Chapter 2: At the end when you find that everyone in your home castle has vanished. No background music plays while you're inside the castle. Very creepy.
Chapter 3: At the end where you leave your loving wife and your young son (and your wife encourages it, lovingly booting you out to pursue your dreams).
Chapter 4: Near the end when you're forced to leave your dead father's friend, Orin, to die at the hands of the enemy and you have to flee from the land.
Chapter 5: At the beginning where the Hero is introduced, monsters find and attack your village, looking for looking to kill you while you're still young and inexperienced. The only parents you knew, Celia (your childhood female friend / possible love interest?), and the other villagers do everything they can to protect you. You are escorted to the cellar and are put in a hidden room within the cellar. You hear fighting going on which includes magic attacks and some gut wrenching "critical hit" blows. Celia comes in and calls you by name and says "I've enjoyed growing up with you. Don't worry, I won't let them take your life." She then casts Transform and becomes an exact replica of you. She then tells you goodbye and goes back out. She takes a blow, then gets hit with a magic attack, another blow, then a critical hit. Then everything goes quiet and the battle music stops. Then you hear the monsters' voices from the outside saying "Necrosaro, we've destroyed the Hero". Necrosaro says "Well done! Everyone, return to our base!" and they all leave. You come out of the hidden room and exit the cellar, only to find that everyone is gone and your village is destroyed. That was a tough pill to swallow, but you push on because the world needs you to defeat Necrosaro. You begin your quest to become stronger and you find the characters from previous chapters, little by little, as you explore the outside world, and they join your party. They become like a 2nd family to you. You spend much time enduring together, battling monsters, gaining levels, solving puzzles, exploring new lands, finding treasures, defeating tough bosses. You witnessing the tragic aftermath of the poisonous gas released from the mines on the people of Aktemto, and many more problems and tragedies along the way. You finally face off against Necrosaro, the final boss of the game. This will be the longest and toughest fight in the game. After fighting his various scary forms, you finally defeat him, thus saving the world. You then report back to the Dragon Queen (who had directed you to Necrosaro's location in the first place), and after that... it's time to take everyone back to their homes. Your adventure is now over and everyone enters the balloon. The ending sequence was particularly emotional to me, because as you're dropping everyone else off to their hometowns or homelands, you think more and more about your own village and remember how it was destroyed and the villagers, you're parents, Celia... all slaughtered. It really sinks in when you're the last one in the balloon, now heading back to your village, wanting to see Celia again even though you know she won't be there. You finally arrive and you enter your destroyed village. You walk up and into to the bed of roses next to where she use to enjoy laying. You're all alone now and you feel like you have no more will to push on... Then Celia appears next to you out of nowhere in that spot where she use to lay. You are surprised but so happy to see her. Then your friends who traveled the world with you enter the village, and you and Celia walk down together to greet them. The message I got from this is that you are not alone. You still have friends that care about you and are there for you... like a family. At that point, I just wanted to give everyone hugs, then pick up my girl and carry her to the nearest church to get married! *joyful tears*.
