* NarmCharm: Whenever Revy decides to go on one of her philosophical rants. [[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]].]]

* BetterThanCanon: Although it has its detractors as listed under BrokenBase, some people prefer the OVA ending for ''Roberta's Blood Trail'' for giving the Grey Fox unit a [[CurbstompCushion better showing]] against Roberta, [[spoiler: where in the manga, she [[GodModeSue murdered them all with a flintlock rifle without being injured at all]]]], and for its redemptive final scene where she [[spoiler: CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming meets the family of the Japanese man she killed, who forgive her for killing him.]]

** "Sure Hansel and Gretel's backstory is tragic sure , but there's no way in real life people would be fucked enough to make literal Torture Porn videoes of children"...[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Scully well]] (note: seriously the link contains some disturbing content even if it is just TheOtherWiki).

** [[MagnificentBastard Balalaika]] is hot. [[DarkActionGirl Revy]] is [[{{Stripperific}} hot]]. [[KnifeNut Shenhua]] is [[ShesGotLegs hot]]. [[CorruptChurch Eda]] is [[NaughtyNuns hot]]. [[NinjaMaid Roberta]] is [[BoobsOfSteel hot]]. All of the main female characters are, to some degree, evil (as is everybody else in this series). And they are hot.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Yukio Washimine. While she's undeniably a BrokenBird for all the suffering she had to endure as the [[{{Ojou}} heiress to a yakuza clan]], some consider her to be a StrawNihilist who justified her unwilling (or possibly willing) ascension to the clan's leadership]] through [[StrawmanFallacy a flawed interpretation]] of fatalism. She was in fact, given every opportunity to absolve herself of the responsibility, but couldn't see beyond her own choices because she kept putting HonorBeforeReason first. Some people think that her outlook on life makes her character realistically flawed but interesting, while others see it as an irritating excuse to sympathize with a {{Wangst}}y teenage girl.

** While the Spanish dub of the anime has a great cast and many terrifying performances, the script itself is wildly inconsistent, going from smart and well-translated to corny and unnatural-sounding (among other things, for mixing ClusterFBomb with GoshDangItToHeck in an awkward way). That the original dialogue often looks like the author is childishly boasting his knowledge of weapons and action film lore doesn't help.

* {{Narm}}: One of the episodes is titled "Rasta Blasta". It's way too ridiculous-sounding to take seriously.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Roberta's VA in the Spanish dub of ''Roberta's Blood Trail''. The decision by distributor Selecta Visión to replace the fan favourite Marta Estrada from the anime series with the universally disliked Eva Bau (while keeping the rest of the original cast) was as badly received as it sounds.
