** Hiro becomes extremely tired of saving the world (seeing people die, trying to always escape death while helping his friend do the same) and [[IJustWantToBeNormal just wants to be normal]]. His destiny causes him to crack and he's within inches from [[DrivenToSuicide committing suicide]].
** The other teammates feel useless and quit.
** As a result of Hiro's fight against the darkness, his fight inexorably exposes him to the inherent suffering, death, and tragedy in the world. As a result, it takes its toll on Hiro's psyche, altering his personality (though his core morality is unaffected). These changes turn him into a HurtingHero, ShellShockedVeteran, GoodIsNotNice shadow of his original self. Hiro's love for the world makes him believe that he has to grow apart from it and push people away from him. While he carries a seeming mask of fearlessness, Hiro is always scared because he knows that any misstep could make the next battle his last.
