* After defeating Humbaba by changing into her esper form Terra lands near the orphaned children she's sworn to protect, all of whom run from her and scream about the 'monster' in their midst. Terra recoils and scurries away, horrified to cause the children further distress, until one lone girl breaks away from the group and slowly approaches Terra, seeing through her esper form and calling out to her: "mama"? Cue a dogpile of children hugging her, Terra changing back into a human and accepting that this is the 'love' that she will fight to protect, joining the group in storming Kefka's tower.

** Together with HeartwarmingMoment; after the cutscene, comes back and talk to that insane man. He, always mistaking the heroes as repairmen every time they're visiting, suddenly stops doing that and says everything is fixed. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone He's pretty much drowned in guilt for abandoning his son in the wild]], he becomes obsessed to fix anything and finally finds closure when he knows Gau is alive and (mostly) well.

* The pictured scene. After [[spoiler:Cid's death]], if the player lets it happen, Celes walks to the northern cliffs, remember his words about what others lost in despair did to end their pain. Faced with the very real, even likely, possibility that everyone she knew is dead, and she'll have to live out the rest of her life alone on a deserted island now that [[spoiler:she couldn't save the only other person she had for company]], Celes is DrivenToSuicide and leaps off the cliff, crying on the way down. ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' implies that this version of events is ''canon''!

* [[spoiler:Celes' attempted suicide if Cid dies]] and the cutscene after getting the Phoenix magicite are particularly powerful.

** Not to mention his assault on the imperial camp during the seige of Doma. While a CrowningMomentofAwesome, and suitably [[FoeTossingCharge foe tossing]], this troper is pretty sure he had no plans to survive it. He's [[spoiler: lost his family and failed his king,]] and there's nothing left for him to do but [[LastStand go down swinging]].
