*** Mengsk's backstory in general, really. His sister was ''fifteen'' when the Confederacy had her assassinated for her parents' rebellion. He decided to form a resistance group, and in exchange, the Confederacy ''glassed his home planet with nuclear weapons''. Mengsk may have been a terrible man, but nobody can say he didn't have his reasons for becoming one.

* The various short stories in the Project Blackstone anthology book ''War Stories'' are all over the place in tone, some being extremely bleak. There's stuff like a Dominion marine being forced to confront [[spoiler: his own resocialization and the crimes he committed that lead to it]], or the last of the creatures that were assimilated into zerg Overlords going mad with grief over losing its mate to a couple of marines that didn't know any better, or a lone zealot risking his life to inform his fleet that [[spoiler: the world he was trapped on was too dangerous for them to rescue him]]. And then there's the main story, which has stuff like [[spoiler: Jake Ramsey]] having a nervous breakdown and the mother of the refugee leader mentioned above finding out [[spoiler: her daughter is apparently dead.]]

** Especially when one considers the possibility of it [[spoiler:being a case of SuicideByCop]]. It is very difficult to imagine that Tychus could have faked enjoying himself during the revolution story arc or appearing VERY reluctant to get anywhere near Char.

Once he realizes that nothing will stop Raynor from going to Char, he might as well have resigned to the idea [[spoiler:that dying by the hands of his own friend is better than letting Mengsk kill him via that booby-trapped power armor]].

** Also, the end of ''Brood War'' was [[spoiler: crushing]]. This troper wanted to cry at what was done to [[spoiler: [=DuGalle=], Stukov, Raynor, Mengsk, and most of all, Zeratul. Definitely Zeratul. I want to fucking kill Duran. I LIKED STUKOV]]

* Fenix's death in Brood War. This troper is not ashamed to admit to having cried at that scene. [[spoiler:Especially considering that she killed him with broodlings.]] That just felt too cruel.
