*** Heck, Methos has survived for ''five thousand years''. The amount of things he's seen and done in that time, and how he's kept himself alive with everyone wanting a piece of the oldest Immortal (and his stated intention to keep on surviving no matter what) means his every action is open to this trope.

** Nefetiri in "The Pharaoh's Daughter": [[spoiler: She carried a 2000 year grudge against a former Roman General, who was also an immortal, named Constantine. Blaming him for events out of his control (the peace between Egypt and Rome failing and Cleopatra's eventual suicide) she killed his current lover in cold blood since she was his 'entire world'. Infuriated, Duncan kicks her out and she goes to confront Constantine on Holy Ground, forcing Duncan to fight her away from it. When Duncan managed to get the upper hand, offering her one last chance for a new future based on love instead of manipulation? She stabbed him through the heart, literally. Duncan was forced to cut off her head to stop her. If she wasn't stopped, she was ''well'' on her way to [[CompleteMonster Complete Monsterdom]].]]

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Richie does get better over the course of the series. And the fans tend to agree that killing off Richie was the show's Jump the Shark moment.
