** [[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.

Broken Base requires acknowledging both sides, not just ones complaints.
** 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 enjoy the tumblr as it is, others find it suffering HypeBacklash, others just find it could have been better.

** 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..

* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:[[BigBad Vicegerent]] [[EvilChancellor Zathir]]]] from ''Ask Genie Twilight'' crossed it by [[spoiler:subjecting Twilight to an AndIMustScream form of mind control in his bid to conquer the world.]] It's little wonder [[http://bronyinabottle.tumblr.com/post/116866749102/i-hope-zathirs-defeat-is-equally-disgraceful-and viewers started asking for his excruciating demise]] after that.

Please present all Complete Monster candidates in this thread.
* CompleteMonster: ** The Master also deserves special mention, being responsible for several murders and at least one genocide. It's explicitly stated that his [[AnythingThatMoves Anything That Moves]] behavior isn't for pleasure, he does it because he enjoys breaking people. If his use of a perception filter is anything to go by, he may even qualify as the pony equivalent of a [[HumanoidAbomination Humanoid Abomination]]. ** [[spoiler:[[EldritchAbomination Appelox]] from the Ask Japplejack blog was [[FallenHero one of the Harmony Titans]] who created and protected Equestria, until he betrayed his siblings and ''ate them'', something he practically brags about to Japplejack's face. His goal? [[OmnicidalManiac To consumed all of existence.]] And he's played dead straight.]] ** Discord in the Discord Whooves Tumblrs. Discord Whooves has him discord the Doctor, causing him to beat ''Derpy'' and from what her flashbacks say nearly ''kill her'', and the discordation looks like it's driving him mad. Then there's what he did in Zerum Whooves, where he MindRaped the Doctor into killing Derpy, and now keeps him in a featureless void as a sex slave, with the Doctor (or Zerum as he now calls himself) thinking of himself as nothing worthy of mention. ** Kuleco from Ask Kuleco at least so far qualifies. While most Rainbow Factory inspired blogs tend to give some kind of humanising moments or PetTheDog opportunities Kuleco is well established to have been a psychotic murderer even before he came to the Factory. The two who are responsible for his employment, Doctor HoofSing and Professor ElCee, to whom Kuleco is effectively TheDragon, can also easily count.
