*** Even before Clark came on the scene, Jonathan had more than his fair share of trouble in life. Martha says that Jonathan and his father never really got along, and Jonathan regrets never being able to patch things up between them. He met Martha while taking some classes at college (probably to manage the farm better), and she was way out of his league: daughter of a high-powered Metropolis attorney, and her father no love for the yokel Martha was falling for. In the end, Clark's grandfather was invited out of the family, and never really reconciled with his daughter, son-in-law, or grandson. Jonathan and Martha were also unable to have children of their own, despite numerous attempts. And through it all, Jonathan had to keep a rather powerful rage in check to be the good man he always wanted to be.

** In Season 2's "Heat," the Freak of the Week, Desire Atkins, is trying to make her escape after setting Lex on fire. She runs for the door, but Clark heats up the doorknob from a distance with his heat vision. Desire grabs the doorknob and lets out what must be the most unconvincing and fake-sounding shriek ever heard on national TV. Oh and the best part? The whole time she's screaming she's still holding on tightly to the doorknob instead of letting go of it the way one would in real life. Blame the actress for that one.

She ''is'' best known for her softcore porn career.

** A milder version would be Kal (Clark on Red Kryptonite), who is usually not particularly evil but still a real {{Jerkass}} who could easily get violent. Once could even argue that Kal is an invocation of this trope, along with GirlsWantBadBoys and EvilIsSexy.

* InkStainAdaptation: Lana Lang has played a minor role in the many adaptations of Franchise/{{Superman}}, including ''Film/SupermanIII'' and ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', but unfortunately she gets immense hate for her first big appearance in the show, where she is infamous for 8 seasons of non-stop RomanticPlotTumor. After ''Smallville'' ended, she got lesser appearances in other Superman-related adaptations and only got one small cameo in ''Film/ManOfSteel'' as a child. In the ''Comicbook/{{New 52}}'', she's regulated back into the [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Unlucky Childhood Friend]] since Superman is now dating Comicbook/WonderWoman.

** The show itself to Superman fans. Some think the show made a great representation of the modern Superman and wanted Tom Welling and Creator/MichaelRosenbaum to be in ''Film/SupermanReturns'' and/or ''Film/ManOfSteel'', and others who think this version is too much of a TeenDrama (even though the show grew out of this after about Season 4).

** Green Arrow quickly became a fan favorite and rose to become one of the main characters from Season Eight onwards, though he became a slight BaseBreaker afterward.

** Chloe and Oliver are sometimes accused of this, particularly from [[DieForOurShip Chlark and Chimmy shippers]], and it is one of the main reasons both characters have BaseBreaker status.

* SeasonalRot: Pick any season after Season 3 and you'll find its fair share of haters, to the point where pretty much every season besides the universally-loved Season 3 could be considered {{Base Breaker}}s. However Seasons 8-10 have been largely well-received (with Season 8 alone breathing enough life back into the show that it regained enough momentum to make it to the ten-year mark), and the final season, 10, has been even better received, though the series finale [[BrokenBase breaks the base yet again]].

* RevengeFic: Lana Lang had this. A lot. Let's just say that there were many Smallville fans who hated Lana's supposed MarySue status on the show and were eager to take the character down a peg.
