Lumpy. Fans either love him for his stupidity, or hate him and blame his low intelligence for most of the deaths.



** Not a character per se, but rather a ''fan animation''. To elaborate: The official HTF website (now part of MondoMedia main site) used to have a Fan Fest section, where Mondo would pick a HTF-related fan video to be featured on the website. One of these is the infamous "All Work and No Belay" (not to be confused with the later official HTF episode "All Work and No Play"). It's actually a pretty decent fanmade episode, which can quite work with the show and might end up being a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for the fan animation's creator, but the fact that it was featured during 2011 (the show was at a hiatus that time) and the fanbase was on the verge of crumbling, the fan animation had single-handedly shattered the fanbase into little pieces and caused massive CreatorBacklash both from the creator of the fan animation and the fans whose [[OriginalCharacter fan characters]] were featured (as cameos, to be exact), due to other fans, haters, and former fans '''intensely''' flaming the animation and blaming Mondo for "stealing" fanmade content as filler. Most of the people who were involved with the fan animation ended up going their separate ways.

** Toothy for his tendency to cry easily.
** Sniffles (see JerkassWoobie) and Petunia for their often exceptionally [[CruelAndUnusualDeath brutal and prolonged deaths]].

** Another thing pushing him into CreatorsPet territory is that he doesn't die quite as often as the rest of the cast. [[InvertedTrope Too Dumb To Die]], maybe?

* CreatorsPet: Lumpy for a great part of the fanbase. It doesn't help that there were only two TV episodes Lumpy didn't appear in. In some of these he didn't have much of a role other than just to be there. This is only justified by the fact that the writers seem to work on a "take the dumbest character in the series and throw him into jobs that require brains and see what happens" system.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: The whole point of the series is that the characters' gory deaths are played for laughs.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: The whole point Well of course they're adorable and cute characters dying horrible deaths. How can you possibly one-up that? Well, that's what little Cub is for. He's not even out of diapers, and he can die just as gruesome a death as any other character in the series is that the characters' gory deaths are played for laughs. series.

** The "Breaking Wind" episode. Is the episode genuinely funny or extremely abysmal due to the use of a fart joke? Is the inclusion of a ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' parody (the book that Splendid is reading) a good mockery of the book/film or [[FanDumb massively implying that the creators are actually interested in]] ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''? It doesn't help that it has similarity to Craig Moss's film that shares the same name as the episode, as both rely on ToiletHumor and gives a TakeThat to ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', which are both criticized by viewers.

*** Really Good Unicornius joining the event. To explain: Unicornius is an [[StylisticSuck intentionally poorly-drawn unicorn]] made by Oliver Age 24, who also has a channel on Mondo focusing on "How to Draw" various characters from well-known franchises in the same ugly style. There were many problems caused by this single character: '''1.''' It's made by a person who is also part of Mondo, meaning that he could pretty much take advantage of the Facebook likes due to already gaining exposure from his videos. '''2.''' It managed to stay in the first place for a long time because of the previous problem, meaning that it's meaningless for the HTF fans to join in (until the HTF crew balanced things out by also letting the second place to be included). '''3.''' [[FanDumb The fans are worried that MLP ended up spreading to their beloved show, thanks to Unicornius being, well, a "magical" unicorn]]. A few HTF fans, however, don't mind seeing the unicorn joining in, both for being a "troll"-ish submission and for having a NonStandardCharacterDesign, hoping to see him getting the "HTF style" treatment... but the latter didn't happen, he kept his badly-drawn look and sloppy animation, causing more outburst (even more so after seeing Tricksy (who placed second), who actually looks like he belongs in the show, a few scenes earlier).

** 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.
