** A faceless Castor Troy is pretty unsettling to see. Mercifully, we see it very little.

* IdiotPlot: So, in lieu of traditional police investigation and interrogation methods to find where the bomb is, the police have one of their own undergo a highly experimental, and almost certainly illegal, face transplant with a comatose criminal, then drop him into prison with the criminal's brother to get him to spill the beans. Then no one thinks to leave any sort of guard or restraints on the comatose criminal, allowing him to wake up, call his gang, and have them kidnap the people who performed the surgery and do it to him too. And all of this is entirely off the books with no records and only a handful of witnesses, so once they're dead there's (almost) no way to prove it happened. But, then again, if you're watching this movie, it isn't gonna be for the story.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: After capturing the Troys, Archer is seen by his associates as a bitter JerkAss for refusing a celebratory champagne and instead [[TheDeadHaveNames naming the agents]] who were killed in the operation, despite it being a very thoughtful and decidedly not-sociopathic way to react.

Added DiffLines:

* HoYay: There is some context between Archer and his BlackBestFriend, Tito. [[spoiler:When the latter is killed by Castor after getting his face, Archer is quite mournful of his loss]].


* BaseBreaker: Viewers have very mixed opinions on Alana from the third season.
** This hasn't changed since her return in season 5.
** Miranda and Laney are also breaking the base in season 5.
*** Miranda hasn't gotten over her self-esteem issues since season 2, but has returned as a much more talented artist than before. Unfortunately this means she is (or is edited to look like) she's constantly whining, doubting herself, and taking up other artist's time asking if her sculpture looks good enough, even though as of episode 8, she's won half the challenges and really shouldn't need this much assurance.
*** Some fans don't like Laney because she's very monotone and deadpan in her delivery, and has frequently been a top look for what some fans consider to be mediocre work. [[spoiler:The fact that she's the only newcomer left standing and then quit the competition anyway also broke the fandom in half]].
** Season 7's Sasha. Her getting the special immunity did not help matters. She was in the bottom 3 weeks in a row. The next week, she won a challenge, which many feel should have been granted to Cig. Many also think she deserved to go home instead of Rachel the next episode. She finally got the boot in the Greek Gods challenge, finishing the show in 6th place.
** Robert from season 10 is either hilarious or annoying for his antic. The fact that a lot of people thought that his contribution to the parasitic alien challenge is worse than Katie's who was eliminated in that episode and that he was in bottom look for ''five'' weeks [[spoiler:before being eliminated at 6th place]] doesn't help.

** Hoo boy, Miranda. Again. Even though she's a BaseBreaker and TheScrappy to most viewers, the judges LOVED her work in season 5. Which, usually, was incredibly stunning, but there was often a look fans felt deserved top looks more. Her sculpts were very intricate and well done, but she often only sculpted one or two pieces, a move that would get other contestants in a ''lot'' of trouble, if not eliminated for not doing enough work.

* TheScrappy: Jerry, Joe, a few others depending on who you ask.
** Miranda, if the ''Face Off'' Reddit is to be believed.



* {{Uncanny Valley}}: Some of the less successful make ups for "Switched & Hitched", "Triple Threat" and "Covert Characters" could be considered this.

** Even Better: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lgin11TH6g "DDDDIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!"]] Especially as it's quite on the nose to the audience, given the length of the climax.


Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lgin11TH6g "DDDDIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!"]] Yes, it's hilarious, but after the hell Caster put Archer and his family through, it's a ''very'' cathartic moment.

** The aforementioned scene of Troy grabbing a teenage girl's backside while dressed as a priest makes for uncomfortable watching after decades of clerical abuse scandals.
