* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: As stated above, Leonard was meant to be a fairly sympathetic villain, with his [[TheWoobie mommy issues]] and his [[WellIntentionedExtremist semi-noble goals]]. It didn't quite work out that way...

* 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 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.

* IdiotPlot: The last 5 episodes of the 1st season of the Anime rely on a hostage situation that is only possible because lots of people who know better decide it is safer to allow a proven Mad Dog killer have access to the bridge of a heavily armed warship than to try to fight him and risk him killing people.
** But--but--it's ''[[AxCrazy Gauron]]'', of all people! ...besides, Tessa seemed well-prepared for it, anyway (replacing the torpedoes on the submarine with duds, for instance).
** They did know better; Tessa herself explictly said that the bridge crew were no match for them (having no military training). If they tried to subdue Gauron OR do nothing, he'd have killed them all and still have control of the ship, with no opposition.

* CompleteMonster: Two of them
** [[TerroristWithoutACause Gauron,]] aka Mister Iron, is [[TheHeavy the main villain]] of the first season of the show. A former mercenary from Hemaljistan (Afghanistan in the light novels) Gauron was the {{archenemy}} of main character, Sosuke Sagara long before the series began. In flashback, we are shown that Gauron was responsible for killing all of Sosuke's comrades in Afghanistan. In the present day Gauron kills a KGB agent he was working for when the man argues with him. He then hijacks an airliner after killing the captain, threatens to murder all the high-school students onboard if the authorities refuse to cooperate, and kidnaps Kaname, whom he has subjected to experiments. When that plan fails, Gauron returns months later, working as a [[NukeEm nuclear arms dealer.]] When Sosuke and his new team try to interfere, Gauron kills all of them except Sosuke gloating the entire time. He later hijacks the entire Tuatha De Danaan submarine, planning, again, to kidnap Kaname, and threatening to sink the entire sub. That's in Season 1. In Season 2, we find out he's the one behind the actions of CreepyTwins [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Yu Fan and Yu Lan,]] whom he sends to kill Kaname as a means of screwing with Sosuke, before blowing himself up in a final attempt at TakingYouWithMe. In all of his appearances, he is incredibly proud of the number of Sosuke's friends he has killed, constantly rubs it in his face, and seems to be trying to push Sosuke into [[DeathSeeker killing him.]] A truly sick individual, Gauron is engaged in a game of psychological warfare with a sixteen year old kid, all because of a warped StalkerWithACrush obsession.
** Gauron's successor and head of Amalgam's Execution Squad, Gates (aka Mister Kallium) is ''[[AxeCrazy completely and utterly off his rocker.]]'' 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 necrophliac,]] 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.
