* BaseBreaker: Jerry in spades. There's often very little middle ground in those who root for him and those who consider him the actual villain.

* InternetBackdraft: When news came of the release of Tom and Jerry Golden Collection Vol. 2 deliberately not including the long awaited shorts "Mouse Cleaning" and "Casanova Cat", Warner Home Video got hit with such rapid online backlash from fans and collectors (amazon.com's [[http://www.amazon.com/Tom-Jerry-Golden-Collection-Blu-ray/product-reviews/B008POPRS8 page for the set]] has ''128 one star reviews, all complaining about this'') that they decided to postpone its release (although its uncertain if it will get released with the shorts, or will be canned altogether).

** Similarly, does Tom really chase and/or torment Jerry for the heck of it,or is he just doing his job under his owners' orders?

** The fifties era Hanna Barbara shorts gained a better grasp of the grey dynamic between the two. The slapstick was more free game, Tom usually avoided being a DesignatedVillain, with Jerry either having a more benevolent personality or being punished whenever he surpassed Tom's mean streak. Their FriendlyEnemy chemistry was also displayed on a more regular basis. Most of the supporting characters had also been fully established and different backdrops from the usual household were frequently used, making for less formulaic scenarios.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: It is easy for first time viewers to assume that Jerry is a female since he has long eyelashes, [[MasculineLinesFeminineCurves round features]], [[PaleFemalesDarkMales a light color palette]], a tendency [[TakeThatKiss to kiss Tom,]] and a [[MamaBear motherly protectiveness]] over his sidekick whether it be a younger mouse, baby bird, duckling, or puppy. In ''Tom and Jerry: The Movie'', he even has a female voice actress.

** Let's not forget, his original name was Jynx, which leaves his gender quite ambiguous.

* DorkAge: The Gene Deitch shorts, which wreck the formula by giving Tom a {{Jerkass}} owner who beats the stuffing out of him whenever he slips up. Moreover, it suffered a lot of [[OffModel animation errors]]. Not to mention the 1980s TV shorts.

* DesignatedVillain: By the same token, we're almost ''never'' meant to be rooting for Tom, even if he didn't actually do anything to provoke Jerry (or if Jerry doesn't even have the right to be provoked, like in the short when he screws with Tom's opera recital because it was disturbing his sleep or ruined Tom's game of golf because again, it disturbed Jerry's sleep; never mind that Jerry's the idiot who decided to set up shop in a concert hall's grand piano or inside the hole at a golf course.
