* In the small arc where Death brings Mercedes home, he has to carry he her there, and his "nephew" ''Le Petite Mort'' tells him that he will be needed in a few minutes. However, it turns out that [[spoiler:Mercedes' boyfriend Robert was waiting for her]], causing lil' Death to apologize after seeing big Death in shock. This could be taken to mean that he will be needed for [[spoiler:Mercedes and Robert]], except that when lil' Death was introduced, the author explains that ''le petite mort'' also means large swings in emotion, like shock.
