* NightmareFuel: Some of the scary places, especially those with [[NightmareFace Nightmare Faces]] [[JumpScare that pop out at you,]] ''Sometimes taking up the whole screen.''
** In the 2012 egg hunt place, you had better get that server-destroying egg before the place turns into a white icy desolate world and creepy demonic voices come out of nowhere!
** Read the ROBLOX creepypasta wiki. Some are made by immature 3rd graders, others are good and horrifying.



** The profanity filter that replaced it is also strongly disliked, though to a lesser degree. It's rather ''peculiar'' about what it censors; for instance, words like "[[DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch twat]]" go straight through, yet often perfectly innocent words or even ''people's names'' get rendered into [[SymbolSwearing strings of pound signs]] or [Content Deleted]. In an amusing bit of meta-censorship, the word "censored" occasionally gets censored.
** Now as of February of 2017, Roblox has changed the filter so much after being involved in the news where some irresponsible parent allowed her 6 year old kid to go on Roblox and play a game that is full of ODer's. The mother was so dumb not for just not watching what her kid does online, and so misjudging that she believed that the people who were flirting with daughter were pedophiles and child predators, when in reality it was some couple of hormone confused preteens.
** As a result of that, the Roblox staff had to quickly in panic change the filter even more, that games including ones on the front page like Apocalypse Rising, Pokemon Brick Bronze, etc. were shut down and put under review. Reason BECAUSE most of the front page games had custom chat guis and scripts, which meant they didn't use the universal Roblox chat. In other words many games were shutdown and place under review for days, just because the games didn't filter anything, or didn't filter enough swears or offensive terms. Some developers and communities were pissed and this led to many developers and people quitting over it. And dozens of roleplay games were suffering, because of this sadly.
** And worse OF ALL, the filter is literally now like as if it is a communication system for the disabled (not trying to offend anyone), by this that means regular common day words are now #####, even such as the word, "my", "I", "you", "a", "as", "or", and so on. Pretty much Roblox has gotten to the point they are just overprotective.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some players, notably older users, hate change. EVEN IF IT'S GOOD CHANGE.

*** The 3.0 Bodies have been rejected by '''''millions'''''. ''Roblox'' [[PolishTheTurd deleted negative comments to control the flow of feedback]], which would make their bodies look good. Think about it: 1 thousand who like it against ''millions'' who hate it! And there's even some things that will cause this update to be the renegade:
*** Lawsuits: Takes BuiltWithLego to the extreme. Also resembles {{KRE-O}} much.
*** OD Magnet: The bodies resemble online daters.
*** One of those Sarge faces has a name that offends the British.
** There also exist "Petitions" for this problem, but they mostly exist on comments, meaning they can just manipulate the petition so that more names show up.

%%While Roblox MOST CERTAINLY has an UnpleasableFanbase, please do not add UnpleasableFanbase, as it restricts examples.
** At the beginning of 2017, Roblox changed its logo to what it looks like now with red text spelling it out, with a tilted square O. This let to many people absolutely hating the new logo, since they all think it is uncreative and too damn simple. It also made the famous R letter icon that symbolized Roblox, being replaced with the titled square O. Even the studs in games were replaced too (but then again not many games have studs due to people wanting to make realistic buildings).
** It even led to plenty of funny jokes about the new logo, with people saying it looks like a Cheez-it, or a ripoff of the Domino's Pizza's logo.

* WeAREStrugglingTogether: So many people, especially the people who been on the game for years are beginning to hate Roblox for it's updates (whether good or bad updates), which led to the point that you can say that older players are struggling together as they suffer from every bad and pointless update.

* DifficultySpike: The Festive Gift of Impossibilty from the 2013 Giftsplosion: Even the second-hardest badge out of those you need to collect is just challenging at worst, but the Bandit badge makes the gift live up to its name, being far harder than any of the other gifts.

* GoodBadBugs: Enemy humanoids and entities may spawn with only their heads and torso, and if they're carrying a weapon, it'll appear near them instead of them carrying it. This is especially useful in RPG-style games since you can't get hurt if this happens, unless the torso and/or head is scripted to deal damage on contact.

** The 2016 update that removed Tickets as a currency was almost universally hated. Not only did it [[ArtisticLicenseEconomics almost collapse the game's economy overnight]], it also removed the only source of income that non-developing players (read: 90% of the playerbase) had.
