** The struggles of the Three Kingdom heroes, while ultimately futile from their point of view, ensured their legacy continues on even after some 1800 years later: The main characters and stories of the Three Kingdoms period are far and away more well-known and remembered than entire later dynasties in mainstream Chinese culture.

* Jin ending in 7, at a banquet held after Wei has conquered Shu, as the Wei officers are celebrating and boasting while they feast whilst those who represent Shu are in a somber mood when music is played and The men of Shu there hear it and smile as they recognize it as a song of their home and country and cannot help but weep over what has happened. They maybe the same generic NPCs that you see all the time but they feel pain and despair at what has happened

** With the above in mind, everyone in Dynasty Warriors - Wei, Wu, Shu, Jin - basically died for nothing. It's especially stinging because Sima Yi's legacy has been that of more than a dozen imbeciles fighting tooth and nail over the throne, which put China in an even more chaotic position, arguably, than the Three Kingdoms. China wound up in a dark age from 300-600 AD, when the Sui Dynasty managed to FINALLY unite a fraction of China and attain some semblance of order.

True reunification will have to wait until 618 C.E, when the Tang Dynasty was established.



** Becomes HarsherInHindsight if your a fan of Wei the next scene as you know with Cao Cao dead and his son Cao Pi passing away six years later, there's nothing stopping Sima Yi and his plans now.

* While most, if not all of the bonus stages in ''8:XL'' are hilarious, Shu's "Find Red Hare" stage takes a surprisingly somber turn when the identity of the horse thief is discovered. [[spoiler:Its Lu Lingqi, and she "stole" Red Hare because she was desperate to have something to remember her father, Lu Bu, by. With Xiapi fallen and all of his soldiers either dead or defected, Red Hare is all that remains of her father's once proud legacy. She practically ''begs'' the Shu officers to let her go, but [[NoSympathy they have none of it]].]]

** The fact that the throne is empty is a sad symbol too: by the time the land is finally united, '''all''' the player characters, with the possible exceptions of Liu Shan and Wang Yuanji, have passed away. [[labelnote:]]Historically, only Jia Chong and Wen Yang lived to 280 C.E.[[/labelnote]] Most of those who fought to bring peace and unite the land never lived to see it.

* Sima Shiís death in 8. He dropped into his younger brotherís arms and tearfully told him that heíll be in charge now. Sima Zhao didnít take it very well because he knew that he might not be the right person up to the task and tried to tell him not to leave him. Thereís also Zhuge Danís response where heís on his knees, crying which is sadder later on when he rebelled against Zhao in the historical route.

* The last part of the credits in the historical routes in 8 showed the characters who have died in the game: Dian Wei and Guo Jia of Wei; Sun Jian, Sun Ce, Zhou Yu and Lu Su of Wu, Pang Tong of Shu[[note]]Oddly enough, Guan Yu, Guan Ping and Zhang Fei would have been included[[/note]] and Guo Huai, Sima Shi, Zhuge Dan and Xiahou Ba of Jin. Of course, you can prevent all these deaths which would led to the hypothetical routes.

** 7 has a more emotional response from Liu Bei regarding the deaths of his sworn brothers. When Zhao Yun tries to remind him that Wei is the real enemy, Liu Bei angrily brushed it off and wanted to go after Wu to avenge Guan Yu. Then, a messenger came and informed him that Zhang Fei was betrayed and beheaded by his own men who defected to Wu. Liu Beiís response of his other sworn brotherís death is so heartwrenching that not only he stood and staggered a bit, he smashed his chair with his sword while yelling TheBigNo, dropped to his knees and screamed in anguish. Itís even sadder than his wife dropped to her knees when she listened to the messengerís report on Zhang Fei.
** The deaths of Guan Yu and Zhange Fei marked the beginning of Shuís collapse when Liu Bei decided to go on a revenge spree on Wu, neglecting all the virtues that he had been fighting for. But he failed, got sick and died. Shuís future didnít look bright when his son took over.



** Worse? This is nearly exactly how he died in the novel-all the work and stress from planning that was all heaped onto him ended up killing him, and he died watching over the battlefield one last time while his troops burst into tears.

** If you were on a normal run or the first time, this might look a little normal, as they come really unprepared and lacking backup plans. But after you unlock the hypothetical route, this takes into a bigger TearJerker because Xu Shu was already there to offer his help that could save the day, yet ''you'' made Guan Yu ignore all those and lead to all those tragedies. In fact, this can apply to every second run of the historical route, which can make you lament "[[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot Why didn't I choose all those alternatives so this doesn't have to happen!?]]"

* Zhuge Liang's second to last cutscene in his story mode in 6. The battle for control of the land between Shu and Wei is set to be at Wu Zhang Plains. On the surface it appears that Zhuge Liang is fine and has made a master plan but once he is alone he stumbles and coughs bringing a hand to his chest in pain and his voice changes as he pleads with his body, begging it to keep going, for just one more battle so that he can end the wars at last.
