* ExponentialPlotDelay: Though the series starts out quick and Haruto continues to grow stronger throughout, the speed of the overarching plot becomes positively glacial. New Phantoms are brought in and killed off unceramoniously, new rings are used and forgotten about, and questions that should be answered are never addressed. To be fair, part of the problems came from the fact that [[spoiler:Koiyomi's]] actress had idol duties she had to work around, and the filler isn't exactly boring. It just doesn't add up to much by the end.

* MoodWhiplash[=/=]DudeNotFunny: The ending of #37 mixes NightmareFuel with CrowningMomentOfFunny in a way that causes motion sickness for some. While [[spoiler:the Gate breaking up in despair is supposed to be a comedic punchline, the fact that his ''face cracks in the most scariest way possible'', followed by how in the other times it happened (''especially'' the last time, where it's used as a villain's ''MoralEventHorizon''), it's meant to be more scary and played with ''no'' comedy whatsoever, and it's like the writers forgot that this is supposed to be a ''bad'' thing.]]

** Phoenix. While all the other Phantoms (including Medusa) are definitely no saints, Phoenix is a complete psycho who will go to horrific lengths in order to make gates create more phantoms. This is shown quite well in episodes 8 and 9 when he beat a lady just to have ''a child'' give into despair; he takes it UpToEleven in 9 by going the same route as [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Leo Zodiarts]] (breaking into the hospital and randomly beating up innocent people, including patients who have no connection to the VictimOfTheWeek at all). Even Medusa is frightened of his tendencies, because he has apparently gone so far as to kill a Gate before the corresponding Phantom can manifest (this is why he is kept to an observatory role at first, rather than being allowed to directly intervene).
** Sora/Gremlin may very well count on the fact that [[spoiler: as a human, he was a SerialKiller who was responsible for multiple disappearances before he was kidnapped to be made to give into despair]]. Now normally, one a Human gives into despair and becomes a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Phantom]] they lose almost ''all'' aspects of their former personality (take for example Yugo and Misa before they became Phoenix and Medusa) however it seems Gremlin still has Sora's desire to murder women with long black hair and white dresses; when in Episodes 34-35 it actually seemed like he had noble intentions of protecting the Gate however it was revealed he intended to indulge in his host's former taste, attempting to kill her for the sheer fun of it he also makes no qualms about the fact that the women he murdered he did it for fun or petty revenge.

* UnfortunateImplications: The Cait Sith Phantom is portrayed as a lazy bum who'd rather nap than harass Gates. While laziness is a standard CatStereotype, the unfortunate part comes from the fact that his human form is played by Bernard Ackah, an ethnically black actor[[note]]Ivorian, but born in Germany[[/note]]. At least [[http://onoretvn.tumblr.com/post/43909825670/this-is-an-early-episode-of-wizard-where-mmaone fansub group made matters worse by [[http://onoretvn.tumblr.com/post/43909825670/this-is-an-early-episode-of-wizard-where-mma rendering Cait Sith's dialog with stereotypical "Ebonics" affectations]].

* MisaimedFandom: A good chunk of the fandom think that the show would be better if the Phantoms actually ''succeed'' in their plans to make Gates despair and become Phantoms, despite the fact that not only would it undermine Haruto's moral code if he so much as lets one person despair, Gate or not, but also due to the fact that when Gates become Phantoms, they ''die''.
