* The death of [[spoiler:Tiberus Gracchus and ThePurge of his supporters. He had the best interests of Rome at heart, and tried to restore an old agrarian law that had gone unenforced and his reward for that is a shockingly brutal death]]. His famous speech quoted by Daniel is also quite sad in its eloquent observation about how the state exploits its citizens:
--> '''Tiberius Gracchus''': ''"The savage beasts in Italy have their particular dens, they have their places of repose and refuge; but the men who bear arms, and expose their lives for the safety of their country, enjoy in the meantime nothing more in it but the air and the light.They fought indeed and were slain, but it was to maintain the luxury and wealth of other men.They were styled the masters of the world, but in the meantime had not one foot of ground which they could call their own."''

* The "Lies" segment of Admiral Yi says that James was only able to find one critical work of Admiral Yi's life; his own autobiography. In spite of everything he did, he still did not think himself worthy. Fortunately, history was a lot more forgiving.

-->'''Daniel Floyd:''' Korea was free, but Yi would never see it. Thousands turned out to see his body returned to his small home village. People lined the road and wailed at the passing of a man they may never have met. The Chinese Admiral wrote for him a eulogy, and even the court and the king tried to make their recompense. And so passed the man so ill-treated in life; so often demoted and accused. The man who would forever be known as the Martial Lord of Loyalty.

---> What makes it somehow worse is that Justinian still worked hard to get his empire back in order. He never failed to remember his duty, to rule the empire that he worked hard to maintain. As Daniel says, most men would have given up and let the empire slide, but Justinian kept carried on even though he had lost some of his passion and joy for life.

* Daniel's last words on Justinian's life, his death, his possible last thought and what might have been.

* Extra Credits does not shy away from how some people can ruin games and gaming for other people, and the effects are shown. The episodes on toxicity show the hurtful things said to other people without censorship. In the local multiplayer episode, a cartoon of a man is reduced to tears when his partner is raging.

!!Side Quest - ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsI''
* The Lost Izalith episode is just a bummer all around. Dan first meets Solaire, when the latter is [[HeroicBSOD having an existential crisis over not finding his personal sun]], and later Siegmeyer (aka. Onion Knight), who [[spoiler: dies from exhaustion after fighting the Chaos Eaters, even though he arguably fared better then Dan against them]]. ''Dark Souls'' veterans may also note that [[spoiler: Dan unknowingly passed the point-of-no-return to save Solaire, too, so he's not going to last much longer, either.]]
