Added DiffLines:

!!Series/Supergirl2015 Fanfic:
* BetterThanItSounds: Two children move to another country. The older child discovers her parents didn't pack enough food because her uncle is a jerkass. She disowns her family as a result.
* IronWoobie: Kara loses her homeworld and gets stranded in an alien world with no supplies or clothes and her baby cousin to look after. She's hunted down by at least two different organizations. She doesn't know anything about that world, its people or their customs. And still she manages to survive and take care of her cousin. Nothing can keep her down permanently.
* UnintentionallySympathetic: The farmer guy [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]] ran into wasn't what you'd consider nice or bright, but he wasn't a jerkass either. Yes, he shot at Kara... because he thought he was being assaulted by a trespasser or a wild animal. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone He was horrified when he saw he had fired at a child]] and he called the authorities right away. And still the story wants us to think the guy had it coming when Jason Connolly breaks his arm and swears to get him permanently watched, and killed and disappeared with no trace if he ever gets his hands on a gun.


!!"Creator/ErinHunter" Novels
* FunnyMoments: Lucky accurately (and sarcastically) describing a former alpha's appearance, a dog named Black Eye. Snap is surprised by this and asks how he knows, so Lucky just mutters "Never mind".
* InternetBackdraft: This series has been controversial among Creator/ErinHunter fans, to say the least.
* MemeticMutation: Adding "dog" to the end of every noun, since the excerpt mentioned "Sun Dog" and "Earth Dog" and "Sky Dogs".
* NightmareFuel: Terror from ''The Broken Path''. He has patches of burnt skin, yellow eyes...''and a missing lower jaw''.
** The broken jaw was because of Storm fighting him to save her friends...and the way she did it...
* TaintedByThePreview: The excerpt has not been well received.
* TearJerker: Mickey finally giving up on his human family in Book 3, hoping that if they ever come back they'll know he waited as long as he could. Even Lucky, who hates humans, starts to change his mind about them when he realizes just how much Mickey loved his family.
