* 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..."
** For vehicle enthusiasts and old school StarWarsTheCloneWars fans, [[spoiler: the ''Twilight'''s]] destruction.

* 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.

* Think of all the times that Obi-Wan works with Commander Cody, how well they seem to work together... and now remember the battle on Utapau in Episode III.
** Heck, think of all the times the clones have worked with the Jedi and remember order 66.

* The ending of ''Downfall of a Droid'', where now nobody cares and forgets about Artoo (because he's assumed destroyed in action), except for Anakin.
* 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.

to:

** [[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.
* The ending of ''Downfall "Downfall of a Droid'', Droid", where now nobody cares and forgets about Artoo (because he's assumed destroyed in action), except for Anakin.
** Obi-Wan is surprisingly cruel, stating R2 is "just a droid" when he's known the little astromech and worked along side him longer than Anakin.

** Notice the grave look on Gun-Di's face when he gives his men the order to make ready for what is basically a suicide mission. The clones are naturally all eager to do whatever is required of them, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone but Gun-Di obviously feels terrible asking them to make this sacrifice]].
