* {{Narm}}:
** Potentially lapses into this whenever Revy decides to go on a philosophical rant. [[spoiler:This is really just meant to show how pathetic and broken she's become as a result of [[DarkAndTroubledPast a very rotten life]]. Her words ring hollow to the viewers because ''she's'' become [[BreakTheCutie hollow]] and is simply justifying her own way of doing things. Rock, naturally, tries to set her straight. Seems to work as she [[CharacterDevelopment eventually stops ranting so much]].]]
** One of the episodes is titled "Rasta Blasta". It's way too ridiculous-sounding to take seriously.
* TheScrappy: Chaka made number one on a poll of "worst characters" in the manga. Yukio was also on this list, though she's more of a BaseBreaker.

** The dub had a bit of a resurgence in popularity [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1zaqgz_my-little-pony-ties-with-black-lagoon_creation when many realized a lot of the voice cast had gone on to be in]] ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. This either makes it HilariousInHindsight or AccidentalNightmareFuel for fans who watched [=MLP:FiM=] ''before'' getting into Black Lagoon.



* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Shane Caxton refuses to give his men order to shoot Roberta when she attacks them. This is supposed to be a magnanimous gesture on his part: Feeling responsible for the death of Garcia's father, he intends to protect the life of another person Garcia cares about. Except this is also ''profoundly, terribly'' stupid. As a military commander, he is responsible for the lives of his men; neglectfully throwing away their lives like that is a legitimate cause for disobedience, if not outright mutiny. Furthermore, if all he wants to do is redeem himself in Garcia's eyes, then he could and should have just give up ''only'' himself. There is no need to involve his men.

* MoralEventHorizon: Anything Chaka does to Yukio Washimine would make him a grade-A asshole, but put it all together and you get this trope: kidapping, beating, stripping, plans to sell her into sex slavery and bragging about doing so to a "real sicko".

* ArcFatigue: The El Baile de la Muerte (a.k.a. Roberta's Blood Trail) arc. It lasted three and a half years and was comprised of so many [[ThePlan plans]] that even fans were getting confused and frustrated at the end. Even the author admitted the arc was dragging. Made worse by the fact that the series went into ''massive'' ScheduleSlip immediately after. There seems to be a consensus amongst fans that the anime adaptation of the arc overall handled it better by cutting and condensing it down quite a bit.

** Averted in the OVA adaptation, where Caxton doesn't do this and permits Grey Fox to defend itself. [[spoiler:This alters the ending a fair bit, reducing Grey Fox's casualties and also crippling Roberta.]]

** Mr. Chang. It speaks volumes that BoisterousBruiser Revy is willing to acknowledge him as more {{Badass}}, admitting to "not being on his level yet." Fans also like him for being reasonable, uber-cool in the face of danger, and for being modeled after Chow Yun-Fat.
