* Even TheStinger has a whiff of happy tearjerker to it. Marshmallow tries on the tiara Elsa abandoned and reigns over the ice palace alone; this suggests Elsa can take her love with her (Olaf) and tame her anger and fear (Marshmallow) but there's a part of her that will always yearn to be alone, shut off from the promise of happiness and human warmth, and who [[TraumaCongaLine can blame her after what she has been through? On the other hand, Marshmallow can live whatever life he wishes (just like his creator), and even gets to be ''king'' of an ice palace! Maybe Elsa will come back and conjure up some brothers and sisters for him one day.

Added DiffLines:

** The line "I am one with the wind and sky" makes one wonder what it was like for Elsa inside the castle, having to restrict herself from releasing her powers.


''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is one [[TearJerker emotionally grueling]] and heartbreaking film. Its many tragic moments and sequences earn it a place as one of [[TearJerker/{{Disney}} Disney's]] saddest and most moving ever made.

** Dammit, the ''whole song'' becomes a tearjerker when watching the movie again. You KNOW the twist, you KNOW Hans is playing Anna, and you KNOW he's going to betray her and leave her to die. To see Hans expressing his love so passionately and KNOW [[BreakTheCutie it's a lie]]... *grabs tissue box*



** It's made even worse by the fact that the words "a chance to change my lonely world" was, originally going to be: "a chance to leave my sister's world", where Anna blamed Elsa for it all.

** At "Don't let them in..." it's clear that Elsa is emulating her father, telling her never to reveal her ice powers, and the lines of that section are a sad CallBack to "Do you Want to Build a Snowman?" and Elsa's part of "For the First Time in Forever". It really shows how deeply her suppression has affected her, being told that such behavior was "being the good girl [she] always had to be", and how happy she is to let her abilities go.

** This adds another level of tearjerking to "Let It Go" when Elsa says they'll never see her cry. Notice how on the totally frozen body of Anna there are thin deposits of fine ice around her eyes. It's possible Anna's crying as well.

* Anna's story too. Even though she didn't grow up with a deep-seated fear of herself, as her sister did, she still grew up ''alone''. Throughout her childhood, we don't see her interacting with anyone but ''the pictures on the walls''. Presumably, when her parents weren't taking care of royal matters, they were spending time with Elsa, trying to help her learn to conceal her powers. Anna, on the other hand, was left completely alone, not even knowing the secret the rest of her family knew.

** An easily-overlooked moment: after Elsa has fled Arendelle, Anna blames ''herself'' for what happened. Despite not ever knowing of her sister's powers before, she has walked on eggshells so much over the years that when Elsa can no longer keep her secret, Anna takes all the fault onto herself:

* When, as children, Elsa accidentally hits Anna, the way she screams ''"Anna!"'' is distressing. She was doing a FutileHandReach but an ice blast came out of her hand and struck Anna. Then she runs up to her and starts crying over her, which foreshadows Elsa crying over Anna being frozen solid. Elsa screams ''"Mama! Papa!"''.

** Elsa had always been isolated mostly for her own protection, but interpreted it as being to protect others from her. Finding out that she's triggered an 'eternal winter' over her kingdom, and then thinking she's killed her own sister - both the very things she was trying to prevent - leaves her completely shattered. She's lived with the guilt of almost killing her sister since they were children, and was probably reminded of it every time she saw the white streak in Anna's hair. Thinking Anna is dead because of her isn't just horrible, it's her greatest fear coming true.]]

** Even worse, it's heavily implied Elsa doesn't go to their parents' funeral because she's dealing with her EmotionalPowers, and there's a very conspicuous empty space next to Anna. Imagine not only not being able to comfort your little sister after a funeral for your own parents, but not even being able to ''go'', for fear of hurting someone else you love.

* Elsa's story in general. She and Anna used to be really close until she almost accidentally killed Anna. Horrified, As if that wasn't traumatic enough, when the trolls try to warn her about using caution with her powers, the head troll accompanies the warning "Fear will be your enemy" with a vision of people attacking her future self. Her parents then attempt to protect her from such a fate by isolating her and teaching her to conceal her powers. All of this ends up making her afraid of her own magic, which she cuts off their relationship and her social life until previously enjoyed. When her powers were revealed and fled are eventually revealed, she flees her kingdom in utter fear and shame.



** It's established that she spent her childhood locked inside the castle too, also not making friends, and rejected constantly by her sister/best buddy with no idea ''why''. If her anguished question later - "What did I ever do to you?!" - is any indicator, she likely believes Elsa just started hating her one day, and despite all her attempts, she could never find out why or try to make up for it.

** The death of the King and Queen. Anna continues a third verse, this time in a minor tone, as she comes back from the wake, walks up to the door to Elsa's bedroom for the umpteenth time... and sits down at the door, the last lyrics wilting into sobs. Elsa, who can remember the real reason for all this, can hear her right on the other side of the door but cannot bear to answer her. Elsa's room is covered in frost, emanating from her spot. Remembering that her power stems from her emotions, you can see how poor Elsa has been affected by all this.

** When Elsa worries her powers are growing stronger, the way he rushes over to her, to hold her close and reassure her that it'll all be alright in spite of the risk to his own person just drips of a concerned and conflicted parent. Given how alien the problem is (a daughter being born with unexplained ice powers) to everyone, they're at a loss as how to deal with it and protect Elsa, especially given how the troll's vision clearly makes him scared for Elsa's safety.



** Elsa remarking in the "For the First Time in Forever (Reprise)" about how she "can't control the curse". To think that Elsa went from adoring her powers and always using them to have fun with her sister to hating them to the point that she feels cursed is quite depressing. When she sings "There's so much fear!", she looks at her reflection in a nearby wall. It's as if she's starting to think that the Duke ''was right'' about her being a monster.

* Pulling double duty as a tear jerker and heartwarming moment, Agdar has gotten a lot of flak from viewers, who feel he is responsible for Elsa's situation. While the results are questionable, there is no doubt he loves Elsa in spite of everything. When he tells her "Getting upset only makes it worse, calm down!", his words may seem harsh, but the way he rushes over to her, to hold her close and reassure her that it'll all be alright in spite of the risk to his own person just drips of a concerned and conflicted parent.

** The way the ballroom is suddenly covered in ice spikes, emanating from Elsa, also adds to the sadness of the scene, reflecting her emotional state. Additionally, it's the first time we see the darker aspects of Elsa's powers; a huge case of MoodWhiplash when compared to a few moments ago, when Elsa was shooting out snow and harmless ice.

* When they are closing all the windows and doors, you see the girls' room. Anna and Elsa used to share a room and in the overhead shot, all of the stuff on Elsa's side of the room vanishes. Then, when Anna wants to play with Elsa, she runs to her room, only for Elsa to look away sadly and shut the door on her without a single word. This leaves Anna saddened and standing still in shock, wondering what she did wrong. (Imagine "[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory2 When She Loved Me]]" if it could be made more depressing).

* Adding to that, Elsa's reaction when Hans informs her that Anna is dead, because of ''her'', she could only fall to her knees in absolute despair over what she believed she had done. Then Hans took that opportunity to attempt to kill her while she was at her weakest. It is possible Elsa was too overcome with grief to notice the attempt on her life behind her. On the other hand, she could have but simply didn't care anymore even though she has more than enough power to defend herself. Taken that way, since she thought Anna was dead, Elsa felt she lost any reason to continue living, even thinking she ''deserves to be killed'' for what she supposedly did to Anna.
* At the beginning, Grand Pabbie the troll tells Elsa (who, remember, is about nine years old at this point) and her parents, "Fear will be your greatest enemy," and thinks, oh, hell, it's a great idea to accompany this with a conjured image of Elsa ''being killed by an angry mob.'' The poor girl is terrified, and buries her face in her father's chest. This spurs the King and Queen to isolate Elsa from others, for fear that the vision comes true, creating an entirely new set of problems.

** Seeing the then-inert Olaf being destroyed by the spikes. RuleOfSymbolism is in full effect here and it only gets worse as Elsa flees. Once she's outside, she accidentally freezes a fountain in front of her people. You can tell it stings when she sees a woman clutch her baby closer in fright, especially since the woman in question had just asked Elsa if she's alright.

** This is really shown during their conversation at Elsa's coronation: Anna stands very close to her sister only to move away slightly. She seems taken aback that Elsa would initiate a conversation between them. The ensuing conversation is rather awkward and stilted on both sides. They've been apart for so long that they rarely ever get to actually be in the same room together.

* Kristoff's heart sinking when Grand Pabbie the Troll tells him that he can't heal Anna.
* The look on Elsa's face at the party when she accidentally reveals her powers to Anna and everyone there. She shows nothing but complete horror and fear of what she has just done. Keep in mind the reason for all the neglect Elsa inflicted on Anna, from anyone in fact, is because she was too afraid of exposing her abilities and being shunned because of them. It is now hammered and Elsa just stares at everyone before suddenly rushing out of the room.

** Elsa really wants Anna to leave and be safe, but Anna doesn't consider leaving. She wants her sister back.
*** It's striking in this scene how much Anna wants Elsa back in her life, when she instantly wants Hans to move in with her and her sister (to which he agrees- to Elsa's horror- 'cos, well, that's what he's like). She wants someone new in her life to have some fun, but doesn't for a moment want to move away, and feels she's been given a SadisticChoice by Elsa when, as she sees it, she's being told to choose to either be there for sister or marry.
** The really sad bit of this dialogue is that it's OneDialogueTwoConversations. Elsa basically says "You can't marry a man you just met", meaning: "He's not the right guy for you. [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Go and spend a few more years enjoying your life,]] and ''then'' maybe consider settling down to find someone." Anna hears: "Go on then. If you want to live outside ''my'' rules, go with your boyfriend. Get out, betray me. I don't care if [[IHaveNoSon I have no sister]], I'm fed up with you."

* At the beginning, Grand Pabbie the troll tells Elsa (who, remember, is about nine years old at this point) and her parents, "Fear will be your greatest enemy," and thinks, oh, hell, it's a great idea to accompany this with a conjured image of Elsa ''being killed by an angry mob.'' The poor girl is terrified, and buries her face in her father's chest. This is almost certainly the thing that spurs the King and Queen to isolate Elsa from others, for fear that the vision comes true, creating an entirely new set of problems.

* Pointed out by a Tumblr user: When Kristoff is yelling at the trolls that Anna is already engaged to another man during their romantic sales-pitch song to Anna regarding Kristoff. Kristoff is embarrassed by his family to be sure, but he didn't say that he didn't love Anna or didn't want to marry her, only that he can't be with her because of her prior engagement. He looks and sounds sad, frustrated, and almost desperate when he says it. He fell for Anna hard and fast, and in his eyes, it was doomed from the word "go".
