* 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.

* DuelingGames: ''Killer Instinct 2013'' is billed as one against ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear Xrd'', by virtue of being on rival platforms (''Xrd'' and the PS3/4 vs. ''KI'' and the XBO) and being the resurrection of two old 2D fighting game franchises. There's also a bit of an America vs. Japan thing going on.

** Gargos gets some heat as well from fans for being more of a stock character than Eyedol in addition to sharing his role and similar moves. However, there are some who like him for the fact that he contributed more in the story than Eyedol did.

However, there are some who like him for the fact that he contributed more in the story than Eyedol did. Like the other two, he's in the way from being Rescued due to his impact throughout all three seasons of Killer Instinct thus building him up for years.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Surprisingly, while not to the extend of ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'', ''KI 2013'' has managed to develop a loyal fanbase in Japan, to the point that even the American community was surprised when Ken “Bass” Armas, one of the game's top players, was beaten by Tomosama and Osomatsu, who, respectively, used Riptor and Omen, both of which are considered as low-tier in the American community, in their matches against him. [[http://www.redbull.com/us/en/esports/stories/1331791559875/killer-instinct%E2%80%99s-japanese-community-gets-hungry This article explains it well]].
