*** It seems [[https://desuarchive.org/trash/thread/26282331/#q26282487 Neathery is now actively altering previously posted pages in order to fit the narrative that is established much later]] as some people have noticed, which contradicts his statements that the comic is planned and scripted way in advance.


** Walt's and Portia's relationship can be arguably this, as there's very little buildup to it, and on several occasions it comes off as if Portia merely uses Walt as a hired muscle. She even guilt-trips him to take her to attend [[spoiler:Foxworthy's execution, as she thinks (at the time) that he is responsible for her brother's murder.]]

She even guilt-trips him to take her to attend [[spoiler:Foxworthy's execution, as she thinks (at the time) that he is responsible for her brother's murder.]] At times it seemed like she cared ''far'' more about her dead brother than she did about Walt, causing some readers to jokingly comment how [[SiblingIncest there was probably more than just sibling love between them.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Chief of Endtown's police, Grout, was struck by this the hardest during the Pigs arc. Previously, he was shown as ineffective, but well-meaning chief who did what he could to maintain peace. Come the Pigs arc epilogue, and as police realize that some of the Endtown's citizens are practicing cannibalism, Grout immediately assumes the worst and concludes that a majority of citizens are in on it (despite having ''no'' solid proof to back up his fears), and when one of his officers (a pig named Moffat) insists on bringing the perpetrators to justice...he simply claims that "justice has become a poison", and opts to do absolutely ''nothing.'' He essentially told someone whose kind was hunted and butchered for meat to just deal with it.


* AngstAversion: Previously it was a common occurrence on 4chan to see people enter an Endtown thread announcing that they'd just recently discovered the comic and were in the process of binge reading it, after which they would usually come back to give their opinion upon finishing. Over the 2017 period (beginning immediately after [[spoiler: the end of the "Ship Arc" and Holly Hollister's removal from the comic]]) the pattern changed quickly to people announcing binges but not returning to give opinions, followed by newcomer interest in the comic seeming to vanish completely. The subscription rate on the [=GoComics=] site itself also looks to have slowed massively. It would seem that word about [[spoiler:what happens to Holly]] has gotten around...

to:

* AssPull: Due to Marx's reality-warping nature, he tends to pull an [[DeusExMachina instant solution]] from his butt.

* TheChrisCarterEffect: Complaints of this nature suggest this may be part of the reason behind the continuing Patreon exodus. It doesn't help that Aaron Neathery has become somewhat infamous for answering said complaints with "Trust me" or "It'll all make sense later", or that the most recent arc was capped with a ShaggyDogStory ending that was so informationally empty that many have assumed it was just a way for Neathery to rid himself of a character he'd come to dislike.

** The "Pig Arc" is mostly just drawing sighs of exasperated frustration and comments of "Remember when this comic was enjoyable?"

to:

** The "Pig Arc" is Arc". Characters like Jacob and Dottie get derailed into completely different personalities while other characters get killed off one by one. All while Endtown seems to become more cynically bleak and incompetent over solving the pig butcherings. The result mostly just drawing drew sighs of exasperated frustration and comments of "Remember when this comic was enjoyable?"

* EsotericHappyEnding: [[spoiler:Fan-favourite Holly Hollister is PutOnABus by way of electing to stay in a Matrix-esque illusion. It's implied she's going to have a loooong life... living in a literal bubble of denial with a faulty computer pretending (badly) to be her dead husband along with an imaginary child, all this after being the character defined by such things as detesting the way some people live in their own make believe worlds and forcing herself out of her clock tower home and back into reality prior the start of the story for the sake of finding happiness. Yay? More than anything it comes across as the author's half-hearted attempt to be rid of her while also leaving her "happy" enough not to completely disappoint the fans who were hoping for a happy ending for her. Said fans will probably still wait forever for [[TheBusCameBack the bus to come back]]...]]

It doesn't help that they were literally made for each other, [[https://imgur.com/a/tYdxh springing from the same page]]]].

* NotAsYouKnewThem: Several characters have undergone a sudden personality derailment for the purpose of moving the plot, which drew ire from the fans of said characters:
** During the Ship Arc, Holly was turned from a strong-willed survivor capable of moving on from a tragedy into a hysterical, paranoid and incompetent mess, unwilling to let go of the incident that occured before the war.
** Jacob Jackrabbit. Originally introduced as a big-mouthed but ultimately cowardly journalist, during Milk Trial arc he was suddenly changed into an evil, mastermind schemer who orchestrated all the events in order to usurp a position of power, and it was heavily implied that unchanged humans will be heavily oppressed during his regime. And then come Pigs arc, this plot element was abandoned entirely and Jacob is portrayed as well-meaning and conflicted leader of the colony, frustrated with some of the rat enforcers' methods of "maintaining the order".
** Dottie Proctor, an experienced street reporter previously smart enough to work out the plot behind the Milk Trial arc from first principles, is hit hardest by this during the Pig arc, forced into a role that makes her feel more like a strawman caricature of a naive college student activist in order to act as a plot trigger while unaccountably failing to show the slightest interest in the big mystery of the pig disappearances. Her friendship with Walt was also inexplicably severed, and while she previously showed great deal of care and concern for him, during the Pig arc's epilogue [[spoiler:she takes the message he left for her, puts it in a bottle of alcohol and angrily throws it in the water.]]



*** Holly's capability topside. She proved herself surprisingly able during the Rocket caper, including taking monsters in stride, saving Wally's life on at least one occasion and being the first one to lay a fist on Flask, only for the narrative to switch to treating her like she'd never been aboveground, post-war, during the Unity arc and beyond.

** It is implied by [[spoiler:ex-Topsiders]] Jim and Sarah that it's a good thing that there's still greenery around, far away, otherwise the planet would only have about thirty years worth of air left. However, not only does most oxygen come from the ocean, but math indicates that if you eliminated the planet's oxygen production you'd still have hundreds of years of breathable air left, potentially thousands with a reduced post-apocalyptic population.

** "Narrative Red Pills": More or less the 4chan-local fandom's equivalent of DarkerAndEdgier, used to point out occasions on which author has obviously taken something that was originally meant to be light-hearted and tried to make it serious, often just resulting in {{Narm}} or worsening the DarknessInducedAudienceApathy. Derived from the author himself using the term to promise some manner of dark revelations regarding the true nature of certain things once the story returned to Endtown, not too far in time from the similarly dark and very sudden alterations to Holly Hollister's character arc, which were treated with no small amount of skepticism and derision in certain corners of the fanbase.
** "Tuesday/Thursday Details": Used to refer to the increasing number of story details that some people feel are being left out of the narrative, with some among them putting it down to the pacing combined with the comic having gone to a three-a-week schedule instead of the old five-a-week schedule, the joke being that missing details are implied to have appeared on a nonexistent comic page that would have been released on a Tuesday or Thursday.

** Aaron Marx. On one hand, he's provided FunnyMoments, at least one MomentOfAwesome, and some interesting new premises. On the other hand, he exhibits several Mary Sue traits, including his [[DeusExMachina sudden appearance]] from AnotherDimension, and [[MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness softens the sci-fi considerably]]. Some readers think he made the comic better than ever; others got ready to leave after too much of him.
** Lately, Kirbee and Holly Hollister, split between fans of either due to the love triangle with Wally. Holly fans tend to find Kirbee bland and forced, Kirbee fans see Holly as a bad person due to [[spoiler:her increasing insanity]]. Aaron Neathery himself seems to love Kirbee and view her as being a ray of hope in the darkness of the strip's setting, while expressing disbelief that anyone could find Holly inspiring, despite the latter character expressing some of the strip's most positive messages and being a shut-in who forced herself to rejoin humanity via sheer willpower.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The "bleak setting" variation. It's gotten so bad by the author's own admission (he wasn't intending to create a "black-comedy version of ''Film/{{Threads}}''", as he refers to it) that he introduced a character partially intended to counteract it, which arguably just made things worse as said character, a gullible, air-headed optimist, emphasized the bleakness by making things seem so bad that only a fool would stay positive.
** The recent "Holly's Flashback" arc. By the midpoint Holly had already been exposed to [[TraumaCongaLine so much trauma]] (not to mention twin incidents that felt like they should have been the climax of the flashback) that fans had become numb to the follow-on traumas and many of them later expressed opinions that the flashback had outstayed its welcome. Then the apocalypse happened again.
