* ''ComicBook/IKillGiants'': The main character has spent an indefinite amount of her young life preparing to battle a giant in order to save her mother. [[spoiler:We are lead to believe that this and all supernatural aspects of the story are simply in her head and her mother is simply dying of cancer. Then a TITAN (they're like a hundred times worse than giants) attacks. She fights it and, against all odds [[CrowningMomentofAwesome wins.]] Then the titan tells her, he was never coming for her mother, but for her. Her mother is simply dying of cancer. There's nothing she can do.]]

* The comic ''ComicBook/{{Maus}}'' by Creator/ArtSpiegelman is already based on a [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII tragic, horrible period in time]], but the last page is especially moving.

* {{Franchise/Godzilla}}
** Kingdom of Monsters, six little words [[spoiler: "You took my children from me!"]]
* The story entitled ''Karabouilla'' in Belgian comic book ''Docteur Poche''. [[WholeEpisodeFlashback Doctor Michel Poche recalled the reason why he became a doctor]]. During his childhood, he had a foster brother named Robert, who was black and from Africa. They were true brothers, doing everything together from playing, eating to studying. Michel always protected Robert from racist attacks and they were happy together. When they became teenagers, a new classmate came to school, a Vietnamese girl named Thi Hué. [[LoveTriangle They became friends with her and over time, both fell in love with her]]. Thi Hué became closer to Robert and [[CrazyJealousGuy Michel secretly became jealous]]. [[spoiler:One day at the beach, Michel couldn't take it anymore and [[CockFight physically attacked his brother]] and [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero used the "N" word]]. Thi Hué cried and ran away from the scene, but she didn't saw a speeding car coming and got hit. She was taken to the hospital where she died. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Michel realized in horror that everything that happened was his fault]]. Grief-stricken, he took off on his bike. When he returned home later, there was a letter from Robert waiting for him. Robert wrote that he forgave him for Thi Hué's death, but couldn't forgave him for the racial insult. He therefore left and returned to Africa. This tragedy motivated Michel into becoming a doctor, and in a way, pay for his sins. He still miss his brother to this day.]] It was a sad and powerful story for a children book.

** You're joking about that last one, right? Jhonen certainly was. Sorry, it's hard to tell without SarcasmMode.
* [[ComicBook/SinCity "I got 'em good for you, didn't I, Goldie?"]]
** Also, little Nancy telling Hartigan: "Still alive and still a virgin. All thanks to you."

* A comic novel named ''Laika''. Oh my gosh. It was a rather fictionalized account of Laika the real dog (but still containing some truth), and she honestly had some ''really'' tough stuff going through. Because her owners couldn't afford to take care of her they gave her up as a puppy... to a kid's mother who wanted him to learn responsibility. He didn't want the dog and ''locked her in a closet'' and refuse to feed her. Then he finally took her for a walk, said she ran away and threw her in the river. My ''god'' was that kid cruel! That dog ''loved'' him!! And he just threw her out the window! The girl who owned Laika's birth mother (and her mother) regretted giving her away, and hoped she was safe. But it's not over... she was a stray for awhile and learned to forage on her own from another dog. Then the dogcatcher caught Laika and killed the other dog by stomping on its head. Because the shelter was full, Laika was going to be put to sleep but was saved and given to the animal behavior scientist. And she fell in love with Laika and the other dogs, and there are parts where it seems like Laika and the other dogs are ''speaking'' to the woman themselves. And as you all know... Laika died in orbit, as she did in the book and the behavior scientist just coudln't take it anymore and resigned from the space project, while everyone else who knew Laika died after only 5 hours said "...nobody knows about this..." obviously they regretted it too. Then in a final twist of fate, she walks by ''the girl who originally had Laika as a puppy'' and was apparntly on first-name terms with her too. Oh my gosh, if only she knew the girl wanted her dog's puppy back... the illustrations showing the dog being sealed up in a rocket for over twelve hours before launch and finally dying of asphyxiation would be hard on ''any'' dog owner who has ''ever'' had a dog who just wanted to be with you.

** The sequence with the small boy waiting for his Dad.
*** The boy is sitting amongst the rubble when Spidey comes up to him. When asked what he's doing there, the boy replies that he's waiting for his father. The next panel shows firemen carrying his father out, clearly dead. His response..."DADDY!!!".*sob*

** This one was almost certainly pinched from one of the most famous, and gutting TearJerker moments in the Erich Maria Remarque novel and classic film ''All Quiet on the Western Front''. Steal from the best!
** Glyph. No-one being able to remember it's existence even after it died to save Halo's life.

* "When the Wind Blows", good Lord, it was nothing but Tear Jerker. The worst bit of it was how completely ignorant the couple in the story are of their fate while the reader is sobbing on their behalf.
