* BaseBreaker: The fandom's general opinion of Akiko earlier in the series. Very few people in the fandom took the middle ground, but both sides mellowed out over time.

** Count in the battle between the red-themed Arms Dopant [[note]]see HeyItsThatGuy section on the main page[[/note]] and the white-and-black colored '''Fang Joker'''. Then remember a [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger battle between two similar-colored warriors with the alignments inverted]].

Added DiffLines:

** Hikaru Yamamoto's acting as Akiko can get a little too over the top. It really showed in episode 30 where [[spoiler: she thinks Phillip is dead]], and her reaction was hard to take seriously because she sounded like how she normally did during her comedic moments of raging.

* MoodWhiplash: Made the previous reigning king of this in the franchise, ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'', look like an amateur effort. One example is how there would be serious scenes of Shotaro brooding over his mentor's death sandwiched between scenes of Akiko running around acting like a LooneyTunes character high on crystal meth.

* UnfortunateImplications: Jimmy's "[[HollywoodToneDeaf singing]]" style, spilk (''supikku''), sounds like a certain ethnic slur for Hispanics.

* FauxSymbolism: Accel's jacket carries the slogan "Spiritual state of nothingness makes even itself fire cool", which is paraphrased from a Buddhist philosophy.



** And his singing is almost as offensive as racism.



** Shotaro's fashion choice might turn off some Western fans, due to the infamous "fedora stigma" in the west recently.[[note]]Fedora-wearers are a rough equivalent of Japanese {{Otaku}} regardless of hobbies there[[/note]] Said stigma is not common to Japan, fortunately.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: Accel's jacket carries the slogan "Spiritual state of nothingness makes even itself fire cool", which is paraphrased from a Buddhist philosophy.

Added DiffLines:

** The whole Virus Dopant storyline. Incredibly depressing considering how Sachi was treated by the man she loved and ungodly scary if you see that the dopant isn't her physical body, but a manifestation of her hatred towards him and the guys who ran her.
*** Also, the way the dopant sounds and moves. It looks like something out of ResidentEvil

* ValuesDissonance: Some western fans deride Kirihiko as a HenpeckedHusband because he is deferential to Saeko, took her name after their marriage and has been physically abused by her on at least one occasion, along with the implication that it wasn't the first time. A Japanese audience would be less inclined to see him as weak, since their society emphasises reverence towards social superiors and loyalty to one's employer.
** Hell, you don't have to be an expert on Japanese culture to see it working this way. Saeko is ''the BigBad's daughter,'' and Kirihiko is just a good Memory salesman. If Darth Vader had a daughter he actually liked and doted on and a ''pretty decent officer'' (sorta guy Vader won't hesitate to strangle) married her, if the officer thought he'd be her equal, he's TooDumbToLive. If you're brave enough, it's still quite a desirable position - fifth-highest member of the organization. And if he hadn't acted respectful, there is no way he would have had a chance of getting that high in the first place.

* FanDumb: There's a lot of hate going around for '''Accel Trial''', calling him a rip-off of [[Series/KamenRiderFaiz Faiz Accel]] just because both have speed-based powers and have similar names. Never mind that they're all Kamen Riders anyway, or that it's obviously not uncommon for more than one rider to have similar powers, and that there are significant differences between the two.
** Oddly, you don't hear this about [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto Kabuto]]. He's another red, silver, and black [[TheHero protagonist]] Rider with armor in the exact same places, headlight eyes, and a speed-up power that's basically taking Faiz's gimmick further.
*** Possibly because in [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto Kabuto]], ''everyone'' had SuperSpeed.
** Quite a number of more jaded fans dismiss Accel's Bike Form as obviously MerchandiseDriven, RuleOfCool aside.
* FetishFuel:
** One can argue that the second part of "The L on the Lips" is close to becoming the series' [[FetishFuelStationAttendant outstanding source of kink]]. The episode included [[{{Bifauxnen}} Akiko appearing as a convincing young man]] and [[UnsettlingGenderReveal Philip dressing up as Wakana]], Isaka PlayingDoctor with Saeko, [[HoYay Shotaro chasing Jimmy across a beach, and Double riding Accel]]. The beach scene even got {{Lampshaded}} in Shotaro's PrivateEyeMonologue. Riku Sanjo either has interesting tastes or thinks the viewers do. Even TV-Nihon did not let it pass without [[http://capcam.blip.tv/file/3307351/ a commentary at the end of their sub]].
*** "Now, depending on who you are, that was either ''[[{{Squick}} really creepy]]'' or ''[[{{Squee}} hoooootttt...]]''"
** The [[ElegantGothicLolita Grasshopper Woman]] in "Client X".
** The [[CatFight fight]] between unmorphed Saeko and Joujima Rui in ep. 41.
