Either they are extremely CrazyAwesome (even the ones that could be labeled as [[CompleteMonster Complete Monsters]]) or they are [[MarySue so obscenely]] [[MartyStu overpowered]] [[HowToStopTheDeusExMachina that the author has to set absurd contrivances and unwritten rules]] in order to keep anybody (from the disciples to ''the friggin world governments'') useful.

* ArcFatigue: Kenichi's development has gotten this reaction as of late with many claiming that his growth has stagnated ever since his rematch against Tirawit which occurred about 150 chapters prior to the most recent chapter.
* AssPull: Shigure Kosaka's ultimate technique: Soutou Kyourenzan, which is telekinesis limited to weaponry. Even in a setting like this, such a technique is off the wall.

** The fan-service. You either find it enjoyable to a certain degree, or it's an unnecessary distraction to those who are reading for the fights and storytelling.

* CompleteMonster: YAMI Master [[BloodKnight Silcardo Jenazad]] couldn't stand [[VictoryIsBoring lasting peace]], so 20 years ago he incited a civil war, which he's still actively maintaining, in his own country. During said civil war, one of Jenazad's servants informs him that the men, who joined his side, because they were devoted to his cause, will die in large numbers if they persist in the current segment of the conflict. Jenazad's response: "So?" [[{{For|Science}} his research purposes]], Jenazad causes his past students to fight and kill each other. He causes an avalanche to try to kill his own modern-day YOMI student. Jenazad also almost manages to trick [[EvenEvilHasStandards fellow YAMI member Akira Hongo]] into [[MoralEventHorizon killing the titular protagonist]], and kidnaps and brainwashes Furinji Miu into becoming his newest cold-blooded disciple. He later supervises the {{brainwashed|AndCrazy}} Miu's battle against Kenichi, with the expressed purpose of getting her to kill Kenichi, following which her mental state will be completely subject to Jenazad's manipulation and the brainwashing process to convert her into his thinking will be complete. Jenazad detests peace so much he is willing to kill his country's deposed princess (the sister of the aforementioned "[[NotQuiteDead dead]]" YOMI disciple), who is all for restoring peace to the nation.

* HoYay: Has its [[HoYay/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple own page]].



* TooDumbToLive: Kenichi's refusal to [[WouldntHitAGirl fight women]] is depicted as chivalrous (especially by Miu) but in reality just gets him beat half to death by [[BerserkButton enraged]] female characters (e.g. Kisara) that he refuses to defend himself against. This is especially frustrating when coupled with Miu's god-like martial arts skills - every single time he is shown sparring against her or Renka, it always ends the exact same way.
