** Everyone knows how much love a dog has for their owner. Now imagine how much sadness that Max would feel seeing Chuck go away and not understanding why when he doesn't come back.

** Look at it from the perspective of the old man and his grandson who saved Raleigh. They just watched a Jaeger, the pinnacle of human engineering, a walking god-like warrior just stumble and fall to pieces before them, and out of the Jaeger [[spoiler: walks a single wounded, delirious pilot, when everyone knows that pilots are paired]]. When the old man falls to his knees beside Raleigh, you can see how horrified and crushed he is just by the implications of Gypsy Danger falling dead in front of him. The Jaegers ''aren't invincible''.

** Perhaps even worse on Stacker's end. He's essentially taking his closest friend's son to an [[spoiler: inevitable death]]. Considering how close and long Stacker and Herc have worked together, it's very likely that Stacker has known Chuck since he was a little boy, or at least a young teenager. Just imagine taking someone who you've mentored since they still had ''baby teeth'' into such a terrible situation.

Spoiler.
* When Pentecost reveals he'll be Chuck's copilot, he and Mako have a quick heart to heart about her protecting him. The look on her face is heartbreaking, since she already lost one father, and she's about to lose another.

Spelling, grammar.
* The Demise of [[spoiler:Cherno]]. While [[spoiler: both Typhoon and Striker's pilots went quick]] the [[spoiler: Kaidonovsky's]] got to enjoy a rasputinian death until the kaiju found the cockpit. The Hope spot didn't help.

* Very briefly, among the scattering of images/memories that show up when [[spoiler:[[GeniusCripple Gottlieb]] and Newton]] drift together interspersed with the shots of the kaiju is... a young boy crying and hugging his knees. Judging from the clothes and setting, it's [[spoiler:a very young Gottlieb. What happened to him?]]

* The novelization, and likely cut scenes, show why Chuck has a chip on his shoulder towards his father. Hercules could only guess as to where his wife and son were with only an hour before the fourth Kaiju, Scissure, would be nuked. Herc picked his son to save and would never know if his wife died by the kaiju or nuke. Every time father and son drift Herc knows his son begrudges him but they still love each other. Despite any decent parent preferring their child be saved instead of them, Chuck still has unresolved anger. Drifting somehow makes it better and worse. ** [[spoiler: And then, in spite of everything, Chuck ends up being killed by a kaiju, anyway.]]

** Chuck's whole life in general. He's been raised since early childhood to be the perfect Jaeger pilot, has an extremely strained relationship with his father, displays many of the unhealthy habits and emotional issues that are commonly attributed to [[ChildSoldier Child Soldiers]], and [[spoiler:willingly sacrifices himself without a second thought to his own future]]. In the books, Chuck's greatest wish was to be able to live his own life and make decisions for himself, instead of always having the fate of humanity pressing down on him. [[spoiler:He never gets to experience this.]]
