** And then the After Story DLC added alongside the ''Rev 2'' update makes his backstory even sadder. After gaining his abilities, he began WalkingTheEarth helping people as a MessianicArchetype figure. His immortality and RealityWarper abilities were revered by all, and soon they began viewing him as a god. Unfortunately, because of that, the people he helped relied on him too heavily and as such were not willing to help themselves in his absence. They began blaming and eventually hating Raven for any misfortunes that occurred while he was away. That's when he realized, in his own words, that in the end he was nothing more than a "glorified repairman". [[spoiler: Raven tells this to That Man, or rather Asuka R. Kreutz, as he's putting his plan to fight Sol into motion, admitting that he considers Asuka a true friend for being the one who gave him a reason to live after being lost in despair for so long.]]

** And that's not even the saddest part about Testament's backstory. That is reserved for the aftereffects. After years of struggling against Justice's control, even after Justice was finally killed, he was freed from her control, and was reawakened by Dizzy and tried to start a new life, his programmed hate for humanity ''became genuine''. Testament is a shell of his former self whose views became the complete opposite of what they once were, all because actually seeing the capability of human evil firsthand throughout the war and having to deal with the hunters after Dizzy's head legitimately broke his idealistic spirit.

* When thinking of it, Raven's backstory is a mix of this and NightmareFuel. He's been alive for ''millennia'', and was an actual Crusader. When he failed a mission, his entire troop was killed and he himself was executed. While being executed his eyes beheld another dimension where [[CreepyCrows a murder of crows encircled and stared at him]], while the sensation of their stares [[CruelAndUnusualDeath mirrored his body being stabbed and mutilated by his executioners.]] He survived and [[DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife wandered the earth for 1000 years without a purpose]], [[GoMadFromTheIsolation eventually]] [[ImmortalityHurts going mad]] [[FromBadToWorse and]] [[BodyHorror driving a spike through his forehead]] [[DespairEventHorizon out of despair]]. ''[[FateWorseThanDeath How fucking SHATTERED must a person be after all of that?!]]''

* Jack'O, surprisingly, is the center of one in her Arcade Mode: [[spoiler: when she and Raven are confronted by Sol, Ramlethal and Sin. After winning against Sol, she agrees to remove her mask and tell him who she is, and as she explains her origins as a Valentine and one of Aria's halves, she goes from her usual silly and child-like persona ''to her more serious and mature one, staying as such for the rest of the talk''}. Hell, Jack'O even apologizes to Sol because she cannot remember him clearly, then says that she still can feel some of Aria's emotions in her, telling her how important Sol was in her past life as such. Aside of being quite the WhamEpisode in the story, it's a huge s{{he really can act}} moment for Creator/HiromiIgarashi, whose acting is ''perfect''.]]

** A later scene shows a character only shown from the legs down standing over [[spoiler: the remains of Bedman's body]] before teleporting away. The character's legs have the same markings as Bedman's. [[spoiler: So either Bedman was able to resurrect himself, only his spirit remains...or the character was in fact ''Delilah'', coming across what was left of the brother who just wanted to see her again.]]

[[spoiler: So either Bedman was able to resurrect himself, only his spirit remains...or the character was in fact ''Delilah'', coming across what was left of the brother who just wanted to see her again. The latter is currently the most likely possibility, as the English localization says in the text box for character names "A girl" when the mystery character appears. However it's also possible that it's a gender-ambiguous pronoun in the original Japanese, since it is quite easy to do that over there.]]
