* OlderThanTheyThink: Some fans are uncomfortable with how close Elliot and Ashley are on the first date, up to sharing a dressing room in the mall and then making out. Thing is, this isn't all that different from when Elliot was dating Nanase way back when the comic started, the two having a very physical relationship and even having a regular tradition of making out after sparing matches. Many fans may have just forgotten this due to the fact soon after Elliot started dating Sara, with the two having a generally non-sexual relationship due to them realizing afterwards they shared a much more platonic/brother-sister kind of love as opposed to a romantic attraction.
* {{OT3}}: [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook.php?id=843 Grace/Tedd/Sara]], the ship started when Sarah became Tedds assistant and fan love for the ship has grown and grown. [[ThreesomeSubtext There is also quite a bit of actual ship tease for it too.]] Like in the early comic when Grace kissed Sarah after Tedd told her too, and then scenes like [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2015 this are fairly common for the three]] after Sarah joined them. Tedd accidentally kissed Sarah, because she was transformed into Grace. [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp.php?id=205 Tedd also mentions]] [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud that he, Grace, and Sarah have all seen each other naked a lot due to clothing damage being a frequent result of their experiments.]]

** Immediately following "So A Date At The Mall" was a Question & Answer Arc, "Part 7: The Requestioning"; said filler arc went on for ''five straight weeks'' (as the creator had said he needed a break to get the next story arcs properly planned out). Q&A fillers arcs are already a BaseBreaker to the fans, but this one in particular seemed to drag, not helped that the entire theme of the arc (that everyone was shrunk so they could use a tablet computer as a backboard) was only utilized for a joke in the first couple strips and thereafter was forgotten, and that out of all the questions three of them (the equivalent of an entire week's worth of updates) weren't even about the comic.
* BaseBreaker: Ashley. Some like her for being a good match for Elliot and a generally decent person, including towards her own seeming romantic rival. Others feel Dan is trying a little too hard to make her TheWoobie. This only got worse on Elliot and Ashley's first date, where the two seems a little ''too'' into each other very quickly, with some fans already accusing Dan of falling prey to the two being StrangledByTheRedString.

* CompleteMonster:
** Damien is a sadistic mass-murderer who regularly abused those under his care and planned to not only "[[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil breed]]" with Grace to create an army, but also to use said army to commit mass genocide on the entire human race. The closest thing he has to a FreudianExcuse, his belief that [[AGodAmI he is a God and can therefore do anything he wants]], simply doesn't hold up under the weight of his crimes. Especially when one takes into account the [[ItAmusedMe obvious]] [[ForTheEvulz pleasure]] he takes in his actions.
** Aberrations are described by Immortals as being the worst of the worst as far as magic users go, as they were originally humans who use their powers to sacrifice other humans in [[ImmortalityImmorality exchange for long life]]. Only two kinds have been identified, [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]], which directly feed on other humans, and [[PuppeteerParasite Body Snatchers]], who are considered even worse by being parasitic abominations that attach themselves to other people and take full control of their bodies. They are also described as completely irredeemable, they willingly chose this path in life and usually outright revel in it, having absolutely no remorse about killing others just to benefit themselves.

** The "So A Date At The Mall" arc is over a year's worth of strips taking place over a few hours, with the majority of that being dedicated to establishing the perfect relationship between Ashley and Elliot. For those who aren't a fan of the couple, it can be a slog.

** All of these characters do have fans, however, and there are no straight out universally hated Scrapies in the comic, however.

** Ashley has had very little screen time to date, even considering her status as a newer character. Despite this, her GenkiGirl disposition, highly emotive face, and tendency to be the PluckyComicRelief in [[UpToEleven already comedic situations]] has made her a fan favorite almost instantly.
