* Jeff hearing an explosion and PBG screaming and suddenly going silent, and he realizes that [[InTheEndYouAreOnYourOwn he is on his own]] [[HistoryRepeats again]]. His reaction to that realization is to yell, "[[MadnessMantra It's not a repeat! It's not a repeat!]]"

Added DiffLines:

* Episode 19 has Billy/Buddy die to a Creeper, complete with a gravestone shot, demoralizing Jeff. Then, despite all his efforts and extensive preparation, Jeff dies when the Ender Dragon rams him off the tower, complete with slow-motion to ''Chariots of Fire'' and a flashback about ladders potentially being dangerous. To rub salt in the wounds, the last thing seen in the series is Waffle waiting at home for Luke.

* When PBG and Jeff return home and see the dogs Billy and Waffle, Waffle is [[IWillWaitForYou waiting for Luke]] and won't respond to their commands (in a manner that PBG compares to the infamous "Jurassic Bark" episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', and flashbacks are played of Luke naming Waffle and telling him to sit. They then decide to take Billy along for the adventure and vow that he has to make it home to cheer up Waffle, becoming very protective of him.

As Jeff [[SayMyName screams his name]], believing that he killed him, the video cuts to an edited version of [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou Mufasa's death]], with Jeff's chibi avatar superimposed on Simba's face.

* On his search for the stronghold, Jeff finds a group of wolves he befriends with all of the bones he got from fighting skeletons. However, most of them eventually die off. Several are killed from lava during Jeff's journey through the stronghold for the End Portal. The couple wolves he does manage to bring with him to the End predictably get killed by the Ender Dragon. Even more sad considering that they ere his only companions after losing the rest of his party.

* Barry's death in episode 7. After falling into a spiderweb, he gets poisoned and gets left with half a heart, with a Cave Spider spawner next to him and a Cave Spider immediately behind the spawner. He's left immobilized by the web, and nearly dead. With a final HeroicSacrifice, he breaks the spawner, and though he attempts to kill the spider after, he ultimately gets attacked and dies. What makes it even more tragic is that by looking at his screen, he's frantically clicking, trying to bat the spider away, even though it's more efficient to do solid swipes. He's panicking the entire time, trying to stay alive.

* In episode 13, the remaining survivors split into two groups, one of them being Ray, Jeff, and Dean. Partway through the episode, the group's making a new path in the fortress while looking for the Nether Wart, when Ray accidentally unearths some of the lava, the lava engulfs Dean, and he burns to death. Worse yet, because of the angle of the lava [[note]]Dean was boxed in a corner when the leak first started, and was ultimately trapped dead centre of a pool of lava several blocks wide that surrounded him from all sides[[/note]], Ray and Jeff can do nothing but look on as he dies, try as they might. Doubly painful for Ray, as he was the one who opened up the pocket of lava. His panicked apologies as Dean burns alive says enough.

* In general, [=SpaceHamster=]]] went through ''way'' too much in this particular Hardcore. He started off with six of his friends to find the Elytra, and poor Jeff was either present or involved with everyone's deaths. During Barry's death, he himself was poisoned so much that he couldn't help him from assisting him, and Dean calls him out for it. After Jeff chickened out of getting the [[ItMakesSenseInContext danger water]], [=ProJared=] dies in lava, and Dean and Ray started blaming him for his death. When the group split up in the Nether, he watched Dean and [=McJones=] die in lava and by fire respectively, unable to do anything. And last, but certainly not least, when [=PBG=] couldn't have been any closer, he watched the last group member be killed, leaving him all by himself. And unlike most other hardcores, every death shakes up the group's morale to a noticeable degree. Now, he's the only one to bear that weight all the way through.

* The season finale starts with a lengthy shot of the graveyard, stopping on each grave and showing a slow, somber panning shot (in third-person) of the areas where each of the fallen party members died, complete with various dialogue from that person over the course of the series. Special mention must be given to the shots of the mineshaft where Barry died, the fortress passage where Ray withered away (made worse by a single dropped red flower that was left while the survivors salvaged what they could from his body, which hadn't despawned yet), and the crater caused by the blast that took PBG's life.** The series ends with Jeff dying and an extremely sad shot of everyone's graves as his own (made of gold) is added.
