* Redcloak's StartOfDarkness was when the Azure City Paladins killed all of his family but Right-Eye. When Xykon does the same thing by throwing their lives away pointlessly Redcloak is so for gone he doesn't even ''notice''.

* On [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots1023.html page 1023]], Roy has a quick chat with Veldrina, telling her to contact him with a Sending if the final verdict of the Godsmoot's vote is to not destroy the world. That way, he'll know the fight for the world is still on.
-->'''Veldrina:''' What if the result is a '''''Yes'''''?\\
'''Roy:''' Then nothing I'm doing will matter. Use those last few minutes to contact someone you care about before it's too late.\\
'''Veldrina:''' Wow, that's... kinda heavy.

** The last panel even has Wrecan waving at Roy (and the reader) from within temple slightly obscured by what looks like mist, as though he's saying goodbye from the other side.

** Everybody under the spell gets their happy ending. Haley is shown rolling in gold and helping her father take over the Thieves' Guild, which Roy wouldn't know anything about. Elan makes peace with his family, something the other two don't see as a happy ending. Roy gets to rub his swords-are-better-than-magic philosophy in his sister's face, something the other two wouldn't know would be a part of his happy ending. Clearly, there is no one point of view; everybody under the spell gets their happy ending. Belkar is dead, and is presumably killing monsters in the abyss. That's his happy ending.
*** And his cat's dead too. Which means either one of his teammates found the cat too evil to keep around, or Belkar wants the only thing in the world he cares about to stay by his side.

FluffyCloudHeaven cooking yummies for Lord Shojo, who's giving tummy rubs to keep around, or Belkar wants the only thing in the world he cares about to stay by his side. Mr. Scruffy.



*** And Belkar's "[[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0890.html happy ending]]" possibly cuts the deepest; He was Lord Shojo's cook. Not only is it a peaceful life for a man who seems utterly devoted to meaningless violence, it's not even possible even as an afterlife - Shojo is Chaotic Good, Belkar is Chaotic Evil. And Roy unknowingly rubs it in, declaring he doesn't want to hear about Belkar's fantasies about "stabbing and whores, and whores stabbing whores who stab whores." It could be taken that even ''Belkar'' didn't know what he really wanted until that precise moment.

* Page 1025 is one long LeaningOnTheFourthWall to Wrecan, referring to how the RealLife Wrecan passed away some time back and noting his love of chronicling how often each character appeared in the comic. Quite a fitting memorial, indeed.
