* 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.

* @/{{tsstevens}} One for the ''ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' series in the ''Anywhere But Here'' storyline. We get a flashback to where Kennedy is upset with how Willow is acting and realizes what's eating her girlfriend is [[LesYay not her,]] but Tara's murder. In the motion comics this line is added.
-->You known when I said I was open to a threesome I had something more fun in mind.
** Fucksake Kennedy, this shit is why everyone hates you.

I have a few problems with this. First, why in hell would you want to show a child getting killed in a comic book primarily aimed at children? Secondly, how in the fucking world am I supposed to relate to a king that not only accepts that children get enslaved, but even killed to preserve that form of slavery? Lastly, was it really necessary to bring out the corruption of the wizard in order for the king to rebel against him when, you know, the wizard who put children into slavery?! That being said though, it is not irredeemably awful, since it at least cracked up a few decent jokes and is definitely better than the actual ParvumOpus of the series.

* Tropers/{{Peridonyx}}: ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW'''s ''Reflections'' arc, while a BaseBreaker for shipping Princess Celestia with Mirror King Sombra, is still deep. Then comes the ending: Sombra's HeroicSacrifice forcibly gives him a FaceHeelTurn (making him just like Main!Sombra), the mirror between their worlds breaks (denying them even a goodbye), and the last panels show them both consequently DespairEventHorizon-ing. Look, all the other arcs -- flaws and all -- end in at least some closure. This? A ShootTheShaggyDog, StatusQuoIsGod, TakeThatAudience, and/or TheyJustDidntCare. Not cool, writers.
