** New Cloud Academy in ''GO''. They're the team you face for the semifinals and they're billed as one of the strongest opponents in the competition, and their striker is supposed to be one of the best ever (and it ''shows'' in his stats) Wouldn't expect them to fall into this trope, right? Well, you happen to get ''two'' back-to-back [[EleventhHourSuperpower Eleventh Hour Superpowers]], each more ridiculously [[GameBreaker Game Breaking]] than the last, ''and'' it's one of the very few times where ''you'' get a scripted goal, so the whole thing quickly devolves into a CurbStompBattle in your favour.
** Delibarately invoked with Mt Olympus. They're the team you have to play in the finals, they're coached by the BigBad and they're supposed to be incredibly strong (winning one of their previous matches 19-0). You're also given the ominous warning that you must be in the lead by half time or you'll get a NonStandardGameOver. Yet they're suspiciously easy. [[spoiler: This is because ''there is no second half''. At half-time, the ''real'' BigBad takes over and [[BaitAndSwitchBoss subs out the entire team and their coach with his own]], and you face Dragonlink instead, who are definately a challenge befitting of a FinalBoss. And it's implied that Goenji was instructing Mt Olympus to hold back.]]

* ShipsThatPassInTheNight: Fudou/Fuyuka is the most popular hetero ship for both the characters and one of the most popular het ships fandomwise even though they never interact even once throughout the entire series. The ships popularity might stem from their similar names, relationship with Coach Kudou and fondness for...bananas.

* DieForOurShip: Natsumi and Fuyuka can get this pretty badly from Aki fans who think she's "entitled" to Endou's affection for being his PatientChildhoodLoveInterest. [[spoiler: It got worse when ''GO'' revealed that Endou can marry Natsumi (Light) ''or'' Fuyuka (Dark), which means Aki is ''definitely'' the UnluckyChildhoodFriend for him.]]

* DiscOneNuke: In ''GO'', some of the downloadable moves are disproportionately strong for how early in the game you can get them. In particular, it's possible to get Emperor Penguin 7 ''extremely'' early in the game, at which point it's basically an automatic goal.

** Some fans are not happy with the addition of Avatars in ''GO''. And Level 5 goes ahead and adds the Armed mode in ''Chrono Stone''...
*** This was probably the reason why Avatars and Armed Mode were removed in Galaxy. Then again, they also replaced many of the old characters with new ones, which caused an InternetBackdraft as well...

** Also, Episode 100 when Hiroto and Kogure get lost in the woods, and are challenged to a match by a pair of Kappas, no character development happens, no new techniques are learned, and it's only mentioned in a blink and you miss it scene during a flashback.
*** The Kappas surprisingly enough make a brief cameo in Go's movie.

* '''ViewerGenderConfusion''': Expect to mistake a really pretty boy for a girl now and then. ... Actually, often.
** '''Kirino Ranmaru''' from GO. It's impossible to tell he's a boy unless you've either played the game or noticed that the sub (or even dub) mentions Kirino as a "he", in fact he's so feminine to the point that some people have actually accused him of being a crossdresser.
** And then ''[[RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms Zhuge Liang]]'' turns out to actually be a girl...
* '''TheWoobie''': Everyone has at least one moment of this. Fubuki is the most prominent example from the first series because he spends such a long time struggling over it. Also, Taiyou, who's terminally ill and yet still loves soccer and is on the recieving end of a major CurbStompBattle from Raimon and Shuu, [[spoiler: who's litte sister got used as a HumanSacrifice thanks to losing a soccer game and blames himself for it]].
** IronWoobie: Tenma starts out as this in the beginning of ''GO''. Also the entire Raimon team in both series could qualify. ''Chrono Stone'' adds Yuuichi.

* {{Woolseyism}}: Though the dubbed character names are honestly laughable, the localizations of the games themselves aren't half bad. One notable instance is in the first game, where Zeus's [[SuperSerum Aqua of the Gods]] is changed to "ambrosia", which both rolls off the tongue a lot better and fits quite nicely into the Myth/GreekMythology theme of the team.

* ScrappyMechanic: The new scouting system in the ''GO'' video games, in which you need to obtain items and sometimes multiple other characters for just one. Also having to set off event flags to score goals, and a draw resulting in an automatic loss rather than extra time can rub people the wrong way.
