** Ben sudden change in personality during the Omniverse series is a coping mechanism. After nearly going KnightTemplar and almost brainwashing the entire universe to his will, he reverted back to his old personality in order to hide the guilt he felt at almost irreversibly harming the universe. Likewise, it's also an attempt to cool himself down somewhat and not take things too seriously like he used to. The change in personality could also be because of ObfuscatingStupidity. Afterall, Ben ''does'' have an awful a lot of enemies. Wouldn't be better if he just ''seemed'' immature just to make them underestimate him?

** Is Gadget Hackwrench a simple GeniusDitz with a heart of gold? Or is she harboring an amoral dark side that needs to be harnessed for good by the Rescue Rangers lest it grow out of control (such as the "salesman traps" that Chip and Dale ran into in the pilot right before they met her, many of which were quite lethal)?

** Is the global organization a rebellious group of kids devoted to defying adult authority? or a benevolent, somewhat KnightTemplar-ish group protecting the children of the world from those that wish to harm or unjustly oppress them? Although OP: Z.E.R.O. seems to confirm on the latter, some viewers tend to scale strictly on the former. Or are they straight-up [[VillainProtagonist Villain Protagonists]] with a SympatheticPOV? This was a lot more plausible early on in the show.

** Dexter has awkward social tendencies, which may be a result of his having Asperger's Syndrome. He is a genius, but he doesn't seem to have a basic understanding of things outside book smarts and the like. He apparently is unable to have much of an imagination about anything.

** Just how "[[NiceGuy sweet]]" Jerrica is depends on your viewpoint. She is usually presented as just and nice however she [[TwoPersonLoveTriangle toys with her boyfriend]], acts malicious towards The Misfits from the moment they meet, and has some debatable moments.

** Some viewers dismiss Phillip J. Fry as being mentally retarded, when in fact his particular mental issues are more likely place him on the [[UsefulNotes/{{Autism}} autism spectrum]]. Being a BookDumb SociallyAwkwardHero whose biggest issues are [[ShapedLikeItself ones of communication and selective ignorance]] and is functional enough to have survived ''Futurama'''s [[DeathWorld Death Universe]], Fry's personality is a strong case for UsefulNotes/AspbergersSyndrome. In fact, given the narrative of the show it makes perfect sense; by the 31st century its quite plausible that autism has long been cured in the ''Futurama'' universe, and being the last human on Earth with the condition serves to further justify his FishOutOfTemporalWater status.

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'': Gwen's and Kevin's crushes on each other are just their way of repressing that they're both attracted to Ben. Both attractions are at least partially taboo -- Gwen's because [[KissingCousins Ben's her cousin]], Kevin's because [[HoYay Ben's a guy]] -- so the only solution is to try to force themselves to fall (however [[StrangledBytheRedString improperly]]) for each other. Because they're both lying to themselves and each other, they're both getting their [[MasterOfTheMixedMessage signals returned]], which is encouraging the charade. This explains why Gwen tells Kevin to ask her out without wanting him to, why Kevin tries to make himself appear attracted to Gwen without making a move, and why they both show Ben so much more subtle and genuine affection.

** Whatever is underneath Edd's hat and why he hides it is an alternate character interpretation in itself.
*** Some fans say that Edd has a severe case of psoriasis on his scalp. For some reason, it only affects his scalp, and he hates people staring at the swollen pink blotches and grayish scales the disease causes, so he wears a hat to hide them. Ed thinks the blotches and scales look cool, being a monster movie fan, and says so when Edd's hat is pulled off by a ceiling fan.

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.
