* ''The Fall of Reach'' explained that the future Spartans were replaced with short-lived Flash Clones when they were taken. The animated adaptation takes the FridgeHorror of that situation and shows it to you: families having one of their children suddenly becoming listless and unresponsive, before finally dying. And no known reason why.

Added DiffLines:

**[[spoiler:Kat's]] line, "[[spoiler:First glassing? Me too,]]" hits hard, as throughout the game she is presented as a cold, analytical type, and this line displays a rare moment of emotional weakness moments before her death.

** What makes this even worse is [[spoiler: Cortana's HeelFaceTurn may not be entirely of her own volition, or at least the methodology. The Warden Eternal, for all of his kowtowing and playing TheDragon to her, seems to be hell-bent on seeing AIs assume the Mantle to create an imperial peace in the galaxy not unlike the Forerunners imposed on the galaxy of old. He was more than willing to go against Cortana's wishes and attack Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris so that they wouldn't stop her, and by the end it seemed like ''he'' was more invested in the idea than Cortana was. Only time and Halo 6 will tell how this plays out, but the idea that Cortana could have her genuine hope for a better future ruled by the Created perverted by the Warden is deeply disheartening.]]

** Even more so is her line to the Chief about it, "Promise me, before this is over you'll figure out which one of us is really the machine." It's probably her harshest line to Chief while sane, since Chief is ignoring one of the closest people in his life musing over the meaning of her life as she is dying. It makes his stoicism throughout the series seem like a coping mechanism, one that he tries to keep up even as Cortana is reaching out for emotional comfort.

When the mission is over, he's still haunted by this line.
--->'''Master Chief''': She said that to me once... about being a machine.

to:

* The legendary ending. As Chief [[spoiler: goes into Cryo-Sleep, all light slowly fades, save for Cortana, who is left alone, watching her friend's lifeless body, hugging herself and seeming like she's trying to figure out what to do next.]]

to:

* After Keyes indicates his plan to evacuate the Autumn and personally crash-land the ship, Cortana has an almost understated objection that, even cutting out everything AllThereInTheManual, tells exactly how the war with the Covenant has been going.
-->'''Cortana:''' With all due respect, Sir, this war has enough ''dead'' heroes.

** "You got all of us out alive." "Not all of us..."

* Quite possibly the biggest punch in the gut ever for the franchise. [[spoiler: The joy of discovering Cortana's survival is incredibly short-lived, as you discover that she CameBackWrong and is looking to subject all sentient life to a totalitarian rule in order to bring peace. Chief tries to maintain his soldier's facade at the prospect of having to stop her at any cost. But when he sees this for himself, his first decision is to beg her to just come back home. Cortana instead traps him along with Blue Team in stasis, so that they may survive when she puts her rule into effect. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone And her face as she turns away after this]] shows how painful it is for her to do so. The worst part about all of this is that they both genuinely believe they're doing the right thing.]]
