** [[BaseBreaker Ezekiel]]: A sheltered and naive kid that just didn't know any better and [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter got the shaft]]? Or is he a sexist, rude, annoying, money-hungry gollum that deserved [[spoiler: falling into that volcano?]]

* The nature of Tom and Sarah's relationship in ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''. While they usually seem HappilyMarried, {{flanderization}} made Sarah into quite a fangirl after the first season. While she never goes as far as to actually cheat on Tom (and even gets mad at him for implying she would), many fans consider her a step away from becoming a cheater. This, combined with her boredom due to Tom's [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys lack of adventure and dominance]] has created a {{fanon}} that the two will divorce by the time Jazmine is in high school.

** 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.

** For most of the series, Grunkle Stan runs the Mystery Shack, which is full of fake knick-knacks and items he claims are supernatural, like the Sascrotch (Bigfoot wearing underwear). Ironically, all of Gravity Falls has things that actually are paranormal. However, "Boss Mabel" shows that Stan's cheap tricks are too terrifying and dangerous for tourists, who seem sufficiently satisfied with the safe but clearly fake attractions. It also hints that Grunkle Stan [[ObfuscatingStupidity might know more than he appears.]] [[note]] [[spoiler: This has been confirmed as of the episode [[Recap/GravityFallsS2E1Scaryoke Scaryoke]]]]. [[/note]]

** Princess Bubblegum may well be '''the''' most [[BaseBreaker divisive character]] in the whole series.

** 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.

** ''Danny Phantom'' has characters who can be construed in different ways: Vlad, Danny, Sam, Jack, Dark Danny... but most notably, Vlad, who has before-and-after VillainDecay selfs to play with.

** 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.

** On the mention of Dee Dee, it's speciulated she's pretty smart. It makes sense considering her family and there are implications in the series. Depending on who you ask she's trolling Dexter and ObfuscatingStupidity, she's only a genius in certain aspects like ballet, or she's ''smarter'' than Dexter but that's overshadowed by [[DitzyGenius her bubbly nature]].

** Dora is a brave girl whose careless parents let her freely roam a dangerous jungle or an imaginative little girl with her stuffed animals using puddles and a sandbox to keep herself entertained in her backyard. She is either surrounded by friends that are always there for her or only has one friend and he only hangs out with her because they are cousins.

** Kankers are very prone to this, due to their canon {{flat|Character}}ness. Are they just bullies tormenting everyone for kicks, or is it a JerkassFacade, built because of (implied) abuse and poverty they had faced earlier in their lives? Do they care about the Eds, and if yes, to what extent?

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'':
** Does the mother of Gazpacho exist from ''{{Chowder}}''? Maybe Gazpacho is a sad, lonely Mammoth who can't commit to a relationship, and so he says his mother doesn't let him kiss other girls and uses his mother as an excuse to his odd behaviour. Maybe his mother moved away from him or died; he can't take it mentally, and so he thinks of her as always around.

** Stormer's relationship with the other band mates. Is she an ExtremeDoormat who is friends with a group of VitriolicBestBuds? Or do they use her and keep her around for her talent, making her think she's nothing without them when in reality they're wrecks without Stormer.
** 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 fans see her as a {{narcissist}}, BitchInSheepsClothing, or [[LossOfIdentity unstable in her identity]] due to her dual personas.

*** Was Gandra despising Fenton because filming her for the Pep commercial ruined her reputation in ''The Big Flub'' uncalled for, or did she have every right to be angry at her boyfriend because of the town's backlash to a product that Fenton didn't bother to test before releasing?
** Is Launchpad a bad pilot, a good pilot [[CaptainCrash who can't land straight]], or [[BunnyEarsLawyer a good pilot who has a weird idea of personal style]]? Fans of the show all over the internet (or even ThisVeryWiki) will tell you different things.
