* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', the scene that plays upon your return to Eruyt Village after [[spoiler:rescuing Mjrn]]. To sum up: [[spoiler:Mjrn, having seen the world outside of their home, begs her sister, the Viera leader Jote, to change their isolationist and essentially xenophobic ways. Fran, however, convinces Mjrn to stay so she'll never have to deal with the same pain and loneliness she went through by abandoning the Wood. She then asks Jote if the Wood hates her and, after speaking to it, Jote replies that it doesn't. Fran's reply before leaving is quite solemn: "A pleasant lie, that."]]

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII: RevenantWings'', after having spent most of the game opening up to you [[spoiler:and regaining his anima,]] when Llyud [[spoiler:performs a HeroicSacrifice, and takes an attack from Feolthanos meant for Vaan, although he survives, Llyud is striped of the anima he spent ''the whole game regaining''. He's just an emotionless shell again.]] What makes this ''worse'' however, is if you go an talk to Llyud on the Bridge, or in the Sky Saloon, with him only saying [[spoiler:that it "feels like a fire inside [of him] has gone", "words elude me", and the worst one of the lot: "..."]] Not only is it a TearJerker, it's a pretty darn big PlayerPunch too.

*** Adding to this, [[spoiler:the credits appear to show Balthier holding a baby, until you realize that it's actually '''Cid''' holding a baby Balthier, looking both completely sane and just like his son. [[PlayerPunch The fact that the music in the credit swells to a heartbreaking violin piece does not help the matters.]]]]

* This exchange between Basch and Judge Gabranth after the party's second boss fight with the latter:
-->'''Gabranth''': *pants and points a sword at Basch* Have you your fill of this?
-->'''Basch''': I would ask you the same. Let this end...[[spoiler: Noah.]]
-->'''Gabranth''': *falls to one knee and sighs wearily* I've no right to be called by that name.
-->'''Basch''': Then ''live'', and reclaim it.
** And he does indeed: he fights alongside your party during the second stage of the final boss fight with [[spoiler: Emperor Vayne.]]

** Admit it, his entire back story is extremely tragic in nature.

* After [[spoiler:Judge Bergan is defeated in Mt. Bur-Omisace,]] the devastation is terrible. Talking to the wounded refugees and seeing the burning of their tents in the distance only adds to the PlayerPunch. But the final blow is the sad music that plays in the background.

* "Hadn't you best be off, fool of a pirate?" [[spoiler: Even if you were meant to hate Cid, the way his death has a way of making you terribly upset, even if it is short.]]

** This troper was shocked not only when [[spoiler:Reks died]], but a few cutscenes after when he was [[spoiler:in the hospital and Vaan sees Reks as a broken shell of what he was]] in the Prologue. This troper literally put the game down for 15 minutes and shed a tear for him in that moment. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qh052DaQ56M&feature=related Link for the scene is here.]]



* THE CREDITS. UGGGGHHHH. Every single picture makes you think of how much these character's lives were ruined. Rasler and Ashe? [[spoiler: He's dead, and she's [[LonelyAtTheTop all alone]] and is no longer the happy little girl she apparently once was.]] Vaan and Penelo? [[spoiler: All their family is dead.]] Balthier and Fran? [[spoiler: She can no longer return to her home and family, and his father is crazy and dead.]] Al-Cid? [[spoiler: Oh wait, he's got a ton of girls, nevermind.]] Basch and [[spoiler: Noah]]? [[spoiler: Separated for years, and now one's dead, the other is still seen as a traitor and is stuck as Noah's replacement.]] Vayne and Larsa? [[spoiler: Vayne died fighting for an ''essentially'' noble cause, and Larsa has no family left and the weight of an empire on his young shoulders.]] Cid? [[spoiler: BAWWWWWW UGHHHH LOOK AT HIM AND BABY BALTHIER! *sob*]] The somewhat cheerful music somehow makes this all so much worse, like you're looking at how things ''should'' have been. Yeah, good luck making it to the end of the credits without feeling depressed.
