* Mandark's dream at the beginning of "Mandarker".


Added DiffLines:

* Mandark's dream at the beginning of the sequel episode, "Mandarker". He wakes up in the exact same position Dexter was in the last episode, sobbing helpless in his bed with his beloved lab and creations taken from him. While it is pretty much LaserGuidedKarma, he manages to play it off as genuinely pitiful.

* Though Koosie gets to return, his limelight episode afterwards isn't exactly joyous. Once again his annoying characterisation is Deconstructed, we find out everyone in his hometown thinks he's as irritating as Dexter originally did, either telling him to get lost or ''beating him up on sight''. Koosie lies to Dee Dee that he's their beloved king, though when Dee Dee enters the world and his unpopularity reaches boiling point, he sadly confesses to Dee Dee he's a fraud. Thankfully the civilians undergo a HeelRealisation on sight.

** The fact that Koosie is loud, obtrusive, and annoying, force-feeding Dexter food he doesn't like and callously destroying his work. If you find him charming, the end is a tearjerker. If you hate him and, like Dexter, spend the episode wishing he'd leave forever, the end is pretty much tailored to making you feel guilty. No one gets a free pass on this one. [[spoiler: Sure Koosie comes back a few episodes later, but still the transition is jarring.]]

** And on top of that, it's also part HarsherInHindsight, and part DownerEnding due to Koosie's voice actor Creator/DomDeLuise passing away.

* The ending to "Way of the Dee Dee" with Dexter solemnly repairing his destroyed lab (that he wrecked ''himself''), as Dee Dee runs off in tears.
