** The fact that the Son's story is basically foreshadowing the events of Anakin's turn. He, too, will lose the struggle against darkness and ultimately destroy everything he holds dear.

* 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.

* R2-D2 and C-3PO running out of power and shutting down in "Nomad Droids." Threepio softly begs Artoo [[PleaseDontLeaveMe not to leave him]], then slowly shuts down himself while telling his friend that he'll be [[TogetherInDeath joining him soon]]. Sure, they predictably get better, but we still had to see what Threepio's [[DespairEventHorizon reaction]] to losing Artoo would be.

* The "Young Jedi" arc isn't a TearJerker on first glance...but when you consider that these kids probably won't survive Order 66...

** Bo sounds pretty angry, perhaps heartbroken, when half of the witnesses there [[spoiler:bow to Maul right after Vizsla's death]] and the two sides end up trying to kill each other momentarily as she and the others that are [[spoiler:still loyal to Vizsla flee the palace]]. While Death Watch is definitely a terrorist group and doesn't quite have the best for society in mind, you can see in other scenes that that they had [[VillainousFriendship camaraderie]] and [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes relationships with each other]], so this scene [[DefiantToTheEnd partly showed what]] [[NothingPersonal some of them]] [[WhatYouAreInTheDark ultimately felt about their cause]].



--->'''Obi-Wan''': You're [[spoiler: Satine's]] sister, aren't you? ... I'm so sorry...

*** And this was still relevant in ''Legends'' too, because there were all sorts of conflicts like Imperial Remnant vs. the New Republic, the Yuuzhan Vong, even more divisions in governments, the One Sith, and so on, almost as if the Clone Wars was simply just another stepping stone like these.

* Kix was the last person to see Fives before [[spoiler:the latter was killed for learning about Order 66]]. In the NEU, it turns out that he decided to follow his lead, which unfortunately, [[spoiler:also attracted the attention of Dooku and the Separatists once again. He got captured before he could warn the Jedi and the Republic, put into cryogenic sleep, and was supposed to be sent to Dooku for personal interrogation, but the transport was ambushed by clones. As per protocol, the ship was randomly sent through hyperspace, crashing into a remote desert world, far out in the Outer Rim. It isn't until nearly ''[[FishOutOfTemporalWater half a century later]]'' that a group of bounty hunters find him, and he has to deal with not only all the advances from the past several decades, but the fact that all his friends are dead and that he couldn't save the Republic, the Jedi, or anyone, including those even after the Clone Wars]]. ''Wow''.

** Its eventually discovered in [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels Rebels]] that [[spoiler: he survived, but he's become senile. Still a very sad fate.]]
* In "Point of no Return", [[spoiler: BZ]] sacrifices himself to defeat the buzz droids by letting them out of an airlock, along with himself. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
** Also [[spoiler: ''R2's'' near-death for some]], especially for viewers who haven't seen ''RevengeOfTheSith'' onwards. It really does look like that the previous episode's events have inspired D Squad.

** And even before that, when [[spoiler:Vizsla is just about defeated]], he looks around at his men, whose faces just read [[BrokenPedestal complete disappointment]]. The very man that told them to believe [[TheSocialDarwinist in the old ways]] and join Death Watch in the first place, that the strongest deserve to live while the weak perish, is a {{Hypocrite}} to them; a failure. ''Especially'' when his loss is to a [[FantasticRacism non-Mandalorian]].



** And later when Obi-Wan has to flee Mandalore, he says to [[spoiler: Bo-Katan]], "You're [[spoiler: Satine's]] sister, aren't you? *Beat* I'm so sorry..."

* In Issue 4, [[spoiler: Mother Talzin sacrificing herself to Darth Sidious so Maul can escape from Dathomir. When Rook Kast arrives with Maul's personal Gauntlet fighter to help him retreat, Talzin tosses Maul aboard and orders him to flee while she tries to hold off Sidious's Force lightning. Maul begs Talzin to come with him, but she tells him she can't escape this time, and [[IWillOnlySlowYouDown if she tries, they'll both die]]. Kast and one of her men are forced to restrain Maul as he struggles to help his mother and watches General Grievous impale her. Now Maul has lost both his brother and his mother, and the only allies he seems to have left are the Mandalorian Super Commandos (the Nightbrothers' fate is ambiguous, but the ending implies they were killed).]]

* In the second episode of the arc, "A Distant Echo", just as the squad is about to infiltrate the Techno Union HQ on Skako Minor, they notice that supposedly still-alive Echo is no longer emitting his signal to let them trace him, leading Crosshair to suspect that Echo may have turned traitor and is leading them into a trap. Rex denies that his own men would turn on them, but once Crosshair mentions that he wouldn't be happy if his squad left him for dead, Rex snaps and physically assaults Crosshair. This reaction suggests that the circumstances of Fives' death might still be fresh on Rex's mind, and he doesn't want Echo to die under similar pretenses. Once Anakin defuses the fight by sending the Bad Batch to scout an entrace, he tells Rex that he should be ready for anything that happens with Echo, and Rex requests that he be the one to deal with Echo regardless of what's happened.
