* VanillaProtagonist: Touma from the anime gets flack from most anime fans, due to his two-dimensional {{Shounen}} speeches and rather bland personality, to the point that some even argued that [[CrazyAwesome Accelerator]] ''should'' be the protagonist rather than him. [[PlayedWith On the other hand]], Touma from the novels is a nit more complex as a character, and his motivations as to why [[ChronicHeroSyndrome he does what he does without any reason at all]] are much more explored and even {{deconstructed}} at times than in the anime.

** Index also gets this treatment from most fans of the series, due to her rather abusive behavior towards Touma, exaggerated BigEater tendencies, and overall being a pain in the ass.

** The researchers involved in both events under the ForScience entry above cross this line in a ''big'' way. [[spoiler:Accelerator also crossed the line before he's even ''seen''; however, he seems to be trying to come back from it. [[NeverLiveItDown If you can forgive him...]]]]

* TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: Britain allies with ''China'' and India to take on France and Russia in WorldWarIII. Note, Britain is an ally of France (been one for over 100 years now), China isn't allied with Britain at all, and the fact is that Russia, even in its ''present'' state could [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp]] Britain with barely any trouble, as well as India (who happens to be Russia's primary ''weapon'' importer), and France as well.
* HarsherInHindsight: Academy City's Power Curriculum Program. In theory anyone undergoing this program can become an esper yet there are still people who have yet to gain powers and even those who did never go a higher level which suggest the program has some problems. [[spoiler:However Vol. 22 reveals the program is secretly being undermined by the Higher Ups of Academy City who decide who can and cannot gain esper powers and/or go a higher level based on the type of the powers that person has. This revelation makes it much worse once you realize Level 0's like Saten, the Skill Outs gangs and low level espers like the Level Upper users, who work hard to gain powers/higher levels but never can because their training is being sabotaged as the Higher Ups see no point of helping anyone who doesn't have the powers they want. That's right, the city is responsible of destroying the dreams of many students and leading them into path of cynicism and crime.]]

** Apparently, Accelerator can state-change air into plasma by making ridiculous noises with his mouth, another form of his evil laugh. This is also a case of FormulaicMagic, those noises he was making were Accelerator performing the calculations necessary to use his Vector powers at ''high speeds''... which does nothing to make them ''less'' ridiculous. Things get even more hilariously confusing when it is later revealed that those sounds are in fact a very basic form of the language spoken by Holy beings such as angels, which is why he's able to harness so much extra power whenever he makes them.

* NeverLiveItDown: [[spoiler:No matter how much good he does or how many heroic acts he does, some fans still hate and can never forgive Accelerator for the terrible things that he's done especially what he did to the Sister Clones before his HeelFaceTurn.]]
* TheScrappy: [[spoiler:Shiage Hamazura. There are some reasons some people dislike him. He's not that attractive, he's a Level 0 with no cool powers unlike the rest of the male characters of the series, he's the servant boy and ButtMonkey for Team ITEM. It didn't help that he defeated the fan's favorite villain [[EvilIsSexy Mugino]] and [[{{Yandere}} scarred her]], which brought him a lot of hate from her fans!]]

* TheChrisCarterEffect: A frequent phenomenon among fans. The series has by now introduced [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters so many plot-relevant characters]] with [[AlwaysABiggerFish even more potent powers]] with their own storylines that many people have trouble keeping up even with character charts. Combine this with the fact that the revelations about Imagine Breaker and the way espers work have been minimal so far (and many other less important questions haven't been answered either, but [[KudzuPlot rather just raise new questions]]) and that CharacterDevelopment has been all but non-existent for the majority of characters as of late (including main character Touma), and that the staff seems to be more interested in working on the spin-offs rather than the main story, and you have a giant chaos that has little potential of eventually wrapping itself up completely.

** Accelerator has a ''huge'' fanbase due to how AxCrazy [[CrazyAwesome Awesome]] he is, to the point that a large amount of fan's claim HE should be the main character, not Touma.
* FanficFuel: The sheer size of Academy City, number of unresolved plot threads, and the nature of Esper and Magic powers involving practically every area of physical science and fairy tale imaginable provides ample room for creating OCs and new storylines by eager fans.
