* The music Newbie melody, specially the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3YxgBrnorI older version]], every youtube comment section, old players will cry of nostalgia and remember the good memories of the game. It was the main theme of the [[NoobCave toturial island]], the first song of many players and the introduction of the game, now symbolizes a bygone era.

How can you talk about Runescape hearthwarming moments and NOT talk about newbie melody? Everytime i listen to this music I cry.

** Your mileage may definitely vary, but [[TheScrappy Yelps]]. He is a weakling among goblins who found prosperity through his brains rather than [[RapePillageAndBurn the methods goblins traditionally favor]]. During the Kyzaj tournament, the goblins pick him as their champion specifically so that he will die. And most players ''do'' kill him.

What makes it a tearjerker is the last line. This song brings up thoughts of the thousands of people who swore off Runescape entirely after updates like the removal of PVP and free trade or the update to the combat system. For them, their journey in this game, one that they probably loved, ended years ago, and, more than likely, the game is still ruined for them and they're never going to come back. --> So now, book of a thousand songs, how so, I find you pretend? For you are more than a thousand songs, and there'll never be an end. No there'll never be an end.

** Seren, like Jododu Otoku, is benevolent. Literally, she is the embodiment of empathy and light (as opposed to the young gods who are ascended mortals). Naturally, this means lots of horrible, heartbreaking things are going to happen to her. When she tries to help her elven followers live longer, she accidentally robs them of free will, which she immediately regrets. Her attempts to fix things.... don't quite work. Fridge Horror dictates that this was in effect even before then: just like Zaros compels people to be loyal just by being geographically close to them, even if he doesn't want to, it follows that Seren compels love in the same way.

* From the Mighty Falls quest, we have the final fate of Zanik. Either the player [[YouBastard kills her in cold blood]], or she is doomed to die anyway with her life force fading away as a result of Bandos dying.

* The end of ''Salt in the Wound''. Mother Mallum's host (before she attempts to possess [[spoiler:the player]]) is an old woman named Lucy who, by this point, is clearly on her deathbed. After Mallum is killed, you find out that [[spoiler:Lucy has been possessed since she was a child, and - because victims of the slugs' mind control don't remember anything that happened during possession - she still has the mind of one. She mistakes the player for one of her parents, and cries about a "nightmare" involving slugs. The player must choose to [[ThatWasNotADream tell her the truth about her possession]], or to comfort her in her final moments by assuring her that it was indeed AllJustADream. In either case, she dies at the end of the conversation. The lullaby-like music-box tune that plays during this scene really drives home the point that ''a little girl just died of old age after being trapped in a nightmare for decades''.]]

Not [[DeathByOriginStory Jododu Otoku]]. He devoted his existence to keeping a planet alive, despite the fact that the spell sapped his strength and paralyzed his body, and he could have left for another world at any time. Such a feat borders on AndIMustScream, but guess how it ends? One of the mortals Jododu Otoku tried to protect kills him just because he can. Bandos even knows it will undo everything Otoku has devoted his life to. * From the Mighty Falls quest, we have the final fate of Zanik. Either the player [[YouBastard kills her in cold blood]], or she is doomed to die anyway with her life force fading away as a result of Bandos dying.

** For years, one type of high level ranging armor says it is made from White Dragonhide, which at the time didn't exist outside of finding that armor in a Treasure trail. Some players speculated about introducing white dragons so they could be killed. BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor. ''One of a Kind'' revealed that only one, Therragorn, is left. The others were either killed to make armor [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential (which is why some players wanted them introduced)]], or were experimented on by Kerapac to create Celestial Dragons. The process was apparently painful. Made far worse when you realize that unlike every other dragon species, the White Dragons were not vicious monsters.

* The end of ''One of a Kind''. [[BiggerBad Kerapac]] offers to cure Hannibus of his infertility, but there is no guarantee, and it will require decades of Hannibus being in stasis (did I mention he's been TakenForGranite since the Second Age?). While taking a walk outside to consider, Hannibus is approached by the [[LastOfHisKind White Dragon]] from earlier in the quest who went to his home world and brought him his grandchild. It turns out the remnant of the Dragon Rider race is preparing for extinction in a vaguely Circle of Life way, and is guiding the creatures of their world so that another will become the soul of their world. The player must decide whether Hannibus should accept Kerapac's offer, or be with his family.
