* [=Charsi=]: In ''VideoGame/GameOfThronesAscent'',[[TheWoobie Tyana's]] judgement was uncomfortable to go through even after several reincarnations. After Rona accuses her of being an enemy's spy, she doesn't bother presenting any proof of that, only mentions some letters she found, but burned by the time your character asks for them to examine (if she not outright admits she has no proof whatsoever, just felt like playing HangingJudge), after your daughter Jayne, rightfully calling you out on injustice, tells she has taught Tyana how to write, thus would be able to tell whether the letters were Tyana's handwriting. Tyana is promptly imprisoned and her fate never gets resolution as far as we know, the not saintly, but usually ReasonableAuthorityFigure PlayerCharacter is {{Railroaded}} to be okay with this procedure and never gives her a chance to defend herself, prompting even Jayne to run away in an attempt to try and get proof of her innocence, and not even getting suspicious of Rona in the meanwhile, who has already made the decisions behind your back and calmly lets you take the heat for her actions. This seemed to be uncharacteristic naivete and disturbing abuse of power on your character part, who is renown for his/her compassion toward smallfolk and whose way of thinking and ruling is usually [[PoliticallyCorrectHistory more modern than medieval.]] Hell, when [[TheScrappy Jayne]], usually the [[Characters/BBCRobinHood Kate]] of the house, is the OnlySaneMan, that says something about the rest of the cast...

* ''DethroningMoment/{{Fallou}}''



* {{Tropers/SDRim_6}}: The Tenpenny Tower quest from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''. The quest revolves around a pre-war fancy hotel that a group of ghouls (mutated people that are immortal and look like zombies) want to get in while the owner Alistair Tenpenny refuses them entry. Throughout the entire quest it paints the ghouls as the downtrodden good guys who just want a home while it paints everyone in the tower as racist assholes. But that isn't the real moment of suck. The real moment is taking the peaceful resolution to the quest and letting both the ghouls and the humans live together through negotiating. However, when you return a few days later, all of the humans are dead including the ones who were indifferent to, or even liked ghouls. Okay, grey and grey morality, I guess I can kill their leader who committed mass murder... The game begs to differ. When you kill their leader Roy Phillips you take a hit to your karma therefore making it bad that you killed a mass murderer. It's just one of those moments where someone tries to shove black and white morality in a place that has clear grey and grey, black and grey, or even black and black (depending on how you view the situation) morality. It's safe to say I'm not the only one who hated this moment.
** Tropers/{{cricri3007}}: There are a few things I don't like in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'', but the real dethroning goes to the "East Chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel" wich is just a way to say "a slightly nicer Enclave". It may be more in line with the attitude of the West chapters, but not with the East one introduced in ''{{VideoGame/Fallout3}}'', who had abandoned his initial mission to help people. To top it off, Owyn and Sarah Lyons are dead while the Lone Wanderer is not even mentioned. Congratulations, Bethesda! You made one of the very few good factions into what they were fighting and made the entire third game [[ShootTheShaggyDog completely pointless]]! Thus ruining any enjoyment I would have of replaying it on top of making sure I would not buy Fallout 4 for a long time.

Added DiffLines:

** Tropers/{{Case}}: A mainline Mario game starts with a lengthy unskippable cutscene. Hey, kids, want to play some Mario? All right, just wait a few minutes while we (fail to) explain why he has to collect the shines! That the cutscene looks and sounds downright incomplete at parts, and, well, everything written above, just makes an already bad problem worse.

* SamMax: I liked ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'' as a whole but [[spoiler:Penelope's betrayal]] is a BaseBreaker for a good reason: [[AssPull it practically came out of nowhere]]. Especially since [[spoiler:''VideoGame/Sly3HonorAmongThieves'' has her spend a good chunk of the game having a crush on Sly, yet here, she hates him because she felt her potential was being wasted, even though she didn't have that many missions in ''Sly 3'', and seemed to have no problem with that]]. It's just frustrating all around.

** Loekman3: The moment when the Arkham Knight unmasks himself as surprise surprise, [[spoiler: Jason Todd]]. This is a [=DMOS=] for several reasons and not just because it's so obvious it hurts:
## Any credibility or reputation as a badass antithesis of Batman is gone, his voice has gone from a menacing and badass into a whiny man who is willing to kill Batman and all of Gotham [[DisproportionateRetribution all because he felt abandoned by Batman]].
## No matter how sympathetic you are, it does not excuse the fact that you hire hundreds of trained mercenaries, have them murder a couple of innocent people and turn the city of Gotham into ruins all to accomplish his objective, and this MoralDissonance is never addressed at all.
## It fully cements Rocksteady's claim of him to be an OriginalCharacter a complete and total lie; aka he isn't an [=OC=] at all, he's just another identity that [[spoiler: Jason took]].
*** All in all, I can never think of [[spoiler: Jason Todd]] and Arkham Knight as the same person at all, it does not mesh with each other.
