* A more subtle one: when meeting Raleigh for the first time, Newt says that "only his mother calls him 'Doctor.'" This becomes much sadder after finding out that Newt was an illegitimate child from an affair his dad had with a married woman, and was raised solely by his father's side of the family; his mom probably calls him Doctor because they don't have a close relationship, supposing they have one at all.

* A brief moment in the prologue is when you see the outline of an entire ''group'' of people holding hands on top of a ledge above the wreckage of a city. Combined with Raleigh's monologue that there was nothing humanity could do to stop the Kaiju, [[DrivenToSuicide it's heavily implied they're all going to jump]] [[TogetherInDeath together.]]

* When Pentecost reveals he'll be [[spoiler: Chuck's copilot, he and Mako have a quick heart to heart about her protecting him. The look on her face is heartbreaking, since she already lost one father, and she's about to lose another.]]

** Everyone knows how much love a dog has for their owner. Now imagine how much sadness that Max would feel seeing Chuck go away and not understanding why when he doesn't come back.

** Look at it from the perspective of the old man and his grandson who saved Raleigh. They just watched a Jaeger, the pinnacle of human engineering, a walking god-like warrior just stumble and fall to pieces before them, and out of the Jaeger [[spoiler: walks a single wounded, delirious pilot, when everyone knows that pilots are paired]]. When the old man falls to his knees beside Raleigh, you can see how horrified and crushed he is just by the implications of Gypsy Danger falling dead in front of him. The Jaegers ''aren't invincible''.

** Perhaps even worse on Stacker's end. He's essentially taking his closest friend's son to an [[spoiler: inevitable death]]. Considering how close and long Stacker and Herc have worked together, it's very likely that Stacker has known Chuck since he was a little boy, or at least a young teenager. Just imagine taking someone who you've mentored since they still had ''baby teeth'' into such a terrible situation.
