*** Some fans also don't like how [[ItsPopularNowItSucks her popularity]] [[SpotlightStealingSquad has drawn other fans' attention away]] from all the other experiments, especially considering all the merchandise she has compared to everyone other than the title characters themselves. It's worse in the West where she's the ''only'' non-Stitch experiment getting any merchandise released there to this day.

** Angel. Even though she is one of the more popular experiments in the franchise, becoming a major character a few years after her debut, there are ''Lilo & Stitch'' fans who do not like her because of her personality ([[Anime/{{Stitch}} the anime's]] [[TookALevelInJerkass characterization of her]] not helping matters) and/or for being a relatively FlatCharacter who was only introduced [[SatelliteLoveInterest just to give Stitch a love interest]]. ''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. There's also a DieForOurShip mentality against her among some [[InterspeciesRomance Lilo/Stitch]] shippers, going out to portray her in a negative light in some fanfics.

** Lilo. The poor girl has no friends, has lost her parents, she's about to be taken from her sister, and her "dog" runs away. And she just copes with it all somehow. Why does she get cursed so badly?!

Why does she get cursed so badly?!badly?! It doesn't stop there, though, as [[spoiler:Lilo gets captured by Gantu and before Stitch rescues her, she starts crying because she thinks she'll never see Nani again.]]

** Lilo is also this for reasons described under AlternativeCharacterInterpretation in the section for the first film below. Japan is probably the biggest case for her fitting this trope, considering how they replaced her with a more idealistic, less problematic girl in the anime.

** SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: On the other hand, ''Disney's Lilo & Stitch'' for UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance was a surprisingly well-made and reasonably difficult 2D action-platform game, with RunAndGun gameplay similar to ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' and very good animation.

As a result, it got a sequel (albeit made by a different developer and based on ''The Series'') called ''Lilo & Stitch 2: Hämsterviel Havoc''.

* {{Fanon}}: The many, ''many'' [[SailorEarth fan-made designs and descriptions of experiments that have still yet to be seen in the franchise]]. Even worse is the fact that the "[[TheWikiRule Lilo & Stitch Wiki]]" on Website/{{Wikia}} actually treats many of these fan designs and descriptions as ''canon'' by providing many articles about them, providing short descriptions on its full list of experiments, and using many fans' artwork (most likely without their permission) as the closest thing to these unseen experiments' official art.[[note]]This is compounded by the fact that one of users running the wiki is an admin on Wikia's Disney Wiki and [[ControlFreak copy-pastes nearly every edit by any user]] to ''Lilo & Stitch''-related articles between the two wikis (thus resulting in Disney Wiki having similarly high amounts of non-canon information), [[UpToEleven along with some other, lesser wikis based on the franchise]].[[/note]] Fans who took these as canon even edited [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki's]] list of experiments numerous times to add all this unprofessional non-canon information over there, forcing its users to clean up after them.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Website/{{Cracked}} [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-movies-kids-watched-again-as-cynical-adult/ points out that Bubbles' concern for Lilo makes more sense when you realize that Nani is an irresponsible guardian,]] which is to be expected of someone so young who was more or less forced into guardianship. (There are many, many commenters on the article who would disagree, however.)

** There are quite a lot of fanfics and fanart that [[InterspeciesRomance pair Lilo up with Stitch]]. {{Squick}} or {{Squee}}[[note]]Some fans try to get around the interspecies issue by having Lilo become an experiment herself (or, more rarely, by having Stitch become human), which opens up a whole other can of worms that we won't discuss here.[[/note]] By comparison, Keoni Jameson (her crush in ''The Series'') has virtually 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 Lilo/Stitch 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. )

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: This traditionally-animated creator-driven film was praised for being a funny, charming movie enjoyable for all ages with a touching, surprisingly dramatic and realistic story underneath its weird exterior. Unfortunately, despite this film's success, it was released during the rise of computer-animated films such as Creator/DreamWorksAnimation's ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}''[[note]]released a year before ''Lilo & Stitch'' and spawned [[CashCowFranchise a hugely successful]] [[Franchise/{{Shrek}} franchise]][[/note]] and Creator/{{Pixar}}'s ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'',[[note]]released a year after ''Lilo & Stitch'' and became the highest-grossing animated film at the time[[/note]] which hampered its mainstream potential. [[TheNewTens Nowadays,]] widely-released traditionally-animated films are dead, and lots of animated films and TV shows are creator-driven efforts with heaping doses of humor, charm, drama, realism, and weirdness that far surpasses ''Lilo & Stitch''[='=]s levels. Not helping ''Lilo & Stitch'' was Disney's [[ExecutiveMeddling mangled handling]] of the franchise that spawned from it with often [[SoOkayItsAverage lackluster]], too kid-friendly results, and the later departures of Creator/ChrisSanders and Dean [=DeBlois=] that resulted in them joining [[Creator/DreamWorksAnimation Disney's biggest rivals]] to create the much more commercially and critically successful ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' franchise, which probably have led to Disney seeing the ''Lilo & Stitch'' franchise as "damaged goods" (at least in the West).
