*** This lightened up (for novel readers, at least) after the introduction of Fafnir, who adds many humorous moments to Asia's character and gives her a much needed power up.

** Ophis is practically well-loved by the audience too.

*** There are groups of fans who continue to insist Mil-tan is actually the [[GodIsDead supposedly dead Bible God]] and is just screwing with everyone because its funny. ** Ophis is practically particularly well-loved by the audience too.

** The Old Satan faction. Katerea is quickly defeated by Azazel with only a self-sacrificed arm to show for her efforts, Cluzerei gets vaporized by Sirzechs a few minutes after his introduction, and Shalba is [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomped]] by Issei twice, the first as a result of Juggernaut Drive and the second resulted in Issei's first kill [[spoiler:though Shalba manages a MutualKill through underhanded means.]]

** It should be noted that in the last example [[spoiler:it was implied that the process of sealing the two dragons took everything the Three Factions had, may have contributed to the death of God, and left the warring sides too exhausted and spent to continue their war.]]

** The third season of the anime has garnered particular attention for altering the timing of some events from the novels. See the entry for TheyChangedItNowItSucks for more.

* FanPreferredCouple: [[BirdsOfAFeather Issei/Akeno]] seems to edge out the OfficialCouple Issei/Rias in terms of popularity. This is further enhanced by the fact that Akeno is the first girl in the harem that Issei goes out on a date with (barring Asia).

** Not even Issei is immune to this: one half of the fanbase says that he is a refreshing change to the otherwise extremely flat and boring harem lead formula and depicts the audience quite well, or his perverted nature at times becomes far too annoying at best or he is way too much of an idiot at worst (despite some CharacterDevelopment in his part).

* FandomRivalry: Some [[FanDumb rather rabid]] ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' fanboys don't look on ''[=DxD=]'' in a good way, if simply [[HateDumb because they don't like how series protagonist]] Eren Yeager [[Creator/YuukiKaji shares his voice]] with a LovableSexManiac. This rivalry, however, is mostly one-sided, since the ''[=DxD=]'' fandom doesn't really care about ''[=AoT=]'' in one way or another. * FriendlyFandoms: More prominently with ''LightNovel/TheTestamentOfSisterNewDevil'', ''LightNovel/DateALive'', ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', and ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'', but there is also a chance that a ''[=DxD=]'' fan may also be a fan of ''Manga/ToLoveRu''.

* InternetBackdraft: For some, the less said about the third anime season, ''Highschool [=DxD=] [=BorN=]'', the better[[note]]Despite the first two seasons adapting the first 4 light novels faithfully, the third season ending up rushing + jumbling around certain events, through the next 3 novels of content. As well as ending on an anime-original two-parter that resulted in a GeckoEnding.[[/note]]. Long story short, a few fans were ''not'' happy with the latest adaptation. The fact that Ichibei Ishibumi supervised the anime more then the previous 2 seasons, makes the third season rushing around similarly bizarre to some.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Fafnir's ''cooking'' show in Volume 17 during what is supposed to be an intense battle between Issei and company against the forces of Qlippoth.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Despite the exciting plot threads and [[ShownTheirWork well-researched lore]], its {{ecchi}} overlays may definitely put off many people. * BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Fafnir's ''cooking'' show in Volume 17 during what is supposed to be an intense battle between Issei and company against the forces of Qlippoth. Rias lampshades it as well.

** Kuroka is shown to enjoy a good degree of popularity in the fandom, and is possibly the only girl in the show itself to rival Rias and Akeno in popularity. All in all, she definitely does eclipse her younger sister Koneko in popularity. [[BlatantLies Perhaps coincidentally]], her breast size is also third after Akeno and Rias among recorded characters. This is also possibly one of the reasons of her subsequent inclusion into the harem.

** Rias may count to a lesser degree too. Who's crazy enough to be willing to bare her breasts open ''just to let Issei get a power up '''in public viewing'''''!? Also renovate Issei's house from a simple house into a six-story mansion with a three-story basement and an elevator '''overnight!?'''
