* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Zim, Dib, Gaz, Prof. Membrane and almost every JhonenVasquez character. They have too much psychological complexity.

** However, this being JhonenVasquez, "favorite character" might also translate into "favorite character to torture".

* SendingStuffToSaveTheShow: The fan group Operation Head Pigeon spammed the Nickelodeon executives using phone calls and message boards. The group has prompted a Zim marathon, putting it back on Nicktoons, and a best-of DVD entitled "Operation Doom". If the DVD sells well, they hope more seasons will be greenlighted. JhonenVasquez has said that while he doesn't think the show will be brought back, he appreciates the group for giving hell to Nickelodeon.

** During the time skip between the show and the comic Dib has locked himself in his room staring at camera footage of places zim might be not even leaving to eat.



* JustEatGilligan: Dib has access to Takís ship so not only does he have proof of alien technology he can also go out into space to find more benevolent aliens.
** Given that Zim has made Dib the laughing stock of the entire universe this is most likely no longer an option



** Zimís plan in issue 1 pretty much cements him as this. Utilizing GoodNeedsEvil Zim knew that if he simply laid low Dib would become a Hikikomori as he waited for him to return. So that by the time he did Dibís body would be completely useless and unable to stop him.
--> '''Zim''': ''just look at you! I knew that if I laid low long enough, youíd sit there, waiting, your body growing more and more useless. You would be helpless to stop me. Now Dib, watch helplessly with your nasty weak self.. watch as Zim takes on your planet unopposed.''
** Then it turns out that it was actually a GambitRoulette meant to embarrass Dib by broadcasting hiss training montage from the slob he was in issue 1 across the entire galaxy and transmit the sound of laughter from every being in the galaxy.

*** Issue 5 can also be viewed as this for her.
** Zim kidnapping Prisoner 777ís children and threatening to obliterate them if he didnít provide Zim with the information he aske for no matter how ludicrous it was.

** Or Paranormal phenomenon could just be SoLastSeason. Not only is the universe itself weird with nobody batting an eye with people like miss bitters and old kid. Gaz can easily find and take snap chats with Big foot and it is possible to resurrect the dead so Dibís obsession could come across as being prejudiced and bigoted to people who are no longer considered abnormal merely different.
*** Gaz trolling Dib by taking pictures with Bigfoot, who posts them online.

* HellIsThatNoise: [[NightmareFuel/InvaderZim Unsurprisingly]]
** "Dark Harvest" gives us the sound of a pigeon cooing - warning you that Zim is nearby and is going to try and steal your organs, replacing them with something else...

** The Barry White-style music playing as Ultra Peepi stomps down the street in "Hamstergedon." Apparently, this was only done because he was accidentally animated with a bizarre swagger and [[ThrowItIn Jhonen told Kevin Manthi to roll with it]].

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Gaz isn't universally despised, but the people who do dislike her tend to do so quite strongly. To her fans she's a funny, tough, scary but {{badass}} force of nature everyone on the show thinks twice about crossing, not to mention it's implied she's like that because everyone around her (sans Membrane) is so stupid. On the contrary, detractors view her as a selfish, cruel, vindictive hypocrite who lashes out violently over the most trivial things without any sense of responsibility or remorse and always [[KarmaHoudini gets away with it.]]

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Jhonen Vasquez admitted that, as misanthropic as the show already was, Dib's abusive sister and neglectful father were ''too'' cruel to find funny, and when creating the comics, rewrote Gaz from a FlatCharacter to a more dynamic AnnoyingYoungerSibling and had Prof. Membrane interacting with his children a little more. All for the sake of making the cruelty funnier, of course.
