* TheWoobie: Coffee Talk from the ''[[http://ask-king-sombra.tumblr.com/ Ask King Sombra]]'' blog. She's been kidnapped by [[TheCaligula King Sombra]] and forced to host his talk show (he's that crazy) when all she wanted to do was report on the Crystal Empire (she's a reporter). Not only does she have to put up with Sombra's craziness, it's revealed that [[spoiler:[[CerebusRetcon King Sombra was blown to bits by the Crystal Heart after absorbing Coffee Talk in his shadow form, and now both of them are trapped inside his imagination in the horn fragment that was sent flying by the explosion]], and Coffee Talk may be ''trapped forever''. Worse yet, the Princesses are aware of her predicament but incapable of actually helping her.]] As if all that isn't enough, [[spoiler:she runs into a part of Sombra's mind that gives her a BreakingLecture]]. The poor girl just can't catch a break!
** She eventually [[spoiler:gets her body back]], so there's that.
** Ember from [[http://askember-bell.tumblr.com/ Ask Ember Bell]]. [[ResurrectiveImmortality She's cursed to be reborn in a new universe every time she dies]]...[[DoomMagnet only to throw its story into chaos and finally be destroyed.]] She ''knows'' she's the cause and there's nothing she can do about it. Even though she tries to put on a happy face, it's clear it's hurt her.
*** Worse? [[spoiler:It's been revealed that the way to break her curse is to form a deep connection with somepony else in a world she arrives in. So by trying not to bond with anyone knowing the world will die anyway, she's been preventing her curse from being broken.]]

* CompleteMonster: [[EvilChancellor Vicegerent Zathir]], the BigBad of the Return to Saddle Arabia Arc in ''[[http://i-dream-of-twilight-sparkle.tumblr.com/ Ask Genie Twilight]]'' , is [[TheRemnant descended from]] a RenegadeSplinterFaction of the [[WellIntentionedExtremist anti-Genie regime]] in ancient Saddle Arabia, and believes that [[FantasticRacism Genies should exist only to be mindless servants bound to the whims of a master]]. Zathir attempted to fulfill his faction's twisted ambitions by capturing and enslaving Twilight using a black lamp and collar of his ancestors' creation that [[AndIMustScream left her completely aware, but unable to defy his commands even if it meant being a weapon for the Vicegerent's conquest of her homeland and the rest of the world]]. Even worse, during this enslavement Twilight experiences pain as if she's being constantly electrocuted, and if she's not freed in three days, it becomes permanent. When the Prince Theandri II, Zathir's superior, discovers his plans, the Vicegerent offers to allow Theandril to have his way with Twilight for spurning his affections on a previous "date", stating if he "beats her too hard, she can be fixed easily." In the resulting confrontation with the heroes, Zathir gleefully tries to force Twilight to murder her own loved ones, including Spike--who Twilight considers her son--and the Royal Family of his own country. After Twilight is freed by Spike and his plans ruined, Zathir makes [[WouldHurtAChild an attempt on Spike's life]] by [[EyeScream stabbing him in the eye]], all of this done [[EvilIsPetty purely out of spiteful vengeance]] and hatred, believing genies "don't deserve"children. Such is his FantasticRacism towards Genies that both Twilight and Zathir himself consider [[CruelMercy letting him live in prison with the knowledge a Genie is head of state in Equestria]] a FateWorseThanDeath.

** Discorded Whooves will do this so many times, fans become tired of it (mainly the constant moments where Dissy looks like he's getting better only to randomly go back to being Discorded later on).

** [[spoiler:Onyx]] from Ask Princess Twilight Sparkle. He's either a genuinely terrifying villain who's a good KnightOfCerebus and [[spoiler:who Twilight being genuinely afraid of makes sense because he's a serial killer, something she's never faced before]] or...well, look at the VillainSue entry.

* JerkAssWoobie: Discorded Whooves. He's a womanizing, alcoholic, sarcastic and [[spoiler:physically abusive]] asshole, but as the story unfolds and we see into his mindset (mainly how he's filled to the brim with deep self-loathing, and his attitude is essentially his way of coping with a world that, in his Discorded mind, has abandoned him), and you can't help but pity him.

* VillainSue: ''Harpoon''. The character's sole reason for existence is apparently to attack established canon and fan characters, effortlessly curbstomp them, and then brutally rape/murder them. He ''never'' loses, and whenever someone objects to this or dares to criticize him for being so overpowered, his creator throws a tantrum at the "offender". The blog has recently been put down.
** Except that it is now no longer gone; the blog has returned (With a team of writers/artists, no less) with a supposedly 'improved' version of the character. He -still- has not been 'beaten', he is -still- a sadistic bastard, and he is -still- extremely overpowered; see [[http://pendletondreadful.tumblr.com/ Pendleton Dreadful's Blog]] to see what is going on with him now, as that blog's story is very much intertwined with the character; it's starting to feel like he's shilling Harpoon at this point.
*** Harpoon is, as has been revealed, capable of messing up all kinds of energy except for kinetic. Does that mean he can just disrupt the life energy of anyone he's near? He's also, as of the latest entry in Pendleton Dreadful's story, mutilated Pendleton's wife and unborn son. Some might feel it's pushing into OnlyTheAuthorCanSaveThemNow territory, especially since the reveal of Harpoon's powers. With the story's end, it took a route like something out of Dragon Ball Z, but ended with a whimper rather than a bang.
** [[spoiler:Onyx]] from ''Ask Princess Sparkle''. Let us go down the list: Dark, horrifying, and brutal villain shoehorned into a family friendly blog? check. Kills presented in a cruel, exploitative manner clearly meant to shock and repulse the viewer? check. The protagonist, who has fought and defeated at least ''three'' godlike villains much worse than this guy, scared shitless of him to the point that the mere thought of having to face him head on [[spoiler:without the Elements]] makes her ''break down crying''? Check. [[spoiler:defeats the most powerful character in the setting]]? Check. [[spoiler:Can negate the Elements, something ''no other villain'' in the series has been able to do?]] Check. Its so bad that a good number of people have already begun to guess [[DownerEnding how]] [[KillEmAll this will end]]. WordOfGod has mitigated some of this on their Mod Blog, but it's easy to see why some people feel he's one of these.

** Ask Pun lost almost its entire reader base when the writer decided to push her ''incredibly'' negative views of the Mane Six on the audience, without so much a joke or a lame pun, ''on a blog built almost entirely on bad puns''. The person who posted those installments to Derpibooru couldn't bring himself to do so without deconstructing them.



** Celestia's AdaptationalVillainy in ''Ask Papillon''. The authors self-righteous arrogance and insistence that "this is how Celestia ''truly'' is like" when he was called out on this did ''not'' help.
*** Interestingly enough, this ended up being dropped when the blog rebooted. While still in progress, post retcon, Papillon returns peacefully to the hive having successfully made peace with Equestria, implying that things have been changed for the better. Whether or not this works or was a cop out probably depends on which side of the BrokenBase you were already on.

** DiscordedWhooves for some. Some felt the tumblr could have been '''so much better''' which Whooves being like The Doctor was in 'The Waters of Mars' or 'The Snowman', but instead he's written as being a complete JerkAss that seems to have the power to get two mares around his hoof. It doesn't help that when people ''try'' to suggest some new ideas to the mod, he reacts negatively.
** Miss Twilight Sparkle for some. Because it was ''originally'' a stand alone tumblr, some felt the story of her recovery during her suicide attempts was solid. But following the mod's collaborations with DiscordedWhooves, the tumblr has become rather despised. It doesn't help that Dissy only makes her get ''worse'', all while in Motherly Scootaloo it gives the idea that she's getting better..
