* As unlikely as it sounds. Krista, [[spoiler:rebuilt into an unwilling robot suicide bomber]], meets up with Calypso, who [[LukeIAmYourFather turns out to be her father]]. [[spoiler:After she tells him she's afraid the inevitable explosion might hurt despite her mechanical nature, he simply hugs her and closes his eyes as the two are engulfed in flames.]] Borders on TearJerker.
** It gets much worse in ''Head-On'', where Krista's spirit wishes that [[spoiler:the accident that gave Calypso motivation for his DealWithTheDevil never happens. The result? A brief, touching glimpse into Calypso's former life... before revealing that the accident, instead of killing her and her family, now put her in a 12-15+ year-long coma instead, [[MissingMom with the mother still nowhere to be seen]]. It seems that Calypso couldn't grant a decent wish even if he ''wanted to''... [[TearJerker *sniff sniff* ]]]]
*** It's a even more heart-wrenching when you consider that Calypso's incomplete sentences before she asked the wrong wish implied that [[spoiler:Krista was in a coma all along and everything he did was just in hopes she would wish to come back to life, much like Roadkill in TM 2.]]
* In the first game, Thumper's ending. [[spoiler:The driver wishes for his South Central neighborhood to be free of violence and hate. Calypso claims that he grants it, but the driver's suspicious. Calypso tells him to go home and see, so he does, and he finds... "Calypso was not lying."]] It seems that he changed the world so that the violence in his neighborhood never existed to begin with. Although, there's [[EverybodyDies more than]] [[TearJerker one way]] [[FridgeHorror to interpret]] even that one: [[spoiler: after all, [[LiteralGenie Calypso may have indeed granted the wish, by killing off all the gang members]].]]
** In the "Lost Ending" version, the driver's wish was [[spoiler:to [[SaveThePrincess save his girlfriend]], who had been kidnapped by his former boss. When Calypso offered the driver [[WhatYouAreInTheDark the opportunity to gun down his former boss, he refused]], and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere simply took his girlfriend away]]. After the driver, his co-pilot, and his girl left, Calypso killed the driver's former boss himself.]]
* Mortimer's ending in "Head-On" counts. [[spoiler: Instead of wishing for revenge on the people who woke him from his slumber, he instead just wishes to go back to sleep. Calypso grants his wish, and helps him fall asleep in his coffin with a teddy bear and a story:]]
-->[[spoiler:Calypso: Once upon a time, there was a competition called Twisted Metal. There was a very brave driver called Mortimer, who drove the fearsome vehicle Shadow. Becoming the Champion of the tournament, Mortimer lived happily ever after. The end.]]
* In a game as DarkerAndEdgier as ''VideoGame/TwistedMetalBlack'', it'd be hard to find even [[HopeSpot one remotely decent moment]] [[YankTheDogsChain that isn't cruelly subverted moments later]]. However, ''[[{{Goth}} Raven]]'' [[EmoTeen of all people]], gets a Heartwarming moment that isn't used just to set up a TearJerker. To be fair, the ending does start off pretty dark, [[spoiler: where Raven gets revenge on the two {{JerkJock}}s who [[AccidentalMurder accidentally drowned Kelly]] by using two {{VoodooDoll}}s to [[EyeScream gouge their eyes out]], and [[HereWeGoAgain held on to the dolls]] to [[SelfMadeOrphan presumably do the same to her parents]]]]. And yet, at the end of the video, [[DueToTheDead she reminisced on Kelly]], claiming how she felt like [[SpiritAdvisor Kelly was watching over her and protecting her]]. Especially poignant considering some of Raven's lines in her story mode hinted that [[SuicideByCop she wanted to have been killed in the contest]], [[DrivenToSuicide if she didn't outright kill herself]], [[TogetherInDeath just so she and Kelly could be together again after she died]].
--> '''Raven:''' "[[AnyoneCanDie People may come and go; they live and they die]]. [[UndyingLoyalty But a true friend is forever]]."
** [[spoiler: It actually gets better in Raven's ''Lost'' profile: where everybody else in the game had their endings from ''Black'' go FromBadToWorse (by either [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope becoming bloodthirsty murderers that terrorized innocent people]], [[YankTheDogsChain or having their wishes bite them right in the ass]]), [[AHeroToHisHometown Raven had become a hero to the people of Midtown]], [[DarkIsNotEvil using her voodoo dolls and the spirits in her hearse to protect the innocent]], [[PayEvilUntoEvil and drive out the maniacs and murderers that plagued the city]].]]
