* "Subverting Expectations!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]One of the most frequent defenses of the film was that the multiple plot twists (which some saw as a ShockingSwerve including Snoke's death) were deliberately done to subvert viewer expectations. Ever since then "subverting expectations" has become a mocking meme brought up whenever a creator tries to justify plot twists in this manner, such as the ''Series/GameOfThrones'' creators said they had Arya kill the Night King as having Jon do it would be too predictable.[[/labelnote]]

[[labelnote:Explanation]] A nickname among many that detractors of the film have given to Admiral Holdo, who's purple hair and condescending attitude toward Poe was assumed to be the creators' attempts of forcing in a StrawFeminist character.[[/labelnote]]

Despite the various flaws within that research (namely that it was analyzing negative tweets to Rian Johnson rather than the film itself) fans of the movie quickly latch on to this claim to explain the [[CriticalDissonance low Audience Score on Rotten Tomato in contrast to the Critics' score]].[[/labelnote]]

* Throne room sex meta.[[note]]A Reylo fan on Tumblr made an analysis post (that has since been deleted, although reblogs and images of it still exist) claiming that Rey and Kylo's fight against the Praetorian Guards is a metaphor for Rey's sexual awakening. Due to the level of stretching it comes off as and since neither Reylo or the movie are particularly well-liked by most ''Star Wars'' fans on Tumblr, this has been subject to SnarkBait.[[/note]]
