* {{Misblamed}}: In the finale Babu's story of how Jerry ruined his life is treated InUniverse as a MoralEventHorizon by the jury and seals the group's fate. The irony being that it's one of the few things that ''wasn't'' Jerry's fault. Babu failed at running a restaurant because he was a poor businessman and he got deported because the mailman was incompetent. Plus Babu apparently never even tried to get replacement visa renewal papers.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: TropeNamer. It's hard to believe that this was considered ''pushing the boundaries of network censorship and sitcom conventions'' back in the day, not to mention how most sitcoms today copy the show's premise of {{JerkAss}} city-dwellers getting into trouble (cf. ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'') or neurotic comedian does stand-up and has awkward encounters with others (''Series//{{Louie}}'').

** Especially in regards to how his relationship with Susan's parents soured. As a matter of fact, in one part of the series finale, Mr. Ross was shown buying a handgun. Yes, you saw that right. Susan's parents dislike George to the point of wishing death on him. [[MamaBear To be fair, though, you can't]] [[PapaWolf blame them for missing their daughter]].

** In "The Secretary", George is painted in a positive light for discriminating against attractive applicants. At one point he explains to one that while she is qualified, he would not hire her based solely on her looks. He was afraid of a "SexySecretary" situation that he knew would be his own fault and didn't want to objectify her. So he deliberately hired a stereotypically nerdy-looking secretary. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Then he ended up having]] [[YouCantFightFate sex with her anyway.]]

** At the end of "The Millenium," Mrs. Hamilton is seriously ill and can't call for help because [[LoveMakesYouCrazy she hid Jerry's number under her poison control button]]. Her actress Louan Gideon died of breast cancer.

* NightmareFuel: It's PlayedForLaughs, but Peterman's Colonel-Kurtz-inspired madness in "The Chicken Roaster" still comes off as a bit unsettling. Especially if you watch it before you've seen ''Film/ApocalypseNow'' [[TheWeirdAlEffect and don't realize it's a reference to anything.]]

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Does Kramer have AspergersSyndrome? Even though he is unemployed and generally bumbles his way through life, he does display signs of intelligence throughout the series, particularly of the GeniusDitz / IdiotSavant variety(many of his business ideas and inventions are pretty clever). Moreover, he [[NoSocialSkills doesn't seem to understand the norms of social behavior]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} or even general human behavior]]; he [[BrutalHonesty has no sense of tact]] (as evidenced by telling a woman she looks pregnant, and another that she should get a nose job), [[TheKlutz he's physically clumsy]], he has [[CharacterTic odd tics and other repetitive behaviors]], and [[SarcasmBlind he often doesn't pick up on Jerry's sarcasm.]] It's a wonder he has friends at all, let alone several girlfriends - but then again, he is the KavorkaMan.

** The series finale oh so much; love the continunity or confused by it. Or just plain don't like seeing the show end on such a downer that vilified the cast.

* MagnumOpus: After the show ended, critics began discussing the "Seinfeld curse," as it seemed none of the people involved could ever find the same kind of success again. Only [[Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm Larry David]] and [[Series/{{Veep}} Julia Louis-Dreyfus]] have managed to break it.
