* BrokenBase: The announcement that the sequel is in pre-production. On the one hand, fans are ecstatic that a sequel is finally being greenlit. On the other, several have been enraged that it's taken the company so long, especially after teasing the project for more than a decade with concept art and even in their most successful titles. With so many Assassin titles coming out every year and games like Watch Dogs that are assured successes, it's understandable fans would be miffed that the franchise starring a female character gets put off to the side. The former camp is relieved the game is coming out at all, wait or no wait.
** There is some issue over the rumored Nintendo exclusivity deal, either permanently or temporarily so. Either fans are glad to see it as they plan to buy the Nintendo Switch anyways and/or feel that it may be a case like Videogame/Bayonetta2 where Nintendo helped get the project going or feelannoyed that the long awaited game is locked to a single platform for a long period of time, be it a year or forever.
** There's conflicting opinions over the amount of swearing in the E3 2017 trailer and about the idea of an M-rated Beyond Good and Evil sequel to begin with.
** After being teased a sequel following after the first game featuring Jade and Pey'j, the E3 2017 trailer reveals a sequel that's actually a ''prequel'' focusing on new characters[[note]]Previously released concept art hints at the appearance of Pey'j as a baby.[[/note]] People are either mad because the game isn't following the previous game, especially with the huge cliffhanger it ends on, or they're just glad the sequel still exists at all, even if it is a prequel with new characters.



* {{Narm}}: The trailer for ''Beyond Good And Evil 2'' features a ''lot'' more swearing and sexual innuendos compared to the first game which was relatively clean, which comes off as trying too hard to be DarkerAndEdgier.

* InNameOnly: Many feel that the new prequel game shown at the 2017 E3 looks and feels nothing like the original game despite being supposedly a prequel. For more info, check BrokenBase above.

* {{Woolseyism}}: There's a lot of quirks the English dub added over the original French. Pey'j's "sweet jesus" for example and how the DomZ sound.
** When General Kehck [[spoiler: traps the Beluga with a tractor beam]], in the English version he quotes one of Lewis Carroll's poems (The Spider And The Fly), which made a nice touch over the original (which just talked about a serpent eating its prey).

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Chip Cheezum and General Ironicus' Let's Play of the game jokingly suggests that, as a result of his tendency to [[UseYourHead Use His Head]], Double H was brain-damaged well before he was ever introduced to that nasty-ass machine the [=DomZ=] had him in. They further theorize that he was given a copy of the childrens' edition of Carlson and Peeters (to accommodate his impaired thinking), which is also a coloring book. He colors in one page every night, with just the biggest grin on his retarded face. (In-game, he's [[CloudCuckoolander goofy]], but still intelligent.) Watch him during combat, then watch him again VERY closely while he is breaking barriers for you. You will notice that he uses an energy shield.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: For the game's music, Ubisoft hired a relatively unknown freelance composer named Christophe Heral. Good choice. "Home Sweet Home" and "Hylian Suite" are standout tracks, but there are many good ones. Notably, {{Ubisoft}} gave out the soundtrack for free with express permission to put it on Torrents.

* FandomBerserkButton: No, wrestler TripleH has nothing to do with this game. If you make that mistake, as so many before have, the fan's responses will likely make you feel like a real heel.
