** Mandy also seems like a feminist. As such, other real world feminists look up to her. Mandy really shouldn't be holding the feminist flag, though, because she's [[SociopathicHero sociopathic]], [[MisanthropicHero misanthropic]], and [[{{Narcissist}} borderline narcissistic]]. It doesn't matter if she holds good feminist values or not because it's offset by her horrible actions and character.
** Some villains on the show getting the DracoInLeatherPants treatment is kind of to be expected, because they are a bit sympathetic. Then there's [[LightIsNotGood Bun]]-[[CuteIsEvil Bun]], who has no redeeming qualities and did plenty of pointlessly terrible things to the protagonists of ''Underfist'' ForTheEvuls. Yet somehow, for whatever reason, a small handful of fans like Bun-Bun and find him adorable.

* MisaimedFandom: Pretty much anyone who thinks Mandy is cute, since her [[TokenEvilTeammate evilness]] is supposed to make her the opposite.

Added DiffLines:

** 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 EnfantTerible TokenEvilTeammate, though, and her actions towards others seem like a major case of DisproportionateRetribution, so it's almost impossible to feel something for her.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** ''WeaternAnimation/MonsterHigh'' came out with a line of dolls called "Freaky Fusions", complete with an animated movie based on them. Obviously, the premise is based on [[HybridMonster Hybrid Monsters]]. It becomes funny when you realize that Maxwell Atoms already did this with the aforementioned Irwin. (Good thing they didn't do a mummy/vampire, otherwise he'd probably sue...)



** Billy can be really cute so long as there' no [[GrossUpCloseUp Gross Up Close-Ups]].

* CrossoverShipping: There's Mandy and Dib from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. It's actually pretty popular.
** One that arose not too long ago was teenage!Irwin and Marceline from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. It hasn't officially caught on, per se, put the creator has gotten some positive feedback for her [[PortmanteauCoupleName Marcewin]] art.
** 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...

Added DiffLines:

** Dracula may be based on Redd Foxx and the title character of ''Blacula'', but his appearance is actually pretty accurate when compared to the novel Dracula's originally from. The fact that he's not harmed by sunlight (save for his first appearance on the show) is also novel-accurate. This may or may not be AccidentallyAccurate, though.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Moe}}: The show is surprisingly adorable for something so dark.
** Billy can be really cute so long as there' no [[GrossUpCloseUp Gross Up Close-Ups]].
** Nergal Jr. is considered this by most of his [[{{Fangirl}} Fangirls]]. It's probably the quiet voice and [[{{Adorkable}} dorkiness]].
** Irwin, when one thinks about it. He's also {{Adorkable}}, usually one of the nicer characters, is also a NonActionGuy most of the time, and is later revealed to be a CuteMonsterBoy. Vanessa Marshall's performance pretty much seals the deal.
** Mandy subverts and defies this, being absolutely ''nuts'' to the point where it hinders her from being cute. [[DoubleSubverted Unless, of course, you're into that kind of thing.]]


Added DiffLines:

** A few shots of Irwin crying in "Irwin Gets a Clue". And the end, sort of.
** The end of "The Greatest Love Story Ever Told Ever". Turns out Mandy was just messing with Irwin and Junior's emotions.


Added DiffLines:

** 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.


Added DiffLines:

** Irwin's life is kinda sad, actually. He has a crush on the most evil girl in the world (who hates him), wants to be cool (but fails miserably), and some of the horrible things that happen to him happen for ''seemingly no reason''. Add in the fact that he's usually not as much of a jerk as the other characters, is {{Adorkable}} in his own right, and that his crush on Mandy is [[FridgeBrilliance probably Billy's fault (remember "Get Outta My Head!"?)]], and you've got a pretty solid candidate.

** Nergal Jr. is a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds. He just wants [[IJustWantToHaveFriends friends]] and [[IJustWantToBeLoved love]], but it almost never works out and he's the constant victim of bullying and bad luck. And seeing as he's an EldritchAbomination, things can get ugly when he's hit his RageBreakingPoint.

** [[SadistTeacher Ms. Butterbean]] crosses it in ''Substitute Creature'' when she ignored Sperg bullying Junior because he bribed her with an apple. To really [[KickTheDog twist the knife]], she tells Junior that it's okay for Sperg to do it because he was bigger. You don't feel bad when Junior glues her to the ceiling and takes her form.

** Mindy has had her fair share of candidates from attempting to incinerate Mandy for taking her place as cheerleader of the team to beating up Billy with knuckles for being a loser. And let's not even mention Underfist...
** Sperg outdid even his usual abusive self by resorting to cannibalism and eating Pud'n.

* CanonSue: Mandy. "Scary Poppins" is just ''one'' of the blatant examples throughout the show's later seasons.



* JerkSue: Mandy, DependingOnTheWriter.



** Mandy for some. Due to her JerkSue status being too exaggerated by many. It's to the point where she can give [[Series/DrakeAndJosh Megan]] a run for her money.
