* To some, the death of [[spoiler: Nhadar 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.

** 99 has the body of a frail old man, but like all clones at the time, he's no older than 13.

*** Or more specifically, "what have I ''not'' done", as Yoda was one of the few who ''did'' believe Ahsoka, and yet he did very little to help her because he felt overruled by the majority of the Council. And as a result, the Order is losing one of its most promising padawans.

** [[spoiler: Barriss' look of remorse toward Ahsoka as she is led off to prison. While she feels justified at having done everything else, it seems involving Ahsoka to the point of inadvertently risking her life is Barris' sole regret.]]

** [[spoiler: Think back to the trauma that Barriss, a ''young'' Jedi, has had to deal with in this war, particularly the brain worms. And then remember that after all that, she came to realize that the side of the war she fought for and went through all that for is wrong and corrupted. While it can't excuse her becoming a terrorist in response, is it any wonder the poor girl snapped?]]

* The what makes this episode almost unbearable is that [[spoiler: Barriss is ''right.'' The Jedi are fighting a pointless war in the name of a Sith Lord, (albeit unknowingly) and the Republic that they have fought so hard to protect will soon cease to exist.]] You can tell by Palpatine'ís expression that her speech strikes a nerve.

*** Doubles as a meta-example, as this not only marks the end of he 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.

** Rex speaking to Cut about how he fights so that their children and their children's children won't have to fight becomes HarsherInHindsight when you realize that the Sequel Trilogy exists and tells the story of how people about 50 years later (including the children and grandchildren of those who lived through the Clone Wars) are still fighting in a conflict that had roots in the Clone Wars or possibly even further back.

*** The Clones are rarely seen interacting with the Republic's citizenry outside of a purely military capacity. They have no friends, no family and no roots outside of their brothers in arms. Of all the people who would have most recognized and respected the Clones for their service, it would have been their Jedi commanders who led them in the field. Order 66 meant that the Clones had to gun down some of the few people who would have advocated for their recognition by the Republic and respected them as individuals.

** Considering that Anakin has always feared losing the people who are close to him (he later turned to the dark side because he was so scared of losing Padme), it's clear that Ahsoka's decision to leave the Jedi Order ''deeply'' hurt him. Obi-Wan attempts to comfort Anakin by saying it was Ahsoka's own decision and wasn't caused by any fault of Anakin's, but Anakin still profoundly feels the loss of somebody who was like a little sister to him.

* In "Citadel Rescue", the reprogrammed battle droids under [=R2D2's=] command are ordered to hold off a large force to cover the escape of the Jedi and the prisoners. Knowing that there's no way they'll survive, one of the battle droids says to [=R2=] "It was an honor to serve with you."

* [[spoiler: Obi-Wan's]] "funeral", especially Satine's reaction. While any GenreSavvy 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.
