- Everything about Minako's death:
- Rei crying out after finding out, kneeling down and shouting to the sky in tears after focusing her grief into rage to destroy a youma. It's only after that that the others find out from Rei, as it was expected until then that she had survived the surgery.
- The scene where the others read Minako's goodbye letter. Made only sadder by the ost, Sayonara-Sweet Days AKA Minako's own funeral song.
- In the alternate timeline of the final episode Minako is still alive-implying she worked so hard to cause the terminal illness, was so busy working as a Sailor Soldier she postponed the surgery until her body was too weak to take it, or both.
- In the final act, as the Dark Kingdom crumbles apart all around them, Jadeite refuses to leave Queen Beryl's side. Beryl, tired of keeping up illusions, removes the spell she cast on him to compel his loyalty so that he can try to save himself. But Jadeite doesn't leave, his loyalty to her is real and has been all along. As he declares his love for her once more, they reach out to one another before they are both crushed by the rubble of the collapsing palace.
