** For the relationship of Santana and Brittany, is Samtana an abusive partner in the making? She seems eager to emotionally sway Brittany to her side of an argument no matter what said conflict is, and makes her believe she can do no wrong and makes sure she still remains loyal to her.

**** "Lesser extent"? Rachel's introduction to the series involved her accusing her drama teacher of inappropriately touching (sexual harassment implications) a boy from Glee club because he gave him a solo that she wanted.

** Is Finn Hudson ObfuscatingStupidity or is he (pardon the pun) TooDumbToLive? People are also polarized as to his appearance; sweaty sack of potatoes or actually not that bad looking?
** The most contested character interpretations of Glee however fall squarely on the characters' sexualities/romantic partners. One of the most polarizing characters is in fact Rachel Berry. Finn and Rachel a sweet high school romance or is she just manipulating him in order to ascend the ranks of high school popularity? Do Quinn and Finn have genuine feelings for one another or is she just using him like Berry wants to? And why is the head cheerleader (Quinn Fabray) drawing semi-erotic pictures of loser Rachel Berry in the school bathrooms? Lez yay or run away?

** Is Dan the OnlySaneMan or is he just a judgy, condescending, creepy stalker?

* In ''Literature/GoodnightSweetheart'', is Gary Sparrow a genuinely nice guy trying to do the right thing by two women, or he is a heartless jerk having his cake and eating it and manipulating his best friend for his own goals? A DreamSequence episode shows that Gary seemed to be aware of the latter.

** ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' has Kirk's arrogant young hot-shot reputation dragged on to the carpet and stomped on, and by the end of the film he's become significantly more humble once he realizes he's been played by someone using his ego and the only thing that prevented disaster was him pausing to ''listen'' to people counseling him to question what he was doing. ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' returns Kirk to a more TOS characterization: he's more thoughtful and cautious in his actions, reckless only when he has to be, and ''not'' guided by his libido [[spoiler: as he doesn't fall for the Hot Alien Chick in Distress routine]].

** Sherlock's sexuality is forever up for debate; not just in context of this show, but also historically. BenedictCumberbatch, who plays the role of Sherlock, claims that his version of the consulting detective is asexual (and by that he most likely means aromantic as well); creator Creator/StevenMoffat insists that he is "heterosexual but devoted to celibacy;" Sherlock/Irene fans label him as heteroromantic sapiosexual; Sherlock/Molly fans see him as either heteroromantic heterosexual or heteroromantic asexual; and Sherlock/John fans go with homoromantic asexual or outright homosexual. Since WordOfGod is gospel, as of now the canon interpretation is heterosexual, though ''A Scandal in Belgravia'', the only episode in which Sherlock shows even the slightest romantic interest in/physical attraction towards anyone, heavily hints at his sapiosexuality -- or, alternatively, IfItsYouItsOkay where Irene is concerned.

**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.
