** Related to the above event, is a massive one for [[spoiler:Egil]]. [[spoiler: Despite all that he's done, and despite Zanza egging Shulk on to finish him, Shulk refuses, and lowers his blade. Egil realizes that Shulk truly could be a person to bring peace to the two titans. Then Dickson shoots Shulk, and Zanza emerges. Egil has been alive for thousands of years, long enough to witness firsthand the destruction Zanza brought to his people last time. For all his extreme measures, all that he did, even killing off the people of Bionis because they were "food" to Zanza, was for entirely correct reasons. And now his whole plan has failed, thanks to the actions of good people being manipulated by his arch-nemesis.]] And to top it all off? [[spoiler: Lady Meyneth, the goddess of the Machina and soul of the Mechonis itself, sacrifices herself as well to protect Shulk's party from Zanza. Her final wish? For the peoples of this world to create a new world, with no need for gods. Egil entrusts this wish to Shulk, knowing that, somehow, he can be brought back. His final act, to defend the party's ship from the Zanza-controlled Bionis with the crumbling Mechonis, is one of the greatest acts of RedemptionEqualsDeath ever. "They will judge me not in life, but death!" indeed.]]

** The worst part about it was that Shulk KNEW someone was going to die, [[spoiler: but didn't know who courtesy of the first onscreen Monado premonition, and then the Monado's ability to let the user see the future makes him watch Fiora's death TWICE. His reaction is justified.]]

* [[spoiler: Dickson's death. Yeah, the guy was a JerkAss who literally shot Shulk InTheBack, but he was also Dunban's war buddy and one of Shulk's father figures, and there were a few moments where it looked like he might have genuinely had a soft spot for the Colony 9 kids. When Fiora tells Shulk that Dickson's wounds are too severe to survive, the camera stops for a moment on Shulk's face, as if he's shedding a tear as the party heads onward to confront Zanza.]]

Not to mention on Dunban's side, it also would count that due to both of Dickson and Mumkhar's deaths, he basically lost both of his war buddies.]]

* Good news: [[spoiler:Fiora's back in your party as the final member! Bad news after [[WhamEpisode Mechonis Core]]: Meyneth's death deprives her of the chest component - Meyneth's Monado - that kept her functioning. Now that she's running on small reserve energy, she doesn't have much longer before she's just going to stop working. ''And she knows it.'' It's admirable to know that she makes the decision to keep on fighting while knowing this, but that doesn't make her impending fate any less heartbreaking.]]

** The quest "A Memento from Daddy" is heartbreaking [[spoiler:, since it involves the two mischievous, but now orphaned High Entia children. The sister Cian doesn't understand what happened to her dad and misses him dearly, so her brother Atael asks you to find something their father buried back in Alcomoth to cheer her up. It turns out to be a family photo, and right afterward you have to fight their father as a Telethia. What makes this even sadder is that before, you could do two quests for the dad, helping him search for his kids that he very much loved.]]

However, there's a hidden objective once you have to fight their pick up the memento: the party encounters ''"Telethia Vol'Aran", Atael and Cian's father as a Telethia. What makes this even sadder Telethia'', who they must kill to properly fulfill the quest. A tragic way to think of it is that before, you could do two quests for since the dad, helping him search for his kids that he very party would know how much loved.Vol'Aren loved his children (the affinity even says as such), they decided to secretly put these children's father to rest for them.]]

*Seeing the [[spoiler: once tall Mechonis in ruins after Zanza mercilessly destroys it. The sky never looks the same. On top of that, Egil fought to his last breath fighting Zanza and saving the party. He also indirectly gives you the opening needed to defeat Zanza. Despite all Egil did, you can't help shed tears for the guy as he goes down with the ship]].
