* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The show ends up doing this to itself quite a bit. The popularity the show has gained combined with the publicity its given to the drag community means drag is evolving a ''lot'' faster than it used to. Every season, the new batch of queens come in more polished and prepared than the last, and as a result the fashion and runways exhibited by queens even a few seasons ago looks dated by comparison. For example, Tyra's "crowning look" for Season 2 was essentially a bathing suit with a cape tied around her waist, something a queen would get read to filth for if she tried to pull off today.
** During a particularly memorable moment from Season 1, Shannel's wig fell off in the middle of her lip sync against Akashia. After she turned it around and kept the performance going it resulted in the judges cheering her on, saving her in that lip sync, and became one of the enduring scenes from the otherwise-forgotten Season 1. Unfortunately, this led to many, ''many'' queens in subsequent seasons taking their wigs off to try and achieve the same effect, and it was clear after a certain point the judges were not having it anymore. By the time Season 4 rolled around, taking your wig off during a lip sync was essentially the kiss of death, and almost any queen who has done this since has gone home.

--->"You're perfect. You're beautiful. You look like Linda Evangelista. You're a model. Did you stone those tights? Oh, you're smiling! [[{{Angrish}} fhfskd]]. The judges eat her up every time. She could walk out there in a damn diaper and they would say 'Valentina! Your smile is beautiful!'"

** Music/MeghanTrainor was a poorly received guest judge for a variety of reasons (cf. UnfortunateImplications on her own YMMV page). The point fans rail on is the fact that she showed up in a unicorn onesie. While no one expects the judges to turn out looks on par with the contestants or Ru, turning up to a fashion TV show in a cartoon plush jumpsuit that could be found Target was seen as a faux pas, to say the least.

** All Stars 3, some fans are applauding the fact that for the first time an All Stars season doesn't have an obvious winner before it even starts airing (many decried All Stars 1 for it being obvious Chad Michaels was going to win, and while All Stars 2 was better received, fans still accused the show of shilling Alaska too much even though the fans seemed to be backing Katya).

** Courtney Act's rat testicle [[note]]She said "right," but her thick accent caused [=DeLa=] to hilariously ask why Courtney had a rat testicle[[/note]]

** Valentina's mask over her mouth and her epic showdown with Ru has been immortalized in internet memes and parody drag performances.

** With Season 7 and 8's Snatch Game, the argument of whether the acceptance of "boy drag" in the challenge after Kennedy Davenport's Little Richard and Thorgy Thor's Michael Jackson is a good thing or not. Some argue that 'drag' was never supposed to be about being a convincing woman, and 'genderfuck' and 'boy drag' have as much substance in the community as 'fishy' drag; not to mention these fans cite the only clear rule Ru has ever made on Snatch Game is the contestants just need to make her laugh (it doesn't matter ''who'' you play, but ''how'' you play them). Other fans, of course, argue the show is called ''Drag'' Race so it should be featuring Drag Queens, and that since Season 4's Milan and Season 5's Alaska got read by the judges for doing boy drag, so why is it suddenly alright in Snatch Game?

There's also the fact that the men impersonated--Little Richie and Michael Jackson--are both known for their over-the-top aesthetics, so imitating them wasn't much different than, say, doing another drag queen.

** In Season 8 Bob is making fun of Acid Betty's [[CantTakeCriticism inability to take criticism]] by making a joke that one day Betty will come into a club with a shotgun just because somebody badmouthed her ... considerably less funny after the incident at ''Pulse'' nightclub (which happened right after this season).
