* So how about that Mdisk, huh? The one Pey'j gives you, called "For Jade"? A bit of backstory, and you learn about the [[spoiler:spaceship]] you need to get to the final area. All to a sad soundtrack. (If you're watching the LetsPlay, it's close to the beginning of video 11.)

** [[spoiler: Even worse, after the scene, you get the option to "talk" to Pey'j's body. You get a single dialogue option telling Pey'j to wake up, and if you choose it, Jade just stands there until you exit out of the conversation.]]

Renamed trope.
** [[ItGotWorse And then there's the fact that the]] [[FridgeHorror whole kidnapped population were revived by the sane tainted energy...]] *** Maybe not. [[spoiler: Pey'j was revived while the Domz Priest was still in charge. Everyone else only after [[EyeScream he resigned]].]] Of course, this could mean that [[[[spoiler: [[ItGotWorse Pey'j isn't infected with any general Domz, but with the Priest itself.]]]]

* During the Slaughterhouse mission, once you take the last picture, the game starts playing a really dramatic and sad theme to drive home just how tragic this whole scenario is.

* The infamous "lighthouse scene" (as seen in the heading quote of the HeroicBSOD page) is easily one of the most heart-wrenching scenes in all of gaming, and if it doesn't make you feel at least a ''little'' sad, this troper will wonder where your soul went. [[spoiler: Upon returning to her home, Jade finds her lighthouse completely destroyed, and all of her children are missing. As the enormity of what has happened sets in, complete with Empathy Doll Shot, she collapses against the wall. Her dog appears from the ruins and cuddles up with her; as she strokes his head, she gives a heart-felt, sob-wracked speech that's ostentiably about how useless her dog is--though this clearly [[IHaveThisFriend isn't the case.]] Even Double H is clearly fighting back ManlyTears.]] ** Made worse because if you have, like this troper, kept steady contact with [[spoiler: kids (visiting after each mission)]], so you have rooted for them and because you know what will happen to them if you don't save them. [[spoiler: They will be used as a energy source for the Domz.]] ** And of course, the part that happens before it at Mammago. You're just done with your shopping [[spoiler: to take the Beluga out to space]], when, just as you leave and literally half a second before the loading screen, you hear an unexpected boom. One loading screen later, you see [[spoiler: the lighthouse smoking and a few ships flying away. At that moment, you're wasting turbos and praying you get there on time.]] ** How bad is it? [[http://www.bgemyth.net/?page=plus_d_infos/creation_du_jeu/interview_jacques_exertier/interview_jacques_exertier.php A recent interview]] has revealed that people were ''tearing up in the studio'' when Jade's voice actor read her take on that scene. * The "TakeMyHand" scene is a triumphant TearJerker, as it shows us just how much Jade and Double H [[TrueCompanions have come to care about each other.]] [[spoiler: After she's been chased across the rooftops by General Kehck, Double H waits for Jade on top of a large, floating billboard. He sticks out his hand for her. She jumps. She doesn't make it. Double H briefly panics; he then dives down the other side of the billboard. Jade slides down the front of the billboard, headed for her doom, with an absolutely terrified expression on her face. But as the last portion of the billboard slips through her fingers, Double H, now balancing precariously on the billboard's tiny base, catches her. Cue one of his {{Catch Phrase}}s, "Don't break up the team", in a [[YouAreWithMe whole new context.]] And Jade gives him a relieved, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] smile that just pushes this troper over the edge.]]

Removing the "Got Better" potholes as stock phrase.
** [[spoiler: [[IGotBetter He gets better.]] This does not help in the tear department. In fact, if anything, their reunion is ''worse.'' Even if Pey'j's description of exactly ''how'' he got better is slightly cheesy, the look on Jade's face as she throws her arms around him says it all...]]
