** An advert for the third volume of ''The Mike Judge Collection'' parodies this, in the style of ''Film/BrokebackMountain''.
** Let's face it: it's their ''only'' hope of getting any.

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedVillain: Both Principal [=McVicker=] and Coach Buzzcut. They're basically school officials who are very much correct in wanting to discipline Beavis and Butt-head for their hooligan behavior. But because both Beavis and Butt-head are the actual protagonists of the show, [=McVicker=] and Buzzcut pretty much fall under the antagonist umbrella by default, even if they're totally justified in the punishments they give to Beavis and Butt-head.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Was ''extremely'' controversial in its day. However, compared to many adult animated shows thereafter like ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', the show seems equal to them.

** They've played plenty of great music videos, but Music/TheRamones' "I Wanna Be Sedated" was one of the few songs to get the boys to just shut up and rock out.
** The video for Music/BlackSabbath "Iron Man" begins playing, Butt-head can only manage "Whoa! Hey Beavis!" while Beavis freaks, saying "Check, check it out! It's...it's...it's...ahhh...ahhh....GRAHHHHH!" and then the two get to sing the signature riff IN context.
** The video for "Sober" by Music/{{Tool}} impressed them so much that, aside from [[HehHehYouSaidX briefly snickering over the name of the band]], they had nothing negative to say about the entire thing, repeatedly exclaiming that it was "cool!"

** While watching the video for "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" by Slash's Snakepit, Beavis and Butt-Head see Eric Dover (from Music/{{Jellyfish}}) and immediately ponder "what happened to Axl," thinking it's a Music/GunsNRoses video. As it would turn out, the situation with the real Guns N' Roses would become [[IAmTheBand quite the]] [[RevolvingDoorBand opposite.]]

* TheScrappy: Todd is generally disliked by fans because he's a massive JerkAss to the duo. Even though they practically worship the ground he walks on, he [[UngratefulBastard returns the favor by]] [[TheBully beating them up for only]] [[DisproportionateRetribution minor offenses]], coming to their house just to steal their party or chicks they're trying to score with, and only hangs out with them when he needs something from them. However, unlike most Jerk Asses on the show, Todd is always a KarmaHoudini.

** The episode "Butt Flambe" somehow manages to be this combined with [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funny]]. The episode begins with Beavis being taken to the hospital with third-degree burns on his butt, with Butt-Head laughing at him. But Beavis's reactions were played completely straight- he looks completely miserable and terrified during the whole episode and is practically crying, even begging the nurses "please" because he's hurting so much. Genuinely sad shots of Beavis being examined and desperately screaming "NO!" are interwoven with scenes of Butt-Head donning a doctor's disguise to sneak into operating rooms to watch the operations. Fortunately, Beavis is fine by the end of the episode, bandaged up and watching TV.

* AcceptableTargets: "Wuss music" and geeky types like Stewart (which explains why Stewart wore a shirt from the band "Winger" as a contrast to Beavis' Metallica shirt and Butt-Head's AC/DC shirt).

** At the end of "Beware of the Butt", the duo is hung from the marquee butt-naked, leading Butt-Head to make comments on Beavis' rear end.

*** Van Driessen believes Buzzcut crossed it in ''Beavis & Butt-head are Dead'' when he was not only glad they were (not really) dead, but hoping their deaths were slow and painful, and unlike McVicker, you can't really justify his hatred for the duo. They rarely mess with him, and the flashbacks shown during Buzzcut's segment of the ClipShow were of [[NeverMyFault him being a dick to them]].

** Principal McVicker crossed it in ''Test Takers'' when he decides to manipulate Beavis and Butt-head's test so that they could pass. Underhanded, but understandable. However, he really crosses it when he fired Mr. Van Driessen for calling him out on it and threatening to report it.

** ''Burger World'', pretty much in its entirety. While dumpster diving, Butthead finds a chicken sandwich with mold dripping from it and eats it. Then Beavis fries up a dead mouse and flies and gives them to [[ButtMonkey Mr. Anderson]]. The episode ''Closing Time'' also involved the duo frying up worms and selling them as curly fries.

** While the episode "Stuart Is Missing" is played for ComedicSociopathy, there's something very upsetting about Mrs. Stevenson weeping her head off thinking her son might be dead only to find out the duo ''locked him in a closet and never let him out''.

** A notable example is in 'Vidiots' when the two go to a video dating service, Beavis gives a fake name to the lady working there (Heraldo, which she interprets as Mexican), and she mistakes Beavis' sexual answers to her questions as romantic while Butt-head is doing his video, and tries calling Beavis, only for Butt-head to hang up on her, shortly after Beavis answers the door for a Woman asking to turn on "The pleasure machine" (Butt-head, as he mentioned twice in his video), Beavis thinks she is talking about the TV and slams the door on her.

** Of all the characters on the show, only the Burger World Manager comes close to matching the incompetence of the duo. Despite the fact that Beavis and Butt-head have repeatedly screwed up on the job, got him injured, and generally destroyed the reputation of Burger World, the manager has continued to employ them. This is especially egregious considering the fact that he's an employer in a real world job with every right to fire them but chooses not to, as opposed to McVicker who, as a public school official, has no choice but to put up with Beavis and Butt-head until they either graduate or choose to drop out of high school. It really says something about the Burger World Manager when unlike McVicker, he's not required by law to put up with the duo but still keeps them employed and repeatedly brings disaster upon both himself and his business.

** Stewart. He genuinely thinks Beavis and Butt-head are his friends, he keeps trusting and forgiving them and worrying about their safety no matter how many times they screw him over. Not to mention his overprotective mom and his dad trying to pin the blame on him to save his own skin more than once.

* UncannyValley: The faces look weird and realistic.
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The show's depiction of slacker culture and metalhead teenagers plants it firmly in the mid-90's. While the reboot tried hard to modernize the duo, even retconning a few of their initial traits for this purpose[[note]]In the 1993-1997 series, video games are depicted as a "nerd" hobby Stewart is into. While, in the reboot, both Beavis and Butt-Head are fans of games like Grand Theft Auto and Call Of Duty[[/note]], it still couldn't escape the show's blatant "grunge era" roots. Though, to be fair, the reboot was very clearly made for people who were fans the series in its heyday, rather than potential newcomers.
