*** To say nothing of his ''[[HellIsThatNoise theme]]''. It sounds like the ending credits of a SlasherMovie!

** Eyedol's updated design. Some people love it, saying that it fixed many of his original design quirks, while also saying that the split-head is genius, while others think that the new design doesn't fit at all, and that they preferred the old 2-headed demon over the new ogre-like design.

* BrokenBase: While many fans were elated to see Killer Instinct get a '''long''' overdue reboot, the fact that it's an XboxONE-exclusive title[[note]]which is justified, as Rare belongs to Microsoft now; but the fact that the Xbox One itself is a BaseBreaker so far seems to have leaked over to the game too[[/note]] has many more split on whether it's worth the trade-off.

* AndTheFandomRejoiced: The reveal that Eyedol was to be the final new character of season 3 of the 2013 game was enthusiastically received by fans of the classic games, as this meant that the entire original cast from the first two games were finally reunited.

** Eyedol now has a single head, but it's ''split in half!'' You can even see his brain swell.

* JustHereForGodzilla: Admit it, finally getting a VideoGame/{{Halo}} vs. VideoGame/GearsOfWar fight with Arbiter and General RAAM is amazing.

*** As Season 3 progressed, a small but vocal part of the fanbase began lambasting Atlas Plug and Celldweller's contributions to the game as "refusing to leave their comfort zone", due to a large focus on rock and metal tracks (Mira's theme being an exception). Others feel that this opinion is widely overblown, and borderline hypocritical, as many of Mick Gordon's compositions were also rooted in various forms of rock and metal, particularly his Season 2 works.



** Smaller compared to some of the other contentious points above, but the animations of characters from season 2 onwards have slightly split the fanbase: their animation work is noticeably choppier as well as less fluid and detailed compared to season 1's, especially when it comes to facial animations. Some like the new characters enough and don't mind, some think it looks atrocious when put side-to-side, while a smaller third party actually ''prefers'' the choppier animations, as they remind them of old-timey fighting games and te first KI in particular.

** Gargos' KI 2013 appearance became this rapidly after his arrival, in stark contrast to his ReplacementScrappy position in ''[=KI2=]''. A wildly varied moveset, DifficultButAwesome status, and variety of crowd-pleasing combo finishers had him become a fan-favourite virtually overnight.


Added DiffLines:

** Gargos' portal punches are usually met with cries of [[Anime/JojosBizarreAdventure "ORAORAORA", "MUDAMUDAMUDA",]] or [[Anime/FistOfTheNorthStar "ATATATATATATA"]] from the chat during livestreams.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The 2013 game really loves particle effects. Hitting someone with Jago's Endokuken causes it to shatter into a bunch of energy particles. Also General RAAM's Instinct Mode literally covers the screen with moving objects while still maintaining the 60fps gameplay, it's quite a sight.

** The E3 2015 announcement that the game would be coming to PC with cross-play compatibility drew a lot of ire from some Xbox One owners, with some lamenting the loss of an exclusive game on that console ([[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement and that's all that we'll say about that]]), while others were concerned that devoting resources to a port two seasons in would negatively impact the possibility and quality of a third season of content. On the other hand, others were thrilled at the possibility of KI staying in the spotlight during the release of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', which had joint PS4/PC exclusivity, as well as a possible huge boost to the userbase. The latter fear has also been relieved by the announcement of Season 3 for March 2016, which also happens to be around the same timeframe for the PC port of the game.
