** After fighting off a group of ghosts by himself, an injured, presumably dying Bobbery asks Mario to fetch him his bottle of Chuckola Cola, the one he had been saving for him and Scarlette, so that he could savor one final drink before expiring. When you get it for him, the heartbreaking music kicks in as he takes his last drink, then utters how he'll finally be with Scarlette. With his final wish fulfilled, the sea captain dies peacefully... or at least, you think he does, [[MoodWhiplash until you realize that]] [[FunnyMoments he just fell asleep]].

* Nastasia's reaction to [[spoiler:Count Bleck's supposed death. He was literally his whole life, and one of Carson's stories heavily implies that that she used to be a bat that Count Bleck saved, and she became a human to serve him out of gratitude.]]

** [[spoiler: It's made even worse when you consider the final boss fight of the game, during which you witness a montage of several different dimensions being utterly destroyed. Thankfully, Chapter 4 wasn't among those shown, and they're all restored to existence in the end, but...To be a young child, having to experiencing cessation of existence alone, in the center of a monster-infested maze, all out of a refusal to leave all that you have left of your kingdom and your mother. [[AdultFear It makes one wonder whether Squirpina considered this as a possibility when she put her plan into action or not...]]

* Chapter 4: After defeating Mr. L and enduring a slightly annoying young alien named Squirps for the entirety of the level, you find out that [[spoiler: Squirps is actually a prince who was in hibernation for 1,500 years in order to protect the blue Pure Heart. He shows you a statue of his mother, the Queen, and after explaining things, asks her statue, "Mommy...I did good, right? Are you...proud...of me?" and then lays down in front of it in a manner sort of reminiscent of death. Luckily he was just sleeping, but the rather vague way the game puts it honestly makes it sound like he might actually be dying for a bit.]]

Not to mention his mother, and likely his whole race, is long dead, with just him left behind in his empty home.]]

* A rather minor one, but still sad: after Chapter 1: Mayor Kroop of Petalburg puts in a trouble at the Trouble Center requesting that someone come talk to him (exact words: "Will someone please talk to me? Please?"). Considering it's already a RunningGag that Kroop is a crazy old senior who rambles for so long that those listening to him fall asleep, the trouble, of course, is PlayedForLaughs, but consider the predicament of many real life seniors who wind up friendless and lonely in their old age, and the event [[FridgeLogic suddenly becomes much sadder]]. And leads to a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when Mario takes the trouble on.

* 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, bit by bit you [[MoralEventHorizon inflict brain damage on him]] and finally kill him in what is probably the most horrifically disturbing sequence in the entire game.
** There's a Whacka in every game, and the same sequence of events occurs each time. Ladies and Gentlemen, Paper Mario: a game series where you can murder an innocent creature and eat his remains.

* 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, bit by bit 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 [[MoralEventHorizon inflict brain damage on him]] hit him, and finally kill him in what is probably a Cragnon girl depressed over the most horrifically disturbing sequence Whacka's departure after he leaves. The same thing happens in the entire game.

previous two games, but this one especially drives the same sequence of events occurs each time. Ladies and Gentlemen, Paper Mario: a game series where you can murder an innocent creature and eat his remains.point home.

* The fact that Mario is forced to fight ''his own brother'' is heartbreaking. Sure, Mr. L. is comedy material but one can only wonder what Mario is thinking upon seeing Luigi brainwashed and turned into Count Bleck's lackey, what with him being a [[AudienceSurrogate Player Surrogate]] and all. [[spoiler:The final battle only makes it worse, considering Mario has to beat his own brother to ensure the safety of the multiverse. Seriously, Dimentio's defeat and humiliation cannot come soon enough.]]
