* Qui-Gon's death after the battle with Darth Maul.
** That he tells Obi-Wan, who he has a father/son relationship with, to train Ani when he obviously wants to say something different is another one. The way he gently brushes his tears away is heartbreaking.
* Before Anakin left Tatooine, he asked his mother if they would meet again. [[spoiler:Those who watched the following film know that they will, but under very painful circumstances.]]

* It really hurts to think how Anakin was such a [[UsedToBeASweetKid cute, caring, helpful kid]] before he turned into Vader.
