*** Golden Opportunities, which the Challenge of the Immortals helped introduce. Some fans dislike Chikara's version of Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s Money in the Bank, others consider it a worthwhile addition, and still others don't mind it but wish that the rules for it would've been laid out from the beginning. (See the N_R_G entry under CreatorsPet for an incident caused by the rules not being set out, which really annoyed fans.) Some even disliked champions and those with Golden Opportunities already being entered in a battle royale for another, citing that they had no use for them.

** N_R_G. Once just a rookie team, their booking became inexplicably strong to the point where they've been a constant presence in main event multi-person matches, a product placement deal got them to the Campeonatos de Parejas, and they soon began participating in Four Corner Elimination Tag matches and shutting out potential challengers. Race Jaxon being extra obnoxious in blogs did not help their cause any. Mike Quackenbush's love of early 90's [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]] and gimmicks like High Energy (of which N_R_G is arguably a tribute) is very well known.
*** Made even worse by Quackenbush "disputing" N_R_G's title loss via Golden Opportunity and stripping perennial favorites Los Ice Creams of the Campeonatos de Parejas. Many fans rallied behind Los Ice Creams, citing that Quackenbush had never specified that the Golden Opportunity could not be used to take the titles in one fall and speculating if he would've "disputed" the change if it had been a team other than N_R_G on the receiving end.



** N_R_G is starting to get this way with some fans, as their booking has become inexplicably strong to the point where they're a constant presence in main event multi-person matches, a product placement deal got them to the Campeonatos de Parejas, and they've begun participating in Four Corner Elimination Tag matches and shutting out potential challengers.



* TheWoobie: Archibald Peck at Chikarasaurus Rex... Not only does he lose a loser leaves town match to Mr. Touchdown, he has to watch Veronica kiss him. The final shot of the show is of him sadly walking away from the stadium.

*** Came completely full circle for them five years later at King of Trios '14, as their match against the Gentleman's Club was very well-received by fans to the point of "Match of the Year" chants.

** The Challenge of the Immortals tournament broke them again. Some loved how everything had settled down after the shutdown and the Flood, while others thought it boring and dragging and still others wanted more focus on the bits of plot going on around it. It was certainly not helped that, for a good portion of the tournament, no official point totals were provided by Chikara, leading to mass confusion and many fans struggling to keep sense of it all.

* DracoInLeatherPants: [=UltraMantis=] Black. At ''Pick Up Or Delivery'', April 9, 2004, [=BLKOUT=] (Joker and Sabian) d. [=UltraMantis=] and Mister Zero when [=UltraMantis=] turned heel and told [=BLKOUT=], "Be my guest," with Joker pinning Zero after a Sabian top-rope senton. Someone in the crowd said, "You're supposed to be a {{Superhero}}." [=UltraMantis=] got on the mic and ran down Zero and the fans, declared [[ThatManIsDead "[=UltraMantis=] is dead"]], changed his mask and said that he was now [=UltraMantis=] Black, and the fans said "Thank God." Thus, after he had blatantly screwed over his own partner, costing his team the win, and verbally buried Zero and the fans and said that he was sick of the human species, it turned out the fans actually ''preferred'' him as a heel.
