* While [[Jerkass Rufus]] has never been the most heroic person imaginable, two things he did in the final part of the third game take the cake: his treatment of the three kids and what he did to June and Goon (see above).

* CrossesTheLineTwice / UnfortunateImplications: It is difficult to tell how intentional this was on Daedalic's part, especially since ''Goodbye Deponia'' has several CrossesTheLineTwice moments, but at one point Rufus sells the only black character (a young woman) in the entire game in what is basically debt slavery, as a "dancing monkey" to a man who forces her to wear a revealing outfit. According to the game's writer, this was meant as an IntendedAudienceReaction to show how little Rufus takes into account what happens to others while he's trying to achieve his own personal goals due to his narrow minded nature, and the audience is meant to be uncomfortable at the fact Rufus' plans aren't always completely heroic like those of other adventure games protagonists. Other players have also pointed out that making the aforementioned black character white probably wouldn't have made the scene any less uncomfortable.

* JerkassWoobie: Toni. Sure, she's ill tempered, but what do you expect from someone who has had to deal with Rufus's antics for so long? She gets help from a therapist in ''Goodbye Deponia'', but Rufus ruins it by [[spoiler: causing her to snap after seeing that there are more than one Rufus running about.]] She gets better, though.

* MoralEventHorizon: In the third game, [[spoiler: Seagull]] proves himself a completely irredeemable bastard by [[spoiler: lethally shooting Green Rufus. His own ''son'' (well, one of the three copies of his son.) He would've finished the job and killed Red Rufus as well, if Blue Rufus hadn't dropped out of the sky at that moment and landed on him, killing both Seagull and himself.]]

* ThatOnePuzzle: The "knocking" puzzle in ''Chaos''. Rufus has to remember a secret code knock, but keeps getting distracted by the catchy music that plays in the marketplace, making him forget the knock. So what do you do to solve this puzzle? Craft some earplugs for Rufus? Find a way to destroy the speakers? Nope! You [[spoiler: go into the game's settings and turn the background music off.]] Note that you are never called on to do anything even remotely like this at any other point in the series, making this a frequent sticking point for players trying to do a no-guide playthrough.
* WhamShot: The first game ends with one of these, revealing that [[spoiler:Rufus wound up with the backup copy of Goal's brain implant-- which means the one that wound up in Goal is the one with her memories intact.]]

playthrough. The only thing can be somewhat seen as a hint is a completely optional, one-time-only dialogue with the pharmacist, where he says "That rhythmic background music drowns out everything" -- but, even if that line is slightly more direct, it's still a long shot, and you must remember that line when the puzzle comes.

* TheWoobie: Poor Bozo. He gets dragged into problems by Rufus, who makes fun of him all the time, calls him a pirate despite his insistence otherwise, makes free use of his ship, destroys his things, and eventually [[spoiler: destroys his ship]]. And Bozo is too nice to do anything about it. Plus his girlfriend is violent and his family are kind of jerks. One can't help but cheer for him when he finally snaps at Rufus in ''Goodbye''.

** Rufus willingly leaves four young children (including an infant Goal) alone in the pipe forest of the sewers... unknowing to him, he places them in the mouth of a giant, child-eating slime monster, wraps them in burrito wraps to keep them warm and douses them in gravy. The monster, who had decided to become vegetarian, can barely contain itself from eating them, and eventually spits them out... but when Rufus returns, two of the children are missing and ''are never seen again''. Unfazed, Rufus leaves the little girl there, alone. ''Again''.

* EndingAversion: Many players declared the ending of ''Goodbye Deponia'' enough to make the entire trilogy up to that point almost not worth playing, if '''this''' is the conclusion it all led to.

** In ''Deponia Doomsday'', in order to reach Porta Rustica in time, Rufus, Goal and [=McChronicle=] have to take a boat, but the owner only allows passage if Rufus presents a picture that proves he and Goal are in love with each other. Rufus goes off on yet another of his [[ZanyScheme Zany Schemes]], intending to take a picture with a fake Goal, but just as he completes it, he's interrupted by Goal herself, who reacts with surprised disapproval and tells him she'd [[CuttingTheKnot convinced the owner to let them pass]]. In Porta Rustica, however, Goal drops a photograph that Rufus picks up... which depicts Goal with a fake Rufus, meaning that Goal had successfully undertaken ''the exact same Zany Scheme'' while Rufus prepared for his. When Rufus is surprised by this, Goal gets [[NotSoDifferent a mellow smile on her face]].
