** In his attempts to get information out of O-chul, Redcloak threatens to throw a group of civilians off a tower and towards the Gate rift in the hopes that one of them will yell something relevant to their attempts to understand the Snarl... and throw another group off the other side "as a control".
** The reason Hilgya didn't leave her child in the care of someone at Loki's church. We cut to a priest of Loki playing cards with the Greysky city theives, placing a baby on the betting table.

** The High Priest of Hel, and by extension Hel herself is starting to be made into one. [[spoiler: Acting as he's still the same old Durkon while secretly being TheMole to plunge the Dwarves into eternal torment? Good start for an EvilPlan. Becoming the SpannerInTheWorks for a meeting which will decide whether the wold will be destroyed or not? Score big points. Having their plans derailed by Roy and revealing they've made contingency plans beforehand? They graduated ''summa cum laude''.]]

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Vaarsuvius; being of ambiguous sex lends itself to that.

* TrappedByMountainLions: The frost giants arc, going on for close to a year, turned into this for many fans. It amounts to a glorified random encounter and focuses heavily on two BaseBreakingCharacters with very little character to them, despite the main characters supposedly being on a time-crunch to reach dwarf territory before the apocalyptic deadline. Numerous threads complaining about this have appeared on the forum only to be put down by locking. And unlike other side arcs or lulls in the storyline, it's not all that humorous and has virtually no CharacterDevelopment to go around.

** This is deliberately averted with Belkar according to the foreword that Rich wrote for ''On the Origin of |=PCs=]''. While Belkar's evilness may be a result of [[FreudianExcuse a horrible childhood,]] Rich doesn't want to reveal anything like that because it would make all of his hilarious sociopathic scenes just look sad and tearjerky.

** In Book 6, Bandana and Andi, the acting captain and the chief engineer of the ''Mechane'', both of whom are intensely polarizing characters. Bandana is the acting captain of the Mechane, and Andi (as well as some of the rest of the crew) don't take to her leadership well. Some readers insist that Bandana is reckless, incompetent, and egotistical, getting the ship into increasingly dangerous situations without adequately preparing for them, and trusting her crew to keep saving her bacon even as everything crumbles around her, and that Andi is the OnlySaneMan desperately trying to take control of a bad situation to get the ship to safety. Others argue that Bandana is a skilled and capable captain, and Andi is a petty, egomaniac lunatic who seized the ship out of sheer jealous rage and then immediately delved into CommanderContrarian, proving why she shouldn't be in charge of the ship like she desires. And then, there are those who TakeAThirdOption and think neither woman has the talent to be a captain.
