* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: House is the ''[[TropeCodifier ultimate]]'' example of DrJerk (and a JerkSue at that) while one of the ongoing arcs of the series is that he is an incredibly toxic influence on anybody who has to deal with him for an extended period of time (which turns ''everybody else in the cast'' into a DrJerk, and a seriously hostile and backstabbing one at that in various examples), and while many people are saved by them there is the InferredHolocaust of how much their lives will be destroyed (in the long or short term) by the secrets that House forces them to disclose... after some time it may be pretty hard to watch.

* In Season 4, when a patient is seeing dead people everywhere, Amber makes a comment about seeing ghosts. For the rest of the series [[spoiler: after she dies, she becomes "Gazoo" to House]]. --> If the ghost of a many you killed doesn't screw with your head, there's something wrong with your head.

*** [[spoiler:Did you really think they'd ''actually'' get rid of Chase, Cameron, and Foreman when House fired them]] in the last episode?

*** [[spoiler:Did Did you really think they'd ''actually'' get rid of Chase, Cameron, and Foreman when House fired them]] them in the last episode?episode? **** Though Chase and Cameron did "stay fired" in the sense of being off of House's team for over a season-- they just remained at other jobs in the hospital and were in many episodes at least briefly-- and except for a brief period Cameron was never a member of House's team again. That was probably more of an aversion of StatusQuoIsGod than most fans expected.

More of the same
* InformedWrongness: In the first season's Vogler arc, everybody is pissed off with House because he wouldn't give official praise to a drug produced by Vogler's firm, which is just an "improved" version of an older drug, only much more expensive. [[WhatTheHellHero Seriously heroes, wtf?]] First, Vogler was ''forcing'' a doctor into praising his ''commercial'' product. Second, tricking patients into paying more than necessary for a ''medicine'' they ''need'' is still unethical even if the expensive version also works. Third, House initially agreed to do it, but in the end couldn't bring himself to, which was shown to be not out of spite but out of moral obligation. Vogler was not just being bossy or annoying, he was being downright ''immoral''. And had House gone along, this would have not been the last time Vogler would have forced him to lie to firther Vogler's professional interests. House was acting according to his professional integrity by standing up to him, but he got smacked for it. (Compare and contrast season three's Tritter arc, where the antagonist is similarly petty and unfair, but House is actually making it worse by being an actual selfish prick, and actually brought the problems on himself by being a JerkAss in the first place; Tritter was wrong only because he was extracting DisproportionateRetribution.)
