** Worse of all is this, because there is no dub for Season 4, he technically never survives the series in the english dub version.


** Ryo is more mentally balanced in season 3, but he suffers ''physically'' throughout it. He spends most of the season trying to find a perfect duel that will take everything he has, [[DeathSeeker fully aware that he may not survive it]]. His heart condition takes a massive toll on him before the duel with Yubel even starts, and he collapses more than once, but he [[SecretlyDying refuses to tell anyone]] because he [[DontYouDarePityMe doesn't want to be rescued]]. His determination and refusal to give up before the end of that final duel is both his CrowningMomentOfAwesome and a TearJerker of the highest order.

* From Season 4, Episode 177: Yubel being forced [[spoiler: to attack Juudai head-on by Darkness]]. The look on her face as she's forcibly dragged across the arena an inch at a time is absolutely heartbreaking. Followed by a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when Juudai [[spoiler: takes her hand and vows "I'll get you back, no matter what!"]]

* In Episode 25, Chazz is in the bathroom of the Duel Academy, crumbling under intense pressure and close to sobbing. It's not just ''Jagger and Slade'', his two brothers, that he has to impress, no... it's pretty much all of North Academy that he has to prove that he's the best in the business as he claims. He keeps beating himself up over this, and to make it worse, Jaden's overhearing Chazz's plight, but he doesn't know what to tell him at the time. All of this takes place ''right before'' his big duel with Jaden, Duel Academy's representative.

Added DiffLines:

* A good version of this trope. Asuka/Alexis's graduation speech in season 4 was sensational, giving a great feeling of finality for the characters of GX.

Added DiffLines:

** Even when he's saved / revived, it's ''bad''. He wakes up from a high fever with no idea of where he is or what's going on and is too traumatized to even process dueling. It's only when he sees Zane's sacrifice that he finally picks up a card, and it's clear he is ''not'' better at all.

Added DiffLines:

* The scene after Zane [[BigDamnHeroes rescues Syrus from Devil Dozer]] is a mix of heartwarming and tearjerking. Their relationship is obviously (and [[KickTheDog for]] [[ElectricTorture good]] [[BigBrotherBully reason]]) strained and Zane is incapable of being nice, but he does encourage Syrus to watch over Jaden if the friendship is still important to him. In his own [[NoSocialSkills socially-inept way]]. On the tear-jerking side, Zane asks why Syrus was willing to stand up to him last year, but not to Jaden now... and then says, "Maybe you're better off without him. Just like you're better off without me." Zane knows he's dying. One last time, he's trying to protect his brother from how much of a wreck his own life is.


* Professor Viper's backstory is heartbreaking, despite how he had been, you feel for him when his adopted son dies. [[spoiler: And then Yubel lied about resurrecting him. The Japanese version just twisted the nail further into the coffin when Yubel changes Viper's memories so that he thinks his son is still alive, walking off the tall platform everyone is standing on to his own ''death''.]]

* Syrus in season 3. After losing his big brother emotionally, he now faces the same situation with his best friend.''best friend''. By the end of Season 3, the viewer clearly sees Syrus in tears, wanting Jaden back after everything that went down. He clearly regrets how he treated Jaden and his mere ''expression'' at the thought of Jaden sacrificing himself in Episode 155 was '''heart wrenching'''. The fact that the Japanese version had Syrus revert to his original "ANIKI!" (especially after a few dozen episodes of his calling Jaden merely by name with a monotone voice) when emotionally calling out to Jaden sold it. Thankfully, it turned Heartwarming when Jaden eventually returned, but with Season 4 and Jaden's distance, their relationship will never be the same again.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, the build-up to said breakdown. It was really apparent that Jesse's loss in the first dimension took its toll on Jaden, and each dimension saw Jaden get more reckless, just wanting to find his friend. The new 'death with a loss in a duel' made things harder, because then duels weren't even fun anymore. Jaden had to keep fighting, and by the time he faces Brron, he reaches his limit when his friends are sacrificed, putting on a stoic front for the sake of not breaking down. It was only with '''Syrus''' calling him out on his recklessness that he finally snaps.
