* 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.

** Dib for some more, though he'd be easier to argue as a regular {{Woobie}}.
** Gaz can count as this [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation depending on your interpretation]]. See AlternativeCharacterInterpretation.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Jhonen Vasquez apparently shares a section of the fanbase's opinion that Gaz was a FlatCharacter, and is attempting to rectify this in the comics by giving her a considerable rewrite to make a more rounded and dynamic AnnoyingYoungerSibling character than she was in the actual series.

*** Supposedly, according to WordOfGod if Jhonen HAD wanted to put romance into the show he ''would'' have actually paired Zim and Gaz together, which has undoubtedly fueled support for the ship. Along with this, common descriptions of the would-have-been finale "Invader Dib" feature Zim and Gaz teaming up and eventually ruling together. However, whether or not these are true or just Jhonen being a troll and pure fan rumors is pretty much anyone's guess.

* PerverseSexualLust: A lot of it. It's that kind of fandom. The Irkens in general seem to get the most of it, perhaps because EvilIsSexy.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: This show was more grotesque than most of Nick's other works, featured things like children summoning demons and a disturbing amount of body horror (including one kid getting ''his eyes plucked out''), and was created by a man who wrote [[ComicBook/JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac a comic series about a homicidal maniac]]. It's kind of in between this and its [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids sister trope]], very clearly meant for a young teen audience, but for whatever reason Nick shoehorned it in a block that was otherwise targeted at a different demographic that the show was ''completely'' inappropriate for. That said, it's still questionable for even the ''intended'' demographic - while it's toned down from JCV's comics, it's basically a hair away from ''ComicBook/{{Squee}}'' in terms of content, which is very solidly meant for adults.

** When Dib writes his personality into an Irken ship, once it stops rampaging in confusion it ''kills itself'', suggesting Dib might hate himself as much as everyone else does or even more. Comments that were actually made by some of the original crew members also don't help.

* 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. On the contrary, detractors see her as a selfish, cruel, vindictive hypocrite who lashes out violently over the smallest things without any sense of responsibility or remorse and always [[KarmaHoudini gets away with it]].

** Also, whenever he has visions of being captured and experimented on, it's very easy to sympathize with him, as it's hardly an irrational fear for an alien to have and would be a very nasty fate indeed.
