** A minor one, but some people have complained about Jack's [[https://thebechdeliancritic.tumblr.com/post/158875166810/whitewashing-in-samurai-jack different tone of skin.]] Some see it as traditional whitewashing, while others comment that believing an Asian character should by default possess yellow skin is pretty hypocritical in and on itself. The fact Jack's parents are still depicted with their old designs doesn't help matters.

* BrokenBase: When the third episode hit there became a split with the show's use of blood and gore. Some felt it was appropriate what with the show's newfound maturity and putting in more blood let the show heightened the stakes by showing Jack wounded. Others felt that the show is entering into the faux-maturity that plagues certain young adult media wherein the creators are trying too hard to be DarkerAndEdgier. A third group disregards the debate on maturity and argues that the blood worked with the striking stylized aesthetic of the show.

* DracoInLeatherPants: The Daughters of Aku are gaining a lot of sympathy from the fans who see them as [[TragicVillain tragic villains]] who've had no choice over their own fate.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsSexy:
** The 7 Daughters of Aku are beautiful, shapely female ninja warriors wearing skintight catsuits with tragic backstories and can actually give Jack the fight of his life. Naturally, this gained them a lot of fans before they actually appeared on the show.
** Scaramouch too for his over-the-top personality and equally awesome musical skills.


Added DiffLines:

* JerkassWoobie: The main 7 Daughters of Aku were just girls who endured TrainingFromHell from their abusive mother so they could be raised as child soldiers who would kill a man they knew absolutely nothing about all for the sake of carrying on the JerkassGod Aku's revenge while having no lives of their own and just being living weapons.


Added DiffLines:

* StoicWoobie: Jack has lost his idealism and grown into a nearly emotionless warrior who still carries on saving others despite his life falling apart and losing hope of ever returning to his home time. Whenever he's NotSoStoic you could [[{{Tearjerker}} expect the worse.]]

** Da Samurai has also been picking up some steam as well. People seemed to enjoy his towards the end of his episode, and some even hope he comes back for season 5.

** Crowning Soundtrack of Awesome for the whole series. Honestly, with all the other sounds telling the story, you won't miss dialogue.

** "Inner Jack" the embodiment of Jack's doubt and despair is Mad Jack or at least born from the same part of Jack's psyche as Mad Jack.
** The Daughters of Aku dragging out [[spoiler:their deceased sister]] and simply stating "Failure is Death." A callous dismissal of someone close to them as a failure or a PetTheDog moment filtered through their warped morality? They did take the time to bring the body with them rather than leaving it in the rubble after all.
