** [[spoiler:At least Zelda's sleep wasn't permanent. Fi wasn't so lucky.]]

*** Made more emotionally painful when you realize; He and Zelda have been friends for years and [[spoiler:has been searching for her the entire game, effectively making her Link's LivingEmotionalCrutch throughout his whole journey. Once she's been imprisoned, Link suffers an absolute HeroicBSOD and just completely breaks into tears, as he very well knows that if he fails, he'll never see Zelda again. The only thing that has kept him going through his adventure, the only thing that's mattered to him, has just been taken away from him. Damn.]]

* The entire prequel manga to Skyward Sword, telling the story of the very first Link and how both Skyloft and the legacy of the Hero came to be. [[spoiler: After being wrongly imprisoned for four years by his own country, he still takes up his sword when they free him to save them from the demons. He goes on to fight an unwinnable war in the name of the Goddess Hylia, uses the last of his strength to send Skyloft into the sky with the Master Sword, and bleeds to death all alone on the abandoned surface as he watches his home and all of his friends rise into the skies.]]
-->'''Link''': [[spoiler:My people, I pray...for your happiness. I wish I could go with you... but my body is heavy...]]
* The next few entries cite a scene where [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAVn71rNImI a new version of Zelda's Lullaby]] plays - and it's consequently heartbreaking to hear.

*** If you wanna feel better, activate the Timeshift Stone after you get what you need for him. [[spoiler:The skeleton isn't there anymore,]] indicating you changed the future for the better. You only get to do this twice in the game, and the second time is rendered useless.

** At least with the Mogmas, there's the [[FridgeBrilliance possibility]] that they become the Acro-Bandits (another mole-like creature) in ''Minish Cap''... Except that means that [[UnfortunateImplications their thirst for treasure has turned them into thieves.]] The root of all evil, indeed...
* A likely minor one for Groose. Sure, he was a bit of a jerk to Link at first, but he eventually [[spoiler:[[CharacterDevelopment changed for the better.]]]] He knew [[spoiler:his role wasn't that full of action,]] but he was all right with that. He [[spoiler:[[NonActionGuy didn't do much fighting]]]], but he was important [[spoiler:for Link to do what he needed.]] And yet, in all the games in the series, and all the years they span... it seems nobody remembered Groose's actions. Not only that, it seems he didn't have his own bloodline, like Link and Zelda do. To be able to [[spoiler:play a role in shaping history,]] and not be remembered for it... it's a bit upsetting.

* This whole game was chock-full of tear jerking moments. The first thing that really hit home was Zelda's kidnapping. They actually spent time building her as a character; a sweet, innocent young girl who clearly has a thing for Link. Right when it seems she's about to tell Link how she feels, she gets [[spoiler:[[TraumaCongaLine swept away by a tornado, has to put herself in a giant crystal for thousands of years, taken by a pervert spirit of a sword, and is then fed to an imprisoned demon in a monstrous form]]]].

*** Also, what happened to Lanaryu is known as desertification, and [[TruthInTelevision actually happens in real life]], often due to destructive environmental practices in modern times. And lakes drying up into deserts? Also happens in the real world.
