* JerkSue: Mandy to some people, at least later in the series. She's constantly bossing people around and treating them like crap (among other things), and somehow she ''always'' gets away with it. What's worse is that even when other characters confront her about this, she ''still'' wins.



** A few parts of ''Underfist'' may be this, like the team splitting up, Fred's breakdown immediately after, or the subplot of Irwin trying to accept his monster heritage even though Hoss no longer trusts him.



** Mandy, most of the time. She has a few moments/episodes here and there where she's put in a position where she ''should'' be TheWoobie. She's the EnfantTerrible TokenEvilTeammate, though, and her actions towards others seem like a major case of DisproportionateRetribution, so it's almost impossible to feel something for her.

In fact, some of her "Woobie" moments seem more like punishment for her actions.

Added DiffLines:

** The ending of "Grim in Love". After Malaria finds out that Grim is the actual GrimReaper, she... doesn't take it well. After she runs out screaming, all Grim does is utter a completely heartbroken "Call me." ''Ouch.'' Poor guy...

** Grim has his moments too, especially in the earlier seasons, in which almost every single episode ends with you wanting to give the poor guy a hug.

** Grim himself seems to be becoming this, too. Not only has he been shipped with Mandy, but also Eris, Malaria, Velma Green, Boogey, Nergal, Jack O' Lantern, [[CrackPairing General Skarr]], and most recently, ''[[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Pearl]]''.

** Irwin's also been paired with [[WesternAnimation/PowerpuffGirls Buttercup]] and [[WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents Tootie]]. By a few people. And this isn't the best place to be discussing our opinions on the "art" itself...

** In "My Fair Mandy", Mandy (sort of) sings "[[Film/TheWizardOfOz Somewhere Over the Rainbow]]" for the talent portion of the contest, complete with set and costume. Creator/GreyDelisle, who voiced Mandy, would later star as Dorothy and sing the same song (for real, not like the annoyed Mandy was performing) in ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry and the Wizard of Oz''.

* HypocriticalFandom: Irwin is a somewhat polarizing character, but those who do hate him hate the fact that he has a crush on Mandy. Yet most of these same fans love Mandy, completely ignoring (or ''embracing'') the fact that she's the TokenEvilTeammate and that she's done ''tons'' of horrible things. Irwin, on the other hand, is ''not'' evil (or not as evil, depending on how you look at it), and yet he's apparently an unforgivable creep while Mandy is perfect. [[SarcasmMode Because that]] ''[[SarcasmMode totally]]'' [[SarcasmMode makes sense.]]



** More like "Misaimed Hatedom", but it goes hand in hand with Mandy's Misaimed Fandom: there are few people who hate [[DoggedNiceGuy Irwin]] because of his crush on Mandy, and see him as creepy or even borderline ''villainous'' because of it. A lot of these people are also fans of Mandy and take issue more with the facts Irwin has a crush on Mandy specifically. In short, they like Mandy and think she's amazing, and they hate Irwin and think he's weird. They must either have SkewedPriorities or they FailedASpotCheck, because the list of horrible things Mandy's done would be ''[[LongList way longer]]'' than Irwin's, because ([[RuleOfThree again]]) Mandy is '''''evil'''''.



* RonTheDeathEater: Irwin occasionally falls victim to this. Some people view him as nothing but a creepy StalkerWithACrush with no sympathetic qualities. These same people tend to either give Mandy the DracoInLeatherPants treatment or like Mandy because EvilIsCool, so there seems to be a bit of [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocrisy]] going on...



** Or Junior and Irwin. It's not as popular as some of the other pairings, but it's had a few hints dropped in the show.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: [[ChristmasEpisode "Billy and Mandy Save Christmas".]] Features such things as a mall being burned to the ground as the MallSanta is mercilessly beaten (with The Grim Reaper implying that this happens all the time and Billy blaming it on the sad state of the economy), [[BadSanta evil vampire Santa]], Santa's evil vampire wife, and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny the local bully being eaten by a pack of flying vampire elves.]] Quite subversive compared to the average Christmas episodes, and even fellow childrens' cartoons that try to subvert the usual sweetness of a Christmas special don't take it that far.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: How unintentional is up for debate, but Irwin, Pud'n, and Sperg in "Tricycle of Terror" fall into this trope. While it could be argued that Billy was indeed too old to be riding a tricycle, this doesn't excuse the fact that all three of them sadistically mock him for it, with Sperg taking it a step further by giving Billy a brutal wedgie and then throwing "Trikey" off a cliff while Billy can only watch and beg helplessly, with all three of them gloating about [[EvilFeelsGood how good it felt]] after doing so (Pud'n even calls it "awesome", the little shit). When the haunted tricycle violently retaliates, they all have the nerve to expect sympathy from both Billy and the audience, with Pud'n obnoxiously calling Trikey a "mean old tricycle", conveniently ignoring the fact that they are all [[AssholeVictim Asshole Victims]] who went out of their way to deserve their fate. It also doesn't help that Trikey, unlike {{Literature/Christine}}, doesn't attack people for simply being close to Billy and only attacked Grim out of self-defense.
