* DownerEnding's from the episode "The Great Fusilli". Sure, the episode's grim ending is played for laughs, as per usual, but when you really think about it, it's actually pretty sad: In It, Courage fails to stop Muriel and Eustace from being turned into puppets. But as the show has a NegativeContinuity, everything will return to normal. Of course, that hasn't stopped it from provoking tons of dark theories...

What makes it worse, was the creator thought the show would be cancelled, which meant ''this was going to be the series finale.'' Thankfully, the show got renewed for a second season.

* Many comics depicting the destruction of their family is sad. Eustace and Muriel are old [[WeAreAsMayflies and Courage is a dog]]. No matter which one of them passes first the other two are going to be devastated.

** Back to "Ball of Revenge"...what makes it even sadder is the fact that after all the times Courage has actually saved Eustace despite how badly the old man treated the poor dog, how does Eustace repays him? By hiring Courage's past foes (''all'' of whom Courage had saved Eustace from) to finally ''kill'' him and not only does Eustace enjoys Courage's pain without the slightest bit of sympathy, he's also very ''eager'' of the foes about to kill the poor dog. The ''entire'' episode just becomes a tidal wave of a tearjerker as it moves along. Seeing poor Courage, defenseless and whimpering while getting brutally wounded by his enemies is just heartbreaking to watch; the similarly depressing and brutal "Courage Vs. Mecha-Courage" suddenly almost looks tame by comparision. But it's even worse when you realize Courage has managed to get out of horrible situations before. [[DarkestHour But here, he doesn't shapeshift or do anything to defend himself, and the tense/dramatic music really makes it seem like it is truly ''the end'' of Courage]].

* "The Mask", which tackles the very mature subject of [[DomesticAbuse]]. A talking rabbit named Bunny ended up with an abusive, controlling, gangster, asshole, rotweiller dog named Mad Dog and is not allowed to be with her best friend Kitty anymore. (It's also heavily implied that she and Kitty are romantically involved.) This leads Kitty to believe that all dogs are evil. Now take that last sentence and replace "dogs" with "men". The ending is a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when [[spoiler: Mad Dog gets his just deserts and Bunny and Kitty are reunited.]]
