* When we're first introduced to Leorio, the audience was made to believe that he was just some greedy punk because his motivation to being a hunter was MoneyDearBoy. However, at the beginning of the Hunter's Exam, Kurapika learns that he wants the money to be a doctor and run a free clinic after [[spoiler: a close friend of his died at a young age]]. It makes his FunnyMoments where he rants about wanting money HarsherInHindsight.

** The final ending for the 2011 anime homes this in. It's a heartwarming montage of where most the cast are now. Most are range from happy to bittersweet, the sole except Kurapika, who is still in a room staring at the eyes of his fallen clan. The final shots are of the main characters looking at the sun: Gon in amazement, Leorio sleeping on a desk, Killua with his sister... and a weary Kurapika in in an alley.

** The 2011 anime portrayal is pure heartache. [[spoiler: it's straight blackness as you hear him and Komugi play, all the while Meruem continues to ask is she's still there. It's only after he asks her to hold his hand as he passes that you realize you are seeing things from Komugi's perspective. The faint light that appears floating around the screen is actually what Komugi is able to see by touching Meruem. The entire image shows up once she finds his hand and it's heart-breaking: him lying down, his head on her lap and her eyes closed, dried blood coming from her mouth and nose.]]

* Gyro's tragic backstory, how the only solace he had in his miserable life was the idea that deep down his father cared about and needed him, and how he completely broke when he found out both were false, and the resolve it inspired in him to make the rest of the world suffer. In spite of it having no payoff in the arc it's featured in and even in the greater story as of this writing (though it's flat out said that he and Gon will meet eventually, suggesting that he's a ChekovsGunman) it is frequently considered to be heartbreaking and a highlight of the arc's storytelling.

** Which makes Kurapica's quest for vengeance and Gon's outrage over the Phantom Troupe murdering people, even when they know full well how much it hurts to lose someone ''they'' care about, even more understandable and poignant. It also serves as a reminder that, for all their quirks and the loyalty they have towards each other, the Spiders are still a bunch of heartless, evil murderers when it all comes down to it.
