** Heck, imagine being the stagehand who accidentally killed him by pulling the lever, not the less because he is obviously a fan as well.


* Though Imelda is not a villain and is justifiably angry and hurt, she still did everything she could to make her husbands Héctor forgotten amongst the living, therefore pushing him close to the FinalDeath in the afterlife. Granted, Ernesto began the process and Imelda did seem [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone remorseful at the end]], but she did her share in pushing him closer to second death. Hell hath no fury like a WomanScorned indeed, and Imelda is at least mildly terrifying.

*** What makes this all the more terrifying, just as he was about to hand Miguel a petal with his blessings he says, "I hope you die very soon". Looking back later at that scene after Héctor finds out Ernesto not only stole his song but was also the one who ''poisoned'' him these words get even more chilling, it's very scary would've happen if Miguel accept Ernesto's blessing if Héctor never came and interrupted them.

** Icing on the cake: even they are shocked/surprised when they realize the full ramifications of this for Héctor. Ernesto seems surprised when he says "My friend... you are being forgotten..." (after all, if he had the LackOfEmpathy necessary to kill his friend, why would he have thought about what the family might do without Héctor?), and though Imelda says she wanted to forget her husband and wished Coco would forget the father who left them, it is with regret (like she never thought the family would go as far as never putting the name on the story of the runaway musician after she died and Coco took over as matriarch).

* The second Héctor finally learns his friend poisoned him, he instantly begins throttling Ernesto on the spot, his face contorted with anger ''[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness like never before]]''. True, it's his [[PapaWolf natural reaction]] to being denied one last chance to see his daughter, but it's still unnerving to see Héctor's face actually filled with [[BewareTheNiceOnes hatred]].

* In a way, through Ernesto's eyes, the audience of the Sunrise Spectacular turning on him. Itís never a comfortable sight to watch unanimous public rejection of ''that'' level, especially when you see the abject [[WhatTheHellHero disgust]], [[ThePowerOfHate hatred]], and rage in the faces of literal ''thousands'' of men and women as they glare and jeer at their former idol. The band conductor in particular is a special case; he responds to Ernestoís increasingly desperate attempts to get the orchestra going by snapping his baton in half in an understated display of [[TranquilFury Tranquil Fury]].

* Even after the reveal of Ernesto stealing Héctor's songs (and with Miguel's help, possibly succeeding with officially branding Ernesto a murderer in the Land of the Living), there will almost certainly still be people defending him/continue being his fans because they 'like his music' or 'that happened long ago' or 'let's not drag private matters into this'. As an example, defenders of Roman Polanski.

*** Even worse still, the novel "Coco: A Story of Music, Shoes, and Family" reveals that Ernesto and Héctor were ''childhood friends'' to the point where Héctor feels that Ernesto is like his brother, and cannot remember life without him in it. This means that Ernesto murdered the man he had grown up ''with no remorse whatsoever''. Talk about a sociopath.

''Coco'' tackles some very serious subject matters even for a Pixar film, in addition to touching on the importance of family and following your dreams and aspirations... it isn't a movie about the Day of the Dead for nothing...
