Dethroning Moment: Regular Show
Even a cartoon as high-quality as Regular Show will have moments that leave a bad taste in your mouth. Let's just put it in Pops' words that these episodes are "baaaad shoooooow"s.

bobdrantz: As of its second season, Regular Show is taking something of a downhill turn. The episode "Appreciation Day" was bad enough with its predictable storyline and poor use of characters, but that's not even the DMOS. No, that honor goes to "My Mom". It's a poorly-written Shoot the Shaggy Dog story in which Mordecai and Rigby end up being supervised by Muscle Man and High-Five Ghost. Sure, the episode starts out decent enough with the main duo finding out that Muscle Man is pretty cool, despite being a Jerk Ass. However, Mordecai then points out that he finds Muscle Man's "My mom!" jokes are annoying and proceeds to tell a bunch of "Your mom" jokes...and it goes downhill from there. Why? Well, first of all, you'd think that this means that the episode would have Muscle Man's mother show up for one reason or another. Instead, his brother shows up (Which makes no sense) and they proceed to make Mordecai and Rigby kiss and eat a picture of Muscle Man's butt. It makes no sense. The ending feels tacked on and forced and brings the entire episode down. Not to mention that Muscle Man works best as a Running Gag character, and his voice is too aggravating to listen to for longer than five minutes.
fluffything: How does one utterly ruin an absolutely heartwrenchingepisode? By pulling a rather dickish Ass Pull of course. Case in point, the episode Out Of Commission. Long story short, the episode involves Mordecai and Rigby having to take their old golf-kart to the dump since its being replaced by a newer higher-tech kart. They dump soda onto the old kart and it magically springs to life. The rest of the episode centers around "Kart" wanting to do various things with the bird-n-raccoon duo before being destroyed with the final thing being to "go out in a blaze of glory". This could've (and should've) been a great touching episode paralleling what it's like to spend one's final days with those one cares about. But, then the dick-move comes in where Benson calls them and tells them that they couldn't afford the new kart and that they can bring the old kart back causing Mordecai and Rigby to groan in frustration. Just...I'm sorry, what? Hey, writers? You just utterly belittled one of the most beautiful and touching episodes of any episode I've ever seen in a series with that one scene.
Alvarocasalino: Regular Show is one of my favorite animated series from the recent years, but I canīt stand The Best Burger in the World due the Flanderization suffered by Benson in this chapter: Many previous episodes showed Benson's starting to become at least semi-sympathetic towards Mordecai and Rigby (for example in Benson Be Gone) and also showed that (very deep inside, at least) he considered them as his friends. However, in The Best Burger in the World he behaves like a complete Jerk Ass towards Mordecai and Rigby, as if he really hated them. All the previous Character Development is thrown out the window just for a one-off gag. The awful and mean-spirited ending just makes the whole thing even worse, and makes it very hard to find Benson likeable after that episode.
Bob The Hun: Many moments related to Mordecai and Rigby are a DMOS, but specifically "Replaced", where they sabotage better workers to keep a job they don't deserve and get away with it. I don't see how fans see Benson as a jerk and sympathize with Mordecai and Rigby. They are clearly undeserving of there jobs and Benson is made to be a jerk for yelling at them or punishing them. Sometimes Benson goes too far but Mordecai and Rigby are Karma Houdinis (barring some exceptions). I'd post more examples but the rules only allow for one entry per person. It wouldn't be so bad if Mordecai and Rigby weren't shown to time and time again to be everything Benson says they are, or if their laziness was some Informed Ability. But it's shown constantly to be true.
CR Martin: I am a huge Regular Show fan. I have enjoyed the show's best moments with every fiber in my body and have tolerated most (not all) of the show's slip-ups. But there is one slip-up I cannot comprehend let alone slide off my shoulders, which is in Think Positive. The first of the episode's pros is Pops showing a more 'seasoned' side of him that I appreciate, besides his trademark Cloud Cuckoo Lander disposition; him not taking too kindly to Benson's harsh treatment towards Mordecai and Rigby and taking action has me beginning to like him after one whole season's worth of his nonsense, and that's saying something. The second is giving the depth that Benson really needed; controlling his temper is not only taxing for him, but brings back painful memories of his upbringing which shows him to be rather timid until coaxed by his family. And I'm glad he was able to call out Mordecai and Rigby during the climax. That leads me to the first of the episode's cons. After noticing their boss's struggle to keep himself composed, do Mordecai and Rigby try to change themselves for the better? Of course fucking not, they do the contrary by behaving like complete assholes and taking advantage of Benson. Perhaps the real kicker is the worse of the two cases of OOC Is Serious Business in this episode: while Pops does show his competence, albeit rather late at this point in the series, it's Mordecai who pissed me the fuck off. You would think that he would cut down on the antics he and Rigby get into. And being Rigby, he's the first to instigate these antics, and his are usually more idiotic than the ones Mordecai instigates. Never would I think that Mordecai would drop to Rigby's brand of stupidity, but he did in this episode. Note that this is the same blue jay who usually knows his bounds and if he's overstepped them. That must be some excellent shit he sniffed or some strong booze he guzzled down (if he does drink booze, that is).
Super Saiya Man: Wall Buddy. Or 'why the viewers should view Rigby as a Scrappy'. Rigby raises a stink when Mordecai correctly blames him for the mess in Rigby's half of their room and whines and tries to get out of it. This is the characterization that people hated on Rigby in Season 2, yet the episode sides with him (even having Mordecai apologize)! Instead of just manning up and cleaning the room Rigby first hides all the trash in Mordecai's bed, the closet, and Mordecai's bureau. When he's caught he tries to get Thomas to do it but is shot down. Then Rigby orders the Wall Buddy-an automatic room divider to get all his trash on Mordecai's side and then acts like a jackass to his so called best friend, and then forces a fight when Mordecai gets angry about how much of a baby Rigby is being and ends up trashing the house and the park. All in all, it made Rigby go from a likable lovable slacker to one of the show's Scrappies overnight.
Luna87: I'd like to second that. What really annoyed me about this episode is that, like you said, we were expected to be on Rigby's side. The fact that Mordecai rightfully called him on being a lazy slob, and Rigby whined at him for not backing him up with Benson was what annoyed me the most. So, what? You should always back up your friends and clean up after their messes (literal or otherwise) even if they're wrong and they drag you down with them? Sounds fair to me....
Regulas314: I agree, this episode was horrible, I wanted Benson to fire Rigby regardless of whether he cleaned the room or not, he's proven now that all he'll ever be is a whiny screechy crybaby who always searches for the easy way out! Benson was right, if Mordecai keeps hanging out with Rigby it'll only lead to him getting into even worse trouble! Mordecai should really tell Rigby he's either gonna leave him or die young as was revealed in "House Rules" because at this point Rigby's just an irredeemable whiny baby Jerkass and officially The Scrappy of the series.
FromtheWordsofBR: Fourthed (is that even a word?). Rigby's behavior in this episode makes Muscle Man's temper tantrums look calm in comparison.
IAmATropist: Fifthed. This episode completely ruined a character whom I usually find funny (Rigby).
Animeking1108: Temp Check, which is another horrendous example of Benson's Flanderization. When Mordecai and Rigby finish mowing a field for a Frisbee tournament, Benson makes them get back to work because the length was a centimeter off. When Rigby justifiably complained about this, he just smugly tells him "What's that? Is that the sound of somebody who wants to be fired?" Then at the end of the episode, when Rigby got his impersonator arrested, Benson punishes him with toilet cleaning duty for six months. The writers want us to hateRigby for his laziness, but all this happened because Benson was being incredibly unfair in the first place.
Rem Tar 85: To me the biggest DMOS in the show's history is the episode Do Me a Solid, where Mordecai asks Rigby to do him a "solid" (pretty much a favor) by accompanying him on a double date with Margaret and Eileen. To sweeten the deal, Mordecai offers Rigby ten solids in return. Rigby accepts, and what does he do? During the double date, he uses his solids to humiliate, demean and embarrass Mordecai, all to ruin his chances with Margaret. We never find out what the final solid is, but it's something apparently so disgusting that Mordecai refuses doing it, causing one of the typical world-ending cataclysms seen almost daily in the park, requiring Mordecai to do the embarrassing, disgusting solid in front of everybody, including Margaret. To add insult to injury, the whole thing is taped, and Rigby and the others at the park (minus Benson) are still laughing over it while watching it the next day. The lowest point comes when Mordecai rightfully wants to end the friendship with Rigby, but decides that Rigby should be forgiven when Rigby casually breaks the tape of Mordecai's humiliation. So what if he broke the tape? Everybody saw it and knows what he did, breaking the tape changes nothing! This episode was the point that cemented Rigby as an irredeemable, selfish, manipulative bastard with no good qualities who is as bad and probably worse than the villains the characters often face, and I cannot comprehend why anyone would like him after watching this episode.
heartauthor: My original Regular Show DMOS was "Think Positive," but then I remembered "See You There," a really bad episode that cemented my hatred for the show's other Scrappy: Muscle Man. The episode is about Mordecai and Rigby being the only ones who aren't invited to Hi-Five Ghost's birthday party; Muscle Man even says to their faces that they aren't invited. Mordecai and Rigby try multiple times to appease Muscle Man, even giving him their game system, but are rejected each time. The two end up sneaking into the party with the help of HFG's brother, disguised as ghosts (it's a costume party), and through a series of elaborate events, end up giving Muscle Man a heart attack. Hi-Five Ghost starts screaming at Mordecai and Rigby that they killed his best friend, and Mordecai and Rigby are horrified by what they did... only for Muscle Man to wake up and reveal that the whole thing, even the party... was one big prank. And the motivation for the whole thing? Muscle Man wanted revenge for Mordecai and Rigby splashing soda in his face... while Mordecai was saving Rigby from choking, during which Muscle Man only sat by, cackling as he essentiallywatched Rigby die. What? Not only is that the most petty reason for revenge this troper has ever heard, but it pretty much confirmed that Muscle Man is an Ungrateful Bastard that has no problem faking a serious injury just to get back at someone for splashing soda in his face.
Candycane14: The episode "The Heart of a Stuntman" had a terrible writing plot device. The main cast were making a party and celebrating a birthday of a turning ten year old human boy name Timmy. There's nothing wrong with that idea alone, for part of the plot, but then we're shown a flashback of baby Timmy's first birthday at the park, there was Muscle Man, Mordecai, Rigby...wait a minute! Mordecai and Rigby weren't at the park for that long! Just around a year or two, not a decade! And guess what?! The human kid is Benson's nephew! We saw Benson's family-twice! And we've never seen a human nephew!...of course Timmy may have just called Benson 'Uncle Benson' as a cute nickname...but what annoyed me in this episode was how everybody was like, 'We love Timmy! Timmy's Great!' and how Mordecai, Rigby and the others kept getting themselves killed in a Stuntman class over a character who 'although never been mentioned before, all this time, and will probably never be mentioned again, is really wonderful and very important to us, this episode!'....They gave new meaning to "jumping the shark"...They jumped the cake...ug, if they ever show that kid again, I hope they at least explain he has fast aging growth or whatever...
