* In episode 12, Kageyama reveals Kidou's backstory: [[spoiler:when him and Haruna were young, they lost their parents in a plane crash and grew up in an orphanage until they were adopted by different families. In order to bring his sister back, Kidou made a deal with his father to win three consecutive national tournaments; they wouldn't be able to live together if he loses.]] Kageyama being the ManipulativeBastard he is, he tries to toy with Endou's emotions to lose on purpose so that Teikoku will win.

** Raimon first met Fubuki on Northern Ridge. How is this relevant? Furukabu implies that many avalanches takes place there. Doubles as HarsherInHindsight because [[spoiler:even after years, Fubuki still can't let go of the death of his parents.]]
* Episode 46 is no better, with [[spoiler:Endou having a massive HeroicBSOD over Kazemaru leaving the team, blaming himself for it and Fubuki's injuries and unstability, spending almost the entirety of the episode on the rooftop to the point ''he stops eating and won't move even if it's raining''. And then Kurimatsu leaves, too, as he can't take the situation any longer.]] The fact that the episode is called "The Captain's Trial" should've clued you in.

* [[spoiler: Kageyama's death. Made especially heartwrenching due to the fact we see him finally come to terms with the fact that he was chasing his father's soccer all along and that despite everything that happened, he still loved his father and soccer itself.]]
** [[spoiler: After Kageyama's death we are also treated to a scene where Rushe, the little girl Kageyama saved, opens a present from him that was a reward for completing her surgery. After she opens it she wonders when she will get to see Kageyama again and hopes that he will get to teach her lots of things about soccer. Poor thing doesn't know that the man she admires most is dead.]]

[[spoiler:On his way back to the future, Fey visits Kinako, who is pregnant with himself, knowing already that Kinako will die giving birth to him. However, Kinako tells him that history can always change, and is optimistic that maybe she'll survive to see him grow up. The music just adds to the feels in that cutscene.]]

(The preview showing that Someoka joined Hakuren after that.) While there maybe some members that fans don't really like and the split is only temporary, it's still sad to see, knowing that the members could have gotten more closer with each other in the original series instead of splitting up temporarily.

* The first half of episode 63 is an emotional rollercoaster and overlaps ''a lot'' with CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. While Raimon were celebrating their long-earned victory over The Genesis and Aliea Gakuen as a whole, Seijirou joins them down on the football pitch and comments that "The Genesis project" was a mistake, which makes Ulvida angry due to misunderstanding they're a mistake and kicks a soccer ball at him, but Hiroto jumps in front of his father to take the hit instead and when Ulvida asks him why would he save the man who believes they're a mistake, Hiroto answers that Seijirou was still his father and he still loved him no matter what.

** Then comes episode 102, in which Fuyuka regains her childhood memories, including the traumatic accident, which shocks her so much she falls unconscious. Endou desperately trying to bring her back and Coach Kudou deciding that hypnotherapy is the only way to save her are rather heartbreaking to watch.

* Chrono Stone in general is filled with bleakness and sorrow, most notably from the very beginning.
* In episode one, Alpha rewrites Tenma's past by redirecting the soccer ball that saved him when he attempted to save Sasuke, resulting in the parallel world where he's injured for a month. He's able to fight back the changes but puts himself in excuritating pain in order to stop his own temporal anomaly.

* Episode 5 shows the ramifications of Protocol Omega 2.0.'s manipulations: the government banning soccer. As ridiculous as it sounds, the heartcrying pleas of the little boy who has his soccer ball burned is sad to watch in-universe.
* Episode 6's DownerEnding. Endou sacrifices himself to save the rest of the team, but is captured and removed from the timestream, [[DeathByIrony explained that he died in a car accident similar to his grandfather]]. Worse, every member of the team but the Avatar wielders and managers have been brainwashed into losing their love and willpower for soccer.

* Ares Episode 3: We get the source of Kozoumaru's preference of offense. When he was younger, he was a defender who wasn't good despite all of his training. He attempted to stop a robber thanks to his improved speed, but couldn't catch up. However, Gouenji arrives and not only saves the day, but advises Kozoumaru to become a forward instead. In hindsight, him learning Fire Tornado like Gouenji did makes sense.
