** The Abomination's physical appearance. Some people liked it and thought it was scary looking, while others disliked it for straying so far from his comic look. And some people just thought it was just plain ugly regardless of any concerns about fidelity to the comics.

** The Abomination's physical appearance. Some people liked it and thought it was scary looking, while others disliked it for straying so far from his comic look. And some people just thought it was just plain ugly Some, regardless of any concerns about fidelity loyalty to the comics.comic incarnation found it just plain ugly. Then again, The ''Abomination'' being ugly is pretty much the point.

** Mrs. Maier from the pilot episode was burned in the face trying to rescue her son, but the burn mark is very clearly makeup. Of course, this could have been intentional for censorship purposes.

** Mix between hilarious and harsher- one of the going ideas behind the name change was that "Bruce" sounded too gay/effeminate, which ended up backfiring when Bruce Jenner became a top Olympic athlete. Cue now when Bruce Jenner has undergone gender reassignment surgery.

* CompleteMonster: Michael Sutton from season 3's "The Snare" has become bored with hunting animals, and so he decides to start HuntingTheMostDangerousGame. On his own island, he finds whatever men he can and invites them over, only to drug them to sleep and put them through deadly obstacles as he hunts them down, succeeding at least 5 times, and seeing it all as a "game." He intends to do the same to [[The Protagonist David Banner]]. It's implied that the reason he's so successful is because he doesn't play fair, a fact David calls him out on, insisting that a real hunter plays fair and that all Sutton about is winning. When Sutton discovers David's inner beast, he intends to whip David with the intent of bringing it out and killing it, only to kill himself by accident. At the end of the episode, it turns out even in death Sutton can't stand losing, as it's revealed he booby trapped David's escape boat in preparation for the hero's victory. Ruthless, psychotic, and a cheater at his own game, Michael Sutton was unlike any other villain on the show, who were motivated by either tragedy or simple financial gain.

* HilariousInHindsight: WordOfGod explained that he wanted to change Hulk to red, but Stan Lee denied the permission. Years later in the comics, The Red Hulk became an actual character separate from the green Hulk.

* NightmareFuel: The series has been described as most frightening TV series ever for young children, with its focus on radical change into a creature making animal-like sounds.
** Word is that Bill Bixby wouldn't even allow his children to watch the show for various reasons as he was afraid it would terrify them. An episode of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood would later go behind the scenes of the show to reveal the actors and makeup process, in hopes of making children less afraid of the transformation.

* BrokenBase: The arguments about which is better: This or ''{{Film/Hulk}}''. Seriously, there are [[IncrediblyLamePun civil]] [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar wars]] that have been less heated.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Not intentionally, but a lot of people seem to forget that this movie is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel themselves haven't done much to raise awareness of the film, as it's had no sequels and none of its characters reappeared in the MCU until ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar Civil War]]'', save for Banner who was recast.

** In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', it's revealed that the super soldier serum strenghtens the user's main personality trait. In that movie, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's heroism was increased and Red Skull's evilness was increased. In this movie, Blonsky's willingness to fight slowly turns into full on BloodKnight tendencies, combined with DrunkOnTheDarkSide.

** In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', it's revealed that the super soldier serum strenghtens the user's main personality trait. In that movie, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's Steve Rogers is a selfless {{Determinator}} accustomed to taking a beating and keeping his cool, so as ComicBook/CaptainAmerica his heroism was increased increased; while Johann Schmidt was an evil and ambitious MadScientist, so as Red Skull's Skull his evilness was increased. In this movie, Blonsky's Blonsky lives to fight, so after taking the serum his willingness to fight slowly turns into full on BloodKnight tendencies, combined with DrunkOnTheDarkSide.DrunkOnTheDarkSide. As a plus, Schmidt and Blonsky both received an ''incomplete'' serum. Steve is the only one to get the formula as it was meant to be given (refined, in a lab, with someone who can handle it) which is why he is the only one that doesn't suffer [[BodyHorror horrific side effects]].



** The incomplete serum has GoneHorriblyRight by emphasizing existing character traits. Bruce Banner has anger management issues. Blonsky lives to fight. Johann Schmidt was an evil and ambitious MadScientist. Steve Rogers is a selfless {{Determinator}} accustomed to taking a beating and keeping his cool.

** Thanks to a brief shot of one of Ross' soldiers sitting with a long item attached to his back (he was really leaning against the vehicle's business-sized antenna), fans immediately assumed it was an EasterEgg, of ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}'s EarlyBirdCameo. Amusingly, [[Film/TheAvengers2012 Hawkeye]] (Creator/JeremyRenner) and this version of Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) ''do'' appear together in ''[[Film/TheBourneSeries The Bourne Legacy]]''.
** William Hurt mentioned he based his portrayal of General Ross off of [[Literature/MobyDick Captain Ahab]]. 3 years later and [[Film/MobyDick guess who plays him.]]
** The last time we see Bruce, he's in hiding again, and his new daily regime involves drinking a bright red tea. The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roselle_%28plant%29 Roselle]] is discovered to have the ability to ''lower blood pressure'', when made into tea. It is bright red. This leads to FridgeBrilliance: Remember all the times we see green drinks? This is a literal case of "red means stop, green means go".
** In a interview with MYV where Louis Leterrier discussed an idea of having Tobey Maguire cameo as Spider-Man in this film, which was scrapped, that "Years from now you'll see Peter Parker meeting Bruce Banner", Fast-Foward to 2015; and his prediction came to pass.
** This film's introduction of The Leader has notoriously gone without any follow-up in the MCU thus far. In ''Film/FantasticFour2015'', Tim Blake Nelson got screwed out of a recurring villain role (well, until the film's horrible performance killed the possibility of sequels) ''again'' when his character was first written as Mole Man, then was changed to a CanonForeigner and killed off.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Betty Ross was initially not that well liked for being seen as boring or even whiny compared to most of the other MCU love interests. After being inexplicably ignored in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' and ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', and having a romantic storyline which is more developed and substantial than some of the ones found in later MCU films (including that of Bruce's other love interest Black Widow), she's gained a small fandom who wants to see her return, especially on Website/{{Tumblr}} or Website/YouTube.

* RewatchBonus: Try watching this movie after ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' and look for the WorldBuilding references (i.e., [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger the Super-soldier serum]] and [[Film/IronMan the Stark Industries-designed weapons]]). It's a ''very'' different experience from watching ''TIH'' ''before'' the ''Avengers''.

** This movie has the origin story of The Leader, but he's had essentially zero presence in the MCU past this point despite being one of Hulk's arch-enemies and having very good villain potential. However, given he is canonically still alive, it cannot be discarded he will be reused in the future (hopefully).
