** Even Teri qualifies to some degree. She spent the majority of Day 1 being [[DamselScrappy pretty useless]] and her [[TrappedByMountainLions poorly-written amnesia subplot]] made her a pretty unlikeable character to many fans. Still, many fans were sad to see her killed off so suddenly and sympathized with Jack's loss in the future seasons.

** They only really started to subvert the trope on Day 5. Before that, this trope was actually PlayedStraight quite a lot. Jack miraculously survived clinical death at the hands of Peter Kingsley's henchmen during Day 2, David Palmer miraculously survived the deadly virus Mandy infected him with at the end of Day 2, Tony miraculously survived getting shot in the neck at the start of Day 3, Michelle miraculously survived getting exposed to the virus at the end of Day 3 when the possibility of infection was higher than 90%, [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled Heller and Audrey survived their suicide attempt at the start of Day 4]], and Tony and Mandy survived their supposed car bomb death at the end of Day 4. PopularityPower was actually pretty strong, back in the day.

** Now that Season 1 of ''24: Legacy'' has finished airing, fans and critics' opinion on the show has been more divisive than even ''Live Another Day''. Was the show just as good as, if not better than, a typical season of ''24''? Did it start off very sluggish, but got progressive better after the halfway mark? Did it start off wonderful, but then tumbled to the finish line after Asim Naseri was shoehorned into the plot? Was [[spoiler:Rebecca's]] death shocking and saddening, or just thrown in because of a DiabolusExMachina and because the writers felt compelled to kill off someone major? Are the characters interesting and relatable, or are they all just bland and soulless? Most importantly, should the show be renewed for a second season, or should they just drop it and never touch the franchise again?

Added DiffLines:

** After having many seasons end on a bitter, if not depressing note for most of the main characters, the writers decided to end Season 1 of ''Legacy'' on a surprisingly optimistic note where everyone (except [[spoiler:Rebecca Ingram]]) is alive and nearly every relationship is left intact.

** A lot of people feel that [[spoiler:Tony Almeida]] was wasted in ''Legacy''. [[AdvertisedExtra Despite all the hype built around his return]], he doesn't appear until the season is halfway over, and during his appearance, all he does is torture [[spoiler:Henry Donovan]] and get into a shootout and brief fistfight with Carter. He could've been replaced by a random MauveShirt who knew Rebecca and it wouldn't have changed the story at all.

Added DiffLines:

** A lot of fans found the subplot in ''Legacy'' involving Amira Dudayev and her family to be just as awful as the Araz family subplot back in Season 4. When the sixth episode came along, [[spoiler:everyone involved in said subplot was killed off very quickly, and her father, the only surviving character, was never mentioned again]].


Added DiffLines:

** Isaac Carter from ''Legacy''. On one side, people hate him for constantly flip-flopping his attitude, for being a loose cannon, for being the center of a {{Filler}} subplot, and for trying to persuade Nicole to leave her husband. On the other side, some people like him for being a competent AntiHero, for putting himself in danger when he didn't need to, and genuinely caring about Nicole and Eric. It helps that he's more concerned about Nicole's well-being instead of his career, as opposed to Eric.


Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: [[CowardlyLion Officer Jenkins]] from ''Legacy'', who had the courage to walk out into a busy street and shoot [[spoiler:Amira Dudayev]] ''by himself'' in order to stop her from bombing a bridge. [[spoiler:Shame he didn't kill her though...]]


Added DiffLines:

** ''Legacy'' also suffered from this as well, for having way too many subplots early on in the series. It wasn't until halfway in when many of the subplots converged or were wrapped up and the show focused more on the major plots. Whether or not the series got better or worse (especially when [[AssPull Naseri]] came in) [[BrokenBase is debatable]].

** Based on what happens to Jack throughout, the Aesop of the series is, "Loyalty to your nation is pointless. It will use you, abuse you, and throw you to the wolves the moment it suits them."

Added DiffLines:

** Allison Taylor spends the third act of Season 8 [[spoiler: covering up the involvement of Russian agents in the assassination of Omar Hassan, in the name of preserving a peace treaty that Hassan strongly believed in and that it is implied will save thousands if not millions of lives.]] Naturally, this is treated as a FaceHeelTurn, and her [[spoiler: refusal to sign the treaty at the last minute]] as an act of redemption, because apparently, human lives are less important than abstract principles.
