* BaseBreaker:
** Master Shake. Some either love or hate him for his JerkAss tenancies.
** Frylock is either the OnlySaneMan or a [[StopHavingFunGuys an irritating prick that needs to get that stick out of his ass]].
** The fandom's pretty divided on Carl too, though he's ''far'' from being TheScrappy.
* CrazyAwesome: '''Dr. Weird''', with heavy emphasis on "crazy".
* CrossesTheLineTwice: There are few episodes that don't cross the line a few times.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: It has [[Awesome/AquaTeenHungerForce its own Page for it.]] Being an 11 minute show, this alone should count as one.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Anything Carl says about his gun.
--> Oh, I'll give you a magazine, there buddy. Hey, it's full of hollow points. You're gonna love it when I put those in a gun, and then put 'em in your brain!
** Master Shake turning black and trying out his new "complicated handshake."
** This interaction between Shake and a store clerk:
--> '''Clerk''': Look, uh. We don't cash checks here.
--> '''Master Shake''': And we don't respond to threats! I'll say it one more time in that little language I like to call English. Or maybe I should say it in Mexican-o? Get back there-o and cash-o the check-o, amigo. Andale, Andale.
--> '''Ignignokt''': He's not responding, cup. ''Lay into him more.''
--> '''Err''': (outside with the giant radioactive "check"[[note]]actually a bill[[/note]]) Yeah, lay into him some more!
--> '''Ignignokt''': I've got this, Err.
--> '''Clerk''': That thing there is your check?
--> '''Master Shake''': Yeah, that's the check.
--> '''Clerk''': Well, we don't cash 'em.
--> '''Master Shake''': Oh, you've never seen a check before? Oh, me so sorry. Maybe you're in the wrong business. And maybe immigration would like to know about this.
--> '''Clerk''': Good.. cause I'm American.
--> '''Master Shake''': Well I'm not! But when I become one, maybe then I'll legally buy a weapon and we won't have to vote you out of office. Will we, scumbag?!
** "We are not establishing a democracy in this house! This is a dictatorship! I rule with an iron dick!"
** "Yeah, I'm in the business. The business of kickin' your ass. And lemme tell ya, business is boomin'."
*** "You, uh, lookin' to [[OhCrap expand your business]]?"
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Subverted constantly almost every episode.
-->'''Carl''': There's something I need to say, ya know. Ever since my son was...never conceived because [[BlackComedyRape I never had consensual sex without money involved]], I always sorta looked at you as...well, kind've a thing that I could, ya know, live next to in accordance with state law.
-->'''Meatwad''': Oh, that's sweet. You're trying to say that you love me!
-->'''Carl''': Eh eh eh, let's not get ahead of ourselves here - WHO ARE YOU TAKIN' TO THAT FRIGGIN SUPERBOWL!
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Meatwad's solo in the Movie. Doubles as a BigLippedAlligatorMoment but damn is it awesome.
** Also, the song "Cut Your Tongue Out With A Linoleum Knife," also in the movie, performed by none other than Mastodon.
*** "I'll bite your torso and give you a disease!!"
** "Meatwad get da money, see..."
** Can't forget ''Spirit Journey Formation Anniversary'' - a prog-metal "alternative" to "Happy Birthday To You," performed by Zakk Wylde and a [[{{Rush}} Geddy Lee]] sound-alike.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSRh0eMND0s ending theme]] to ''Patrol Squad'' definitely qualifies. Listen to that badass guitar!
* EarWorm
** "I Like Your Booty (But I'm Not Gay)," from the movie.
** An in-universe example could be MC Pee Pants' "I Need Candy". Even Carl wound up liking it. This was, of course, the plan.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future!
* FauxSymbolism:
** PlayedForLaughs in the episode with Ezekiel:
-->'''Meatwad:''' I'm gonna name you [[DramaticPause Jesus...Ezekiel...]][[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Jesus]]. And that's from the Bible.
** And again when everyone sees [[strike:Jesus]] Gee whiz on the gun shop billboard. But it turned out to just be Music/TedNugent.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The Boston Bomb Scare in 2007: laugh out loud funny; in 2013, [[HarsherInHindsight when bombs actually did go off during the Boston marathon, now the 2007 incident is cringe-inducing]].
* HoYay: Shake, to Frylock.
-->"Why don't ''you'' help me SUCK IT? ''([[BeatPanel beat]])'' ...Wait a minute, that backfired."
* JerkassWoobie: Sure, Carl's rude, obnoxious, and hygienically-challenged, but the sheer amount of shit his neighbors have put him through kinda makes one feel sorry for him.
* MemeticMolester: Handbanana.
** Tonight... '''YOU...'''
*** Kinda inevitable, though. He's a rapist ''{{in-universe}}''.
* '''GENTLEMEN, ''BEHOLD''!!!''' THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF [[MemeticMutation MEMETIC MUTATION]], ISN'T IT, STEVE?
** WHAT HAS SCIENCE DONE?!
** There has also been popularity in photoshopping or drawing Carl's face and body into anime characters, as evidenced [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/bfee55db90e791d2a147a43e04114f14/tumblr_mrqdj4elnk1rlh8muo1_500.jpg here]], [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/18633463dcf45144ae520e15d798cade/tumblr_mhob1lfFqs1rop4q2o1_1280.gif here]] and [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/4ba9e4a2e7bab206801147ce67da44c7/tumblr_motvccooUS1rl7xito1_500.jpg here]].
** "I get it. It ain't making me laugh, but I get it."
* MoralEventHorizon - Master Shake putting Meatwad's kittens in the microwave.
** "Do the math! You had one, now you have none!"
*** It's worse than that. The first kitten was Meatwad's. The second one was Shake's, and he forgot that Mr. Sparkles wasn't the meat's when he put him in.
** Also Carl when he forced his successful alternate version to become more like him (and alienating his family and dangerously becoming unhealthy) until he committed suicide.
** Then there's the time Frylock murders the boyfriend of the woman he's stalking (in front of her) and uses his corpse to impersonate him and go out with her.
* NightmareFuel: Wong Burger Employees might qualify.
** Santa Claus getting his skin burned off, not dying, and getting his skin replaced by soccer balls.
** Dr. Wong Burger in "The Creature from the Plaque Lagoon".
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zbe_q7ZyFnM The scene in question]].
** The ''Aqua Something You Know Whatever'' opening is DERANGED.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJqBLogconw I'M IN YOUR HOUSE.]]
*** Actually, the whole episode "The Cloning" was scary as hell.
** The ending of "[[{{Gorn}} The Shaving]]".
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MYQwtSxDNs#t=2m05s JUICE!]]
* RewatchBonus: All the numerous hints at [[spoiler: Frylock being a lesbian trapped in a man's body as a box of fries]] become a lot more noticeable once you've seen TheMovie.
* SeasonalRot - Episodes from season 4 and beyond for the most part haven't been well-received by fans.
** Alternatively, many think that the show got ''even worse'' with each rename.
* UglyCute: Meatwad.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs
* TheWoobie: Meatwad and Frylock (most of the time)
