!!Examples from Wonder Woman in Comics
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: There's [[http://baneofnecks.tumblr.com/ an entire blog]] dedicated to exploring the interpretation of Wonder Woman as a murderous, bigoted sociopath who casually kills people she could easily take alive.
* BrokenBase:
** Many of the New 52 costume changes, Superman's in particular, have come under a lot of fire from fans. Likely to curb these complaints, Wonder Woman's costume had the PaintedOnPants shown during the reboot's promotion removed. However, many fans actually prefer and defend the costume ''with'' the pants, partly due to reasons like [[{{Stripperiffic}} Diana being too dignified to wear a one-piece swimsuit around]] and the pointed subduing of [[WearingAFlagOnYourHead out-of-place American flag elements]] (remember that the character is ''Greek'' and is introduced to the United States late in life). It helps that the pants look much better drawn by [[http://i.imgur.com/pSc60A6.jpg Cliff Chiang]], while the fuss-raising promotional artwork was by [[http://i.imgur.com/cJTq9xX.jpg Jim Lee]].
** Wonder Woman's haughty and short-tempered characterization in the New 52 outside of her own book has also drawn many complaints.
** Also in the New 52, the recasting of the Amazons as a people that propagate by seducing and then murdering sailors and then selling their male children as slaves (albeit ones apparently well-treated by Hephaestus) has provoked a great deal of controversy. Some say that this is accurate to Greek myths, while others see it as perhaps the most blatant [[StrawFeminist Straw Feminization]] in DC history, and question how such a morally corrupted society could produce a hero like Wonder Woman, and how she could grow up knowing nothing about it.
** Wonder Woman dating {{Superman}} - with their traditional love interests LoisLane and Steve Trevor cast aside - has caused a lot of ShipToShipCombat.
*** In some cases, it's because fans seriously think Wonder Woman is supposed to date {{Batman}} based on the DCAU.
** Wonder Woman being the biological daughter of Zeus in the New 52 has also been quite the hot button topic among fans. Some see it as an interesting twist and updating of the character while others see it as a violation of everything Wonder Woman was ever meant to represent.
*** Likewise, her not being made of clay anymore (instead being a normal birth) is a heavy topic.
** With her movie announced, there's a lot of debate about whether [[Series/BreakingBad Michelle MacLaren]] can direct it well or whether Gal Godot is a good casting choice.
* CommonKnowledge: It's widely "known" that Wonder Woman wore a skirt in the Golden Age. And it's true... sort of. In her very first story (''All-Star Comics'' #8), she wears what ''appears'' to be a skirt, but isn't. It's actually a pair of culottes -- a style popular among athletic young women at the time that ''resembles'' a skirt, but is actually shorts. And even those shorts evolved quickly into tight shorts [[http://www.carolastrickland.com/comics/wwcentral/costume_indices/wwcost1.html that lost the "skirt" look entirely]]. Nevertheless, whenever a modern artist wants to evoke a "Golden Age Wonder Woman" look, she's almost invariably drawn wearing a skirt.
* CompleteMonster:
** What [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Dr.]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Psycho]] [[DepravedDwarf lacks in height, he makes up for in depravity]]. A psychotic dwarf who bears a grudge against nearly everyone, Psycho is a violent [[HeManWomanHater misogynist]], SerialKiller, [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]] and [[SerialRapist rapist]], and he combines this with incredibly potent PsychicPowers that include MoreThanMindControl and some minor RealityWarper traits (his classical "create and shape ectoplasm" abilities). His crimes are myriad, but one that truly cements his classication as a CompleteMonster is this: he once used his psychic powers to take control of dozens of innocents, promptly forcing them to engage in cannibalism of each other. Not only did this ''turn him on'', he decided to [[MindRape force the victims he was controlling to experience his sexual pleasure as if it were their own]]. Eventually, he grew bored and let the survivors go free, condemning them to associate those traumatic memories with arousal and to suffer with it forever-more. Dr. Psycho gleefully participates in such atrocities and remembers them with the relish a normal human being would associate with savoring delicious food.
** [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Doctor]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Poison]] II has only had a few appearances, but has made up for that with the sheer ugliness of the crimes she commits. The granddaughter of a Japanese war criminal, she has continued her grandmother's research, creating new toxins and diseases with which to infect the world. Kidnapping a man named Richard Agoras, Doctor Poison subjected him to lengthy torture and experimentation, ultimately using the Pandora Virus to mutate him into a hideous monster, and unleashing him on Wonder Woman. When captured following this incident, Doctor Poison unleashed the Pandora Virus into the atmosphere, endangering millions of lives. Escaping custody, Poison joined Queen Clea's new Villainy Incorporated, and helped to overrun the nation of Skartaris, requesting that any prisoners they took be turned over to her for further use in her experiments. Obsessed with producing the perfect toxic agents and little else, and making her appearance as horrible as possible in order to maximise fear in her victims, Doctor Poison is as bad as a MadScientist can get.
* CreepyAwesome: Dr. Psycho.
* DesignatedHero: Her New 52 incarnation who lectures people in danger for being weak instead of saving them (at first), casually kills villains and is proud of it, and lets the Amazons propagate by raping and murdering sailors and then selling male children as slaves just because said slaves are treated decently by their owner.
* DorkAge: The I Ching kung fu period.
* FandomBerserkButton: WW or the Amazons being depicted as {{Straw Feminist}}s. Also, the Amazons getting massacred, ''yet again.''
** For a long time the lack of a Wonder Woman movie was this, before her first live-action film was announced and slated for 2016.
* FetishFuelStationAttendant: Blatantly S&M during the William Moulton Marston era, and T&A during the current age of comics.
* FoeYay: Dr Psycho has a twisted, sick inflatuation on Wonder Woman. Of course, it's not reciprocate.
* GodModeSue: Sometimes, DependingOnTheWriter.
* HilariousInHindsight: ''Wonder Woman'' (vol. 1) #296 featured a villain by the name of... [[BitTrip Commander Video]].
** An Episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' had Wonder Woman meeting Hermes with him saying her ''formality was unnecessary since she was practically part of the family''. Come the Comicbook/{{New 52}} [[spoiler: where Diana is now the daughter of Zeus]].
* InformedRealLifeFame: Her status as being one of DC's "Big Three", the other two being Superman and Batman. The sad fact is is that they're both far more popular than she is, and the details of their series are far more well known. Wonder Woman's mythology and supporting cast have often suffered inconsistencies, with even the writers struggling to figure out what her driving motivation is. As detailed elsewhere, most potential adaptations of her end up never being made, with the live action series being the only one that's really well known. She ''is'' undeniably famous--but mainly in the sense that most people know ''of'' her, less so in the sense that many people know that much ''about'' her.
* InkStainAdaptation: The Lynda Carter TV series, especially since unlike her [[Franchise/{{Superman}} famous]] [[Franchise/{{Batman}} teammates]], Diana hasn't had any really well-known adaptations since. When ABC News reported on TheMovie, they claimed it would be an adaptation of the TV show with absolutely no mention that, you know, it's a comic book.
* [[MyRealDaddy My Real Parents]]: For the modern generation, Gail Simone and Greg Rucka. For a generation ago, George Perez. Brian Azzarello's current run may take him to this status as well.
** Peter David is often considered this for Cassandra Sandsmark/Wonder Girl II.
* StrangledByTheRedString: Subverted in the ''InfiniteCrisis'' storyline "One Year Later". It had Diana suddenly involved in a relationship with Nemesis (Tom Tresser), a new co-worker and long-time minor DC character. Many fans felt this new hookup was rushed at best, especially since Tom was [[NotAsYouKnowThem considerably more boorish than in previous appearances]]. Eventually, in ''WonderWoman'' #32, It's revealed that Diana never had romantic feelings towards Tom at all; she was just exploiting his feelings towards her to get him to father her daughters and replenish the Amazon population.
* TrueArtIsAngsty: In the New 52, DC seems bizarrely obsessed with depicting Wonder Woman as an edgy AntiHero who kills her enemies rather than arresting.
* WereStillRelevantDammit:
** The pants-and-leather-jacket costume introduced in ''Odyssey'' has come under fire for this. Especially since that for a 2010 retool, the style seems awfully Nineties...
** Because there have been so many failed live-action adaptations of the show, there are a lot of rejected treatments, film scripts and that infamous 2011 pilot floating around the internet. Despite the fact that fans are scrambling for ''something'' to happen (considering there have been 8 live-action Superman adaptations and 5 of Batman, fans are afraid that a live-action WW is quickly entering the ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' territory of being physically ''impossible'' to live up to the hype around it), they just cannot agree on what it should be.
* TheWoobie: ''Hades'' in The Comicbook/{{New 52}} continuity, [[EverybodyHatesHades believe it or not]].
** Also Persephone.
** JerkassWoobie: Hera in The Comicbook/{{New 52}}.

!!Examples from Wonder Woman in LiveActionTV
* EarWorm: The TV theme song. Sure, Franchise/{{Batman}} and Franchise/{{Superman}} get full orchestras, but only WW gets a funk bassline and backup singers.
* HollywoodHomely: Mocked a bit in "Beauty on Parade". Diana proposes infiltrating a USO beauty pageant to find a saboteur. Steve objects, thinking they would need somebody really gorgeous to pull off an undercover like that. Diana does it behind his back, and the enthusiasm from the pageant organizers reveals that Steve is, well, kind of a moron.
* NarmCharm: Reaches its peak in "Skateboard Whiz", when Wonder Woman -- you guessed it -- chases a fleeing car on a skateboard. It is ''impossible'' not to love it.
* WTHCastingAgency: In the episode "The Pied Piper", casting comedic nebbish Martin Mull to play a flamboyant rock star.

!!Examples from Wonder Woman in [[WesternAnimation/WonderWoman the 2009 DTV Animated Movie]]
* LesYay: Inevitable given the source material, but practically everyone seems to assume that Artemis is a lesbian in this version.
* MagnificentBastard: ''Hades'', dear Lord Hades. He initially refused to remove Ares' shackles, claiming that Zeus had asked him not to. What he neglected to mention was that [[spoiler: Zeus asked him not to because he foresaw that it would get Ares killed.]]
--> '''Hades to Ares [[spoiler:when he appears in the Underworld after his death]]''': [[spoiler:A tragedy. A terrible terrible tragedy. How it weighs on my heart to see you like this. When my brother asked me not to remove your bands he said I was only dooming you, that he could not save you from yourself yet again. Perhaps, I should have listened.]]
* {{Narm}}: Alexa [[spoiler:as a zombie]] finally decides to fight. Awesome! Oh, no. Wait. [[spoiler:Ares simply returns all the Amazon zombies to death ten seconds later]].
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: When this film was released, many felt it was too violent for its PG-13 rating (and this is only after it was edited in preproduction down from an R rating). But after such other DC Animated Features like ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox'', each one even more violent and gruesome than ''Wonder Woman'' (and still under a PG-13!), the complaints are looking pretty passť.
* {{Squick}}: Hippolyta and Ares have a child, Thrax. In the comics and the myths, Ares is Hippolyta's father...
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: Hippolyta and her Amazons battle to defeat the god of war's forces... in front of TheVietnamWar Memorial (which fortunately [[TooSoon did not]] suffer MonumentalDamage).
