No first person writing. The wiki isn't about you.
* In every file I've played, just before chapter 7, where Cordelia joins, a bunch of Pegasus Knight Risen turn up. Another Challenge Map, right? Sure, until you find that those were quite possibly ''the reanimated corpses of her dead friends''.

Because someone said something only happens with condition x. Turns out the thing happens even with condition x. Just fixed it to reflect that.

As stated in the [[TearJerker/FireEmblem original page]], 99% of all death quotes are automatically {{Tear Jerker}}s. These are the ones from the Main Game itself.

** Clear any Future Past chapter having failed to save even one of [[spoiler:the children]], and Chrom will take it very personally. Even with Naga comforting him with the fact that he managed to save even a few of the otherwise doomed unfortunates, Chrom still laments that he was unable to save ''all'' of them.

*** During that cutscene, [[spoiler:just the expression on Lissa's face is pure TearJerker. Then she spends most of the next chapter crying, up until everyone pulls Chrom out of his HeroicBSOD, which is ''incredibly'' jarring given her [[GenkiGirl regular personality]]]]. ** [[spoiler:You find out later that she survived, but her memory and mental capacity are severely damaged as a result. Her solo epilogue is one of the most heartwrenching in that she never recovers from the trauma, but lives a secluded life in her simple happiness.]]

** [[spoiler: It is also possible for the player to fail to save her in this Paralogue, and have her killed by the Grimleal.

How could you let that happen?!"]].

* Nowi and Vaike's support conversations reveal that Nowi may be more deeply affected about [[WhoWantsToLiveForever a Manakete's lifespan]] than she lets on. She spends three out of the four of them being depressed about how, eventually, [[WeAreAsMayflies she will outlive everyone she knows]] and that she's ''terrified'' of being left alone. Mind you, there are some elements of [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Heartwarming]] in there as well with Vaike consoling her, telling her that [[YouAreNotAlone even after he's dead, he'll always be with her]].

This can be a pretty hefty PlayerPunch if you've grown attached to that character and even worse if you're playing in Lunatic mode and couldn't do anything to save them or lost a lot of characters. All you'll see is a long list of greyed out portraits. If you ever needed a good motivation to [[SaveScumming save scum]] in Classic mode, this would be it.

* In Death's Embrace, Brady explains that in his timeline, he often ended up having to kill the people he was trying to heal when they turned into Risen, and tells the others that they just have to remember that, no matter how hard it is to have to kill them, they're already beyond saving. While the notion is horrible in and of itself, it's the fact that Brady puts it so bluntly, without so much as a stutter. Given his status as a huge crybaby, it implies that it happened so often that he's become completely jaded to the act.

** If [[spoiler:only Lucina survives]] in ''Future Past 3'', the conversation with [[spoiler:Grima once the Avatar temporarily wrests control back]] changes entirely. It goes from bittersweet, yet ultimately hopeful, to something that is a PlayerPunch at its finest, because the utter ''[[DespairEventHorizon despair]]'' in [[spoiler:the Avatar]]'s dialogue comes across so painfully clear. And while it's agonizing on its own, if [[spoiler:the Avatar is Chrom's wife and Lucina's mother]], it adds a whole new dimension to the dialogue. ''Especially'' with this one exchange:

* The turn 3 conversation with the female avatar and Lucina, if she's her mother, in the Hot Springs Scramble DLC map. Lucina directly addresses the main problems of her staying with the avatar and Chrom, even if they all wanted it; particularly the confusion it would cause to those around her. Undeterred, the avatar promises Lucina to find a way to make it all work, so that they would all be together. But when the avatar leaves, Lucina insists to herself that the memories they have made together were more than enough to fill the void in their heart, even when they would inevitably part ways. This is even worse if you got all of Lucina's parent supports; they both end with Chrom and the avatar promising to never leave her, yet this conversation proves that Lucina ''knows'' that the roadblocks are simply too insurmountable. [[spoiler:And as if confirming this, in Lucina's solo ending she tells her infant self that she will have a happy future before leaving Ylisse forever, never again seen by her friends or family]].

He starts talking about how he hopes they'll still be "sneaking off" when they're [[GrowOldWithMe old and gray]], and she sadly says it's likely impossible, as she'll have to return to her own timeline--and even if she can't, she just doesn't see how she can stay with him, since he's Chrom's tactician and she can't stay with Chrom. Unlike the example above, though, the conversation then takes a turn for the [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]], as the Male Avatar promises her that he'll always stay by her side and find a way to make things work out--and she believes him.

*** In a HarsherInHindsight way, Lucina, not too long ago, [[spoiler: wanted to kill the Avatar in order to prevent Chrom's death and her bad future. She relents because she was convinced that everyone's bonds would win out in the end of it all. Come to this moment and the Avatar sacrifices themself in order to permanently kill Grima. So in the end, the Avatar still died to save Chrom, their friends and family, and the world. It's even worse if you accepted Lucina's judgement because in a way, the Avatar has already confirmed that they will lay their life for the people that they love, regardless if Lucina has a relationship with them or not. If the Avatar was her mother, then Lucina traveled back in time to save her father, but then sees her mother die before her. And the Avatar was her husband, then Lucina fell in love with a man who she pointed her sword at to save his best friend and her father, only to have him die for both of them later.]] Lucina just doesn't get a break no matter what timeline she's in.
