There are a few, generally involving the deaths of major villains. Shin, declaring his love for Yuria even as he dies from Kenshiro's techniques and throwing himself from his throne room is an early example. One of the most effective involves the death of one of the protagonists, however. The battle between Raoh and Toki ends as Toki, who has been dying of radiation sickness makes a last, desperate series of attacks in order to try to kill Raoh, his older brother.
As the fight goes on, Raoh realizes that Toki's dying body means that Toki has no chance to win, but continues to fight regardless, and Raoh himself begins to cry even as he continues to fight, out of love for his younger brother, and because the destiny of their style makes a tragic fate such as Toki's unavoidable.
Fist of the North Star
The title of the episode that ends the fight says it all: The Tears Fall Only Once! Turns out that part of the reason this is happening is that while growing up, Raoh had made Toki promise to stop him were he to go down the wrong road, and had previously scolded Toki for crying. Raoh couldn't bring himself to kill Toki, and instead delivered a knockout blow.
Later on, Ryuga, himself a tragic character, comes along to finish the job. What makes this all the more soul shattering was that just mere seconds before Ryuga arrived, Toki expressed that he had found new hope in using his powers to heal the sick people of the Village of Miracles.
Feel free to cry, Toki. I won't scold you again Take care of your body, my little brother.
The ending credits of the movie, in which Kenshiro imagines himself walking through a beautiful forest and seeing Yuria happy, only to have everything fade back to the desolate nuclear wasteland it all really is, all to the haunting theme of ''Purple Eyes''.
Somewhere around half the cast is composed of tragic heroes and villains. The murder of Ryo, an innocent little boy, by Souther's poisoned bread in the original manga and the first Raoh Den film.
Watching a massive warrior weeping with his beloved baby son limp in his arms, you'd either have to be as kind as Kenshiro or as evil as Souther if you believe the tyrant deserves any forgiveness. The death of Shuu's son, Shiba. Kenshiro can't even find the words to describe it.
The undisputed champion of tear-jerking deaths in this series is Rei. His death is SO important, it's even used to signify the end of the second 'act' of the first anime series. Kenshiro's long, echoing Say My Name cries really drove it home. And then Shuu lasts just long enough to miraculously regain his eyesight and see Kenshiro as an adult.
Cue Kenshiro being the most pissed off he's ever been. Kenshiro Den has one of the most devastating ones in the entire franchise: Yuria, dying of radiation sickness, reveals to Kenshiro that she is pregnant with Kenshiro's child. The big man himself lets the waterworks flow at the revelation. Jagi Gaiden can best be summed up as one long Tear Jerker after another from start to finish. From seeing Jagi as he was, his relationship with Ryuken, Anna's death and Jagi's reaction to it, Ryuken's sorrow at what Jagi had become, Jagi's final moments looking back on his miserable life, Kenshiro's anguish over having killed Jagi despite everything he did, and Jagi possibly reuniting with Anna in death Honestly, it's hard not to weep at how thoroughly Jagi's life has been screwed by both his own actions and bitter fate.
The fact that this manga could make you sympathize with Jagi of all characters, one of the biggest bastards in all of Fist of the North Star, is saying something. In a rather tasteful use of drama by Toei AnimationKenshiro, after crossing Raoh's battle aura, tells him how much he and Toki admire him and how the feeling will never goes away from his heart, he full-blown sheds his Manly Tears in this fight.
In the same episode, after Yuria tells Raoh of her fate by radiation sickness like Toki'she sheds tears of his own againmourning of her eventual fate and deciding not to sacrifice her to obtain Muso Tensei, but achieving it by the sadness that fills him with this revelation. Souther may be an irredeemable monster, but there is one way to some to ignite sympathy even for him: Unfortunately, Ougai purposely missed out about how he'll have to kill him in order to succeed the Nanto Houou Ken.
When Souther found out the hard way that he had to kill his master, he tearfully declared that if love hurts so much, he has no need for love, leading him to be the brutal tyrant he is. Could be just a Freudian Excusebut it's a pretty powerful one to see how the Crapsack World turned one of the most loving kids in the verse into a brutal tyrant. Then when Kenshiro beat him, all of the sudden, he felt like a child again, after commending Kenshiro over his victoryhe slowly pulled himself up the side of the pyramid and crawled into the statue of his master, wept for his master and begging him to comfort him again, well just in time for the whole pyramid to crumble, taking him with it too.
His acts may be unforgivable, but how he ended up that way For 22 minutes we are shown a desolate, nuclear blasted wasteland. The credits cue up and show scenes of natural beauty He defeats several groups and continues on his way with Mr. Hobb, a little old man and leader of a group of hunters.

After she leaves, she is cornered by Seeker of Raoh's reconnaissance squad, but is saved by Ken. Meanwhile, Raoh's invading army has started attacking Mamiya's village.

However, their battle is interrupted when Rei fires an arrow at Raoh. Raoh then hits Rei's pressure point Shinkesshu and declares that Rei now only has three days to live. Meanwhile, Ken is weakened by a severe blow to his chest. He intercedes in Kenshiro and Raoh's fight, revealing that Raoh was responsible for the death of their frail master and adoptive father, Ryuken. Believing that Ken is not ready to fight Raoh, he paralyzes Ken and challenges Raoh himself, advising Ken to learn from his technique of avoiding and deflecting direct attacks.
However Raoh pins their feet to the ground with a short trident. Shinu no wa kisama da!! Mamiya goes to intervene, but Rei stops her, saying that it will end in her death, and that he loves her. She fires a crossbow arrow at Raoh, but Kenshiro manages to break free from Toki's paralysis and intercepts the arrow when it's returned by Raoh. Ken and Raoh now fight, with Raoh using techniques stolen from masters he imprisoned in Cassandra.
They continue the fight to the point where they're both too wounded to continue and Toki separates them, the battle ending in a stalemate.

In a small village, Kenshiro discovers that Souther's Hyenas are kidnapping children to work on his Mausoleum. When another Hyena tries to kidnap children, Ken rescues them.
