* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The theory has been made that her power is actually the ability to warp reality. This is why she is able to defeat such strong opponents; the "talking to squirrels" shtick is just what she chooses to live as. Some people even think that she might be an Aspect/Avatar/Personification of [[{{God}} The One-Above-All]] himself, who occasionally comes to Earth to have a little fun.
* AuthorsSavingThrow by way of WorfHadTheFlu: Uatu the Watcher is present in the panel where Squirrel Girl had defeated Thanos just to clarify that that Thanos isn't a "robot, clone, or simulacrum". Then in another series, Thanos mentions that he can create clones of himself that even the Watcher cannot tell aren't him. And ''then'' WordOfGod states that that Thanos really wasn't a clone. All these were written by Dan Slott, making him pingpong against himself. It's not the first time he's has gone back and forth like that. Just look at the whole ComicBook/SheHulk[=/=]Juggernaut thing.
* BrokenBase: Squirrel Girl's slightly [[http://popwatch.ew.com/2014/10/06/squirrel-girl-marvel/# chubbier]] [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/prev_img.php?pid=29022&disp=ilib&oty=1&oid=56067 redesign]] for her solo series. Some think she's still adorable, but others think the design choices made is a rather ill fit for her. Yet others like the design on its own, just not the art style that's being used to portray it.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: She may be more popular than the rest of the members of the ComicBook/GreatLakesAvengers put together.
* {{Fanon}}: Somehow people are convinced that the weaker the enemies, the more likely Squirrel Girl is to lose. (Tell that to the Bug-Eyed Voice and those muggers in Central Park.) This is only going to get worse now that she's been "defeated" by a baby.
* FanonDiscontinuity:
** Some fans ignore the canonicity of most of Squirrel Girl's victories; recognizing them as the jokes they are.
** There was some furor over the implication that Logan (Wolverine) had had a fling with her, but that's been relegated to actual discontinuity. Their conversation was about something else entirely. Honest.
* HypeBacklash: Some people wouldn't be nearly so aggravated over all the "Squirrel Girl is awesome and can beat everybody" talk if it weren't repeated so constantly by so many of her fans.
* InternetBackdraft:
** Any Squirrel Girl thread has the potential to blow up into a fight between people who think that anyone who would dare to take a comic seriously is an idiot and that superhero comics should be as goofy, carefree, and lighthearted as possible, and people who think the term "funny pages" should not apply to their Graphic Novels in any way, shape, or form and that the goofy bastards are seeking {{escapism}} without angst.
** The art style for the "Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" comic has met with this. As a reflection of this, any issue featuring Erica's art on the cover ''(even if it's #1 in Near Mint\Mint condition)'' will retail [[http://www.ebay.com/itm/Marvel-NOW-Unbeatable-Squirrel-Girl-1-NM/331439548859 between $2 to $3]], whereas any [[http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-UNBEATABLE-SQUIRREL-GIRL-1-Variant-1-20-OUM-Marvel-NEAR-MINT/141586161701 other]] [[http://www.ebay.com/itm/MARVEL-THE-UNBEATABLE-SQUIRREL-GIRL-1-ARTHUR-ADAMS-1-25-INCENTIVE-VARIANT-COVER/261793771760 artist]] being featured on the cover will fetch ''ten times'' as much.
* ItWasHisSled: How she first defeated Doctor Doom ([[CaptainObvious she sent her squirrel friends upon him]]). That was just the start...
* MemeticBadass:
** Pick a [[strike: comic book]] character, any [[strike: comic book]] character, even a team of [[strike: comic book]] characters. Put them up against Squirrel Girl, and Squirrel Girl will almost universally be the accepted winner.
** Even Marvel's official website seems to have been affected. Just check out [[http://www.marvel.com/universe/Squirrel_Girl her official power ratings]]. By comparison: [[http://www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Doom_%28Victor_von_Doom%29 Dr. Doom's]], [[http://marvel.com/universe/Sentry The Sentry]] and [[http://marvel.com/universe/Galactus Galactus]]!
** Marvel's website contrasts the power levels the fans believe a character to be at with the power levels they are ''officially'' at. And its the ''official'' power levels that are through the roof (topping every single field), so Marvel thinks she's even ''more'' badass than even her fans do!
* MemeticMutation: She might have remained one of Marvel's many appeared-once-and-never-seen-again characters, if her disagreement with Doctor Doom hadn't become a meme.
* {{Moe}}: She's really chipper and happy ''all the time''.
* MyRealDaddy: She first appeared in a 1991 one-shot story by Will Murray and Steve Ditko, but if Dan Slott hadn't decided to bring her back 15 years later in the ''ComicBook/GreatLakesAvengers'' miniseries, she'd be just a minor footnote in Marvel history.
* NeverLiveItDown: Squirrel Girl's writers are determined to rub the ArmedWithCanon fight in Doom's (hideously burned) face as often as possible.
