** Manticore's serious and believable plot about trying to get back their property was replaced with an AncientConspiracy plot that was needlessly vague and obtuse, like [[TheCrisCarterEffect the show wanted to create a mystery but did not know what the mystery was]].

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Ben/X5-493 only appeared in one episode, but proved popular with the fans. And with the writers, so that they decided to bring Creator/JensenAckles back as his clone, albeit with a very different personality.

* JustHereForGodzilla: Many people on forums confess to only watching for Creator/JensenAckles. Unfortunately, this usually means they watch only "Pollo Loco" and Season Two and thus don't appreciate that Season One is also good.

* SecondSeasonDownfall: The show had so many problems with it's second season that even if it wasn't moved to the FridayNightDeathSlot it still probably would have been cancelled.
** 9/11 happened between seasons, and suddenly portraying the government as evil, portraying the police as evil, portraying America as evil could all lead to spectacular backlash. All those aspects had to be toned down, even though they're all necessary in a {{Cyberpunk}} setting.
** Max and Logan admitted their feelings to each other but the writers wanted to keep the dramatic tension, so Max was infected with a virus that kept her and Logan from touching. Instead of the flirty WillTheyOrWontThey of the first season the audience got romantic {{Wangst}}.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: A beat-em-up game was released for the [=PS2=] and Xbox in 2002 after the series was cancelled. While the voice acting is decent, the game is repetitive and has some major problems with its stealth mechanics.

** Most importantly, [[NarmCharm the cheese was gone]], along with the TotallyRadical. No more stories about Max going into heat and having to distract herself, or making enough money to bribe the police, or rescuing her friends from Japanese gangsters. Instead it was all about collecting lost transgenics, which were too serious and low budget to be exciting, and not fun enough to make up for it.

Not that the show wasn't about finding lost transgenics before, the first season was about Max trying to find her family, but she did other stuff as well.

* TheScrappy: Asha was another one of Logan's agents introduced in the second purely to drive a romantic wedge between Max and Logan. That of course pissed off the shippers, meanwhile she had no interesting personality or skills of her own.

** Max and Original Cindy's social lives disappeared along with a large part of their social circle. Instead of hanging out with their friends and dealing with dystopic city life, Max spent all of her time getting Alec and Joshua out of trouble and whining about it. Great for Jensen Ackles fans, bad for everyone else.
