* Siegfried's story in general. He killed his own father and his mind broke to the point where he had to convince himself someone else did it just to stay sane. Despite being billed as TheHero and even being named after one, he takes a very tragic and hard fall to darkness. He grabs hold of Soul Edge, only for it to mutate his body and shatter what little sanity he had left, transforming him into Nightmare. Once he's freed from the sword's control, Siegfried is left wracked with guilt over the thousands of innocent people he murdered. Even then, however, his freedom is short-lived, as he still kept Soul Edge around him so that no one could find it and that he could dispose of it later, but he ended up back under the sword's control eventually. He has to be freed again, but by this point he's become a DeathSeeker who thinks his sins can never be redeemed, and he pushes away everyone who tries to help him, out of fear they'll get hurt or end up dead. He gets better in ''V'', but ''VI'' appears to RetCon his somewhat-happy ending away.

* Go ahead, have Patroklos fight against Pyrrha Omega. You'll net some special dialogue, with a more depressed and horrified Patroklos.

'''Patroklos''': [[HeroicBSOD Malfested]]? [[BoomerangBigot My own sister]]!?

* Li Long's ending in the original Soul Edge. He had finally succeeded in defeating both Cervantes and Inferno (known at the time as SoulEdge), but unexpectedly falls down to the ground via his own critical wounds after trying to recite one of his win quotes. His story epilogue then shows him trying to reach the cursed sword itself, but failing in the end and then [[SayMyName shouting out the name of his beloved Chie]] before supposedly [[KilledOffForReal succumbing to his wounds and dying]] [[spoiler: although it would be revealed later on that Li Long had actually barely survived his battle against Cervantes and spent the next few years as a BrokenAce before [[GiveTheDogABone finally]] [[HeartwarmingMoment reuniting with Chie and their son Riki]]]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPT5Wn5TOAQ&noredirect=1 The music that plays from within his story epilogue of both the original Arcade and the PlayStation port's Edge Master mode, titled "The Last Bit of Hope - Dragon's Gasp" does not help one bit when it comes to the tear jerking of the entire scenario]].
