* CharacterRerailment: Some of Bugs' entries in the early 60s reverted him slightly to his earlier more hyperactive persona. According to Robert Mckimson this was deliberate, as some of the creative team thought Bugs had become too reserved and bland.

* SophomoreSlump: The second official Bugs cartoon, "Elmer's Pet Rabbit" is commonly regarded as one of the worst in the series, owning to Bugs's ''extreme'' JerkAss behavior, off-model use of yellow-colored gloves, a voice that doesn't sound anywhere close to his iconic semi-Brooklyn accent, as well as the sloppy timing that Chuck Jones's earlier efforts suffered from.
** In fairness, "Elmer's Pet Rabbit" is only nominally considered to be a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Warner Bros. slapped a "Bugs Bunny" title card at the beginning of the cartoon to quickly exploit the unexpected success of the previous ''AWildHare''. In actuality, both cartoons were in production at the same time using different variations of the goofy grey rabbit Looney Tunes had been using in numerous cartoons at that point. "Tortoise Beats Hare" is the more proper second Bugs cartoon.

**"Bully for Bugs" features Bugs attempting to burrow to the Coachella Valley for "the Big Carrot Festival" before he misses his left turn at Albuquerque and ends up in Spain. 50 years later, making a pilgrimage to a music festival in the Coachella Valley would become an annual occurrence for a lot of people.

* FandomRivalry: Bugs and MickeyMouse have been the face of two competing animation studios for decades and several pieces of satirical media have depicted the two as enemies... [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit even though they've been known to parachute jump together]].

* ValuesDissonance: "[[CensoredEleven All This and Rabbit Stew]]", and most infamously, "Bugs Bunny Nips The Nips". The latter even got the first "Golden Age of Looney Tunes" laserdisc set recalled when it was included on it, replacing it with Racketeer Rabbit. If you can find an unaltered copy of that laserdisc set with the Nips cartoon on it, you've got a nice collectors item on your hands.

* UnfortunateImplications: Happens in many shorts, often as a result of ValuesDissonance.
** In "Broomstick Bunny", the ugly, fat, green-skinned Witch Hazel accidentally gets transformed into a beautiful, slender, white woman by drinking a beauty potion. When she consults her magic mirror, the "genie" in the mirror instead tries to grab her, and then pursues her on a magic carpet as she attempts to flee on her broomstick. This is treated by Bugs (and clearly meant to be seen by the audience) as [[BlackComedyRape funny]].

* BrokenBase: While almost everybody agrees that the Bugs from 1945 through about 1954 is awesome, there tends to be debate over his characterization in earlier and later cartoons:

** The 1940-1944 Bugs: A hilarious ScrewySquirrel or an outright bully who torments people for no reason other than personal pleasure?
** The 1955-1964 Bugs: An {{Adorkable}} protagonist or calm and easygoing to the point of being a FlatCharacter?

** The icing on the cake is that Bugs doesn't mind at all to kiss him or be held by him, in fact, he seems to ''enjoy'' it. Then again, he is a savvy, [[KarmicTrickster iconic trickster]] and a MagnificentBastard to boot...
