** Fingers confronting Van Dyle about his mothers death, and Van Dyle's response about how ForMeItWasTuesday, but unusually for that trope, its not said with spite, just resignation. Van Dyle is a bit of a scumbag, but he's just a hunter, not a sociopathic supervillain. He just never thought of his prey as living beings with their own feelings.

** Amanda Waller intended to create a new Batman to replace Bruce when he became too old to keep up the fight, which is how Terry was born. She also intended to have his parents killed, and hired Bruce's old fling Andrea, aka The Phantasm to do the deed, but ultimatly, she couldnt go through with it, and confronted Waller about how monstrous the whole project was and how it flew in the face of everything that Batman stood for. Waller agreed. If you know anything about Amanda Waller, it takes a LOT for her to admit being wrong about something. Not that it mattered, since Terry lost his father anyway...

-->'''Terry:''' ''[tears in his eyes]'' I yelled at him, Mom. He grounded me, and I wouldn't listen. ''The things I said''... ''[his mom hugs him]'' I'm such a jerk...

** It's even more heartbreaking when you realize that the last thing they did was fight.

* Though the scene where Max officially joins Terry's team is a mix of heartwarming and funny, her genuine confusion when Terry dubs her his Alfred is a kick in the gut to anyone who loves the Batfamily's BattleButler.

* In a cross-media example, ''SupermanBatman'' Annual #4 is a continuation of "The Call," which has Superman dealing with everything that happened while he was under Starro's control, including [[spoiler:Lois' death]].

* "Heroes." It's basically a dark and tragic {{deconstruction}} of the ComicBook/FantasticFour's origin, with three scientists becoming superheroes after [[FreakLabAccident a particle experiment gone wrong]]. Although they're granted public support, their conditions prevent them from having normal lives and it's eventually revealed that their powers will eventually ''kill'' them. Even worse, their so called "friend" Howard Hodges [[MurderTheHypotenuse set up the accident so that he could be with the female member]]. Seeking revenge, [[ShootTheShaggyDog they all die horribly in a fight with Terry]] and Hodges ''[[KarmaHoudini gets off scot free]]''. How would Bruce feel? Just because the writers were particularly sadistic that day, Hodges is actually ''horrified'' when the [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone full realization of sending his former friends and the woman he loved so much to their grisly deaths finally hits him]]. Somehow it hurts ''even more'' than if he just walked away smelling like roses.

* Spellbinder's last two victim's before he targeted Terry in "Spellbound". First poor Deakins is hit and he drags a valuable dress around thinking he's in the middle of a war, and dragging a wounded comrade to safety. Especially not funny for anyone who knows anything about PTSD. Then he goes after some poor woman, ''on her wedding day''. Scaring her out of her mind and nearly getting her killed at least twice.

** Or when Chelsea describes what "ISO" is; total sensory deprivation (no light, no sound, no company, nothing) and when she starts to describe its effects on her, her voice cracks, the tears start, and all she can do is beg Terry to get her out of there. Seeing the bubbly Chelsea reduced to this is shocking as well as heartbreaking, and makes her refusal to immediately forgive her father for sending her there much more understandable.
