** There's also the somber callback in "Twilight" when J'onn remarks to Hawkgirl how so many of the Leaguers (himself, her, Wonder Woman, Superman) are "orphans and exiles". It's even more somber for the audience, knowing that J'onn (who at this point doesn't know Batman's identity or history) is actually understating the case.

* Pictured above: the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOooJW5SSDA massively heartwrenching scene]] in "Epilogue". [[DarkMagicalGirl Ace]]'s introductory episode -- which shows {{flashback}} images of her being held in various laboratories, her psychologically-broken parents (which she is implied to have accidentally mindwiped as a toddler), the mental-restraint helmet holding back her powers, and the rare occasion where she ''[[CryCute cries]]'' -- are enough to make you choke. In "Epilogue", Ace has created a new Royal Flush Gang with her powers, which have evolved into full-bore reality warping. Once they're taken care of by the JLU, Amanda Waller shows up with another job for the League: [[spoiler:take out Ace before she suffers a massive anuerysm and her powers deal out damage in the form of a psychic backlash that would kill everyone in range--"that's a distance measured in ''miles''". Batman takes a weapon designed to kill Ace and rushes into her hiding spot, where she reveals that she read his mind... [[ThouShaltNotKill and knows he won't use the weapon on her]]. When she finds out that she has little time left to live, Ace asks Batman to stay with her until the end. He sits in the swingset next to her and offers his hand, which she takes. Everything soon goes back to normal, and not long after that, Batman is shown carrying Ace's lifeless body in his arms.]]
** Possibly the most gut-wrenching part? Despite everything that happened to her and how different her PsychicPowers make her from everyone else, Ace's reaction to her impending death is one that anyone would probably have: she's scared...and [[StayWithMeUntilIDie she doesn't want to be alone]].

** The knife plunges in when you see the elderly Bruce Wayne collapse out of his chair in pain, trying to pick up his medication. He's so pitiable at this point. A man who gave Gotham everything he had, but he's only one man, and its never enough. The knife twists when you see a look of betrayal on his face, as Terry walks out on him, leaving him old, helpless and alone.

* Bizarro [[spoiler: getting lobotomized by Lex Luthor so the Secret Society could use him as DumbMuscle]]. It's really sad and horrifying that someone as childlike and more-or-less good-natured as the DCAU Bizarro was made into [[spoiler: a mindless tool by the villains]], especially after the [[HappyEndingOverride happy ending]] he got in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.

* "Ancient History" is one, especialy in the flashback. Carter Hall/Kator Hol believes he is a reincarnation of this Thanagarian warrior who came to earth with his wife. But then said wife cheated on him with his best friend and the two ended up getting poisoned because of a misunderstood order. Katar then poisoned himself to be with his wife forever. Makes the ending of "Shadow of the Hawk" a lot sadder, huh?

Added DiffLines:

* If one treats the [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond Justice League Beyond comics]] as canon, [[HappyEndingOverride then there's not really that much good left]] for the [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse main heroes]] that were not already addressed in Batman Beyond.
** Warhawk's backstory begins all the way back to [[spoiler:the death of Mari by Shadow Thief, in a dinner date when John would've proposed to her. She gets rushed to the Watchtower, but is unable to be saved. John reveals his proposal, and with her dying breath, she says [[FamousLastWords yes]]. Adam Strange arrives after her funeral and reveals that Shadow Thief has caused a civil war between his people and the now-refugee Thanagarians, due to following Carter Hall (who also dies a SenselessSacrifice in an attempt to bring peace) to that planet. Also accompanied by Shayera, they travel there and John kills Shadow Thief, a violation of the Green Lantern oath, and so he gets his ring revoked. Shayera and John end up retiring from the Justice League, provide a proper burial for Mari in her home village, as well as moving there to honor her memory ''and'' marrying.]]
** It gets implied that Wally [[spoiler:[[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence became one with the Speed Force]] at some point, along with Jay Garrick and Barry Allen. They can all still speak to the new Flash via telepathy, though, and towards the end of her debut arc, this leads to a HeartwarmingMoment where she tells Superman he said hi and wants him and his successor to race, just like the good ol' days.]]
** The circumstances of how they lost Diana. [[spoiler:[[ShaggyDogStory Justice Lords come back due to Luthor's weapon being temporary]]. Right after they seemingly lost their powers, they gave up and were sent back to their world without any sort of chains, and their world recovered from their rule. And then it leads to a power struggle between Lords Superman and Wonder Woman against Batman, with the rest of the founding members getting [[EvenEvilHasStandards sick]] and [[HeelRealization tired]] of the fighting and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere decide to leave Earth]] (though we never know if they stayed together or went their separate ways). Lord Batman contacts the mainverse Justice League for help, and so they do. By the time the situation begins to come to an end (and not a good one), their way back to their own world also began to close, and Diana, unwilling to leave this Earth in shambles, [[IChooseToStay stays behind to continue to fight]], even if it was for another world that was not her own and that she would be alone.]]
** It gets ''worse''. [[spoiler:Diana falls in love with [[AlternateSelf Lord Batman]], but a disguised Lord Wonder Woman kills him by snapping his neck. Diana goes [[BerserkButton berserk]] and strangles her to death by using the Golden Lasso, which promptly disintegrates due to being [[ThouShaltNotKill used to kill]]. To end the fighting, Lord Superman and Diana have a solely political and loveless marriage (and having a test tube son named Zod), and Diana [[TookALevelInCynic loses her]] [[BreakTheCutie idealism we've always seen throughout the show]], having become convinced over the years that Lord Superman's choice of rule is the best choice, since after all, crime and villainy has decreased substantially...]] By the time she returns to the main universe, it is now the era of Batman Beyond, meaning that all her friends are gone or old. ''Especially'' noted when she reunites with [[ShipTease Bruce]], where she laments over how it's been so long since she's seen him [[spoiler:in more than one way.]]
** While not a founding member, [[SixthRanger Aquaman]] has one too, although it's more about [[DaddysGirl Aquagirl]] than him. [[spoiler:When Mareena was only an infant, she got kidnapped. And remember the son he sacrificed his hand for back in Justice League? [[DisproportionateRetribution He banishes him for not fighting hard enough to prevent her capture]]. She gets saved, but now Atlantis only has one heir. Tired of her OverprotectiveDad, [[RebelliousPrincess Mareena]] sneaks off to the surface world (which Arthur had also severed connections with) and meets the hero [[ShipTease Warhawk]], which helps support her belief of reconnecting surface-underwater relations. Arthur gets mad about both of these things and gives her a choice: either stay in Atlantis and never go back to the surface, or join the surface but be exiled from Atlantis. She chooses the latter. Arthur is left alone with Mera, with no heir to the throne.]]

** While it had nothing to do with her powers, Hawkgirl's nightmare could be even worse: she dreams of having her wings locked together before being BuriedAlive in a small coffin. She is so intensely [[{{Claustrophobia}} claustrophobic]] that J'onn couldn't even get into her nightmare to save her, due to the mental barriers erected by her fear. If Batman hadn't defeated Dr. Destiny, it's very likely she could've died from her nightmare giving her a heart attack!
