* AssassinOutclassin: A bunch of assassins are called to kill Alice for a reward, but they all fail and even fight amongst themselves because the reward increases with every assassin killed. What makes it a less than bright idea is that the target is a CrazyPrepared TrapMaster who's familiar with the place the hunt is set in and she even got some days of prep time for the event because Sasori babbled about it to her before.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog:
** Rape attempts for the heck of it cover over half of the series' antagonists. Even a guy like Hibiki who is a justice-obsessed KnightTemplar and who emulates a guy who wouldn't rape or brutalize his victims attempts to get Oki and Alice raped.
** Dinoponera kills a poor employee of Alice's school for no reason when she greets Kabutomushi, showing that for all of her talk of wanting friends, she's an unreasonable bitch who feels contempt for normal people. She's also excessively cruel to Alice when she discovers the spider girl's cheesy InstantExpert skills.

[[spoiler:Kabutomushi herself is who kills Yoriko at the end of the story, by blowing her off the school's rooftop. That's around 12.]]

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: The protagonist of the prequel, Imomushi, was introduced in ''Arachnid'' with business of her own to take care off. Not too long after, Suzumebachi stabbed Imomushi from behind while she was trying to fight Dinoponera and she apparently died instantly in a most unceremonious fashion. [[HesJustHiding Readers generally assume she didn't die]], but she never gets mentioned again and Hanakamakiri never comes to check on things, either.
