* Chapter 5: Everything about the whacka near Downtown Crag, if you decide to hurt him. He's a lovable, optimistic OneSceneWonder... and if you hit him repeatedly to get a whacka bump, he downright vanishes. The game never downright states whether he simply fled or died, but the latter option is implied because of the Whacka's progressively nonsensical dialogue when you hit him, and a Cragnon girl depressed over the Whacka's departure after he leaves. The same thing happens in the previous two games, but this one especially drives the point home.

* The recurring {{Railfan}} NPC Toad is apparently ''depressed'', as he always says something along the lines of "trainspotting is the only thing that fills up the emptiness in my life" whenever you talk to him.

* On the Sunset Express, a Shy Guy decides to speak with Mario. He laments that he dreamed of going to a far away place, but being in Bowser's army means he has to give up on his dreams. Towards the end of the conversation, he realizes the next time he and Mario meets, they're more likely gonna meet as enemies. [[spoiler: And meet as enemies they do. Later in the game, after defeating a Shy Guy, this one says he's the one from the Sunset Express. He says "If it had to happen this way, I'm glad it was you..." before disappearing... Making matters sadder is enemies in Mario, especially in the Paper Mario series, rarely [[NonLethalKo die]], but the Shy Guy's dramatic lines combined with the fact that he never reappears implies he really did bite the bullet!]]

* The Piper sidequest has color-coded Toads reminiscing about their old friend Piper, with hopes to see him again once rainbow-colored flowers bloom around their favorite tree. [[spoiler:Turns out Piper died, and not in a drained-color way. It's punctuated by the flowers falling off the tree and blowing away. It has a happy ending. though, when [[spoiler:Piper reincarnates out of a seed]].

* You can die after beating the final boss if you don't save Peach in time, or if you don't have enough red paint to save her. Waiting too long will have the castle collapse completely, killing Peach, Mario, and Huey.

* The ending has [[spoiler:Huey leaving to get rid of the black paint, having to lie to Mario and friends so they'll let him leave]]. Afterward, Peach reassures Mario that no matter where [[spoiler:Huey]] is, she feels he's happy.

** Making it worse is that [[spoiler:the second encounter is optional, as the Shy Guy is swinging from a trapeze in the forest and can't be attacked unless you wait for the right moment. If you hadn't attacked that Shy Guy, he would've been just fine.]]

* A easy to miss one since the dialogue is obscured, but Kersti's {{Ungrateful Bastard}} rant in Scuttlebug Burrow takes on a new light when you realize that she thought Mario had left her to suffer. She even admits that it was her fault the Royal Stickers were lost.
--> Kersti:You listen to me! When Mario shows up, AND HE WILL, he's going to tear all of you guys to pieces! Mario, you're really taking your time! Where ARE you? What are you doing? Damsel in distress over here! Hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooo?! Don't you think you've kept me waiting a little too long? You didn't go home, did you? [[JerkassRealization Was it something I said?]] What am I going to do? Losing the Royal Stickers is all my fault. Aaaaaaaaah... I can't go back to the Sticker Star like this. Ooooooooh... Why me? Why this? Why now? Aaaah... Awwww... [[JerkassWoobie I want to cry... Wait, I am crying...]] Stupid crying... Sniffle...

**Also {{Heartwarming in Hindsight}} when you take in the above Scuttlebug Burrow moment. [[spoiler:Perhaps sacrificing herself was her way of making up for what happened?]]
