* CreatorsPet: '''''[[KarmaHoudini Megan!]]''''' Just the very fact that she gets away with her horrid treatment towards Drake and Josh all the time and often gets rewarded things when she clearly doesn't even deserve it, combined with the fact that even in episodes that don't involve her at all have her show up out of nowhere, just to bring unsatisfying endings for the two (specifically in episodes such as ''My Dinner with Bobo'' and ''Really Big Shrimp''), make it clear that Creator/DanSchneider (somehow) enjoys the character and is completely ignorant (or, at worst, just downright uncaring) of everyone else's hatred towards the character.

It also doesn't help that even [[TheDogBitesBack when Drake and Josh give her (completely justifiable) payback]], she '''''STILL''''' has to end up on top in some way (''Alien Invasion'' and ''Tree House'' usually stand out) and she seems to ALWAYS avert the TakeThatScrappy moments. Even when she ''does'' suffer from these every once in a while, it's super mild and it's ''barely'' enough to give satisfaction towards the audience.

** [[SpoiledBrat Thornton]] from "Battle Of Panthatar" for uninviting Drake from his 16th birthday party for kissing his girlfriend when he didn't even know she was his girlfriend, [[GuiltByAssociationGag uninviting Josh for absolutely no reason at all]], AND [[UngratefulBastard still refusing to let them into the party when they present him with a great present]] (Drake's beloved Abbey Road album). Then again, he may have been intended to be a HateSink.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Drake himself. Fans either consider him a lovable {{Narcissist}} with his JerkWithAHeartOfGold moments in between or an unsympathetic {{Jerkass}} who takes advantage of [[ButtMonkey Josh]] for his own self-benefit. A bit like [[Series/KenanAndKel Kel Kimble]], him [[TookALevelInDumbass losing several levels in intelligence]] and being more of TheMillstone towards Josh in later seasons certainly does not help matters.

* CreatorsPet: Megan is a massive {{Jerkass}} who made her brothers miserable for no reason yet got away with everything and infuriated the fandom to the point they legitimately wanted her killed off. For some reason, showrunner Dan Schneider was completely unaware of this.

* TakeThatScrappy: Moments with Megan are ''incredibly'' mild compared to other [[TheScrappy Scrappies]] (due to being a CreatorsPet), but there are ''a few'' moments where she gets this treatment.

** They also fall into this in ''Steered Straight'' when they threaten Drake and Josh with prison after they used fake [=IDs=] to get into a concert. While using fake [=IDs=] isn't the right thing to do, the fact that Drake and Josh never do anything truly illegal (they just wanted to see the band and weren't drinking alcohol) and Walter and Audrey even say they're sending them to the program for things that ''clearly'' weren't their fault just makes them look more inconsiderate than [[WellIntentionedExtremist well intentioned]]. [[AlasPoorScrappy Though, it's still easily to feel sorry for Walter when Drake and Josh]] ''[[AlasPoorScrappy leave him in the closet handcuffed with duct tape on his mouth]]'' [[AlasPoorScrappy and nobody even]] ''[[AlasPoorScrappy seemed to care]]''.

*** '''Instead''': He not only withholds the information to his family at all times to avoid getting their hopes up, but makes up BlatantLies as cover stories that only dig himself deeper, and eventually costs himself his job opportunity when Drake and Josh punish the lady for "cheating on" their dad.
