* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The Brujah becoming the Bruja could very well be this for any player of VampireTheMasquerade transitioning over to the new setting; aside from being downgraded from a full-fledged clan to a bloodline, the original Brujah were revolutionaries who shaped history with uprisings, activism and passion, rebels, punk rockers, working tirelessly to improve society. VampireTheRequiem's Bruja? Are a psychopathic criminal biker gang. All of them. It was clearly done to streamline the clans along with many other, more well-received changes, and the Gangrel in the new setting can serve more or less the same purpose, but it does come as a bit of a slap in the face to some older players in order to make a hamfisted attempt to add vampires similar to those from FromDuskTillDawn.

**** And by "how well they're treated", it's implied that any ghouls recruited by the Brood are already just as evil as the Brood vampires...so the Brood vampires are happily helping evil ghouls indulge their vices.

** The Burakumin may look terrifying but their history is quite sweet. After spending hundreds of years being treated as scum by other Kindred, these guys help Japan recover after WWII and as a result have finally gained the respect they deserve.

** A relatively mild example: independent Moroi (see CripplingOverspecialization). Most are kept on a short leash by the Ordo Dracul; most of the rest were killed. However, this means logically that there are those of the bloodline that didn't want to be leashed killers, enough that they refused...and were powerful enough to avoid destruction. This is actually discussed--bringing in or bringing down such creatures is sometimes tasked to disposable coteries that are more trouble than they're worth--but the ''implications'' aren't really delved into in-text.

** If it matters, the original supplement's suggested outcomes for such a story were much more positive than how things actually came out.

* RuleAbidingRebel -- Some Carthians try to find reforms for the Requiem that don't disrupt the Invictus-derived model of praxis, lest they get boots on their necks.

** The Haunts can be fugly bat-faced monsters out of your worst nightmares or they can be beautiful... perfectly beautiful... ''disturbingly'' beautiful.
*** Some of their bloodlines lack any flaws in their appearance, but are so taken by their BlueAndOrangeMorality that it's the same issue.
