- The endings of all three games are tragedies on planetary levels and Bittersweet Endings at best.
- RayForce: Earth is so corrupted by Con-Human that the only option left to save humanity is to blow up the entire planet; this is the objective over the course of the game. Which succeeds. The pilot dies on the way out.
- RayStorm: In order to stop the Secilian rebellion, the R-GRAY squad destroys the entirety of the colony of Secilia, and it is implied that all seven billion inhabitants die; who knows how many of those seven billion are innocent civilians who want nothing to do with the entire conflict? 13-Ship Mode is even worse, as The Stinger reveals that Earth was wiped out too!
- RayCrisis: The fact that this is a prequel to RayForce should clue you in on how successful the efforts to stop Con-Human were (which is to say: not at all).
