** The scene that follows it also pretty sad. Megamind willingly turns himself over to the Warden. The look on his face says more than words ever will. It's like he's accepting that he will always be a villain and that he's lost all hope of being anything better.

** Admittedly, it could just be because here he is, Megamind, at Metro Man's monument, and here Roxanne is, about to find him trying to blow it up.

** Let us examine the opening scene a little more closely. Two planets are sucked into a black hole. Two babies, one from each planet, are sent away. Apparently, both were heading for the mansion...but Metro Man's pod ''pushed'' Megamind's out of the way, causing the latter to land in prison. Sure, Megamind had his own loving family, and the Warden (revealed in a later scene) was almost like a father figure for him. And let's face it, Megs probably would have turned out all right...if he hadn't gone to school. Those kids never gave him a chance. Metro Man, the supposed hero, never gave him a chance. Heck, even the ''teacher'' picked on him! Had these kids been nicer to Megs, the entire plot of the movie could have been avoided, and Megs could have lived a happier life. Realizing this...it's impossible for your heart ''not'' to break.

* A small moment, but how about right before Megamind takes on the persona of Bernard. Roxanne finds someone [Megamind] there and calls out. Megamind starts to panic and worriedly looks down at his pajamas. This brief moment shows how truly insecure Megamind is to the point that he would pretend to be someone else just so his dream girl won't be reproached by him.

* Discovering that Metro Man was a StepfordSmiler behind his superhero persona, feeling trapped in his role of TheCape by the expectations of the world around him.

* For this troper, the opening sequence definitely qualified- not just his repeated attempts at acceptance from his peers, but in the voiceover, just how much he sounds like he's trying to convince himself that he enjoys what he does.

** The simple fact that Megamind's parents, knowing they wouldn't be there for their son, gave him a protector and companion to accompany him to Earth. Even ''Superman'''s parents didn't think to do that.

** My God, you just can't control yourself when you see his face as he stares at Roxanne. That sad and lost frown like he would be a kicked puppy whimpering in a corner, those huge green eyes that basically scream "I'm sorry" while glinting as he would burst into tears at any second. But what really makes it the depressing moment ever, is this:
