* Chapters 230 to 247: [[spoiler: Elizabeth, with all her memories back, is constantly worrying about Meliodas. Even when he was becoming a danger to everyone around him, she picks him up in her arms and takes him outside, exclaiming that nothing is wrong with him. The saddest part is that she's putting his life before her own, despite knowing that when she dies he will go through the same suffering he has endured for three millennia. It's no wonder why Meliodas is currently obsessed with breaking the curse.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Made even worse in recent chapters; [[spoiler: They both survived the attack and decided to live together in peace with the human girl who saved them, without getting involved in the holy war. Unfortunately, Estarossa kills them.]]

* Chapter 252 has Elizabeth telling her father about her [[spoiler: curse.]] The old king is moved to tears, unable to accept it. Elizabeth's next words while embracing him just makes it hurt all the more.

Added DiffLines:

* Despite being TheHeavy that caused so much damage, [[spoiler: Fraudrin's death is this, being unable to go through with self-destructing when Giamore begs him. He stops his attack and muses he understands why Melodias betrayed them now, and he is the one in a whimsical dream. He then asks Meliodas to kill him, which he goes with such sadism that everyone around them is horrified, and even Merlin admits he didn't deserve to go out like that.]]

Added DiffLines:

* chapter 271 [[spoiler: Meliodas recounting his biggest failure as an elder brother. His younger brother who looked up to him the same way that Estarossa looked up to meliodas. Was ordered by his father to execute the vampire clan for the act of rebellion, his lover: Gelda, included. Seeing what had been presented as naught but powerful merciless villain break down in tear, reminiscent to the first time Meliodas lost Elizabeth is truly heartbreaking. [[NotQuiteDead Though there is a light at the end of the tunnel]].]]
** Made worse for the very reasoning of why Zeldris fought so hard and became as cold as he is. [[spoiler: He did so in order to protect Gelda in the first place. Only to then in a cruel twist of fate have to kill her. No wonder Zeldris is so unpleasant.]]


* Chapter 241: [[spoiler: Dolor and Gloxinia, kings of old, hold the line against the immensely monstrous and powerful Chandler, Meliodas's old master. Knowing it'll be their deaths, they selflessly force the Sins to retreat and engage Chandler in a last battle, passing true rulership of the giants and fairies to Diane and King. The two are seen torn apart, but smiling in death after, remembering their time with Meliodas and Diane and happy they could do one last thing right after losing their way so long ago.]]

** Later on we learn that [[spoiler:Gilthunder was put under a {{Geas}} to serve the Holy Knights and Hendrickson; his love Princess Margaret was also put under the same {{Geas}} because she knew that his uncle murdered Gilthunder's father. His saying "I am stronger than the Seven Deadly Sins" was a TrustPassword that Meliodas taught him to say as a distress signal. Meliodas didn't tell Elizabeth because there was no way to warn her without compromising Gil's position.]]

! Anime
* The first episode has a knight marching into the armor, in clunky heavy armor. The knight then collapses. Meliodas removes the knight's helmet to reveal an unconscious woman. This is Princess Elizabeth, who fled her kingdom to seek help in saving her father from the Holy Knights. The armor made her pass out because of the heat outside. This is Elizabeth's EstablishingCharacterMoment as a PluckyGirl who is forced to grow up quickly and is out of her league.
* Elizabeth's last meeting with her bedridden father. He can't leave, due to being ill, but he tells her to run for the SecretPassage and get help. She barely makes it out with her life.
* Elizabeth finds out that her childhood friend and sister's bodyguard is working with the Holy Knights and tries to take down the Seven Deadly Sins. EtTuBrute doesn't begin to cover her reaction.
* Princess Veronica's [[spoiler:death]] because of how senseless it was and how it could have been avoided.
** She starts by giving a [[ItMakesSenseInContext naked Elizabeth]] her coat, believes her to be brainwashed by Meliodas, and tries to drag her by the hand back to the kingdom. When Elizabeth naturally protests, Veronica's bodyguard puts her in a magical orb to levitate her back. Veronica doesn't even stop to listen to Elizabeth, who refuses to believe that Meliodas is evil.
** Meliodas even gets up after he got knocked unconscious, proclaiming that he must protect Elizabeth. Veronica in response traps him in Amber that Hendrickson gave him. After this, Elizabeth runs away with the Amber and proclaims that she hates her sister.
** Veronica then imprisons Guila and Jericho who try to attack her sister. They then reveal they've set landmines near where Elizabeth is running, which triggers Veronica's BigSisterInstinct. [[spoiler:Veronica ends up taking the blast, and it appears that she dies in Elizabeth's lap after the latter apologizes for saying she hates her. Elizabeth doesn't even bother to move when Guila and Jericho approach and demand that she come quietly, sobbing over Veronica and Meliodas.]]
* Princess Margaret's situation: [[spoiler:locked in a dungeon, used to force Gilthunder to work for Hendrickson, and only getting information on Elizabeth and the Seven Deadly Sins from her bodyguard lover.

* Chapters 223-224: An absolutely massive moment of sadness comes into light. [[spoiler:The truth about Meliodas and Elizabeth is revealed. They were both cursed by their respective parents and rulers of their races for betraying each other's side and falling in love. Meliodas has the curse of Eternal Life, which halted his aging and makes him revive when he suffers fatal wounds, while Elizabeth has the curse of Perpetual Reincarnation, which causes her to die and reincarnate with no memories of her former self, but keep her original name and face and the Goddess symbol in her right eye. Then, Elizabeth will inevitably fall in love with Meliodas and eventually regain her lost memories, causing the Goddess symbol to appear in her left eye. Once this happens, she will die unquestionably after three days pass, because something ''will'' happen to take her life, if she doesn't lose it before then. And Meliodas and Elizabeth are doomed to repeat these events for eternity as long as they are under the effects of these two curses. So far, Meliodas has born witness to '''''106''''' dead Elizabeths, including the original (#1), a barbarian (#2), and Liz (#106) and the current one is #107. And she's just started to regain her lost memories...]]
