Added DiffLines:

* FanonDiscontinuity: "Water Park Prank" has to be the most unpopular episode of the whole show. Besides the off-putting art style thanks to the guest animator, the episode is two 6-minute plots pasted together, with Finn, Jake, and the Ice King all reverting to their Season 1 characterizations.

** And the fact that he seems to go back to being dumb whenever he's out of the Fire Kingdom. Baking doesn't work that way.
* AuthorsSavingThrow: [[spoiler:Many fans were rightfully pissed off when the arc involving Finn losing his arm, which had been foreshadowed forever, was clumsily resolved in "Breezy" where Finn's arm just grew back. Season 7 rectifies this by having him lose his arm AGAIN, this time giving him a robot arm, as had been foreshadowed previously.]]
** Lemongrab (both 1 and 2) has always been one of the most polarizing characters in the fandom and their {{Flanderization}} in season 5 has only pissed fans off even more. The creators resolved this by [[spoiler:blowing him up and having PB construct a new Lemongrab. The new Lemongrab is much more stable than either of his predecessors while still keeping some of the original Lemongrab's personality quirks.]]

** Finn's [[spoiler:manipulation of Flame Princess in "Frost & Fire"]] and Bubblegum's [[spoiler:control and surveillance of others]] are acknowledged and addressed in "Bun Bun" and "The Cooler", respectively.



* ContinuityLockOut: Susan Strong refers to her people as "Hyoo-man" in her second episode, which sounds exactly like "Human." The term "Hyoo-man" was clarified to mean FishPeople only in [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary materials]]. Some who hadn't seen them would be confused, since the difference between Human and Hyoo-man happened to be a plot point that was brought up and discussed.

Many episodes later on expect you to fully understand the difference between Human lore of the series and Hyoo-man happened to be a plot point that was brought up and discussed.recall events from 20+ episodes ago.



** Creator/RonPerlman as The Lich. Seriously, his "Fall." speech in "Escape from the Citadel" is the prime example of how good Perlman's work is.



** Any line said by Lemongrab. His voice is either ridiculously hilarious, or like nails on a chalkboard, cringe-worthy, and a migraine waiting to happen.

** While [[CriticalDissonance critics]] praised Season 6 for its newfound [[GoingCosmic cosmic]], ContemplateOurNavels direction, a lot of fans were put off by this more philosophical/somber storytelling, plus the lack of focus on plotlines and the [[AntiClimax anti-climactic]] outcome of the whole meteor plot and the resolution with Finn's father. It doesn't help that this was [[OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight after Pen stepped down as showrunner]].

* CriticalDissonance: Season 6 received praise for its newfound [[GoingCosmic cosmic]], ContemplateOurNavels nature, citing it as an example of the show's growing maturation. However, many were put off by the show's newfound philosophizing and considered the new direction pretentious, ridiculous and [[AntiClimax Anti-climactic]], complete with the stereotype that after Pen stepped down, the writing was taken over by [[{{Hipster}} Hipsters]] with too much ProtectionFromEditors.



** Season Five is considered a weaker season than previous ones, which mostly has to do with some extremely controversial characterization regarding Finn, Princess Bubblegum and Lemongrab.
** Season Six is considered this by some fans due to the stories not having much focus on its plotlines and the anti-climatic outcome of the whole meteor plot and the resolution with Finn's father.

* AcceptableTargets: Abusive boyfriends or just abusers in general (like Ash, the Party God and Ricardio) always get either killed or have the crap beaten out of them. [[AssholeVictim Nobody's really complaining]].

** Weider episodes played not for laughs, such as existentialist or symbolic episodes, tend to get mixed reactions. One side loves their depth, while the other side hates them for being confusing, some accusing the writers of invoking FauxSymbolism that doesn't really mean anything.

Added DiffLines:

** The Widow in "Min and Marty" began as a fairly sympathetic character who (justifiably) wanted revenge on Martin for [[spoiler: selling her and the other hiders out.]] But she loses all sympathy once she and her goons [[spoiler: [[DisproportionateRetribution break into his house and attempt to kill him,]] even though he was defenseless, [[WouldHurtAChild with his infant son]], and (seemingly) [[ReformedButRejected on the path to redemption.]]]]

*** Selfish {{Jerkass}} tyrant in need of a good kick in the butt, or a genuinely psychologically [[TheWoobie unstable person]] in dire need of help and kindness, or [[JerkassWoobie both]]? After "You Made Me!," it seems that last one is the most likely.

** Related to Lemongrab, is Princess Bubblegum keeping a hands-off approach to him due to the complexity of legal treaties, or because she simply doesn't want to have to deal with him? Most of the time Bubblegum can't stand to be in Lemongrab's presence for more than a few minutes, and leaves him to his own demented devices as soon as a convenient band-aid can be slapped on whatever problem he's causing: this ranges from dumping him in another country after his botched creation, to creating a second just-as-flawed Lemongrab (which made the problem far worse), to barely noticing that Lemongrab was electro-shocking his citizens and had half-eaten his brother in her rush to get away from him, and finally to sewing him back together and then ''abandoning him yet again''.
