* {{Misblamed}}: Cartoon Network got a ''slew'' of hate ('''especially''' from theorist Youtubers) when ''Regular Show'' was announced to be ending by it's eight season, coming off as them cancelling the show due to their focus on ''[[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016 the PPG 2016 Reboot]]'' and ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' (which in itself is... [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement a controversial topic]]). This is ''not'' the case, as J.G. Quintel always intended for the series to have a finite story that he would end on his own terms, similar to what [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Alex Hirsch]] did.

* SpiritualAdaptation: Can be considered as a cartoon made by either Creator/JuddApatow, Creator/SethRogen or Evan Goldberg as the concept of the episodes are similar their works such as ''Film/PineappleExpress'', ''Film/ThisIsTheEnd'', ''Film/{{Neighbors 2014}}'' and ''Film/TheInterview'', except this body of work [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids is made for kids]] unlike the R-rated nature of the films. Plus, the show's stars Mordecai and Rigby looked like characters that can be played by Rogen and Creator/JamesFranco, who both have played the everyman buddy and amiable doofus much like Mordecai and Rigby in ''Pineapple Express'' and ''The Interview''. Also, the character of Muscle Man can be considered an {{expy}} of comic actor Creator/DannyMcBride (who appeared in ''Pineapple Express'' and ''This Is the End''). It's even further helped that some of the actors who voice-acted on the show had actually worked with the aforementioned filmmakers ranging from Creator/LindaCardellini, the voice of C.J., who appeared opposite Rogen in Apatow's ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' to Ed Begley, Jr., the voice of Mordecai's dad, who had acted in ''Pineapple Express'' to even Creator/DavidKoechner, the voice of Principal Dean, who acted opposite Rogen in ''Film/The40YearOldVirgin'', ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy'', ''Film/DrillbitTaylor'', an episode of ''Freaks and Geeks'' and ''Film/{{Paul}}'' and worked for Apatow on the former four projects, ''Film/TalladegaNightsTheBalladOfRickyBobby'' and ''Film/Anchorman2TheLegendContinues''.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Near the end of season 7 a sub plot formed of Mordecai wanting to either become a pilot or open an airport but by season 8 (the final season) nothing comes of that.

* HypocriticalFandom: One of the reasons, some Mordecai/Margaret fans hate Mordecai/CJ, is because [[InterspeciesRomance "Mordecai(bird) and CJ(cloud) are not the same species!"]] Never mind the fact that those same Mor/Mar fans ship Rigby(raccoon) and Eileen(mole), and that those same Mor/Mar fans ship [[PairTheSpares Thomas(goat) and CJ/(cloud),]] to square CJ away. Margaret would be offended about this, since her parents happened to be a bird and human!

* CrackPairing: Some fans seem to like Intern Thomas and C.J. as a couple. Considering in "Dumped by the altar", [[spoiler: Mordecai and C.J. broke up and Thomas was spotted in the background at the wedding, there doesn't seem to be anything to get in the way of the pairing, right now.]]

* TheWoobie: Pops. Easily the most sensitive and vulnerable character in the show, and the one who is the most easily provoked to tears. He's also kind of a ButtMonkey, and a lot of episodes that feature him as a main character ("Prankless," "Marvolo the Wizard," "Dizzy," etc,) show something bad happening to him. This is amped up to 11 after the finale, in which he [[spoiler: dies to save all of his friends]]. Someone give that man a hug.
** [[spoiler: Pops died hugging Anti-Pops. There is no need to give him a hug.]]

** Some fans would even extend this to season 8, particularly in the first half. Many felt bringing the cast into space added little to the show, instead simply turning it into a cleaner ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' or ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty.'' That said, the show's GrandFinale was met with widespread acclaim as a suitably epic and emotional send-off.
