** Elphelt is everyone's waifu. [[labelnote:explanation]]Elphelt is literally willing to become the wife of anyone on the roster, especially when doing her Instant Kill version of Cupid's Arrow.
** UNGA [[labelnote:explanation]] In the anime FGC, it's not uncommon to refer to large characters with massive normals that they can easily throw out and convert for high damage as "gorillas." In mid 2015, ommentator Jose "Mr. Biscuits" Lopez popularized the word unga (a sound commonly associated with gorillas and cavemen) to refer to Leo, particularly when used by top American player Zidane. Since then, the word has been used in reference to other "gorilla" characters (such as Azrael from sister series BlazBlue), and Zidane himself would be entered as "Unga Bunga" on several occasions.

** [[spoiler: People were a bit more shocked and uncertain about Ramlethal being apparently blown to hamburger durng ''Xrd Revelator'''s story mode, as it was conceivable [=ArcSys=] might just bump her off, but many were also not surprised she was revealed to be fine in the finale.]]

* {{Narm}}: In -Revelator-, TheReveal of [[spoiler: That Man as Sol's best friend Asuka R. Kreuz]] is ruined by [[spoiler: his rather ridiculous, cat-like UnusualEars]]. WTHCostumingDepartment, indeed.

* PortingDisaster: Not a ''disaster'', but the PC version of ''Guilty Gear X2 #Reload'' is very... lacking. Configurating the keyboard/gamepad is a nightmare and it's clear that this is a [=PlayStation=] port because no one even bothered to change the names of the buttons; they're still labeled Triangle, Circle, etc. Hell, there isn't even a "quit" button that actually ''quits the game''; you'll only return to the start menu. To quit you have to use Alt+F4. In short, no one put much effort into this port.

** Xrd's changes to the story mode. Specifically making it basically a long visual novel like ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' (particularly "True Ending" in its Story Mode), but removing all fights. Some don't mind and appreciate the story being separate for those who only care for the fighting. Others really miss the story mode from the old games with the branching paths and occasional fights. Either way, at least there are no fights that are simple there to fill the quota.

** Elphelt Valentine. Not only is she a WhiteSheep concerning the Valentines but she is the only one who was born with emotions. This causes her to become very distressed and trying to find a way out of being a pawn of the Universal Will. [[spoiler: Which she unfortunately fails to do so at the end of the Story Mode, regaining memories that force her into a FaceHeelTurn and attempts to self-destruct as one final act of desperation, and while Sol, Sin, and Ramlethal manage to calm her out of it, she is still taken away by the Universal Will]]. And if her appearance in ''-Revelator-'' is any indication, it will only get worse for her.

It did in fact get worse for her before it got better; [[spoiler: Ariel basically stuck Elphelt into Justice's forehead to serve as a catalyst for Ariel's new "humanity", and spends most of -Revelator-'s Story Mode being terrorized by Ariel. Elphelt was made to witness Ramlethal's (apparent) death, and almost had to watch Sol and Aria get blasted off the face of the Earth]].

** IronWoobie: Axl Low is a charming, funny and positive British guy who was ripped from his time and everyone he knows and cares about by the forces of cosmic beings from another timeline to be a pawn in their conflicts. He wants none of it and just wants to be with his girlfriend Megumi, and seeks out anyone who may know how he can get back home. [[spoiler:And then he finds this person, who tells him he's really ''just a sentient bundle of magical energy, and his girlfriend has probably been wiped from existence along with his timeline because of his own actions'']]. And not only that, [[spoiler:when he finally gets a chance to go home, it comes in a SadisticChoice of abandoning his new friends to their fate. [[HeroicSacrifice Ultimately, he chooses to use his powers to help Sol Badguy over taking the chance to see Megumi again.]]]]

** That Man. He either purposefully and knowingly triggered the events of the series and is not allowing the world to end until his goals are achieved or he is trying to atone for the creation of the Gears and is working with sociopaths like I-No out of necessity. Either way his goals are completely shrouded in mystery.

[[spoiler:''Xrd Revelator'' clears up some points, but it does leave how much he's doing out of a sense of obligation to Sol, Aria, and The Original versus how much is just satisfying his own ego in question.]]



** Speaking of Valentines, the Valentine we see in ''Overture'' would also the fit the bill as she's [[spoiler:a clone of Aria, Sol's [[TheLostLenore Lost Lenore]]. With the Aria = Justice hints given out in both previous games and ''Overture'' itself, you're basically getting a glimpse at what Justice might've looked like underneath that armor]]. Which means that, depending on how you interpret things, [[spoiler:''Justice herself'' may retroactively qualify]].
* FanDisservice: Under normal circumstances, Raven would probably not be considered an ugly man, but his frightening faces and bizarre psycho-sexual mannerisms combined with being a masochistic zombie tends to give this impression.

''Xrd'' doesn't help either, as we can see he ''nearly lacks a torso''.

** Dizzy, being a FriendToAllLivingThings and acting like a DamselInDistress [[PowerIncontinence sometimes]] is paired with a lot of characters as well. The initial pairing is [[MayDecemberRomance Sol/Dizzy]] which is theorized as ParentalIncest, then came the [[DeclarationOfProtection Testament/Dizzy]] ship which is the most obvious match-up. Sadly the Testament/Dizzy shippers [[BrokenBase fell into despair]] upon learning that [[KnightInShiningArmor Ky]]/[[GirlyBruiser Dizzy]] has become official. [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl May/Dizzy]] existed, followed by [[MoeCouplet Bridget/Dizzy]]; there is also [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight Zappa/Dizzy]], [[MemeticMolester I-No/]]Dizzy, [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Millia/Dizzy]], [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Jam/Dizzy]], and [[RoboShip Robo-Ky/Dizzy.]]

** Ky, too, as he is accused of stealing Dizzy away from Testament.

** Ky, too, as he is accused of stealing Dizzy away from Testament. He also recieves his share of hate from Dizzy fans who didn't want her to have a canon love interest.



** ''-Revelator-'' has oddly been slated by some as one to ''StreetFighterV'' in 2016.

** Sol Badguy. We don't know what the intention of the creators was when they released two official fanarts featuring suggestive poses with Dizzy. One has [[SexIsViolence his sword under her breasts]] while [[ClothingDamage her outfit is nearly torn]], while [[http://guilty-gear.wikia.com/wiki/File:Ggxxac_ex_so.png the other one]] features him shirtless while he carries a [[ChainsOfLove chain-bound Dizzy]] [[{{Stripperific}} in her panties.]] Look for it [[http://www.guiltygear.ru/gallery.php here.]] If you believe that Sol is Dizzy's dad, those fanarts count as {{Squick}}.

Added DiffLines:

** Sin was at one point considered one of the most cheap characters to play as in ''Xrd'' because of his absurdly high damage output using his specials, and the only thing holding him back (his food meter) was easily mitigated by keeping his opponent at a long enough range away using his pokes and safely eat. Thankfully, right after EVO 2016 (where a Sin player won, coincidentally), his damage output was nerfed and he's considered a lot more fair now.
