Added DiffLines:

* Mahad(o)'s UndyingLoyalty to the Pharaoh. [[HarsherInHindsight It becomes really sad]] watching Yugi's favorite monster get destroyed knowing that he was a real person, and was very close to the Pharaoh in his original life. This is especially true in the duel against Pandora/Arkana. Dark Magician (who is *supposed* to be a mere hologram) gets trapped, and watches helplessly as the Pharaoh is defenseless without him. He later shields the Pharaoh with his own soul, which is what Mahad(o) does in the Shadow RPG.

Added DiffLines:

** Even before that, it gets sad. From Yugi [[spoiler: trying desperately to stop Atem from playing the card to the harsh way Atem speaks to Yugi (prior to this, Atem had ''never'' yelled at Yugi).]]


** [[FromBadToWorse It gets worse]] when [[spoiler: Atem later battles against Yugi's imprisoned soul in a cursed area -with Yugi yelling accusations at him and turning Yami's earlier, heartless tactics against him, proving that yes, [[BewareTheNiceOnes he does, actually, have a mean bone in his body]]. Turns out [[JerkassFacade it was being cruel to be kind]] as only by seeing the depth of his errors and defeating Yugi could Yami finally move on. Then seeing Yami run to him and cradle him in his arms, with Yugi ''still'' smiling, even as he vanishes for a second time, opens the floodgates. ]]
*** These mark the only [[TearsOfRemorse occasions where]] [[https://pm1.narvii.com/6113/064fb1d9bfb8fd92a73194ba5ea313a44fcec378_hq.jpg we see Yami cry]].

** Yugi's father is never home and his mother barely has any presence in the manga or anime. And this is before you consider the afct he's got another being living in his head which keeps getting him nearly (or literally) killed.

Added DiffLines:

* The original timeline is also pretty sad for Priest Seto, when you think about it. Nearly all the priests and Pharaoh Atem died in the battle against Zorc, leaving Seto in charge as the new Pharaoh. Not only does Seto have to rebuild a ruined Egypt, he has to do it without the help of the Millennium Items. Additionally, the three people Seto actually cared about are dead - his mentor and father (Akhenaden), the one person he called his friend (Atem) and his love interest (Kisara). Priest Seto is much like Seto Kaiba in that both believe in being powerful and dominant as a means to self-validation. However, as soon as Seto becomes the most powerful person in the land - the ruler - he's left alone as everyone that mattered to him is gone.


-->'''Kaiba:''' You never duel alone? ''Wake up''! Don't you realize that ''every single one of us'' is alone in this world, Yugi? ''Look at me''! I've never had to ask anyone for help!

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:The last few minutes before that are even worse. Yugi's reveal that he placed Monster Reborn into the Gold Sarcophagus has a double meaning: It's both the end of the duel and to finally put Atem himself to rest. But after Atem is defenseless Yugi is hesitant to strike the final blow, visibly trembling and weeping, because it's finally really hit Yugi what is happening and that it means sending him away forever. And after he does attack, he falls to his knees and breaks down crying completely. While he was fighting with everything he had ''for Atem's freedom'' in the first place, to him it also feels like he's just killed his closest friend.]]


* Basically everyone has terrible or dead parents/family. Seto and Mokuba lost their parents and their relatives took their inheritance then left them in an orphanage until they were found by the abusive Gozaburo. Jonouchi's parents divorced, separating him from his sister, and his alcoholic father either doesn't care if he comes home and abuses him when he does, leading to him becoming a bully. Marik's father was so controlling and set in his ways that he didn't care about his son's feelings, his wife's or Rishid at all. Mai's parents died, leaving her to travel alone and become cynical when she was surrounded by cheats and dishonest people. Yugi's father is never home and his mother barely has any presence in the manga or anime. In Darkside of Dimensions we see Bakura's father was greedy and cared more about artifacts than Bakura himself, and in-series he lives away from his son and constantly travels. Otogi's father was also abusive and pushed him to game and beat Yugi. Priest Seto's father is responsible for almost the entire series by creating the Millennium Items by massacring a village, and in the Shadow RPG he brainwashes his on to put him on the throne. Even Atem, whose father ''did'' love and try to protect him, suffered as a result of his father's failing to deal with the threat of the Millennium Items and his mother presumably died in his childhood.
