There's a reason the image is the one highlighting the TearJerker page for the series as a whole.

* The ending of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'' and the death of [[spoiler:The Boss]] was a very intentional example designed to show [[spoiler:Naked Snake, aka Big Boss']] StartOfDarkness. [[spoiler:When she is defeated and asks Snake to kill her, he aims a gun at her head and the game waits for you to press the fire button]]. It is quite possibly the biggest PlayerPunch in the entire series.

* The Boss' speech before the fight against her, where she gives her backstory and a deeper understanding of her motivations. Even before finding out she's a [[spoiler:FakeDefector]], all of your thoughts that she's anything but a good woman should disappear at that point. Only making the fight against her and its aftermath more gutwrenching.

* Snake not uttering a word during his debriefing at the end, being too heartbroken over the information EVA revealed in her tape to even speak. As he leaves without saying anything, Para-Medic is visibly concerned.

* The flower petals in [[spoiler: The Boss']] death scene were extremely poignant, especially considering the different cultural connotations of the color white. In Western culture, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and is worn by the bride at weddings. In Eastern culture, it symbolizes death, and is worn at funerals. Red is also subject to such duality. Western culture views red as bloody and impure, while Eastern culture views it as a color of celebration. So the petals turning from white to red actually has two meanings: the first is that it symbolizes Naked Snake's loss of innocence as he inherits the title of "Boss" and becomes Big Boss; the second being that while [[spoiler: The Boss']] death is sad, she's moved on to a better place.

--> '''EVA:''' Snake...'''EVA''': [[spoiler:Snake... the world will never know what she did.]]
** The final line in the game too:
--> [[spoiler:'''EVA''': She was a real hero... ''She was a true patriot.'']]



** Snake Eater too. Despite being surprisingly fun and upbeat, the song also foreshadows many events in the game including the demise of The Boss.

** You don't see EVA's face for any of the last portion of the ending scene, but you hear her start to break down and sob. Listening to her voice cracking on the last part of her voiceover, coupled with the visual on-screen at that moment, makes it very hard to not get choked up along with her.
