Even as a Creator/CartoonNetwork show, you can expect several unsatisfactory [[DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck moments]] from this [[CanadaEh Canadian]] import.

Keep in mind:
* Sign your entries
* One moment to a troper, if multiple entries are signed to the same troper the more recent one will be cut.
* Moments only, no "just everything he said," "The entire show," or "This entire season," entries.
* No contesting entries. This is subjective, the entry is their opinion.
* No natter. As above, anything contesting an entry will be cut, and anything that's just contributing more can be made its own entry.
* Explain ''why'' it's a DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck.
* No ASSCAPS, no bold, and no italics unless it's the title of a work. We are not yelling the [=DMoSs=] out loud.
----

* Tropers/{{Ajustice}}: I think the finale of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' in America and Canada is a [=DMoS=] cause they let Owen beat Gwen. And the only reason Owen won is because everyone helped him win so they have a party. And seriously Gwen was more deserving of winning; she won more challenges, went through love and loss, and took down Heather the antagonist, while Owen farted, ate, lost his pants, and got beat up a lot. I just want to say I am a fan of Owen as well, and that I'm fat and lazy like him and I am okay that Owen proved fat guys can be winners, but that would've worked better if he was competing against Heather or a ButtMonkey, but not Gwen. It's because the comedic relief who just wanted a party beat a person who went from a recluse to the most developed character on the show and wanted to used the money to help her go to college and make her mom's life easier that makes it a [=DMoS=]. And if you've seen the alternate ending you'll realize that it's better, Gwen and Owen split the money, everyone minus Heather still would've have had a wild party, and Trent encouraging Gwen to win was a much better way for the two to get hook up. This troper would also like to admit that he wrote the TDI alternate ending as one of the show's [=CMoA=].
* Tropers/{{Baronobeefdip}}: For ''Total Drama World Tour''-esque DMOS, look no further than [[TheScrappy Sierra]] revealing she had been [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating Cody's emotions]] in order to get close to him at the end of the episode in Paris. Now, for the most part, the episode is decent enough. However, throughout the episode Sierra is acting all [[{{Wangst}} wangsty]] after finding out that Cody doesn't like her. And Sierra sings quite an EarWorm of a song about this as well. So, Cody pretty much works his ''ass'' off trying to cheer Sierra up until he finally snaps and admits that he finds her [[StalkerWithACrush creepy stalker behavior]] more tolerable than her constant weeping. Sounds like an attempt to develop Sierra's relationship with Cody and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap save her from her "Scrappy" status]] right? Nope. Turns out she was "playing hard to get" so that Cody would start "liking" (or "tolerating", in this case) her. It pretty much cemented Sierra's "Scrappy" status for me right there. Not to mention that, earlier, Chris yelled at Cody to make Sierra stop crying. Um, Chris, you find Sierra to be unbelievably annoying as well, remember? Or did you forget she wouldn't stop talking about your most embarrassing secrets ([[BerserkButton like being in a "boy band"]])? If anything, it just made the aforementioned reveal of Sierra playing [[ManipulativeBastard "manipulative bitch"]] to Cody all the more unbearable...and I'm not even that big of a Cody fan to begin with.
* Tropers/{{Mogo}}: For this troper action had Beth and Duncan being the final two. Beth and Duncan. The Delinquent JerkAss who's only slightly better than his girlfriend and the slightly creepy nice wannabe girl who shouldn't even have gotten this far. But the real suck comes from the fact that the winner was chosen by an audience vote that basically said "fuck you viewers, the ending means nothing to us!" At least with Gwen and Owen, it was strictly an alternate ending and Owen was indeed the intended and the Special just completely ignored it. Despite World Tour's GainaxEnding at least it was planned out.
** Tropers/RA2 I would've been ok with this one if they actually tried to make any minuscule semblance what so ever of explaining who voted for whom, hell I would have been happy just to know who the swing vote was - there must have been one person on the fence else the alternate ending would not exist. But no, they just announce the winner and we're supposed to accept that. Also, it's very strongly implied that Harold voted for Duncan. What? The guy bullies him, physically and mentally for two entire seasons, and then Harold not only forgives him, but votes for him over Beth to win the million? If it walks like a WritersPet...
* Tropers/{{Ian}}: The aforementioned GainaxEnding in ''World Tour.'' Even for a show tilting towards CerebusSyndrome, seeing Al and Zeke get engulfed in lava and horribly disfigured (the latter on fire and screaming in pain) is pretty heavy stuff. The Dethroning Moment sinks in when you realize they created all that NightmareFuel just for the sake a couple of asinine, poorly-written, cliched, and entirely predictable homages to [[LordOfTheRings Return of the King]] and [[StarWars Revenge of the Sith]], complete with a BigNo contrivedly shoehorned in. In fact, that brings up another problem with the season finales- the writers' insistence on having "alternate endings so not even the actors know who wins." I'm sorry, but that's the close to the stupidest thing I've ever heard. They already know the entire plot, all the eliminations up to the final 2, and the circumstances of the win that are pretty much the same regardless of the victor. The only secret left is 30 seconds of footage and three or four lines of dialogue. Do they seriously think that it's worth diluting the impact of the finale just for that? Also the aforementioned BigNo makes no sense in the version where Heather wins, [[FridgeLogic why would Al be sad to learn that the person who kicked him in the kiwis and embarrassed him on national television just lost a million dollars?]] I don't know why the director has such a hard-on for alternate endings, but I pray that the crew shake-up prior to "Revenge of the Island" knocks some sense into someone.
* Tropers/GingerSnaps: Cody resolving to take advantage of Sierra's devotion to him in order to get the money, in ''"Rapa Phooey"''. The very moment he slapped on that incredibly SmugSnake expression and JerkAss-ey smirk, winked at the camera, and said, "if she insists on handing me a million dollars, who am I to stop her? Heh, heh.", his entire "NiceGuy" image crumbled into dust. So when he became the "good guy" of the final three, it gave everything a rather bitter taste.
* Tropers/{{lasalle28}}: The biggest deal breaker of the third season for me was the episode "Greece's Pieces". The episode opens up with Courtney and Gwen talking about Duncan's return. Gwen, who [[YourCheatingHeart kissed Courtney's boyfriend yesterday]] after she finally befriends her, shows a grand total of ten seconds worth of guilt in the confessional and then contradicts herself by saying she won't tell Courtney about the kiss until it happens again and following it up by saying that she is looking forward to kissing him again and [[CaptainObvious asking into the camera if this makes her a bad person]]. Meaning she is still going to see him behind Courtney's back and won't do a thing about it until they kiss again. So much for the [[AesopAmnesia "As long as you're up front, nothing can bite you in the butt" girl from the previous season, right, Gwen?]]. Meanwhile Duncan, whom cheated on his girlfriend literally behind her back, is busy threatening Tyler to keep quiet about the kiss and then he is seen in the next scene mutually "eye-flirting" with Gwen with Courtney [[DarthWiki/WallBanger standing right next to her]] and Gwen lies to her face about it. At this point in time it's safe to say that [[TookALevelInJerkAss Duncan's]] JerkWithAHeartOfGold status he has is pretty much an InformedAbility from this point on, as is Gwen's supposed "guilt". The next scenes leading up to the ending is just Courtney [[ProperlyParanoid being suspicious about Duncan and Gwen]], Gwen pitifully trying to change the subject whenever Duncan is brought up, and Duncan being forced to sing (and one of his songs included saying that he does not regret kissing Gwen behind Courtney's back). When Tyler is forcibly told to spill the beans about Duncan and Gwen, Courtney gets understandably pissed, but what does Gwen do? Does she make any kind of attempt to apologize or accept any kind of responsibilty for her actions? No! Instead she [[CharacterDerailment cowers when Courtney gets mad, cries when they want to vote her off]], and starts cheering when Cody wins the challenge for her so that she [[KarmaHoudini can't get voted off]]. The scene that took the DMOS award goes to the ending. The episode's Crowning Moment of Disgusting for me was when Courtney, the show's JerkAss Tsundere [[TedBaxter Baxter]] is seen [[TearJerker crying uncontrollably]] while being comforted by [[ManipulativeBastard Hea]][[AlphaBitch ther]] of all people, while Gwen is doing what? Starting a confessional at the end of the episode by talking about how great the kiss was while smiling and topping that off by saying that her [[WasItReallyWorthIt sole regret]] was that [[ItsAllAboutMe she (Gwen)]] and her "[[YourCheatingHeart new]] [[JerkAss boyfriend]]" are going to be eliminated now...[[EliminationHoudini except he wasn't.]] How you ask? At the elimination, when it was unanimous decision to vote off Duncan, Chris, in all of his jerkass glory, announces that he is going to outright [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem ignore the votes and keep Duncan on the show despite the votes]] because Duncan is bringing the drama right now. Then the episode officially ends with Gwen cheering when Duncan doesn't leave and Courtney tearfully shouting 'I HATE YOU!' at Gwen and Duncan. Duncan and Gwen in this episode were so [[CharacterDerailment derailed]] here, it was disgusting. They had no remorse for what they did, both were incredibly selfish, Duncan's JerkWithAHeartOfGold trait is officially an informed attribute from this point on, and Gwen went from being the OnlySaneMan to being [[NotSoDifferent just as bad as Duncan, Courtney, and especially Heather.]] This episode marked the beginning of everyone's character derailment and the last episode of this season (and maybe the series) that I ever watch.
** Tropers/MightyMewtron: The following episode made things worse. Okay, we understand that Gwen is pretty much as guilty as Duncan in this whole "cheating" fiasco. But that doesn't justify why Courtney wants to ''murder'' her (as evidenced in the song's visuals)! Courtney has the right to be angry about all this, but she seems to be targetting Gwen ''before'' Duncan. True, targetting Gwen may only be because Gwen is on her team- and therefore, easier to get rid off- but Duncan and Courtney have apparently hated each other ''far'' more in the previous seasons. Duncan gets a lot of physical torment, but it's still pretty imbalanced. At least Gwen had the 10 seconds of guilt- it's 10 more than Duncan ever had. Not to mention the episode also killed any chance of Courtney returning to her nice self at all.
* Tropers/{{dynaboyj}}: The ending of I See London. A mostly good episode died with a one-two-three punch of [[DeadpanSnarker No]][[OnlySaneMan ah]] getting kicked off, Ezekiel, who had always got cut short of a plot, becoming a Gollum {{Expy}}, and most importantly, [[FanPreferredCouple Gwen and Duncan kissing]]. Yeah, that last one would lead to a lot more unpleasant moments.
** Tropers/KentuckyTroper1990 : I concur on this episode. Noah was one of my favorite characters during World Tour, and him getting booted was grade-A bullshit. Even though his team won the challenge, they basically say, "Get rid of an interesting character, and lets reboot a tired love subplot". Bull. Shit.
** fluffything: While I agree 100% that Noah's departure is utter BS in all shapes and forms, I must point out another DMOS within the same episode. Namely, Duncan's return (which has also been mentioned above). Why? Because it's the most contrived, asinine, and utterly pointless character return to the series serving no purpose other than to provide "romantic tension" between three characters. At the very start (IE: the first episode) of ''World Tour'', Duncan makes it very clear that he has quit the show since he doesn't want to do the sing along. Fine. A hasty way to write-off a character, but, fine. The DMOS comes in when he's found in London and taken on-board Chris's ship and essentially shoved back into the game. That's it. Just..."Here's Duncan again! He's in the show!". Even worse, instead of using Duncan's return to full potential ([[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot There was so much they could've done with the concept, but, sadly, didn't.]]), they pretty much just use him for a tired Duncan/Gwen/Courtney LoveTriangle that the fandom was already sick and tired of. TD, if you're going to get rid of an EnsembleDarkHorse (IE: Noah) for another fan favorite (If Duncan even has fans anymore), then at least do something interesting with it.
* Tropers/SophieSummer: For me, it was in TDA when Trent is going "crazy" over Gwen. He was obviously suffering from OCD, but the intent was obviously for us to laugh at his antics. People having to do rituals over and over is not at all funny.
** Tropers/MightyMewtron: Considering how Mike's MPD is PlayedForLaughs in ''Revenge'', the writers probably don't even care about being offensive to those with mental disabilities.
* Animeking1108: I forget the episode, but it was when Duncan, Geoff, and DJ started tormenting Harold just because he [[DisproportionateRetribution left his underwear on the floor]]. [[JerkAss Duncan]], I can understand, but why get [[NiceGuy DJ and Geoff]] into it? Especially considering DJ was the only character who didn't suffer Season 2's CharacterDerailment, it seems immensely out of character for him.
* SoulfulGinger17: I love the ''Revenge'' finale, it's probably in my Top 10 favorite episodes of all time, but there is one scene I will never forgive the writers for: [[spoiler: Scott is given the [[Franchise/StarTrek Captain Pike treatment]] for sabotaging his team and blackmail]]. Now I know [[spoiler: Scott]] is the villain, and the villain is supposed to get theirs, [[DudeNotFunny this just came across as cruel]] and everyone except [[NiceGuy Brick and Cameron]] think it ''is'' funny. This is just, ugh, I'm going to stop here, so I don't break my school's computer.

* Tropers/{{Mogo}}: For this troper action had Beth and Duncan being the final two. Beth and Duncan. The Delinquent JerkAss who's only slightly better than his girlfriend and the slightly creepy nice wannabe girl who shouldn't even have gotten this far. But the real suck comes from the fact that the winner was chosen by an audience vote that basically said "fuck you viewers, the ending means nothing to us!" At least with Gwen and Owen, it was strictly an alternate ending and Owen was indeed the intended and the Special just completely ignored it. Despite World Tour's GainaxEnding at least it was planned out.
** Tropers/{{RA2}} I would've been ok with this one if they actually tried to make any minuscule semblance what so ever of explaining who voted for whom, hell I would have been happy just to know who the swing vote was - there must have been one person on the fence else the alternate ending would not exist. But no, they just announce the winner and we're supposed to accept that. Also, it's very strongly implied that Harold voted for Duncan. What? The guy bullies him, physically and mentally for two entire seasons, and then Harold not only forgives him, but votes for him over Beth to win the million? If it walks like a WritersPet...

* Tropers/{{GingerSnaps}}: Cody resolving to take advantage of Sierra's devotion to him in order to get the money, in ''"Rapa Phooey"''. The very moment he slapped on that incredibly SmugSnake expression and JerkAss-ey smirk, winked at the camera, and said, "if she insists on handing me a million dollars, who am I to stop her? Heh, heh.", his entire "NiceGuy" image crumbled into dust. So when he became the "good guy" of the final three, it gave everything a rather bitter taste.

** fluffything: While I agree 100% that Noah's departure is utter BS in all shapes and forms, I must point out another DMOS within the same episode. Namely, Duncan's return (which has also been mentioned above). Why? Because it's the most contrived, asinine, and utterly pointless character return to the series serving no purpose other than to provide "romantic tension" between three characters. At the very start (IE: the first episode) of ''World Tour'', Duncan makes it very clear that he has quit the show since he doesn't want to do the sing along. Fine. A hasty way to write-off a character, but, fine. The DMOS comes in when he's found in London and taken on-board Chris's ship and essentially shoved back into the game. That's it. Just..."Here's Duncan again! He's in the show!". Even worse, instead of using Duncan's return to full potential ([[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot There was so much they could've done with the concept, but, sadly, didn't.]]), they pretty much just use him for a tired Duncan/Gwen/Courtney LoveTriangle that the fandom was already sick and tired of. TD, if you're going to get rid of an EnsembleDarkhorse (IE: Noah) for another fan favorite (If Duncan even has fans anymore), then at least do something interesting with it.
* Tropers/{{SophieSummer}}: For me, it was in TDA when Trent is going "crazy" over Gwen. He was obviously suffering from OCD, but the intent was obviously for us to laugh at his antics. People having to do rituals over and over is not at all funny.

* Tropers/{{Baronobeefdip}}: For ''Total Drama World Tour''-esque DMOS, look no further than [[TheScrappy Sierra]] revealing she had been [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating Cody's emotions]] in order to get close to him at the end of the episode in Paris. Now, for the most part, the episode is decent enough. However, throughout the episode Sierra is acting all [[{{Wangst}} wangsty]] after finding out that Cody doesn't like her. And Sierra sings quite an EarWorm of a song about this as well. So, Cody pretty much works his ''ass'' off trying to cheer Sierra up until he finally snaps and admits that he finds her [[StalkerWithACrush creepy stalker behavior]] more tolerable than her constant weeping. Sounds like an attempt to develop Sierra's relationship with Cody and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap save her from her "Scrappy" status]] right? Nope. Turns out she was "playing hard to get" so that Cody would start "liking" (or "tolerating", in this case) her. It pretty much cemented Sierra's "Scrappy" status for me right there. Not to mention that, earlier, Chris yelled at ''Cody'' to make Sierra stop crying. Um, Chris, you find Sierra to be '''unbelievably annoying''' as well, remember? Or did you forget she wouldn't stop talking about your most embarrassing secrets ([[BerserkButton like being in a "boy band"]])? If anything, it just made the aforementioned reveal of Sierra playing [[ManipulativeBastard "manipulative bitch"]] to Cody all the more unbearable...and I'm not even that big of a Cody fan to begin with.
* Tropers/{{Mogo}}: For this troper action had Beth and Duncan being the final two. BETH AND DUNCAN. The Delinquent JerkAss who's only slightly better than his girlfriend and the slightly creepy nice wannabe girl who shouldn't even have gotten this far. But the real suck comes from the fact that THE WINNER WAS CHOSEN BY AN AUDIENCE VOTE THAT BASICALLY SAID "FUCK YOU VIEWERS, THE ENDING MEANS NOTHING TO US!" At least with Gwen and Owen, it was strictly an alternate ending and Owen was indeed the intended and the Special just completely ignored it. Despite World Tour's GainaxEnding at least it was planned out.
** Tropers/{{RA2}} I would've been ok with this one IF they actually tried to make any minuscule semblance what so ever of explaining who voted for whom, hell I would have been happy just to know who the swing vote was - there must have been one person on the fence else the alternate ending would not exist.

* Tropers/{{Ian}}: The aforementioned GainaxEnding in ''World Tour.'' Even for a show tilting towards CerebusSyndrome, seeing Al and Zeke get engulfed in lava and horribly disfigured (the latter ''on fire and screaming in pain'') is pretty heavy stuff. The Dethroning Moment sinks in when you realize they created all that NightmareFuel just for the sake a couple of asinine, poorly-written, cliched, and entirely predictable homages to [[LordOfTheRings Return of the King]] and [[StarWars Revenge of the Sith]], complete with a BigNo contrivedly shoehorned in. In fact, that brings up another problem with the season finales- the writers' insistence on having "alternate endings so not even the actors know who wins." I'm sorry, but that's the close to the stupidest thing I've ever heard. They already know the entire plot, all the eliminations up to the final 2, and the circumstances of the win that are pretty much the same regardless of the victor. The only secret left is 30 seconds of footage and three or four lines of dialogue. Do they seriously think that it's worth diluting the impact of the finale just for that???????????? Also the aforementioned BigNo makes no sense in the version where Heather wins, [[FridgeLogic why would Al be sad to learn that the person who kicked him in the kiwis and embarrassed him on national television just lost a million dollars?]] I don't know why the director has such a hard-on for alternate endings, but I pray that the crew shake-up prior to "Revenge of the Island" knocks some sense into someone.

* Tropers/{{lasalle28}}: The biggest deal breaker of the third season for me was the episode "Greece's Pieces". The episode opens up with Courtney and Gwen talking about Duncan's return. Gwen, who [[YourCheatingHeart kissed Courtney's boyfriend yesterday]] after she finally befriends her, shows a grand total of ten seconds worth of guilt in the confessional and then contradicts herself by saying she won't tell Courtney about the kiss until it happens again and following it up by saying that she is LOOKING FORWARD TO KISSING HIM AGAIN and [[CaptainObvious asking into the camera if this makes her a bad person]]. Meaning she is ''still'' going to see him behind Courtney's back and won't do a thing about it until they kiss again. So much for the [[AesopAmnesia "As long as you're up front, nothing can bite you in the butt" girl from the previous season, right, Gwen?]]. Meanwhile Duncan, whom cheated on his girlfriend literally behind her back, is busy threatening Tyler to keep quiet about the kiss and then he is seen in the next scene mutually "eye-flirting" with Gwen with Courtney [[DarthWiki/WallBanger STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO HER]] and Gwen lies to her face about it. At this point in time it's safe to say that [[TookALevelInJerkAss Duncan's]] JerkWithAHeartOfGold status he has is pretty much an InformedAbility from this point on, as is Gwen's supposed "guilt". The next scenes leading up to the ending is just Courtney [[ProperlyParanoid being suspicious about Duncan and Gwen]], Gwen pitifully trying to change the subject whenever Duncan is brought up, and Duncan being forced to sing (and one of his songs included saying that he ''does NOT regret kissing Gwen behind Courtney's back''). When Tyler is forcibly told to spill the beans about Duncan and Gwen, Courtney gets understandably pissed, but what does Gwen do? Does she make any kind of attempt to apologize or accept any kind of responsibilty for her actions? No! Instead she [[CharacterDerailment cowers when Courtney gets mad, cries when they want to vote her off]], and starts cheering when Cody wins the challenge for her so that she [[KarmaHoudini can't get voted off]]. The scene that took the DMOS award goes to the ending. The episode's Crowning Moment of Disgusting for me was when Courtney, the show's JerkAss Tsundere [[TedBaxter Baxter]] is seen [[TearJerker crying uncontrollably]] while being comforted by [[ManipulativeBastard Hea]][[AlphaBitch ther]] of all people, while Gwen is doing what? Starting a confessional at the end of the episode by talking about how ''GREAT'' the kiss was while ''smiling'' and topping that off by saying that her [[WasItReallyWorthIt sole regret]] was that [[ItsAllAboutMe she (Gwen)]] and her "[[YourCheatingHeart new]] [[JerkAss boyfriend]]" are going to be eliminated now...[[EliminationHoudini except he wasn't.]] How you ask? At the elimination, when it was unanimous decision to vote off Duncan, Chris, in all of his jerkass glory, announces that he is going to outright [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem ''ignore the votes and keep Duncan on the show despite the votes'']] because Duncan is bringing the drama right now. Then the episode officially ends with Gwen cheering when Duncan doesn't leave and Courtney tearfully shouting 'I HATE YOU!' at Gwen and Duncan. Duncan and Gwen in this episode were so [[CharacterDerailment derailed]] here, it was disgusting. They had no remorse for what they did, both were incredibly selfish, Duncan's JerkWithAHeartOfGold trait is officially an informed attribute from this point on, and Gwen went from being the OnlySaneMan to being [[NotSoDifferent just as bad as Duncan, Courtney, and ESPECIALLY Heather.]] This episode marked the beginning of everyone's character derailment and the last episode of this season (and maybe the series) that I ever watch.
