* InternetBackdraft: The less said about the third anime season, ''High School [=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, some fans were ''not'' happy with the latest adaptation. The fact that [[WordOfGod Ichiei Ishibumi]] supervised the anime more then the previous 2 seasons in order to create his ''EX'' spinoff, makes the third season rushing around similarly bizarre.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment : 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 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.

** Despite being a harem and everything, people seem to not like Asia as much as the rest of the characters because according to the fans, she's too clingy to Issei to share with everybody else.
*** 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.

* RonTheDeathEater: For whatever bizarre reason, Issei is made to be a much bigger loser then he really was at the beginning of the story to make whatever OC insert fanfic writers make to make him look better then Issei, usually accompanied with stealing Issei's harem members if Issei is still around in the story if not outright replaced entirely.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Those that read the light novels seem to be having this reaction to the third season of the anime. The order of events has been switched around, details like the charge-up period and time limit of Issei's balance breaker when he can use it at will have been glossed over, and content that only occurs in the anime seem to be the three big offenders for them. 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:The 7 part novel that comes with each volume of the BorN BD/DVD is about Ise's kids coming back from the future to FIX the anime continuity and prevent the Novel continuity from also being changed.]]

** When you get past his LaughablyEvil aspects, there's really no getting around how foul [[AxCrazy Freed Sellzen]] is. An exorcist who worked for the Holy Church, Freed did not believe in God and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters only joined to fight monsters]]. When the church kicked him out, he was free to kill anyone he wanted whether they were monsters or humans, eventually becoming [[PsychoForHire hired help]] for several of the series [[BigBadEnsemble Big Bads]]. When he first appears, he murders one of Issei Hyodou's clients and tries to kill [[TheProtagonist Issei]] himself, only to be stopped by Asia Argento. When Freed notices they met before, he [[AttemptedRape tries to rape her in front of Issei]], only to be stop when Rias and her peerage came, causing him to retreat, taking Asia with him. He later appears working for [[StarterVillain Raynare]], but only when she offered to have sex with him, and quickly abandons her when she gets overpowered. He later appears under [[BloodKnight Kobakie's]] employment, during which time he commits more atrocities, ranging from nearly beating Irina to death, to taunting Rias's knight Kiba with the fact that his swords where created from the experiments that killed Kiba's friends, while the two were fighting. In his final appearance, he was captured by the Khaos Brigade and willingly became a chimera so that he could finally kill the heroes and even [[ImAHumanitarian ate two of their knights]] to make sure he didn't lose [[note]]He still lost and was finally killed[[/note]]. Psychotic and perverted to a fault, Freed Sellzen manages to give a new meaning to the term LightIsNotGood and become one of the heroes' most dangerous and disgusting foes.

* BaseBreaker: In spite of being the most popular villain in the series, to say that Raynare is a divisive character is an understatement: one half says that Raynare is nothing more than a {{smug|Snake}}, [[DirtyCoward coward]] villain who deserved her comeuppance by the hands of Rias, especially for killing Issei with no good reason. The other half, instead, says that the psychological damage Raynare inflicted to Issei made the series a lot more interesting, and also that she could have at least had some of her backstory expanded. And ''then'' there are those who [[DracoInLeatherPants whitewash]] her like she's [[Literature/HarryPotter Draco Malfoy]].
