- Voice of Reason has admitted to getting teary-eyed after Twilight Sparkle delivers her climatic speech in episode 2 of Camaraderie is Supernatural during his review of the series.
- While fictional, Dr. Wolf's Origins Episode contains a few. The stand out so far being Dr. Wolf's family disappearing during the massive blizzard he grew up in. While he can't remember it clearly, the image of them vanishing one by one is just heartwrenching.
- The Dr. Wolf session with Lightning Bliss about why we create and the struggles of being pressured by angry fans and fellow peers. Yes it's scripted, but Bliss breaks down crying twice.
- During "Flight of Blight", after the other analysts attempts to stop Blight completely fails, Dr. Wolf tells everyone to retreat as Thunder Blight picks up her attacks. His expression makes it clear that having to fall back when Blight is close to killing Bliss is not something he's happy he's doing.
- Golden Fox and Keyframe's review of "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?", where the plot follows Golden Fox suffering from sleep issues that is revealed to have been caused by his guilt and anxiety over his behavior and actions in Season 4, resulting with Golden enduring a breakdown over the past events as well as calling out the episode's detractors (in other words, half of the Analysis Community and fanbase) over missing the point of the episode, especially when Golden points out he connects to what Luna was doing and why she was tormenting herself over her guilt, becoming incredibly frustrated as a result.Golden Fox: Many people took the context of the moral and blew it into such ridiculous hyperbole it actually hurts. I'll come out and say that I love the episode's moral because I can connect with having regretful past actions and it's true that you have to forgive yourself. It's been a challenge for me as well as many others, even with some anxiety. But when something as important as a message gets blown out of context, that's where it draws the line and it personally pisses me off. I've been judged, I've been pushed around since childhood, and it doesn't help when morals that I've taken into account - urgh! - are ruined by someone else's judgement that it forces me into a severe condition that I have to question the meaning of myself! AAAH! WHY MUST I BE AGGRESSIVE OVER EVERYTHING?! WHY MUST I DEAL WITH DEFEAT BY JUDGEMENT?! WHY CAN'T I BE WHAT I CHOOSE TO BE?! WHY DO I HAVE TO PUT WITH THIS WORLD?! WHO AM I SUPPOSED TO BE?! WHY DO I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS AT ONCE!? MAKE IT STOP! MAKE IT STOP!!
Golden Fox: G-Get away... (Keyframe approaches him gently before he pushes her away from him) GET AWAY! (panting and trembling)..I'M NOT GOOD ENOUGH! (turns away from Keyframe)..THEY'LL NEVER FORGIVE ME!
- Key witnessing Golden being attacked by his own version of the Tantabus, with it even cutting his body. That's not even touching on when said Tantabus splits itself from Golden, it throws him on the ground beaten and bruised and crying.
- While a moment of Heartwarming with Key telling Golden he was never alone, Golden still absorbs his Tantabus (to mirror Luna absorbing her own Tantabus) and breaks down into Key's arms, considering even though he knows people forgive him, he struggles to forgive himself
- Lightning Bliss' review of the Rainbow Brite reboot. By the end of the review, she is completely broken.
- "Return of Thunder Bright" really shows what the original script would have been. Part 3 however is heartbreaking by showing Blight stealing Golden's colors and making him a selfish Jerkass who doesn't care for Keyframe and then removing Key's colors and making her unsure and not confident of herself. The fact Golden acts he doesn't care anymore about anything or even Keyframe makes it more saddening.
