* MemeticMolester: Gaia, ''Gaia'', '''''GAIA'''''. The way she's getting all touchy feely on Zeus while [[spoiler:cursing his love life]] is down right disturbing; make much worse with the implication she's touching his, ehem, "private part". ''And'' even much worse with her calling herself "the mother of all living things", which included Zeus himself. Many readers couldn't stop looking for the BrainBleach.

** The Trow iron warriors in ''Myth III''. Remember how the Trow in the first two games were capable of killing several of your best units even when surrounded, were too fast to outrun, but only showed up in small numbers so it was a fair challenge? ''These'' guys are kind of like that, except armored like a tank and carrying a Big Freaking Hammer, which liquefies ''several'' units with each blow. They also have a ton of HP and don't turn to stone until it's fully depleted. You also have no special abilities or giant units of your own to counter them. They frequently come at you in pairs and there are levels with more than ten of them. Ironically, the only way to beat them is to exploit the equally broken AI, which doesn't realise that Trow now move, turn and attack too slow to ever catch or hit some units and will gladly run in circles after a lone Heron Guard while your archers and dwarfs rape them ever so slowly. Worst of all this is how the developers ''intended'' you to beat them. Way to completely take the fun out of the game.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The main complaint about ''Myth III'', aside from the horrendous number of bugs, was that it just doesn't feel like a ''Myth'' game with the perspective switch from the desperate average soldier to the fearless conquering hero. The goofy looking cutscenes and drawings, bland level design and addition of magic-users from races that weren't supposed to have the intelligence for it didn't help either. Turning the Trow from the iconic [[LightningBruiser fast and deadly juggernauts]] into [[GameBreaker completely broken]] [[MightyGlacier sluggish]] [[IdiotAI retards]] and then making them the main enemy for several levels in a row was the last straw for most fans.

** Cronus' brothers only remained by his side and aid him control the world because they believed that, with time, the Cronus they used to know would return. After realizing that their little brother would never return out of the crazy overlord he has become, all of them step out of Zeus' way.
* {{Retcon}}: In the final chapter of ''A Promise'', Zeus said to Athena that Nike wanted to be with her to protect her on her mother's place. But in the ''Distillation'' omake, Nike was given to her by Zeus as a birthday gift.

** The whole Olympian siblings. Their dad got insane, Hades was forced to kill his mom, Zeus ''watched'' his mom being decapitated, the rest of the sibling were trapped in crystals by their father. After the war, Zeus lost his first love, declared he would hate Hades forever (and take note, Hades was his favorite brother) and now has a whole world over his young sholders. Hades is hated by his little brother and exiled [[spoiler:and he's fine wih it because he considers Zeus' hate will make him strong]]. Poseidon suffers for seeing his brothers suffering like they do, Demeter only gets to see Hades once in a while [[spoiler:and then dies]]. Rhea is kinda of a LoveMartyr under her ClingyJealousGirl exterior and Hestia, despite being the second older sibling can't do much to help her younger siblings but provide them a place for solace.

* CryForTheDevil: Pleny of it in ''A Promise''.
** Cronus' death is painted as very tragic: a man who went paranoid about losing his throne to the point of negleting his children and losing the love of his life, Rhea. His last moments are him musing how Gaia will not take him back and won't be reunited with Rhea in death. Many readers can't help but pity the guy.

** Poseida. [[spoiler:She was made believe that she was cursed and was the cause of her mother's illness for a fake priest that wanted to fool her into serve him. When she discovers that her mother died, she considered she had no other reason to live and killed herself. Luckily, [[EarnYourHappyEnding she was brought back from the dead as a Nereid, her horrible past erased and got to marry the kindest Olympian brother, Poseidon]].
