Just like humans, monsters can be emotional, too.... Monster Tears is when a monster or monsters (especially The Undead) cries; this not only makes the monster Not So Stoic, but more sympathetic as well, especially if the monster is a witch, werewolf, ghost, skeleton, etc. If the monster's an alien, expect him or her shrieking, "My Eyes Are Leaking!" If the monster's a vampire, expect him or her to cry Tears of Blood. May overlap with a Monster Sob Story to make it more of a Tear Jerker.

Compare: Not So Stoic, Tender Tears, My Eyes Are Leaking, Tears from a Stone.

Emily from [1] cries not once, not twice, but three times in the film: She cries after she realizes Victor lied to her, again at the end of "Tears to Shed", and again when she doesn't want Victor to commit suicide and his wife to be, Victoria's dreams to be taken.

You're not supposed to have folders without any examples. You should delete the empty folders until you have examples from those categories.
