* DracoInLeatherPants: Shogo Makishima is this to some people. Many people tend to ignore that he is an evil bastard through and through and his endgame is trying to plunge Japan into anarchy and trying to mold people into serial killers just like him and not only that, he also disregarding his accomplices and followers when they are died. However, thanks to him being a pretty well-written villain and some people ignore the narrative about Makishima's true character, many people saw him as a heroic figure trying to make some citizens becoming an independent thinker to the point that an article in Medieval Otaku said that [[https://medievalotaku.wordpress.com/2013/08/08/shogo-makishima-the-villain-who-should-be-hero/ Shogo Makishima is a villain that should be a hero of the story.]] And not only that, to make things even funnier, there is an Anime Quiz App about Anime heroes that listed him as a hero.

** The way the first episode played out with the Criminal of the Week, wwhich in itself created a bit of a BrokenBase for his on-screen rape of the DamselInDistress, has already induced this for some.

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: ''Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness'' is generally considered to be a good VisualNovel with an interesting story that runs as parallel to the anime. It helps that Creator/GenUrobuchi supervised it.

* JumpingTheShark: The end of ''Mandatory Happiness'' (or at least Takuma's route) has [[spoiler:Alpha decide to blow up a city that would cause the rest of the world to suffer a slow, agonizing death.]] This removes all tension from the plot because it's obvious what would happen, and because the plot point that there's a ''significant'' way to game the Sibyl System and any implications about the future of Japan's isolationist society was shoved aside and aren't mentioned again, even in the epilogue.
