* UncertainAudience: It can be argued that this show's biggest problem is that after the negative backlash to the original offering, the creators seemed unwilling to try to be either too serious or too comical for fear of alienating potential viewers even more. So it's just a little too silly for the action to really work, yet at the same time it also takes itself a little too seriously for the jokes and callbacks to the source material to work as well as they should've. The usual favorite example of this kind of wishy-washy treatment is at the end of the show where twice big rocks fall on Danger Duck and Sylth Vester, and it's supposed to be funny and forgotten after the next cut (with neither of them supposed to have a HealingFactor to explain this). Then one minute later the villains show up and Ace and Lexi can't blast their way out of a collapsed room because suddenly rocks falling on the Loonatics is something that would kill them.

* DesignatedHero: Ace is supposed to be the greatest hero of all time, but has some questionable moments, especially in the second season. In "Secrets of the Guardian Strike Sword" he calls out his rival for attacking him from behind, then later in the same fight takes advantage of said rival's distraction to attack '''him''' from behind. Worse, that same fight is supposed to prove that Ace is the one who's really worthy of owning his CoolSword.

** People who thought the idea of redesigning the Looney Tunes as action heroes had promise were put off by the show' over-reliance on OriginalGeneration characters. The first season in particular was all original characters, with the only Looney Tunes characters present at all being the main six. Season two introduced more Looney Tunes characters like Sylvester, Elmer Fudd, and Marvin the Martian, but still tended to rely heavily on original generation characters.

Worse, that same fight is supposed to be proof that Ace is the one who's really worthy of owning his CoolSword. In "It Came From Outer Space," he refuses to entertain any notion of giving in to Melvin's demand to hand Lexi over. Even though she '''did''' blow up his star base, and Tech tells Ace they're hopelessly outgunned and trying to fight would be suicidal, Ace insists on fighting anyway. He even gets mad at Duck for suggesting that Lexi sacrificing herself to save the entire planet is the right thing to do. '''Before''' they found out Melvin was lying and had no intention of backing off once he had what he wanted. And Melvin wasn't even going to kill or torture Lexi, he just wanted someone who'd play board games with him.
** To be fair, AlternativeCharacterInterpretation gives us [[ImpliedLoveInterest a somewhat better justification]] for the examples involving Lexi. (''Just a little'', since he is supposed to be a superhero and he's sacrificing everyone, including Lexi, for Lexi's sake).

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: An anime-inspired superhero action show.... starring the Looney Toons? The show tries to combine slapstick and sight gags with tense action scenes, creating a disconnect that makes the whole thing impossible to take seriously. Even people who like the show have a hard time with this.

The only problem being... show usually argue that including the Looney Tunes.Tunes at all was a mistake and would have preferred all original characters and a focus on action instead of comedy.

* TaintedByThePreview: It wasn't tainted! It was The early character designs were extremely stylized and overly spikey, and the characterizations were written to be so [[TotallyRadical EXTREEEEEEEEME]]!X-TREEEEEME]] that it instantly turned people off. The show was being mocked before it even came out, and many of those people continued to mock it while [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch refusing to even watch it]]. There were even people still complaining about the character designs not realizing those designs had been changed.
