** Alex Hirsch implied Bill Cipher's family could qualify. Not much is said about his family aside from the fact that "Bill had a worse relationship with his family than Stanley had with his family". One could only imagine what they were like if Bill turned out the way he did.
--> '''Alex Hirsch''': If you think Stan's relationship w/family is bad, Bill's is worse. Thats all I can say.

** Stan [[spoiler:willingly letting his memory get erased]] in "Weirdmageddon Part 3: Take Back The Falls" caused quite a bit of controversy among fans when [[spoiler:he ends up regaining all his memories a few minutes later thanks to Mabel's scrapbook.]] Some fans thought this turn of events [[spoiler:made Stan's sacrifice completely meaningless, and was that his recovery was an AssPull by the writers]]. Other fans though that [[spoiler:Stan deserved a happy ending and were fine with him recovering his memories, especially since McGucket had recovered them too despite repeated use of the memory gun.]]

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Ford. [[spoiler:Upon his initial introduction, many saw him as a selfish {{Jerkass}}, especially since his introductory episode was dedicated to showing and giving sympathy to Stan's side of their conflict. As episodes went on and depth was given to his character and backstory, many conceded that, despite having acted immaturely as both a teenager and a young adult, as an older adult he has very justifiable reasons for his actions. Desperately trying to make up for accidentally helping Bill jumpstart the end the world by keeping all openings to Bill's dimension shut, for instance.]]
** And then came the GrandFinale, in which [[spoiler: anyone who still hated him finally came around when he reconciled with Stan, acknowledged Stan's virtues and his own faults when it comes to their broken relationship, and had a particularly tearjerking reaction to having to erase Stan's mind and the after-effects of it.]]

** Wendy was derided in season one for being a generic "cool teen" character who didn't fit well with the rest of the main characters. Season two fixed it by leaps and bounds, first by having her join Dipper and Mabel's adventures and prove a very effective part of the team, and then having her admit the cool teen thing is [[StepfordSmiler just a facade]] and she's actually constantly stressed out.
** 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.

** In the episode The Golf War, given Big Henry sacrificed himself for it, the miner Lilliputtians do have a point that they earned the sticker.

** Taken another step further with "Not What He Seems" and the introduction of [[spoiler:Ford]] midway through season 2. "Not What He Seems" is generally regarded as the best episode of the whole show, and currently holds a 9.9 score on IMDB - a feat only notably bested by [[Series/BreakingBad "Ozymandias"]]. After NWHS, several other ''amazing'' episodes showed up, including "A Tale of Two Stans", "Dipper and Mabel vs. The Future", and the GrandFinale.
