** Scrappy Doo. He surprisingly enough ''has'' a big fanbase that at times considers him the EnsembleDarkHorse of the franchise but yet the other majority despises him for "stealing the series" despite ''helping it''.

* AffectionateParody: All examples below are YMMV's on if they are "affectionate" or not getting the material in the first place.

** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqLS4Sg0GDA Night of the Living Doo]]'', a parody of ''The New Scooby-Doo Movies'' which aired on Halloween in 2001.



** It is important to note while this explanation does wonders just taking ''Mystery Incorporated'' to task, the writers' TheyJustDidntCare attitude to some HB research pokes many holes in this, a ContinuityReboot that works would blow out the only possible idea of an HB canon.



** To the larger the franchise in general. Some love the humor and mystery, others hate the formulaic nature, and often poor animation quality. Essentially the same reasons their studio in general is Love It or Hate It.

* MisBlamed: Many people blame [[TheScrappy Scrappy-Doo]] for ruining ''Scooby-Doo'' (specifically, dumping half the original cast, switching to a TwoShorts format, and the franchise's first clumsy attempts to lose the ScoobyDooHoax) due to the timing of his introduction. Ironically, Scrappy is what probably saved the show from cancellation way back in 1979. And the success of that new incarnation of Scooby Doo is likely what has kept the franchise going on for some 40 years. It doesn't help that nearly '''everyone''' hates the poor character as if he had [[StarWars destroyed an entire planet]] despite the fact he was only created by mandate. To put how much people don't like him is...[[FanDumb an understatement]].

* TheWoobie: Some will feel that Scrappy is this. The poor character hasn't appeared much, is blamed by a lot of internet people of the fanbase. Even though he hasn't been seen since, many, many fans feel he might as well be '''THE''' Woobie of the franchise.
** If it weren't for Scrappy, Scooby-Doo wouldn't be around anymore. Sadly, this hasn't been resolved.

* CrossoverShip: An interesting canon variant; in a crossover with ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'', Johnny tries to flirt with Daphne, but the twist is that ''Velma'' has a crush on ''him'' ([[ObliviousToLove which he doesn't seem to notice]]). In promotional material for Cartoon Network thereafter, Velma/Johnny was [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]] depicted as an OfficialCouple.

** The ''Webcomic/{{Dasien}}'' story [[http://dasien.com/archives/Holiday/Issue2/Page1.html "Girl of Goo, Where Are You?"]] also qualifies. Along with all the Scooby-Doo tropes, the story's villain resembles the one from "Nowhere to Hyde", and framed portraits of Creator/DonKnotts and [[WesternAnimation/TheHarlemGlobetrotters Meadowlark Lemon]] appear in the background of one panel.



** Fans adore The Hex Girls. All their songs tend to be liked but "Hex Girl'' is their SignatureSong.

** Even further some people consider the real end being when the Hanna-Barbera name died, so ending at ''Cyber Chase''.

** Vincent Van Ghoul from ''The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo''. Being voiced by Vincent Price may have something to do with it, and it's most likely the reason why Van Ghoul returns in ''Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated''.

** Speaking of monsters, [[spoiler: Simone Lenoir and Lena Dupree from ''Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island'', despite being one-shot villains are quite popular themselves for notably being one of the first villains in the franchise to give off the DarkerAndEdgier vibe way before the villains in ''Mystery Incorporated'' or the succeeding ''Witch's Ghost'' that came one year after ''Zombie Island'', to be outright scary in monster form and when they meet their {{Family Unfriendly Death}}s that would give child fans of the franchise nightmares, [[EvilIsSexy appealing in human form]] to [[HoneyTrap lure victims to a trap]], having [[AxCrazy committed murder before unlike past goons]] and to be taken [[KnightOfCerebus dead seriously]] [[VileVillainSaccharineShow in a usually light-hearted Saturday morning cartoon franchise]] unlike prior villains. [[DracoInLeatherPants Not to mentioned their somewhat]] [[AntiVillain tragic reasons]] [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds behind their motives]] unlike the one-sidedly greedy reasons of the previous men in masks. Lena especially, for being the least evil as she actually [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes cared for her conspirators]] if they were in danger unlike [[BadBoss Simone]] and initially appearing to be the [[{{Moe}} cutest girl]] who expressed romantic interest towards Fred in the film before TheReveal (even after the revelation she says "[[AffablyEvil Sorry, Freddie. I really do like you]]."), while some fans see her grisly, rapidly aging death as an AlasPoorVillain moment for her (and sometimes for Simone).]]

*** It should be recalled, though, that Simba is one of the two most generic lion names long before ''The Lion King'' was ever made. You think there's a lot of human's named "Joe?". Try going to a lion exhibit at any zoo and call "Leo" and "Simba".
** Casey Kasem's dispute over wanting Shaggy to be a vegetarian after he had to voice him in a commercial for Burger King is amusing now that Burger King now promotes a meatless vegetarian burger, and is one of the very few major fast food chains to do so.
** A Mummy, on the Orient Express. Sorry [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E8MummyOnTheOrientExpress Doctor]], Scooby did it first in the 80s.

** Played depressingly straight in a few episodes of ''Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated'', though. Though that series redesigned Velma to give her a more slim and petite look, there were a few episodes where it was constantly pointed out how fat and unattractive she was.

* HoYay: The last scene of the ''What's New'' episode "Pompeii and Circumstance". Supping on a plate of spaghetti, Shaggy and Scooby are sucking in the same noodle, and...well, you know what happens next. Might be considered InterspeciesRomance if Shaggy and Scooby weren't [[{{Kissgusting}} repulsed by the result]].

* PopularityPolynomial: This applies to Scrappy Doo, believe it or not. He wasn't terribly hated at the time of his debut, but as time went on, he went down in history as the TropeCodifier for the [[TheScrappy trope he named]]. Nowadays, though, more of his fans have come out of the woodwork (and even some of his haters have warmed up to him slightly) and believe that Scrappy could be [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap rescued from his own heap]] if someone actually tried to improve him as a character. People are more willing defend the little guy, as well, such as pointing out how he actually saved Scooby Doo from petering out. Of course, that isn't to say people still hate him now, but the reception to the critter is warmer that it has been in years.
