** 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 majesticmajestic. 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.

** Well, he isn't really the last, there's also Kaguya, who goes off in a rocket and is never seen again.

** Well, he isn't really the last, there's also Kaguya, who goes off in a rocket and is never seen again. Which is a TearJerker in its own right since she flies off in the hope of finding out who she is and where she comes from. If Waka and [[spoiler: the Celestials]] can be believed, then [[spoiler: she will be entirely alone and possibly with no way to leave.]]

** Which makes it all the worse when you realize his final words are how he wishes he could offer you a flower in congratulations and that this is the first time he's enjoyed himself so much. He then proceeds to turn himself into a flower and, even though all enemies do that when they die in this game, it hits home that much harder because his final act becomes the fulfillment of his final desire.

What's worse is that a lot of players don't even realize this and will simply continue their quest, ignoring his little flower once he is gone.

** She does promise to come back, but since she never returns, its left open if she survived the flight or if her rocket even has enough power to allow her return to begin with.

** 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.

*** 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.

** Made worse when you find out that [[spoiler: there's no one left on the moon due to a cataclysm. After all, that's why Waka left.]]
