*** The last scene of the credits tells us that John has gone to meet Caliborn's challenge. It would be a BolivianArmyEnding if we didn't already know how it ends.

** [[http://cel3stial.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=246 Many of the Trollmegle logs in this thread]] are sad, but particularly the one in the third spoiler tag on the first post, where doomed-timeline Karkat tries desperately to ease Terezi's suffering as they both die. On top of that, he seems to totally disregard his angst over his blood color out of devotion to this final purpose.

*** Worse yet is the possibility that the reason he can't do it is due to her always picking away at his self confidence.

*** Worse yet is the possibility that the reason he can't do it is due to her always picking away at his self confidence. What she saw as (horrifyingly wrong) attempts to make him tougher and into the kind of person he could be were breaking him and stripping him of his self-worth.

* God-Tier Calliope can't help the heroes win, as only Caliborn could have won her session. So, she died and waited for regular Calliope to arrive so she could move on. Before fading, she gave her other self this advice.

** Karkat mentions that Kanaya has drifted away from him due to her new relationship with Rose, to the point where he doesn't know if they're still friends. Dave doesn't outright say it, but the friendship speech he gives to Karkat afterwards has no mention of Rose, implying he has a similar feeling about her.

* [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004708 This]] and the following two pages just make you feel horrible for Aradia. Rose's last two lines are kind of sad though also [[CrossesTheLineTwice hilarious]].

* This one's old, but any time Rose (one of the darkest characters in the comic) has a conversation with Jaspersprite (quite possibly the most innocent thing ever), I start to tear up. [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004716 This one]] is especially bad.
** The way that Jaspers doesnt quite realize that he actually died is heartbreaking. He loves Rose so much and it's incredibly sweet. Especially for a cat owner.

* As with the Aradia example above, seeing Jade, the normally very cheerful and optimistic girl just out right FLIP OUT and start yelling at both Karkats, is....really unsettling

** *** [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004839 Karkat's conversation with John]], doesn't make it any easier. Karkat still acting like it was just his way of saying hi is still somewhat amusing, but it still makes one think maybe the poor kid's saying it because he doesn't want to face the reality.



* Aradia saying her final goodbye to Sollux.
** Coupled with Equius's reaction from the back. He's notably just as shaken as Sollux, maybe even more so, not only because he loved her but the fact that she chose to say goodbye to her ex-boyfriend and not her current one broke him.

** Two bits of fan speculation make it ''worse'': 1) If Redglare had been around during the Sufferer's time, she may have caused romantic tension and 2) Nepeta's coat is actually the Righteous Leggings stained green from years of the Disciple cuddling and crying into it.

* Vriska and Meenah's conversation about Lord English actually makes a surprisingly good case for him being an incredibly lonely and miserable TragicVillain, with his egotism and obsessive behavior having ruined his life and prevented him from ever gaining [[IJustWantToHaveFriends the love he deeply desires]]. It's unnerving and unexpectedly sad to see this evil, terrifying monster suddenly reduced to something so small and tragically human.

It's unnerving and unexpectedly sad to see this evil, terrifying monster suddenly reduced to something so small and tragically human. It's heavily implied Caliborn was [[ForTheEvulz evil since his personality first emerged]], but it's still pretty depressing to ponder.



* As a much-loved character, Spades Slick's death was saddening to many readers.

** As of the Credits upd8 she is fine, but has been [[spoiler:searching for Vriska for over two years]].
* She has some happy moments during the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMZU89jY2j8 Credits]] but some time before John's 17th birthday, she disappears. By John's 18th birthday, we find out what she's up to. She's looking for Vriska, spending at least a year on the edge of oblivion, watching countless trolls fall into the black hole. Judging by how neither of the scourge sisters appear in the remainder of the snapchat pictures, either Terezi has spent three years in fruitless search of Vriska, or she fell in the black hole.

** That, combined with the fact that he is one of the only ones who lives alone, and he even told Jade she didn't have to come celebrate his birthday... Is this kid okay?
*** John's last act in the credits is to smash his phone and go after Caliborn. It would be a BolivianArmyEnding if Caliborn's masterpiece didn't already tell us how it will end.
