Added DiffLines:

*** [[LesYay Gaz/Tak]] has a fair number of shippers. The two never exchange a word, and only interact when Gaz helps Zim and Dib defeat her.

** Dwicky as well. He at least tried to help Dib, which endears him to some (many even [[TeacherStudentRomance pair them]]), but the combination of tricking him and then leaving Earth with the camera makes him hated by others.

* SelfishEvil: Zim on occasion.
* SelfishGood: Dib in the earlier episodes. All he seemed to care about was capturing Zim and proving that aliens are real, before caring about the world more.

* Though the series-wide references to Dib as insane probably don't help it, nor the ParentalNeglect, the bulk of Professor Membrane's reputation as an abusive parent probably comes from the Halloween episode, where he blithely lets Dib be sent to an insane asylum when Dib is not crazy, just suffering side-effects from using Professor Membrane's prototype trans-dimensional viewing device, something that Membrane himself admits exists.
* On a more humorous note, GIR is more often-than-not depicted with his famous dog suit in most fan art and merchandise rather than what he really [[CuteMachines looks like]].

** Torque Smacky is a weird case. In the few scenes he appeared in, he never really did anything mean to Dib, but in fanfiction he is almost always derailed into a JerkJock who delights in kicking around Dib and/or Zim like a football.

* SeasonalRot: Some consider the later episodes ("Mortos Der Soul Stealer", "Zim Eats Waffles", "Gaz, Taster of Pork" which is considered to be the weakest episode of the show.) to have suffered a significant drop in quality.

* 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. Creator/JhonenVasquez has said that while he doesn't think the show will be brought back, he appreciates the group for giving hell to Nickelodeon.

** RoboShip: GIR/Mimi, Tak's SIR unit. Girl/MiniMoose too, though this is even rarer.

** GIR is popular to an absolutely absurd degree. To go by merchandising, not only is he the most popular character in the show, his popularity might actually ''exceed'' the show's, as people have been known to buy GIR memorabilia despite having never seen ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. As the creators themselves put it, "America loves GIR!"

* AndTheFandomRejoiced: Fans literally ''harassed'' Nick for a third season or at least closure to the show for it's abrupt cancellation, with of course Jhonen's usual ShrugOfGod regarding the show would come back and such. Come April 4th of 2017 where Nick announces a ''90 minute film'' for the show, and '''yes''', Jhonen himself confirmed it. CueTheFlyingPigs indeed.
