* ''Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume'' is a light-hearted comedy with seven-minute stories. Then there's the last story in episode 5, "Won't You Keep It?". You know it's going to end on a sad note, but the twist -- such a simple twist -- makes it so much sadder, even though it ends with the last few seconds of a MoodWhiplash.
* Ika discovers what an umbrella is, and she eventually comes to use it as a weapon. ''Then it gets run over by a car.'' During the end credits for this episode, Ika holds the innocent, brave, crippled remains of the umbrella by the handle.
* Ika and friends head to the amusement park that Eiko's family used to spend happy days at when they were little.... to find that the economic downturn chipped it into a single teacup ride in the middle of a small city block, with a single elderly employee handling all the duties of the park. ... and they just happen to head there on the park's ''final day'' before it officially closes! Eiko promises the employee that they shall spend the ''whole day'' there to send it off with pride! This sequence will be very emotional to those in similar situations. [[spoiler: And then there's the HappyFlashback Eiko has of her parents, which causes her to start crying.]]
* Episode 5 of Season 2 has Ika Musume accidentally breaking an RC Car in which Takeru saved up his allowance for. Due to her fear of Takeru's reaction, Ika tries to make sure Takeru doesn't find out about it by pretending to be a "radio-controlled squid" for him, which Takeru doesn't really like. She even goes out of her way to clean the bathtub, until she admits what she did. Eiko then finds the damaged remains of the RC Car, and after giving them to Takeru, he tries to reassure Ika that he's not worried about it, with a deceptively happy expression. But the look on his face upon leaving the bathroom signifies that he is very upset, which Ika herself knew. She then shivers in place, obviously trying not to cry due to her remourse.
* Season 2. Mini Ika gets lost in the backyard of her owner's home, and goes on an adventure much like ''Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids''. Although she braves the dangers, she has ''[[DramaticIrony no idea she's even that close to the house]]'', and she keeps getting flashbacks on how happy she was with Eiko, and is convinced she'll never see her again. And she starts crying. In the rain...
* In episode 12 of Season 1, after Ika [[spoiler: cuts her tentacle hair after they stopped working and started to talk normally]], Takeru finally loses it and chucks a float toy at Squid Girl, then he breaks down sobbing and proclaiming that [[WeWantOurJerkBack he wanted the old Squid Girl back]].
