* EverybodysDeadDave: The first appearance of the Maiden. With assassins chasing him, Pinocchio bangs on the door, and the shutters of an upstairs window fly open revealing a beautiful child, who is clearly ''dead'', saying "In this house there is no one. They are all dead." She's just waiting for the undertaker. Pinocchio is caught and hanged. That was supposed to be ''the end''. It wasn't until his editor requested him to continue the story that Collodi decided the Maiden was a fairy who could save Pinocchio and put him on the right path. This isn't the last time we see her dead, either. The story is so uneven and episodic that when read as a book, it looks like the Fairy has been playing guilt-tripping head games the whole time.

** Although Pinocchio is being a jerk a lot of the time when things go wrong for him, there is at least one instance where his comeuppance seems far from reasonable: [[spoiler: after promising to go to school and work, Pinocchio is informed that the monster that swallowed his father is in the local harbor. The other boys egg him on, telling him to bunk school and come to see it. He refuses, saying he will go after school. When they tell him that the beast will be gone by then, he agrees to miss one day of school to see the creature that *swallowed his father.
** The boys turned out to have tricked him, and of course Pinocchio gets into a fight, is arrested for a murder than he didn't commit, and lands up in another series of horrible misadventures.]] Perhaps if things hadn't gone so badly he would have continued bunking school, though.
