Yes, even something as lighthearted and sugary as Tokimeki PokéLive! and Twinbee can make you want to shed a tear and protect all of the girls who appear in the main stories and Side Stories even more.
On the other hand, not every moment that can make you cry is lighthearted or heartwarming, since there are also some pretty dark moments or backstories for thus universe that will send you right back to normal Love Live! for some much-needed Sweet Dreams Fuel!
- Rina's shyness reaches it's peak in the main story "Rina Tennoji's Stage Fright". It makes you want to hug her the way Freya does to cheer her up right after she starts crying!
- It is implied that off-screen, that is, that the girls all have school related problems and other minor problems that they have to deal with on occasion, but thankfully, they have friends and even girlfriends for most of them to cheer them up when they're feeling down.
- Yoko's biological parents dying in a train accident. After the accident which claims her parents's lives, she lives in an orphanage in downtown Tokyo until she's finally adopted by a loving couple, Hilda Osaka White and Shizuku Kutashimo Osaka White.
- The whole segment of "Hilda's Tomboy/Girly Girl Debate!" where it's revealed that the reason why Hilda became a tomboy originally was that some kids from her former neighborhood in Nuvema Town teased her about her girly looking dress when she was a bit younger in her childhood years. Thankfully, Shizuku cheers Hilda up by giving her a pep talk about how she can be a tomboy while also having girly interests at the same time!
- Yoko's emotional breakdown after remembering her mother and father in "A Somber Mother's Day!?".
- Also, from "A Somber Mother's Day!?" ,the backstory regarding how Daisy Wakaouji died from complications regarding the birth of her and her husband's twin children.
- Easily overlapling to some extent with (Ultra Charged) Nightmare Fuel, the entire scene near the end from Sally Acorn telling how her and the Knothole Freedom Fighter's world ended back home to the part where everyone cries and SONIC of all people shedding a tear in "Planet Mobius, Destoyed, but Never Forgotten!?". Even if nothing like what Sally described that happened to Mobius will never, ever affect Shizuku's World, it still screams "Sh*t just got real!" as well.
- In "Prophecy of Failure", Aleena inhabits a world that has been ravaged by Climate Change, but what makes it much sadder is that the hellhole of a world Aleena lives in was caused by Yoko and Ellie losing the final decisive battle against Eggman, so who knows what happened to them after their loss against the doctor!
- Even more sad than that, due to the revelation from Aleena of Yoko's and Ellie's loss against Eggman, everything that Hilda and Shizuku as well as Tamaki and Chizuru and all their friends and allies have done to make the world a better place has all been for naught, and a scary, sad future of a wild, unpredictable climate and resource wars, some of which even go nuclear, awaits future generations of humans as well as Modern Sonic's kind.
- Here's a possible what if Tear Jerker to end all, at least for this universe. It's speculated that Infinite or the Phantom Ruby itself is responsible for the Love Live! School Idol Festival All Stars retcon which adds the other six Perfect Dream Project members to the Tokimeki PokéLive! and Twinbee universe, and assuming Infinite/the Phantom Ruby were successful, we would have said goodbye, possibly forever, to Hilda, Shizuku, Shiori and Pastel, leaving the version of Eggman from the dimension that Sonic Forces takes place in to come into this dimension and devastate this version of Love Live!Earth while ruthlessly conquering it, just like he destroyed portions of Sonic's world while conquering it in ''Forces''... Thank Arceus that the whole thing is softened fully by the fact that Rina Tennoji, Ai Miyashita, Ayumu Uehara and the others were simply added to this universe through Infinite/the Phantom Ruby as the only effect on this universe!
- SHIZUKU of all characters is struck down with a case of Break the Cutie in a Tokimeki Splatoon story!
