** SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Though in hindsight, comparing it to the insanely brutal and over-the-top "artistic" murders in the 2013 series, eating someones brain might come across as rather quaint today. [[spoiler: As if to drive this point home, the series replicates the scene with Will Graham in place of Krendler. Hannibal doesn't actually get to eat Will's brain as they are interrupted, but they nevertheless top it by showing us Hannibal ''drilling into Will's skull while Jack Crawford watches''.]]

* {{Asexuality}}: Reguarding the character of Frederick Chilton. Don't you find it odd that in a show like Hannibal where most main characters seems to have been involved in some kind of relationship and/or have all shown sexual attraction and where EveryoneIsBi (Will slept with Margot, married Molly and is strangely attracted to Hannibal; Jack [[spoiler: was]] married to Bella; Hannibal slept with Alana and Bedelia, and is in love with Will; Alana slept with both Hannibal and Margot and became engaged with the latter; Mason Verger was a sexual sadist who raped his sister; Abel Gideon and Garett Jacob Hobbs were married with kids, Francis Dolarhyde became the boyfriend of Reba McLane) a character like Chilton, with his number of appearences, is never seen or even mentionned to have somekind of relation? In the novels, he clumsily tried to seduce Starling, and in Hannibal Clarice meet a woman who claim to have been engaged with Chilton, but in the series Chilton never made ''one'' attempt at seduction despites his good looks and proud personality. Could it be because he just doesn't care about it?

* CompleteMonster: Mason Verger is a warped pedophile who had the misfortune to run afoul of Hannibal and ended up disfigured and crippled in a wheelchair for it. Seeking revenge, Mason murders and schemes so he can capture Hannibal and feed him to specially trained wild pigs. Now impotent, Mason obtains satisfaction by [[WouldHurtAChild torturing and abusing children]] and drinks martinis made from their tears. Mason also uses his own sister as a servant, having kept her in line with a series of violent rapes earlier in life. Fortunately, the film only implies he was a pedophile, [[LikeFatherLikeSon like his father]], with any other gruesome details pertaining solely to his RoaringRampageOfRevenge.

** Hannibal himself. While his suits scream "bespoke and expensive", they're very flashy.

** Hannibal himself. While his suits scream "bespoke and expensive", they're also very flashy.flashy. Subverted by the third season when he tones down his fashion to blend in more.

* UnfortunateImplications:
** [[http://markwatches.net/reviews/2014/05/mark-watches-hannibal-s02e04-takiawase/ This review]] gives a nicely thorough explanation of why people got so upset about [[spoiler:Beverly Katz being killed off.]]
** Much like the case above, more than a few fans have pointed out how unsettling it is that [[spoiler: [[RaceLift Hispanic]] male Dr. Chilton, who was genuinely trying to [[TheAtoner atone for his villainous deeds]], suffered a very cruel and unusual punishment near the end of the series while the attractive, white [[GenderFlip female]] Freddie Lounds is [[SparedByTheAdaptation spared from this fate]] and [[KarmaHoudini gets off completely scott-free with her immoral actions]].]]

* HellIsThatNoise:
** Brian Reitzell, the composer, pretty much works entirely with dissonance in this series, and the show uses that to push buttons.
** That horrific intense buzzing sound first heard in "Savoureux". The instrument used is called a bullroarer -- a flat piece of wood, regular in shape, at the end of a long cord. Sound is produced by twisting the cord slightly, then whirling the wooden blade in a horizontal arc, creating a whirring noise that can carry for long distances. It's one of the oldest known instruments in the world, and infamous for its eeriness.
