* EvilMatriarch: The Ancestress, who corrupted the Sui dynasty to ruin, slaughtered millions of peasants for the vanity of having people die on her extravagant projects, and [[KarmaHoudini ultimately, using her weak-willed step-son as a scapegoat, got away scot-free to live a life of decadent luxury and bitter plotting to restore her reign]]. [[spoiler: Fortunately, once her tenure as an ArcVillain is over, Henpecked Ho settles with her and her evil clan off-page.]]

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: The Neo-Confucians are Always Lawful Evil. Not a single one is ever anything less than a complete asshole who feel entitled to treat other people like dirt and expect to be praised for it, and their hyper-conservative influence is killing China by inches. [[spoiler: In the end, however, they are ''not'' the main antagonists. The BigBad is driven, at least partially, by a desire to ''escape'' their influence and create art outside their stifling strictures.]]
