** During the {{Familiar}} side story, Issei is recommended Tiamat, despite his concerns about being a Satan-level Dragon King. Rias suggests that he will have decent compatibility because he is already housing the soul of another legendary Dragon, Ddraig. We later learn that Tiamat actually hates Ddraig for borrowing her [[DragonHoard treasure]] and losing it.

** During the dodgeball game in Volume 3, Issei ends up taking a blow [[GroinAttack to the crotch]] to [[TakingTheBullet protect Kiba]] while the latter's attention is elsewhere, with Rias swearing vengeance as if Issei had just been killed. [[spoiler:Fast forward to Volume 12, where Issei's temporary death leaves the Club stuck between [[HeroicBSOD depression]] and a [[ItsPersonal lust for revenge]].]]

** The Khaos Brigade's terrorist attacks on the Three Factions becomes even more harsher when actual terrorist attacks would occur in the Middle East, such as those in Iraq and Syria, as well as in Europe, such as those in Paris and Nice. And all of these took place during the serializations.

** During the ninja side story (which already have a silly tone compared to the main story), Sirzechs pops out of nowhere as Satan Red, only to be dragged back by Grayfia just as quickly.

** The main heroine Rias is also one. Many enjoy her relationship with Issei ([[FirstGirlWins who he is most in love with]]) and the fanservice she provides, but some are annoyed by her [[ClingyJealousGirl selfishness over Issei]] and argue that her track record as the main heroine is sub-optimal.

* EscapistCharacter: '''Issei''' to an absurd degree. He starts the series off as an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, who's considered an unpopular, perverted loser by pretty much everyone along with his [[ThoseTwoGuys two friends]]. Then after joining the Occult Research Club, he spends all of his time with the [[TheBeautifulPeople most popular people in school]], wins the undying love of no less than ''seven'' absolutely gorgeous women, all of whom have [[{{Polyamory}} no problem sharing him]], and [[OfficialCouple starts a relationship]] with the most beautiful girl in school, who also happens to be a noble. He learns that he essentially shares his body with one of the most powerful beings in existence, [[TookALevelInBadass takes level after level in badass]] in record time, gains the admiration of his peers, and becomes insanely rich after his new brother-in-law makes an incredibly popular TV show based on him. The guy goes from being TheEveryman to becoming the envy of hormonal teenage boys everywhere before he's even reached his third year of highschool.

** An in-universe example. One of the short stories of the series was about the Issei clones that Azazel had played a prank on Issei. It was mostly funny until the part where they had to use the memory-erasing machine Azazel had invented (at best, they could only erase the memory of the clones running around but didn't erase the fact that an Issei clone did it, leaving the victims thinking the real Issei had done it to them because it would damage their brain memory). At that point in time, it was hilarious, albeit a bit unfair to Issei who didn't really deserve all that. Fast forward to volume fourteen, and that memory-erasing machine incident suddenly doesn't become funny anymore [[spoiler: thanks to the student council group using it to [[LaserGuidedAmnesia wipe off the memories of the students were the victim of a rouge wizard terrorist attack at the school]], which leaves students traumatized of something but not ''what'']]. This left a bitter taste to the student council and the protagonists.

** Among the girls of the harem, Asia and Koneko have the most naysayers. Both have relatively child-like proportions ([[spoiler:thoguh Koneko later gains the ability to age herself up]]), which can {{Squick}} some people out of the fanservice they provide or simply make it much less appealing than with the other girls.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The track [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EzNkxywVps "Ano Hi no Omoi"]] is similar to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTSc4hBdCd0 the main theme]] from the ''Film/LoveStory'' soundtrack by Francis Lai.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many fans who read the light novels criticize the anime's placement of volumes 5-7 in ''[=BorN=]'', which stems from Tetsuya Yanagisawa going against the recommendations of Ichiei Ishibumi ''and'' Takao Yoshioka.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Those that read the light novels seem to be having this reaction to the third season of the anime.

While some seem agree that things like the fine details of Issei's balance breaker probably need to be swept under the rug for the sake of the anime's pacing, the anime only content has them up the wall since the light novels have more than enough story in them to last another three to five seasons easily. They basically decry the anime only content as excuses for more fanservice in a series already overflowing to the brim with it. [[spoiler:Issei's kids come back from the future in the ''EX'' spin-off novels before the timeline could be altered even further. Good thing they [[ResetButton fixed up the anime continuity to match that of the light novels]], or else we would have had a timeline where Loki would have won.]] Ishibumi and TNK also admitted that after the third season, they decided to remain faithful to the light novel series.
