* As one can probably guess by the title, ''Life Hurts'' is full of this trope. Despite the cute moments between Simba and Nala interspersed throughout, the main story focuses on Tayari, [[spoiler: the mother of the teenage lioness Scar raped and killed in the previous story.]] She drives Sarabi and Sarafina away when they try to help her, and [[spoiler: she ends up jumping from a cliff and killing herself.]] One can't help but think this story serves as the [[Main/VerySpecialEpisode Very Special Episode]] of the series.
