** First, when Elc has to kill Mariel, his first love interest, right below the playground where they played together as children. Even worse is the HopeSpot where she breaks free from her mind control, only for a bomb wired inside her to detonate and kill her anyway.
** Then there is the fact that Arc finally found his father, after literally YEARS spent looking for him, going into exile while being framed as a terrorist, and he dies 4 minutes after that. Finding his father was the reason he started his quest.
** Then you can add the utterly screwed up backstories of most playable characters, and finally the events before the last boss: the characters have destroyed bit by bit the Romalian War Machine, freed most if not all of their puppet states, and have conquered its capital. Cue the king of Romalia breaking the seal of the Big Bad: it turns out that the key of the final seal was that a human being had to willingly choose to free him. Cue the king snapping because his kingdom is collapsing under his feet and pushing the red button. The Big Bad then proceeds to kill the King of Romalia (no big deal), kills Arc's girlfriend (a big deal), and unleashes the apocalypse over the world. Then you see a scene of the cities explored by the heroes being flooded and burned down, while most of the world's population dies.
** Not only were all the good deeds of Arc, Elc & co for nothing, but you are at the end of the game. No opportunity to fix anything, and if this was not enough, Arc commits a heroic sacrifice after the last battle.

* PlayerPunch: Present in every game in the series, but in ''Arc'' 2 it is taken to a form of art. Between the constant crossing of the MoralEventHorizon and the fact that ''every single playable character'' is a [[TheWoobie Woobie]] (yes, even Choko, ESPECIALLY Choko), it almost seems like the story writers were trying to break a record (and probably succeeded).

* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: Arc 2 has several lighthearted moments that stand in contrast to the DarkerAndEdgier storyline, like the party's visit to Morea.
-->'''Guard''': That short kid with the weird face is Arc?
-->'''Shante''': Heh...weird face...that's funny.
-->'''Arc''': I don't find it so.
-->'''Guard''': Well...okay. I'll let you in...IF I can get your autograph.
-->'''Arc''': Autograph...?
-->'''Iga''': I have never signed such a thing.
-->''' [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Shante]]''': That's 'cause no one WANTS yours, Iga.
-->'''Iga''': Oh...

** The Dark One is the hardest boss in the entire game. He's so strong that, unless you have a powered up Choko in your party, you're going to have to level grind a ton if you want to even be able to scratch him. It's not recommended to take him on with a party below level 100. You can also expend 2-3 hours of real time constantly buffing Elc and Gruga over and over before taking a single swing each at him and then running back out of range to repeat the process until he dies.
