* OneSceneWonder: Due to the long nature of the series, several characters whose prominence is in one arc and never appear again are this, including an old exorcist woman from the Demon head arc, several possible ShipTease interests and a great deal of demons and villains whose traits are as or more so interesting than the main villain and his overall scheme; most particularly the Band of Seven

Not examples
** Kagome and Kikyou both come in for quite a bit of hate from different ends of the fandom, most of it grounded in their mutually exclusive cases of DieForOurShip. ** Likewise Shippo, as a mouthy tagalong kid, and Koga, whose appearances inevitably touch of friction between Inuyasha and Kagome and whose introduction into the series leaves a shadow of ProtagonistCenteredMorality over his subsequent characterization that makes him hard for some fans to accept.

Natter.
** If you ship Inuyasha with Kikyou, it's apparently a requirement to bash Kagome. ** You ship Inuyasha/Kagome? You ''can't'' like Kikyou, PERIOD. ** Kouga: Inuyasha/Kagome fans ''hate'' him. ** If you like to pair Sesshomaru with anyone else, you MUST bash Kagura. (And sometimes Sara Amano.) ** Face it: The shippers for this series would ''kill each other'', given the chance and means to do it.

** Sesshoumaru: The coolest character ever or a childish character who can't come up with interesting dialogue.

* BrokenBase: Over the ''Final Act'', which crammed over 20 volumes into 26 episodes. It's either considered a SurprisinglyImprovedSequel from the last few seasons of the anime because of the fast pacing and removal of a lot of filler, or it's considered just painful to watch because of said pacing being ''too'' fast (particularly if one is familiar with the manga), rushing a lot of the storylines and leaving many PlotHoles as a result.

* GaryStu [=/=] VillainSue: Sesshomaru, [=InuYasha's=] big brother, who hurts whoever he wants to reach his goal. Early in the series he steals his brother's sword and masters it without training unlike Inuyasha who takes a lot of effort to wield it. Despite his actions, he is easily forgiven but unlike Koga he never opens to the cast [[spoiler: at first]]. Then he gains GodMode powers which allow him to grow a new arm, comes armed with a sword that automatically heals him and even a technique that rivals TheHero.

It's either considered a SurprisinglyImprovedSequel from the last few seasons of the anime because of the fast pacing and removal of a lot of filler, or it's considered just plain painful to watch because of said pacing being ''too'' fast (particularly if one is familiar with the manga), rushing a lot of the storylines and leaving many PlotHoles as a result.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Many fans of the anime and even several detractors have commonly felt that ''The Final Act'' was a significant improvement over the last few seasons of the anime's original run, due to speeding the pacing up and eliminating the filler that a lot of people had grown sick of, to the point of even removing a few arcs from the manga that didn't advance the story at all.

* ArcFatigue: Most agree that the series was ''much'' longer than it needed to be. Naraku had ridiculous JokerImmunity until the last act. The love triangle between Inuyasha, Kagome, and Kikyou dominates so much of the story and is resolved so late into the extremely long-running series that many fans were heartily sick of it, especially given how obvious it was that the outcome was a foregone conclusion. The story was also dragged out by Inuyasha's group being full of ChronicHeroSyndrome, helping anyone in spite of [[OnlySaneMan Inuyasha]] noting this draws them away from finding Naraku and thus the main plot. The Final Arc reverses this issue, cramming more than 20 volumes into 26 episodes, at the sacrifice of one chapter involving a regenerating tree hermit demon never being adapted in favor of Kanna's character development.

* FandomSpecificPlot: You can't swing a Tessaiga in the fanfiction community without hitting a fic where a character from the feudal era appears in the present having lived through to the modern era.
