outcasts.
- ''Snowdrop'', from beginning to end. It's likely one of the most notable tearjerking fanworks in the fandom, along with My Little Dashie.
- This◊ story about Spike and Twilight was the first story to make this troper cry in almost ten years.
- The song I Am Octavia is one for any fan of Octavia and Vinyl Scratch.
- Lauren Faust says that she's "missing her four-legged girls". She must be really sad that she had to leave Hasbro.
- Kiki Havivy, a little girl who Tara Strong introduced the bronies to has sadly passed away after a long fight with cancer. The outpouring of condolences and support in light of this counts as well.
- Think the above story of a 15 year old being kicked out of his house for watching the show is the limit of sadness for Bronies? This story has an 11-year old fan of the show attempting suicide from being bullied so much for it.
- While not as horrible as Morones' attempted suicide, a school banned a boy named Grayson Bruce from wearing his Rainbow Dash backpack as they deemed it a target for bullying. That's right, instead of stopping the bullying, the school ENCOURAGED it. That is pathetic and sad at the same time.
- Lullaby for a Princess. A song about Celestia's regret for having ignored her sister and let her turn into Nightmare Moon. Then there's Luna's Reply, a song about about Luna's regret for having forced her sister to banish her. Then you put them together. Both are pleas for forgiveness and attempts to console each other. Thankfully, it turns heartwarming at the end.
- "No Choice Left", despite being an uplifting trance track, strongly evokes Celestia's grief after being forced to banish her sister to the moon for a thousand years.
- This Softer And Slower Cover of the Mane Theme, produced for the ending credits of Equestria Girls but rejected.
- Faded by Foozogz is slower and more somber than his previous works; its mood and title implying that he may be leaving the fandom.
