* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The anime sountracks include some examples, several of which seem like deliberate homages.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjVmU8y4SiY "Tokkou Yarou"]] is incredibly similar to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyz_2DEah4o the theme]] from ''Series/TheATeam''. The title is actually "Tokkou Yarou?" / 「特攻野郎?」(yes, with question mark) which means something along the lines of "Gung-ho guys". Lampshaded with a ThemeTuneCameo as a cellphone ring tone and someone says it's sounds like an old American TV show (which indeed was called ''[[https://danbooru.donmai.us/wiki_pages/25421 Tokkou Yarou A-Chiimu]]'' when broadcast in Japan).
** The ending song of ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1whm9gc0hmk "Kimi Ni Fuku Kaze"]] sounds VERY similar to Music/{{Santana}} and Music/MichelleBranch's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKLnmMacEB4 "The Game of Love."]]
** "Tokku Yarou" is also used in ''Fumoffu'' for the next episode preview. ''The Second Raid'' switches it out for "[[https://youtu.be/rFYyQ0J86p8 Shissou]]", a piece suspiciously similar to [[https://youtu.be/l8syGlAMTKA the theme]] from ''Series/{{Airwolf}}''.

** Mr. Gates (aka Mister Kallium), Gauron's successor and head of Amalgam's Execution Squad, is [[AxCrazy even crazier]] than his predecessor. In his first appearance, he shoves a man out of a helicopter for questioning his predictions about how a battle may have progressed, has all his former allies slaughtered, then has a FreakOut and kills the men who did it. He later tries to ambush the heroes and kill them, using an attack in a public place as a way to draw them out. He's a truly warped sexual predator as well; he's heavily implied to be taking advantage of teenage girls Yu Fan and Yu Lan, admits to being [[ILoveTheDead a necrophiliac,]] and is seen masturbating to images of kittens and squirrels. A spectacularly BadBoss, he drowns one of his men in a pool for bringing him bad news. In the Season 2 finale, after Leonard Tesstarossa has killed one of the twins, Gates uses her corpse as part of a puppet show to taunt the surviving twin, whom he then murders, before making his final assault on Mithril.

** Kaname is one of the more violent {{Tsundere}}s out there; is her aggression justified with how outright dangerous Sousuke can be in mundane situations, or does it make her obnoxious?

* HarsherInHindsight: Chris Patton and Mike Kleinhenz played ex-COSMOS child soldier Yu Ominae and Fatman in the Spriggan OVA. Here they play Sousuke and Kalinin. [[spoiler:It becomes more painful that Sousuke finds out that Kalinin has gone rogue and has to face that fact that he needed to fight him.]]

** Tessa and Kaname even share some Les Yay moments occasionally, despite being rivals for Sousuke's affections.

* TheScrappy: Leonard Tessarossa. Sure, he was made out to be a (relatively) "honorable," NobleDemon whose intentions, [[KnightTemplar extreme as they may be]], could be considered grander and more for the greater good than anything {{So|ciopathicHero}}usuke [[TheStoic would care for]]. However, his cockiness and InsufferableGenius, along with his superiority complex have earned him great ire among fandom. He ''especially'' gets flak after manhandling Kaname and {{brainwash|ed}}ing her, causing her to become an angsting DamselInDistress. And interestingly enough, being a PrettyBoy seemed to actually work ''against'' him, as numerous people have taken to despising him for being a SissyVillain, calling him "[[FanNickname Leotard]]". The funniest part is that he's ''supposed'' to be the [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic most sympathetic]] villain that the series has (seeing how Gauron and Gates are [[AxCrazy psychotic]], insane pedophiles), yet he appears to be the most hated.

** Tessa gets this to an extent, as fans are split between loving her for being an adorable klutz with some great moments of badass, and hating the inappropriate, borderline-stalkerish way she persues Sosuke.
*** ''The Second Raid'' only made things worse; the storyline kicks off with Tessa ending Sosuke's bodyguard mission, denying him permission to explain or say goodbye to his friends, and then reaming him out in a debriefing, seemingly entirely because of her jealousy towards Kaname and frustration at Sosuke's lack of response -- all of which leads to Sosuke suffering a HeroicBSOD and subsequently deserting Mithril briefly.

Eventually Tessa sees reason and improves, but some fans have a hard time letting this one go.
