* {{Asspull}}: In "Reborn To Be Wild" Hank claims he didn't want Bobby to be with a church group because he didn't want Christianity to be a fad to Bobby when up to then it was clear he didn't want Bobby to be with the group because the teens apart of the group liked to skate and listen to rock music, and since this was revealed at the end of the episode with absolutely no foreshadowing it comes off like a lazy attempt to make Hank look like the good guy and justify his behavior.

** Boomhauer's profession is revealed in the final episode. [[spoiler:He is apparently a Texas Ranger]]. This is clearly something that the crew pulled out of their ass at the last minute, as there is absolutely no evidence in the series that suggests Boomhauer has any ties to [[spoiler:law enforcement]] and several plots could have been avoided had he stepped in used his position.

** Hank himself. While he may be a FountainOfMemes, and his hard-work ethic and the fact he genuinely cares for his family are admirable qualities, they are often overshadowed to some fans by the fact that he is so painfully old-fashioned that he treats anything "new" (Even if it turns out to be helpful to the other characters) with utter disdain and horror. Not only that, but he tended to be so controlling of Bobby's life that anything even remotely unorthodox that interested Bobby in the slightest would cause Hank to freak out and attempt to get rid of it (IE: "Dad, look, I can (Insert activity here)" "BWAAAAAA!") It did not help at all that Hank was usually portrayed as right in whatever stance he took, as explained in the BlackHoleSue example below. In the few instances when he actually allowed Bobby to pursue his interests, Hank had an odd habit of taking over Bobby's current hobby, such as in the case of his ventriloquist dummy. All in all, Hank ends up becoming UnintentionallyUnsympathetic to some, and there are quite a few who wonder if the social worker trying to take Bobby away in episode one may have been better for him than letting Hank raise him.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Several {{one shot character}}s such as Big Jim (from "The Texas Skillsaw Massacre"), Tammi Duvall and her pimp Alabaster Jones (both from "Ho Yeah!") have pretty decent fanbases.

* CargoShip: Hank/Propane is pretty much a canon example. Then there's his truck and his lawnmower.

* HollywoodPudgy: Leanne tends to muffin-top slightly but noticeably when wearing outfits that reveal her midriff.



* MemeticMolester: Bill's gay cousin Gilbert admits to being a "creeper" and lives up to to it.

** Peggy is seen as this due to her massive {{Flanderization}} in later seasons changing her from a somewhat smug yet intelligent woman who spoke decent if rudimentary Spanish, to a {{Jerkass}} SmallNameBigEgo who couldn't speak a lick of Spanish if her life depended on it yet she acted like she was fluent in the language. It also doesn't help she became so smug in later seasons that she even tried to mooch off of Hank's popularity as a (temporary) substitute teacher in order to win yet another substitute teacher's award, and sabotaged Lucky's attempt to get his GED by giving him false answers, then automatically assumed he and everyone else in his family were bastards because no one achieved their goals before marrying, before he explained they were married in shotgun weddings.

* MemeticPsychopath: Hank's angry outbursts are easily taken out of context and there exists many memes and YouTube edits that make him look like a raging, physically abusive lunatic.

** Lucky gets a lot of hate due to being a contributing factor to the show's NegativeContinuity and very little else. The reasons being that his relationship with Luanne (combined with Luanne's {{Flanderization}}) turned her into the exact kind of person she ''didn't'' want to be in the earlier seasons), his lazy lifestyle which Hank, for some reason, mostly tolerates despite being established as treating hard work and effort seriously, and his [[AscendedExtra greater importance]] in the show's last legs despite contributing very little to the plot and not being particularly funny. Him being voiced by Music/TomPetty doesn't help matters.

** Stuart Dooley. His deep, deadpan voice and one liners are considered hilarious by many. Others think he's just a douche.
