An end-of-story memorial service given by a support or surviving major character in memory of less fortunate characters. May serve as a handy explanation of what would otherwise be a {{Gainax Ending}} to wrap things up and tell you that no, the heroes are not [[HesJustHiding "just hiding"]], or merely an emotive, tragic summative on the sorry affair.

See {{The Hero Dies}} and {{Kill Em All}} for what may lead to this kind of ending being needed. May be used to prevent a {{Gainax Ending}}. {{Bittersweet Ending}}s are the most common to feature this. See also {{To Absent Friends}}, which is closely related.

Note that this is both an {{Ending Trope}} and a {{Death Trope}}, so expect major spoilers... especially since the appearance of this trope is an indication that the main character [[TheHeroDies might have bought it.]]

So read on at your own risk.
