* UnfortunateImplications: His [[MonochromeCasting lack of nonwhite actors]] in his films has earned him criticism for years, but the controversy surrounding the purposeful RaceLift in his adaptation of ''Literature/MissPeregrinesHomeForPeculiarChildren'' led to Burton [[https://dailygeekette.wordpress.com/2016/10/03/tim-burtons-home-for-white-actors-only/ inadvertently revealing]] his racist, pro-racial separatist beliefs and that they have influenced his casting choices throughout his entire career.

* ScapegoatCreator: Being a director, almost all of the movies he directed were apparently produced, directed, written, created, etc by only ''one'' person: Tim Burton. The only thing he apparently ''didn't'' do for the movies was act in them. The most recent backlash was about the recent ''Alice in Wonderland'', which was apparently written by him despite that even looking at the credits or its page on TheOtherWiki can tell you otherwise.

* TrueArtIsAngsty: For the most part, Burton's movie are tongue-in-cheek with their darkness. However, the few times he's allowed to go as dark as he likes (''Film/BatmanReturns'') or do straight-up horror (''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'') are notoriously depressing.
* UglyCute: Most of his characters, as well as he himself.

* UnfortunateImplications: His lack of non-white actors in his films earned him some criticism for most of his career, but it was his full-blown RaceLift in his adaptation of ''Literature/MissPeregrinesHomeForPeculiarChildren'', not to mention his defense that it had always been done on purpose, that labeled him a pro-segregationist.

* HarsherInHindsight: The lack of people of color in his films becomes this when he revealed in 2016 that this was intentional, and that he harbors racist, quasi-segregationist beliefs.

* FriendlyFandoms: Burton fans tend to get along well with Creator/JhonenVasquez fans for their similarly dark, {{Goth}}y aesthetic (though Vasquez hates being called "goth").
