* Despite being treated as a joke villain (like everyone else) what happened to Doctor Two-Brains is pretty sad. An intellectual NiceGuy driven to evil and insanity by placing something on his head, voiced by Creator/TomKenny? Two-Brains is basically a science-y [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Ice King]] on a show with a younger target audience.
* Violet [[spoiler:finds out her best friend Becky is [=WordGirl=],]] and felt betrayed for being lied to. She tells Becky she's not sure if they'll be friends anymore, making Becky cry.
[[folder: The Rise of Miss Power ]]
* This happens in "[[BigDamnMovie The Rise of Miss Power]]" when WordGirl/Becky Botsford insulted her sidekick Captain Huggyface/Bob. Though she later apologizes to him, this still counts as a TearJerker.
** [=WordGirl=] is [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beaten]] by Miss Power, and is given TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, and is called weak, and even has her star insignia removed.
** Earlier it hurt a lot to see [=WordGirl=] mocking Tobey who is often somewhat of an FriendlyEnemy and reducing him to an inability to move out of despair and a few others. Not to mention the Butcher's frantic and confused pleading to know where [=WordGirl=] is when Miss Power is taunting him, saying that [=WordGirl=] isn't mean like Miss Power.
