* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct: The series is proof that Creaotr/BrianBlessed is occasionally capable of understated acting. Between this and not having a beard, he's almost unrecognizable to people who know his later work.

** Livilla crosses it when she attempts to [[spoiler:poison her own daughter]] out of jealousy over Sejanus.
** Messalina crosses this when her schemes drive Appius Silanus to his death.
** Macro crosses the horizon in a big way after usurping Sejanus's power, as he then conducts a bloody purge on all of Sejanus's loved ones and supporters, massacring many in the street and personally seeing that Sejanus's daughter is raped and then killed.

** Livilla crosses it This is a series populated by devious conniving bastards who get away with some pretty horrible acts, but one of the worst dog-raping examples is provided by PraetorianGuard captain [[BastardUnderstudy Macro]] when she attempts to [[spoiler:poison her own daughter]] his predecessor Sejanus falls out of jealousy over Sejanus.
** Messalina crosses this when her schemes drive Appius Silanus to his death.

favor with the Emperor. Macro crosses the horizon in a big way after usurping Sejanus's power, as he then conducts kicks off a bloody purge of everyone even remotely connected with Sejanus. Rome's streets run red, but the icing on all the cake is when he orders the death of Sejanus's loved ones and supporters, massacring many in the street and personally seeing (very) young daughter. An officer reminds him that Sejanus's daughter is raped it's unlawful to execute a virgin. His response? "Then make sure she's not a virgin when you kill her, now GET ON WITH IT!"
** [[TheCaligula Caligula]] wasn't a great guy to begin with. He had already killed a lot of people, [[SelfMadeOrphan including Germanicus]], before becoming Emperor and deciding he was [[AGodAmI a god.]] But he didn't go fully [[AxCrazy off the deep end]] until he cut his [[BrotherSisterIncest wife]] open and [[EatsBabies ate]] their unborn child.
** Messalina might have cheated on her husband and become the biggest whore in Rome. And yeah, wanting to sleep with her stepfather,
and then killed. accusing him of trying to rape her when he rejected her, sure was bad. But she didn't reach the Moral Event Horizon until she threatened her own mother!

** Drusus's horse fell on him and trapped his leg against a sharp rock tearing it. We see the hideous open gangrenous gash on his leg and the make-up team did a great job at making it as disgusting as possible.
