** Tig becomes this in season 5. [[spoiler:No matter how you felt about him before, if you didn't feel heartbroken for him during the scene where he was forced to watch his daughter die, you're not human.]]
** Juice, as of Season 5. Everything he does is out of loyalty to the club because he ''cannot'' stand to be alone, and every one of those decisions backfires on him. By the final season he's a suicidal wreck all alone in the world.
** Tara. Just look at her life: [[spoiler:Her mother died when she was nine years old, and her dad was a worthless drunk. She goes to medical school and becomes a gifted surgeon, and gets the hell out of Charming, only to return because of her abusive, stalker boyfriend. Said boyfriend follows her back to Charming under the guise of investigating SAMCRO, but he's really after her. He breaks into her house, she shoots him, and she calls Jax in to finish him off. They wind up getting back together, but her in-laws stop at nothing to make her life a living hell. Then she stumbles upon a long-lost family secret, which leads to Clay hiring hitmen to shut her up. She survives, but her hand is crushed and her career is ruined. Then she unwittingly becomes an accessory to murder, which leads to her becoming the target of the district attorney and a sociopathic former US Marshal. Just when her husband announces his plan to give himself up so she can raise their sons in relative peace, she is murdered by her mother-in-law in an extremely cruel and brutal way, and all because Gemma was too messed up to make a phone call!]] Who WOULDN'T feel sorry for her?
** Otto. The guy literally lost everything for his club.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: After Gemma was considered irredemmable because she [[spoiler:killed Tara in the season 6 finale]], season 7 spent as much time as possible making her more sympathetic, and showing that the consequences of her reckless actions [[BreakTheHaughty is deeply taking its toll on her emotions and sanity]].



* DudeNotFunny: Shortly after [[spoiler:the massacre at Diosa]], Tig jokes that people love pussy so much that customers would still come over even if they [[spoiler:left the dead women's corpses on the floor]]. Even he admits it was too soon to say that.

** James "Jimmy O" O'Phelan, season 3's BigBad (he also appears near the end of season 2), is a member of the True IRA, a Northern Irish terrorist organization and criminal syndicate mainly involved in gun running. O'Phelan previously ran current SAMCRO member Chibs out of the IRA and stole Chibs's wife and daughter (Fiona and Kerianne), years later threatening to dump Fiona and [[WifeHusbandry marry Kerianne next]] to Chibs's face. He goes rogue in the third season after receiving a demotion back in Ireland. He tries to kill all of SAMCRO and SAMBEL in an explosion, and after his family escapes his wrath he kills an IRA member in a failed attempt to get them back before torturing and executing another one to find Jax Teller's kidnapped baby son Abel. He murders the adoptive family Abel was placed with and takes the child to ensure his escape to the States, before exchanging him for another hostage whom he later kills. Aside from his bodycount, O'Phelan stands out among the show's many gangsters in that he [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes has no real loved ones]] [[note]]He tells Chibs to "take care of our girls," but he may just be trying to taunt Chibs and rob him of the pleasure of killing him.[[/note]], shows no remorse for any of his crimes, and only ever displays purely selfish motives.

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: Charlie Hunnam? The British pretty boy from ''{{Undeclared}}''? As a biker? More to the point, the Geordie twink from ''QueerAsFolk'', who became famous in the UK for taking it up the wrong 'un from a much older man?

** Clay was a very dominant leader and a great fighter in the first season. Sadly, he becomes a backstabbing pussy in all the other seasons, and is rarely seen doing anything. He doesn't even fight back anymore, he just let's himself get his ass kicked. The only badass thing he ever did after 6 seasons was to FaceDeathWithDignity.
