* Each one of the houses you can enter in Westmarch is a nightmare. One human woman who had been born after her mother survived a demon attack and is strongly implied to have been raped by one or more demons ends up transformed into one by the Reapers due to her heritage. Her lines and diary seem to indicate she was a perfectly good person before this point. Her dying lines of the hero being too late as they've already stripped away all her humanity before transforming is horrifying and calls back to the Hero's inability to save Leah.

** To combine this with the extra sadness, Isendra was assassinated by a Viz-Jaqtaar assassin. She also worked with one during [[VideoGame/DiabloII her last quest to kill off Diablo.]] We don't know if it's the same Assassin, but the prospect of two former friends battling each other to death is sad.

* Some of the add-on stories of certain characters, especially those whose canonicity were confirmed via ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' can invoke this. In one swift night, Valla (Demon Hunter) lost her sister Halissa and her whole family, there's no wonder that after all that she became grim and really demon-hating. Meanwhile, Li-Ming (Wizard), just as she was really getting along with her master Isendra... well suddenly, said master was assassinated.

* Another mother appears midway through Act V, calling for her children, who apparently are playing somewhere else. Her carefree demeanor sounds out of place from the beginning and when her children aren't coming back, you get the feeling there might be something very wrong. The whole thing ends with the woman asking the protagonist to pass along a message to her children should they see them. The protagonist simply agrees. It's never spelled out, but it doesn't take a lot of imagination [[DeadAllAlong to see what's going on]]...

* Some of the NPC chatter in Bastion's Keep can be this. Some of the wounded guardsmen, for example, have lost hope after seeing their comrades killer, or apologize to their commanding officers for not being able to fight anymore, while others ask about their loved ones.

* An event in Reaper of Souls, where the spirit of a woman appeals to you to put her husband's soul to rest. Much like in Act 1 you get a small speech where their restless spirits have been placated, and are ready to move on...until a Death Maiden appears, and turns them into Revenants, and takes center stage to fight you. It just serves to show how dire the situation is, that not even the dead are safe.
