    The Animated Series 
Quest Of The Skeleton Warrior

The Treasure Of Tardos
  • The moment where we find out that Dungeon Master is Venger's dad and is still depressed over losing him is surprisingly effective.

The Last Illusion

The Dragon's Graveyard
  • Dungeon Master's response to the kids' rage: calm, quiet... defeated. Even without knowing his relationship to Venger, when he says "Is that all? May I go now?" you know he's lost all hope.

Child Of The Stargazer
  • Diana and Kosar. Just as sad as Presto and Varla... and worse, because they don't get their happy ending. Even the Dungeon Master is sad at that.
