* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: The Slaughterhouse Nine under Jack Slash likes to recruit and/or create these. Though many of them have no such excuse or cross the MoralEventHorizon shortly afterwards.

** The main one is Bonesaw/Riley: the revelation of what the Nine did to break her sanity after her trigger event makes her sympathetic even after [[FateWorseThanDeath all]] [[BodyHorror the]] [[AndIMustScream horrible]] [[HatePlague things]] she did in Arcs 11-14 and Defiant's interlude; and she's the one member of the Nine who could ''literally'' destroy the world (or at least its entire population) using her power. The only reason she hasn't ever created an airborne, 100% lethal pandemic is that Jack feels it wouldn't be as much fun as the Nine's usual M.O.

** Canary is probably the one inmate of the Birdcage who least deserves to be there, having been put there through a sham of a trial.

** Dragon. For many readers, she's the AI you'd basically ''want'' to spearhead transhumanism. Her common sense can steer ''[[NoSocialSkills Collin]]'' right on the straight and narrow path, for crying out loud.

** FridgeLogic related to some of the pre-story Endbringer attack locations can cause this. Among other things, Behemoth attacked Lyon, France ''twice,'' having presumably enjoyed the first fight so much he wanted to do it again, and Leviathan attacked non-coastal cities on two separate occasions, giving the mental image of him wading through a river or waddling across dry land to his destination.

* CompleteMonster: [[KnifeNut Jack Slash]] is a psychopath obsessed with being remembered throughout history as [[CardCarryingVillain one of the most wicked human beings to have ever lived]]. The leader of the Slaughterhouse Nine, a group of superpowered {{serial killer}}s, Jack uses them to cause death and destruction across the country, regularly wiping out huge cities and their entire populations [[ForTheEvulz just for fun]]. Routinely looking to replace current members of the Nine with stronger individuals, Jack and the Nine subject any possible candidates to horrific "tests" in an attempt to corrupt them into evil, these "tests" ranging from [[MindRape psychological torture]] to murdering the candidates' friends and family in front of them. Along with massacring hundreds of innocents at a time and carving numbers into them to keep a kill count, Jack targets a hospital and, before murdering all of the staff and sickly patients, has the Nine kill off the entire [[WouldHurtAChild maternity ward]], while threatening a hero's baby sister to keep him in line. Using an army of superpowered puppets as his minions, Jack uses them to inflict horrible AndIMustScream fates on innocents, wipe out dozens of civilians, and plans to send them out into the world with the simple order to kill everything in sight. Even when beaten, Jack uses his secondary power of [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]] to convince PhysicalGod [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Scion]] to [[PersonOfMassDestruction kill billions of people]] across the multiverse as a final act of villainy. With a [[AttentionWhore pathological lust for notoriety]] and a sadistic streak a mile long, Jack Slash committed his various atrocities for no reason other than [[ItAmusedMe his own amusement]], and was more than happy to embrace his position as [[OmnicidalManiac the catalyst for the end of the world]].

* HypeBacklash: Some of the readers coming in after the story's completion are scrutinising it with a more critical eye than the readers there while it was in progress, and not all of them agree with how things pan out. The darkness of the CrapsackWorld is a common contention.

* RevengeFic: Given that Worm is host to a large number of characters that do terrible things and occasionally get off the hook without consequences, it's quite common for fanfic authors to take it upon themselves to invoke retribution upon them. It would probably be easier to list which characters ''don't'' get commonly bashed.
