*** [[spoiler:When Big Mom was first taken into Mother Carmel, the other orphans jeer and bluntly tell Big Mom that her parents abandoned her, plain and simple. Even if it was true, that was pretty harsh of them.]]

** [[spoiler:We finally get to see Big Mom's life as a child. Born a giant unlike any other human children, she was abandoned by her birth parents on Elbaf because her size and presumably, her devastating hunger pangs for sweets had caused so much destruction in her home town.
She patiently waited for her birth parents to come back, unaware that they had no intention of ever returning and lied to her about it. She was taken in by Mother Carmel, a kindly nun who ran an orphanage for displaced children of all races, but although Mother Carmel raised her well and always forgave her for her actions, Big Mom frequently got in trouble in Elbaf because her strength and her good intentions caused her to wreak havoc.]]

** [[spoiler:[[AdaptationExpansion The anime]] makes it worse - Episode 788 reveals that before Moscato died confronting Big Mom,
[[ReasonableAuthorityFigure he was the one who tried evacuating as many citizens to safety as he could when Big Mom went on her hunger rampage through Sweet City]]. Is it any wonder that almost the ''entire city'' mourned his death afterwards?]]

** [[spoiler:Not only that, but chapter 830 reveals that Moscato was fairly beloved by Totland's civilian populace and his death bereaved them. One of his mourners is a little boy who cries over Moscato's husk of a body, [[PleaseWakeUp begging him to come back]], before being pulled away by one of Moscato's older brothers Charlotte Opera]].

** The chapter sees [[spoiler:an even more surprising moment of sympathy toward someone. '''Big Mom''' starts crying. Mother Caramel raised her,and the Straw Hats took away that one memento of her caregiver, not knowing how much Caramel meant to Big Mom. For as much of an AssholeVictim as Big Mom is considering the amount of blood on her hands, it still does tug at your heartstrings.]]

* Chapter 865 [[spoiler:sees an even more surprising moment of sympathy toward someone. '''Big Mom''' starts crying. Although he didn't know it, what Bege asked Luffy's crew to do was [[ThisIsUnforgivable unforgivably cruel]]. Mother Caramel wasn't just somebody Big Mom once knew... ''Mother Caramel raised her.'' That photo was all she had to remember her by, and they took away that one memento of her caregiver forever. And now she's going to face a death squad of the Firetank Pirates' top names while she spends what could very well be her last moments in total mourning.]]

** Also in movie 6, it's revealed that the Baron [[spoiler:killed Brief's entire crew in front of him. After Brief states that Luffy is not alone,and that he is his nakama, the Baron makes fun of him, asking Luffy "Why would you let such a pathetic insect be your nakama?" while attacking him. Luffy saves him, and yells "I told you I wouldn't let you hurt my nakama!" then gives Brief the tobihige salute. Brief bursts into tears while returning the salute. Considering he's been alone on that island for a long time (he build a huge underground system on the whole island!) this is probably the first time he's had any nakama since his crew was killed]].
** The reason why Baron became the movie's BigBad. [[spoiler:He was a former pirate captain who was just like Luffy in his heyday and also had a crew who he considered his nakama. One day, his ship ran into a terrible storm that only Baron survived, while his entire crew drowned. He later washed up on a strange island, where the Lilly Carnation resided. Driven completely mad by years of guilt and loneliness, he makes a deal with Lilly to bring back his dead friends (or at least create facsimiles of them) in return for feeding Lilly strong pirates. His actions were monstrous enough to warrant a KarmicDeath from Luffy, yes, but he has one of the most horrifying and tragic backstories that we've ever seen in a OP villain. For extra bonus points, due to being [[NotSoDifferent extremely similar]], [[FridgeHorror it's implied that Luffy had the potential to become someone like Baron if the Straw Hats were to die]]]].

** [[spoiler:A sudden flashback provides a harrowing explanation as to why Big Mom is so at odds with the giants of Elbaf. She's ''from'' there. Worse, Mother Caramel suddenly disappeared on her and nobody listened to her pain. All those reasons for hating them suddenly make perfect sense: she's an outcast among the giants.]]

** [[spoiler:While thinking, Reiju admits she has been ''ashamed of being a Vinsmoke her whole life'', proving her heart made her feel guilty of all she's had to do while under her father's wing, and that Sanji isn't the only one to reject the family name. She's also right up there with Sabo's spurning of his likewise royal heritage and his own abusive family, who mortified Dragon when he said he regretted being born a noble.]]
