** Rias also gets this, due to people exaggerating her Selfishness from early on in the series, completely missing the point that as a devil, regardless of how kindhearted they could be, are still inherently selfish to a fault, with Rias not being the only devil that's portrayed as this despite good intentions.

* 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 [[UnknownRival one-sided]], since the ''[=DxD=]'' fandom doesn't really care about ''[=AoT=]'' in one way or another.

** The Heaven characters in general have also been greatly underutilized when it comes to the overall story. Apart from Irina, who's part of Issei's harem, Heavens's Angel characters only make rare appearances from time to time, and Heaven as a location only gets it's [[ADayInTheLimelight day in the limelight]] as the setting for Volume 18.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: A small hand of people tend to believe that Raynare died way too early in the story. Some even think that she should have survived, and make for an interesting addition to Issei's harem as a TokenEvilTeammate of some sort.

* 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.
** Issei living together with Asia and the part where he uses Dress Break on Riser Phenex's peerage when Creator/ScottFreeman actually would be convicted for multiple counts of child pornography.
** In prior volumes, especially the "300" short story, Azazel torments Ise to the point that he internally cries out "someone take care of this Final Boss Fallen Angel already!" In Volume 21, '''Trixexia''' [[SealedEvilInADuel does.]]

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Despite the exciting plot threads and [[ShownTheirWork well-researched lore]], its {{ecchi}} overlays may definitely put off many people. Not to mention said "exciting plot threads" are mostly ClicheStorm.

** 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 too much of an idiot at worst (even his CharacterDevelopment hasn't saved him much, with some saying it's trying to make a complex character out of a pervert).

* HarsherInHindsight: The series is banned in New Zealand on the counts that it promotes child pornography. Then comes why Funimation couldn't reprise Creator/ScottFreeman for Issei in ''[=BorN=]'', even if they waited to dub it normally, as it's revealed that he got arrested and convicted for multiple counts of possession of child pornography. This also makes the scene where Issei uses his Dress Breaker against Riser Phenex's peerage uncomfortable to watch.
