* Happens ''thrice'' in ''SuikodenV''. The first occurs after the coup, a major PlayerPunch accompanied by a real sense of loss even if it's sort of a ForegoneConclusion. The second is Lelcar being set ablaze, driving home just how far the enemy is willing to go since it's one of their own cities they're torching. The ''third'' is the attack on Beaver Lodge, which [[MoralEventHorizon pushes the enemy]] from any argument of WellIntentionedExtremist to monsters openly planning ''genocide'' to "purify Falena." In all cases, the target is the hometown of several of the [[OneHundredAndEight Stars of Destiny]], and attention is always given to their reaction.
