* This troper was close to tears during the "Bleeding Out" mission, where the Boss carts Johnny Gat, who'd been impaled by Jyunichi, to the hospital. The entire way there, you can hear Gat have a near-death dream where he's attempting to rescue Aisha, who had been killed mere minutes before. Even though Gat's a {{Badass}}, it was depressing listening to him believing he could still rescue the girl he loved.

** What really got this troper was the fact that the Boss, who never missed a moment to talk in the game, never said a word throughout the entire cutscene, and especially when he/she sat by [[spoiler: Carlos's lifeless body]], grieving for a fallen comrade. Anyone who says that the Boss was an uncaring psycho in the second game apparently never played this mission.
* Jessica calling up The Mix to hear 'Sister Christian'. Its "Her and Maero's song". For this troper the revenge was just but...Not as satisfying after hearing this.
