* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Timothy O'Neill tends to enter into this territory more than a few times. He's generally a nice guy and his motives are never portrayed as anything less than well-meaning. And he's clearly not an antagonist to Daria like Mr. Li is. However, he tends to cross the line a lot with Daria whenever he singles her out to try to make her take part in activities she clearly doesn't want to be in and at one point, even submits one of her essays to a contest ''without asking for her consent''. As a side effect, this tends to make Mr. O'Neill come off as more of an inconsiderate asshole with no regard for Daria's feelings or consent on any matter than the writers probably intended him to be. As such, it also makes it harder for one to sympathize with Mr. O'Neill once he gets humiliated and bad things start happening to him.

* ValuesDissonance: A majority of the episodes show teenage girls associating with adult men, staying out late and going to places that serve alcohol.



* WhatAnIdiot: How exactly did Daria think reading ''Literature/{{Howl}}'' to an old woman would end up?

** Mr [=DeMartino=] could save himself a lot of stress if he just stopped asking Kevin and Britney questions and focused on Daria or Jodie.

** Tom gets this due to being Daria's first boyfriend and to a large extent, due to putting Daria and Jane's friendship in real danger due to their love triangle. He's amassed quite a bit of haters who consider him a flat character, think of him as a smug guy who talks down to Daria, and generally despise him for almost ending Daria and Jane's relationship. On the other hand, he does also have his fans who feel that Daria wasn't entirely innocent either. In their view, Tom was always the one who tried to communicate with Daria in the relationship but Daria herself made very little effort to communicate back effectively. Also, Tom does get some sympathy for Daria standing him up on dates more than once but every time, Tom tries to remain patient and understanding with her. All in all, very few people feel neutral when it comes to Tom.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Generally, there are a lot of characters who deserve Daria's snark. However, during "Life in the Past Lane," Daria really goes overboard on harping on Jane's new date, Nathan, a retro guy who's really into the 1940s. Even though Nathan is only showing an interest in the culture, music, and style of the 40s, Daria decided to rain on his parade repeatedly by telling him just how racist and conformist the 40s were. And even after Nathan acknowledges Daria's criticisms and admits that his favorite era had its flaws and social inequalities, what does Daria do? ''She continues to snark at him and annoy him'' to the point where Nathan, quite justifiably, decides that he would really rather have as little to do with Daria as possible. Granted Nathan was eventually revealed to be a bit of an obsessive jerk towards the end of the episode but Daria's JerkAss behavior towards him before then was still completely uncalled for.
