[[AC: Bad Batch Arc]]
* 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.

** Its eventually discovered in [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels Rebels]] that [[spoiler: he survived, but he's become senile. Still a very sad fate.]]

--> '''Fives''': (''[[InnocentlyInsensitive the driver stats that he likes mysteries]]'') Yeah, you ever hear the one about the people who were engineered to kill? Kill their best friends, their leaders! And they don't even know it!?

** Then there's [[spoiler: his FamousLastWords to Rex. Even Commander Fox's men of the Coruscant Guard (who were the ones who gunned Fives down) are saddened by this and take off their helmets in respect.]]

** In Ghosts of Mortis, [[spoiler: Anakin (now controlled by the Son of Mortis) now knows he will murder Obi-Wan (as well as many innocents) in the near future]]. When the pair face off Anakin destroys [[spoiler:Obi-Wan's]] transport in order to keep him stranded on the planet, telling him that he's only doing it to keep him safe, "for his own good". [[ForegoneConclusion Well, we all know how that turns out...]]

*** [[spoiler: The Father's suicide is especially sad. He's suffering the single greatest pain that a parent can suffer, having seen both of his children die, and is left with the acute awareness that [[ItsAllMyFault it's his own fault]] (by bringing the Jedi to Mortis, giving the Son an opportunity to make a break for freedom). [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation It's not unlikely that part of the reason that the Father killed himself was out of guilt and sorrow for the fate that befell his beloved children]].]]

* Every time you watch an episode, keep in mind the events that we know are going to happened in the future: Anakin will become Darth Vader and Obi Wan, Padme, and Mace will all die by his hands, the Jedi will be mostly exterminated (meaning that every single Jedi character we see in the show will most likely be victims of Order 66), the 501st Legion will become Vader's personal hit squad, Yoda will be forced into exile for the rest of his life, Palpatine will turn the Republic in to an oppressive dictatorship, etc. This make all the 'happy' episodes (Every time Anakin and Padme reunite, the future 501st Legion soldiers in training, Yoda giving words of encouragement to the clones) much harder to watch.
