** Trixie Tang: In her debut "A Wish Too Far", Trixie runs back to Timmy after everyone else walks offscreen. She tells him that she think it's cool that he stood up for his friends and gives him a kiss on the cheek, before leaving him to go to a party. A few episodes later in "The Boy Who Would Be Queen", we find out that Trixie [[GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak secretly loves boy-oriented things]] and her AlphaBitch behavior is an attempt to hide this. Does she have genuine feelings for Timmy but [[JerkassFacade acts like a jerk]] and represses her love for him because she wants to remain popular? Also, is it possible that she is really a LonelyRichKid and a StepfordSmiler? Granted, all of this was before she was firmly flanderized into a full-time AlphaBitch

** Trixie is depicted as either a GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak or a TomboyWithAGirlyStreak who hides her tomboyish side. Much of her personality is a JerkassFacade. As a teen and/or adult, she'll become more comfortable with letting her more tomboyish side show.

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThatScrappy: Those fans who [[BaseBreakingCharacter dislike Trixie]] for what she did to Timmy in "Class Clown" and "Just the Two of Us!" may find Trixie getting hurt by Timmy in "Beach Bummed!" to be rather satisfying, even if it was unintentional on Timmy's part.


* CatharsisFactor: Even though it was unintentional on Timmy's part, some fans found Trixie getting hurt by Timmy in "Beach Bummed!" to be rather satisfying after what she did to him in the episodes "Class Clown" and "Just the Two of Us!".


** Poof [[SuddenlyVoiced talking]] is just ''creepy'' in every sense of the word. Either because the audience has already gotten used to [[PokemonSpeak him only saying his own name]], or because he suddenly [[VocalDissonance talks with the voice of a grown man]]. [[OffModel The way he's animated]] is also not pretty to look at, especially his [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily teeth]].

** While Tootie has many sympathetic qualities such as having ''[[BabysitterFromHell Vicky]]'' for a [[BigBrotherBully big sister]], truly loves Timmy for who he is, and sharing the [[ASharedSuffering same level]] of [[ButtMonkey humilation as Timmy]]. However, she still has her fair share of detractors (usually Timmy/Trixie shippers) for her StalkerWithACrush tendencies, her [[GenkiGirl hyperactivity]] thanks to {{Flanderization}}, and her obnoxiously squeaky voice. While her obsession with Timmy is meant to be PlayedForLaughs, her actions in the later episodes became more creepy than cute.

** [[AlphaBitch Trixie Tang]], especially her Post-Flanderization self. There are fans who still like her for her tomboyish and nice side and for reasons related to {{Shipping}}, and liked her role in "Wishology", but other fans hate her for her {{Jerkass}} and snobby behavior and for her many KickTheDog moments toward Timmy, She is also hated by Timmy/Tootie Shippers. However, both sides agree that Trixie, like many other characters, was [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter wasted]].

** Smart people are often targeted as well, being portrayed as {{Insufferable|Genius}} and {{Smug|Snake}} if not portrayed as {{Mad Scientist}}s. In one episode, they're so focused on logic, that they don't [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove even understand the concept of love]].

* BadassDecay:
** Jorgen, thanks to {{Flanderization}}. In the first five seasons, he was the fairies' strong and sadistic boss who treats almost everyone else like crap (especially Cosmo and Binky). These traits were downplayed from Season 6 onward, where he became a PluckyComicRelief character who never uses his power in dire times, only his body, while also becoming far less harsh toward the main characters. He also got a bit dumber and sillier as the show went on.

* ToyShip: Several involving Timmy.


** Denzel Crocker, There are fans who hate how loud and annoying he is because of the {{Flanderization}} and overexposure he went through in the last two seasons. However, there are other fans who still love him for being a JerkassWoobie, and a [[LargeHam hamtastic]] villain.



* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Chloe to some extent. Some viewers who didn't like her in her first appearance found her more tolerable from her second appearance and on, where her ParodySue traits are heavily downplayed, making her a regular NiceGirl instead of a "little miss perfect".

** Catman is [[TheOtherDarrin no longer voiced]] by nor the alter ego of Creator/AdamWest... which pretty much kills [[AdamWesting the joke]] stone dead, and with the real Adam West [[AuthorExistenceFailure passing away]], this is most likely the case if Catman makes any future appearances.
** [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jgRU1KZVjYE The show's intro and theme song]] being changed for Season 10 drew a lot of criticism from fans, many feeling that the new song is inferior to the original due to having just two people singing instead of a full chorus and using clips from episodes of the season. Possibly for this reason, [[AuthorsSavingThrow since "Girly Squirrely" the original theme song and intro from Season 9 have returned]]. But it lasted for two episodes as the recent episode, "The Fair Bears", uses the new intro.

* WinBackTheCrowd: {{Downplayed}} with Season 6, despite introducing BaseBreakingCharacter Poof, undid some of the Flanderization in Seasons 4 and 5. For instance, Timmy's parents [[TookALevelInKindness aren't huge jerkasses anymore]] (good examples being the end of "Sooper Poof" and season 8's "Meet the [=OddParents=]").
