* During her travels with the circus in ''Agatha H. and the Clockwork Princess'', Agatha, during her training with Zeetha, [[GenreSavvy recognizes that the day's exercise is supposed to end with her realizing how unprepared she is for Quata'ara swords]], and says she'll pass. Surprisingly, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Zeetha gets uncharacteristically angry]], and pushes her harder than usual - only stopping when Oggie helps Agatha when she stumbles. Later that night, Zeetha admits that she overdid it - and explains that the normal result happened pretty regularly, to the point where trainees sometimes get themselves killed.

-->"Except of course, when they ''do'' manage to kill themselves. My cousin, Zoniax, she was so much faster than I'll ''ever'' be. But they gave her... they let her..." She broke down sobbing. Before she knew what she was doing, Agatha found herself cradling the crying girl in her arms.

** Two high points? "The music's stopped..." and the colour from the background fading into a dull sepia.

** The novels manage to make it worse. In the comics, Tarvek soldiers on with what he was doing. In the novel, he openly cries for a few minutes, before getting back to work.



*** The novels give Agatha a line after that: "you were never just ordinary".

* The reveal of why Carson's so sceptical of Agatha's claim: [[spoiler:"Klaus Barry Heterodyne". Agatha had an older brother she never knew about.]]
** [[spoiler:The Heterodyne Boy's reaction to the attack. Bill goes insane with grief at his son's death and his wife's disappearance, so insane even the Jaeger generals couldn't restrain him. And then, after several hours of private discussion, the Boys packed up what they could, left Mechanicsburg... and never came back.]]

* One of the final chapters of ''Agatha H. and the Clockwork Princess'' begins with a song called "The Heterodynes will Return". The first verse is cheerful, and hopeful, talking about how Bill and Barry will come back, bringing wonders with them, and Make Things Right Again. The second?
-->''But I think the Heterodynes -\\
they will return.\\
[[ExactWords They will come with fire and smokes]]\\
and machines a'blazing in the night.\\
They will stare at us from bloodspattered faces\\
They will pull us up and roughly exclaim\\
"We brought you years, but you've done nothing\\
and now the monsters are a'snapping at our heels!"''
* ''Agatha H. and the Voice of the Castle'' manages to make Carson's tale of the attack on Castle Heterodyne ''more'' depressing than it already was. At one point, the Jaegermonsters are mentioned to be ''crying''. Jaegers. Crying. The narration notes they don't cry when their Heterodyne cries. But the death of [[spoiler:Klaus Barry Heterodyne]] is enough to make them weep.
** [[spoiler:After arriving at the castle, and once he calms down enough to say ''anything'', Bill's reaction is harsh. He ''exiles'' the Jaeger generals, who don't even argue. They just nod and accept the judgement of their Heterodyne.]]

* The Master of Paris just looks so tired when he explains that the end of the Shining Coalition was not as simple as history tells it (with the Storm King getting lost in a hedge maze) but instead the rest of the coalition having to "put down" Andronicus, whom he describes as having become a "corrupted shell" by that time. It's brutal to see that [[TheGoodKing Andronicus,]] [[TheHeart hailed as the heart and soul of their Coalition]] [[FallenHero be turned into a wretched corrupted remnant of himself]], forcing his friends to fight him to preserve he helped create. We see in flashback one of the Coalition members was sobbing and another had collapsed on the ground after the Storm King's defeat. [[spoiler: The realization that his friend was not buried but merely placed in stasis right under his nose doesn't help.]] The Master is also the last member of the Shining Coalition left alive and thus the only one left who could put an end to the monster that was once his close friend.
