* [[spoiler: Arguably the end of the White Witch battle. Utterly trashed in her OneWingedAngel form, she reverts to her normal form, [[VillainousBreakdown pounding a fist on the ground and screaming in fury.]] Oliver gives his WorldOfCardboard speech, and the Witch starts crying. I mean, ''sobbing'', helplessly. Then for the first time, we see her face, and she looks completely and thoroughly ''helpless''. Kudos to Level 5 for making us feel bad for the one who started this whole nightmare.]]

* Quite a few of the Tales of Wonder, found in the ''Wizard's Companion'' and unlocked as the game progresses, can be pretty heavy themselves. Case in point: "The Bear-Man and the Princess's Tears."

* The ending theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6x2vsK-stA Kokoro no Kakera ('Fragments of Hearts')]], in particular the English translation: ''"If I could only be with you once more, and hold you tightly to my heart. We could walk this road together, and never ever be apart."'' This troper tears up hearing these lyrics [[spoiler: because it's referring to Oliver's pain at losing his mother.]]

* Seeing Gascon leave his brother in the past. It's subtle, but you can really tell how painful this is for both of them. By now, most players will have figured out [[spoiler: he's Swaine]], which aleviates this somewhat, as they know he'll make good on his promise to meet again. So the game pulls a double whammy: you all return to the palace... [[spoiler: and find the Emperor dying. Swaine, i.e. Gascon's future self, now has to watch his own father die. And he knew Swaine was his son all along. You see the guy break down for pretty much the first time in the entire game. [[WellDoneSonGuy "I just wanted to make you proud..."]] Sniff.]]
