* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: After having several seasons being traditionally animated, switching to Flash seemed very, VERY wrong.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: After having several five seasons being traditionally animated, switching to Flash in season 6 seemed very, VERY wrong.

Added DiffLines:

** Hacker in "Codename: Icky"; Desiring to steal an energy-hungry slug from Aquari-Yum, Hacker listens in on a new code the Cybersquad creates to secretly track down Icky using Digit's old cookbook as a source for their clues. When he corners them, he boasts of his be able to crack their code due to also having a copy of said book, which you'd think would make the code useless to him when the kids manage to escape his trap. Instead, he ''still'' counts on them using the old code to find Icky, and is easily misled when they lure him with bogus coordinates. Compounding this stupidity is that he acts ''completely shocked'' about this, even though he had bragged about learning their trick to them earlier.


** Proposed solution: Create a SequelSeries for the PeripheryDemographic with the old animators rehired, where the kids are aged up to 16 and 18 and save Cyberspace with calculus, chemistry, and physics![[note]]Cyberchase was this Troper's favorite childhood show, and one reason was because she loved math. But calculus is fucking hard to learn! Who else would watch the shit out of a show like this?[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

*TheWoobie: Delete often crosses into this territory such as when Hacker rejected his bunny themed invention in "The Fairy Borg Father".

Added DiffLines:

** In one episode where Hacker takes control of Radopolis, Matt impulsively agrees to a competition against Hacker where he agrees that if they lose, the Cybersquad must ''never return'' to Cyberspace! He does this over the entire gang's protests and naturally this leads to big trouble when the squad fares poorly in several of the first rounds. Worse still, Hacker makes it a condition that if they lose, ''Inez must become Team Hacker's cheerleader''! It doesn't take long for Matt to realize [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone how badly he screwed up]].

Added DiffLines:

** Hacker's AI when he replaces Motherboard on her main screen in "The Snelfu Snafu"; it's positively NightmareFuel.


Added DiffLines:

** In another episode, Hacker is wrongly accused of taking too much land for himself in Sensible Flats, and the Cybersquad agree to vouch for him in return for the antidote to Motherboard's virus. Unfortunately, nobody stops to realize that Hacker had only given them a small dosage of it, which Hacker brags about to his two lackeys after the crew has already left.
** The auctioneer in "The Snelfu Snafu"; In an egregious case of UngratefulBastard, the citizens of Cyberspace hold an auction for the ''encryptor chip'', the only thing that can rid Motherboard of the virus. Nobody at the time realized that Hacker had sabotaged the chip to replace Motherboard with himself once the chip had been restored to her possession; the citizens of Cyberspace simply had no problem in selling the one thing that can eliminate the threat posed by Hacker. Compounding this is the fact that nobody on the squad inspected the chip to make sure it was safe once they got it back. Suffice to say, the battle is very nearly lost and LaserGuidedKarma kicks for the citizens of Cyberspace in the short time Hacker takes control.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: All the worlds fit in their own cozy niche and feature relatively happy citizens, but are constantly being threatened by Hacker.

to:

* CrapsaccharineWorld: All BrokenBase: Starting with Season 9, the worlds fit in their own cozy niche and feature relatively happy citizens, but show no longer discussing mathematics, focusing on environmental problems. Some fans don't like this change, as the math sections were what made the show unique, though other stated it's not bad, as the show would've either repeat the same issues they tackled before, or go to a harder level of mathematics, which the demographic would get more puzzled (plus, because the kids are constantly being threatened by Hacker.still around elementary/middle school age).


* VillainDecay: After running for so many years and having Hacker defeated so many times by the kids, this eventually was lampshaded heavily into the show that Hacker is now trying to renew his evil image because no one in Cyberspace is afraid of him anymore. Their new plotline involves a humanoid borg named Ledge trying to outsmart him as a villain; Ledge being Hacker's former fan until becoming disillusioned when Hacker dismissed him for his failure.


* CanonSue: Slider actually scores rather high on the [[http://www.springhole.net/writing/marysue.htm Mary Sue Litmus Test]], though he's still a reasonably good character and generally well-received by fans.


* XMeetsY: ''Film/{{Tron}}'' meets ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' meets educational TV.

Granted, this seems to have been the point, and everything turns green and mean quickly.
