* Kyouya's older sister, who is married, is pretty much forbidden to visit her family unless her husband is the one behind the visit. DeliberateValuesDissonance or not, this is heartwrenching, especially since she seems to be the only family member who cares about Kyouya as a person instead of whether or not he's useful ''and'' bothers to show it (as it's possible Kyouya's mother has similar feelings but is too afraid of her husband to say so).

* Meta example, but J. Michael Tatum's AlternateCharacterInterpretation on Kyoya. It makes so much sense...and it makes the poor guy feel like even more of a woobie than he already was.
-->'''J. Michael Tatum:''' I think Kyoya is [[OneTrueThreesome very much in love with Tamaki and with Haruhi]]. Hes very much in love with the both of them. And I think it matures to a point where [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy he would much prefer to see the both of them together than him with either one]]. Because [[ActOfTrueLove they make more sense together than he makes with anybody else]].


** I feel sorry for the girl, too, as she seems to be (at least, to me) the same girl who they first played the "Which one is Hikaru?" game with, and would seem to be a guest at the Host Club, as well. It seems she's in love with both twins, and doesn't know how to communicate it.

* I found Kaoru's metaphor about Tamaki keeping the Host Club as a family fairly heart-wrenching.
** Most of the times Kaoru brings up his Carriage/Pumpkin metaphor are pretty misty. Capped off in the final episode of the anime when [[spoiler: after racing the carriage Tamaki had rented for the festival to catch him on his way to the airport, the twins and Haruhi hit an obstacle and Hikaru ends up crashing into a pumpkin patch.]]
