* FirstInstallmentWins: As with most Disney franchises based on films in [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon the Animated Canon]], the original film is easily the most fondly remembered and the best-written part of the franchise, while the rest have mostly (ironically) been left behind and forgotten ([[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Japan's fondness for the franchise being the exception]]). Especially notable when the franchise was added in ''Disney Infinity'' in ''2.0'', where Pleakley was still working for the United Galactic Federation in ''Stitch's Tropical Rescue'' Toy Box Game, the Pelekai residence appears in the Lilo's Tropical Sky skydome in its original appearance (before it was destroyed by Jumba and Stitch) and, ignoring any player-made Toy Boxes, there's nary a reference to any part of the franchise post-original film in sight.[[labelnote:*]]Although one of Stitch's quotes where he demands someone to make him a sandwich might be a ''very'' subtle reference to Reuben.[[/labelnote]] Perhaps most {{egregious}}ly, Splodyhead was erased from the red pillow on [[Disney/BigHero6 Fred's]] "Blue Ninja Bed" when it appeared in ''Disney Infinity 3.0'', but not Stitch from the blue pillow.

** Angel. Even though she is one of the more popular experiments in the franchise, becoming a {{Breakout|Character}} EnsembleDarkhorse, there are ''Lilo & Stitch'' fans who do not like her because she was only introduced [[SatelliteLoveInterest just to give Stitch a love interest]] and nothing else. ''The Series''[='=] producers can be blamed for not knowing what to do with her ([[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter as with a lot of other characters]]) in terms of characterization and not putting a effort to go past that due to [[ExecutiveMeddling their own dislike of her]]. [[Anime/{{Stitch}} The anime's]] [[TookALevelInJerkass characterization of her]] does not help matters.

*** Sparky (221), likely because of his role in ''WesternAnimation/StitchTheMovie'', [[ShockAndAwe his powers]], and for being UglyCute. He was even popular enough to be a mandatory BossBattle in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', and received recurring appearances in [[Anime/{{Stitch}} the anime]].

*** Splodyhead (619) seems to also be one, considering his fight against Slushy (523) in that experiment's episode (and the extensive reuse of scenes from that fight in [[ClipShow "Ace"]]) and his [[TheCameo cameo]] in ''Disney/BigHero6''.

*** Angel (624), for being a CuteMonsterGirl and DistaffCounterpart of Stitch, becoming a BreakoutCharacter for the franchise. She is so popular despite her limited appearances[[note]]in fact, her popularity is why she avoided being a OneShotCharacter[[/note]] that she has more merchandise ''than Lilo'' according to [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Angel#Trivia The Disney Wiki]] (although nearly all of them are [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disney Parks]] merchandise), and is even considered a major character on Wiki/{{Wikipedia}}'s [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lilo_&_Stitch_(franchise)#Cast_and_characters article for the franchise.]]
*** Reuben (625), for his laid-back, [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] personality. Helps that, as a major character, he appeared in more episodes in ''The Series'' and the ''Stitch!'' anime than any other experiment besides Stitch himself.
*** Sparky (221), likely because of his role in ''WesternAnimation/StitchTheMovie'', [[ShockAndAwe his powers]], and for being UglyCute. He was even popular enough to be a mandatory BossBattle in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', and received recurring appearances in [[Anime/{{Stitch}} the anime]].
*** 627, due to the appealing concept of a tough experiment [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter who's better than Stitch]], and who would have likely become a rival to him had he received more appearances.
*** Bonnie (149) and Clyde (150), due to their personalities and OutlawCouple dynamic, although Bonnie is the more popular of the two with her more appealing design and {{Tomboy}}ish personality. They are popular enough to be character selections for fanfics on Website/FanFictionDotNet.
*** Leroy, despite being a pretty {{Flat|Character}} {{Doppelganger}} of Stitch [[OneShotCharacter who only appeared in one]] [[WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch television film]], is also a popular experiment nonetheless, and has even received a Tsum Tsum plush.
*** Other experiments who are noticeably popular include Yin (501), Yang (502), Felix (010) and, most peculiarly, Slushy (523) and Sample (258). Some of the experiments above also appeared as [[https://www.flickr.com/photos/10152427@N08/5895144410 costumed characters]] in [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Tokyo Disneyland]] alongside the main duo, namely Angel, [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/disney/images/d/d1/060415TDL1hob2909625-200.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20110624034340 Reuben,]] Sparky, 627, Felix, and Sample. Angel and Sparky have also appeared in Disneyland Paris. Going even further, Angel even appeared on a 2014 Walt Disney World Annual Passholder-exclusive pin representing the Magic Kingdom, even though she has never made a costumed appearance in the American Disney parks, and the ''Lilo & Stitch'' franchise has been dormant in North America since the end of ''The Series'' in 2006 (save for the very brief run of the anime's English dub on Creator/DisneyXD in 2011).



* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Japan Loves Stitch. This really cannot be understated. Stitch often features more prominently than the likes of Mickey Mouse on Disney merchandise and publicity. They love him so much they got [[Anime/{{Stitch}} an anime adaptation]] of him!

* FanPreferredCouple: There are quite a lot of fanfics and fanart that pair Lilo up with Stitch. {{Squick}} or {{Squee}} By comparison, Keoni Jameson (her crush in ''The Series'') has almost no stories involving him in a happy relationship with Lilo, and even Angel breaks up with or has already broken up with Stitch in some fics. (Although, at least several [=LxS=] authors do have her maintain a good friendship with the main duo, rather than have her completely reject them, probably because the rejection of family would go against the main theme of ''[='=]ohana'' and all that.)
