* E-Selda Shuun's death originally was just... a passing mention. But here, we get to see on-screen how he delivered his final words to Touya in spite of the latter begging that he should go to the hospital instead, declaring that his best memories was when he was holding Touya as a baby. And when he passed away, Touya was screaming for his father in grief. Not only that, Katia and Melua were also equally crushed on his death, thinking that it's their fault for being helped by E-Selda that he ended up dying. Truly, he was [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth too good for this sinful verse...]]

* Another meta-example: the sudden passing of Creator/YukoMizutani (voice actor for [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen Browning]]) was so abrupt and unexpected that current [=SRW=] series producer Takenobu Terada would take time to offer his condolences on Banpresto's [[http://blog.spalog.jp/?eid=863695 official blog]]; furthermore, Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa (voice actor of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Kyosuke Nanbu]]) also voiced his feelings and thoughts on his [[http://ameblo.jp/toshiyukimorikawa/entry-12162040027.html blog]] to share his experiences working with her. Though they may have provided the voices for the {{Love Interest}}s, you can tell by his words he and Yuko had a great time playing their respective characters. Furthermore, with these news, anytime you hear Excellen's flirty and teasing voice... [[FunnyAneurysmMoment you get reminded that these would be the last time you hear from her.]]

* Meta-example: ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Masou Kishin III - Pride of Justice]]'' [[FranchiseKiller tanked horribly in the market]], developer Winkysoft decided to pull off the GrandFinale of the ''Masou Kishin'' saga with ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Masou Kishin F - Coffin of the End]]''. Cut to a year later and Winkysoft declared bankruptcy, making the latter a literal "final nail" and the company's swan song. The sub-series might not be as beloved as other continuities in the franchise, especially when ''Coffin of the End'' was a slight improvement over ''Pride of Justice'' ([[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot except the story]] and [[DecoyProtagonist other elements]]), but the silver lining is that, according to Creator/HikaruMidorikawa (who voices the series' protagonist), Winkysoft finally wrapped up the decades-long plot at the end; even if they or the higher-ups decided to pull the plug, they're pulling out without regrets.

Furthermore, even if the ''Masou Kishin'' arc ended, it doesn't bar Masaki to re-enter the OG-verse, as seen in ''Moon Dwellers''.

* Surprisingly, even there's a TearJerker in a meta-sense. After ''Pride of Justice'' [[FranchiseKiller kind of tanked]], Winkysoft decided to pull off the finale of the Masou Kishin saga, titled... ''Coffin of the End''. Cut to a year later, and... Winkysoft declared bankruptcy, making it a literal 'final nail' and the company's swan song. The sub-series might not be as beloved, but... damn (made worse in that ''Coffin of the End'' was actually considered an improvement over the last title, but turns out, not as much). The only silver lining is that, according to Creator/HikaruMidorikawa, they can finally wrap the story up in their end with the game, thus even if they pull the plug, they're pulling out without regrets.

* ''Original Generation Gaiden'' gives us a cruel PlayerPunch of attempting to invert the SparedByTheAdaptation. [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]]]], after all her efforts to assert her indomitable will, is unceremoniously shot down by an [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration ODE System-possessed Wilheim von Juergen]], claiming her useless and making every of her development null. Worse, this happens because [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Kyosuke Nanbu]] had dropped his guard. The {{Leitmotif}} ''Meikyuu no Prisoner'' ("Prisoner of the Labyrinth") by JAMProject becomes hard to enjoy when party members attack Juergen with BerserkerTears (especially [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Seolla Schweizer]] and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Latooni Subbota]], since they were part of a new team) to avenge her. Even though Juergen is defeated, [[spoiler:he himself is obliterated by an interrupting [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Duminuss]]]], and the heroes are forced to retreat. Kyosuke mournfully and solemnly declares [[spoiler:Lamia]] a victim of war and killed in action.

** Following the WhamEpisode, a funeral is immediately held for him. He was just that important and awesome that the crews would put off everything else to pay their final respects to him.

** Following the WhamEpisode, a funeral is immediately held for him. He was just that important and awesome that the crews would put off everything else to pay their final respects to him. Elzam even sets his "Ratsel" disguise aside for the duration of the funeral, refusing to dishonor the Captain's memory with a false name.

** Which makes the scene in the ''Inspectors'' anime [[spoiler: where they, together, avenge her death and take Archibald down once and for all]] all the more powerful.
-->'''Elzam:''' You don't need to apologize to Cattleya, [[spoiler: Archibald]]. That's my job.
