** Grunkle Stan and [[WesternAnimation/RickandMorty Rick Sanchez]] has gained popularity on Tumblr. Probably due to their shared [[JerkWithaHeartofGold Jerkass]] [[BadassGrandpa Grandpa/Grunkle]] status. The fact that the creators of the shows, Alex Hirsch and Justin Roiland, are friends and like to throw in references to each other in episodes doesn't help (or does, depending on whether you ship them or not).

** Ford's query to Dipper about whether he doesn't feel suffocated by the expectancy to always be with Mabel rings far more true than the show probably intended given that just a few episodes later, [[spoiler:Dipper is forced to give up an academic career he was excited about for the sake of being with Mabel]].

** The HeroicSacrifice of Big Henry is played for maxiumum tear-jerking drama, so much SO that it would be tragic if it weren't the death of a [[ItMakesSenseInContext golf ball gnome]] sacrificing himself so ''Mabel can get a hole-in one.''

** [[spoiler: Despite attaining godlike power by entering the physical world and throwing the town into a living nightmare, [[BigBad Bill Cipher]] is notably less threatening during the series finale then he was as a paranoia inducing mysterious psychic menace, becoming a rather lazy frat boy of a demon who depends on goofy minions to hunt down the townsfolk while he parties, is stymied by a completely unexplained energy field around the town, puts Mabel inside a LotusEaterMachine that proves fallible despite his boasts to the contrary, experiences crippling physical pain when his giant, easily targeted eye is damaged, and is ultimately defeated by a fairly simple ClothingSwitch after leaving a pair of identical twins alone together for a significant amount of time.]]

** Not to mention ''{{WesternAnimation/Coraline}}'', ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman'', and ''{{VideoGame/Psychonauts}}''. The four canons together make up a popular crossover called "''SugarWiki/Mystery Kids''."

* NarmCharm: Big Henry's HeroicSacrifice is played so utterly straight that many viewers admitted to crying over the death of a [[ItMakesSenseInContext mini golf gnome.]]

* BaseBreakingCharacter:
** Robbie has his fans, seeing him as a great recurring {{Foil}} to Dipper, and also some who dislike him, seeing him as a {{Jerkass}} and TheBully. He also suffers from inevitable DieForOurShip at the hands of Wendy/Dipper fans.
** [[AlphaBitch Pacifica in both seasons]] was mostly treated with disdain by fans, minus the shipping factor. Fans have warmed up to her more as of ''Northwest Mansion Mystery'', as now she's stuck between the warring Dipifica and Mabifica factions.
** Mabel is one of the show's most popular characters with a huge, adoring fanbase that goes insane every time she's onscreen, but she does have her detractors who find her to be selfish, annoying and self-righteous. There are also some genuine Mabel fans who find some of her parts in Season 2 to be poorly written.
*** By "Dipper and Mabel Vs. The Future", the controversy around her has practically become a FandomBerserkButton. Discussing any conflict or problem related to her will lead to [[FlameWar curses and threats being sent your way]] from ''someone'' on tumblr, no matter your stance on the issue.
** Waddles has a big fanbase, who find him to be cute and love the dynamic between him and Mabel, but he also has detractors who believe that he causes Mabel to become selfish when he's around.
** Some fans thought that Quentin Trembley was hilarious, while others found him boring.
** Wendy, among older fans who find she doesn't fit well with the rest of the ensemble and mostly just exists for Dipper to have a quasi-love interest. She becomes this even more so in Season 2, when after [[spoiler: letting Dipper down easy in "Into the Bunker"]], her appearances in latest episodes become somewhat unnecessary due to the Wendy/Dipper [[spoiler: ShipSinking]] and have also TookALevelInJerkass in "The Love God" after [[spoiler: learning Tambry and Robbie are dating and along with Nate and Lee decided to ditch going to Woodstock with Dipper and Thompson (especially Thompson, who did not want to go back to having no friends and even sold his watch to get tickets, not much to Wendy's, Nate's and Lee's concern) against their pleas not to]].
** While [[spoiler: Stanford Pines']] introduction was well-received, arguments that he's TheScrappy and a {{Jerkass}} are fairly common, considering that he [[spoiler: punched Stan upon his return from the portal and told him decades earlier that hiding Journal 1 would be the first worthwhile thing he'd done in his life.]]
*** Ford falls into this again in "Dipper and Mabel vs. The Future", when he [[spoiler: assumes Dipper feels having a twin is "suffocating" and projects his own frustrations about his relationship with Stan onto Dipper and Mabel. Or, [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation alternatively]], when he gave Dipper a chance to develop as an individual and live separately from his sister, unwittingly causing a huge division between him and Mabel. The debate's still raging over what his motivations are.]]
** Blendin is generally liked well enough, but the base is completely split over whether his treatment and punishment is sheer ProtagonistCenteredMorality or whether it's justified because he is clearly a genuinely incompetent Time Agent and the kids did the space-time continuum a favor when they got him sacked. [[spoiler: The fact that his possession by Bill is what caused the Weirdmageddon doesn't help]].

* DesignatedHero: Mabel is meant to be a heroic {{deuteragonist}} who is stated to be a nice, cheerful girl and cared for Dipper. However, to some fans she comes across as a whiny, selfish brat who is insensitive towards the needs of her brother. The very fact that she [[spoiler:unwittingly gave the rift to [[EldritchAbomination Bill Cipher]] out of fear of having Dipper to leave her and become Ford's apprentice is the clear epitome of this trope]]. All in all, it certainly gave [[JerkassHasAPoint Ford's claims of Mabel being a burden to Dipper a lot more credibility]].
