Added DiffLines:

** Same goes for Shush (234), who's much less feminine than Yin and was also referred to as male in its episode, yet fan wikis label the experiment as female.

----



* BaseBreaker: Angel (624). 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 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. [[Anime/{{Stitch}} The anime's]] [[TookALevelInJerkass characterization of her]] does not help matters.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Several experiments.
** 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 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 (mainly Tokyo Disneyland), 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 at 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).



* 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 franchise's main theme of ''[='=]ohana'' and all that.)
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Angel, the [[PinkGirlBlueBoy pink]] DistaffCounterpart version of Stitch introduced in ''The Series'', is ''extremely'' popular in Japan. She has something of an AscendedExtra status there.



* VillainDecay: Gantu turned from the imposing but somewhat {{Anti Hero}} thirty-something foot tall military captain from the original movie into a much shorter bumbling idiot who even proclaims that he "likes to be evil". Subverted at the end of the series when it doesn't work out for him and [[HeelFaceTurn gets his old job back.]]

* AssPull: In "Angel", Lilo only finds out Angel is working for Hämsterviel because of a tag she saw around her neck on the video Pleakley took. Angel never wore the tag any other time.

* HoYay: Pleakley. True, it can be given in the beginning his "aptitude" with Earth customs is lacking, but early on... he openly tries girl's clothing. He also seems to crush on Jumba. Ironically, this seems to be a '''Disney''' subversion of HideYourLesbians.

* TheScrappy: Keoni. He's a bland AudienceSurrogate that adds nothing to the plot, and Lilo's crush on him tends to bring out the absolute worst in her. [[CreatorBacklash Even the writing staff hated him.]]

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: In the episode where Lilo is hypnotized into acting like Mertle, they missed a perfect opportunity to have Mertle say Lilo was acting weird. Instead, one of Mertle's friends points out that Lilo is acting like her and nothing more is said about it.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Quite as few people mistook Pleakley for a woman. Which is fairly easy to assume, since he only wears dresses, and disguises himself as a lady in public.

* WhatAnIdiot: Houdini is an extremely timid, extremely gun shy experiment with the power to make things disappear. Where does Lilo reckon his "one true place" lies? As a star magician on TV, naturally.

* SoOkayItsAverage: It's a pretty decent show to watch and it has plenty of entertaining moments, but it could have been so much better if it weren't for the ExecutiveMeddling, the [[SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon 65-episode limit]], [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter the squandered potential of the experiments]], the {{Flanderization}} of the core cast, the repetitiveness of the GottaCatchEmAll focus, and Disney overmilking the franchise for what it's worth during the decade.
