* Axl's predicament in ''-REVELATOR-''. [[spoiler: In his Arcade Mode story, he finds out that both he and I-no, who are time travelers, aren't even human. They're beings called "magical foci" which are formed in the Backyard from people's deepest desires, and have the ability to change the course of the future. Because of their immense, world-altering power, they are seen as "errors" by the Backyard. Jack-O' then reveals to him that he cannot go back to his own timeline, because that possibility no longer exists. The current world has rendered it impossible, and if he does decide to do something to change that, then the current world will be destroyed - erased from the flow of time and overwritten by Axl's decision. He spends the entirety of Story Mode in a deep depression, completely lost on what to do until the very end, where he chooses the current world over his dream of seeing his girlfriend Megumi again. He bursts into tears as he saves Sol.]]

* [[spoiler: As of -REVELATOR-, '''Bedman's entire existence'''. He and his sister were born with a condition that caused their minds to accelerate and grow at a rapid pace, but this rendered their bodies ill and frail because they couldn't keep up with the speed at which their minds processed information. To save their lives, their parents had no other option but to put them into a permanent state of sleep. Their minds, however, had accelerated to the point where they could potentially kill people from the dream world, because the dream world is, in fact, the Backyard. The Universal Will found him and lured him into becoming her pawn in exchange for the Absolute World. He was tricked into believing that the "Absolute World" meant that he could see his sister again and be able to leave a lasting mark on reality without the need for killing. Ariels used him as her personal assassin, but he continued rolling with it because the ends justified his means. His entire motivations are then shattered by Robo-Ky, and he is defeated by Venom. He declares his intentions to use his remaining life to tend to the victims, but Ariels reveals her deception in a sickeningly cruel fashion, and reveals that the Absolute World is one in which all of humanity is destroyed and replaced with her "perfect humans". Bedman flies into a rage at his betrayal and the weight of his sins finally dawning on him, and defiantly but futilely tries to defeat Ariels. He then dies by turning into stone and crumbling away, regretfully crying that he has to atone.

* Elphelt's Episode Mode story in -REVELATOR-. Full stop. [[spoiler: At first, it seems like she's forgotten everything and has returned to her original programming of finding true love, but being forbidden by the Universal Will to actually fall in love. In her sub-boss fight, it's revealed that all of her experinces from the 1st fight onwards have been a simulation. She is presented with a simulation of Sol that acts absolutely nothing like him, until Bedman decides he has had enough of Ariels' simulation and pleads with Elphelt in a heartfelt manner to not wake up from the dream-state she's in. Elphelt doesn't listen, and when she wakes up, '''she is inside of Justice, acting as her core'''.]]

** Other fans see this scene as {{Narm}} because's of Sol's cry and the choice of BGM. While some [[YaoiFangirl fans]] [[ShippingGoggles see this]] [[ILetGwenStacyDie differently.]] ([[FoeYay And they can't be blamed]])

* [[spoiler: Three words: ''Ky getting shot''. One of the most powerful scenes in the entire story, even before TheReveal that he survives because he's now part-Gear.]]

* Sol's ending in the first game. This is the moment that establishes Sol's characterization as a ByronicHero, and kickstarts the plot of the series. A mortally-wounded Justice furiously demands to know why Sol, a Gear, is immune to her mind control abilities as a Commander Gear. Sol reveals he is the Prototype Gear, and Justice's last words are her realizing that Sol is the man she once knew as Frederick, and wishing that she, him, and That Man could be together again. With those words, a shocking and tragic revelation dawns upon Sol - Justice is Aria, his former lover, and he has just killed her, losing her for a second time. Enraged, Sol swears to find That Man and beat some answers out of him.
** Ever thought this could be any sadder? Justice's story mode ending in Accent Core Plus is this exact scene, same lines of dialogue and all, but now with voice acting.

* [[spoiler:The flashback of the destruction of Japan. ''No one was happy''. The scientist who'd be known as That Man turned Aria into the Justice that destroyed Japan because of desperation that an unknown force is coming out from Japan and would wipe out humanity. We saw how That Man sounded full of anguish as he overrode the command for Justice to unleash the Gamma Ray on Japan, and in the end [[IDidWhatIHadToDo apologized for what he had to do.]] Compounding on this, Aria was utterly devastated at the damage she caused.]]

** [[spoiler: Recent information regarding -REVELATOR- reveals that her best was not enough. She's gone right back to her original programming, complete with a new look. She now wears a prisoner's uniform, has white hair, and talks in an emotionless, robotic fashion again.]]

* Elphelt's fate. [[spoiler: After being stopped by Sol, she begins to disappear. Despite being shielded by Absolute Defense: Felion, Sol continues punching at it in order to jog her memory and bring the Elphelt that they all know back. After coming to her senses, she attempts to self-destruct as her last act of having free will, but is stopped by Ramlethal, who finally gains emotions and tells her to hold out hope that they will save her. With tears in her eyes, Elphelt ascends into the sky and vanishes, saying she will do her best.]]
