** [[spoiler:Mother Mallum, who has a [[MemeticMutation pillar]] [[DroppedABridgeOnHim dropped on her]]; your own character never battles her.]]

to:

** [[spoiler:Mother Mallum, the Sea Slug Queen, who has turns out to be a PuzzleBoss who dies when a secondary character drops a [[MemeticMutation pillar]] [[DroppedABridgeOnHim dropped on her]]; your own character never battles her.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Prince Brand and Princess Astrid, the heirs of Miscellania whom your character becomes engaged to (Brand for women, Astrid for men) in "Throne of Miscellania." While in-universe the marriage is supposed to be a political one to legitimize your claim as regent of the eponymous throne, many players became [[VideogameCaringPotential legitimately fond of them]] [[spoiler: and were genuinely saddened when ''both'' fall victim to the CartwrightCurse in "Blood Runs Deep." "Nomad's Elegy" provides some closure for them]].


Added DiffLines:

** "River of Blood," the Vampyre finale, was received much better than the preceding examples, but still ran into some criticism for [[RiddleForTheAges leaving several plot points ambiguous]] and [[spoiler: having a SurprisinglyHappyEnding]]. [[WordOfGod The post-update Q&A]] stated that both these things were intended from the beginning.

** Despite this, the first major battle between Saradomin and Zamorak still managed to blow a large crater into Lumbridge Forest. They could still destroy the world by fighting, only little-by-little rather than in one fell swoop.

** Despite this, the first major battle between Saradomin and Zamorak still managed to blow a large crater into Lumbridge Forest. They could still destroy the world by fighting, only little-by-little rather than in one fell swoop. The God Wars did, after all, create/destroy the Wilderness, and it's far from inconceivable they could eventually and gradually do the same to the rest of Gielinor...

* BadassDecay: [[PowerTrio Guthix, Saradomin and Zamorak]], coinciding with their collective {{retcon}} from [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm abstract]], [[TheOmnipotent nigh-omnipotent]] [[PowersThatBe godly entities]] to essentially [[PhysicalGod super-powered mortals]]. Similarly, protection prayers were {{nerf}}ed from boss-dominating GameBreaker abilities to be only 50% effective at best. Considering that they nearly [[ApocalypseHow wrecked the whole of Gielinor]] the last time they fought, Saradomin, Zamorak, Armadyl and Bandos are surprisingly small and unimposing in-game. WordOfGod confirms this is due to to them being ShroudedInMyth in-universe; they're legitimately extremely powerful, but being disappeared for millennia their stories evolved to portray them as even stronger, particularly Saradomin, whose cult evolved into borderline monotheism with Zamorak as an inferior {{Satan}}-figure.

** Loads of these now exist in Dungeoneering. [[AnIcePerson Astea Frostweb]] is relatively low-level, but she freezes you in place, making it annoying to fight her with melee, and puts up prayers that make her immune to certain types of damage.

It doesn't help that she [[FlunkyBoss frequently summons ice spiders]] to help her, especially if you decide to alternate between ranged and magic.

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: The supposed penalty for losing the third World Event, Tuska Comes, was [[ApocalypseHow the destruction of Gilenor]]. Literally ''no one'' thought that Jagex would go through with it, and wanted to throw the event just to see what would happen. Sadly, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen we never found out]].

** Has Saradomin really [[TookALevelInKindness taken a few levels in kindness]] and feels regret for his earlier arrogant actions? Or is he just trying to get on the PlayerCharacter's good side?

** Most of the Gods. For every single major deity, you will find players who [[KnightTemplar fanatically venerate their philosophies]] while you will find others who consider the god in having long since passed the MoralEventHorizon.
** The Signature Heroes were designed to be are popular, invoking classic fantasy archetypes, starring in some well designed quests to sell the game to new players. They have been successful in doing so, however they have failed to serve their purpose as adventures on par with the PlayerCharacter, seeming more like one-offs instead. For players that were around before the heroes were added, there is the added insult of the heroes treating them like they're newbies despite predating the characters. Whats more, even Jagex seems to be unsure about what to do with them since the [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore Sixth age]] began, with one even being killed off.

On the other hand, there are many players who have long since lost patience with his [[KickTheDog abject cruelty]], his [[ConsummateLiar continual lies]] and his [[SpotlightStealingSquad constant domination of Sixth Age storylines]], and can't wait until he is [[ShutUpHannibal finally taken down once and for all]].
