* 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.]]

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

* CreatorsFavorite: Dib was said to be Jhonen Vasquez's favorite character, and he is generally very well liked by the fandom but isn't nearly as recognized as GIR.
** However, this being Creator/JhonenVasquez, "favorite character" might also translate into "favorite character to torture".
** Based on [[http://www.avclub.com/article/invader-zim-creator-keeping-his-absurdist-humor-gr-221693 recent interviews]], it now seems as though he has a (more positive) favoring towards Gaz, referring to her as the character he'd most prefer to spend time (partially since they both find Dib and Zim to be awful).

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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* 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.
