* "#239: Crib Your Enthusiasm": An innocent man who just happens to be an infantilist ends up dying by complete accident when the drop gate of his adult sized crib severes his spinal cord. While the guy had an interest that wasn't commonplace and could be perceived in a bad way due to common misconceptions, he was completely inoccent, the worst thing he did was throw a fake temper tantrum. It's made even worse when you already have a bit of knowledge on the whole subculture, he could not control his interests and probably struggled to come to terms with them. When he finally finds a nice woman with similar interests and builds himself a nursery, he is almost immediately killed by something neither of them knew would happen.
** Made even worse by the narrator's attitude towards poor Barnaby. He talks about the man as if he were a complete and utter freak, and seems to be a bit more condescending, and even downright cruel in the way he mocks the poor man's interests.



* "#505: Verminated": An escaped convict runs into a sewer pipe to escape from the officers chasing after him. He crawls further in, until it gets too narrow and he gets stuck. He may have been a criminal, but it's hard not to feel a little bit sorry for him when he starts desperately calling for help and apologizing, before eventually breaking down crying because he's so terrified. And then he dies horrendously and painfully, eaten alive by a swarm of rats while screaming in terror...

* ''#457: Blend-Dead'': A woman tries to stay healthy by doing yoga and eating vegetables from her own garden. Unknown to her, her landlord has been spraying her garden with rat poison. The poison weakens her blood vessels until one day while exercising, they burst, killing her instantly. Unlike most of the people on this show, she was actually trying to live longer and did nothing wrong to deserve her fate.

Added DiffLines:

* ''#622: Brain Worms'': A young dating couple end up in hospital after the boyfriend, having convinced the girl that he was a skilled chef, makes a salad with live snails (under the guise that they were prepared like Escargot). What they didn't know is that the snails contained a parasite that worked its way through their circulation and eventually got into their brain matter, slowly killing them. Just before they die, the man reveals that he was gay and only wanted her because she "had the chest of a 12-year-old boy". [[DyingDeclarationOfHate Their final words before braindeath are how much they hate each other.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''#657: Dead Heat'': An asthma sufferer ends up triggering an asthma attack when his girlfriend forces him to smell her spicy cooking. The only thing we see him do wrong is hide his asthma from his girlfriend because he's worried it'll make him seem weak, but he DOES keep an inhaler on him at all times. Of course, since somebody has to die in this story, his inhaler runs dry after multiple uses that evening, leaving him with no means to stop his asthma attack and resulting in him dropping dead on the kitchen floor. To top it off, the girlfriend is shown absolutely devastated.

* ''#496: Recept-shunned'': A {{Jerkass}} wedding singer ruins a wedding reception, and in a freak accident (the groom gets up to confront him, the best man tries to stop him, the groom shoves the best man out of his way, and the best man hits the microphone stand as he falls) gets his microphone stuck in his throat, causing him to choke to death. What makes this one sad isn't the victim, since he had it coming, but everyone else. The wedding is absolutely ruined, before and after the death, but because the groom caused the death by assaulting the best man, he's technically guilty of manslaughter. So basically, the newlyweds got robbed of a proper wedding and now one of them will be going to prison.

* ''#534: Chucked Up'': In an attempt to spice up her and her husband's sex life, a housewife tapes her mouth shut and handcuffs herself to a chair while her husband watches via webcam from work. However, before the husband can leave for home, a burglar breaks in, and makes off with some valuables (including the laptop she was streaming from), but leaves her unharmed... until he mockingly thanks her for making his job easier, unwittingly causing her to vomit after he leaves as a result of his particularly bad breath. With her mouth taped shut and no way to remove it, she chokes to death on her own vomit before her husband (who helplessly witnessed the burglary through the webcam) gets home. What started as completely innocent foreplay turns absolutely tragic by no fault of the victim or her husband (both of whom, in their depictions, seemed like decent folk), and was completely unintentional on the part of the guilty party, and worst of all she gets one of the slower, agonizing deaths in the series.

* "#913: Dead Meat-Eorite": A young man goes to a party to talk to people about Christianity. Granted a party probably isn't the best place to talk about that sort of stuff, something the narrator even {{lampshaded}}, he wasn't a {{jerkass}} about it. He definately didn't deserve be [[DisproportionateRetribution hit in the chest by a meteor]]. It's made all the worse by the narrator, who just treats it like any other {{jerkass}} or [[TooDumbToLive dumbass]] getting killed.

* "#145: Mary-nated": The unfortunate couple who unwittingly hire Mary Mallon aka "Typhoid Mary" as their live-in cook. What makes it saddening is that neither the couple nor Mary were malicious in any way and this was just a series of unfortunate circumstances.

* "#389: Jelly-Belly-ed": The obnoxious girl who scared everyone with a fake shark scare and then dies a painful death after accidentally swallowing an Irikundi jellyfish. She was socially awkward and just wanted attention.

* "#818: Fright-Mare": A poor woman with a history of suffering night terrors dies of SUNDS in her sleep while dreaming that a goblin is strangling her to death; in real real life, her heart began beating arrhythmically and suddenly stopped, causing her to suffocate. Not the nicest way to go.
