* RootingForTheEmpire: The fight between the Loyalist Praetorians and the Resistance was supposed to be various shades of grey for the Going Rogue expansion, with logic being more or less "At what point is peace oppressive and and what point is a rebel cause anarchy"; But Emperor Cole and his Praetors with possible exception of [[TokenGoodTeammate Praetor White]] are so corrupt/insane that you really can't fault the rebels for anything they do even when blatant terrorism is on the menu.
** As Lord Recluse points out to Emperor Cole, he is an unapologetic CardCarryingVillain and even '''he''' is supported by the populace once they find out the sort of things Cole was doing. He literally marches into the city with his army of doom, stating he is there turn it into a Darwinian Society and is cheered on for it.
** Even prior to Praetoria this was the case for many. The Rogue Isles are a playground of scum and villainy, but there is zero pretense as to what they are. It is a [[SocialDarwinist Social Darwinist's]] utopia, dedicated to hedonism in which AssKickingEqualsAuthority. After looking at the conspiracies, corruption and in some cases stupidity that pops up in through-out Paragon law-making, [[StatusQuoIsGod to maintain the status-quo]], it is hard not to root for the society that is meant breed criminals as opposed to the one that accidentally does it due to a broken system.

* ThatOneBoss: Night Widows have high damage output and the very annoying ability to blind players (now reduced, thankfully), as well as very strong recharge debuffs. Mu Guardians heal their allies and heavily drain a player's endurance. Tarantula Mistresses and Queens combine blinding, strong recharge debuffs and very high damage output of the rarely resisted Psychic type.
** A much, ''much'' earlier example would be the Headmen Swordsmen in ''The Lost'' enemy group. They have [[{{BFS}} giant swords]] they pull out of [[{{Hammerspace}} nowhere]], possibly [[AssPull their asses]], that deal insane damage. Needless to say, Headman Swordsmen can be a pain for [[TheBerserker Scrappers]], who are melee-based and not that good in defense, as well as [[{{Ninja}} Stalkers]].
** The Arachnos Patrons. '''Especially''' to members of their own arch-type who serve under, and ultimately need to fight them.
*** Ghost Widow is a Dominator who has '''heavy''' [[PsychicBlockDefense resistance to control effects]]. - With control moves rendered pretty much useless all a Dominator can do is keep at a distance and peck away at her health.
*** Black Scorpion is a Brute who could [[MadeOfIron take a few hundred missiles to the face without being fazed]]. - Which makes a battle of brawn a very big uphill battle for another Brute.
*** Mako is a Stalker and well... The game devs put a safety measure on enemies to prevent them from one-shotting anyone less than five levels away from them.... Mako is the only boss in the game that '''[[OneHitKill does not]]''' have this feature! - So if you are a Stalker and will only get one shot off before he sees you...
*** Scirocco is a Corrupter who has long range [[ManaDrain endurance drain]] moves and personal knock-back armor. - Particularly devastating to Corrupters who need to ration their endurance.
