* SpiritualLicensee[=/=]WholePlotReference: As noted in the {{WMG}} and [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] sections, ''4'', at times, plays out like an adaptation of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Cortana and Chief's relationship in particular shares a lot of similarities between the relationship of Madoka and Homura.

* TheScrappy / LoveToHate: [[GeneralFailure Del Rio]]. Just Del Rio. Considering how 90% of Halo 4's plot only gets worse because of his mistakes, many fans hated him for making everything worse, or just love to hate him for how ignorant and idiotic the character turned out to be. Bonus points for being explicitly designed for players to hate him, and admit it,[[spoiler:[[TakeThatScrappy You cheered when the UNSC weren't happy when they found out what he did to Master Chief]]. ]]
** Another example would be the Didact, a GenericDoomsdayVillain who indulges in eloquent speech (that might remind you of Gravemind), instead of, you know, killing his enemy. The Chief and the player do not even get the satisfaction of beating him in a boss fight, instead he gets beaten in a QuickTimeEvent. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHDnCyeoQJc WatchMojo]] even described him as the [[Franhise/StarWars General Grievous]] of videogames, in the sense that his origins and motivations are only explored in secondary material but in the main event he comes off as bland and unoriginal.

* BaseBreaker: Sarah Palmer. Her fans love her for being a tough-as-nails leader and being voiced by Creator/JenniferHale. Her haters dislike her for constantly being rude to Halsey (or seemingly ''everybody'') and say she's a FauxActionGirl, since until Episode 7 she wasn't seen in a fight. Then when she ''was'' seen in a fight, complaints arose about her being overpowered due to her headshotting [[DemonicSpiders Promethean Knights]] with a single pistol shot each.

** Sarah Palmer, though not everyone dislikes her; see BaseBreaker.

* VindicatedByHistory: While ''Halo 4'' was well received on launch, with the campaign in particular being praised for the emotional bond between John and Cortana, the technical side of things was more derided, with multiplayer and Spartan Ops in particular being seen as a weak first effort. However, ''Guardians'' has caused many fans to look back on ''4'' with a much more favourable light than before, in particular when it came to the campaign.

* GrowingTheBeard: The Spartan Ops were created to bridge the gap between the story of campaign and the action of multiplayer. Unfortunately, critics were quick to point out that it was too sparse and [[SlowPacedBeginning slow for the story-focused players]], while too story heavy for the gameplay-focused players, pleasing neither. However, as the season progresses the production value and story pacing have gradually gotten more interesting and enjoyable, partly because 343 Industries had more resources to devote to them after the game was released and partly out of them learning what worked and what did not and playing to their strengths.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: This may pull a few heartstrings but Cortana's rampancy is very similar to an actual human condition. Cortana's processors are eating themselves up until there's nothing left, while her closest friend seeks a solution that may or may not work. Essentially, Cortana has cancer for A.I. Or Alzheimers.

In fact, one of the writers wrote the game while his mother was suffering from dementia.

* AlasPoorScrappy: [[spoiler: Paul Demarco's ]] death in ''ComicBook/HaloEscalation'' was greeted by shock and sadness by the Halo community, many of whom hated him in Spartan Ops.
