* ContemptibleCover: The cover of New Testament 9, widely considered one of the best volumes in the series, has nothing but a picture of Othinus wearing the equivalent of ChainmailBikini.

*** Another (albeit related) point of contention about Touma is just how much of a character he is, or whether he is a character at all and not just a [[CharactersAsDevice plot device]]. Some people have noted that even though he always saves the day, he rarely if ever has actually any personal relation to the problem at hand, and that the conflict could have been handily solved by any other sufficiently strong character that just happened to come along, and have argued that this makes him something of a SatelliteCharacter in his own series. Said people are also somewhat divided whether this makes him a BlackHoleSue or not.

** Aleister: Is he nothing more than a giant {{jerkass}} who loves nothing more than [[GambitPileup piling up one evil scheme after another]]? Or a WellIntentionedExtremist with ulterior motives? His actions would suggest the former, while his back story leans in the direction of the latter.

* 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 curbstomp]] 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.

** It doesn't help that literally more than of the episodes of ''Railgun'' are anime-original, created because the director wanted more moe elements in the show and to force in happy resolutions that didn't exist in the manga.

* BoringInvincibleHero: Touma almost never loses a fight, and even on the rare occasions where a more trained hand-to-hand combatant beats him up, he still always lectures the bad guy about why their ideals are wrong.
