** Amongst Demon Hunters, The Shadow's Mantle set, which gives a twelve-fold damage boost when you equip a melee weapon, gives Shadow Power every rune's effect and makes it last ''forever'', and most of all grants an additional '''40,000%''' multiplier to the first target that the Impale skill's knife hits, easily slicing up bosses into bite-size pieces within seconds and, with the right additional equipment and runes, even large mob groups as well. Hits dealing tens of billions of damage each are not uncommon with this set. Even the Demon Hunter's other [[InfinityPlusOneSword 6-sets]] simply don't compare in terms of damage output. You do lose access to a number of skills that require bows and crossbows if you're making full use of the {{Set Bonus}}es, but who needs them when you're the ultimate KnifeNut?

* FandomRivalry: ''VideoGame/TorchlightII'' and ''Diablo III'' fans were at each other's throats since the moment both games started entering the final steps of development. Runic Games remained, for the most part, silent, but every new Blizzard announcement almost invariably lead to someone mentioning [=TL2=] and triggering a massive FlameWar. Now that both games have been out in the wild for a while, most people on either side will acknowledge the merits of the other, but the two games are just similar yet [[DamnYouMuscleMemory just different]] enough that it's tough to be a fan of both.

** Some animosity developed between ''D3'' fans and ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'' fans around summer of 2017, when ''Diablo III'' got the ''Rise of the Necromancer'' expansion that added only one new class and a few other things for $15, while ''[=PoE=]'' got the ''Fall of Oriath'' expansion that added '''six''' new acts and a bunch of other content, ''for free''.

*** Fire Chains enemies are connected by a fire chain that does nasty damage if you're caught between them. And these enemies often have another quality with them as they only spawn on Nightmare or higher.

* UglyCute: Many of the pets are these, such as the Living Gauntlet who serves as the cutest and friendliest [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Floormaster]] ever, Buddy the hound whose favorite pastime is "Fetch the Skull", and even a "baby' version of the Butcher!

All of which are non-combatants who simply follow you and collect gold for you.

** ''Rise of the Necromancer'' has gotten flak due to costing $15 yet not even having any new areas, Acts, or modes to go with the price tag; only a new class, extra stash tabs, and cosmetic options.[[note]]There are Challenge Rifts and a few new Adventure areas, but they are part of the 2.6.0 patch that is applied to everyone who has the game whether they have ''Necromancer'' or not.[[/note]] To compare, the ''Reaper of Souls'' expansion adds a new game mode and a new Act for $10.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: The campaign is fairly short, even if you increase the difficulty as you play. It took the relatively late addition of Adventure Mode to add real longevity... but since all Adventure Mode consists of is [[FakeLongevity endlessly repeating areas and enemies from Campaign]], it can lead to ItsTheSameNowItSucks.

* AntiClimaxBoss: The eponymous boss himself. Diablo's damage output is honestly pitful, especially in phase one. In phase 2, the clones of your heroes he summons are more deadly than he is, and in phase 3, his most dangerous attack, a giant laser, is slow enough that it is easily dodged. To make matters worse, he will not shut up about how scary he is and how much despair you should be in.

* DisappointingLastLevel: Act IV's Heaven level suffers from most of the same problems regarding ''Diablo II'' 's Hell finale. Heaven however has no town, so Bastion's Keep from the act beforehand is reused.

Heaven however has no town, so Bastion's Keep from the act beforehand is reused. Recitified in ''Reaper of Souls''; Act V uses a new hub and has a decent variety of environments.
