** When the professor cries, it doesn't sound like someone acting; it sounds like a father crying over losing his daughters. It sounds ''real''.

* The episode "Buttercrush". It's a little hard not to feel bad for Buttercup when she realizes Ace was toying with her feelings all along. Even during her NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to them, you can tell she's truly heartbroken.

* The ending of "Candy is Dandy"; the girls' addiction to candy has become so extreme that they pummel Mojo Jojo worse than they'd even beaten him before, to the point where even Mojo was ''crying and whimpering in terror for his life!'' Cue a MASSIVE MyGodWhatHaveIDone realization.

* In "All Chalked Up" when Buttercup destroys the chalk. Bubbles's reaction is super tragic and horrifying. Her loud, scary sounding InelegantBlubbering sounds NOTHING like it normally does. It sounds like real actual crying. A lot of fans did not take that well. And to top it all off, Buttercup ''is smiling the entire time when Bubbles is bawling.'' It even provides the page image. Try watching it without feeling bad for Bubbles.

*** What really makes it so depressing is that at first Bubbles's blubbering is extremely ''loud'' and at first, but later her sobs get much quieter as she hides in the forest, which is really how real crying sounds like. Creator/TaraStrong, [[HeReallyCanAct you really can act....]]
*** If you look in the background, all the kids plus Blossom look completely shocked at what just happened. But to make things worse, Buttercup is ''smirking'' the entire time Bubbles is wailing. That episode might have been what solidified Buttercup haters' hate for her.
*** A meta example, [[NeverLiveItDown good luck finding anyone who's forgiven Buttercup for that incident.]] If you're a Buttercup lover, you really won't be happy about how much resentment Buttercup got after that.



-->'''Mayor:''' And just what is that supposed to mean?
--> '''Blossom:''' ''[trembling voice]'' We knew it was the Professor.
-->'''Bubbles:''' But the toys!
--> '''Buttercup:''' And we couldn't stop.

** The scene where she is in her bedroom under the covers after being laughed at, the Professor comes in and asks if she's okay. Blossom tells him [[BlatantLies that she is]], and when she says so, it sounds as if she's about to cry. ''[[TheWoobie Oh, God, poor little Blossom...]]''

* The 2009 special "The Powerpuff Girls Rule" has the scene where Mojo Jojo gives up on trying to conquer the world and chooses to shut down his volcano lair and move out of Townsville while we hear him singing the Tears for Fears song Everybody Wants to Rule the World. It's pretty depressing to see Mojo feel so defeated and hopeless.

* Buttercup full-stop, if you think about it long enough. First of all, the professor had no good reason officially to name her Buttercup other than that it begins with "B". Second, she has no unique power [[spoiler: (and tongue-rolling doesn't count)]]. Finally, nobody really pays her any attention, and even when they do, it's usually when she's in trouble. Even some fans never seemed to care much, instead opting to exploit her misery and attitude for kicks and giggles. Especially since she tends to be remembered as "the bitchy one".
