** The participation of Ask the Crusaders in the VocationalDeathCruise. A lot of fans preferred when the Crusaders were answering questions in-character over the darker turn the blog had taken. However, there are also a lot of fans who appreciate the attempt to fit the Crusaders into VDC and are interested in knowing where the blog will be going with this. It helps that the blog will occasionally shift back to answering questions in between events from time to time. Regardless, VDC at this time makes up the vast majority of the content on that blog, giving making it hard to avoid while looking through the blog.

* 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.
