* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: The test screening for the first pilot was an absolute disaster, with children complaining about the unusual character designs and one even going as far as to say that Craig [=McCracken=] should ''be fired''[[note]]This kid would later serve as the inspiration for [[TakeThat the show's bully Mitch Mitchelson]][[/note]]. Craig went to work redesigning the characters with more traditional features, but then-president of Creator/CartoonNetwork Mike Lazo reassured him that a negative reaction was better than a lukewarm reaction, and that they shouldn't change a thing.

** From "Cover Up," a floored Buttercup's pathetic [[LittleNo "Nooo"]] when a rather diminutive monster marches toward her. She just let herself get beaten up because she hadn't rubbed her good-luck blanket, but when taken out of context, this clip has some rather unfortunate FridgeHorror. Needless to say, without context, [[WebVideo/YouTubePoop Poopers]] had a field day remixing this clip.

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: The Powerpuff Girls themselves can be guilty of this, but out of the three of them, '''Blossom''' takes the cake. Not only has she been shipped with [[FoeYay Mojo Jojo, HIM]], [[SpearCounterpart Brick]], [[FoeYay Boomer, Butch]], [[HoYay Princess]], [[IncestYayShipping her own sisters]], and her [[ScrewYourself evil counterpart Brute]], but she has also been shipped with WesternAnimation/{{Dexter|sLaboratory}}, [[WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown Jack Spicer]], and '''''[[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack AKU]]''''', of all people!

** The Girls themselves [[DependingOnTheWriter can occasionally]] fall into this area. The aforementioned "Mime for a Change" and "Slave the Day" have them beat up characters who were either [[NotHimself not entirely at fault]] or [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone incredibly remorseful for their actions]] and they are supposed to still be cheered for it (as seen from the Narrator's comments).
*** In the former episode's case, the ending was ''actually going'' to be a happy one for Rainbow the clown where the girls let him off the hook... Until the [[ExecutiveMeddling network executives]] decided that [[EsotericHappyEnding Rainbow ending up in jail is a "better" ending]] (to which some fans and ''parents'' reacted negatively).

** Robin Snyder from "Superfriends". She only appeared in that one episode, but Robin is one of the most popular characters on the show because of how cute she is, also ''especially'' for her [[Radar/ThePowerpuffGirls "I was an accident too" line.]]

** There are disproportionate amount of fanfics about the characters as teens however there's quite a bit of fanon, especially in {{Dark Fic}}s, that they cannot age due to being {{Artificial Human}}s. Other side-effects include being immortal and (especially in Blossom's case) being very precocious to the point of CreepyChild degrees.

A fair portion of the fanbase were in favor of Professor Utonium and Ms. Keane hooking up. Alas, it was not to be. (So far.))
** Most fanfics consist of pairing up usually aged up versions of the Powerpuff Girls with the Rowdyruff Boys. The default ships are Blossom/Brick, Buttercup/Butch, and Bubbles/Boomer however some fans mix them up.
** Though not as popular as others, when it comes to femslash most pair up Blossom and Princess.

* GirlShowGhetto: Averted, one of the most revered cartoons during its era by both sexes. And despite the ass-kicking, the girls were pretty girly.

** At the same time, online you'll see a lot of men mention that as boys they were embarrassed to be seen watching a "girl's show" like ''The Powerpuff Girls'' and treated it as a GuiltyPleasure. This is despite the fact that the cartoon wasn't female-aimed. It was a unisex cartoon that just happened to have a feminine aesthetic.



** In the ChristmasSpecial "The Fight Before Christmas", the Mayor asks Santa for a "[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony My Little Horsie]]" doll, the joke being that he's a grown man. Even funnier -- Creator/LaurenFaust worked on this episode, and guess [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic what came back in 2010 on the Hub.]]

* NeverLiveItDown: While Buttercup is in fact a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and has proven herself to be a decent person despite her violent and rude ways, a few fans refuse to forget about episodes where she is particularly deplorable and given inexplicable RonTheDeathEater traits by the writers, such as knocking villains' teeth out just so she can get money in "Moral Decay" and making Bubbles cry in "All Chalked Up".

** Bunny from "Twisted Sister". She truly did mean well, but she [[DramaticallyMissingThePoint missed the point of the Girls's instructions]] and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero unintentionally made things worse]]. Even worse, the Girls tell her she's not meant to be one of them (although they did regret it later). [[spoiler:The poor girl ends up dying at the end of the episode.]]
