* Something that made this troper quite sad was the fact that [[spoiler: though the adult timeline was saved, the friends and people you met in the adult timeline were left behind. The Hero of Time left that time and could never come back. You could feel the sadness in the scene as Zelda took Link's ocarina with her hands resting on his. Even worse is the fact that in the end Link had very little to await him in the child timeline. Navi was gone, his reputation in the forest was ruined as he was wrongfully blamed for the death of the Great Deku Tree, and he lost all close relations to practically every character. Selfless hero indeed.]]

* Saria's goodbye to Link as you leave Kokiri Forest.

* Saria's goodbye to Link as you leave Kokiri Forest. She knew this day would come, and gives you an ocarina to remember her by[[note]]which you end up replacing with the Ocarina of Time[[/note]], but she gives you a longing look as you leave, expressing that she still finds it hard to accept. Link seemingly hesitates when the time comes for him to leave, but then hurries along, as if it took him a moment to summon the courage, but now, he wants to get it over with.
** There's also the boy who stands guard at the exit to the forest, begging you not to leave lest you end up dying- when you come back, he assumes you never actually left. For all Link never seemed to completely fit in with the Kokiri [[spoiler:in part because he actually isn't one]], it seems as though his departure's hard on all of them.

* 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.]]]]
