* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: In the novel ''The Marriage Of Virtue And Viciousness'', an elder speaks of what he's learned from talk radio:
-->"I’ve learned that even our malignance and evil has been surpassed by some mortal sect calling themselves ‘Democrats.’"

* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: The opening fiction for ''Ghouls'' is the story of a beaten and broken ghoul being teased viciously by his regnant, the stereotypical [[EvilIsSexy female vampire]] (withholding blood, doing torture, withholding sex, etc). After a look into his thoughts about his life and times with her, the ghoul begins to think about betraying her by trapping her in a room exposed to sunlight. Cue the Kindred's appearance: someone seems to have already tried to do that to her. Now she's beaten and broken as well, and then she begins to call on her loyal ghoul for help seeking shelter while regenerating her immortal wounds. He does, completely discarding his treacherous plan.
** At the end of ''Gangrel'', Alice [[spoiler: drains her nephew Little Jack dry]], then, in despair, [[spoiler: Embraces him]]. The story is continued in ''Nosferatu.''
** See YouAreWorthHell.
** 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.

* 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.

** 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.

Meaning there are creatures out there powerful, cunning, or just plain tough enough to avoid destruction.targeted destruction at the hands of an entire covenant.

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