* BrokenBase: Mainly concerning the permanent ArtEvolution the series had.
** [[BigBad The Huntsman]] is the worst of the [[TheHunter the Huntsclan]], seeing as he is their leader. He kidnapped Rose at birth and is quite possibly the one who personally brainwashed her into believing in the Huntsclan way of life. As Rose's abduction means that this is probably the way that all Huntsclan members are recruited, this possibly gives him somewhat of a FreudianExcuse. However, seeing as his hatred has consumed him to the point where he has continued to kidnap infants from their parents despite knowing that he himself was kidnapped, he could be considered even '''more''' of a monster. The Huntsman has also killed a magical creature onscreen and, of course, who could forget that when he found out about Rose's HeelFaceTurn, he [[MoralEventHorizon threatened to kill her parents if she refused to help him acquire the means to kill every single magical creature on the face of the Earth]].
** The Dark Dragon is also a nasty piece of work. While he has much less screentime than the Huntsman, he makes up for it with the sheer scale of his evil. He basically wants to corrupt all magical beings and wipe out humanity. There's a reason the rest of the dragons consider him the BigBad and not the Huntsman (though Jake and the Huntsman have a much deeper personal grudge).
*** Just an idea of how horrible the scales are: On a list dedicated to the 13 most evil beings in the Magical World, The Huntsman is ''only'' listed as #4, with the Dark Dragon taking the #1 spot.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Principal Rotwood at the end of "The Rotwood Files".
** Rose's HeroicSacrifice that destroys the Huntsclan for good.
** Haley's CallingTheOldManOut speech in "Being Human".
** Jonathan gets one in "The Long Weekend" and later in "Bite Father, Bite Son." The normally bumbling human dad fights to protect Jake from the Jersey Devil and vampires, respectively. He later helps save the day in the series finale as well.
** Jake slamming The Huntsman into an elevator door in ''Homecoming''.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming: In "The Long Weekend," Jonathan explains why he protected Jake from the JerseyDevil (which he assumed to be a bear): "Father code." Later on, Jake refers to his dad as his hero.
** Jake and Rose's kiss in both "The Academy" and "Hong Kong Longs".
* CrossoverShip: A rare canon example, Lao-Shi falls in love with [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Mrs. Hasagawa]] in the LiloAndStitchTheSeries episode "Morpholomew", but has to leave her when he goes home to New York.
** On the fanon side, [[KimPossible Ron]] and Jake are quite popular.
* EarWorm: He's cool, he's hot like a frozen sun...
** Haley's theme.
* EvilIsSexy: According to Fury: "Wow. I am ''hot''."
** Rose before her HeelFaceTurn
* GrowingTheBeard: The 2nd season has been considered an improvement, thanks to a change in direction with [[KimPossible Steve Loter]].
* HarsherInHindsight: Rose knowingly and willingly committed mass genocide by wishing for the destruction of the Huntsclan. Her voice actor, Creator/MaeWhitman also voiced Katara from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', at the same time, in fact. Katara's close friend Aang, the titular character, was the last of his kind due to the mass genocide of his people. This is made all the harsher when one takes into account that [[OfficialCouple Aang was in love with Katara]], though [[FanPreferredCouple many prefer her with the Dante Basco character...]]
* NightmareFuel: The Kelpie is rather scary.
* TheScrappy: Trixie is a bit too much for most people.
** As well as Huntsboys #88 and #89. Veered into CreatorsPet territory after [[spoiler: the Hunstmen as a whole were killed off, but the two continued to appear anyway.]] Though they quit being Hunstmen at the last minute and weren't real Hunstmen in the first place.
* TearJerker: The entire ending of "Homecoming". The ending of "Ski Trip" as well.
* TheWoobie: Rose.
** Jake has his moments.
