Tear Jerker: Metalocalypse
can be brutally funny, just plain brutal, and sometimes, brutally sad.
- The whole premise of Dethdoubles, if one looks at it that way. In that episode, Dethklok hires a group of similar-looking decoys to protect them from dying, but they grow so attached to them that they refuse to let them go. They even offer to burn themselves after their decoys are injured by a volcanic eruption because they are afraid of losing the only friends they had. What makes this episode more heartbreaking is the fact that Dethklok is completely unaware that their decoys are Tribunal agents, which makes for potential Fridge Horror when you think about how lonely these guys must feel due to their celebrity status.

- Nathan apologizes to Pickles.
