[[BrokenBase Depending who you ask,]] some of the later episodes have either been able to subvert some of these complaints, have still retained them or have even managed give rise to new ones. The most-common complaints include:
** Her having too much StoryBreakerPower for a normal Unicorn [[note]]Pre-Alicorn Twilight Sparkle was still the Element of Magic, King Sombra ("The Crystal Empire") was actually an EldritchAbomination, and Trixie Lulamoon ("Magic Duel") and Rarity ("Inspiration Manifestation") were wielding [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts of Doom]]; Starlight's only given excuse was "potential."[[/note]].
** Her FreudianExcuse being too rushed and disproportionate to her crimes.
** The fact that she is ''way'' too EasilyForgiven after everything was said and done (even by the show's standards).
** The amount of [[SpotlightStealingSquad story focus]] she seems to get over the main cast, especially in Premiers/Finales.
** [[CharacterShilling the narrative shilling]] Starlight by having other characters either praise her too easily or by making her look good at the expense of making other characters look worse by giving them the JerkassBall or by [[TheWorfEffect weakening]] them.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Though it's not really a single character, "AsHimself" is something of a taboo phrase in ''Simpsons'' fandom. Most of the time, especially after Season 10, any guest star to play themselves mostly shows up with little reason, acts cool and popular, and isn't really given anything funny to say. Hence, the star comes off as less there to service the plot, and more as a means of mooching off their popularity. Infamous examples include the stage magicians in "The Great Simpsina" and Music/LadyGaga in "Lisa Goes Gaga." The latter in particular received no small amount of hatred from the fanbase for being an effective CanonSue, whose spotlight episode was massively-promoted and played very heavily on her public image without saying anything particularly new or interesting about it. Many contrasted her performance to that of Music/MichaelJackson, who guest-starred as a fat white bricklayer living in a mental ward and received a good amount of acclaim for his part.
