* In a way, Kuroka had it worse. She left her sister to keep her from becoming a fallen, and when she finally had the confidence to take her back, Issei, thinking she would hurt Koneko, [[BigBrotherInstinct almost kills her]] and [[ThisMeansWar declares war on her]]. Ouch.
* Akeno [[DeathByOriginStory lost her mother, Shuri Himejima, at the hands of her own clan]] and, overcome with despair, suffers a HeroicBSOD and blamed her father Barakiel for [[MyGreatestFailure his greatest failure]], effectively leaving her an orphan. Knowing [[YouCantGoHomeAgain she can't go home again]] since the Himejimas are out to kill her, Akeno resigns herself to live out the rest of her days in exile when Rias takes her in. Then, Issei and the Breast God helps Akeno reconcile with her father.

** Later, when she and Baraqiel first reunite, Akeno flat-out tells him that [[YoureNotMyFather he isn't her father]]. He looks like he's been struck by his own lightning.

* The entire StarCrossedLovers story between Cleria Bellal and Masaomi Yaegaki before TheAlliance was formed in volume 18. Issei even ponders on it as it could have happened to him and any person in his harem.

** To elaborate on volume 20, [[spoiler: Belial and Rizevem hold Issei's parents hostage. When he makes it there, he gets bound and forced to drink dragons blood by Belial, forcing his true nature as a dragon to be shown in front of his parents, reducing him to a sobbing wreck. Yet his parents don't hate him, and hug him. This causes his Bilingual to work its magic on Issei's parents. It shows their past, revealing that Issei had two other siblings that were tragic miscarriages before him. However, his parents persevered, learning from them instead of giving up, and finally had him. As more of Issei's childhood is revealed, it's revealed that the main reason for his inferiority complex is that he feels responsible for taking his dad's fishing pole without permission and when he breaks it, he feels like it's his fault. It's a partial catalyst to why he is so obsessed with Oppai; to keep his inferiority complex in the back of his head, while being genuine about his love of Oppai all the same. All of this is punctuated by his parents not caring if Issei is a dragon, and that if he was just a mindless monster, he wouldn't have felt fear of rejection. The inflections in his dragon voice were still those of their little boy, scared of what was happening to him in front of them.]] [[WhamEpisode Damn]].

* TheReveal that GodIsDead in Volume 4 causes everyone to suffer a HeroicBSOD. Asia and Xenovia are ''especially'' anguished by this revelation since they believed in God all that time. In a double irony, Xenovia ends up becoming TheHeretic and is exiled from the Church before she reconciles with Asia, who is also an exile.

* Issei's DeathByOriginStory at the beginning of the series at the hands of Raynare is tragic. After her WhamLine, Issei has a look of [[OhCrap utter horror]] and [[EtTuBrute betrayal]]. Despite his perverted nature, Issei's a good and noble character and he probably still cares about having her first girlfriend, unaware of what she's really like until he gets ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice. [[TheFarmerAndTheViper Someone he probably loved tricked and brutally murdered him]]. And all of this happens before he finds his first ''real'' girlfriend in the form of Rias Gremory.

He is so infuriated that [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge rampage against]] [[ArcVillain Raynare]], her murderer, is just as tragic.

* Sairaorg's past involves discrimination.
* As revealed in Volume 9, there are those who followed Cao Cao because he gave them a reason to live instead of being feared by their own peers because of their abnormal Sacred Gear powers. Issei even gets to think of Asia's life during the time she was a human with her Twilight Healing and that those who have Sacred Gears as a human didn't really have a good life.



** Not only Issei's death but the lead up to his death. [[ThrowTheDogABone Before he died he had just taken down Sairaorg and cemented himself as a hero in the devil world. His power had grew from a dirt-level devil to one that even a Satan could have trouble taking on. Not only that but he had just gotten promoted to mid class devil and judging from Azazel and Sirzechs' talk it won't be long before he becomes a high-class devil. Meaning his dream of starting his own harem wasn't a dream anymore. He also had heartwarming interactions with his friends such as calling Kiba his best friend and promising to marry Koneko in the future. To top it of he finally started dating Rias something which he had always wanted.]] When factoring in all his accomplishments, relationships and his future his death really is tragic especially since his death came out of nowhere. TLDR: the DiabolusExMachina hits Issei, and hits '''''[[YankTheDogsChain HARD]]'''''.

* In volume 12, the past possessors of Boosted Gear sacrifice their lives to stop Samael's curse while [[FamousLastWords singing the Oppai Dragon song.]] Normally it's funny, but somehow it's tear-jerking since they all sacrificed their lives and existences for Issei's will. Even Issei was silent about it.
