*** Jacob Marley too, considering the fact that postmortem he was left with [[AndIMustScream the most agonizing fate imaginable]] and while [[LaserGuidedKarma he only has himself to blame]] (and [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone blame himself]] he does), you can't even enjoy the karma because the poor guy is in so much pain and has come to regret it all so much.

Natter and already covered in the example. Also, as far as actual crimes against people, he treats (treated) his employees pretty badly.
** Scrooge was a miserly, cynical man, but what were his actual ''crimes'' against people? We're supposed to hate him because he's a rich/successful businessman who wants to do what he wants with his own money.

* DesignatedHero: Bob Cratchett is considered the "good guy" of the story, but he basically does nothing other than sit around and ''hope'' things improve for him or his family vs. actually doing out and ''doing'' something to get a better job during a time when new businesses were springing up all over the place thanks to the Industrial Revolution.

* FanWank: Much ink has been shed over the decades about some of the details Dickens left out. What exactly Scrooge does for a living (Money-lender? Landlord?) is one. What exactly is wrong with Tiny Tim (Polio? Rickets? Unspecified kidney disease?) is another.

Not a YMMV trope.
* DespairEventHorizon: Scrooge is dragged kicking and screaming over it when he is shown Tiny Tim's death and his own forgotten grave.
