** There's a surprisingly lack of gore artwork within the fandom. It doesn't pop up nearly as much as you'd expect for the series. Instead fans opt for more realistic violence and grimdark.

** The Ants. The viewer is suppose to feel bad for them because Sniffles tries to eat them. But how can we possibly feel sorry for them when they torture Sniffles in ways that not even Fliqpy (the closest thing the series has to a main antagonist, excluding Lifty & Shifty) would put his victims through?

** The second half of ''A Sucker For Love''. Most of the episode is a random montage of Nutty's fantasy about loving, dating, marrying, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick impregnating]], murdering for, and dying old with a box of chocolates.

* CultClassic: Although, it's not as popular as it used to be, it still has a decent-sized fanbase [[LongRunner after all these years]].

* AuthorsSavingThrow: After the backlash the TV series got for giving Sniffles overly brutal and painful deaths (''Tongue in Cheek'', ''In a Jam'' and, to a lesser extent, ''I've Got You Under My Skin'' and ''As You Wish'') that went way beyond what happened in his earlier appearances, season 3 either had his deaths be instantaneous, thus painless, or had him not die at all. Season 4 seems to be continuing this trend.

** Season 4 seems to be much more merciful to the likes of Petunia and Cub. They either live (''A Vicious Cycle'', ''Spare Tire'', ''Put Your Back Into It'', ''Dream Job'', and ''A Handy Nanny'') or their deaths are, for the most part, instantaneous (''Going Out With a Bang'',''You're Kraken Me Up'' and ''Camp Pokeneyeout''). Considering these characters have had extremely painful deaths in the past, it's nice to see them not getting the short end of the stick.season.

** Is Lumpy a [[MooseAreIdiots dimwitted moose]] that is a threat to civilization, or is he just trying to help his friends, but keeps on making careless mistakes that lead to their deaths?

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Specific fandom trends suffer from this. Of note are the [[OriginalCharacter fan character]] Ale and more elaborate takes on stories involving this show.
** Ale, first and foremost, was a fan character so popular, fans tended to [[WordOfDante mistake her for a canon character]]. But then [[FollowTheLeader more fan characters with her basic template]] (often female; wears military outfit or, if not, more complex-looking outfit compared to even the [[FullyDressedCartoonAnimal fully-clothed canon characters]]; can flip out like Flippy; often made as a SelfInsert to [[WishFulfillment be with Flippy]]) show up, and the term "Flippy-sue" is coined as a protest against this practice. Her creator later considered her work as an OldShame and no longer allowed anyone to involve Ale in their HTF fanworks. Even then, the Flippy-sue trend is still going on as part of SturgeonsLaw, which often tires the fans and is usually the main point raised when criticizing the fanbase.
** The inverse of the above (Flippy-sues in general) also suffers from this. Back then, jumping on the hate bandwagon was considered a "true fan" thing to do. But consider that the Flippy-sue trend won't die anytime soon thanks to SturgeonsLaw. Eventually, even other fans have become ''sick of Flippy-sue haters'' as much as or even more so than the fans that made said characters. In their defense, hating on something that's already inevitable in a fandom is pretty much pointless. Expect "Fandom Nazi" argument when it comes to this.
** Elaborate stories involving HTF. Back then, this was a popular way of expanding the show in fanworks (see (now-retired) zolrac3005's works as a more popular example, which is helped by his ability to apply that to his near-show-perfect Flash animation). It also helps that the show has (almost) negative continuity, allowing fans to have their freedom in developing their own HTF stories. Fan characters are often involved, but back then they were mostly acceptable (SturgeonsLaw is still strong even back then, however). But ClicheStorm and a flood of poorly-made fan characters occurred, causing fans to complain that said stories made the show look InNameOnly. Nowadays, fans still have their own takes on complex HTF stories, but it's rare for them to get any sort of praise, even the ones that involve exclusively the canon cast.
** The idea of human [[OriginalCharacter fan characters]], while the whole concept results in a BrokenBase of its own and regardless whether you support the idea or not, has become this ever since [[WordOfGod Kenn Navarro confirmed that humans don't exist in the world of HTF]].
