* CreatorsPet - Belle, Shawn Douglas, Daniel and Melanie Jonas

* CreatorsPet - Belle, Shawn Douglas, Daniel and Daniel, Melanie Jonasand the whole Hernandez clan are characters this has been thrown at over the years.
* DorkAge: Some people are very against when the show delves into weird or supernatural storylines.


Added DiffLines:

** While a lot of people liked Will Horton, the Guy Wilson incarnation was reviled as having made one of the most likable characters on the show turn into one of the most annoying. To the point while some were sad to see the character go, the murder of Will was in some cases applauded for finally getting rid of the actor.

** Daniel Jonas: Is Daniel a good hearted laid back doctor who sometimes make a bad decision in his personal life or a serial homewrecker who will do whatever he needs to if he has the hots for a woman?



** There is also been some considerable issues with the more frequent writer switchups in recent years. As with each of these turns several storylines and pairs have flipflopped so often it becomes more irritating to keep up with. As also each switch up also seems to switch out who they want the under-cast to be at rates much faster than usual creating new divides each time. In a matter of two years, Belle and Shawn returned and left the show twice each, and are now returning for the third. Xander has been shipped off only to be brought back for another storyline three times. Eve was let go only to be returned to recurring two times before being forgotten about, etc.



* HesJustHiding: Despite WordOfGod that any characters killed off from now on will ''stay'' dead, most fans are using to believe this about Stefano, given the myriad of times he's returned from the dead.
** Unfortunately in this case [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Stefano was killed this time because Joe Mascolo, Stefano's iconic actor, suffered a debilitating stroke.]] Still, it's nice to think he really just retired to a nice Mediterranean island somewhere...

dead. Such a rule didn't really stick again and they even ran a story where Rafe and Shane made it look like Stefano was killed this time because Joe Mascolo, Stefano's iconic actor, suffered alive when they thought he wasn't. At least until they saw a debilitating stroke.]] Still, it's nice picture that wasn't a part of their plan of what appeared to think he really just retired to a nice Mediterranean island somewhere...be Stefano alive. This is probably the last official plot for Stefano now that his actor Joseph Mascolo passed away before hand.


Added DiffLines:

** Alex North who was a new character made to bring an old actor back to the show (his old role having been recast) launched into a storyline that a good chunk of fans would prefer to forget.

* Kate Roberts: only sane woman in a town of fucked up families who wants protect her son from the lunacy of the city and Sami Brady (who the whole town knows is crazy and evil), or a cold and ruthless matriarch who seeks absolute and total control over her son Lucas to make up for how she abandoned and forsaked her other children.

* StraightGay: Sonny Kiriakas comes to town to be with his parents, popular 80s couple Justin and Adrienne, and quickly reveals himself to be gay. While his parents and cousin Abigail knew prior to his arrival, most people, including his eventual love interest Will Horton, are surprised because the athletic, adventurous Sonny doesn't seem gay.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation- Marlena and her daughter Belle as selfish jerks who play their romantic suitors against each other so she can have TWO men loving her at the same time is a popular fan interpretation of the character.

** Jennifer Horton, once the NiceCharacterMeanActor reveal happened in the mid-90s when Melissa Reeves was revealed to be having an adulterous affair with a co-star. Jennifer went from the plucky girl next door who's pure heart was such that she was able to redeem a rapist who argued IN COURT that a man can rape his wife and it not being rape, to a self-absorb hypocrite who mocked her husband's post-traumatic stress disorder from having his life destroyed by the DiMeras and who was bed hopping with strangers whenever she thought he was dead.
**Sami Brady: Cold blooded sociopath or fucked up teenager who went though the trauma of losing her mother as a child, being raised by a father who turns out to be an imposture (after being told originally he had plastic surgery) and then being reunited with your real dad only to watch your mom cuck your dad with Fake-dad and try and pass off their bastard as your real dad's and then get raped by the older college age guy who you think is your friend and have him call you a liar when he gets arrested, plus out that he only was your friend because he wanted to rape your half-sister!
*Kate Roberts: only sane woman in a town of fucked up families who wants protect her son from the lunacy of the city and Sami Brady (who the whole town knows is crazy and evil), or a cold and ruthless matriarch who seeks absolute and total control over her son Lucas to make up for how she abandoned and forsaked her other children.



** Jack's death is one particularly nasty sore spot for older fans, as they brought the actor back simply so they could humiliate and kill him off once and for all, all in the name of finally freeing Jennifer Horton up to fuck other men without social stigma.
*** Hope and John fucking on a submarine, resulting in Hope becoming pregnant with John's love child. It created such a nuclear backlash online, and within fandom, that not only did the writers have to bend over backwards once the baby was born, to retcon the child being Bo's (resulting in the meme that was "Mimesex"), but they ultimately killed the child off first chance they could years later.



* TheScrappy - Carrie Brady

to:

* TheScrappy - Belle. While Carrie Bradyand Sami and Jennifer Horton all worked well in their role as the young blonde female heroine of the show, Belle was widely reviled by fans.

** Or if you happen to despise a pairing because one half happens to be a rapist. Jack and Sami are both rapists, as well as EJ, Tony, and several other characters. But apparently being 'cool', 'good-looking', 'damaged', and/or 'badass' makes the fact that committed, sometimes more than once, such a barbaric, traumatising act is a-okay.
