[https://decider.com/2015/03/10/daria-is-a-jerk/ A 2015 Decider column by Tyler Coates] wrote that "as someone who felt like an outsider and whose only retaliation was to hope that high school would wrap up swiftly — while also holding contempt for the athletic, popular kids who made this nerd’s adolescence a living hell — Daria was a role model". When rewatching the show as an adult, he wrote that it "holds up as a hilarious, thoughtful sitcom" but he was struck that Daria "is a real asshole". This caused him to wonder if he himself had been "just as much of a jerk to the kids I went to school with as they were to me", and if Daria also rethinks her high school years as an adult and tries to be more "more amiable and patient with people not like her" as he's tried to be.

The characters are still known well enough that [[Crossover#Drawn Together|''Drawn Together'', ''Robot Chicken'', and ''Family Guy'' could cameo Daria]] at different times in the 2010s (albeit not nicely in two cases), and that ''Jezebel'' magazine could run an [http://jezebel.com/5550875/an-open-letter-to-heidi-montag-from-quinn-morgendorffer?skyline=true&s=i open letter from "Quinn"] as an article in May 2010. Following the DVD release, Watsky & The GetBand would go on to use Daria as the setpiece for [[A Love Story]]'s music video, complete with some commentary from Daria; internet reviewer The Nostalgia Chick would compare ''Daria'' to the 90s film ''She's All That'' in [http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/team-nchick/nostalgia-chick/32202-shes-all-that a review of the latter], with ''Daria'' episode "[[Through A Lens Darkly]]" held up as better.

Talking to ''Vice'' for an oral history, Eichler opined that "The minute Daria showed any vulnerability, some people declared that she jumped the shark", and referenced a lot of fans disliking her having a boyfriend. "Daria was echoing a place a lot of the viewers were in emotionally, but some of them just didn't keep going with her."
