to:

* Atlas' HeroicSacrifice. His life was a hard one, with Lidian as his only real joy and who ultimately couldn't bear to be apart from him either. So they just... stand there holding each other contentedly while waiting for the end, leaving Astro to feel his brother die over their link...

* When Tenma disowns Astro. This is mostly because of a truly harsh line delivered in a rather unique fashion. "And I dont... want you anymore." Somehow, Tenma manages to both sound just a bit confusingly relieved... and absolutely horrified that he's thinking this way. Even to those who know it's coming ,the line is INSANELY cruel.

** Granted, they completely changed Astro's cause of death (he gets hit by a car in both the manga and some of the adaptations), but it otherwise might have been too scary for kids.

* From ''Snow Lion'': "This is how it ends: in the snow. If it's the last thing I do, I'll put Astro Boy in the Robot Hall of Fame. Yes, Astro Boy, you've earned your place here with the best and here you'll stay for eternity... and here I'll wait for you, my friend. We'll face the end together."

* Tenma ''finally'' giving up on his schemes to reclaim Astro as his son: "I'm sorry... I give up... I just wanted Astro back, thst's all... I thought if I could get a brand-new Astro, he could be my son again... [[spoiler: so I tried to use Meeva to bring me a ''new'' Astro from the past...]] I know it was a crazy thing to do... but when I learned I couldn't have a brand-new Astro, I thought maybe I could get you to let me have the old one... I'm sorry... I know it's not possible... you win... I know you're his real mom and dad now... you're both wonderful parents... I know you can make him happy... I'll never come here again... I promise... give my regards to Astro..."
