* ToughActToFollow: Their ''entire'' filmography. Most critics agree that any Pixar film with [[TheBGrade a rating less than 90%]] is a disappointment. In fact, one of the best things you could say about the studio was that [[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} their worst recieved film]] (for [[WesternAnimation/Cars2 a time]], at least) was ''still'' a critical success.

* TrueArtIsAngsty: Their realistic depictions of depression are one of the main reasons why most of their films are critically acclaimed.

As their next film, ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'', entered [[TroubledProduction hot waters]], John Lasseter, after working on the successful Disney film ''WesternAnimation/{{Frozen}}'', caught on and decided to [[ScheduleSlip postpone it]] to save the studio further embarrassment. The next film in the roster, ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', was critically lauded as another Pixar masterpiece and a return to form... and then ''The Good Dinosaur'' finally came out, was written off as SoOkayItsAverage, became the studio's first financial flop, and left [[BrokenBase many worried]] that ''Inside Out'' was just a fluke.\\

** On whether Pixar has managed to get out of their DorkAge; some people feel that they have due to the universal acclaim of ''Inside Out'' and very positive reception of ''Finding Dory'', but others feel that they begun to get out of it with that film, with ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'' widely being considered SoOkayItsAverage and ''Finding Dory'' and ''Cars 3'' still being seen as slightly below Pixar standards.

* {{Sequelitis}}: Zig-zagged. The ''Franchise/ToyStory'' series is widely regarded as one of the best film series' of all time, while ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' is considered a very good followup to ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' (although not quite as impressive). However, ''WesternAnimation/Cars2'' and ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' to a lesser extent have been criticized for being completely unnecessary sequels.

** ''Cars 2'' began it, being the studio's first film in its entire history to be a critical flop, as well as its first since the creation of the "Best Animated Feature" Oscar not to get a nomination. Their next [[WesternAnimation/{{Brave}} two]] [[WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity films]] were [[BrokenBase incredibly polarizing]], and while ''Brave'' won the aforementioned Oscar, it was generally considered undeserving over ''Disney/WreckItRalph''.
** As their next film, ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'', entered [[TroubledProduction hot waters]], John Lasseter caught on and decided to [[ScheduleSlip postpone it]] to save the studio further embarrassment. The next film in the roster, ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', was critically lauded as another Pixar masterpiece and a return to form... and then ''The Good Dinosaur'' finally came out, was written off as [[SoOkayItsAverage aggressively mediocre]], became the studio's first financial flop and left [[BrokenBase many worried]] that ''Inside Out'' was just a fluke.
** Before all of this, John Lasseter acknowledged that the studio had entered an awkward transitional period as the original creators were [[PassingTheTorch training up-and-coming filmmakers to succeed them]], but the successors weren't turning out the kind of films they were looking for (Lasseter being the head of both Pixar ''and'' Disney also undoubtedly put a strain on his own contributions).
** Thankfully, ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' was successful and well-enough received to save the studio some face and shortly thereafter, Lasseter publicly announced that Pixar would not be making any sequels in the coming decade. Time will tell what the general public will think of ''WesternAnimation/Cars3'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Coco}}'', though hopes for both ''Toy Story 4'' and ''The Incredibles 2'' remain very high.
