Top 10 Most Memorable Moments in The World Ends With You

What a good game Square made. Massive spoilers for "The Game"
The Top Ten
1 Joshua defeats Megumi Kitaniji

Major spoilers, but Joshua = Composer = guy who's trying to wipe out Shibuya and Megumi Kitaniji = Conductor = guy who's saving Shibuya but brainwashing it. Megumi's plan was to use Neku's partners to defeat him, and unknown to Neku he was on a timer himself, and Joshua's whole plan worked and Megumi is erased.

2 Neku plays the Game a second time

While the Game in The World Ends With You sounds confusing, the characters are technically dead and have an entry fee in order to win a game to be brought to life. Only one can however, and after the first week Neku's partner Shiki scores the highest, which allows her to return, but not Neku, who actually opts to play it a second time. The problem is his entry fee is now Shiki, meaning she never returned to life anyways.

3 Neku plays the Game a third time

For the third week, Neku's entry fee is all other Players, meaning he's without a partner. Beat comes in and saves him here.

4 Rhyme gets erased in the first week

One of the harshest scenes in the first week, as Neku and Shiki meet players Beat and Rhyme they develop bonds, but when Beat is exposed, Rhyme pushes him out of the way and is erased instead. This causes Beat loads of distress, causing him to shortly join the Reapers in the second week.

5 Neku finds out the truth about his death

His memory was his entry fee at first, and bits and pieces are uncovered eventually. Originally he thought Joshua had killed him, the memory is then hazy as it seems Sho Minamimoto (the game master of the second week) was the one who was attacking Joshua, with Neku in the middle. The final day however shows it really was Joshua who killed Neku then.

6 Joshua's sacrifice at the end of the second week

In a way this gives Neku a bit of trust in his partner for that week, especially considering that he was playing Neku all along and that Neku never really did trust Joshua throughout the week.

7 Rhyme is erased in the third week

She's unlucky enough to be erased twice, the second time in Noise form, which is what Beat bargained for earlier. But when Beat's the partner of Neku in the third week is when the game master crushes Rhyme's Noise form then.

8 Neku nearly kills Shiki in the second day

A small scene near the beginning where Neku, originally an anti-sociopath, was about to kill Shiki and had it not been for Sanae Hanekoma he would have killed her.

9 The entirety of Shibuya is brainwashed by Red Pins
10 Thieves steal pins in "Another Day" chapter

The Another Day chapter is a bonus chapter of sorts, away from the game's actual plot and filled with hilarity. It all happens because of a minigame, Tin Pin Slammer, that Neku sets off to win, but everyone's pins are stolen by thieves except Neku's, and he gets help from familiar characters to bring them back.
