* GodModeSue: Priscilla. [[spoiler: She's so incredibly powerful that no one can beat her, that even a piece of her arm is enough to possess Abyssal level Awakened Beings, and she hasn't lost a. Single. Battle.]] Gets quite annoying how the goal Clare had set for herself is unattainable with these odds.
** Lets make it clear: she's making ''[[Manga/{{Naruto}} Madara fucking Uchiha]]'' have a harder time against opponents than Priscilla does. Priscilla even survives ''being cut up into tiny chunks''! To clarify: [[spoiler:while pretty much all of the characters have been sliced and diced in some way at one point or another, Priscilla's ''head'' is also sliced into tiny chunks. And somehow she manages to get to Cassandra's corpse, at least a good hundred feet or more away, and start chowing down. Despite having been in bite-sized pieces.]] [[FlatWhat What]].
*** [[spoiler:And she has NOTHING on Teresa, who is taking easy defeating her and gives Priscilla plenty of room for more power ups instead of killing her on the spot, because no matter what Priscilla does, Teresa is shown to be superior to her.]]

The only person who didn't loathe or fear her, [[spoiler:the nameless #35, was killed in a disgusting, brutal, and completely senseless manner due to a certain ManipulativeBitch's machinations]]. ''Then'', she was bloodily executed by her fellow Claymores. And on top of that, she was resurrected, brainwashed, sicked on her fellow warriors, and [[spoiler:eventually awakened, tricked to fight Priscilla--only to be devoured by her just as the Ghosts seemed to have offed her for good]].

Added DiffLines:

*** We get mention of "failed warriors making it into the ranks", like Clarice. The only shock other Claymores display is that they "let one in," not that a "failed" warrior existed, which raises the question of just how many "failed" warriors never make it past training, and what happens to them...
*** A bonus chapter reveals that a final test for each batch of Claymores involves a life-or-death situation, and only the ones who live pass the test. So at least we know what happens to those who fail the final test, but still no insight to the rest of the TrainingFromHell...

* CompleteMonster: [[DarkActionGirl Roxanne of Love and Hate]], the former greatest warrior and "Number One" of the Organization, differs from the majority of other villains in the series by being a cruel, violent {{sadist}}. Initially a low ranking warrior, Roxanne began to [[ManipulativeBastard seduce, befriend]] and eventually murder stronger warriors after stealing their techniques. Eventually, she set her sights on Number One Cassandra, but when she saw Cassandra's technique, she spitefully decided she hated it and gave Cassandra the hated name "Dust-Eater." She later set up Roxanne's only friend to die a torturous death at the hands of a monstrous Awakened Being and mocked Cassandra that the other warrior had looked as if she had "enjoyed" the beast playing with her, so interfering wouldn't have been right. Just as Roxanne had known she would, Cassandra snapped and attacked her. Roxanne used the other 45 warriors as [[HumanShield shields]], relishing in their fear of Cassandra and cackling how hideous Cassandra's abilities were. When Cassandra finally reached Roxanne, Roxanne gleefully impaled her head with the pommel of her sword.

** Isley's a bit more of a [[CoolHorse literal example,]] but his cool looks (both Awakened and not), awesome fighting style, and overall good treatment of Raki won him quite a lot of fans.
** [[AffablyEvil Riful]] and [[DumbMuscle Dauf's]] [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther interesting relationship]] and strength made them a LoveToHate due to fans.
* FoeYay: EPIC amounts of it between Cassandra and Roxanne. Also, Clare and Ophelia, though mostly from Ophelia's side
