** Opinion is split on Kyubey. He's either a [[spoiler:disgusting, irredeemably evil monster, or an [[CuteIsEvil adorable]], yet [[NightmareFuel nightmarish]], MagnificentBastard [[WellIntentionedExtremist with admirable goals]]]]. ''Rebellion'' does '''NOT''' look good for the latter. Then there's a third camp that thinks he's a logic defying caricature of a villain that makes Dick Dastardly look sane, [[spoiler: considering his ultimate plan has the human race exterminated in order to fill his quota (quota implies that the demand needs to be regularly filled and his plan destroys his supply so next time he needs energy, he won't be able to gain it). Rebellion adds even more fuel for this camp as the series ends with [[spoiler: Kyuubi ultimately winning, only to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by trying to return the Law of Cycles to his control, thereby making the situation unstable again and eventually losing.]]

* CrackPairing:
** Mami/[[spoiler:Charlotte]] is a ''little'' too popular. Even Creator/UmeAoki seems to ship it! Mitigated by ''Rebellion'', which gives us [[spoiler:Nagisa Momoe]], [[spoiler:Charlotte's human form]].
** Mami/Kyoko used to be considered crack, because [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight they never met during the story proper]]. Then the 3rd drama CD revealed [[spoiler:Kyoko and Mami used to be very close friends before Kyoko's family died]]. Later, the manga ''[[Manga/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheDifferentStory The Different Story]]'' expanded upon their relationship. Now they're one of the more popular pairings.
** Mami/Homura, despite the fact that both girls have little in common. [[spoiler:Homura and Mami ''were'' on friendly terms... until Mami snapped and tried to kill Homura, followed by Homura's BreakTheCutie moment]].
** Sayaka/Homura has been gaining steam despite these two having the most openly hostile relationship with each other and an inability for them to get along (much to Madoka's distress).
%%** Mami/Kyubey.

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: While the Spanish dub of the series was generally well received, with critics noting that Creator/CarmenAmbros did an awesome work as Madoka and that Inmaculada Villalonga made it look like Creator/EmiriKatou could speak Spanish like a native, Creator/AriadnaJimenez's Homura was ''strongly'' critized. People pointed how not only that she was a bizarre choice to play such character, but also that, although she clearly did her best, her acting sounded as if Homura was ill with laringitis. Some suggested that Creator/CarmenCalvell, who played Sayaka, would have been a much better choice to play Homura, and even that Jiménez herself, in case of not wanting to ditch her, would have done it really good as Sayaka in Calvell's place.

* AcceptableTargets : As mentioned in [[http://homu-hameru.tumblr.com/post/74410036916/why-you-should-like-hitomi-shizuki this post]], Hitomi's anti-yuri attitude and possible homophobia is PlayedForLaughs.

** Madoka enters the show as [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]]. She comes out as [[MessianicArchetype Jesus]]. Eventually we learn the truth about magical girls and the reason why Homura actively keeps Madoka from becoming a magical girl: [[spoiler:it's a DealWithTheDevil that involves transforming into a lich [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor for a single wish that you are very likely to screw up]]. Madoka became GenreSavvy enough in one of the timelines to make Homura promise to keep her from becoming a magical girl]].
