** 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 seem to have a SingleTargetSexuality for Boyle, is the one who has the LoveInterest options instead of Boyle himself, who doesn't want to have anything to do with her and needs an ActOfTrueLove to be free from Ingrid's curse.

* 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 are optional, and the characters involved in the pair tend to have a better-defined relationship with someone else.

This trope is deliberately invoked by Amanda, who didn't want to have a cliched pairing match-ups for her main couples.

* 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 [[TheChosenOne 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.
** The fourth installment, of course, seeks to break the formula by having a retired villain in his very late 20s ([[YoungerThanTheyLook despite his looks]], that's what his profile says) as the protagonist who is forced to become an unlikely hero after losing his dog to the mist queen (hence the subtitle ''Shadow of the Mist'').

** 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 suddenly show 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.

** Te'ijal, an OptionalPartyMember from ''Aveyond 1''. She's so popular that got a cameo in ''Aveyond 2'', and was [[AscendedExtra promoted]] to a central character in ''Aveyond 3''.
** The daevas in the first Aveyond game were really nothing more than EliteMook bosses, who gets about 1-2 lines before being defeated by the heroes. The Amaranthian website has spawned a lot of fanfics where they are given more depth.

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