* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The artistic changes done to the character designs in the ''Hallow'' anime, as well as some of the changes of seiyu, were met by unfavourable reviews. It was probably inevitable, as most of the viewers had grown accustomed to the previous anime's designs.

* BrokenBase: The Noah. Either they are a cool group of attractive and creepy badasses that contribute to the series Myth Arc, or a SpotlightStealingSquad that moves the series away from its original premise and their immortality causing them to long overstay their welcome. [[spoiler: Even Skin, who died, is eventually going to be revived.]]

* CartrightCurse: General Cross could be a victim of this. We meet Anita, who was stated to be his lover. She ends up getting killed by an Akuma on the ship to find Cross in Edo. Earlier the night of her death, she shares with lenalee that her mother was in love with Cross, and supported the Order for him. She was also killed by an Akuma before Anita turned 18. Finally, Grave of Maria is questionable. If she was a lover of Cross, then that makes three women who were in relationships with Cross shortly before they were killed.



* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:The Second and Third Exorcist projects.]]
** Cross allowing Akuma to roam free momentarily just to teach Allen a lesson crossed it, especially given it resulted in the death of both Allen's best friend and his sister. Oddly no one called him out on it.

* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Allen may have these feelings toward Cross, to some extent. He learns he is a vessel for The Fourteenth, and that Cross knew the entire time and said nothing -being tasked with finding and watching over the new vessel. Cross is attacked by Apocryphos and disappears. Allen believed his master to be dead. When Apocryphos attempts to merge with Allen, he says that Cross was only using him as a sacrifice to The Fourteenth. Allen says that he is Cross' apprentice, and the thought of merging with the one who killed his master makes him want to puke.

** Everybody in the Order. Allen is trying to help the Third Exorcists but he is stopped by Link for no legit reason. Also, he is imprisoned for not killing Alma even though Alma was nearly dead. Nobody from the Order tries rescuing Allen even though he has not been eating anything. It's sad when the antagonists were the ones who ended up helping the hero. Also, after Link is apparently killed, Allen is blamed for killing Link even though he had almost no strength but the fact he escaped proves everything. Lampshaded too. Lenalee has lots of regrets for what happened but she is not helping at all.

** Everybody in The Upper Members of the Black Order. After Allen is trying helps Alma and Kanda escape, his attempt to help the Third Exorcists but he is stopped by mistaken for an act of betrayel, Link for no legit reason. Also, he is imprisoned for not restraining him under the belief Allen was killing Alma even though Alma was nearly dead. Nobody from the his family. The Upper Members however only care that Allen disobeyed a direct order, lost Black Order tries rescuing assets, and seemingly aided the enemy. The idiot part comes in that if Allen even though truly had done something wrong, his Innocence would have turned him into a Fallen One much like Suman Dark did. The fact he has is a Noah wouldn't change anything as Noah's are still human. Despite his Innocence not been eating anything. It's sad when changing him, meaning he did not betray God, the antagonists were Upper Members still wanted Allen executed. Made worse by the ones who ended up helping the hero. Also, fact that other members have tried to testify on his behalf, only to be threatened with punishment if they do not fall in line. Later, after Link is apparently killed, Allen is blamed for killing Link even though he had almost no strength but the fact he escaped proves everything. Lampshaded too. Lenalee has lots of regrets for what happened but she is not helping at all.

** Eshii. He had [[DragonBall Frieza]] as his seiyuu, beats two badass Exorcists, and forced a third to go all out, has gravity powers, and is a capable fighter. He's also the only Level Three, [[spoiler: That doesn't get reduced to a humiliating state or beaten easily]].

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: In the guidebook Gray Ark, author Katsura Hoshino stated that during the series' first chapters, she instead wanted to write a manga about zombies, believing ''D.Gray-Man'' would not be a success. Later, she thanked all her editors for the series' success.
**The same happened with Yu Kanda. Originally, she saw him as a regular character but his popularity within the cast (he took first place twice) resulted in Hoshino giving her best to write his backstory.

** Allen Walker. Why yes, that [[WideEyedIdealist wide-eyed]] [[ThePollyanna smiling]] [[CheerfulChild boy]] was abandoned by his parents, raised in an abusive circus, watched the only good foster father he'd had die, was cursed by said father after some asshole in a top hat tricked him into bringing him back and then was forced to kill him ''personally'', was then taken in by Cross, who [[TricksterMentor stuck him with all his debts]], has at least once watched close friends die because of aforementioned asshole in a top hat, is constantly stuck with the missions that carry heavy emotional baggage, was [[spoiler:[[UngratefulBastard betrayed by the organization he works for]]]], and then [[TheReveal found out]] [[spoiler:his foster father was crazy and may have never actually loved him, but [[EnemyWithin the soul of the evil 14th Noah]] [[TomatoInTheMirror that was sealed inside him]]]]. Isn't it obvious?

[[spoiler: And it's been revealed as of late that Mana -Allen's foster father, is actually the Millennium Earl, whom Allen hates and wants revenge against, not coming to find yet that he and his foster father are the same person. [[HeroicBSOD Allen may not be happy when he finally does find this out.]]]] Then his mentor was attacked, and supposedly killed, and Allen gets the pleasure of being led to the room by Tim, and seeing his Master's blood everywhere, along with his mask. Then later coming face to face with the one responsible for his Master's attack, and getting to see what happened in the room that night. So now he's lost the second adult figure in his life, far as he knows. Isn't it obvious?


Added DiffLines:

** Things did look up for Allen when he meets his master again in chapter 222. He thinks Cross is just an illusion, but says regardless of that he was glad he got to see him again. After talking, Cross disappears again, and Allen starts to think that he may not have been an illusion after all.
