** The villainous Epic Archetypes clarify that being TheChosenOne is fluid. Those archetypes involve the player character being an Arachnos soldier who finds out about the list of Chosen Ones and plots to alter it so their own name is on the list and they could gain far more power than being a mere mook. In a later storyarc, Arachnos has reason to create another copy of the list entirely from scratch, at which point it's revealed that the player character is now legitimately on the list due to their own hard work to become The Chosen One.

* ParentalIncest: Actually, make that ''Grand''Parental Incest, implied between Tyrant and Dominatrix (the evil versions of Statesman and Ms. Liberty), especially in the spin-off comic.

* ParentalIncest: Actually, make that ''Grand''Parental Incest, implied between Tyrant and Dominatrix (the evil versions of Statesman and Ms. Liberty), especially in the spin-off comic. The narration describes Dominatrix as having caught Tyrant's attention and "serving him loyally, in all capacities," while she's drawn kneeling by his throne.

* ItsPersonal: For many fans, the announcement of the shutdown of City Of Heroes left them extraordinarily pissed off at NC Soft. Many still haven't forgiven the company for it. For pretty much [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters just about everyone]] the shutdown announcement was met by massive campaigns. First to keep the game alive, and then from being forgotten, and now there are campaigns whose goal is to attempt to resurrect it. And then there's [[BeyondTheImpossible Atlas Park 33]]... When the game was announced as closing, a massive meeting of heroes ''and'' villains converged on Atlas Park, straining the servers so much it had to create ''[[UpToEleven 33 instances of the location just to handle them all]]''. While the rest of the instances eventually closed out, the 33rd instance, known as Atlas Park 33 was kept in existence by an ongoing vigil that lasted [[NeverSayDie right up till the game's final moments.]]

** An odd case of Meme-turned-extra: During the Closed Beta of ''City of Villains'', A player on the Beta feedback message boards had posted confusion as to why your character didn't jump from gang to gang, using the already established villain gangs set up in City of Heroes. It was pointed out to them that a lot of groups (Freakshow, Devouring Earth, etc.,) would be ''impossible'' to quit, and some posted a few comical stories about a made-up incompetent trying to quit each different gang in ''City of Heroes/Villains'' with comedic results. More people followed suit, and eventually the "quitter" was given the nickname "Jenkins", and it stuck. (Which is possibly a ''[[WebVideo/LeeroyJenkinsVideo World of Warcraft]]'' reference, or an incredible coincidence.) Jenkins quickly became popular on the Beta boards as a sort of meme, rather than an actual extra. Later, the programmer behind the character Black Scorpion posted that he had just read the thread and found it to be hilarious. The very next update to the Beta had added "Jenkins", an Arachnos incompetent, to the opening tutorial wherein the villains PC has to save him in order to escape from prison.
