* Any time the song "Final Fantasy" plays, mostly because you know (in most cases) that your adventure's truly over, and you'll never see any of these characters you've grown to love ever again...

* The defeat of the Shadow Lord does this to me every time. You see, [[spoiler: Raogrimm's love Cornelia died protecting him, and as a result of the anquish he succumbed to despair and anger and was transformed into the Shadow Lord. When he is defeated, Cornelia's ghost appears to remind Raogrimm of who he once was. His final dying words? "Cornelia, finally may we meet again."]]

* The past story line of San d'Oria subverting [[spoiler:InfantImmortality by killing off Machegue. While trying to regroup with The Adventurer, Cyranuce and Excenmille in Pashhow Marshlands, he comes across across of group of orcs and gains some critical information, but is fatally injured while trying to escape. While he is able to die happy knowing he was able to pass on the information, the reaction of the other Young Griffons as they come to terms with their friends death is just too much]]

[[spoiler: After finding out his sister was kidnapped by [[TheResistance the Corpse Brigade]]]], Delita feels powerless and unable to help, but finds some relief in sharing childhood memories with Ramza about making whistles of a blade of grass...
* [[spoiler: Milleuda]]'s death, '''PERIOD'''. Add the fact that it caused the [[spoiler: [[RebelLeader Wiegraf]]]]'s {{start of darkness}}. Also this is an epic example of a well delivered {{player punch}}.
* [[spoiler: [[WellIntentionedExtremist Izlude]]]]'s death. [[UnwittingPawn The poor guy had been tricked]] [[spoiler: by his own father, who is possessed by an evil demon]], to [[TokenGoodTeammate work for the bad guys]], but after finding out the truth [[note]] about the possession [[/note]] he [[spoiler: [[HeelFaceTurn turns against]] him and [[HeroicSacrifice fights him until is deadly wounded]]]]. In his last moments he shows regret to Alma and Ramza for his previous actions.

* The Black Knight. Oh god, the Black Knight. [[spoiler: So there's this guy named Leon Esla who decides to help this preacher, Hurdy, who's a guy that wishes to rid the world of all Miasma. His research gets them to take them to the abyss where they manage to get to Mount Vellenge, where the BigBad wiped both of their memories. Hurdy's personality basically split into two egos, while Leon took the brunt of the wipe and lost all his memories. He then wanders the world, forever chasing after this strange light which he believes to have stolen his memories. Eventually there's a cutscene where he fights this light while near a caravan that has this little boy who believes the Black Knight killed his dad, and stabs him. Just before he dies, the Knight seems to regain his memories and die peacefully. Now, the boy who killed him? His name was Leon. Leon Esla, named for the father he never knew.]]
* There's an option to talk and befriend a researcher named De Nam, who's basically finding a way to live with the Miasma. This involves slowly taking in miasma water in Conall Curach, a painful process, so that he may get used to it. His last letter to you is in broken english, requesting you to see him in Conall Curach [[spoiler: Depending on who you ask, this had three outcomes. 1, He turned into a monster and requested you to come because he's insane now and wants to kill you/request for your help. 2, He was driven insane, requests you come so that you can help him, and is killed by a monster before you get to him. 3, He was driven insane by the miasma and the ever growing hopelessness of the whole thing, and like the Selkies in this area before him, he dies of miasma poisoning and was reincarnated as a monster. Either way, you find his bandanna on one of the monsters you beat there, and the pure subtlety of it usually kicks you in the gut one way or another.]]

** Mission#014:Golden Clock. Marche teams up with Ritz and Shara to take out some counterfeiters. At the beginning of the mission, Marche is worried that they'll turn him in to the palace, since he has a bounty on his head, but Ritz tells Marche that she wouldn't sell out a friend for extra gil. During the fight, Ritz basically tells Marche that she doesn't want to leave this place, and that she's surprised he does because nobody calls him 'new kid' here or teases him. Afterward, Ritz not only flat out refuses to give him any help at all, but also tells him that next time, she would turn him in to the palace, so he shouldn't consider her a friend, completely contradicting her previous statement. So now Marche has one friend who's placed a bounty on his head and adding new law restrictions, one who's willing to sell him out for, as we find out, incredibly selfish reasons, and at this point no one else from his world. All Marche can do is hang his head and walk off the stage like a kicked puppy.

* In the past Windurst story, has the scene when [[spoiler:Karahu-Baruha and Robel-Akbel goe off to summon Fenrir knowing they will die in the process. There are two moments that are incredibly tear jerkey. One Star Sibyl breaking down and crying, while struggling to give Karahu-Baruha, her lover, his final command. This is followed by a moment where Robel-Akbel, who is actually Karahu-Baruha from a future where Windurst was lost and the Star Sibyl killed, choosing not to say goodbye to Star Sibyl]]
* The past story line of San d'Oria subverting [[spoiler:InfantImmortality by killing off Machegue. While trying to regroup with The Adventurer, Cyranuce and Excenmille in Pashhow Marshlands, he comes across across of group of orcs and gains some critical information, but is fatally injured while trying to escape.

---> "I love someone whom I can never have. The very thought haunts me each moment I draw breath. It is more than I can bear. [[DrivenToSuicide And so I wish to quit this mortal life.]] There is a substance known as [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast zombie powder]] which may grant me the relief I so desperately seek. Please, find this and bring it to me. End my suffering. -Glefein"
** And then it goes FromBadToWorse. The quest points you toward the Witch of the Fens, an expert in potions and the like. She tells you that the Zombie Powder [[CaptainObvious will turn the man into a zombie]] and points you to the area where you'll find the zombies from which the powder is harvested. Upon arriving there, another secondary character (this one with a...tenuous relationship with the law) will tell you that the area is also populated by Dreamhares, from which a draught can be made that would effectively erase all of the man's memories. Then the mission starts, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAWJts1zKEM "Eternity"]] starts up, and the player is left to decide: will you follow the mission to the letter (as is the duty of a clan) and assist in the man's suicide? Or will you bend the rules and instead destroy every memory the man has ever known, in the hopes that he can find happiness in his new life? It sounds simple if you're the kind of person that holds life to be sacred, but think about it; erasing the man's memories seems [[MindRape unethical]], prone to him blundering into an identical situation further down the line, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and like it would be disobeying his "final" request.]]
