* [[spoiler: Smee's sacrifice.]] Even worse was that this was the first death, causing Rooke to [[HeroicBSOD want to quit]] in fear of killing any more of her Pokemon.
* Lucy revealing her feelings for Donovan, only to get rejected.
* Many of the characters' backstories are pretty sad:
** Kindle definitely has the saddest backstory. His abusive trainer refused to pull his best friend from battle, causing him to die. Angry, Kindle ran away from his trainer planning to never get caught again. He was.
** Miss was constantly ridiculed for being a female Machop, causing her to fer evolving. In Chapter 9, when a ray causes every Pokemon to evolve, Miss is forced to suffer to prevent herself from doing the same.
* [[spoiler: Oji's]] death was also pretty sad.
* [[spoiler: Granite's]] death was one of the harsher ones, especially seeing how far he has come since the beginning of the comic.
* Chapter 8 was an emotional rollercoaster:
** [[spoiler: Mystery's death is by far the saddest moment in the comic, especially given how unexpected it was. Even more heartwrenching was the characters' reactions; Scout breaks down into tears and goes into HeroicBSOD, Miss takes her anger out on everything, and Granite begins to sob into Mystery's burned tophat.]]
** And if that's not enough, only a few pages after, [[spoiler: Sam almost dies, causing Kindle to break down for the first time in the entire comic. However, she survives, and evolves into an Espeon.]]
* The ending is incredibly sad as well. [[spoiler: Rooke ultimately decides to leave, and says goodbye to all of her friends. However, right before she arrives home, she decides to turn back, but it fails. She spends the next six months trapped at home, thinking that she can never return to the Pokemon world, before seeing Lugia again.]] This ending rivals the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon endings in terms of sadness.

* [[spoiler:Lilly]]'s death may be the worst so far--[[spoiler:we get a five second HopeSpot before she narrates a heartwrenching monologue about how unfair it is that she has to die now and how much she wishes it could have lasted longer as she plummets to her death. Her funeral afterward is also heartbreaking, with Jet wallowing in guilt and her Pokemon crying at Lilly's grave. Special mention goes to Firedog, who just sits there at her grave, [[HeroicBSOD too distraught to even say anything]].]]

* Meta-example. On late Feb 2017, the author would had his car [[https://twitter.com/Nuzlocke/status/833569811619684352 broken into]] and have his 3DS and ''all'' his Pokémon games stolen. This meant that that he lost all of his friends in real life whether they lived through the story or not. The only legacy left of them would be the webcomic itself where he [[https://twitter.com/Nuzlocke/status/833722225106694144 already written down]] the notes for White.

!!!A Petty Nuzlocke Challenge:
* [[http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/305/c/5/nclg___part_11_by_pettyartist-d31xrd7.jpg Lavender Tower]].
* [[http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/023/3/f/nclg___part_25_by_pettyartist-d37ueyy.jpg Part 25]] cements Gary as a JerkassWoobie with extra emphasis on the {{Jerkass}}. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTAnAYGKmC4 More painfully-well applied music follows]].
* The battle against Lorelei has a wham moment that hits ''hard''. [[spoiler: A mere one episode after joining, Vinny the Magneton- already shaping up to be a fan favorite- is killed by Lapras' critical Surf.]] Good night, sweet prince.
* Petty's formspring makes an earlier event much harsher. Remember when James tossed Gary out of the S.S.Anne? [[spoiler: His Raticate died saving him]]
* [[http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/080/c/3/nclg___vs__gary_by_pettyartist-d3c759x.jpg The final battle with Gary]]. [[spoiler:Nadine going down after a stray Future Sight gave Gary's Charizard enough of an edge to finish her off. Made worse in the comments for the page, where Petty describes how she simply didn't have any choice but to let Nadine die due to Charizard's speed outclassing anything else on her team.]]
** On top of this, immediately following the battle, [[spoiler: Oak arrives and coldly shuts down Gary's protests, driving home the very same favoritism towards Locke that [[FreudianExcuse messed up Gary]] so badly in the first place]].
--->[[spoiler:'''Gary:''' But Gramps! I WON! I was Champion! I was actually SOMETHING until she--]]
--->[[spoiler:'''Oak:''' GARY. Go home. (He then proudly embraces Locke, ignoring and turning his back on his grandson) Come with me, Locke. We'll enter you into the Hall of Champions.]]
* A rare tearjerker induced by a happy scene. [[spoiler: Spuds and Barb adopt an egg.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtvDrTa9iXs The grand finale.]]
