*** Even before that, her entire situation was incredibly poignant. She did all that she could by praying constantly, but until Amaterasu happened upon Sei-an, it was doing absolutely nothing. Her people were crying to her out of anger and desperation and she could do almost nothing to help. When Issun calls her out on doing nothing to help her people, she understandably breaks down sobbing.

** The song that plays as it falls into the depths really doesn't help. It gives you the feeling that you just destroyed something beautiful and majestic. Even the way the cutscene is shot is emphasizing on it as it has Amaterasu quietly watching as the dragon slowly falls deeper and deeper until it disappears in the darkness, it's body totally limp. Even if ignoring the text of Issun between it, Amaterasu spends almost a minute just quietly looking on.

** Let's not forget TheReveal that this dragon [[spoiler: had been the king]] all along, making Issun breaking it to Queen Otohime even more devastating.

* You see? Nobody remembers [[spoiler:Queen Himiko]], not even the people in the game itself. Both her and Ammy knew that she had to die for her plan to work from the very beginning yet none of them mentioned it, her sacrifice is quite tear jerking. The way she manages to linger on in this world for just one more moment in order to finally determine the location of [[spoiler:Oni Island]] for this one sunset was also rather sad. The saddest part of this is the fact that after her death, the number of people that mention her ''at all'' can be counted with one hand, meaning that her sacrifice was never known by her people.
** Actually, a fairly large number of people in the Aristocratic Quarter talk about her death and how they need to keep the peace she saved for them. The truly sad thing is that the ''Emperor'' never talks about her.

Added DiffLines:

* One assumes that Amaterasu was always there to protect her people, but in Peony's time Nippon was known as "a land of great sadness", so vulnerable that Peony ''crossed the ocean'' to help it.

* During your search for the Canine Warriors, you return to Kamiki Village and find that Mushi's dog, Hayabusa, is actually one of the warriors. Hayabusa's real name is Chu. The real Hayabusa died along with Mushi's father when they were attacked by monsters in the woods. Chu found them, but was too late. With her dying breath, Hayabusa predicted that Mushi would be killed by an evil arrow from the sky on the night of the full moon. No one noticed the switch because they were the same breed. Because of her promise to Hayabusa, Chu even does so much as to refuse to return to Princess Fuse. Thankfully, the Loyalty Orb is given to Ammy, and Chu is able to fulfill her promise. Canine Warrior of Loyalty indeed.

** Mushi later reveals that he knew all along that Chu wasn't Hayabusa, because he knew that Hayabusa would've died to protect his father instead of running.

** There's also the fact that Queen Otohime [[spoiler:was actually ''pregnant'' during that time. In the credits, you even see her holding her baby. That's right. You've just made child fatherless.]]
