Tear Jerker: Ascension
Ascension is filled with sad moments throughout the game, from the lives of the main characters all the way to the Crapsaccharine World that many places in the Ascension-verse are. Chapter 1
- Sky's guilt over not measuring up to her mother, who died trying to protect Sky.
- The flashback into Aida's Dark and Troubled Past that ensues after Aida passes out from touching an incubus is probably the saddest moment in this chapter. Aida's grandmother was killed and Aida was mortally wounded by King Kael. Notably, this is the first time that Aida had felt pain in her life. The fact that blood is spattered onto the screen, along with the Heartbeat Soundtrack and the heavy breathing in the background puts this in the Nightmare Fuel category.
- Sky's father being murdered by the Eagles, especially Sky cradling his head with tears streaming down her face.
- Aida being trapped in the crumbling castle. The rest of the crew mourn her supposed death.
- Little Seena tearfully agreeing to leave her Lith clan, without anyone to take care of her, because she is "bad".
- The fate of the homeless and outlaws. They are forced to join King Kael's Silver Army, then their bodies are lit on fire, then their bodies melt and are used for melding weapons.
- Aida being forced to kill her friend Victor. Half of the third chapter's plot revolved around rescuing him from the Silver Order. It takes a tremendous emotional toll on Aida, and she spends a good deal of the third chapter blaming herself for it.
- The scene at which Aida sends a message to Victor, who is dead now. Either mood you choose to take while sending this message is incredibly sad.
