* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Claudius' behavior in the last act of the books. Was he only feigning indifference, as the StoppedCaring entry suggests, or was he passive-aggressively grooming Nero as his revenge on Rome for his generally miserable life?

** 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.

* CompleteMonster: Emperor UsefulNotes/{{Caligula}} not only poisons his own father and assists in the murders of others, but when he inherits the throne of Rome, he turns the whole empire into a realm of terror and debauchery, having people murdered on insane whims (including his 12-year-old cousin and co-heir Gemellus for having a persistent cough), and forcing their wives to participate in twisted orgies against their will. He also [[TraumaticCSection cuts open his sister Drusilla to devour her unborn child]]. [[BrotherSisterIncest His child, no less.]] He is even repeatedly addressed as "Monster" in a sort of weird, affectionate way by Livia, his great-grandmother.

** Caligula, murderous bastard that he is, is clearly suffering and terrified when he suffers his mental breakdown. Even later, he tells Claudius about how he barely sleeps at night, and seems almost aware that something about him is terribly wrong.

** As much as an asshole as Tiberius is, it's kind of hard not to pity him when he learns that his son had been murdered by his allegedly "trustworthy" advisor. Also he never really wanted to be emperor in the first place and was pushed into it by his mother...whose plans necessitated forcing him to divorce the woman he was deeply in love with.
