* The revelation that [[spoiler:Linebeck accidentally saved Jolene from a seas monster and traveled with her before he made off with some of her loot. He was ''so close'' to developing a real friendship and perhaps more, but...old habits die hard.]]
-->'''Ciela''': [[DisappointedInYou Oh, Linebeck...you really are dense, aren't you?]]
* The final battle. It looks like Link and Tetra are about to get all of their life-force sucked out for good, but suddenly, Linebeck, of all people, starts to fight the monster off. This must be the hugest character development in a Zelda game EVER! (Not even Midna managed to change her ways ''that'' much). After all you've gone through alongside this JerkWithAHeartOfGold, he's finally proven that he's more than just a selfish idiot...and suddenly, Bellum comes up, possesses him and transforms him into a monster himself. Your only choice is to fight him, right after he got his SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome. Made worse by the fact that he weakly calls out to Link, just before the transformation is done.
** It's even more tear-inducing in the (little known) manga, where he [[spoiler:almost ''commits suicide'']] to stop Bellum, and it takes a time sphere to stop him. As he [[spoiler:holds the sword to his neck, he tells Link that he really ''did'' like travelling with him, and [[TearJerker tells Link to grow up to be a better adult than he ever was.]]]]
* When Link finds Tetra [[spoiler:turned to stone]], his expression is heartbreaking.
* Hell, in this game just ''dying'' results in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EntytViqzK4 the single most heart-wrenching six notes in the series.]]
