* Auron's and Kinoc's falling out as friends. A minor one for Auron, but that can get really sad when you think about it (especially after watching Auron's Sphere where you see them interacting a little). Back when they were young, they used to be good friends. When they meet again, Kinoc has been corrupt and cynical religious leader. Auron (who's already a very jaded man) seems to be very disappointed to see that his old friend has become so rotten.

* Enter Luca after Operation Mi'ihen ends and you'll find a dog and cat sitting near the exit. A nearby man says their owner's a Crusader (who participated in the Operation), and he hasn't returned yet.

* It's a minor one that can be missed on your first run through since it occurs in the midst of the Zanarkand Ruins, which are basically [[BleakLevel a non-stop parade of tear-jerking scenes]], but seeing the ghostly reenactments of the moments at which past guardians volunteered their lives to complete the Final Summoning in the hope that they could save Spira is really sad, given that you know [[SenselessSacrifice how futile those hopes were]]. This makes the sense of cartharsis when Yuna [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome refuses to obey Yunalesca's command to choose a sacrifice and insists that she will be the one to break the cycle]] that much more powerful.

* The ending, wherein [[spoiler:Auron is sent to the Farplane, and Tidus, because he was created by the dreaming of the Fayth, begins to fade from existence as they depart Spira. Yuna tries to keep him from leaving, only to fall right through him in a heartbreaking scene. Before he departs, Tidus takes Yuna into a ghostly embrace from behind (cue the most bittersweet rendition of "To Zanarkand" in the entire game), then dives off the airship and reunites with his father. A montage of all the best moments in the game as seen through Yuna's memories. Yuna's final line: "The ones we have lost, and the dreams that have faded... never forget them"]]. This DownerEnding is mitigated only if you watch the credits to the very end and see TheStinger (or play the sequel). But so elegantly and effectively done, perfectly executed. Damn you, Squaresoft.

** Tidus specifically runs to Valefor, too. Past Ifrit and their summoners. He runs into her, he hits her a few times, and falls to his knees. The gesture of her wings actually comes off like she's protecting him with her wings, shielding him from the truth, since the gesture she makes is the same one she makes when performing Shield. What's more is she genuinely looks sad herself, which makes sense- [[spoiler: after all, she and her fellow aeons have helped summoners walk the path of death for centuries, even a full millennia in some cases]].

* Might be somewhere between this and FridgeHorror, concerning Seymour, of all people. [[spoiler: Yes, he's a total asshole when we meet him, and he tries to kill everyone in Spira. But just, take a moment to think about why: Due to being half human, half Guado, he didn't fit in with either. His own father exiled him because the Guado didn't like having a half-human guy living with them, and I'd doubt humans were much kinder. Then, when he was a little kid (How old was he? 9, maybe?), his mother took him to Zanarkand. Despite his begging, she decided to die. During that, she told him he had to use power to make people acknowledge him (As in, she's telling a 9 year old he'll never be liked if not for power), and not only is she becoming his Aeon, she's becoming his '''final''' aeon. As in, she's telling her little child to ''die'' for the people who haven't been kind to him even once. Now, he became a Maester of Yevon. Yevon says that death is the end of pain and sorrow. Now, most people would not want to die because death would also mean the end of joy, but how much of that did Seymour have, anyway? To him, death would most likely be something great. Later on, his sanity becomes even less stable, but I'd say at least until you kill him the second time, he might genuinely be trying to do what he thinks is the best for Spira.]] Not an excuse for most of his behaviour, but he still deserves a bit of sympathy.

And if that's not enough, [[spoiler: you can use his own mother to defeat him. Not only has she kind of told him "Yeah, kid, please go kill yourself for the people who hate you", now she herself is trying to kill him. The only person whom he thought loved him, decided to kill him. If that guy had any sanity left at this point, I'd bet you it's gone then.]]
