These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Tribe
Canon Sue: For some fans Amber became one after her return in Season 3.
Complete Monster: Top Hat threatened KC with being burnt, tried to rape Zandra and finally set the mall on fire, with the mall rats left inside. Oh and this was in the space of two episodes.
Les Yay: May seems to spend a fair bit of time and effort taking care of Salene after she joins the Mallrats, even while she's playing The Mole against the rest of the group...okay, if we ignore the fact that she sought to have her taken out of the picture so that she could be with Pride, she did.
Never Say "Die": of course there are several very strong aversions to this trope, with numerous on-screen deaths and even funerals for even the main characters. But there were also plenty of characters, during the rise of the Chosen and later the Technos, who mysteriously "disappeared"- and it seems pretty obvious that quite a few died (especially Danni).
No Communities Were Harmed: despite the fact that the producers tried to pull out all the stops to do the whole Canada Does Not Exist thing, the obvious New Zealand accents, the vague similarity of the City to real-life Wellington, and the fact that every time they go outside the City, there's invariably an establishing shot of wildlife which... well, clearly isn't British, kind of lets it down somewhat. Also, the tribe which kidnaps Dal and Trudy and attempts to sell them into slavery, has a tent which clearly identifies it as belonging to some community group from Upper Hutt, a satellite city of Wellington.
The Scrappy: Luke in many parts of fandom for breaking up the Jack/Ellie ship, suffering incredible bastardisation even though all canon evidence points towards him being a genuinely nice, remorseful guy.
Strangled by the Red String: Happened a few times due to the show's tendency of not making it clear exactly how much time has passed between certain episodes. Lex and Siva are an example, as are Ved and Cloe.
What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Some themes over the course of the series clearly went beyond the usual parameters of a pre-teen show, like alcoholism, prostitution, rape, starvation, bulimia, or the clash between different political systems like democracy, dictatorships and anarchy. It took almost a season for parents to complain about the series not being suitable when it started running on ABC 3 in Australia, apparently living in a world without adult along with underage sex and teenage pregnancy didn't tip them off. For those wondering the scene that did was Top Hat attempting to rape Zandra which is the second instance of attempted rape for the record (the first being Lex attempting to rape Zandra; he later MARRIED her.
