** He also has been removed from active duty, forcing him to secretly investigate possible psychic incidents and send Milla, Sasha and Olleander in his stead, who then get all the credit for discovering those threats. And if his secret gets discovered, then command will stop approving those missions, denying him any chance at helping others as a Psychonaut.


Added DiffLines:

** Using offensive powers on him usually results in him threatening you, with the implication that he knows that you're the one doing this. However, using Confusion causes him to temporarily revert to one of his split personalities; when he recovers, he starts worrying that his condition is worsening to the point that not even the meteorite will help him.

'''Raz:''' What? Why?\\
'''Ford:''' Years ago I was in a terrible psychic duel that left me barely alive.\\
'''Raz:''' Yeah, I read about that. They said your psyche was shattered, that you lost your mind, but... you seem fine to me.\\
'''Ford:''' Yes, when Iím down here, near the Psitanium mother lode. The concentrated power of the Psitanium pulls my thoughts together, keeps me... like my old self. But if I leave this sanctuary my psyche becomes disjointed, and I fall into one of my other personalities, with no memory of who I really am. ''(self-disgust)'' Iíd be no use to you unless you needed something rakedÖor mopped...

** The final level as a whole has a really sad undertone to it if you manage to look past the NightmareFuel and notorious DifficultySpike. We are, after all, [[spoiler:looking into the mind of a boy who wrongfully believes his father wants him to die.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' is a generally lighthearted game (and even when it's being dark, it's funny), but one simple statement from the ending can potentially make anyone choke up: [[spoiler: "Is that really what I look like in your mind?"]]

And yet, one simple statement from the ending still gets her choked up: [[spoiler: "Is that really what I look like in your mind?"]]

* This troper was utterly depressed when she found ''that'' room in Milla's mind with ''that'' vault and ''that'' box. Even her sister was silent for a bit before morosely saying 'That was sad' and leaving.

* This troper was utterly depressed when she found * Probably the most jarring example, and in turn, most effective, has to be ''that'' room in Milla's mind with ''that'' vault and ''that'' box. Even her sister was silent for a bit before morosely saying 'That was sad' and leaving.box...



* This troper's moment is finding Sasha's second memory vault. Her ''father'' went quiet for a few minutes afterward.
** The first vault is just as bad, if not worse. We don't just see [[spoiler:Sasha's mother die]], oh no, [[spoiler: we see several frames of her lovingly caring for him, before suddenly cutting to his father grieving over her deathbed and then burying her in his backyard.]] And this is all seen from ''Sasha's first-person perspective'' who, at the time, was an ''infant''.

** The second one is more of a FridgeHorror example, since its easy for a first-time viewer to mistake it for a comedic moment, but the implications of it are just devastating: Once Sasha grows older, he starts questioning his father about [[spoiler:what his mother had been like before she died]]. He remains tight-lipped about it, so Sasha decides to use his psychic powers to probe around his memories. What he finds is a series of happy memories... [[spoiler:and the page image for DirtyMindReading]]. Traumatized, [[spoiler: he runs away from home, with the implication that he never came back]].

* The asylum mates are actually a lot more depressing then their funny-crazy front you see. Gloria's mother committed suicide after Gloria told her she was mad at her for dumping her at that evil school. Fred was so extremely crushed by his defeats at the hands (Okay, mouth) of Crispin that his mind went against itself. Edgar was so utterly depressed by the loss of his girl, and coupled with the bullying from his old friends, it drove him mad (though it did give him a knack for painting), and Boyd, one of the best, silliest characters with the funnest mind-level becomes amazingly sad when you realize this is how he sees the world: Every last thing is against him. The hints about his guilt about setting his workplace on fire. The mother problems. Jesus, Psychonauts. Just... Wow.
