** And before that, there is an Active Time Event where you see Vivi being yelled at by a Burmecian family who escaped from the destruction of Burmecia. The father blames Vivi for the death of his father before calling him a "bastard". The wife and kids follow suit, also calling him a "bastard". All the while, Vivi is saying that he wouldn't hurt anyone. By the time Zidane sees him, Vivi is huddled against a wall, trembling.

* The moment where Queen Brahne dies on the beach outside her lifeboat. Yes, she might have gone mad with greed and killed thousands of innocent people, but that's still a young girl losing her mother and the only family she has left.

* The moment where Queen Brahne dies on the beach outside her lifeboat. Yes, she might have gone mad with greed and killed thousands of innocent people, but that's still a young girl losing her mother and the only family she has left. Her last act is to stroke Garnet's hair and apologize, saying that [[SoProudOfYou the kingdom will be better under her rule.]]

* A smaller TearJerker is near the end of the game, where you learn that Morrid, the CoolOldGuy who helped you earlier in the game and collected rare coffee, had died in an earthquake caused during the course of the game.

* A smaller TearJerker is near the end of the game, where you learn that Morrid, the CoolOldGuy who helped you earlier in the game and collected rare coffee, had died in an earthquake caused during the course of the game. However a villager girl mentions that he died happy, having tasted the rare coffee that you got for him at last. Morrid also stated that he was ready to join his departed wife, which means they're now TogetherInDeath.

* "How did you survive...?" "I didn't have a choice. I had to live. I wanted to come home to you. So... I sang your song. Our song." Oh goddammit. *sob* (qualifies also as a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}). This was then followed by the [[AwesomeMusic/FinalFantasy hauntingly beautiful]] ''Melodies of Life'' over the game credits. And did we mention that they also reshow key parts of the [=FMVs=] over the credits to jog your memory? You may let the tears flow now.

* Two more messages can be found on the Eidolon Wall, these two directed at Eiko. Even those who survived the initial attack ultimately did not last long, and as they were dying, they were well aware of what it meant for the last Summoner to be born.
--> "Eiko. You are a treasure born to a dying village. We are dying, and there is little we can do for you. We will return to the stars with one wish in mind. If legends are not born of Eidolons, and eidolons but born out of legends, let us leave this place with one wish: if we can give birth to a legend, it shall create an Eidolon that is a friend and protector of humans."
-->--
--> "Eiko, my lovely child. Until you turn 16 and have your own Eidolon to your control, stay in this village. Then build strong friendships with others. I wish for your happiness from far away."

** That scene gets to me too, largely because it's so unexpected an act of compassion, given the genre and the way [=RPGs=] usually play out. I don't know why, but just the fact of Zidane's compassion toward someone who had shown him and his friends nothing but cruelty is enough to make me tear up.

* May just be me, but for some reason, when Quina runs away at Cleyra rather than get into the life saving bubble, he was struck with unreasonable sadness. Partly due to the fact that Quina refuses due to being scared of heights, which made it even worse. Watching that tree explode was so damn hard.
** The destruction of Cleyra. There's something just plain wrong about destroying the home of what were essentially a bunch of peace-loving, nature-worshiping hippies.
*** IT was worse because I accidentally told the Cleyrans to go ''the wrong way'' because [[GuideDangIt you were supposed to know the Alexandria soldiers were ahead of you.]] AAAAGH, NOOO!!!!
*** Even worse is the fact that even if you get all of them to the top of the tree, you've just doomed them to die at Odin's lance.
*** Not quite, they escaped and can be seen around the world map at various places. I can remember seeing one of the oracles in Daeguerro and the couple in Lindblum (complete with children).
