* As the game reaches its climax, the group faces their DarkestHour: Judy's been hit with the deadly venom from a plant's barbs, Alan is stuck in the floor with Sarah's arms also trapped around him, and Peter is barely holding off a group of massive spiders with an ax while trying to get to his sister. Sarah desperately rolls her turn in the hopes that she'll win, but fails, and you can hear her voice absolutely ''breaking'' as she reads the rhyme (there's a quick shot of her eyes closing in anguish as she finishes it, suggesting that she's lost all hope). Bonnie Hunt even delivers the line quietly to contrast the utter chaos flying around her, and the result is all the sadder:
-->'''Sarah''': You're...almost there, with much at stake...but now the ground...begins to quake...

*** This exchange between Judy and Peter regarding that.
--->'''Peter:''' Do you miss Mom and Dad?\\
'''Judy:''' ÖNo.\\
'''Peter:''' Liar. If you donít cut that out, theyíre gonna send you to a shrink.\\
'''Judy:''' Where do you think theyíre gonna send you if you donít start talking?

** Adding to this, as Alan is being sucked into the game, if you listen carefully, you can hear him scream "[[SayMyName SARAH!!]] ROLL THE DICE!!!"


* Near the end of the film is another particularly heartrending moment; [[spoiler: Judy dying in her little brother's arms from a plant's poisonous barb. Her last words that she gasps out? "I...wish that mom and dad were here."]]

* "My dad could barely ''hug me'', let alone chop me into little pieces...í This paints a picture of how Alan grew up thinking his father didn't love him. It's especially heart-breaking given Alanís father gave up on his business and life once Alan went missing. He never got to give his son at least one hug...

* The final episode has the biggest, yet most subtle tearjerker in the series. Alan is finally free from the game! However he's slow to celebrate as he realises [[spoiler: All he had to do was pull the thorn from the paw of the lion he met in the first minute of playing the game]]. He spent nearly thirty years trapped in Jumanji, fighting for his life as he lost his childhood, his family and everything else, and now he realises he could have been free within five minutes of starting and had all of that.
* "Nothing to Fear". Judy and Peter's fears are relatively silly when compared with Alan's [[AdultFear fear]]: growing old and dying in Jumanji without ever returning home. At one point, under the influence of the Triangle of Terror, Alan has a sobering hallucination: it's a time skip where Judy has a daughter, but she can't so much as attend said-daughter's birthday because she has to go help "Uncle Alan". Poor Alan is afraid his being stuck in Jumanji will lead to interfering with Judy and Peter leading normal lives.

However, Sarah tells him now they are kids again in 1969, Judy and Peter don't exist yet and have been erased from time. Even more heartbreaking is when Sarah gives Alan their game pieces.
