** Minato's breakdown as Akira is dying in his arms in her Normal Ending pretty much sum up what he has to go through in every route's Normal End:

** Minato's breakdown as a result of having to ''kill'' all of Yuno, Fuuka, Kanon, and Satsuki. Even in the True End, where Satsuki survives and is cured, he falls into a HeroicRRoD until Satsuki can snap him out of it.

Added DiffLines:

** Minato being completely and utterly ''broken'' in a very cruel subversion of FriendOrIdolDecision should he decide to save Kanon in the final decision on that route. Having made his choice, he destroys the Dream Unit, allows Kanon to kill him, sees a vision of the future where the X-Virus covers the earth with infected, and is ''happy'' because it is now "Kanon's world" in his final moments.


** The first kind stranger that Minato meets while out searching for food ending up dead from a Neoman attack mere moments later. Even worse is that he was retrieving supplies for his wife.

** The first kind stranger that Minato meets while out searching for food ending up dead from a Neoman attack mere moments later. Even worse is that he was retrieving supplies for his wife. FridgeHorror sets in upon thinking about all of the other people who sought out food and supplies, only to never return home.

Added DiffLines:

** Minato having to give the route's heroine a MercyKill is of course the worst for him in this route as he's not only killing the woman he fell in love with, but also the last remaining member of his family.


Added DiffLines:

** Satsuki's ending theme, "The Reality of 96.8 Degrees," is far more melancholic than the others and definitely captures the spirit of how even her True Ending is a BittersweetEnding, especially the part where her tears fall onto a picture of her and Minato.

Added DiffLines:

** Kanon breaking down further in the next scene when she repeatedly tries slitting her wrists and realizing ICannotSelfTerminate.

Added DiffLines:

* Kanon's Route:
** Minato going temporarily insane and lashing out at Kanon after he's forced to kill Fuuka. The poor girl looks utterly terrified and ends up running away, partially because she knows he's not entirely wrong.
* Fuuka's Route:
** The circle of friends drifting and falling apart due to the paranoia they begin experiencing as the events progress.

Added DiffLines:

--->'''Minato:''' I lost my friend! I lost my best friend since childhood! Now I'm going to lose the woman I love! Why do I have to keep watching the people I care about the most die?!


Added DiffLines:

** As in other Normal Endings, Minato is unable to save Yuno after she transforms. Her situation especially hits hard as the narrative strongly implies she was able to maintain her humanity the most after transforming, so she was fully aware of Minato having to MercyKill her.

Added DiffLines:

* Akira's Route:
** The first kind stranger that Minato meets while out searching for food ending up dead from a Neoman attack mere moments later. Even worse is that he was retrieving supplies for his wife.

Added DiffLines:

'''''MOMENTS PAGES ARE SPOILERS OFF!'''''

* While the first events of the game are upbeat, there's still Minato's flashback to his and Fuuka's reactions of learning about the deaths of their parents.
* The second opening, showcasing the MoodWhiplash between how everything was perfectly normal one day, only for things to go to hell with the outbreak of the pandemic.
* Yuno's Route:
** Yuno's first night after finding out she's infected is absolute hell: All of her supposed-fans suddenly want her dead, her father wants to turn her over to Rotom to protect his own career more than for her sake, she spends most of the night out in the cold trying to contact Minato ''twenty-eight'' times before Satsuki is able to shelter her at the Academy.
* Satsuki's Route:
** Satsuki running away from home, believing she's no longer welcome there after revealing she's infected. She then tries to find shelter with Minato's family, only for a misunderstanding on his part (combined with the shock of learning Fuuka was also infected) to nearly drive her over the DespairEventHorizon.
** Satsuki realizing her adoptive parents have always loved her while they're in the middle of a HeroicSacrifice.
--->'''Satsuki's Dad:''' We'll act as a decoy! Run while we draw their attention!\\
'''Satsuki:''' Why?! Why are you doing this for me?!\\
'''Satsuki's Mom:''' Because, you're our baby!
** Minato's breakdown as a result of having to ''kill'' all of Yuno, Fuuka, Kanon, and Satsuki. Even in the True End, where Satsuki survives and is cured, he falls into a HeroicRRoD until Satsuki can snap him out of it.
* Natsume's Route:
** The triple whammy that comprises TheReveal: Natsume is DeadAllAlong, she was bullied by the gymnastics team other than Yuno over a petty grudge because people were looking at her instead of them, and the bullying snowballed to the point where Natsume was using the sewers to secretly make her way home to get away from the bullies and eventually DrivenToSuicide. Give this girl a hug!
