* CounterpartComparison: ''Guardian Code'' has been (rather unfavorably) compared to ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' and ''Series/VRTroopers'', given its RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude premise and the teenagers in question transforming into virtual soldiers to fight in a virtual reality realm. It doesn't help that a former ''Power Rangers'' writer, Ann Austen, is writing for this show.



** And of course, pretty much every fan is writing off ''Guardian Code'' due to its' heavy departure from the original show.



* InternetBackdraft: It's safe to say that the trailer for ''Guardian Code'' generated [[RealityWarper Hexadecimal]]-level chaos in the fandom, having a massively unfavorable like-to-dislike ratio and plentiful comments reacting in a negative manner to the various changes ''Guardian Code'' takes on.



* {{Narm}}: Whether intentional or not, the [=ReBoot=] fanboy from "Mainframe Mayhem" crying "After twenty years, Mainframe is back!" comes off as less of a tribute to old-school fans and more of a TakeThatAudience due to how much of a stereotypical basement dweller he is.
* NarrowedItDownToTheGuyIRecognize: Yes, ''Guardian Code'', we '''totally believe''' you hired perennial {{Series/TheXFiles}} creep Nicolas Lea just to play the love interest of the main character's mother. Of course.



** The ''Guardian Code'' thing, meanwhile, looks like ''[=ReBoot=]'' mixed with about three different shows that all had the premise of "[[RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude teenagers with attitude]] travel into a computer system and battle evil": ''Series/VRTroopers'', ''Series/SuperhumanSamuraiSyberSquad'', and ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' (which itself had a live-action/CGI hybrid show called ''Series/CodeLyokoEvolution'').



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The first Netflix "season" of ''The Guardian Code'', which comprise the first ten episodes of the full season. [[spoiler: Although Megabyte is a main villain, every other returning character is stuffed into the last episode and returned to their original 1994 configuration, implying Mainframe has been literally rebooted and the four original seasons have been undone. Hex's redemption and sacrifice, Matrix & [=AndrAIa=], Megabyte becoming a Trojan horse and hijacking the principal office; all these major plot points[=/=]character arcs are dropped.]] Only time will tell if the second batch of episodes rectify this.

* UncannyValley: Hex's Dot impression in the video game looks right, but maintains or even exaggerates Hex's signature walk with the swinging arms and the sashaying hips. FetishFuel turns into NightmareFuel when Hex's mask is removed in the form of Bob pulling off Dot's face, complete with squick sound effects.
