* CrowningMomentOfAwesome:
** When Indra struck Garuda with the Vajra, [[StoneWall it did not even scratch him]]. However, Garuda dropped a ''single'' feather to show his respect to Vajra for the attempt. It was Shiva's gift to Indra.
** Indra himself has one in ''Rig Veda''. A newborn god, Indra drunk a large volume of Soma to gain enough power to defeat Vritra, the great dragon. After taking the Vajra, he asked Vishnu to create a whole battlefield for the upcoming battle. Before confronting his nemesis, Indra destroyed 99 fortresses of Vritra, ''all'' of them. For killing the dragon that kept all water from the world itself, all Indra suffered was a broken jaw.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The Pandava brothers, especially [[JerkAss Arjuna]].

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The Pandava brothers, MoralEventHorizon:
** Guru Drona asking for tribal boy Ekalavya's thumb as a guru dakshina, so that Ekalavya is no longer the best archer and Arjuna could pass the former. It's hard to sympathize with Drona after that,
especially [[JerkAss Arjuna]].when he refuses to teach lower caste boys like Karna for fear of history repeating itself.
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic:
** The Pandava brothers, especially [[JerkAss Arjuna]]. Arjuna as a kid wanted to be the best archer, which his guru Drona promised he would become, and he complained when a tribal boy Ekalavya surpassed him. Not to mention that he [[KickTheDog mocks Karna]], a "charioteer's son," for being of a lower caste. They [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone are shocked]] when they learn that Karna is their brother after the battle, and Arjuna afterward TookALevelInKindness, but still!

* AuthorsSavingThrow:
** Karna, an HonorBeforeReason [[PunchClockVillain servant]] to the wicked Duryodhana, was cursed by his guru Parashurama to have the mantras that he learned fail him. The reason? Karna outed himself as a kshatriya (which even he did not know) while Parashurama was resting on his lap and an insect bit the Karna, drawing blood. Later on, in the Mahabharata, Parashurama comes to Karna in a vision and explains that his death by said curse is fated, and that if Duryodhana wins then evil will fall on the land. This allows Karna to FaceDeathWithDignity, so it could be a form of LetThemDieHappy.

* FanFavorite: Krishna, to the point where He has sects that worship him, and him alone, to the exclusion of the rest of the avatars.
