Powerful! We Caught These Video Game Characters Crying a Single Tear!

By  | 

Video game characters are not real people, but that doesn’t mean they’re not still people. If you cut them, do they not bleed? If you put them in a game with a bunch of problems, do people not still bitch about it? Video game characters feel things. They feel things. And here are some incredibly moving photos of those video game characters crying while they thought you weren’t looking. It’s beautiful, and moving, and important…

Donkey Kong

As Dixie laughs and plays, Donkey Kong thinks of his misspent youth in which he defended his father against those who would persecute him simply for liking to kidnap women.

Crash Bandicoot

Crash knows that his popularity will create a brief surge in interest in his endangered bandicoot brothers, only for that affection to slowly trickle away, leaving the bandicoots as bad-off as they are today.

Sub Zero

Sonic the Hedgehog

If you were loved not for who you were, but only what you could do (go fast), you’d also shed a tear for yourself once in a while.


q*bert cries

If you were a grotesque crime against nature like Q*bert, shedding a single tear once in a while would be incredibly restrained of you.


Ryu cries

Ryu knows that, at some point, he will have to come to blows with his old friend and rival, Ken. However, instead of exploding with emotion, his training helps him keep in all but one tear…

Pacman Ghosts

Lara Croft

Originally raised on movies like Indiana Jones, Lara “raided” more and more tombs, until she eventually realized she isn’t actually “raiding tombs”, she’s stealing important artifacts from other peoples’ cultures.



Link is thinking about how all of his friends made fun of him for having a hoop earing. “Ol’ pirate ass Link,” they called him. Tragic.

Mega Man

Mario is so insanely horny that he’s crying ya’ll!!!

Folks, this is what happens when you don’t go to college.
