** Timmy's Dad is always seen as Scrappy for many fans. In the earlier seasons he was this along with his wife, especially when their Parental Neglect becomes downright abusive, such as leaving him with Vicky or ignoring his feelings or well-being, and then season 7 came, Timmy's Dad had became divisive character, either he [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap got better than before]] or got worse due to his many (and mostly unnecessary) appearances. do You think he'll stay like that? NO! he became so intolarent (along wit Crocker) to many when he became really SpotlightStealingSquad in season 9 , but [[FromBadToWorse that's not everything]], in the next season, the writers [[{{Flanderization}} rewritten]] him into an idiotic, Creepy [[{{ManChild}} Man-Child]] and LethallyStupid who causes destruction wherever he goes.

** Many viewers thought Crocker went too far in ''WesternAnimation/AbraCatastrophe'', when he kidnaps and tortures Wanda to use as a source of power.
** While Vicky's meant to be cruel and sadistic, her acts are meant to be PlayedForLaughs, albeit [[BlackComedy dark laughs]]. But she crossed the line in the TV film, "Channel Chasers", when she frames Timmy for destroying his family's portrait, burning down his family's grand piano, and writing spray paint on the living room wall just to see Timmy suffering a horrible punishment from his parents.
** The Pixies won't be forgiven by many viewers any time soon in "School's Out: The Musical" when they kidnap a child and raise him for his entire life as their own personal {{Tykebomb}} to try and take over Fairy World and the Earth.
** The Anti-Fairies went too far (and if "School's Out" wasn't theirs, this certainly is for the Pixies) by using Poof as a weapon to destroy Fairy World for revenge, then choosing to destroy the Earth ForTheEvulz.
** The whole gambit Norm pulled in "Fairy Idol". He was already a JerkassGenie, but the way he ruins Timmy's and Chester's lives is just terrible.
** Remy Buxaplenty was originally a VillainyFreeVillain who was merely jealous of Timmy's Fairies and happiness, and while he might do an underhanded tactic here and there, like when he tricked Timmy by faking friendship so his life would be too perfect and his fairies would leave him, he never resorted to violence. He becomes a full-on CardCarryingVillain as of "Operation F.U.N." where he, Juandisimo and Chief Shallow Grave put Timmy and his friends through TrainingFromHell, running them absolutely ragged and cutting Timmy off from his fairies by having them confiscated in goldfish form. The MEH crossing really comes in when he traps them under a butterfly net, which renders them powerless with a missile ready to obliterate them. He was willing to KILL Cosmo and Wanda!
** Maryanne crosses it when she personally causes World War I and indirectly, every war after it. It's especially chilling because she not only did it as a child, but didn't even seem to care!
** For many fans, Jorgen Von Strangle crossed the line in ''It's A Wishful Life'' for not only mocking Timmy after he wished he never existed, but outright [[DrivenToSuicide encouraging him to go the whole way with it.]] Even if it was just a SecretTestOfCharacter, he took way too much pleasure in tormenting a 10-year-old boy for comfort

** The switch from hand drawn animation to flash animation in mid-Season 10, which many believe to be yet another sign that the show has run its course. Not helped by the fact that unlike other shows that switched from hand-drawn to flash, the switch was done in the middle of a season that consisted of hand drawn episodes.

Sure enough, when Butch announced he was leaving Nickelodeon, it was revealed the show was over and done with (for real this time, he produces the show).



** Ms. Sunshine, AKA Ms. Doombringer. Ironic, since the end of her only appearance has her vowing to someday return. Crocker's line after she says this kinda sums it up:

** Ms. Sunshine, AKA Ms. Doombringer. A much more competent fairy hunter, cool design and voice, not too serious and could've been expanded on afterward, maybe even causing Crocker to actually start upping his game to keep his turf. But sadly, the writers who wrote the episode just up and forgot her and she was never seen again. Ironic, since the end of her only appearance has her vowing to someday return. Crocker's line after she says this kinda sums it up:


Added DiffLines:

** Some see Gary, Timmy's imaginary friend, as utterly wasted potential for a villain. This is a guy who came from Timmy's psyche and likewise knew how he would think which could've provided some challenge for him. Heck "Escape From Unwish Island" was a good example of this, but said episode likewise just gave him an uninteresting send-off where he pretty much gets what he wants.


Added DiffLines:

*** Another aspect some fans have expressed is that since this apparently carried on after Poof went on to do his own thing. That this could've been a good chance to age up Timmy a bit to at least a pre-teen (12) and make him a mentor to Chloe. He would've been slightly older and wiser, plus had much more experience, and a good transition into finally letting go of the fairies once it was time to do so.

** Timmy's Dad, depending on who you ask. he's either funny and got better because [[TookALevelinKindness his relationship with his son]] (sort of) got better quite a bit in later seasons, or downright annoying, neglectful so much to his son who doesn't deserve being CreatorsPet. after all many fans tend to the [[TheScrappy latter]].

** Timmy himself in season 10. Since Chloe came to the show, he [[{{Flanderization}} went from]] an adventurous, enthusiastic, and sometimes JerkWithAHeartOfGold[[note]]since season 4 [[/note]] but generally [[NiceGuy nice]], to a lazy, whiny, apathetic, and (once again) selfish [[{{Jerkass}} asshole]]. It doesn't help that most of episodes treat him either as nothing but a ButtMonkey, useless wimp, or [[TookALevelInDumbass complete idiot]] (the episode "Return of the L.O.S.E.R.S." is the worst example of this), even seasons 4 and 5's {{Flanderization}} didn't make him like that.

** [[AlphaBitch Trixie Tang]], especially her Post-Flanderization self.

However, both sides agree that Trixie, as well as many other characters, were [[{{TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter}} wasted]].
