* EnsembleDarkhorse: Unlike the two villains introduced in Mike Costa's run, the Sleeper symbiote has been a hit with the Venom fandom thanks to it being raised by the Venom symbiote and Eddie to be good, it's unique design and power set. It's popularity was also helped by it's appearance in ''ComicBook/AbsoluteCarnage'', where it came to the rescue of Eddie's son Dylan and took on a badass wolf form and adorable cat form.


* {{Sequelitis}}: Is considered this to Rick Reminder's and Cullen Bunn's ''Agent Venom'' run, even though one could say it was already in hot water because of ''Venom: Space Knight'' by Robbie Thompson, which was already heavily reviled. Costa's run not only opens with Flash and the symbiote separated, but replaces him with Lee Price, a brutal, sadistic asshole who one-ups ComicBook/MacGargan as a unrepentant, bloodthirsty Venom who does everything he can to undermine the restoration the symbiote went through in ''Space Knight''. However, once the host changes to Eddie the book starts GrowingtheBeard with Venom going straight again and Eddie succeeding in repairing the Venom symbiote's corruption from Lee Price leaving the book with a mixed reception.

* TheScrappy: Lee Price was almost-immediately labelled a SuckSessor for Flash Thompson; and was lambasted for his AnimeHair and [[TheStoic stoically]] cruel attitude. When he revealed his ability to mentally dominate the Venom symbiote and began abusing it, fans hated him even more and were happy to see the symbiote break free of his control. Price making his comeback by stealing fan-favorite Andi Benton's symbiote and keeping it after the end of ''Venom Inc.'' made him even more reviled.
