* BaseBreakingCharacter: The Regan family, mainly Neil and Eliza and their HateSink status. Some viewers find them to be LoveToHate characters and good antagonists for the series while others just flat out ''despise'' them in a way they can't even have fun with, as they feel like their [[StaticCharacter perpetually two-dimensional portrayal]] and constant [[BreakTheCutie cruel bullying of Candy]] drags the show down. And while no one can deny that they're unlikable characters, a few might find them almost UnintentionallySympathetc due to being the products of a spoiling, enabling upbringing by their mother who yet get positioned as being almost UltimateEvil within the story despite being little more than bratty children.

* AngstAversion: More than one watcher/reader ended up getting tired of all the relentless, neverending, borderline ridiculous melodrama surrounding Candy's life and, as a consequence, dropped the series.

** Candy's SweetPollyOliver moment where she dresses as a boy and (even ''flirting with'') Eliza before declining a dance with her, much to her confusion.

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff French and Latin-Americans LOVE Candy Candy]]: VERY popular in Latin America, and in France where it was the very first shojo ever seen.
** [[PeripheryDemographic Also is a girls show that Latin American boys were more than willing to watch.]]

** A similar moment occurs at a later dinner party at the Regan Manor - as Candy walks to take her seat at the table, Neil sticks out his foot in an attempt to trip her...and she steps on his foot instead, making ''him'' make a comically pained face while she just walks on past him.

*** Eliza and Neil had their moments of this early on, being the products of a toxic, spoiling, and enabling upbringing by their mother that turned them into bratty children with no understanding of how to socialize with anyone outside their class, but this ultimately fizzled out in favor of keeping them straight-up Jerkasses instead. Neil [[BaitTheDog seemed to be becoming one again]] when he discovered he had feelings for Candy, [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk but NOPE]], he's still a raging asshole.

* MisaimedFandom: Considering that ''Candy Candy'' is a {{shoujo}} manga from TheSeventies, it had [[FairForItsDay pretty revolutionary]] 'messages': "Be honest to yourself", "Don't throw away your own beliefs", "Work hard to earn what you get in life", "Don't give up on your purposes", "Romance is important, yes, but not the end and be all to a woman's life". The fandom, however, ignores almost all of them '''only''' to focus on the romantic part of the plot, and '''''specially''''' on loudly complaining because Candy and Terry didn't end up together. Even older fans in their 30's and 40's, who should know better, fall into this trap.

* ValuesResonance: A shoujo manga from TheSeventies that isn't necessarily centered ONLY on romance '''and''' tells young girls that they can be whatever they want to be in life, as long as they work hard for it? HELL YES!
