'''Any spoilers regarding ''The Clone Wars'' are unmarked. Read at your own risk.'''



* "The Hidden Enemy", when it's discovered that one of the Clone troopers, [[spoiler: Sgt. Slick]], ''betrayed'' the Republic. And in a way, he was justified. With the Jedi using the clones as fodder in the war, he was desperate for a way out. Even then, his last words felt genuine.

* [[spoiler: Hevy's]] HeroicSacrifice in "Rookies". Doubly so in the season three premiere, Clone Cadets (Season Three, Episode 1). During training, [[spoiler:Hevy]] befriended a clone assigned to maintenance duty named 99. When his teammates end up back on Kamino, they have to tell 99 that he died.
** [[spoiler: Cutup and Droidbait's]] death's are shockingly abrupt and brutal. Especially harsh if you've already seen the episode focused on the Domino Squads origin.

* To some, the death of [[spoiler: Nahdar Vebb]] in "The Lair of Grievous". Kit Fisto's reaction in which utters, "[[LittleNo No...]]", is especially depressing.
* Incredibly, "Trespass" manages to make one of these out of the death of HateSink [[spoiler: Chairman Cho]]. After instigating a pointless conflict with the indigenous [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Talz]], he gets at least 11 clones and an unknown number of Talz killed through [[TooDumbToLive sheer stupidity]] before he gets a [[LaserGuidedKarma spear in the back.]] Instead of recognizing [[HeelRealization the error of his ways]] and trying to make amends, he wastes his last seconds [[NeverMyFault cursing the]] [[FantasticRacism Talz "savages"]] and begging [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Senator Chuchi]] to avenge him.

It turns from a HeroicSacrifice into a SenselessSacrifice because instead of keeping [[spoiler: Grievous]] as a prisoner, they end up having to give him back to the Separatists in exchange for [[spoiler: Anakin Skywalker]], who was captured by Dooku shortly after [[spoiler: Grievous]]'s capture.

Made even more tragic that it was the last shot of her in the first half of Season Four, and that we would not find out if she will be saved until January 2012.

While any adept viewer (or anyone who's seen Episode III) would realize that [[spoiler: Obi-Wan isn't actually dead]], Satine genuinely believes that the man she loves is dead and seeing her break down crying, particularly after she has spent every other episode she appeared in keeping up a strong, unflappable appearance, is heartbreaking.
** Also a bit earlier, seeing Ahsoka barely holding her tears and at the same time, hearing Anakin's desperately calling out [[spoiler: Obi-Wan's]] name, trying to wake him.

* Then there's Rush Clovis's ultimate fate as it were. All he wanted to do was purge the Intergalactic Banking Clan of corruption and keep it a neutral party as it used to be. Then after getting aided by Count Dooku in finding the stolen accounts and coming to power, Dooku blackmails him into "favoring" the Separatists and then sends an invasion fleet to Scipio to make it look like he's abusing his power. [[ShaggyDogStory In the end]], [[spoiler: he inadvertently brought war to Scipio, deliberately fell to his death to let his beloved live, [[TheScapegoat he is blamed for the corruption in the Banking Clan (especially when he was worried about his own legacy)]] and control of the Clan ends up falling to the Republic alone (giving Palpatine's future [[TheEmpire empire]] a large source of income for weapons such as the Death Star)]].
* The trial of temptation in "Destiny". First, Yoda is given an apocalyptic scene of a hallway in the Jedi Temple with the bodies of fallen Jedi, including Mace Windu, Petro and Ahsoka Tano. To make the last even more heart-breaking, Ahsoka asks if she'll still be able to become one with the Force [[spoiler: despite being cast out of the Order by the Council]] before dying. Then Katooni brings Yoda brings to a more idyllic scenario: there is no war, and everyone Yoda knows is still part of the Jedi Order, including characters who previously died (such as Qui-Gon Jinn, Tiplar, Knox and [[spoiler: Adi Gallia]]) or left/betrayed the Order due to circumstances connected to the war (Dooku, [[spoiler: Barriss Offee and Ahsoka Tano]]). Yoda really longs for those happier times, but he knows this isn't real.
* The series finale ''Sacrifice''. [[spoiler: After the visions of Order 66 on Dagobah and the trials in the Force planet, Yoda goes to Korriban[=/=]Moraband, confronts ancient spirits of Sith and Dark Jedi from [[ComicBook/TalesOfTheJedi various]] [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic eras]] [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic past]] and finally [[Literature/RuleOfTwo Darth Bane]] himself before he goes through a final illusion of him and Anakin facing [[TheDragon Dooku]] and [[BigBad Darth Sidious]]. After successfully enduring the illusion, Yoda is told that despite every suspicion the council may have, [[YouCantFightFate they cannot prevent the future]], the best he can do is pass on what he has learned [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence as a Force spirit]], [[Film/RevengeOfTheSith Anakin will fall to the dark side]] [[ForegoneConclusion and the Sith will exterminate the Jedi.]]]]
** [[spoiler:There is, however, a HopeSpot—he sees that [[ThereIsAnother there is another Skywalker]], and it's implied that he gets at least a glimpse of the events of the original trilogy, leading up to his own death, the [[HeelFaceTurn redemption of Anakin Skywalker]] and the fall of the Galactic Empire. At the end, Yoda, now with knowledge of the secret to eternal life, infers to Obi-Wan and Mace Windu that while they may not win the war, by becoming one with the Force—a technique that the Sith can never master—they will be able to sow the seeds of [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi victory over the dark side once and for all,]] showing that even in darkness, [[HopeSpringsEternal there is hope.]]]]

*** Despite Yoda's claim that "the future is always in motion," every single Force vision has in the prequel trilogy lends legitimate insight into future events. This would imply Anakin's visions of Vader were an inevitability rather than possibility, which has a number of disturbing implications. On a metatextual level, the mere existence of the original trilogy meant his role was set in stone. His character never had a choice to become anything but Darth Vader, and that casts a pall over every action he takes in denial of his fate, making it pitifully futile.

* The series finale ''Sacrifice''. [[spoiler: After seeing all the visions of Order 66 on Dagobah and the visions in Destiny, Yoda goes to Korriban/Moraband, confronts Ancient Dark Jedi and Sith spirits from [[ComicBook/TalesOfTheJedi various]] [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic eras]] [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic past]] and also [[Literature/RuleOfTwo Darth Bane]] himself before facing a final vision of him and Anakin facing Dooku and Sidious. They emerge victorious, but Yoda could not learn what was behind Sidious' veil as Palpatine detaches from the vision beforehand. At the end, Yoda is told that despite every suspicion the Council may have, they cannot prevent the future the best he could do is bring the teachings to a new generation as a Force Ghost and that [[ForegoneConclusion Anakin will fall and the Sith will win over the Jedi]]. At the end there is a HopeSpot however--he sees that there is another Skywalker and perhaps sees the events of the Original trilogy leading up to the redemption of Anakin Skywalker and the fall of the Empire, along with his own Death. At the end, Yoda, having learned how to become a Force Ghost, infers to Obi-Wan and Mace Windu that while they may not win the war, by becoming One With the Force, a technique that the Sith can never master, they will be able to sow the seeds that will allow for [[ReturnOfTheJedi victory over the Dark Side once and for all]], showing that even in Darkness, there is hope.]]

*** Doubles as a meta-example, as this not only marks the end of the series (at least on television), as Disney said "no" on continuing it (Even though allegedly Lucasfilm Animation is continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs, but how they will show them is currently unknown), but also marks the end of Lucasfilm's collaboration with Creator/CartoonNetwork, as future Star Wars animated programs, including the upcoming ''StarWarsRebels'', will be airing on Disney XD or Disney Channel.
