* Then there is the [[spoiler: death of Kaori]]. She had zero to do with Tetsuo's condition. On the contrary, she loves him and genuinely cares for him, despite him being a royal prick. [[spoiler: Yet, she pays the ultimate price.]]

* There's the death of poor [[spoiler: Takashi]], which happens right when it ''seems'' things may start getting better and as he happily goes towards [[spoiler: Akira]], calling out to him and asking if he remembers him from the past. And right when he's extending his hands to touch the kid he's so happy to see again... [[spoiler: [[PrettyLittleHeadshots BANG]], courtesy of [[SmugSnake Nezu]].]] No wonder [[spoiler: Akira has a terrible HeroicBSOD as he sees Takashi die, completely loses control of his powers, pretty much ''blows up the whole of Tokyo by himself'']].

* When Takashi's owner dies in the film. Not only does he die trying to protect Takashi, but once the police stop firing when they realize he has a kid, the owner orders Takashi to go, and he distances himself but sticks around long enough for the police to approach him and viciously open fire. Takashi just looks ''crushed''.

* [[spoiler: Takashi's and Kaori's deaths.]]
** Although, in the latter's case, viewers might be a bit too... [[BodyHorror distracted]] to feel sad.
*** The manga version of [[spoiler:Kaori's death]] is very different than in the movie, and is more tragic than horrific.

** On a more subtle note: [[spoiler: when Tetsuo transforms into another universe, we hear him proclaim his own name in a worried and reluctant manner. There's something quite sad about this.]]

** Not including that Kei's expression of joy after he leaves... it spells books of how much he has come to love her; she was about to be left thinking that her love was one-sided. If there were such things as thought bubbles in the manga, she would be thinking "Gee, what d'you know... that's ''MY MAN'' going to battle for me!"
