* When you defeat the Tonberry King, he transforms into a normal Tonberry and joins your party, but not before saying "I'm sorry." Now, is he apologizing to Squall and Co. for attacking them, or to the scores of Tonberries he failed to avenge as these [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans came in and began to butcher them all for no apparent reason]]?

* To some, the GameOver screen. Seeing Squall's broken Gunblade and Rinoa's feather with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6e4l-vVKY4g a sad music playing]] can really tug at your heartstrings.

* No mention of Irvine's entire situation from his introduction? It's not obvious at first but going through a second playthrough, armed with the revelation, makes you feel for the poor guy, if you were the kind of person who [[spoiler: valued old friendships]]: [[spoiler: He reveals later in Trabia Garden and helps the main party rember that they (bar Rinoa) and Seifer were all friends in the same orphanage, raised by Edea and Cid before the former was possessed by Ultimecia]]. What initially seems like a cocky, and some would find annoying, behavior when he's first introduced that he seems to fail to live up to when it comes time to snipe Edea [[spoiler: is in fact a mask to hide that he's severely hurt and disappointed none of his old friends remember him and that he can't bring himself to shoot their mother figure, even if she isn't who she used to be. Never mind that these old friends who don't remember him or her seem so casual in the idea of killing her. You can tell he wants to tell them but it would be pointless because of the urgency of the situation and they wouldn't even know what he was talking about anyway]]. Rather heartbreaking, really.

** To a lesser extent, when he DOES try to go through with the sniping and fails because of Edea's barrier, [[spoiler: the way he slumps after gives the feeling that he's secretly relieved the bullet was blocked, thus saving him the guilt of killing their mother figure]]

* The entire reason Ellone puts the characters through mind-travel. [[spoiler: She's living with immense guilt that Laguna had left Raine to look for her, and thus not only wasn't at Raine's side when she died but he didn't even know he had a son. So Ellone had her friends from the orphanage--including Laguna's son Squall--mind-travel to the past to try and communicate to Laguna that he shouldn't leave Raine to look for her. But what Ellone didn't realize was that the characters she selected for mind-travel had already experienced memory loss from using Guardian Forces and so they had no idea what the experiences even were.]]

** [[spoiler: Squall trapped in Time Compression and as he catches Rinoa's feather, he tries so hard to focus on her but the images are blurry but he keeps trying anyway and then he sees an image of Rinoa in space and her helmet shattering as she dies and he ends up crying and that's when he collapses and is found by Rinoa and is saved by her.]]

** It gets even more heartwrenching to know that he still hasn't moved on, almost twenty years later, when [[spoiler: he goes and sadly visits Raine's grave, remembering the night he proposed to her on the exact same hill in Winhill.]]
