** In Act 7, however, he did indeed play a part in rebuilding civilization with a full real-life Can Town, but the point still stands.

* {{Flanderization}}: WV and his desire to become a Mayor utterly consumes his personality. We never get to follow his perspective after [S] Cascade, and as a result all of the development and dimension he used to have as an ex-revolutionary traumatized by the loss of his army and dreading what he may become in the future gets utterly forgotten. He's nothing more than "that cute mayor guy that Dave loves so much" for the entirety of the rest of the comic.

* AssPull: Some plot developments are dubiously this, given that Andrew often writes unforeseen twists simply because it's fun. Many of them fall into "retroactive foreshadowing", as it is often referred to, but at the time of writing were still largely pulled from nowhere. Davesprite's survival is perhaps the biggest example of an AssPull, though many others exist. This unfortunately becomes more prominent in Act 6.

** The Omegapause. Some say it's excusable, due to Hussie needing a slight bit more time to prepare the finale updates and being busy with ''{{VideoGame/Hiveswap}}''. Others say it's inexcusable, given how absurdly long the Gigapause was and the fact that Hussie has a whole studio dedicated to making ''Hiveswap''. Not helping matters is that the previous hiatus (The Gigapause) had Webcomic/ParadoxSpace to tide fans over. It's absent for the Omegapause due to it's difficulties in funding.

** Rose Lalonde resembles a darker version of ''ComicBook/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch''. In 2014, Archie Comics launched ''ComicBook/ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina'', which is a darker, horror-themed version of Sabrina.
** The final animated sequence actually turns ''Homestuck'' into an anime, which is not only something the fans tried to do for giggles, but also makes all the anger toward ''Homestuck'' cosplayers at anime conventions seem ironic with this in mind.

Sabrina, whose new design looks ''even more'' like ''Rose''.

"Homestuck is my favorite anime" also used to be a frequent meme.

* FanficFuel: Act 7 ends with our heroes living together happily on a newly created universe. The fandom, naturally, jumped on the potential for fluffy, domestic stories about post-victory relaxation.

** [[TwoWordsObviousTrope Two words:]] [[GrandFinale Act 7]]. Any pretense of still resembling flash animation is obliterated as Homestuck finally goes full anime, showing the new Genesis Frog being born, Vriska and the ghost army confronting Lord English and unleashing the juju, Caliborn destroying his own God Tier clock and gaining immortality, Alt!Calliope destroying the Green Sun, and a flash-forward showing [[EarnYourHappyEnding the kids, trolls, and Prospitians and Dersites living happily on a rebuilt Earth]].

** Act 5 Act 2 just keeps getting bleaker and bleaker to the point where some fans just don't want to follow it anymore. Fortunately ItGetsBetter as the rest of the human kids ascend to Godtier, Jade using her new powers to save all the planets and their inhabitants in the kids' session from the Scratch, and there seems to be no more troll deaths.

* FanHater: The work has recieved fire from some sources, including Anime Convention {{Cosplay}}ers whose shows are crashed by excessively large Homestuck Cosplay groups. As well as people who don't believe that the story [[ItGetsBetter gets better]] in its longevity.

* ItGetsBetter:
** The beginning with John floundering about in his room is starkly different from the later parts of the comic. In fact, each Act can basically be considered a somewhat different style of story, as by the time of Act 5, the plot has become incredibly convoluted, confusing, and dramatic. Fans of ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' have been a bit put off by the drastic change in style. Note that it has been stated the slow beginning of ''Homestuck'' was intentional.
** The trolls might have been written too well, or badly, as they came across to readers as off-putting as they were to the main characters. Then twelve of them with accompanying [[WallOfText walls of text]] hijacked the story and severely throttled the pace. With CharacterDevelopment and [[ArtShift art shifts]], some managed to [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap gain sympathy enough to shed Scrappyhood]], while others sunk appropriately to LoveToHate revulsion.
