** 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''.

* 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 you get the only black character in the entire game stuck in what is basically debt slavery, as a "dancing monkey". 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.

* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

** [[https://youtu.be/yyZs1ztVGMc The main menu theme]] of ''Deponia Doomsday'' takes the familiar narrator song instrumental and remixes it in an instrumental style reminiscent of Music/TwoStepsFromHell. It feels just as epic as this would imply.

** [spoiler:''Deponia Doomsday'' actually depicts the results of Elysium crashing back down onto Deponia, with at least some casualties among the Elysians, though it does not seem to result in heavy damage to Deponia itself, with a coastal settlement overlooking the crash site surviving seemingly intact, and Goal surviving the impact.]]
