** In the end we never did learn Dipper's real name. Fans either feel annoyed and lied to that it was never stated or feel it is for the best as his name would likely leave people disappointed (many fans were already upset at "Dipper" being a nickname), plus it leaves fans to enjoy their {{fanon}} names.

** In general, season four tends to get this- one half of the fans found the show to hit SeasonalRot by that point, feeling the episodes weren't as memorable. [[EnsembleDarkhorse Skrawl]] not appearing very often and hitting VillainDecay, the ending songs getting a new composer and rehashing old songs, and the show being outsourced to [[OffModel weaker studios]] for animation didn't help matters. Other fans didn't really mind too much and saw it on the same level as the rest of the show.



** Irwin is a mild example. There are a few people who find him too clingy, an unnecessary [[SpotlightStealingSquad spotlight stealer]], or dorky to the point were it was obnoxious. That being said, it seems like he's still very popular with fans, and ''Underfist'' did give him a shot at redemption.

* ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'': The ''Life With Loopy'' shorts tended to have a pretty broken base among the show's viewers, mainly due to the animation style. One half found the style to be too UncannyValley, and the combination of stop-motion animation, puppetry, and live-action a bit unnerving. The other half loved it for it's artistic look, as well as giving the short a very unique look that really made it stand out. Though they do agree that the show wasn't immune to falling into the valley- the pilot episode especially.

** Even ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' was exposed to this before the show even premiered with Knuckles' new character design breaking the fan base in two. Does Knuckles' new character design fit greatly with the character's strength capabilities or should they have kept his original design from the video games? While the show got positive reviews after launching, [[UnpleasableFanbase old sega fans are never pleased.]] Half will say the show is funny and smart, while the other half will say it's too childish and/or fast paced. Also, being a new character, [[CloudCuckooLander Sticks]] is a major BaseBreakingCharacter. Does she deserve her spot with the main cast? Are her jokes funny and original or forced and predictable? Is her voice cute or the MostAnnoyingSound?

** Suyin's relationship with Kuvira is a deeply debated one. There are lines that imply Su adopted Kuvira as a child and had a strong bond with her however [[InformedAttribute it never appears in the series]]. They're always at each other's throats and show no relationship besides animosity. Whether Suyin was an emotionally AbusiveParent who didn't really think of Kuvira as anything more than a pupil, whether Suyin [[spoiler:trying to assasinate Kuvira]] was right or not, whether Suyin had a double standard towards her son, and whether Suyin [[spoiler:refusing to [[EasilyForgiven forgive]] Kuvira]] was right or not are debatable. This only adds onto Suyin's BaseBreaker status from Book 3.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'':
** Was the show's ReverseCerebusSyndrome a good call, or did it lead to SeasonalRot?
** Thanks to {{Flanderization}}, a few [[BaseBreakingCharacter characters]] became this. Is Billy still funny, or just a one-note annoyance? And is Mandy's cynicism still charming, or is she so evil that she's an UnintentionallyUnsympathetic JerkSue?
** Fred Fredburger was a pretty good comic relief in his first appearance, but some think he became a bit overused and aggravating.

** There are many fans of the 80's cartoons that '''don't''' like ''Friendship is Magic''. The art style in particular is subject to debate, whether it's cute or they loom like mutant Chihuahuas instead of horses. The actual stories are also up for debate.

** Even ignoring the rabid ShipToShipCombat, ''The Fairly Oddparents'' is one of the most controversial cartoons of its time. Most fans consider it fell into SeasonalRot but no one can agree when. As early a season 3, after ''Channel Chasers'', after Poof, after Sparky, or after Chloe? There's also a minority who like all the seasons.
** The series in later seasons is markedly different from how it originally was, similarly to ''[=SpongeBob=]''. The characters have gone through a lot of {{flanderization}}, more minor characters like Mr. Crocker and Timmy's dad were made into main characters, and much of the extended cast has become borderlinebackground characters (such as Trixie, Timmy's friends, etc). Whether these changes were acceptable or not varies, which usually coincides with when fans think the series hit SeasonalRot.



** The various changes to the characterizations are ''the'' commonly debated part of the series amongst ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' fans. Velma and Fred are especially prone to this. Velma was always the fan-favorite but her interpretation in ''Mystery Inc'' is a LoveItOrHateIt deal. Is she too [[DeadpanSnarker sassy]] to the point of being an annoying jerk or is she the best Velma to date due to her sarcasm?
