* Meche's look of defeat after she dies is somewhat somber, but for those who have lost someone to cancer or some other disease, it's absolutely painful to hear and see.

** It's also the fact that Manny has deliberately misidentified a corpse, meaning that any loved ones that soul had will never hear definitive news about what happened to him.

* While most of the [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption morally questionable]] stuff Manny has to do in the game is par for the course both for AdventureGames and the setting of the game in general, one moment in particular is very hard not to feel [[WhatTheHellPlayer really guilty]] about: in Year 2, Manny has to [[spoiler:drug one of Velasco's crewmembers, steal his identifications, and then hide them in an unidentified body in order to trick [[TheCoroner Membrillo]] into declaring him dead]]. Compared to the rest of the process, which is mostly comprised of [[CrowningMomentOfFunny comedy]], Velascos' reaction to the news is surprisingly sad. What's worse is that both Toto and Membrillo refer to the sailor as "one of your boys" when talking to Velasco, implying he was AFatherToHisMen.

Ironically, considering how Year 3 begins, Manny saved his life (and Velasco knows Naranja is still alive after Manny leaves.)

Cleaning up and fleshing out.
* Meche's look of defeat and "Guess they couldn't save me, huh?" is somewhat somber. But for those who have lost someone to cancer or some other disease, it's absolute pain to hear and see. * "You were the best boss I ever had." * Salvador [[spoiler: had a number nine ticket all along.]] Manny's reaction says it all.

** And it gets even worse when Manny discovers a clue she left for him at Toto Santos's scrimshaw parlor. Upon hearing her name, the normally antisocial Toto suddenly lights up and confirms that she visited him earlier. "Sweet girl. Like a daughter to me. Tell her Papa Toto says hello." Manny just goes "Oh, right", and the game never makes it clear whether or not Toto eventually found out the truth...

-->'''Manny:''' ''(reading plaque)'' Beloved Sanspoof: This regal and majestic feline was a record-holder for speed, and a favorite of the crowds here in Rubacava for many years until her career was suddenly and tragically cut short on the second week of the racing season, when the airship Olivia 1, on its maiden voyage, crashed onto the track mid-race, and exploded. Many bereaved fans testified later that, before the blimp hit, Sanspoof... was in the lead.
