* TearJerker:
-->"Look after Ace, Kid. He needs you more than ever."
** It's [[spoiler:Sparx's death scene]], in case you're wondering. Also a bit of a [[TheWoobie woobie]] moment for Mark because he looked so damned ''upset'' about it (thus supporting a fact that had previously been doubted: Tom Wansey can actually freaking ''act''.)
*** ...Never mind the fact that Ace damn near [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome blew Googler's head off]] afterward.
** Lady Illusion offers to take away the Human Emotions that Ace has been struggling with the entire season after TakingTheBullet for him in the final episode, calling it "her last gift to him". He tells her not to. He wants to keep them. As much as they have screwed him up and over in the last half a dozen episodes or so, they ''are'' the real gift.

** It's [[spoiler:Sparx's
Sparx's death scene]], in case you're wondering. Also "Unidentified Flying Superhero", blasted by her own sword and returns to the game. She get better.
* Lady Illusion's HeroicSacrifice in the finale to save Ace from Lord Fear. The final exchange between the lovers is
a bit of a [[TheWoobie woobie]] moment tearjerker.
-->'''Lady Illusion:''' Oh, Ace. Those human emotions, they made you weak. Before I go, I have the power to take them away. My last gift to you.
-->'''Ace Lightning:''' No. Emotions are what I'm feeling
for Mark because he looked so damned ''upset'' about it (thus supporting a fact that had previously been doubted: Tom Wansey can actually freaking ''act''.)
*** ...Never mind
you right now. That's the fact that Ace damn near [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome blew Googler's head off]] afterward.
real gift. (He then sheds a tear).
** Lady Illusion offers dies in Ace's arms, and Sparx and Random Virus come to take away the Human Emotions that Ace his side to comfort him.
* Random Virus as a character. He is a Lightning Knight and Ace's friend. However, an unidentified accident left him severely injured and mentally damaged. He became a cyborg suffering from multiple personality disorder, being either a self-loathing hero or a violent destructive psychopath who
has been a twisted sense of justice.
* The pilot has a musical montage showing Mark
struggling with to adapt to high school, and looks longingly to the entire season UK on a map in geography class. We then cut to Ace touching a computer screen and bowing his head in sadness, implying he misses his home too.
* Mark and Samantha closing the book to their relationship so Mark can pursue Kat. Both give each other a thankful kiss, but when Mark leaves, Samantha looks heartbroken.
* Chuck's near death experience
after TakingTheBullet for a crazed Ace zaps him in with a lightning bolt. This plays back to a previous episode when Chuck was hit by a deflected lightning bolt and temporarily gained superpower.
-->'''Ace Lightning:''' Good thing it was a deflected shot, or he would have sizzled.
* The episode "Nobody's Hero" where Mark's normal life is collapsing around him, he is stalked by Lord Fear, and he is growing tired of lying to his loved ones. So when badass Sparx arrives on
the final scene and belittles Mark, he just snaps and quits the hero business. He comes back the next episode, calling it "her last gift to him". He tells her but Ace is deeply saddened by his departure, not to. He wants to keep them. As much as they have screwed him up really appreciating the effort and over stress his sidekick went through.
* There is some pity for Duff Kent and Mr. Cheseborough, whose lives are invaded by the video game characters. Duff's livelihood is effected by Lord Fear, and Mr. Cheseborough goes from a somewhat SadistTeacher to a paranoid wreck believing he was abducted by aliens.
* Lord Fear's defeat
in the last half a dozen episodes or so, they ''are'' first season's finale has him going down on his knees begging for Lady Illusion to save him. She refuses, revealing her loyalties to Ace. The likely realisation the real gift. love of his life had betrayed him for his arch nemesis hit Lord Fear hard judging by his hatred towards her in the second season.
