** If there was been any consolation, Bayonetta's trailer implied that we'd get more Palutena's Guidance conversations, seeing as they spend time talking about Bayonetta's powers.
*** But no, Bayonetta & Corrin out and they don't get their own such conversations.

* Ocarina of Time players will recognize the sound Young Link makes when he's put to sleep by Jigglypuff or other means. It's the sound he makes when he's suffering from a nightmarish premonition of being attacked by Ganondorf. Every time Young Link goes to sleep in Melee, ''[[TheWoobie he has nightmares]]''.

* The [[NostalgiaLevel Mushroomy]] [[Videogame/SuperMarioBros1 Kingdom]] stage is a little sad, considering the opening stage that many gamers know and love has since turned into a barren wasteland.

* On the Magicant stage, one of the Flying Men from ''VideoGame/MOTHER1'' and ''{{VideoGame/EarthBound}}'' shows up on the top right corner. If you approach him, he'll come assist you until he falls off the stage somehow. However, after he passes, a grave marker will note his defeat (implying that he ''[[HeroicSacrifice died for you]]''), [[MythologyGag just like in their native game.]] Eventually, another Flying Man will come to that same spot, rinse repeat until you have [[KillEmAll all five Flying Men graves on that corner.]] And what's more- once they're gone, [[DownerEnding they're not coming back.]] ''Ever.'' [[labelnote: *]] Well, at least for that round.[[/labelnote]]

An innocent and children dream, perhaps… but even today as adults, the sound of thunder might just bring back memories of this Legendary bird Pokémon."

* On the other side, though, finding out a beloved character is making his debut [[spoiler:or unexpectedly returning]] can bring tears of joy to your eyes. Especially watching reaction videos on Youtube and seeing people literally ''scream'' in joy. One Lets Player literally did cry after a moment of stunned silence when he found out [[spoiler:Mewtwo]] was going to be in Smash Bros 4.
* Every previously playable Smash Bros character is commemorated in the 3DS version's trophies. There's Mewtwo[[note]]its non-fighter one[[/note]], and Pichu, and the Ice Climbers, and Wolf, and Lucas, and Pokémon Trainer, and Ivysaur, and Squirtle, and… and… where are Young Link, Roy, and Snake? (Dr. Mario also lacked a Trophy in ''Brawl'', but the blow is lessened a lot by him returning in the next installment.)
** This has been alleviated by the confirmation of DLC characters being made available for ''Wii U/3DS'', with Mewtwo confirmed in October 2014 (for release in April 2015), Lucas announced in April 2015 (for release in June 2015), and Roy announced in June 2015. Hope springs eternal.
* Thought that the Smash Bros games don't have canon? On the NTSC version of the Punch-Out stage, [[spoiler:ROB's title is TheLastOfHisKind]]. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Ouch.]]

** Also in the trailer, watching Ness get repeatedly smacked around by the other fighters can be quite sad to watch. Whether he's suffering from homesickness like he does in Earthbound or he misses Lucas is anyone's guess.

* During ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl''. [[spoiler:During the Ancient Minister's HeelFaceTurn. It involves him [[IncendiaryExponent being set on fire]] by his MechaMooks while a somber version of the main theme plays in the background.]]
** Gets even worse when you think about it: HIS OWN KIND HAS TURNED ON HIM.
** Though the following CrowningMomentOfAwesome makes up for it.
** It'll probably fly over your head the first time, but during the cutscene after [[spoiler:you battle various enemies summoned by Ganondorf after the Ancient Minister's HeelFaceTurn, the camera shows that the R.O.B.s eyes are turning blue before they close their eyes for the final time. Also, before the next playable section, while the rest of the characters are running, Donkey Kong has to carry the playable R.O.B., who also has blue eyes at this point. Throughout the game, it's seen that their eyes turn appropriate colors depending on what's happening, such as going red when Ganondorf takes control of them. So when they go blue… they're pretty much crying.]]
** Watching one of the R.O.B.s wave goodbye to the Ancient Minster right before getting blown to smithereens.
*** To put that scene into more detail, [[spoiler:the Ancient Minister is attacked by Mario and Link, with Pit, Yoshi and Kirby not far behind. A group of R.O.Bs come in to help their master and hold the heroes back. As the Minister prepares to leave, he looks down and notices another R.O.B clinging onto him, attempting to drag the Subspace Bomb down to the ground. He succeeds, then he falls with the bomb but his head '''breaks off.''' As two of the remaining R.O.Bs activate it, a third turns to the fleeing Minister, doing the aforementioned wave. The bomb then explodes, showing in full detail the R.O.Bs being pulled in and torn apart.]] [[TheWoobie …Wow]].
** [[CulturalTranslation Oh God,]] [[https://41.media.tumblr.com/90501ceba5aedce6279ea85ab1a1313d/tumblr_nuvlk1dzth1tswdslo1_500.jpg it's canon.]] In Super Smash Brothers 4, there is a Boxing Ring stage for Little Mac, the Punch Out!! Representative. Affectionately, each playable character was given a boxing name. While most are fitting, and sometimes funny, R.O.B.'s is [[LastOfHisKind "The Last of His Kind."]] So the Subspace Emissary not only is [[WordOfGod canon in the Super Smash Bros. franchise,]] but this R.O.B. is the Ancient Minister; the same Ancient Minister that witnessed the Genocide of his entire race, and has been carrying the weight of his own sins as well as knowing that it is all his fault that the R.O.B.s are dead. This is the '''''same R.O.B.''''' that has emotions. And now he lives with the utter trauma of his entire species turning on him and setting him on fire, just before their destruction. That was the moment where his world comes crashing down (Quite literally once the island is destroyed). And to top it all off, after the Subspace Emissary ends, he's all alone until Super Smash Brothers 4. Feel horrible yet? It gets worse. While it is also a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, when R.O.B. blasts down a bunch of enemies, he looks… [[StoicWoobie sad]].

* Everybody trying in vain to stop the Island of the Ancients exploding, and combined with the aforementioned HeelFaceTurn.
* All of the characters you obtained after the Meta Ridley battle travel to Subspace where they meet TheManBehindTheMan. [[spoiler:Tabuu unleashes an attack that instantly turns everyone into trophies. The scene plays in slow motion as each character are floating from the attack, with shock and fear in their eyes, and are turned back into trophies one by one. You then see all the characters in trophy form lying on the ground as Tabuu begins to absorb the Smash Bros world. After that, you see Luigi, Ness, and King Dedede who are also trophies and it seems all is lost until Dedede's badges revive Luigi and Ness. Ness then revives King Dedede and he glomps him and Luigi as thanks before they go and rescue everyone]]. OK, so death doesn't totally exist in the Smash Bros world for the main characters, but this comes close for me to welling up.
** Heck, one moment could give a tear of joy to even the most beleagured, fed-up [[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] fan: ''[[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Sonic saves everybody.]] ]]''
* The Ancient Minister has a horrible story, really. [[spoiler:His best friend forces him to use his people (the R.O.B.s) to drag the world into Subspace, sacrificing many of them in the process. When the heroes and the bombs have destroyed most of the R.O.B.s, Ganondorf orders the remaining ones to blow up the Island of Ancients. When the Minister tries to stop them, Ganondorf provokes them to attack their true master with the press of a button. As the heroes left the island, they brought with them the Ancient Minister, the very last sane R.O.B., and just managed to escape the complete and permanent obliteration of the Island of Ancients, with every last one of the Minister's people and comrades. And, finally, close to the end, the Minister's best friend is mortally wounded when he attempts to attack TheManBehindTheMan.]]
* In the Subspace Emissary, when Lucas is running away from the Porky Statue. The moment he trips and looks at the statue… You can almost ''see'' him thinking: "Crap, not again!"
** The worst scene with Lucas is when Ness gets turned into a trophy.
