** Old Man {=McGucket=} was a goofy joke character that was assumed to either be potentially evil or just some random background character on drugs. Come "Society of The Blind Eye", and not only is he given backstory, he's the main hero and savior of the episode!

** "Morality is relative!" has become the driving force behind all Mabel haters as proof of her "evil."



** To a much bigger extent, very few people liked Pacifica Northwest in Season 1. She seemed to exist mainly as just the sterotypical "rich popular girl" and was a jerk to Mabel. Then came the Season 2 episode "Northwest Mansion Noir," where we learn more about Pacifica's family life and why she acts the way she does. Turns out her parents trained her for her entire life to respond to commands just by ringing a bell, and they refuse to let her associate with people who they consider below their status. Pacifica finally manages to overcome her family's manipulation of her when she learns that her ancestors were all horrible people and vows to fix the family name. She then becomes a key player in saving the day, becoming a much nicer person in the process.

*** On that note, Manly Dan never goes beyond being a a bit character, and even more curious, Wendy has not a single bit of on-screen interaction with neither her father nor her brothers during the entire run of the show. The best the fans get is a bit of Dan's backstory in GravityFallsJournal3, back when he was known as "Boyish Dan".

** After receiving so much CharacterDevelopment in ''Northwest Mansion Mystery'' and befriending Dipper, Pacifica is then left OutOfFocus during the rest of Season 2 and [[spoiler:only reappears [[BackForTheFinale during the final three episodes]] with very little interaction between the Pine twins but especially Dipper.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Many fans continue to use the "Alpha Twin" comment from "Little Dipper" as a friendly, affectionate trademark phrase of Mabel's, ignoring that the phrase was actually coined by Mabel in a JerkassBall moment to bully her brother and she has since stopped using it.

** Dipper and Mabel's bright future isn't exactly that bright when you realize that [[spoiler: the events of Mabel giving the rift to Blendin and the reason that she did it is never addressed]] implying that Mabel never grew out of her selfishness and her AllTakeAndNoGive relationship with her brother especially since Dipper is forced to sacrifice his chance of apprenticeship just to reconcile with her. In worst case scenario, they could end up having a massive falling out much like Stan and Ford because she could potentially do something very selfish to prevent Dipper from leaving her, very similar to what Stan did before.



** In "The Last Mabelcorn", Mabel trys to win the approval of a Unicone who will give a lock of it's hair to anyone who is pure-of-heart and after struggling for half the episode to prove how good she is, it's revealed that that [[spoiler: Unicorns can't see into people's hearts and was putting Mabel though the ringer just to screw with her. After hearing this Mabel decided to for-go being nice and just take the hair by force. Mabel perfectly sums up the aesop at the end of the episode with the line "Morality is relative" (she needed the hair to protect her family so beating up and stealing from a unicorn was ok.)]]

** Despite being part of the main cast, Wendy [[OutOfFocus didn't appear much in the season one episodes]]. Season two mitigated some of the fans' complaints [[AuthorsSavingThrow by having her participating more with the twins' journeys]].

*** Though, [[SpoofAesop that moral was probably a joke,]] considering everyone's horrified expressions after she says it.
