** Item-wise, there are MANY items that are just outrageously adorable. Two specifically come to mind: Gin the Kitty, which looks like a regular playful kitten; and the Kitten Star, a golden cat with his hair shaped like a star and in all sorts of ridiculously adorable poses. Too bad it's just as ridiculously rare and worth around 40 million gold.

* ScrappyMechanic: The in-site dream avatar builder. They deliberately take it down for several days whenever they plan on releasing new gear, so to "avoid spoilers" (as opposed to, you know, setting the builder to not show unreleased content), meaning it's been offline significantly longer than it's been online in the time it's existed, but in the extremely rare pockets of time where it ''is'' available, it's a user-unfriendly mess. Adding insult to injury is that this mechanic was only added sometime after Gaia took down a [[ReplacementScrappy widely-beloved unofficial dream avatar builder]] on outright hypocritical reasons. To add insult to injury, ''to this day,'' official FAQs on the website still link to tektek, the site that hosted this builder.

* UnfortunateImplications: Easter 2k12 Grunnygeddon, which involved Gaians capturing baby grunnies ([[ExplosiveBreeder birthed by Diedrich]]) and either sending them to the adoption facility or turning them over to the Easter Bunny and having them homogenized.

* CreatorsPet: Diedrich. A lot of users find him really annoying, and it doesn't help that Gaia seems to think he needs stuffed into every other event. It doesn't help that Diedrich is occasionally scripted to post trivia in threads at random, much to the despair of many a roleplayer and vendor. Oh, and the spamming often ends up bumping threads with serious TOS violations because the bot has no means of discretion. Oops.

** Every update, no matter how small or grand, will often be met by thousands of angry users chanting TheyChangedItNowItSucks. When the admins initiated a 2% tax in the market place, it was pretty bloody for a while.

* DemonicSpiders: Kokeshi dolls. Woe betide if they gang up on you... and they always do.
** They're non-aggressive. If you'd rather not have to deal with half a screen's worth of them, don't bug them.

** Fluffs. In the first two areas, they're harmless little things, but from Zen Gardens on, if you piss off a fluff you usually start regretting it pretty quick.

** The Flying Pink Gift Boxes. A flock of giant, winged, slobbering gift boxes with huge teeth flying after you screaming "FILL THE BOX!"

* FanDumb: It's everywhere on the site. Starting with A/M/C... actually, it's safe to say people really love defending their favored pieces of media...
** The trolling of [=GOnline=], which was meant to be a Chinese "sister site" to Gaia.
** "KANOKO [[HalloweenCosplay DRESSED AS HATSYA]]?! THAT IS SICK AND WRONG AND [[DisproportionateRetribution I HOPE SHE DIES A HORRIBLE DEATH]]." No, seriously, ''someone did this''.
** Because Louie Von Helson appeared when the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series was approaching the peak of its popularity, certain fans assumed he ''must'' have been inspired by Edward Cullen. Aside from having ''nothing'' in common with Edward (aside from being a vampire, and that's debatable), he's clearly inspired by [[http://vampirechronicles.wikia.com/wiki/Louis Louis]] from the InterviewWithTheVampire film.
*** This is parodied when Louie becomes an assistant at Edmund's store. If you talk to him, among other things, he gets annoyed at you asking if he sparkles and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny says that the question is racist]].
* {{Fan Hater}}s - 4chan and SA. To be fair, there were a lot of Gaian trolls on 4chan during its cancer month...
** As mentioned above, Gaian trolls to GOnline.
