Added DiffLines:

* HypeBacklash: Probably as many variations as there are spinoffs. While the series may be one of the most popular RPG franchises on the planet, some people may not see what all the fuss is about even in comparison to other action RPGs on a gameplay basis, or care for the unabashedly garish aesthetics (zippers and belts ahoy!), the original universe Square created characters, or saccharine themes offset against incredibly and increasingly convoluted plotlines across many games approaching fanfic levels. Even ardent fans will somewhat agree on the latter (some do infact [[NarmCharm relish it]]).

Added DiffLines:

* CasualCompetitiveConflict: Replace "Competitive" with "Speedrunner" and you have a pretty good idea of the division in the KH community. Speedrunners have something of an infamous reputation in the community as a bunch of elitist snobs who don't care about the franchise outside of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' (and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' to a lesser extent), who will turn their noses up at the other games in the series for not having gameplay that isn't an exact carbon copy of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, and spend all their time either grinding out runs of Kingdom Hearts II, or making videos where they nitpick the other games in the series for not being Kingdom Hearts II. The Speedrunning community, on the other hand, considers these accusations unfair and point out that they wouldn't speed run the games or even play them if they didn't like the series, and that they criticize the games because they want them to be as good as they can be, and that as far as they are concerned, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix represents the gold standard in gameplay for the series.

* SilentMajority: Despite having one of the biggest (and most infamous) YaoiFangirl bases in fandom, such fangirls make up a ''much'' smaller portion of the overall ''Kingdom Hearts'' fanbase than one might think, like with many other JRPG series and shonen anime/manga. Sadly, the VocalMinority is so loud and obnoxious that it turns off many potential fans, who dismiss the whole thing as yaoi fangirl fodder. This was more of a problem in UsefulNotes/TheNoughties; as of UsefulNotes/TheNewTens this is no longer a pointed stereotype of the fanbase due to the yaoi fans expressing their fandom in a more mature and less fervent manner, as well as more widespread acceptance of HoYay in media in general.

* {{Moe}}: Sora, for being a [[{{Adorkable}} lovable]] [[ThePollyanna goofball]] of a {{bishonen}} even during the worst of times. The original female characters are also this to some degree, such as Kairi, Naminé and Xion.

** The ''Days'' adaption in 1.5 Remix was criticized for its awkward cuts between fight scenes and for not including scenes from the Disney worlds. The adaption of ''coded'' in 2.5 Remix does include scenes for fights and the Disney worlds making the cuts much less jarring and telling the story more coherently. When 1.5 Remix was put on PS4, a scene for Roxas fighting Xion was added.

** The series has long been criticized for its entries being spread over multiple consoles from both Nintendo and Sony, making it a bit tricky to keep up. The 1.2+2.5 release for the [=PS4=], in tandem with the 2.8 release that remasters ''3D'', means the entire series sans ''Days'' and ''Re:coded'' and ''χ'' are playable on a single console.[[note]]And if you really want to play them, it isn't much of a hassle, as ''Days'' and ''Re:Coded'' are both on the same handheld, the Nintendo DS, and χ is available to anyone with an Android or [=iOS=] smartphone.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* SuperlativeDubbing: The English dubs are very well-liked, both for their casting choices for the OriginalGeneration characters and for having the many American-created Disney characters voiced by their original actors or soundalikes -- to the point that the Japanese Final Mix versions of the main games use the English voice track. The European dubs of the [=PS2=] entries are also well-liked by their respective audiences.
