** "Daddy Queerest" puts Stan in the wrong for outing Terry to his homophobic father Tank... after Terry claimed Stan's wife as his own and pushed his partner on Stan, not caring that Tank's gay-bashing was now directed toward him, and showed signs of an ArmoredClosetGay.

Not to mention Francine had spent the whole episode trying to out Terry herself anyway, [[OpinionFlipflop only to turn on Stan when he does it and it ends badly.]]

* JerkSue: As Roger's antics towards the family have become more and more reprehensible, his KarmaHoudini status has become less reliant on him being a MagnificentBastard and more just everyone being an ExtremeDoormat. His treatment of Hayley in current seasons is a glaring example, her strongest reaction to ruining her love life ''twice'' was [[PokeThePoodle stealing his shuttlecock for a badminton game]].

** ''Roger'' appears to be this in the later episodes. If he's not the main focus of the episode, he'll still manage to play a huge part in it. However, unlike the majority of other offenders of this trope, most fans don't seem to mind (key word: [[BaseBreaker Most]]).

* BaseBreaker: Roger (and Klaus to a lesser extent) is either hilarious or annoying.

* TheyJustDidntCare: It's pretty obvious that there was little to no communication going on between the people working on the "Daesong Heavy Industries" two-parter to the point where many question why it was even a two-parter at all. Part 1 starts with Stan losing his faith in religion after Steve pokes multiple holes in the Bible akin to the anti-religion episodes of ''Family Guy'' before suddenly turning into an "American Fung"-esque BizarroEpisode with Stan thinking that he is Noah and taking his family to Seoul, Korea to take over a natural gas tanker full of animals being taken to a zoo in Malaysia which he believes is the Ark. Part 2 then suddenly drops everything having to do with the first part after the ship blows up and separates the Smiths with Stan & Francine having amnesia and being stuck on an island in a parody of nature documentaries, Steve & Roger stuck on a lifeboat, and Hayley & Jeff being rescued by the Navy. By the end of part 2, Stan's crisis of faith is never resolved, there are other plot points that are either dropped (Seoul being destroyed by the flood at the end of part 1) or never explained (why was a natural gas tanker being used to transport animals?) and the entire "Two-parter" ranks alongside "American Fung" as a prime example for how ''American Dad!'' has gone downhill ever since moving to TBS.
** Given Terryís above mentioned MoralEventHorizon the fact that he ended up leaving Greg off screen just to introduce a new love interest.
*** The fact the love interest turns out to be straight makes this even worse.
** Many of Stanís DesignatedVillain moments

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Stanís status as the show's DesignatedVillain makes him this most of the time (though there are exceptions see morel event horizon above). The "Stan acts like a jerk and must learn a lesson" formula. It doesnít help that most of Stanís flaws have been given very understandable [[FreudianExcuse Freudian Excuses]], something that in a lot of cases those that he opposes donít have.

** Stanís views of the world are unique to say the least and while we see glimpses throughout the series of his life providing him with a FreudianExcuse. ďI Ainít No Holodeck BoyĒ shows us just how horrific it truly was
