Dethroning Moment / Western Animation

Go To

"It's craptacular."'
Bart Simpson summing this trope up, The Simpsons

Whether it be a joke that went too far, or a moment where a character was Flanderized to unacceptable levels, or an episode is a bit too Off-Model to be tolerable, there are some moments in Western Animation that probably shouldn't have aired on TV.

Note that this section is for short-form western animation. If you're looking for animated films, you may want to go this way.


Keep in mind:

  • Sign your entries.
  • One moment per work to a troper. If multiple entries are signed to the same troper the more recent one will be cut.
  • Moments only, no "just everything he said," or "This entire show," or "This entire series" entries.
  • No contesting entries. This is subjective and the entry is their opinion.
  • No natter. As above, anything contesting an entry will be cut, and anything that's just contributing more can be made its own entry.
  • Explain why it's a Dethroning Moment of Suck.
  • No Real Life examples, including Executive Meddling. It only invites a flame war.
  • No ALLCAPS, no bold, and no italics unless it's the title of a work. We are not yelling the DMoSs out loud.
