* TearJerker: In ''A Cure For The Daltons'', the psychatrist's treatment actually works on Averell, who begins to regret his life of crime and his underlying good nature shines through. At one point, he actually breaks down sobbing after he steals thread from a store (the psychiatrist had gotten him interested in needlepoint).
--> '''Averell''': I know it's bad to steal, but I couldnt help myself! [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Go ahead and eat without me, I'm not hungry...]]
** In the opening, Senator Beuregard is violently opposed to the idea of rehabilitating criminals, and it's all but stated he's like that because of is abusive father.

** The dream sequences from ''The Bride of Lucky Luke'', Luke is having CountingSheep dreams after being roped into helping a wagon train of single woman across half the frontier to a town of single men. The sheeps heads suddenly turn into the womens, leading to a CatapultNightmare for poor Luke. It's repeated later in the story when he's forced to stay in the town to chaperone one of the women, an Irish girl named Jenny, who's fiancee got himself jailed for several months after trashing the saloon in celebration of his marriage. This time it's just Jenny's face, but equally unsettling.

* ShipTease: With actress ''Sarah Bernhardt'' if you can belive it. After working as a bodyguard for her on her first tour of the U.S, she gives him a personal autographed photo with the following message written on it: ''To Lucky Luke, who's only lonesome because he chooses to be''.

** One bizarre short story revolves around Luke looking for a man who has apparently stolen Jolly Jumper, with the theft having taken place over a year ago. His only clue is a pants button the thief left behind, but after finding a man wearing said pants it turns out they were part of a ChainOfDeals, and when Luke finally tracks down the man who sold them, it turns out he got them from the body of a man who was hanged for selling '''horsemeat!!''' Luke faints dead out of shock. [[spoiler: Thankfully, it was AllJustADream]]
** The Daltons coming within seconds of getting hanged when their sentences are changed to execution. It's especially disturbing how the whole town treats it like a public event, complete with little kids asking to be held up so they can watch (which is completely historically accurate by the way).

* SeasonalRot: When Morris died and the series was written by comedian Laurent Gerra. It's not unreadably bad, but it's very noticable that it's no longer made by Morris. The thinly-veiled celebrity and politician parodies dont help.

** The Daltons sometimes became even more popular than Luke. In fact, in the [=XilamAnimation=] produced series ''Les Dalton'', Lucky Luke [[TheGhost doesn't even appear]], and the focus is on the Daltons as they try to escape from prison.

** Most prominently, the GameOver screen, where you first see someone pointing a Gun at Lucky Luke's back (a Continue Screen available [[EasyModeMockery only in Sheriff mode]]) and then [[GoryDiscretionShot shifts]] to Barnaby the [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals same-as-always]] undertaker as he holds his hands in cynical delight, with a poster reading Game Over (in typical "western" font). Can easily become High Octane for the most sensitive.

* TearJerker: Despite the original source material and any other adaptations thereof is far from being a treasure trove of emotions (given that it's a comedy, spaghetti western parody and all), there's something surprisingly poignant about [[{{Tomboy}} Cynthia's]] plight in the "The Daltons Cowboys" that makes you sympathize with her a bit as the episode goes on. Sam laments that [[ChristmasCake being in her thirties]], [[OldMaid she's not getting any younger]] but he still hopes that she find a husband. Upon meeting the Daltons, she [[LoveAtFirstSight immediately develops a crush on Averell]] then later becoming an AbhorrentAdmirer who made Averell so miserable, he begged for her to let him go back to be with his brothers. After having thought of being deceived (thanks to Joe's plan when he was disguised as Averell and having tricked her into opening her father's safe), she seeks vengeance on Averell during her rampage but Lucky Luke stops her just in time, and tells her that [[LoveMakesYouCrazy love has made a crazed fiend out of her]] to which she responded with tears. Her father says that it's her first love and acknowledges that it's always the worst. He reassures Luke that she'll get over it. Then cut to the ending -- once Luke takes the Daltons back to prison, Cynthia steals one last glance. She gives way to a whimper (possibly repenting), then goes back to fixing the farm's roof, more upset than ever. It's one of the few, if not only, truly {{bittersweet ending}}s.
** Judging from the situation Averell was put through, he was a total {{woobie}} from start to finish with Cynthia's relentless crush and Joe forcing him to stay with her good side for the sake of revealing the location of her father's money in order for them to steal it. His smile as Luke sends them away back to jail is the "sweet" part on the aforementioned bittersweet conclusion of the episode.

* VillainDecay: The Dalton Brothers have suffered quite a bit of it over the years. In ''Les Cousins Dalton'', their 1958 debute, they get the best of Lucky Luke, forcing him to service for a time. Within the story each brother is given different character traits. Joe is the mastermind, William is obsessed with guns and using everything on sight for target practice, Jack is a master of disguise. Averell is naive but also a superb boxer. In fact he fights Luke to a standstill. Luke only wins by using his cunning, not his fists. The two combatants agree to meet for a rematch and retreat to their own rooms for sleep. Only Luke manages to releases mosquitos in Averell's room. The following day, Luke is fresh after a good night's sleep, Averell has not managed to sleep at all. He can barely walk, much less fight. Since then, several stories portray them as incompetents.

* NightmareFuel:* In the movie Daisy Town the showdown between Luke and the Daltons starts of as rather sinister with ominous music playing, the Daltons ready to kill and the whole town pausing at whatever they were doing to listen to the sound of the approaching combatants.[[spoiler: And then the whole thing ventures to purely comedic NightmareRetardant thanks to Lucky Luke's plan.]]
