Added DiffLines:

* As part of her final tests before entering the Tower of the Guardian April has to face her biggest fear which she herself might not even be aware of. As it turns out, she is [[spoiler:turned into a child and her biggest fear is no other than her creepy, possibly drunken father, obviously ready to abuse April some more]]. The whole scene is not only surprising as April's difficult relation with her [[spoiler:father]] until that point seemed to be just part of her background with little impact on the actual story, but it's also very touching as April manages to [[spoiler:convince her father that she knows he cares deeply about her even thoug he has trouble expressing it, as well as to actually forgive him years of abusing.]]

Added DiffLines:

* There wasn't one particular moment that this troper can remember, but the entire atmosphere of the second half of the game, when April is [[spoiler:risking life and limb in a quest where her reward would be to shut herself off from the entire world for centuries, with no one she'd ever met knowing what had happened to her]] to be phenomenally depressing.
** This troper can remember one: [[spoiler:the last scene, in which the old Guardian shrugs at April and essentially says, "Oops! Our mistake, you can go home now. Thanks anyway." After all the time spent telling April she's important to the fate of the world(s), it's a PlayerPunch to see her dismissed like that.]]

Added DiffLines:

* When April sleeps in the Banda village and at night her EvilTwin who is really just a projection of her worst fears appears and belittles her to the point of despair, a projection of Charlie appears and tells April she is not alone on her journey and is [[ThePowerOfLove loved.]]

* The ending to ''{{Dreamfall}}: TheLongestJourney'' would be a massive tearjerker if it wasn't such a gigantic DownerEnding that the resulting depression makes it nearly impossible to physically cry.
