Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Stevie's evil plan amounts to getting rid of the one-wizard-per-family rule. Considering how the show does demonstrate how much damage this rule does with Megan, Kelbo, and Jerry, it comes off as her wanting for a more unified wizarding world.

* TheScrappy: Many fans don't understand how Alex acts so different when Mason's around, not to mention how he was a {{jerkass}} [[StalkerWithACrush stalker]] in "Wizards vs. Werewolves", "killing" Juliet and effectively rendering both Justin and Alex heartbroken for the majority of Season 3. Many people who like him are either [[PortmanteauCoupleName Alason]] {{shipp|ing}}ers, or they just think Gregg Sulkin is cute. This is not helped by the fact that [[EnsembleDarkhorse Juliet]] appeared in less episodes in season 4 (justified since Brigit Mendler was busy doing ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'' at the time and couldn't return until during the final episodes) and that he appeared in more episodes during this season.

* {{Fanon}}: A good half of the fandom believes that someone is adopted. The most accused of this fate is Justin, because he doesn't look Latino like Alex and Max. The three kids are Latino and Italian, Justin simply inherited his looks from his father. Not to mention Justin was ripped from existence in [[TheMovie the movie]]. This infers that if anyone were to be adopted, it would be Alex. The Family Wizard is immune to the effects of the spell, and Alex had, by the climax of the movie, become the family wizard, and thus Justin was next in line to be ripped from existence.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** Alex, Type IV AntiHero, or Type IV AntiVillain?
*** Alex enjoys fighting with Justin and teases him relentlessly, mainly because she wants to get his attention and seeks his acceptance. This is heavily implied in some episodes like "Dollhouse", where she laughs and jumps happily when Justin yells at her, saying "there's the fight I was looking for!", then hugs him, and ''Art Museum Piece'' when she wants him to say that her work ''is cool''. This interpretation of Alex was pretty much made canon with the episode "Delinquent Justin", where Alex reveals her plan to keep Justin from leaving and going to college. This showed that Alex has spent ''at least'' the last 4-5 years of her life wanting Justin's praise and attention, most of her schemes are simply trying to keep it.

** This show is pushing the limits on what can be shown on DisneyChannel due to some content (werewolves, vampires, Alex's AntiVillain tendencies).

** A much more common fan theory is that Stevie is a lesbian. There's nothing ever to refute it in canon and the character is AmbiguouslyGay

** Pretty much Alex interacting with female characters.



* PortmanteauCoupleName: [[FanPreferredCouple Jalex (Justin/Alex)]] -- Your Squick May Vary. Also, Marper (Max/Harper)- apparently this is rubbing off on the fans more than the OfficialCouple, Zarper (Zeke/Harper), Alason (Alex/Mason), [[HoYay Jax (Justin/Max) and Halex (Alex/Harper)]]- two of the most popular same-sex pairings.

* ReplacementScrappy: Maxine(Max in a little girl body) to fans of Max's actor, the temporarily absent Jake T. Austin. This is a very unusual case, since they are technically the same character.

** Some say the season went downhill early as season two. During that season, Alex's jerkass personality starts to develop.

** Despite being the main character, Alex is this for many episodes, not that she does not indulge in bad behavior. The girl cannot breath without being treated like she is the Anti-Christ. Some of the most infamous examples include "Alex's Logo", where Alex is enchanted into speaking what is on her mind, and is punished for it, or "Re-Test", where Alex is entirely blamed for Aunt Megan's actions, instead of Aunt Megan. This gets especially bad during the finale when [[spoiler:Alex convinces Justin and Max to give up their powers in order to save Harper and Zeke. After losing their powers, Justin and Max become extremely abusive towards Alex, and are portrayed in the right for doing so. The fact that they were willing to let people die is never acknowledged.]] Harper calls everyone out on this in the reunion special, saying they should love Alex for who she is and not constantly expect her to change.

* HarsherInHindsight: After Ian Abercrombie's death, Professor Crumbs [[spoiler:retiring the Headmaster of [=WizTech=] position to Justin seems a little bit more difficult to watch.]]
