YMMV / Detentionaire

  • Alternate Character Interpretation:
    • Is Lee a jerk who only cares for his friends or is he paranoid?
    • Is the Serpent an irredeemable predator note  or is he a product of his traumatic upbringing?
  • Base-Breaking Character: Holger. Some find him funny. Some not so much.
  • Cargo Ship: The Serpent's Snake and Biffy's phone.
  • Crack Ship: There are some fairly absurd fans who ship Chaz and Tina. No, really.
    • And then there's that one fanfic writer that came up with the concept of Lee being transgender and Biffy being Trans!Lee's boyfriend.....
      • Said writer also ships Tina and Chaz
    • Lee/Lynch is one of the most popular ships in the fandom.
  • Crossover Shipping: There's a person on DeviantArt that ships Biffy/Duncan. Help yourself: http://www.deviantart.com/art/30-Seconds-In-Hevean/428665940
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Stepak and Cyrus, considering all the fan art of them.
    • More-so for Stepak, since he doesn't have many speaking lines.
    • As a side character that is even more irrelevant than the rest of Detentionaire's varied cast, Emmett receives an inordinate amount of attention despite not having spoken once. Probably because he has such a big heart.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Vice Principal Victoria and The Serpent.
  • Friendly Fandoms: With the American Dragon: Jake Long, Danny Phantom and Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja fandoms.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Following the discovery that Lynch is Radcircles... all the moments where he acted like some kind of slightly awkward Genius Ditz with his comments, are suddenly much less funny...
    • Not to mention the overall admiration he showed for Lee from near the end of season 1 onwards...
  • Genius Bonus: Lee has a tattoo of a trigram on his left arm. This particular trigram is "fire", or in the original Chinese, Li.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Season 1's Episode 4 had a picture of Lee picking his nose circulating around the school, courtesy of Jerk Ass Irwin. Come season 2, and Lee befriends (or re-befriends) a girl hypnotized into constantly picking her nose. Then, come season 3; she becomes a recurring character halfway through, and competes with Tina over Lee's affection.
  • Ho Yay: Quite a bit, between Lee and Biff, and Lee and Holger. As of "Misadventures in Babysitting", Cam and Holger have made it to the list.
    • Stepak/Chaz and Tina/Jenny have joined the list.
  • Idiosyncratic Ship Naming: There are some pretty punny ship names on Tumblr.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Barrage, who in the end was just another piece of the puzzle surrounding A. Nigma High, a cyborg who's constantly manipulated by everyone around him, and though he's extremely mean to Lee, not only is he actually a good guy, but he tries to save some of the teenagers - yes, including Lee - on multiple occasions.
  • Lady Mondegreen: Jenny's last name has been interpreted by fandom as "Jerkins" due to her initial introduction. Later episodes and Word of God confirms that it's Jergens.
    • Steve's last name was originally misconstrued as "Carvey" but was later confirmed to be "Carb".
  • One True Pairing: Lee and Tina, there is a minority that ships them with other characters but the majority of the fandom are supporters of Canon.
  • The Scrappy: Brad Von Chilstein. Hard to not to see why, literally none of the fans like him because of him getting in the way of Lee and Tina's romance (but really that was the point of why he's a character) and his ego. Not to mention his Wrong Genre Savvy attitude gets really annoying after a while.
    • Brandy, Kimmie, some people don't like the Glamazons.
    • Barrage, just because of how tyrannical he can be.
    • Mrs. Ping, does anyone really need to explain why? To her credit, she can be nice, but her moments of anger outweigh by far those moments of being nice.
    • Chaz. Just Chaz.
    • The appropriately named Dick Andrews.
    • Jenny Jerkins. She has become the female Brad because she is getting in the way of the romance between Lee and Tina.
  • Ships That Pass in the Night: There are quite a number ships centered around the A. Nigma students (See also Idiosyncratic Ship Naming). And then you bring in The Serpent into the mix...
  • Squick: Jenny and the Serpent to some.
