* This troper found himself horrified right after the first battle against the ''cascarudos'' (beetles), at the rondabout, when Salvo, Favalli and the rest of the militaries move along. The author then proceedes to name some distinctive buildings and locations when the characters passes by them. One of them is the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navy_Petty-Officers_School_of_Mechanics Escuela Mecánica de la Armada]], which was, from 1957 (when the story was written) to 1983, one of the most important military buildings of Argentina, so to speak. Exactly thirty years later, the author [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oesterheld Héctor Germán Oesterheld]] was carried there during the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proceso_de_Reorganizaci%C3%B3n_Nacional last Argentinian dictatorship]] (then, and now euphemistically, called "National Reorganization Process"), which is infamous for the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desaparecidos#Argentina dissapearence of people by arresting them illegaly]], [[BodyHorror extreme physical and phsychological torture]] and illegal executions. Extra points if you know about the tortures enforced there and in every other illegal detention center; [[FateWorseThanDeath drowning, raping, fusillade simulations, burial in mass graves, electric shockes in genitals while tied up to a table, birth and appropiation of babies born while their mothers were in captivity (which didn't earned them any special treatment)]]. The very next year, his four daughters, [[ParanoiaFuel which were probably as young as you reading this]], were also illegally arrested, sistematically tortured and dissapeared like his father, one of them while being pregnant and other being mother of a baby. The grandson born in captivity was rescued by Elsa Sánches, Oesterheld's widow, while the other was raised by the father's grandparents.
* From ElEternauta: The whole premise of the travelling through time and space seems really cool from the very beginning... If you don't think too hard on it. [[spoiler: Due to [[DoNotTauntCthulhu messing with Eldritch Technologies]], Juan Salvo becomes the Eternaut, the "Traveller of Eternity", travelling through time and space over and over. This mean that he was able to escape the likely complete extinction/enslavement of the human race, but he [[PowerIncontinence can't control]] this power.]] On the other hand, the same thing happened to [[spoiler: Elena and Martita, his beloved wife and daughter]], both also drifting through the many continuums of timespace together... [[NightmareFuel hopefully]]. So Salvo faces the tragic condition of [[spoiler: being LastOfHisKind, knowing positively that [[ThereIsAnother his family]] is somewhere out there, jumping through time and space, facing the endless dangers and horrors of the universe on their own, with a infinitesimal chance of ever finding them]]. Needless to say, he holds onto the hope that he will find both, asking for them to every single creature he finds.[[spoiler: And he finally does]]... In a way... [[AlternateUniverse or does he?]]. [[MindScrew Don't ask me.]]
