* Tropers/{{SteleResolve}}: The sixth volume of the {{Knights of the Old Republic}} comic series completely derailed the characters and the plot that had been building. Not only did it rush the ending and cobble together a half-assed BigBad with a lame backstory and even lamer motivation, it outright changed the deaths of some of the masters that had been predicted at the very beginning of the series. But the absolute worst moment, the true Dethroning Moment of Suck, was when Gryph explained to Quanilia that the CrowningMomentOfAwesome message that Zayne had sent to the masters at the end of the first story arc was, in fact, a complete fabrication, a feint intended to put them on guard and buy him some breathing room. Well done, writers. You turned the character development that finally [[TookALevelInBadass gave a level in badass]] to the Jedi Order's ButtMonkey into a complete sham.

** Tropers/{{TommyTiger}}: Removing my former entry for something worse: "Paperino e i Gamberi in Salmì". It seems OK, but the ending is not funny at all. It ends with Scrooge's brother Gedeon giving Huey, Dewey and Louie a parody of the "Pulitzer" prize. Then, he gives it to Donald because they're too young. Good so far. But the ''final'' panel shows the three running Donald out of town and saying "[[YoureNotMyFather You're not our uncle]]... you're a medal snatcher!" (that's right, three kids who are commonly portrayed as intelligent, caring persons resort to disowning their own uncle over '''a medal''' of all things) when he didn't steal it from them ([[SarcasmMode Because Donald being given a badge that was initially for them before Gedeon realized they're too young]] [[note]]He shouldn't have given them the Pulitzer stand-in to begin with because that would make this crapfest of an ending impossible to happen[[/note]] [[SarcasmMode is totally stealing it from them]]), [[OutOfCharacterMoment which is absolutely unexpected for the three]]. And ''[[NoEnding that's how it ends]]''. We're not shown what they wanted to do to him (even though it's very unlikely because they aren't monsters, ''[[FridgeHorror what would happen if they wanted to kill him?]]''), or if Donald [[KarmaHoudini got back at them]]. Now Donald Duck can be a jerk sometimes (all the characters can) but that one went beyond mean, especially since he gets completely treated like something a dog crapped out by the end for something he's one hundred percent innocent of. Even though I still won't hate them due to still being noble (''WesternAnimation/{{Ducktales}}'' comes to mind) and the rest of the comic being admittedly good, it still pisses me off a lot. Yes, they're kids and yes, that's what kids often do but we're talking about three characters who are often portrayed as intelligent and caring running an adult who, whilst frequently a jerk, has been shown to genuinely love and care for them on a vast multitude of occasions. Case in point: the [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments absolutely nice]] story where they complained to each other about Donald's many flaws only to suddenly realize that no matter if Donald is a big success or not, he still takes care of them, cooks for them, makes sure they're clothed and happy, and on the whole uses a lot more money on them than he does on himself, feel guilt and resolve to start appreciating their uncle a little more in the future. This and other moments of the three disapproving for Donald make them seem like ignorant at best and full-on {{Ungrateful Bastard}}s at worst.

* Tropers/AustinDR: I for one love ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'' but not for the reasons that you're most likely thinking. I love reading them because they're so [[SoBadItsGood unbelievably bad]]. They get their facts wrong, they have a {{Narm}} charm, and they're very hard to take seriously. However, the one Chick Tract that I absolutely loath is simply titled "Lisa." "Lisa" is about a married couple that were falling behind in hard times. The father of the titular character, Henry, couldn't find a job anywhere, and he was also an alcoholic. What Henry does next is simply [[MoralEventHorizon unforgivable]]. He molests his daughter, who looks about five years old by the way, and then he pimps her out and lets his neighbor have his way with her. Pretty much he's making his daughter into a prostitute so that he could get the money from her customers. Later on, Lisa develops herpes complex, and the doctor tells Henry about it. He says that she told him what her father had done to her, and instead of calling the police to arrest him, he instead tells him that {{Jesus}} could forgive him for essentially molesting his daughter if he repents. Henry does so, and his family is back in order. So, let me get this straight. We have a father who raped his own daughter, and shared her with the neighbors getting away with said raping and prostitution by just telling God that he was sorry for it without having to face the consequences. I'm sorry, that's not how real-life works! Sure, you can feel remorse for committing a crime in life, but you still have to pay up for it even if you're remorseful for it. And what are we supposed to learn from this tract? Is it [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop "Hey kids, it's okay for your parents to molest you, as long as they apologize for said sexual abuse."]] There's also the fact that Lisa still has that STD at the end of the tract, and if she ever marries anyone, she'll just transmit that to her partner, and she may even pass it to her children. Jack Chick, if you want to teach a religious lesson to your audience, please leave pedophilia and sexual abuse out of it! [[LamePun Christ]]!

* Tropers/SamMax: Time for a really horrifying and a [[TearJerker really sad]] moment in an already [[AdaptationDecay awful]] and horrifying ComicBookAdaptation of ''VideoGame/MegaMan'', which is the Brazilian comic, ''ComicBook/NovasAventurasDeMegaman''. In this version, Roll is a homeless girl that gets kidnapped along with a few others. Oh dear, there's some UnfortunateImplications already... [[FromBadToWorse but that's not all]]! Not too long afterward, we see her mutilated body, with her brain exposed and her head [[OffWithHisHead cut off]]. Roll is my favorite character from the franchise, so for [[ThisIsUnforgivable this to be witnessed]] ([[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the fact that she's a robot from the beginning in most versions notwithstanding]]), I'm almost speechless, and not in a good way! It would have been worse if not for Dr. Light choosing to save her brain and putting it in a new body. I don't care about the precise details, because [[BrainBleach I want to forget about them]], and while I'm all for a DarkerAndEdgier adaptation of the Classic Series characters, fine folks like [[Manga/MegaManMegamix Hitoshi Ariga]] and [[ComicBook/MegaMan Ian Flynn]] have proven that you can do so without resorting to {{Gorn}} and such. How this got approved by {{Capcom}}, I'll never know, but I'm glad it [[NoExportForYou never left Brazil]].

** Tropers/{{TommyTiger}}: Removing my former entry for something worse: "Paperino e i Gamberi in Salmì". It seems OK, but the ending is [[DudeNotFunny not funny at all]]. It ends with Scrooge's brother Gedeon giving Huey, Dewey and Louie a parody of the "Pulitzer" prize. Then, he gives it to Donald because they're too young. Good so far. But the ''final'' panel shows the three [[WhatTheHellHero running Donald out of town]] and saying "[[IHaveNoFather You're not our uncle]]... you're a medal snatcher!" ([[OutOfCharacterMoment which is absolutely unexpected for [[SarcasmMode Yes, because Donald getting it is totally stealing it from them]]. And ''[[NoEnding that's how it ends]]''. We're not shown what they wanted to do to him (even though it's very unlikely because they aren't monsters, ''[[FridgeHorror what would happen if they wanted to kill him?]]''), or if Donald [[KarmaHoudini got back at them]]. Even though I admittedly still won't hate them due to still being noble (''WesternAnimation/{{Ducktales}}'' comes to mind), it still pisses me off a lot. Also, remember the [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments absolutely nice]] story where they complained to each other about Donald's many flaws only to suddenly realize that no matter if Donald is a big success or not, he still takes care of them, cooks for them, makes sure they're clothed and happy, and on the whole uses a lot more money on them than he does on himself, feel guilt and resolve to start appreciating their uncle a little more in the future? Yeah. This make the three seem like ignorant at best and full-on {{Ungrateful Bastard}}s at worst. Why don't the publishers of ComicBooks/DonaldDuck just let him have a prize for once?
