** In ''Aveyond 4'', fans were quite baffled that the Hi'beru and Phye were even included as Ingrid's potential {{Love Interest}}s, because 1) Phye was only introduced in the last portion of the game and barely spoke to Ingrid at all, and 2) Hi'beru had a much more meaningful interaction with Rowen. Not to mention, it seems odd that ''Ingrid'', who is shown to be hell-bent after Boyle, is the one who has the LoveInterest options instead of Boyle, who doesn't want to have anything to do with her and needs AnActOfTrueLove to be free from Ingrid's curse.

Basically, the whole thing felt like a shoehorned attempt to reuse the Attraction Point system, even though it doesn't make much sense.

* StrangledByTheRedString: The lack of chemistry between the characters is the reason why most of the Canon couples are so unpopular (see FanPreferredCouple above). Most of the "romantic" interactions between the LoveInterest is optional, and the characters involved in the pair tend to have a better-defined relationship with someone else.

** In ''Aveyond 1'', Rhen's canon love interest is Dameon, but aside from the briefly flirting with her when they first met, he rarely says or does anything important throughout the whole journey. In fact, an earlier build actually allows the party to avoid recruiting him altogether (although he would randomly pop up in the FinalBoss battle anyway). In any case, many players complain that Rhen falling in love with him [[spoiler:that she would be tempted to join the dark side alongside him]] feel very forced. Lars, despite being introduced as a {{Jerkass}}, frequently gives Rhen useful advice throughout her quest, shows concern when she attempts to do anything dangerous, and was overall given the most CharacterDevelopment ''among the whole cast'' as he becomes a much nicer person and even apologizes to Rhen for his past behaviour.

* ClicheStorm: One of the reasons why ''Aveyond'' is a rather obscure series is that their plotlines tend to be rather generic. A young hero is chosen by [[BigGood the Oracle]] to stop a villain who, for unexplained reasons, wants to TakeOverTheWorld. They meet some useful allies here and there, and fights the BigBad's minions to collect some {{Plot Coupon}}s. And that's about it, really.

** In ''Ahriman's Prophecy'', Devin takes the role of Talia's childhood friend and protector, and the two has the typical role of the male & female RPG protagonists. They are the only two characters who are actually relevant to the conflict, with all the other playable characters being an OptionalPartyMember, including Devin's eventual canon LoveInterest, Alicia. To make things worse, Alicia is a rather difficult character to actually obtain (the player must complete an optional sidequest in Candar, else she would become LostForever), and her stats are not actually very good (compared to Jack and Fredrick), so players have no real reason to recruit her, and the game can be completed without her involvement ''at all''.

** ''Aveyond 3'' follows a similar pattern to [=AP=], where Mel and Edward fill the standard roles of the male & female RPG protagonists, and their dynamics seem to be a perfect setup for a relationship, with Mel's status as a commoner, and Edward's desire to relinquish his royal duties. This is cemented by the fact that, in the third chapter, the "canon" prologue has Edward almost marrying Mel before it was sabotaged by Lydia, implicating that the two ''were'' a couple. But instead, Edward would canonically marry Stella, while Mel has an offscreen romance with someone who doesn't even appear in the game.

* ThatOneLevel: The Halaina dungeon from ''Aveyond 4'' is a major cause of frustration for many players. Not only do you have to slog through the confusing layout of the maze (with no speed boost), you must complete numerous riddles and puzzles that requires you to go back and forth to the same room over and over again. Also, if you accidentally walked into a passage at the wrong time, you'd be given a lengthy dialogue event before being sent back to the previous room. It's particularly frustrating since this is a part of the game's main quest. It gets so bad that someone had to make an individual walkthrough for this specific level.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker: A bug in the initial release of ''Aveyond 3: Orbs of Magic'' allows the player to use the Death Scroll on [[BigBad Gyendal]], instantly killing him. This was quickly rectified by giving Gyendal the standard ContractualBossImmunity to the spell.

** In ''Aveyond 4'', Ingrid can marry either Boyle, Hi'beru or Phye. Fans are quite baffled that the latter 2 were even an option, because 1) Phye was only introduced in the last portion of the game and barely spoke to Ingrid at all, and 2) Hi'beru had a much more meaningful interaction with Rowen.
