** Star, feeling guilty that her ancestors robbed Eclipsa of her birthright and [[CreateYourOwnVillain ultimately]] [[ShootTheDog forced her]] [[OffingTheOffspring to kill her own daughter]], lets Eclipsa keep the wand and become queen again. Once she sees Meteora was actually just reduced to infancy, Star feels less guilty and realizes she gave enormous magical and political power to [[WildCard a very morally dubious person]]--which is especially worrying once Glossaryck explains Eclipsa is about to reunite with her monster husband.

* FaceDeathWithDignity: At first, it looked as if Marco was going to pull a YouShallNotPass to Meteora, so that Tom can escape, Marco decides to accept his fate with no resistance. Of course, Tom ''still'' won't allow it and decides to [[TakingTheBullet Take The Bullet]]. But, since that didn't work for Meteora, Marco still loses his soul anyways.

* IronicEcho: Again Eclipsa replies to one of Star's questions with the worlds 'what I had to'. Only before it was an admission of her own selfishness in doing what she had to for herself, it's now about her killing her daughter (or so she believed) to save Star and Mewni, an act which clearly devastates her.

** Eclipsa wanted to save her daughter, as any mother would. When she realizes that Meteora will destroy all of Mewni as well as its inhabitants, Eclipsa takes down her daughter before she can do more harm. She's not happy about it. Though one could debate whether Eclipsa did it for the kingdom itself or just Star's sake.

* SadisticChoice: Eclipsa ends up in one: her adopted granddaughter and biological daughter are in a battle to the death and Meteora is too far gone to ever listen to reason. Eclipsa can either let Meteora live and kill Star, or kill Meteora to save not just Star's life, but the people of Mewni. Eclipsa ultimately chooses saving Star.

* KarmicJackpot: Eclipsa faces off against her daughter and defeats her to save Star and stop her reign of terror. For this, Star gives her the wand back, Meteora is regressed into an infant again and she gets a chance to [[RaiseHimRightThisTime give her a better childhood]], and she and her daughter are free to reunite with Globgor, her monster husband.

** The only reason Star and Moon are not still trapped in the Magic Realm is because the Firstborn teleported them away because they don't belong there.
