!Guilty Gear 1, X, and XX

* 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.]]

* 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'''.

** [[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.]]

* Both ending themes count as this when you factor FridgeBrilliance into the equation. [[spoiler: Both songs are actually about Sol pining away for [[TheLostLenore Aria]] and lamenting about how he could [[YouCantGoHomeAgain no longer bring back the past]]. In fact the end theme for the console version, ''Icarus'', seems like just any generic sad song about shattered dreams and a lost love at first until you reach Story Mode and are treated to a flashback where [[GenkiGirl Aria]] asks Sol if he ever wondered how it felt to be like a bird, and instead gets treated to a short debate between Frederick and That Man on the merits of idealism and romanticism vs. realism and stoicism. The guy likely never got over how much of a hardcase he had been to her owing to his secular existentialist philosophy and is now merely living out his days filled with regret.]]
