** The Deer in the Root of the Problem arc. aIt's hard to tell if the forest is attacking Ponyville and Canterlot autonomously, or if the Deer deliberately steered the new growth towards who we know to be innocent people. Combine this with FantasticRacism, some interpret them as ecoterrorists at best, and militaristic warmongers looking for an excuse to invade at worst.

** Artist Jay Fosgitt has come under fire for a couple of his ''Friends Forever'' issues. In #22, he used a piece of clip art available on the Web as a pony's cutie mark. Then, in #24, he drew a couple of griffon characters from the show episode "The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone" in such a way as to be completely unrecognizable. Since this issue went on sale nearly eight months after the episode premiered, fans saw the change as evidence of Fosgitt's laziness and/or lack of interest in the show. Georgia Ball, the writer for #24, made her annoyance over his work known and [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings subsequently announced that she had no plans to do any more writing for the MLP comics]].

** Writer Tedly Anderson became this due to a highly questionable cameo and some comments he did on some forums and tumblr following the 2014 Annual. The highly polarizing 2014 Holiday Special certainly didn't help. On the other hand, the Manehattan Mysteries arc and the Micro and Friends Forever issues he has written were generally liked.

* InternetBackdraft: Tedly Anderson caused this in several forums, including IDW's own, with the revelation that he, in the 2014 "Power Ponies"-themed Annual issue canonized dragondicks, a rather polarizing figure in the fandom, known for her vocal criticisms of it, specially men in the fandom. It was aggravated when his defense was that dragondicks' work and political views are just satire.

*** Same issue, the Nightmare Forces speculate that Fluttershy would be most susceptible [[CorruptTheCutie to their influence]]. The season 5 opener has the the Mane 6 ''exploit'' her seeming susceptibility to best the BigBad, as if they weren't [[UnderestimatingBadassery underestimating her enough]].
** In issue 17, Celestia and Starswirl travelled to an alternate universe where Dinosaurus still roam and they encountered Fluttershy's Tyrannosaurus Rex counterpart, [[http://fav.me/d65mwj9 this fan comic]] was made a year before issue 17 was released

** While the {{Retcon}} to [[DemonicPossession Nightmare Moons nature]] has been mixed, her latest incarnation, [[spoiler:Nightmare Rarity]], is easily the most popular thing to come out of the comics, impressive given she only appears halfway through her story and is a [[WalkingSpoiler huge spoiler]]. Helping is that she has a [[EvilIsCool cool,]] [[EvilIsSexy attractive]] character design, [[LampshadeHanging is savvy enough to know it]] [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy and pose a serious threat]] despite lacking her [[PhysicalGod previous incarnations power]], and some of the comics most epic and emotional moments came out of her confrontation.

** ''Siege of the Crystal Empire'' was criticized for the [[RonTheDeathEater excessively evil characterizations of Flim and Flam]]. Come the Season 5 finale, it's revealed they caused a BadFuture ''worse'' than Sombra's or Chrysalis', [[NotSoHarmlessVillain causing one to second guess if it weren't on to something]].

* RonTheDeathEater: Many feel this about Iron Will in Issue 34. Not only is he suddenly a villain (something he'd ''never'' been before), he physically subdues ponies and ''proudly'' [[spoiler:steals the Crystal Heart.]] This is on top of teaming with ''Queen Chrysalis'', who is a wanted criminal who'd be serving a thousand years in a maximum security prison if she hadn't escaped, which would ruin any credibility he has as a motivational speaker. Gets worse in Issue 35 were he [[spoiler:teams up with ''King Sombra'']] and helps imprison Applejack. When he actually shows regret, he [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse inexplicably vanished]], loosing the chance to redeem himself.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Angel saves the whole town, which he'll never get any recognition for. We can probably consider his Scrappy moments paid back in full after this.

** Cassie the Kelpie, starting from how [[StoryBreakerPower overpowered]] her ability to brainwash all of Ponyville (including the Mane 6) was, and ending with her [[KarmaHoudini getting away scots-free once "defeated"]] and she explained her motives, without getting called out for not doing so sooner. That she debuted around the same time as [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks the Dazzlings]], whom had the same, but weaker, powers, and proved more likable in spite of [[LoveToHate (or because of)]] their being eviler made Cassie come off as a shallow MarySue, undeserving of how well off the story put her.
