* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Self-projecting fangirls hailed Haruhi as "a good female character UNLIEK THE GIRLY AND LOVESICK WHORES". When Haruhi ''dared'' acknowledge her feelings for Tamaki and acted more emotional for a while, the fangirls threw the character under the bus "BECAUSE SHE'S LIKE THE ~OTHER GIRLS~, EW".

** Speaking of Kyoya, J. Micheal Tatum supplied some alternate interpretation of his own by suggesting that Kyoya is in love with both Tamaki and Haruhi, but wanted them to be together with each other instead of him, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy believing that they simply make more sense together than he does with either of them]].

* LGBTFanbase: Nonbinary people are fond of Haruhi, and with how she/they often says gender doesn't matter, and even early on expresses "Biologically speaking, yeah.", Haruhi is considered so as well.

Added DiffLines:

* FanonDiscontinuity: Many people, especially in the West (and especially nonbinary and trans people), ignore the episode where the boys keep insisting Haruhi is a fragile girl who should realize that. While the message of being cautious isn't something to laugh about, the way it's executed oozes with UnfortunateImplications, and to top it all off, it's the episode where Kyouya pins Haruhi down to make sure she "realizes" that she shouldn't trust so easily, and there's still enough ambiguity left after Haruhi's theory that leaves people questioning AlternativeCharacterInterpretation above. All in all, for a good deal of people, the episode didn't happen.

* IncestYayShipping: Hikaru/Kaoru of course, being a heavily invoked in-universe example and probably among the most famous anime examples out there. Even people who don't care for incest shipping often give them a pass as it's heavily PlayedForLaughs.

** Haruhi is an awful actor and her music grades are apparently no better. Her Japanese voice actress is a famous singer. Fun fact: The voice Haruhi was lip-syncing in episode 19 ''was'' actually her voice.

** Haruhi. Fans will either find her apathy and snarkiness around shoujo males whom the heroine usually blushes around 24/7 to be refreshing and serving as a better "role model" for the average teenage viewer/reader, or make her bland and contributing little to the plot other than to be a generic snarker, and find her being an oblivious DudeMagnet for no other apparent reason but that she's [[InformedAttractiveness "cute!!!"]] to be obnoxious. It also got turned around later in the manga when she realized that [[spoiler:she'd fallen for Tamaki; fans who didn't find her smitten attitude around him to be hilarious believed that she had turned into exactly the stereotypical heroine they had loved her for not being. Even as she more or less returned to her old self after calming down from her initial reaction, it still didn't keep the fans who had expected her to be a unique heroine who didn't have to end up with the male protagonist from leaving and never coming back.]]

** Haruhi [[spoiler:falling for Tamaki. Did it symbolize her CharacterDevelopment into a more caring, outgoing person, learning to love Tamaki for who he was rather than just be annoyed at his quirks, or was she regressed into a stereotypical shoujo heroine whose only purpose is to fall for the main male lead and blush like a maniac around him, taking away her indifferent streak that made her so interesting in the first place? The believers of the latter seems to be a minority however, and Haruhi did more or less return to her old self after calming down from her realization, keeping her snarkiness and ability to handle Tamaki just fine next to having romantic feelings.]]
