** [[MauveShirt Dy]][[BadassNormal lan]], BadassNormal Dylan, the actor who was hired to play one of the Butcher's son [[spoiler:and the Pig Man]], as well as the [[MauveShirt the]] [[GenreSavvy Army]] [[HeroicBystander of]] [[FanOfThePast Roanoke]] the Army of Roanoke (GenreSavvy, FanOfThePast {{heroic bystander}}'s) receive a fanbase of their own despite [[spoiler:only being introduced and killed off in episode 9]].

Added DiffLines:

* FanPreferredCouple: Most fanfiction about the season doesn't feature Shelby paired up with her canon husband Matt. Instead, most of it features her and Audrey surviving the events of the season and getting together. This is mainly due to the fact that they are the reunion of Creator/SarahPaulson and Creator/LilyRabe in the show, whose characters from previous seasons fans already shipped together massively, as well as Audrey being the actress who played Shelby in the InUniverse ShowWithinAShow.

** The Army of Roanoke, a trio of funny, sympathetic teenage fans of the show who are sneaking into Roanoke during the Blood Moon and one of them is played by AHS alumni Taissa Farmiga. They could have been given a lot more screen time and contribute more to the main plot instead of just [[spoiler:being introduced and killed off in episode 9]].

Added DiffLines:

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Cricket is very easy to mistake for a woman due to his androgynous voice, appearance, and name. His CampGay mannerisms don't help.


** This trope is an actual plot point: The first six episodes show us re-enactments of the various ghosts and murderers. The Return to Roanoke show us the actual murderers and ghosts themselves. Some got painted in a heroic light like Edward Mott were revealed to be actually very angry ghosts and specters.

** This trope is an actual plot point: The first six episodes show us re-enactments of the various ghosts and murderers. The Return to Roanoke show shows us the actual murderers killers and ghosts themselves. Some got painted in a heroic light like Edward Mott were spirits themselves, who are revealed to be actually very far more malefic than their fictional counterparts, both physically and emotionally. An example of this is Edward Mott's spirit, initially described as helpful, only to turn out to be a wrathful ghost who roams the tunnels beneath the farmhouse for all eternity, angry ghosts and specters. to be disturbed.


* CompleteMonster: [[WickedWitch Scáthach]], the original and worst Supreme to have mastered witchcraft, is behind centuries of countless disappearances and murders in name of her ReligionOfEvil since before the Salem trials. A descendant of Druids from the British colonies, Scáthach is an avid worshipper of the Old Gods who pledged her alliance to them to avoid her execution at the stake, killing several soldiers and leaving the Native Americans to take the fall for the mass murder. Coming across Thomasin White after she had been exiled by insurgents of [[UsefulNotes/TheLostColonyOfRoanoke Roanoke]] and left to die, Scáthach saved her [[DealWithTheDevil in exchange for her soul]] and corrupted Thomasin into her right-hand woman, TheButcher. After all the rebellious settlers were executed, Scáthach forced the colonists to follow in her religious ways by practicing HumanSacrifice, with [[WouldHurtAChild not even children]] being safe; when a deserter stole from the colony, Scáthach scalped him and watched as Thomasin roasted him alive. Declaring the colonists to be "children in need of discipline" for wanting to stop the bloodshed, Scáthach proposed the idea to perform the ritual of the Blood Moon on the land to [[AndIMustScream enslave their souls for all of eternity]]; after Thomasin poisoned her people, including Thomasin's own son, Scáthach slashed her throat to conclude the massacre. With the Lost Colony slaughtering anyone who comes near Roanoke in brutal ritualistic killings and adding their souls into their ranks as fresh slaves, Scáthach still oversees them to make sure that her sacrifices are carried out. During the events of ''My Roanoke Nightmare'' and ''Return to Roanoke'', Scáthach distorts Matt Miller's mind to turn him into her SexSlave and later influences his sister, Lee Harris, obtaining her soul to make her the new Butcher.

** We only have reenactment Mason to go off of; so it's vague as to how good or bad the person himself actually was.


* IdiotPlot: Every single modern death could have been avoided if at any point either Shelby or Matt had put their foot down and decided to abandon the house.

* IdiotPlot: Every single modern death could have been avoided if at any point either Shelby or Matt had put their foot down and decided to abandon the house. Matt's involvement is hard to determine as it's vague whether is his own stupidity or if it's the Scathach's manipulations; citing an excuse just to go back to his seductress's embrace. Shelby, on the other hand, doesn't know how to read a room or a person's lips. She should've accepted that it was over and moved on.


* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The dramatization portions of ''My Roanoke Nightmare'' have the same special effects and budget as any other season of ''AHS'', which is considerably higher than the sorts of shows it is styled after, making it a very awesome looking documentary in-universe.

** While the ''My Roanoke Nightmare'' portion of the show is severely disliked by fans, the Reenactment counterpart of Prof. Elias Cunningham and Cricket are this, both for amusing LargeHam demeanor. Mama Polk is also amassing a fanbase of her own.

*** [[PluckyComicRelief Rory Monahan]] for being a genuinely NiceGuy and fairly funny (which is all the audience can really ask for since the rest of the Return to Roanoke cast are loathesome AssholeVictims). [[spoiler: A lot of viewers were not happy that he [[SacrificialLamb died first.]]]]

* Fanon: "Chapter 4" features an attractive Uber driver named 'Rhett Snow', and many fans have started to theorize that he could possibly be related to Myrtle Snow of Coven, since in American Horror Story, two characters sharing a last name is almost never coincidental.
