* DudeNotFunny: See DarkerAndEdgier. In particular, killing the baby dolphins to make cat food can cause this reaction, as can feeding little orphan children to a monster. ** The "organ grinder monkey" portion in ''Goodbye Deponia'', so much so that it poisoned the rest of the game for many players. ** Going by the Steam reviews, the sexism isn't as funny as the writers apparently think, but since there's a lot of it, it's up to the player to decide which gag is the one that crosses the line.

* 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.]]

* 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. ** Spetial mention must also go to Goon. Rufus pretty much ruins his life through the course of the second and third game, from forcing him to eat a shoe to Top suggestions for separating him from his girlfriend and putting him in a dead end job at a burrito stand. One can only hope things get better for him, [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse since the game series ends without resolving any of his problems.]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: A few examples: ** Toni seems to have somewhat of a following, though most of it may come down to [[BestknownForTheFanService a certain shower scene.]] ** [[CloudCuckooLander Donna]], primarily due to her strange mannerisms, non sequiturs and her tendency to spew out [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment strangely creative torture methods out of nowhere.]] Expect to get a good chuckle out of her every time she pops up. ** For the brief moments we see of him, Cowboy Dodo sure does deliver with his [[EarWorm catchy music]] and humorous confrontation wit our protagonist.

** [[spoiler: Argus as well, since we also never find out what happened to him either. Considering his Organon troops are now on Deponia, one can only assume that he will come back somehow and take advantage of that.]]

* HesJustHiding: [[spoiler: Due to the ambiguous nature of the ending of ''Goodbye Deponia'', many fans are standing by this for Rufus. We never see him die exactly, and the possibility of having him cloned again is somewhat likely. The outcry for the ending was so divisive that [[WordOfGod the creators]] had to reinsure that is totally out there that Rufus could be alive in some form or another, though they want it to be up to the viewers to decide.]] ** [[spoiler: Argus as well, since we also never find out what happened to him either.

* 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. ** Rufus, himself. He is selfish, narcissistic, rude and constantly causes pain and misfortune to himself and those around him, but at the same time suffers from the hatred and isolation from his fellow Deponians because of it, not to mention [[spoiler:[[DisappearedDad his father issues]]]], causing him much insecurities about his purpose on Deponia in the first place.

* 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.]] ** [[spoiler: Argus]] in the ending. [[spoiler: He backstabs Rufus and Cletus at a crucial moment, letting Cletus seemingly jump to his death and planning to leave Rufus for dead behind a spinning rotor for not joining him in his plan to take over Elysium. He also immediately gets his when Cletus appears alive and throws hims into the rotor. He is presumably killed once the jammed rotor starts up again.]]

** It was worse before fans finally got the writer to concede that [[spoiler: Rufus may have actually survived the fall]] and that neither outcome is actually indicated to be canon, asking the players to use their imagination to fill in the blanks. This alleviated the flack somewhat, as it allows an end that some folks initially saw as outright depressing to be seen as more of a RayOfHopeEnding and [[AndTheAdventureContinues a chance for the story to go on past the games' end.]] Some are still holding their breath for a ''Deponia 4'', though.
