Tear Jerker / Trolls: World Tour

Go To
"...And the trolls never lived in harmony again."
Arguably, this movie was Darker and Edgier than the original was ever trying to be. So obviously, there were gonna be sad moments.
  • At the beginning of the film, Branch tries to confess to Poppy his feelings for her but he Cannot Spit It Out. Then she tells him she loves being his friend, which causes his "happy" face to freeze while the word "friend" repeats in his head.
  • The reason for all the different trolls living in isolation? The Pop trolls' ancestors made off with all the musical strings and remixed the other trolls' music to make it their own.
  • The argument between Poppy and Branch.
    Poppy: We are really different.
    Branch: So different!
    Poppy: Completely out of harmony.
    Branch: Completely!
    Poppy: I don't even know why we're friends!
    Branch: Neither do I! So...why do about you more than anyone else in the world? Weird, right?
    • It's followed by the song, Perfect For Me, with both of them expessing how their feelings for each other cause them nothing but pain.
  • It's extremely difficult not to feel sorry for Hickory when he's revealed to be a Bounty Hunter seeking to bring Poppy in to Barb. The look on his face as it sinks in that his cover has been blown suggests that this wasn't how he wanted things to go.
