It's made clear the babe's protector adores her and loved her late mother, but has to let her go.

* [[spoiler: Bagan rejecting Harmony's offer to reform and stop the conflict all together hits both sides. After an EstablishingCharacterMoment for our BigGood that shows just how loving of life she is to offer forgiveness to anyone who seeks it, Harmony loses on her plea to stop any further death all together. For Bagan however, he actually seems to honestly contemplate the choice for a bit before rejecting.

* The fact [[spoiler:Enjin, Doragon, and Mizu were the guardians of Terra's life and nourished it over the centuries, ultimately fusing into Reijuu for that reason...only for Reijuu to ultimately become a FallenHero and OmnicidalManiac. [[http://www.fimfiction.net/blog/608072/kaiju-profile-enjin#comment/3808506 The creator has even said]] that if Reijuu could see Bagan, [[FutureMeScaresMe he would view his future self and his actions with horror, misery, and despair]] that can harm even a God.]]
* Kaizer Ghidorah ranting about how much he hates Monster X for being a weaker version of him [[spoiler:and for forgetting about Controller 011. X's amnesia forced him to be trapped within their mind for over 200 years, unable to avenge his love.]]
* Did any readers think Aria Blaze would be Kaizer Ghidorah's MoralityPet? Wrong. [[spoiler:Kaizer makes it clear the '''only''' being he cares for is the deceased Controller 011. When they first met, he stopped attacking Aria because he thought she was 011.

Right before Kaizer disappears, he shows him a memory of Praetorian Guard 094 and Controller 011 together.

* The revival scene following the finale fight with Enjin. Monster X is battered and bruised, but pulled Aria out of Enjin's core. He holds her form in his hand and immediately starts panicking when he sees she's not breathing. Upon demorphing it only gets worse when he finds her body is limp and doesn't have a pulse. He repeatedly tries and fails to revive her with increasing desperation. Several reviewers noted this scene was one of the most profound in showing X's CharacterDevelopment, the typically controlled stoic going NotSoStoic and crying over Aria's body through the attempts to jump start her heart [[spoiler: as he tries to save the siren he'd fallen in love with, begging her to wake up. Thank god she did.]]

* The Spirit of Hearth's Warmings Yet To Come shows Xenilla the future. In the vision, he sees that Granny Smith and Chibi Moon's parents have passed away. While he is slightly affected, he shrugs it off, saying everything dies eventually. Having read several variations of this story, he assumes he's about to be shown his own grave, and assures the Spirit that he's NotAfraidToDie. [[spoiler:Instead, he is shown ''Blade Dancer's'' grave. Xenilla then goes nuts, screaming that he will find a way to stop her from ever dying, but the Spirit parrots back his own words about how everything dies eventually. In a fit of rage, Xenilla attacks the Spirit with the Red Spiral Ray, but it does nothing. He is utterly spent and crying, but then the Spirit hugs him and reveals himself to be his father Godzilla Senior, who tells him since it is true everything dies, it is important to make as many good memories as possible.]]

When he finds her, Chibi wordlessly reminds him of his promise, and he realizes Starlight made a liar out of him.]]

* Later when [[spoiler:Grand King Ghidorah arrives and is clearly seeking out Godzilla Junior]], Chibi Moon is adamant about ''not'' leaving her sensei alone to face him. Junior assures that this fight will be no harder than fighting a few Gyaos at Canterlot and assures her he can win and won't be long. [[spoiler:Unfortunately it's all FalseReassurance. He knows full well Grand King Ghidorah is too strong for him to handle alone and is probably going to die. He gives Chibi a mutual bow and tells her to help the others, before dropping the facade of strength while whispering to Rarity to not let Chibi look back at any point in the fight
