* JerksssWoobie: Ogilvy's more than a little unhinged, but he's a man who's just lost his entire family. That, combined with watching the world get taken over by aliens, would make anyone have problems.

* {{Narm}}: The flaming train scene is so unexpected that it's either this or outright terrifying.

* TheScrappy: Robbie. His detractors point out he spends a lot of the movie being an [[{{Jerkass}} asshole]] whilst seemingly wanting to get himself killed charging off into harms way.[[spoiler: The fact his [[TooDumbToLive suicidal actions]] don't get him killed, and his survival is never explained, only annoyed his critics more]].
** Rachel for some, due to her constant screaming.

** Fans are often irritated by Rachel too, largely for being TheLoad.

* CreatorsPet - Debbie, who goes on to dominate many of the second season episodes, and is eventually the one who kills the lead Morthren in the season finale.
* FridgeLogic - It's discovered in the first episode that the bacteria that put the aliens into hibernation is killed off by radiation. It looks the creators forgot that each one of the war machines had an UNSHIELDED nuclear reactor powering it.

to:

* CreatorsPet - BrokenBase: The Frank Mancuso Jr.-produced second season split the fanbase into pieces as soon as the season premiere aired, via [[spoiler:killing off Norton and Ironhorse, decimating the house where the Blackwood Project was stationed, moving the action TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture and forcing the main characters to go into hiding while an offshoot of the Mor-Tax aliens kill off the first season's antagonists and begin running the show]]. That said, there are people who like the cyberpunk atmosphere and darker stories versus the first season.
* CreatorsPet:
Debbie, who goes on to dominate many of the second season episodes, and is eventually the one who kills the lead Morthren in the season finale.
* FridgeLogic - It's discovered in EsotericHappyEnding: The series ends with the main characters celebrating their victory over (and resulting peace treaty with) the Morthren by taking a walk at sunrise and remarking how much better things are... that is, until you realize that the first episode season set up a major plot hook that the bacteria there was a secondary hostile alien force that put was set to land on the aliens into hibernation is killed off by radiation. It looks planet within the creators forgot that each one of the war machines had an UNSHIELDED nuclear reactor powering it.next five years.




to:

* TheWoobie: Debbie, who hardly has anything resembling a normal childhood and is forced to watch as two of her friends die grisly deaths, barely gets any interaction with kids her own age and watches the one alien friend she has get murdered in front of her before wielding a gun for the first time and killing the lead villain.

* TheWoobie: Rachel, for those who weren't annoyed by her screaming. It helps that Dakota Fanning gives an excellent performance.
** Ray has his moments, especially when he's realizing his shortcomings as a father.
