* HilariousInHindsight: A lot of the characterization of post-retcon Nissa is similar to that of the fan character Daneera from ''Fanfic/WarOfTheWheels'', written ''years'' earlier.

** The Gatewatch. While the individual members aren't very hated themselves, Jace aside, the Gatewatch team has become very much hated, mostly for taking up far too much of the spotlight from the planes and their inhabitants, the supposed main focus of the sets. It certainly doesn't help that many consider the writing quality of the stories featuring the Gatewatch to be far inferior to the stories not featuring them, and that many have cynically noted that they only came into being after the popularity of ''[[MarvelCinematicUniverse The Avengers]] and the deal for a ''Magic'' movie. Eventually, probably due to negative feedback, Wizards decided to put less focus on the Gatewatch than before starting with Hour of Devestation.

** [[EvilSorcerer Nicol Bolas]], one of the next {{Big Bad}}s, is an [[OurDragonsAreDifferent elder dragon]] Planeswalker over 25,000 years old who loses his near-limitless power when the nature of the Planeswalker Spark is changed, and dedicates himself to getting it back at any cost. A master of red, blue, and black magic, Bolas excels at [[MindRape breaking minds]] and [[TheChessmaster bending people into submission]]. He collides the five worlds of Alara into each other in an attempt to absorb the energy released. On Zendikar, he manipulates three Planeswalkers into setting free the [[EldritchAbomination Eldrazi Titans]]. As New Phyrexia grows on Mirrodin, he sends an envoy to reach out to the blossoming parasitic plane in the form of Tezzeret, a Planeswalker whose mind Bolas has broken and enslaved. He travels the Blind Eternities, endangering one world after another with each scheme in his quest to regain omnipotence.

In addition to all this, in ''Emperor's Fist'' he outright boasts about causing genocide [[ForTheEvulz for shits and giggles]].

* MoralEventHorizon: During his exile, Yawgmoth visited several civilizations and ended up destroying them all with plagues he brewed up himself. In one case, he did it ''just to see what would happen.''

** Nahiri might had been [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds justified]] in feeling betrayed by Sorin. However, her revenge was ultimately the ''genocide of an entire plane'' by [[spoiler:Eldrazi assimilation]] - part of which resulted in the angelic guardians of the plane turning into twisted monsters slaughtering those they once protected, a gravity that has had them described as the biggest victims of ''Shadows over Innistrad'' - just to get at ''one'' person. This moment was pivotal into turning her into a FallenHero.
