* BlondesAreEvil: Some of her blonde characters are based off of people who were mean to her in life. Some blondes are good, but only if they're nice to the main characters.

* DeaderThanDisco: The sharp decline in Twilight's popularity alongside Meyer's non-Twilight work being considered flops have not fared kindly to her career aspirations. Many, including former fans, see her today as a one note author, and that's the kindest summary.

** And then one followed when the ''Breaking Dawn'' backlash hit and ''The Host'' movie didn't do well. It's telling that she hasn't written any new books since.

* GenderBender: She is currently rewriting Twilight (again) with this in mind, changing the genders of Bella, Edward, and Jacob. Given Jacob's small presence in the original Twilight, yet his becoming "Julie" here, it seems she may be intending to republish the other books the same way to include him/her.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Extreme cases will spell her name Steph'''a'''nie Meyer'''s'''.
* WishFulfillment: Arguably, this is the whole purpose of the Twilight series, both for the author and for her audience. She specifically created Bella as a blank slate for a reader to project their fantasies upon, and Bella's very name was born of her wish for a daughter who would never come into being. [[TropesAreNotBad This isn't necessarily a bad thing]], but, well, [[TropesAreNotGood let's just say that there are haters for a reason]].

* ButtMonkey: She's rather... ''disliked'', and her works are LoveItOrHateIt at best.
** She's been described as "J.K. Rowling as a ninth-grade girl who dots her "i's" with hearts and flowers."
** Most of it seems to be hatred for her works and simple IrrationalHatred, since most of the awfully shocking things she is supposed to have said are nowhere to be found, be it on the internet or on her paper interviews.



* FemaleMisogynist: She has been accused of being this, specifically the uber-housewife Type B.
* HeteronormativeCrusader: She has also been accused of being this, given that she is both a Mormon housewife and a huge fan of Creator/OrsonScottCard.



** Sounds like a TakeThat against Creator/JKRowling, as Rowling has joked about sending rejection letters back to publishers after ''Literature/HarryPotter'' became successful.

* WantsAPrizeForBasicDecency: Boasted that she didn't pout when there were publishers that didn't wish to publish ''Twilight''. Subverted, in that she was only reacting to people who threw a StealthInsult by showing them that she wasn't as much of an obsessed psycho as they thought.
-->'''Stephenie Meyer''': "I will state, for the record, that my queries truly sucked, and I don't blame anyone who sent me a rejection (I did get seven or eight of those. I still have them all, too). The only rejection that really hurt was from a small agent who actually read the first chapter before she dropped the axe on me. The meanest rejection I got came after Little, Brown had picked me up for a three-book deal, so it didn't bother me at all. I'll admit that I considered sending back a copy of that rejection stapled to the write-up my deal got in Publisher's Weekly, but I took the higher road."

* DirtyOldWoman: Well, she's not that old, but the fact she said that she would leave her husband for Edward, and the fact that his actor RobertPattinson said he feels uncomfortable when she's around, may count as dirty. He's gone on record as saying he considers Stephenie Meyer to be mad, and ''Twilight'' to be a sexual fantasy that was never supposed to be published.
