** The Grand Exchange update jingle. There's nothing more satisfying than knowing that your items have been sold.

** So, you think [[ThatOneBoss Nomad]], [[GoddamnedBoss Linza the Disgraced]], and [[MonsterClown Gregorovic]] are tough enough bosses by themselves? Have fun facing '''''all three of them at once''''' in the penultimate boss fight of "Sliske's Endgame". And if they weren't powerful enough already, they now [[FakeDifficulty gain additional abilities and buffs]] as you defeat them one-by-one.

** Ashdale, the new tutorial, due to setting the start of the player's adventure in the Sixth Age, essentially meaning all Fifth Age content could not have happened, despite the players actions being a huge part of why the Sixth Age even began in the first place.

** A fan petition started after 'Sliske's Endgame' for renaming ''Akrisae The Doomed'' into ''Akrisae The Forgotten'' after it was revealed that the developers actually had forgotten about him. Hence why he wasn't in the quest or even mentioned for that matter.

** At the end of "Sliske's Endgame", [[spoiler:just when you've finally bested him in combat, the eponymous ManipulativeBastard of a Mahjarrat conveniently gets both you and him impaled on the Staff of Armadyl and wastes no time in transferring his soul into the PlayerCharacter (complete with an EvilLaugh for good measure). The staff had been shown to be capable of killing beings and siphoning power from one to another, but not going so far as actual souls and consciousnesses.]] It just comes across as a blatant SequelHook towards ''yet another'' future plot still to be revealed.

* AssPull: [[spoiler:Linza "betraying" the PlayerCharacter towards the end of "Kindred Spirits"]] can easily come across as a largely out-of-character moment simply thrown into the storyline to make her DarkerAndEdgier and to justify getting her [[spoiler:killed off and turned into a Barrows wight]].

** Sliske killing [[spoiler:Guthix]] with the Staff of Armadyl at the end of "The World Wakes" can feel like one of these, considering that by all indications, the Dragonkin had utterly destroyed the Staff at the end of "Ritual of the Mahjarrat".

* LoveToHate: [[MagnificentBastard Sliske]], full stop. On top of assassinating Guthix, he garnered this reputation for his {{troll}}ish antics, not only from pissing off his detractors as much as possible, but being secretive when questioned about his motivations all the while enjoying the confusion as others try to learn what he's really up to.

At the same time, though, plenty of players are just [[ShutUpHannibal sick and tired]] of enduring him being a blatant KarmaHoudini for years on end (until "Sliske's Endgame" came along).

*** And again in ''Sliske's Endgame'', only this time, you [[spoiler:fight him up, close and personal after you deal with Nomad, Linza, and Gregorovic. The scuffle ultimately ends with his demise in your hands, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard using the Staff of Armadyl]] to finish him off for real.]]

* {{Anvilicious}}:
** "Perils of Ice Mountain", so very much. The puns didn't help either.
** Jagex's constant CharacterShilling for [[BeliefMakesYouStupid the Godless faction]] in story lines, events and quests has gotten more heavy-handed and boringly predictable over time.

* CreatorsPet:
** The Godless faction have been on the receiving end of a sizable amount of favouritism from Jagex. Originally, they were just the UnderdogsNeverLose remnant of Guthix's followers; now they count ExpandedUniverse heroine Kara-Meir and EnsembleDarkhorse boss [[ThatOneBoss Vorago]] amongst their numbers, and function as the default faction for players joining the Tuska world event (the better to give them a leg up to win it, of course).



** Some of the various gods' worst actions are ignored or poorly justified by players. The most common cases are Saradomin ripping off Garlandia's wings, Zamorak betraying Zaros, Zaros carving up sentient beings to create the Nihil and then abandoning them, etc. -- although a good portion of this sentiment could easily be due to players' skepticism after only [[UnreliableNarrator being told about the events]] instead of [[ShowDontTell witnessing them personally]], or otherwise could be HypeBacklash to [[CreatorsPet Jagex pushing the Godless hard]] in Sixth-Age quests and lore.

** Among the major gods, the fandom's least favorite, apart from the [[HateSink intentionally unlikable]] Bandos, is quite handily Saradomin, with many finding him a [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]], [[TautologicalTemplar tunnel-visioned]], HolierThanThou KnightTemplar who uses an irritatingly vague NeedsOfTheMany justification to excuse all kinds of horrible things. He won a "Which NPC would you like to see get killed off?" poll at [=RuneFest=] 2016. What few fans he does have are generally a bitter crowd who feel the character was [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope pushed off the slippery slope]] by the writers to justify their pro-atheism AuthorTract.

** "Sliske's Endgame." Was the [[WhamEpisode avalanche of juicy story reveals]] worth trudging through the obnoxiously long GuideDangIt maze puzzle, or does the puzzle drag the rest of the quest down with it?
