Dan has a tendency to develop a character
over a course of several seasons, only to completely throw said development out the window
for a cheap laugh, which often isn't that funny to begin with. Many characters suffer Flanderization
as the series progresses.
He completely ignores it, Rule of Funny
or even just lazy writing completely over-rules any idea of continuity. If there is continuity it's almost always an episode specifically written to be in continuity (like a sequel episode).Will completely Retcon
a character to fit a single episode plot.
Even though he trolls his fandom, he will use the two main types of romantic storyline in his genre, first being the Just Friends
style relationship, and the other being the Belligerent Sexual Tension
style. Admittedly this can lead to confusing shipping agendas and fan wars.
— And how!Comedic Sociopathy
. In spades.
