*** Can Kim genuinely beat Shego (who is superpowered and has years of fighting experience) in fights or is Shego just letting her win? Reasons for the latter vary depending on the fan. Some fans think she doesn't harm her due to [[WouldNotHurtAChild moral]] reasons or practical reasons (murdering someone would cause her a lot more trouble than just stealing things). Others think that Shego believes Kim is her [[TheRival rival]] and that she enjoys fighting her; if she defeated Kim then she'd lose the excitement that she brings. A third interpretation popular with shippers is that she doesn't hurt Kim because she loves her..

** Also, is Daffy a greedy, cowardly {{Jerkass}} who sells out his friends to Elmer simply to save his own neck, or is he just like this because WesternAnimation/BugsBunny stole his act? He is three years older than Bugs and was originally the Screwball {{Trickster}} but then Bugs (who was described by the creators as 'Daffy Duck in a ''rabbit costume''') came along and eventually took over those traits. With his act stolen he was forced to become the straightman for Bugs' jokes or the {{Buttmonkey}} who always got outsmarted, and is now forced to become second best to the person who was originally his {{Expy}}. Such as this dialogue from ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction''

** The reason behind TheFlash's antics is the focal point of "Flash and Substance." The episode strongly implies that the Flash acts like that for both civilians and other League members. Most of the other members are stoically serious; the Flash is capable of giving them necessary emotional relief. The people look up to him because they can relate to him. They find him genuinely fun to be around, contrary to Superman's constantly stressed "workaholic" nature or, worse, Batman's. Orion even makes use of the trope himself, realizing that it helps the Flash get through League stress as well.

** Vicky has this: There a fan interpretation that Vicky's bullying toward Timmy is a result of a troubled childhood past, based on Vicky's confessing of this to Timmy in the episode ''Snow Bound''. The creator of the series, Butch Hartman, has also named this episode as one of his favorites for this reason. This kind of falls apart when you find out that her parents are terrified of her. Does this mean that Vicky [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk really is icky]], or is it simply retribution for being abused by them. Or maybe they're her foster parents.

*** '''Or''', Princess Bubblegum is simply a ''very'' [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask stressed out young woman who has a lot of responsibility on her plate]] (being the sole ruler of a whole kingdom and trying to keep her subjects safe from all the weird calamities that occur on a frequent basis, for starters) and no time for a personal life. It's also clear she really fears the possibility of dying and leaving her kingdom under the rule of an InadequateInheritor, which may go a long way in explaining her disappointment with [[LethallyStupid Lemongrab]]. As for Finn, she could just be [[ObliviousToLove clueless about his feelings]] and/or refuses to date him [[{{Shotacon}} because he's]] [[PrecociousCrush still younger than her]], and is just trying to let him down with as much tact as possible. [[LesYay That, or she's a lesbian]] [[DryDockedShip who broke up with Marceline.]]

** Then there's ''Armada'' Hot Shot, whose ACI became semi-canon. He was the team hothead in the cartoon, but a fan "translated" a comic so it decipted him as a drooling moron who only stays alive because of his minicon. The comic was then referenced by his ''Universe'' Toy packaging and license plate. See TFwiki.nets' JaAm article for exact details.
