* CompleteMonster: The [[OurLichesAreDifferent evil lich]] [[BigBad Xykon]] is [[LaughablyEvil funny]], [[FauxAffablyEvil charming]], [[BrilliantButLazy easily bored]], and probably the sickest character in the comic. His ultimate plan is to unleash [[BiggerBad the Snarl]] so he can control it and use it against his enemies, uncaring that the monster is [[spoiler:what everyone believes to be]] an evil, god-murdering abomination which has the power to destroy the world.In the present story Xykon seeks to capture the gates that would allow him to command the Snarl, and has been going to any measure to do so. He sacked Azure City to claim their gate, and made [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0448.html the entire Sapphire Guard kill each other with a Symbol of Insanity]]. He even admits that he could have just used fire and lightning from above, but wanted to go [[ForTheEvulz "that extra mile"]]. His full monstrousness is revealed in the prequel comic ''StartOfDarkness.'' [[EnfantTerrible As a young boy]], his dog dies, but in a deliberate subversion of a FreudianExcuse, he accidentally raises it as a zombie and exults as it kills and eats a bird. [[TeensAreMonsters As a teenager]], he keeps his zombified grandmother in his closet, kills and zombifies a man who offers to train him as a sorcerer, then [[SelfMadeOrphan kills and zombifies his own parents]] for letting the man in. As a would-be EvilOverlord, he chooses actions solely on the basis of their potential [[ItAmusedMe to amuse him]] versus the effort required. When Redcloak and his brother Right-Eye started working with Xykon, Right-Eye tried to assassinate Xykon for his [[BadBoss evil and callousness with the lives of his goblin underlings]]. Xykon allowed Redcloak to kill Right-Eye just to permanently bind Redcloak to Xykon's service, accuses him of being a wimp [[EvilerThanThou because of his principled stance]], and then [[KickTheDog forced him to raise his brother as a zombie]]. He also trapped the souls of two mages, Lirian and Dorukan, [[AndIMustScream in a gem in order to make them suffer forever]].

* AssPull: Roy's cross-class skills in Knowledge (Architecture and Engineering) are just a little too sudden and out of the blue to be taken seriously -- especially since they were never exactly put to use elsewhere.

** And, while not very funny to start with, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0333.html Durkon's joy upon being told he'd return to his homeland after dying]] becomes far worse when [[spoiler: he does so as a Vampire in order to destroy the world]].

** Malack. Exactly how evil he really is has been up for debate since the very beginning. How much he cared for his children, how much he does or does not genuinely respects Durkon, and a lot of other parts of his personality are up for debate. It was partly settled when Malack was revealed to be [[spoiler:a vampire who planned an endless campaign of human sacrifice when he took over the kingdom, perhaps employing a [[Film/SoylentGreen special chamber]].]]

** Nale spent most of the comic as an unrepentant mass-murderer. But the we get to meet his father, and realise what sort of childhood he must have had and how it formed him to the man he became, placing him in this trope.
*** On the other hand, he ''was'' shown being cruel as a baby even when his parents were (presumably) together, so it's not all on Tarquin.

** NALE. If he thought his father was going to just let his [[spoiler:killing of Malack]] slide, especially after [[spoiler:he boasted about making the cleric suffer while dying ''straight to his face'']], he didn't know Tarquin at all, and deserved everything coming to him afterwards just for being that ''stupid''.
*** Even if Tarquin wouldn't have given him what he had coming Laurin most definitely ''would'' have, making this doubly stupid.
