* The music Newbie melody, specially the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3YxgBrnorI older version]]. In 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 Tuturial Island]], the first song of many players and the introduction of the game, now symbolizing a bygone era.

* The Lord of Vampyrium, full stop. At long last, you are ready to take down [[BigBad Lord Drakan]]. You've fought alongside the Myreque for years now, done so much together, seen so much evil, and no, finally, is your big moment! [[spoiler: one by one, all but you and Safalaan, Veliaf and Ivan fall to Drakan. When you finally kill him, Vanescula betrays you by (seemingly) killing Safalaan by draining his blood, stating that with it in her, she can cross the river Salve, and she can use haemalchemy to transfer that resistance to every vampyre. And the worst part? She doesn't go CardCarryingVillain on you, she says that she can force Misthalin to give them blood, thus requiring humans to give less blood less frequently, freeing her race from starvation and the humans from mistreatment. She killed Safalaan and is going to invade humanity, but.... [[TheExtremistWasRight what if she's doing the right thing?]]]]

* During the Fremennik Saga, ''Vengeance'' we get a PerspectiveFlip from a typical dungeon in Daemonheim, as one of the people that the "heroes" fight as she tries to take her [[TitleDrop vengeance]] on the people who killed her little brother. Throughout the Saga, you come across the Forgotten Warrior's friends and family. And they all have unique examine texts, like "[[RetIrony She was about to retire]]," "He knew more dirty jokes than anyone," and "He could out-drink anyone." And that's when you realize exactly how many of these people that you've killed in proportion to your Dungeoneering level. [[VideoGameCaringPotential It quickly becomes]] NightmareFuel as the story goes on.

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.
** The music also start very happy and ingenuous, but ends fading away in a sad and harthwarming way, like if it's a last goodbye to the players.

* During the Fremennik Saga, ''Vengeance'' we get The [[VillainEpisode Vengeance!]] [[InAnotherMansShoes saga]] is a [[SympatheticPOV surprisingly poignant]] PerspectiveFlip from the view of a typical dungeon female Forgotten Warrior in Daemonheim, as Daemonheim. The saga begins with you in control of a normal adventuring party comprised of a few player stereotypes (one who's [[BloodKnight obsessed with killing]], a role-player, a rule breaker, and their [[OnlySaneMan sane team leader]]); after entering a room and seemingly killing everyone within it, you then take control of one of the people that victims who's NotQuiteDead. She awakes, poisoned, and surrounded by her dead comrades and her dead little brother (Taevas). She continues to wander through the "heroes" fight dungeon, the poison slowly killing her, as she tries to take her [[TitleDrop vengeance]] on the people who killed her little brother. Throughout the Saga, you come across the Forgotten Warrior's friends runs into more dead friends, and family. And they all each have unique examine texts, like "[[RetIrony She was about to retire]]," "He knew more dirty jokes than anyone," and "He could out-drink anyone." And anyone," and that's when you realize exactly how many of these people [[YouBastard that you've killed killed]] in proportion to your Dungeoneering level. [[VideoGameCaringPotential level. It quickly becomes]] becomes NightmareFuel as the story goes on.
warrior confronts and kills the members of the adventuring party that attacked them, and struggles with her own madness as her thirst for revenge begins to warp her mind, [[NotSoDifferent turning her into one of the very killers that she hunts...]]

** At the same time, some veteran players joined the game even earlier, before Tutorial Island ever existed[[note]]at that point, the game just plunked you right down in Lumbridge Castle[[/note]] -- so for them it just doesn't hold the same impact.

** Crosses into Heartwarming at the conclusion of ''Nomad's Elegy'', [[spoiler:where Ictharin and Death can allow her to live free of any divine influence in the mortal realm, and you can meet her again in her new job as the Custodian of the Soul Obelisk.]]

Added DiffLines:

* If you're aligned with Bandos and [[spoiler: killed Zanik]] in the Mighty Fall, there's unique dialog with [[spoiler: her]] in Nomad's Elegy, where the player tries to justify their actions. It is not taken well.

** 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.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZ3OPaVd1qY Book of A Thousand Songs]]. As its name might suggest, it's Runescape's 1000th song. 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.
