** The Mothership since Day One. The Archon Toilet aside, it just takes far too long to tech up to deploy it, it costs a huge amount of resources, is very slow to move, doesn't do much damage, is easily killed, and needs a long time to build up energy to use its abilities. The result is them rarely seeing competitive use.
** Swarm Hosts. Their ability to endlessly create waves of locusts to pressure the enemy indefinitely means they can force a stalemate if a player can't find a way to push back against them, and any units lost to their locusts are an advantage for the Zerg player because they lose nothing if their locusts die. The hate for them got even worse in ''Legacy of the Void'' when their locusts were allowed to ''fly'', making them base raiders to boot, able to unleash locusts on worker lines from across chasms without fear of reprisal.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The trilogy of novels ''The Dark Templar Saga'' ended up being this when they were said by WordOfGod to be written specifically to set up plot events in the trilogy. Instead, most of the characters in the novels don't appear, the events of the novels are not referenced, and most of the backstory and lore it provides is either re-stated in the games, or is retconned by the games. In the meantime, the book concerns a Terran that has to share his brain with a Protoss experiencing the memories of famous Protoss heroes as visions, Kerrigan's attempts to replicate her infestation on another Terran succeed (with no given reason for why after another novel had her repeatedly failing), we deal with Protoss ''drug addicts'', and we have Ulrezaj the dark archon draining the souls of other Protoss to sustain his life.

* StopHavingFunGuys: In multiplayer, a lot of older or higher ranked players will rather play with other players of equal ranking and have hate on newer ranked ones, especially newcomers (ie noobs). Some will go through great lengths to abuse the new player until he/she quits the game. Apparently they'd rather have a lower chance of winning than have a newcomer on their team. This even happens on unranked games. If you bring it up in the forums the answer is often "come back when you can play 4v4 against the computer on brutal". Ouch. Also, a lot of players believe in specific tactics and you will be terribly bullied if you choose to play in a way that do not conform to any known tactics.
