* As much of a BaseBreaker as she is, the moment where Navi [[spoiler: leaves Link at the end of the game]]. She and Link have been through so much together, and it's [[spoiler: her departure that inspires Link to look for her]], setting the events leading up to [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]] in motion.

** Thinking about any of them too hard is a real downer. No matter the outcome of the final battle, Ganondorf's immortality renders it a forgone conclusion. If Link falls, Ganondorf wins the Triforce and goes on to wreak utter havoc for several more years. If he wins, he gets returned to his youth... except that in the "adult" timeline he leaves behind, [[spoiler:Ganondorf returns and Hyrule is ultimately wiped off the map in an act of divine intervention.]] And in the child timeline -- despite giving them fair warning of the danger -- [[spoiler:the sages still manage to botch Ganondorf's execution, leading to ''two realms'' being placed in danger.]] And then there's ''Majora's Mask''. Oh God, ''Majora's Mask''. It's like a goddamn Greek tragedy.

* Shortly before you face Meg, the final Poe Sister in the Forest Temple, she appears to be crying, mourning the loss of her sisters. Even though they were the ones who tried to kill Link first, and you had to defeat them to obviously avoid dying, it's still sad to see that things had to come to this.

* [[This]]. It's just its own comic in the Fanboys archive, so you're flipping through jokes about consoles and then WHAM.



* A PlayerPunch[=/=]TearJerker, but in the Forest Temple, before you kill the last Poe, pause and look at what she's doing in the middle of the lit torches. That weird sound she is making is not laughter, but crying because [[WhatTheHellHero you killed all her sisters.]]

!!The game



** The manga adds another layer of anguish to this story: [[spoiler:Link's father was a soldier slain in battle during the previous warring era, and his mother was mortally wounded trying to escape the war, but suffered on for a long time trying to find sanctuary for her baby boy.]]

* The manga puts Volvagia in a different light. Instead of being an evil dragon revived by Ganondorf, it was a [[spoiler:long-lost pet of Link who was possessed by Ganondorf. Despite Link's unwillingness to fight Volvagia and his attempts to [[IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight talk it back to normal]], he is forced to kill it to keep it from destroying Goron City. Only when Link has fatally sliced off its head does Volvagia finally remember him, letting out one last "Li...nk..." before disintegrating away]].
** [[spoiler:This later comes back to haunt Link when the Desert of Illusions makes the disembodied head of Volvagia appear saying "It hurts, Link"]].



* [[spoiler:Rauru]] is not present at the ending of the game when [[spoiler:the other five awakened Sages travel to Death Mountain to gaze down at Hyrule for one last time before returning to the Sacred Realm]]. Once again, the manga explains this. [[spoiler:In truth, Rauru is no longer among the living, but a spirit.]] Hyrule Historia takes this one step further and reveals [[spoiler:Rauru is in fact Kaepora Gaebora in the form of a spirit guardian animal, which means [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Rauru has been watching over Link from the moment he began his journey outside of the Kokiri Forest.]]]]

** Imagine what Zelda must have felt when she saw Link die in front of her eyes. Not only as a hero she entrusted, but as a friend she knew since childhood.

** In that same scene, Link learns that he's actually [[spoiler: an orphaned Hylian whose mother brought him to the Deku Tree when he was an infant.]] Imagine if you will, you go to the grave of the man you one saw as your father, then his son comes to you and says, [[spoiler: "I'll now tell you your origins!! You're really of another race entirely, your parents are dead, and you have to go save the world from a great evil!"]] Link may look stoic, but internally, it must be a hurricane of emotions. IronWoobie indeed.

** If you visit Lon Lon Ranch at night, you can find Malon in the barn singing Epona's song. She says that the only time it's safe to sing is at night, and if she tried to leave Ingo would hurt the horses.

* Every single one of the conversation with the newly awakened sages. It's utterly heart-wrenching, seeing these people, accepting their new roles, but with the remorse of the cost that it has for them.

** And it's a '''disgraceful''' failure, as well. In the backstory of Link to the Past, the Hero of Time obviously became nothing more than a statistic, mentioning only that "many of the Knights of Hyrule were lost..."

* Zora's Domain. Each other area reclaims pretty much all of its former glory, but not there. You beat the Water Temple and you're told Zora's Domain will recover... eventually. So the Gorons are saved, the Gerudo have had their evil leader tossed out, the Kokiri have the Deku Tree's protection back and Kakariko is now sans an eldritch horror, but Zora's Domain will remain a frozen wasteland for some time... that just seems rather sad, you know?

* During the ending credits, we're treated to a scene of just about every character seen in the game partying at Lon Lon ranch. Everyone seems to be having fun, except for Mido and the Zora King who are sitting by the front gate looking sad. And then you remembered that both of them has [[spoiler:had someone precious to them become a sage and leave them forever. Mido's longtime crush is gone for good, in spite of him trying to convince her not to, and the king lost his daughter and only child.]] Then they both look up to the sky, and which Sage lights appear in the sky first? [[spoiler: Saria and Ruto.]]
** Even sadder when you consider that due to circumstances, [[spoiler: Link cannot attend the party due to returning to his normal timeline]].
