* Tropers/DaddyMulk: from the Italian comic book ''ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}}'', the moment that showed this series has [[JumpTheShark jumped the shark]]. ChuckNorris shows up and kills Rat-Man's enemy. No, it's not bad because it's another example of lame Website/ChuckNorrisFacts, it's bad because it killed any seriousness and credibility of not only the story, but the entire narrative arc had up to that point. You see, the robot Rat-Man was going to face was presented as a credible threat, and Rat-Man was so terrified of it that, to avoid confrontation (the robot was programmed to kill any superhero he'd meet) he dropped for the first time in the series his costume and decided he no longer was a hero. Sure, it was another example of the BrickJoke (ab)used by author Leo Ortolani (in an earlier story it shows as a gag that, every time Rat-Man picks up a book, he can't read it because Chuck Norris asks him to fight bad guys), but you can't ruin the mood of three issues just for the sake of a lame sight gag. Way to go, Leo.

* WhyNotNow: Seriously? No one's even bothered to mention the brief Wizard comic issue from 2002 that actually depicts Goku beating Superman? Not that this troper is against the idea of Superman losing to Goku, he probably would, but that he didn't even have to go [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]] or use some of his best techniques solely for the purpose of [[CurbStompBattle handing Superman his ass on a silver platter]] is just the ultimate crowning moment of EpicFail and an insult worthy of the DeathBattle Goku vs. Superman DMOS to the respective fans for both the DC and ''DragonBallZ'' franchises.

* Tropers/{{KoopaKid17}}: The ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW'' comic is a somewhat faithful adaptation of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the cartoon its based on]]. However, the show and the comic recently seem to like ruining heartwarming moments with MoodWhiplash. The ending to "Don't You Forget About Us" (Issue 38 to 39) has the worst of such moments, focusing on [[ThoseTwoGuys Snips and Snails]] who become lost in the woods with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon. The two colts save Sweetie Belle from being [[BearsAreBadNews mauled by a bear]] and they help pull Apple Bloom and Diamond Tiara to safety when they're about to fall off a cliff. Later on, they bemoan their roles as the dunces of Ponyville and confess that they have feelings, too. I'm not afraid to admit that Snips and Snails deserve more respect in the fandom and the comic did a great job addressing it. But what happens in the end after the foals are rescued? Snails tells the Cutie Mark Crusaders that he and Snips [[UngratefulBastard won't hang out with them]] and the Crusaders think they deserve their cutie marks [[SurroundedByIdiots just for surviving with the two colts]]. Character development down the drain. If they can make Diamond Tiara be friends with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, why not Snips and Snails? The colts proved to the fillies that they were NotSoDifferent but StatusQuoIsGod stepped in, and the ending felt like a punch in the gut. What a waste.
