* ArcFatigue: For nearly half the comic Hansel, Bo, Brave and the others fight against Licorice's forces. Reading it now probably doesn't seem bad but at the time the comic took a lot of hiatus. To clarify the fight started around 2008, took ''four years'' to get through it (finally ending in 2012) and the characters never moved from the area when it first started neither.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: A kinda sorta example, Brave.
** Gene as well. Even critics who tore the series apart in their reviews were willing to admit that they liked him and wished he had more focus.
* ToyShip: Hansel and Bo again.
