** Nancy basically got away for years with cheating on Dale and mothering a child with John Redcorn. Even worse, just about everybody except Dale knows, but nobody says anything to him. Karma did eventually creep up on her when [[LaserGuidedKarma she began to go bald when she after ended the affair.]]
** John Redcorn. He cheated on Nancy without being caught and he doesn't get called out on it. He would eventually receive a karmic punishment in being repeatedly denied a role in Joseph's life and having to watch an idiot raise his son.

And there was also that time Dale mistook him for an intruder and whacked him in the face.

** The writers can't seem to agree on what Lucky went into the Costco to do. The only consistent detail of that story is slipping on pee in the bathroom.

One thing that stands out the most about the series is that unlike most other animated sitcoms that feature wacky or outlandish situations (i.e. ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', and all of their myriad offspring), ''King of the Hill'' attempted to retain realism by seeking humor in the otherwise conventional, making it the polar opposite of ''Beavis and Butt-head''. However, the show's attempts at being a more down-to-earth cartoon (that aired on mainstream network television, no less) is also the reason why some people don't like this show and have accused Judge of being a "sell out."

** Luanne going to college after meeting Buckley's angel in Season 3. In Season 8, she drops out of college and goes back to hairstyling, despite Buckley's angel telling her she was meant for something better. Technically, this is a {{Retcon}} but it also aborts the ongoing arc of Luanne getting away from her trailer trash origins. This is especially the case once she hooks up with Lucky, who Peggy points out represents the life from which Luanne was originally trying to escape (though, technically, Luanne isn't trailer trash. She doesn't live in a trailer... anymore, isn't a drug addict or alcoholic, has a husband who loves her [even if he doesn't have a job and relies more on frivolous lawsuits in order to provide for his family], and has a child she cares for. The only reason people think she's become trailer trash is because Lucky is a redneck).

** "New Cowboy on the Block" had a former Dallas Cowboys player moves into Hank's street. Despite being a horrid neighbor such as teaching Bobby foul sportsmanship, having rowdy parties late in the night, and using pieces of Hank's fence for a bonfire; he uses the fact he used to play for the Cowboys to avoid legal trouble with the police. Even the police tries to pin the blame on Hank when the latter tried to report to the former.
** "Peggy's Fan Fair" featured Music/RandyTravis (played by [[AdamWesting Randy Travis himself]]) plagiarizing lyrics to a song that Peggy wrote. Much to her aggravation when she found out about it. At the end of the episode, he claimed that he saved Hank from drowning when it's the other way around. Hank would've punched him but Peggy stopped him.
