** When [[spoiler: Adam Fenix disintegrates into ash, Marcus just…falls to his knees, completely [[HeroicBSOD stunned]] as Anya exclaims "God!" in the background. Imagine fighting to get back to finding your father again after thinking he was dead for years, realizing that he was proud of you all along, and then he just ''disappears'' before your very eyes.]]

** [[spoiler: Equally heartbreaking is the last conversation that Dom and Marcus ever have.]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Marcus:''' Dom, ''what the FUCK are you doing?'']]
--> [[spoiler: '''Dom:''' I'm pulling the plug on them, Marcus!…Jump, will you? '''DO IT!''']]
** And if ''that'' doesn't get you crying, [[spoiler: what are Dom's last words?]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Dom:''' Never thought it would end like this, huh? Huh, Maria?]]

** Later when Marcus must break the news to Cole and Baird on Azura. The two men are ''destroyed'' when they learn of their friend's death; In a rare moment Cole loses all composure and vows revenge on Dom's death; Baird meanwhile is too stunned to even speak, and simply looks away as he processes the reality that Dom is gone.
** Adam himself is devastated, having fully expected to see Dom when Marcus made it to the island, and can only offer his condolences when finally reunited with Marcus.

** [[spoiler: The Stranded themselves qualify, given that most of Char was devastated by Hammer Of Dawn strikes and many people were killed and turned to ash, it's hard to blame them for hating the COG. Griffin is a pretty tragic figure as well, many of the people killed in the strikes were his employees, whom he considered family, and then having the remainder of his people die after being attacked by Myrrah's army(indirectly caused by the main characters), leaving him as the lone survivor in a desolate and decrepit city makes his harsh rant to Marcus a bit more understandable]]

** Even more heartwrenching as the unshakable, emotionless Marcus kneels over his father's ashes; you can actually hear his voice ''breaking''.

** [[spoiler: The destruction of Jacinto]]; humanity has managed to utterly devastate the Locust and wipe out much of the horde, but in doing so sacrificed the one city that truly provided sanctuary for humanity since the start of the war, a desperate act that cost the lives of many survivors and has left them without a home as they flee the collapsing and flooded city, knowing too well of the struggle that lies ahead but not of the new threat that is now emerging.

*** Even worse is how he actually managed to survive plunging several hundred feet into the belly of the monster, and that a few moments sooner Delta might've been able to save him, instead only arriving just as Ben is being disemboweled and vainly fighting to stay alive.

** His reaction really serves to spell out the toll the war has taken on humanity; the world's destruction was so complete that you realize that even though they've finally won, it seems as though they truly have lost everything there was to live for.

** The entire sequence where [[spoiler: Dom dies]] is one. When [[spoiler: Dom is about to crash the tanker and blow up the horde]], everyone else jumps off the building and runs to cover... except for Marcus, who just stands there and stares, because he knows what's about to happen and for that moment his mind simply couldn't deal with it. And after [[spoiler: the crash]], Anya has to damn near hold Marcus in place to keep him from [[spoiler: running into the flames to get Dom out, even though he already knows Dom is dead.]]

* [[spoiler: The biggest one of them all in ''3'' goes to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOjtv044sA4 Dom's death]], possibly for the entire series as well. He rams a junker into a tank full of Imulsion, parked at a "gas" station uner a leaking Imulsion pipeline, just so Marcus and the others can escape. And just when you think you can hold it in as he sacrifices himself, Gary Jules' DarkReprise of ''Mad World'' by TearsForFears, which is practically the series' theme song, begins to play. The one character that people never expected to die, actually did. Not to mention the people that grew attached to him after spending all those times in ''Gears 1 and 2'' co-op were affected as well.]]
