[[redirect:TearJerker/ClockTower]]* Lotte's HeroicSacrifice in the first game.
** And the fact that no matter what you do, you can ''never'' save Lotte.
* Also from the first game, Jennifer [[spoiler: finding her father's corpse]] is a combination of this and terrifying.
** The background music for that scene, [[ Cradle Under The Star]] (titled after the [[spoiler: bedroom Dan is found in]]), doesn't help as it only enhances the tragic factor - it's a loaded-with-reverb version of the main theme, meant to play up the general feeling of hopelessness regarding Jen's discovery - and does a good job showing the urgency of the situation and the importance of the reveal overshadowing the girl's feelings as she doesn't even have the right time to cope with them. [[TheWoobie Somebody give that poor girl a hug!]]
* The way certain endings [[YankTheDogsChain yank poor Jennifer's chain]]. If you reach the clock tower without triggering a death scene for at least one of your friends, you can find the other survivor waiting there for you... and then, if you haven't earned [[GoldenEnding the S rank]], DiabolusExMachina rears its ugly head. To have Jennifer come so close, and yet so far...
** But no matter what, even if you achieve S doesn't matter, because it isn't canon. Jennifer's friends are doomed to die, no matter what you do.
