**Is Penny secretly a Trekkie? Most of the times that she accidentally reveals a geeky side, it has to do with Star Trek. See her mentioning Leonard and the guys not "having their shields up" to the new neighbor; she recognized Leonard Nimoy on sight when he came into the restaurant and got his autograph; she was able to contradict Sheldon's claim about the Kobayashi Maru by knowing that "Kirk cheated"; and most tellingly, she tries to comfort Sheldon with an anecdote from the Star Trek movie, that he missed when he and all the other guys were in the arctic. With all of them gone, did she actually go to see the movie on her own initiative?

*** Much like [[TwoAndAHalfMen Alan Harper]], is Robbie a JerkAss that deserves to be a ButtMonkey, or does the universe constantly screwing him over justify his behavior?

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' manages to gather a few of these every other year or so.
** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has roughly the same amount of solid characterization as it does have space for ambiguity.
*** The revelations about the past of [[DoctorJerk Taiga]] have caused viewers to interpret him as either a JerkassWoobie or a self centered {{Sociopath}} who's entire reason for what he does [[labelnote:*]] including endangering innocent lives, trying to outright murder Ex-Aid and generally being a pain in the butt[[/labelnote]] amounts to either his ego being bruised or flat out jealousy that other people got the job that "should" have been his. His dialog and actions provide evidence for both.
*** When talking about [[TheHero Emu]], more specifically the Bugster virus he has, one has to ask what the Bugster portion is. Is it [[TheHeart Emu]] or [[LackOfEmpathy M]]? Moments in the show provide proof for both of these theories being the case.
*** Considering [[ConsummateLiar Kiriya's]] habit of lying, one has to wonder if him acting [[StepfordSmiler goofy]] and casual with everything he does is an act to mask how he feels about causing his friend's death. At times it almost feels forced when he laughs at other people.
*** Is Nico just a [[ManChild womanchild]], who hangs around solely to annoy people or is she [[BrilliantButLazy hidden]] social expert? She may had pretended to be infected with the Game disease just to bother Taiga. Either that or she was [[SecretTestOfCharacter testing him]] to see who he really is. Her claim about him 'being a softie' after witnessing [[NotSoStoic his reaction]] would imply that. Also, Nico is a genius gamer, who makes 100 million yen a year, yet she spends her time by following Taiga for unknown reasons. Her actions would imply her to be somewhere in between.
*** While it's hard to argue that Kuroto isn't a Jerkass and a monster, it's possible to wonder if he's a murderous narcissist because that was his original personality, or if he was somehow driven mad, possibly by the virus. If it was the second one, the state he's deteriorated to and his graphic death leave a little bit of SympathyForTheDevil.

* Season 4 of ''Series/HannahMontana'' finds Miley Stewart, now an 18-year-old high school graduate going through personal changes, ruminating on her future, choosing to stabilize her offstage life by abandoning the carefully controlled, glittery, perfect-perfect "Hannah Montana" pop star persona that made her famous since she was a small child, and revealing herself as a human, flawed, less glamorous teenage girl. She is unfairly scrutinized and harassed by the press, her image is somewhat damaged, she finds she cannot lead an ordinary life or escape from the pressure or the paparazzi, many of her longtime fans and their parents are disappointed in her, and she has to learn to perform and conduct herself in this new incarnation. Her fanbase is reluctant to accept her new artistic and personal directions, though Miley decides she alone must go in a direction she feels happiest in regardless of the backlash, and ultimately, she takes time off to begin the next chapter in her life away from the spotlight and her "Hannah" past. Perhaps a metaphor for MileyCyrus' own career?

* The surprisingly large ''LazyTown'' fandom is known for its interpretations of character backstories. Fanfiction writers often give Robbie Rotten a tragic past. A few diehards have created interpretations of the mythical "Number Nine", mentioned only in one episode. A lot of fan theories revolve around Nine being Sportacus' father.

** It's stated that before the war, Schultz was CEO of a major toy company in Germany, showing he must be a smart guy. Also, Klink makes it clear he's no fan of the Nazi system, especially the SS. Thus, both men have a vested interest in seeing the Allies actually succeed.
** There's also the theory that while both know (or at least highly suspect) what Hogan's up to, they realize that if they report a secret spy operation has been happening right under their noses, they'll be (at best) court-martialed or (at worst) sent to the Russian front. Thus keeping quiet about it keeps their own skins intact.
