* First and foremost, if a unit dies, except in rare circumstances in earlier games or under the Casual or Phoenix modes in more modern games, they are gone ''[[FinalDeath for good]]''. Depending on the game and character, you may get to see their FamousLastWords. In games where the PlayerCharacter is an avatar you give a name to, losing someone who is a Support, or worse, your ''spouse'', can feel as if you just lost a real best friend or significant other.

More recent titles like Echoes with dubbing and even post-battle dialogue take this knife in your heart and ''twist'' it with convincing voice acting, having other characters ''react'' to the loss of their loved ones at the end of battle.

* The twelfth game gives us [[spoiler: anything and everything to do with Katarina]]. Though what mostly stands out would be [[spoiler: her death quote in 16x.]]

* ''FireEmblem 4'': It was bad enough being blindsided halfway through the game when [[spoiler:Ethlyn and Quan are killed and their daughter Altena taken captive]], but that very same chapter ends with [[spoiler:your ally Arvis betraying you and murdering nearly every available playable character, including the main character Sigurd]].
** Ironically, [[spoiler:Arvis himself]] becomes tearjerker material in the second half. [[spoiler:He's lost the woman he loved, his son's been turned evil, his empire and all his plans were ruined by Manfroy, Azel's long dead by this point...all that's left for him is death]].
** And for some extra "fun", read the manga. For starters, there's the entire subplot about [[spoiler:Eldigan and Raquesis, especially her total emotional breakdown after he died...]] In general, that thing is excellent at capturing the characters' emotions and personalities and all, which makes the entire thing extra depressing if you see something good happen to them for once, while knowing [[spoiler:of the great plot twist of Chapter 5.]] This creates a constant air of uncomfortable dread.
** Seliph's conversation with [[spoiler:the ghost of his parents after killing Arvis, especially with the remixed version of Sigurd's theme.]]
* In FireEmblem 4, try to pair Lewyn with Tailto. Then get him to talk with Teeny in Chapter 10 (through Seliph). [[spoiler:Teeny will then reveal Tailto's [[BreakTheCutie downward spiral]] from a GenkiGirl into a very depressed BrokenBird thanks to that [[EvilMatriarch bitch of a sister-in-law Hilda]]. It even makes Lewyn, who is all aloof the deaths of his other potential wives, actually BAWL. He'd dismiss it as a [[SandInMyEyes sand in his eyes]], though.]]
** If you pair him with Sylvia and then get him to talk to Leen, the results are also pretty sad. [[spoiler:Leen will tell him about herself and her lonely years at the Darna orphanage, and how she wonders what she did to deserve abandonment. Lewyn will try to cheer her up by saying her parents had good reasons to leave her there but they'll come back to her some day... then Leen mentions that she's often felt watched over by someone else, and she wants to know who and where her MysteriousProtector is. And Lewyn can't tell her that ''he'' is her dad, maybe because after being revived/possessed by Forseti, he can't remember everything clearly...]]
* Leif and Seliph's conversation in chapter 7 of ''Seisen no Keifu''.
--> '''Seliph:''' ''Prince Leif, I can't begin to express my sorrows to you.''
** Remember, Seliph and Leif are ''cousins''. Their dads were best friends. They should have been able to grow up seeing each other on a regular basis, but because of how the war turned out, they only meet for the first time as teenagers.
* Ferry's HeroicBSOD in ''Seisen'', when she learns [[spoiler:that Mahnya, her beloved older sister, was killed by the {{Face Heel Turn}}ed Pamela.]]
--> '''Ferry''': Please! Somebody tell me it's not true!
** And in the second part, when [[spoiler:Altenna thanks Fin for raising her brother Leaf and then mentions how she vaguely remembers playing and spending time with him before things went downhill... and Fin [[ManlyTears starts crying]].]]
* The part from Seisen no Keifu in which [[spoiler:Diadora is subjected to HypnotizeThePrincess by Manfloy]] was already sad in the game. [[AdaptationExpansion The Oosawa manga, though?]] Made it ''far'' worse, since [[spoiler:not only is she captured while trying to fight against Manfroy to protect Augusty castle [[MamaBear and the three children with her]] (baby!Seliph, Oifey and Shanan), [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v03/c018/33.html but we get to see]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v03/c018/34.html her train of thoughts]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v03/c018/35.html when she's being brainwashed]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v03/c018/36.html and how she tearfully attempts to fight back]], [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v03/c018/37.html but in the end she can't do anything]].]] Holy ''crap''...
** Don't forget Oosawa's rendition of [[spoiler:Eldigan's death and Raquesis almost crossing the DespairEventHorizon afterwards, barely avoiding it thanks to Finn.]] Those were damn well-done and sad too.
* Also, Oosawa's version of [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v05/c031/24.html Sylvia's]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v05/c031/25.html challenge]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v05/c031/26.html to Fury]]. [[TheWoobie Aw Sylvia, you poor baby.]] Made worse because [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v05/c031/27.html Fury]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v05/c031/28.html later cries]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/fire_emblem_seisen_no_keifu/v05/c031/29.html in Mahnya's arms too.]]
* In the Oosawa manga, Ferry ends up meeting Sigurd when one the Agustrian soldiers impales a child after the boy's mother pleaded to be allowed to flee. Ferry and her team take the boy to the castle to have him healed, and she catches a glimpse of Lewyn as she does. She wonders if it's an illusion, but stays focused on getting the child medical help. [[spoiler:The kid doesn't make it.]]
* Despite being LighterAndSofter, the Nuts Fujimori manga has a surprising tear jerker in the last chapter. Sigurd meets with his father and receives the Tyrfing Sword. He looks into the sword's reflection and sees [[spoiler:the future Seliph, Oifey and Shanan]]. Sigurd gestures for Oifey to bring Seliph to him so Vylon can see his grandson. [[spoiler:It ends up being the last thing he sees.]]
* The Nea Fuyuki manga of Part 2 of ''Geneology'' expands on Ares's confrontation with Seliph. The guy lost both of his parents at a very early age, and grew up believing that [[spoiler:Sigurd had killed his father (which, depending on your actions, might be the case)]], and used that hatred as fuel for living. For him, the happiest moment of his life is being able to [[spoiler:[[SinsOfTheFather fight Seliph, Sigurd's son]].]] Even Seliph seems upset by the story.
