* ObfuscatingStupidity: Played with in "Gronkowsbees." After Peter and the boys confront [[DumbJock Rob Gronkowski]] about his obnoxious partying and disregard for his neighbors, the lummox actually waxes a [[HiddenDepths surprisingly insightful and pensive]] speculation that his boorish behavior is a product of a celebrity-fixated culture and these are expectations society has of him, and he's powerless to resist. But then *utterly* averted when he laughs at them and declares he's just doing it all just because he's an asshole and he feels like it.

** Connie, who has tormented Meg for many years, was last seen pelting her with dodgeballs with the rest of her gym class. Despite her earlier punishments, especially from Brian (in "Barely Legal") and Stewie (in "[=McStroke=]"), she hasn't learned from her mistakes.

** Peter and Stewie get away with rather callous and sometimes outright murderous acts at times. Lois seems to be shifting towards this region too.

** Sonja, Quagmire's ex-girlfriend from the season 12 episode ''Quagmire's Quagmire'' was also one of these. She humiliates Quagmire in public, beats him over the head and puts him in the trunk of his car, fully intending on making him into her sex slave.

** In one episode Stewie abducts the cast of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' after he's unable to get his questions about the show answered at a convention. After he kills Denise Crosby to make sure they don't try anything funny, he spends the day with them, only they turn out to be totally annoying and demanding. By the end of his time with them, he's announced that they've ruined ''Next Generation'' for him and he hopes they all die. AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: One could argue that the cast were acting this way on purpose, seeing as how he killed Denise, they probably figured that by acting utterly annoying he'd grow sick of them and send them home. Counts as either a BatmanGambit or ThanatosGambit, because if such was the case, there was just as much chance he'd kill them if they annoyed him too much..
