Added DiffLines:

** For much of the series Bigby maintains his status under the General Amnesty via generous LoopholeAbuse. Notably, he swears to kill numerous people, but then declares his vengeance suspended until some unknown later time. It seems like those Fables would have been obvious targets when he CameBackWrong. Instead, he's [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]


Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: If you're pro-choice Frau Totenkinder ([[CompleteMonster at least after her backstory]]) probably comes across as somewhere between a PragmaticHero, RetiredMonster, and OnlySaneMan. Particularly when you consider that everyone in Fabletown would likely be dead a dozen times over if she'd lost her power.

Added DiffLines:

* SeasonalRot: The last three-four issues or so were considered by many to not be as equally strong as the rest of the series.

** In a meta example, with ''Series/OnceUponATime''.

to:

** In With ''Series/OnceUponATime'' due to both having the initial high-concept of "fairy tale characters trapped in the modern world". However, this was mostly in the run-up to ''Once Upon A Time'' being first broadcast, it dropped quite a meta example, with ''Series/OnceUponATime''.lot when the first few episodes of the TV show made it clear how significantly different the actual plots and styles of the works were.

** Some consider Jack [[spoiler:taking advantage of an emotionally devastated Rose Red in order to have sex with her]] in ''The Great Fables Crossover'' to be the point where he stops being the guy you love to hate, causing the reader to just hate him instead. On the other hand, given [[spoiler:his treatment of the Snow Queen]], he was a villain nearly from the very beginning. His worst act may have been selling his own son to demons to save his own skin.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: The Cubs in Toyland arc. The toys reveal that Toyland is a version of hell for toys who killed their owners and the toys accept the charge, with Therese outright calling them killers. But in every example they give, the 'crimes' of the toys are thing like being made of flammable material.

** When Hansel and Gretel were captured as children by Frau Totenkinder, who was trying to sacrifice their lives to demons for youth and power, they fought back and burned her alive in her own oven. Hansel found he enjoyed the sight of watching witches burn. With this new-found bloodlust, Hansel set out to make as many witches suffer as he could, not caring that all too often, victims of his witch hunts were innocent girls. Hansel subjects them to torture and deaths for his own gratification without a twinge of remorse. His crowning moment of evil is after he discovers Gretel had been taking an interest in magic. He murdered her on the spot before fleeing the Fable community to align himself with their great adversary as his Inquisitor general, putting himself in charge of hunting down those who might prove disloyal to the Empire. Hansel is one of the Empire's most feared and zealous leaders who uses his position to satisfy his need for torture and domination.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: This bounds to happen whenever the comic reviewed which horrible actions one of the "[[DesignatedHero hero]]" of the story arc committed in their past. This is especially prevalent to any stories that starring Jack, Bigby and even Snow White to a lesser extend.
* DesignatedHero: The Fables can sometimes get a tad... extreme in their attempts to keep hidden. The Tommy Sharp incident is a good example. Add to that how many of them are [[{{Hypocrite}} massive]] [[MoralDissonance hypocrites]] and you get some characters that are the embodiment the GoodIsNotNice trope.

* BaseBreaker: Jack to extremes. Views shift from LoveableRogue to monster virtually identical to Max Piper.

** [[spoiler:Darien's]] death in "Cubs in Toyland". It really hits hit home when [[spoiler:right before sacrificing himself, he cries and asks why he has to die when he's still just a kid, who never got to ''do'' anything yet.]]

** In some ways, [[spoiler: Darien Wolf is wasted because, as he said, he was only a kid and didn't get a chance to do much. While he did a HeroicScrafice, was the storyline with the toys necessary in the long run?]]
