** His classic story ''ComicBook/BatmanTheKillingJoke'' is one for the Batman franchise. Joker shoots Barbara Gordon in the spine, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down, and since she isn't able to fight crime as Batgirl anymore she goes on to be MissionControl for the Batman family and the Justice League. Joker also gets a tragic backstory that he hints may be fabricated, making him even more mysterious than he was before.



** Chapter 9 reveals the backstory of Ken and how he was [[spoiler:psychologically abused in his childhood.]]

* Many of the ''SonicTheComic'' {{Wham Episode}}s involved [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Super Sonic]], like when he separated from Sonic or when he got amnesia. Some {{Wham Episode}}s unrelated to him were Knuckles being Really700YearsOld or the early reveal that Sonic "created" Robotnik.

* ''{{Doonesbury}}'' is known for throwing emotional curveballs every now and again. Among the most memorable were Dick Davenport's death-by-heart-attack (in the middle of bird-watching, with the Wham panel suggesting that he got the picture he was looking for) and [[BunnyEarsLawyer original cast member BD]] losing his trademark helmet (and his left leg) after getting hit by an insurgent IED.
