* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Dies Horribly is supposed to be viewed as TheWoobie because he's destined to ... well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin die horribly]]. Except, in the world of Goblins ''most'' of the characters who die do so quite horribly, including most of the goblin war camp being slaughtered by adventurers, and K'Sellis (who was part of Dies's party) having one of the most [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath Family Unfriendly Deaths]] in the comic. Moreover, most monstrous characters know full well they will probably die horribly one day, especially if they willingly engage player characters, and are still able to act brave and noble and lead rich lives, while Dies Horribly constantly acts like a coward and moans about his fate (even though at one point he tries to convince Fox he's accepted his fate already). It sometimes comes to the point where you really wish someone would just smack Dies across the head and tell him "just because you're going to die horribly, doesn't mean you have to ''live'' horribly!"

** And now at the end of Minmax and company dungeon crawls it just gets worse. [[spoiler:Minmax and Kin's relationship gets a reset through actions of a third part, retconing their development to each other away, with a rape allegory during their "break up" as a bonus.]]

** [[BigBadWannabe Dellyn Goblinslayer]], ranger and captain of Brassmoon city's Elite Guard, is a highly sadistic TortureTechnician and {{Fantastic Racis|m}}t whose hobby was capturing live monsters, then vivisecting them to learn their weaknesses. One of Dellyn's preferred tortures was using knives designed to cause certain monsters the most agony imaginable in order to permanently mutilate them by carving insults into their skin. Other tortures included amputating limbs and, in one instance, flaying the skin off of a monster's back so that her spine was clearly visible. Planning on having his Elite Guards supplant Brassmoon's current guard to increase his political power, and mistakenly believing that a goblin army was ready to attack the city, Dellyn arranged a public execution for the goblin [[spoiler:Fumbles]], who he had mutilated earlier, in order to lure the other goblins out of hiding. Once they did so, Dellyn planned on his guards annihilating the "invading forces" so that the city would back his political play. When one of his men told him that many innocent bystanders would be caught in the crossfire, [[LackOfEmpathy Dellyn was happy]], noting that this would only make the rest of the citizens more grateful for showing them what's at risk. Dellyn also had a Yuan-Ti slave named Kin, who he abducted then raped and beat on a nightly basis, repeatedly reducing her to her last hitpoint before reviving her with healing potions. Ultimately Dellyn was nothing more than a petty {{sadist}} whose desire was to be [[GloryHound worshipped as a heroic savior]] by the people he'd sacrifice without a second thought.
