* After finding Grimoire Weiss and rescuing Yonah. Nier breaks down when Weiss explains that there is no known cure for the black scrawl. Walking and cursing the gods for this while on his way to meet Devola. The english voice makes it clear how enraged he is at being powerless to save her daughter. Made worse in that in order to feed and keep Yonah alive, he can barely spend time with her.

** Watching the Shadowlord react... ''poorly'' to his Yonah's sacrifice is pretty heart-rending. Coming back for Ending B kicks it UpToEleven, of course.

** Watching the Shadowlord react... ''poorly'' to his Yonah's sacrifice is pretty heart-rending. Coming back for Ending B kicks it UpToEleven, of course. It's simply depressing seeing him kneel down before his replicant, completely given up any desire to exist, accepting his death right then and there. Even the replicant Nier seems to hesitate for a moment before delivering the killing blow.

** The aftermath of the Wendy boss fight in the Aerie: Emil went berserk activating his powers and disintegrated not only the massive Shade but the entirety of the Aerie along with it, including its human residents. Though they were xenophobic jerks who ruined Kainé's childhood, they were still people with families, and Emil is all too aware of that.
--> '''Emil''': ...What have I done? I killed innocent people... I killed them all.

** Hell, let's talk about Jakob for a second here. His father abandoned their family when he was little ([[spoiler: you can potentially meet him in a sidequest, where he asks how Jakob is doing]]), and his mother abandons him and his brother to run off with her lover (she and the man get killed as they try to leave, and a later sidequest reveals the man to be a con artist who was in all likelihood going to leave her as well). A year later, his brother gets killed protecting him from falling debris (which only happened because Jakob wasn't careful), and he goes ''completely insane'' from the trauma of losing his brother, and dedicates his life to destroying all the robots in the Junk Heap, lost in vengeance and madness.

** The kicker for all this, though? [[spoiler: Beepy and Kalil weren't responsible for Gideon's death. They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Kalil even says to Beepy that the two boys seemed nice and he wanted to be friends with them...]]

** Immediately after Emil's sacrifice Kainé vents her frustration by kicking the crap out of Nier, and he just takes it. Keep in mind that he's probably just realized he got a ''kid'' who was also one of his closest friends killed, and probably thinks he deserves all the hurt Kainé is unloading onto him.

* The whole fucking game. Seriously. There are very, VERY few happy things in this game, so enjoy them while they last.

** And then there's his HeroicSacrifice to save the party. As if the final goodbyes weren't bad enough, when the others are gone Emil drops his brave face and breaks down, thinking how much he wants to see them again and how he's [[IDontWantToDie terrified of dying]]. That was truly heartbreaking to watch, because no matter how heroic a sacrifice is, you're still staring death in the face.
