* ProlongedPrologue: The entire series feels like it's setting up for something greater, but it ends before the candidates make it to pilots and doesn't even properly introduce many characters, which is why a lot of people hated the anime (even when it wasn't edited to Toonami standards and shown on AdultSwim).

** The manga also had similar issues, but at least it tried to explain some of things happening, as well as giving the [[CharacterDevelopment characters some depth]] in the process.

* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Hiead is TheLancer, but he is also a very cold, asocial guy who has no problems with threatening girls. Decidedly not the most heroic of characters, though he does seem to become nicer by the end ([[GeckoEnding but who can say for sure, really?]]).

** Played far straighter in the manga, where Hiead is a straight up asshole from start to finish. Even [[AllLovingHero Zero]] hated his guts!

* FranchiseKiller: While it wasn't a blockbuster, ''Candidate for Goddess'' was actually a fairly popular manga when it was first released, slowly gaining something of a large [[CultClassic cult following]] by subsequent volumes. However, the very poorly-received anime adaptation, plus the over a year long wait between the fourth and fifth volumes of the manga, placed the series in obscurity and its [[CutShort vastly]] [[GeckoEnding unfinished]] [[OrphanedSeries state]] it is today.
