** The game was retranslated by fans, and resulted in a very different portrayal of the Native's Village. In the original translation[[spoiler: the Natives were starving to death and the skeletons around the village were those of the villagers who starved to death. While still heroic, Hamlet's actions seemed rather random.]] In the retranslation, [[the Natives had resorted to cannibalism due to the famine, meaning Hamlet throwing himself into the fire had a bit more purpose; he did it to save Kara and the others from being eaten. What's interesting is that the cannibalism is portrayed in a sympathetic and sad light. They're not monsters, they're people desperate to survive, and doing the absolute last thing they want to do to live. The boy who shows you a skeleton with tears in his eyes in particular has a whole new meaning in this translation.]]

* The ending, oh that ending. Just as it seems that Will and Kara have earned their happy ending, [[spoiler: they are told that, with Dark Gaia gone, the world was turning back to what it would have been without its influence. That is: ''history itself'' was being rewritten, and when they returned to Earth, not only they'd be separated, they would not retain any memory from this timeline. Of course, they do not take this kindly, so they defiantly promise to remember and search for each other.]] ([[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and it does work.]] ]])

* In the Native's Village, [[spoiler: Hamlet's HeroicSacrifice.]] Less ambiguously, the ending, when it emerges that [[spoiler: because time moves at a different rate on the comet, thousands of years have passed for Will and Kara, meaning they return to Earth in the modern era with everything they knew having gone. Granted, they themselves remain together at the end, but still...]]

* In another early location, it's mentioned that the luxurious carpets in Edward Castle take forty years to make. In one of the last areas of the game, you visit the town these carpets are made in. It's revealed that the female workers spend their entire lives making these carpets by hand, from their childhood to adulthood.

* The backstory of your opponent for [[RussianRoulette Russian Glass.]] He's a longtime champion of the game, but [[spoiler: is secretly suffering from a terminal disease. When you face him, he's gotten to the point where he's playing to lose, so that his family will live a comfortable life with the money he accumulated from years of winning.]] The next morning when his now-widow gives you his will, she also leaves you with a single sentence that puts the icing on this TearJerker cake: [[spoiler: "We don't need money. Real joy is being with those you love."]]

** And much later in Watermia, you can find his children who have no idea he's dead, and are still expressing hope that he'll return. You can't tell them otherwise, either.
