** After a season most agree marked somewhat of a slump in the show's pacing and quality, Jack grows a ''literal'' BeardOfSorrow in ''Through The Looking Glass'', signaling a return to full form for the show's last three seasons.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** The clicking noise of the Monster when its travelling, just hearing it leads to so many an OhCrap moment from the Losties when they realise its near.
** The ominous, rumbling ''whoosh'' sound during the transitions between flashbacks/flashforwards and present day.
*** Even better is the sound effect for the flash-sideways transitions: a distorted, higher-pitched, stuttering version of the normal whoosh.

** In 2016, Emilie de Ravin was actually pregnant, [[https://www.instagram.com/p/BCEdZVmoq12/ leading many of her fans to note that was a familiar sight]] (only the cries of "Aaron" came short, given her baby turned out to be a girl).

** Anthony Cooper from the first three seasons was the [[ArchnemesisDad father]] of John Locke, whom he sired with a teenager half his age, and was a [[{{Conman}} notorious conman]] who formerly earned his money by having affairs with married women, scamming them out of their money, then ditching them once he had what he wanted. Flashbacks reveal that he was the man who scammed Sawyer's parents, resulting in Sawyer's father murdering his wife then committing suicide, [[{{Jerkass}} something he's completely unapologetic about when he meets Sawyer as an adult.]] When he finally meets his son, John Locke, whom he had neglected before, [[BitchInSheepsClothing he comes off as a kindly man and the father Locke has always wanted.]] In reality, [[BaitTheDog it's just another scam.]] Cooper's kidneys are failing and the nice guy act was just a ruse to get Locke to donate a kidney to him, after which he coldly dumps his son, telling him he wants nothing to do with him. Later on, Locke is approached by a man named Peter Talbot, the son of a wealthy woman that Cooper is planning to marry for her money. When Talbot expresses a desire to stop the wedding to protect his mother, he later ends up mysteriously murdered. When Locke confronts his father on killing Talbot, his father responds by [[OffingTheOffspring attempting to kill Locke himself]], throwing him out of an eight-story-window and paralyzing him.
** [[SociopathicSoldier Martin Keamy]] from season 4 works for [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Charles Widmore]], who sent [[PsychoForHire Keamy and his mercenary team]] to attack the island, capture Benjamin Linus, and kill anybody else. Keamy, despite being informed that [[WouldHurtAChild a baby is among the innocents there]], wages an all-out assault on the Barracks where Linus is held up; at least three survivors are killed before he arrives in front of Ben's house. There he brings out the 16-year-old Alex, Ben's foster daughter, and threatens to kill her if Ben doesn't leave the house by the time Keamy finishes his countdown. When Ben tries to resist Keamy's threats and negotiate instead, [[KickTheDog Keamy forgoes the rest of the countdown and coldly shoots the young girl in the head while her father watches]]. Keamy kills and threatens to kill several other innocent people (including one by [[SlashedThroat slashing his throat]]), and also shows no emotion when he [[AccidentalMurder inadvertently kills]] his own [[UndyingLoyalty loyal]] [[TheDragon dragon]] Omar by kicking an active grenade that landed at his own feet over in Omar's direction. Upon being gravely wounded by Ben, Keamy reveals he has [[DeadManSwitch a bomb on the freighter he arrived on that's rigged to go off in the event of his death]], [[TakingYouWithMe just so he can kill as many people as possible when he goes out]]. The [[AxCrazy psychopathic]] Keamy had the distinction of being one of the few villains in the series [[{{Sadist}} who just enjoyed killing people]].

** The source from "Across the Sea" looks like a bad ''photoshop''.



** Locke. Name a time in his life. Go on, any time. If he isn't miserable, he's [[HopeSpot finally found something great that makes him happy.]] It won't last. It won't end well.[[FromBadToWorse And it just keeps getting worse.]]

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: By the same coin, Jacob can come across as this. When discussing the episode as part of the web series "Totally Lost", [[WordOfGod Mark Pellegrino basically admits that Jacob knew sending his brother into the cave would have dire ramifications for his brother's well-being. But he did not care, as he wanted revenge for the death of their mother and since he could not kill him (and had been given vague warning that going into the cave would have dire consequences from his mom), he chose the next best thing to harm his brother and permanently trap him on the island.]]

** Hurley. The butt of many of Sawyer's fat jokes, has incredibly bad luck and possible mental instability. But the worst times were during season 2 when [[spoiler: Libby, the only girl on island to reciprocate love toward him, is shot by Micheal and euthanized by being given heroin.]] Again, in Season 3 [[spoiler: best friend Charlie dies]] which makes the Season 4 opener much more bittersweet when he canonballs. Also the entire Season 4 opener flash-forwards.
** {{Flashback}}s to [[spoiler: Ben]]'s childhood deserve special mention: [[spoiler: [[DeathByChildbirth a dead mother]], an abusive alcoholic father,]] and a lonely childhood all add up to a pretty sad life. It makes [[MagnificentBastard what he becomes]] all the more awesome, (if still kind of creepy). His emotional speech to [[spoiler: Jacob]] asking "What about ''me''?" helps- only to be replied with "What ''about'' you?" What Locke says about how his years of devoted service were rewarded with him getting cancer, having to watch his daughter murdered, and then being exiled from the island. He gets beat up a lot on the show, too, to the point where you can't help but feel sorry for him.
** Daniel Faraday is probably one of the woobiest characters on the show, especially when [[spoiler: [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Charlotte dies in his arms]]]], and later on when he gets [[spoiler: shot by his own mother]].
** Charlie Pace has his moments too. Thankfully, he also has some moments of real lightness and joy, which either balance it out or make it worse.
%%** Richard.
** The Man in Black was pretty Woobie before he got all smoke-ified. [[spoiler: His mom landed on the island and gave birth to him and his brother Jacob. Mom is then promptly killed by a woman on the island, who takes [=MiB=] and Jacob and raises them
as her own children, never telling them about their real mother, so they could take her place as protectors of the island. Then [=MiB=] gets a child.vision of his birth mother and tries to get his brother to run away with him to a tribe of men on the other side of the island, and Jacob refuses after beating the crap out of him. So [=MiB=] runs away and only sees his brother every once in a while for the next thirty years. In that time he's been building a way to get off the damn island, which is all he's ever really wanted. Fake!Mom shows up and, after luring him into a false sense of security by hugging him and telling him she's sorry, knocks him out, destroys his machine, and kills every single one of the people he lived with for the past thirty years. He finds his Fake!Mom and kills her in a fit of revenge, immediately regrets it, and then Jacob finds him and beats him up (again) and drags him through the forest to the heart of the island. Jacob tosses him in, dooming him to a fate worse than death. All this because the poor kid just wanted to go home.]]

* NarmCharm: One would argue that Michael's repeated shoutings of "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALT!", given their justification, come off less narmful than anybody else in the same situation.
** Granted his son has gone missing at the time, but it's the ten thousand other "WAAAAAALT!" moments throughout the first season, when Walt is only ten feet away is the reason it comes across as so narmful. There is being a PapaWolf and there is being simply ''annoying''.
