Tear Jerker / Tales of Destiny 2

Go To

  • Nanaly's dream in the Illusion World. Her brother is alive, food is plentiful in her village, and life is generally happy. She has to deny all of it (while her brother cries and screams that he IS real and alive) to return to the real world. Watching her cry on Loni's shoulder afterwards is quite possibly the most heart-wrenching moment in the game.
    • Loni's dream world is pretty sad too. It turns out Stahn was killed after Babatos used him as a hostage to get Stahn and Rutee to drop their weapons. He blames himself for years for Stahn's death and tries to protect Kyle as best as he can because of this, even though had he not gotten caught by Barbatos and used as a hostage, KYLE would have gotten killed instead.
  • Karell's death, and his sister Harold's reaction to it. Made worse by the fact that she knew it was coming, as Barbatos taunted her with it.
    Harold: Nii-san, nii-san!
    Karell: Harold?...Thats I hallucinating? You always calls me Aniki...
    Harold: Don't speak! The wound will get worse!
    Karell: What's wrong Harold? Why are you...crying? Are you...being bullied again? Don't worry...Nii-chan will protect you...
    Harold: I said don't speak!
    Karell: matter what...I'll always
    • Even sadder when you realize that this happens in the past timeline. Cue to the future, Karell's soul got kicked from the Swordian to be replaced by Miktran, the very guy he sacrificed his life to defeat, and then used to manipulate Hugo Gilchrist and caused all the troubles in the first series. You can't help feeling sorry for both the Berseliuses.

  • Judas's last words with Chaltier.
  • Reala begging Kyle to destroy the giant Lens, to which he responds with shouting "REAAAALAAAA!" as he smashes it.
  • Judas failing on unleashing Majin Rengokusatsu. After all those Badass Creed while the subtitle keeps telling him down that he can't fight his own destiny, Judas ends up unable to break away his old 'fate' as the subtitle tells him down one last time that he can't rewrite what's already written, only lamenting in regret, "For me... that's impossible..."
  • In the ending, while Reala comes back thanks to Kyle's strong feelings, Nanaly can be met again, a bit she is only nine years old at the time, and Judas might not be completely gone hinted by his mask, the party would most likely never see Harold again in any shape or form as she was from far into the past and is most likely dead at this point.

How well does it match the trope?
