** On youtube there is a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzu3IT590h4&ab_channel=GregXB3 compilation of cool lines said by Xanatos]], concluding with a picture saying "[[TakeThat Eat your heart out]], [[ComicBook/LexLuthor Lex]]". Guess who Luthor is quoting at one point in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.

* FoeYay: Xanatos basically ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext dresses up as Goliath every night.]]''

** WordOfGod is that the Banshee does have some feelings for Rory/Cu Chullain, and there was a possibility this would have been explored further had the series continued.

* CompleteMonster: For the most part, this series has a well-deserved reputation for sympathetic and three-dimensional villains - [[MagnificentBastard Xanatos]] pets at least as many dogs as he kicks. There are, however, a few unrepentantly horrible ones.

There are, however, a few unrepentantly horrible ones.

* BaseBreaker: Some fans didn't like that [[spoiler:Brooklyn named his son "Nashville". Other fans are fine with it as it fits the American location theme]].

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: An all-adult cast, serious explorations on issues like prejudice and genocide from the first episode, a VerySpecialEpisode about the consequences of gun usage (which isn't painted in black-and-white like other Aesops), ''loads'' of Shakespeare references, and to top it off a villain who will [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds have you divided on whether you should hate her or not]]. Not something you'd really see in most Disney animation, much less Disney television (which does explain why Disney screwed it over. Something that deep, dark, action-packed, and intellectual doesn't fit into the cutesy, light-heartedness of Disney. Look what happened to ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'').

* WhatAnIdiot: Oh, so many that it could have its own page. Let's start at the beginning. Yes, people of Castle Wyvern, treat the gargoyles -- half of your fighting force -- like crap and act like [[UngratefulBastard Ungrateful Bastards]] after they save you from the Vikings. Surely this won't cause problems later on when you need them the most.[[note]]A stupid decision, but one remniscient of several incidents in actual history. Almost every class-based revolution starts from very similar seeds.[[/note]]

* EvilIsSexy: Demona, [[AxCrazy Hyena]], [[CuteGhostGirl The Banshee]], [[HotWitch The Weird Sisters]] (at least while Seline/Fury is in control), [[EveryoneLovesBlondes Robyn Canmore]], [[PerkyGoth Shari]], and [[ActionGirl Fox]] [[spoiler: at least until her HeelFaceTurn]], all qualify in spades for this. [[DracoInLeatherPants Xanatos]] easily counts as well, as does [[EvilTwin Thailog.]]

** Macbeth is based on the historical Macbeth, not the [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespearean]] [[{{Theatre/Macbeth}} one.]] This is off-handedly referenced in the comic, when he and Arthur commiserate on historical accuracy.

** In "Walkabout," Anastasia Reynard, voiced by [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Kate Mulgrew,]] remarks that they don't know enough about hive mind artificial intelligence. The episode originally premiered before the Borg made their debut on Voyager, where much more about the Borg was revealed then had been known previous.

** In "Deadly Force", Elisa is hit with a bullet which, according to the doctor, gets her in the stomach, collarbone, heart, lung, and spine, in that order. In an episode that otherwise handles its gun control [[AnAesop aesop]] pretty well, the ridiculous trajectory of the bullet is just plain laughable.

* VillainSue: In earlier episodes, Xanatos stopped just a hair's breadth of being one; he's Lex Luthor (amoral corporate genius inventor) crossed with Doctor Doom (power armor and enjoys mixing magic and science), handsomer than both, rich as hell, all of his plans [[XanatosGambit regardless of if you beat him]] go the way he wanted them to in some way, and most importantly, he is completely free of the weaknesses mastermind villains usually have, namely overwhelming ego (he has it, but he never lets it get in the way of anything), petty revenge fetishes ("Revenge is a sucker's game."), insanity (while he's amoral, he is not a sociopath or insane), and idleness (he always makes sure he can take care of himself if his plans fall apart). What's worse is that no matter what happens, it never feels like it was a major setback for him. As time went on, his weaknesses and flaws were found and elaborated on; namely, his standards make him human enough to genuinely love his family - yet his ambition is great enough he often sees that love as a weakness.

* BetterOnDVD: Trust us, it truly is better on DVD. On the first run, season 1 episodes were shown ''once per week''. Season 2 had many reruns and episodes were shown out of order leading to many confusion among fans. And there's those annoying "ToBeContinued" at the end of some episodes...
