* ContestedSequel: On the one hand, plenty of fans love the fact that there are far more series represented in this game compared to the previous installment, the ability to race on land, water, and in the air, and the inclusion of [[GuestCharacter Guest Characters]] like [[WesternAnimation/WreckItRalph Ralph]] or [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Team Fortress]]. On the other hand, plenty of fans are upset that characters like the Bonanza Bros. and Opa-Opa were removed and the less dynamic and unique All-Star moves have left many disappointed.

* TheScrappy: Danica Patrick. Audiences and critics alike have criticized her for being unfitting in the game, considering unlike the other guest racers like [[WesternAnimation/WreckItRalph Ralph]] or [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Team Fortress]], she's not a video game character, she doesn't have any connection to video games like LetsPlay/SimonLane, and has hardly any connection to SEGA.

** LetsPlay/SimonLane got a pretty heated reception on his announcement after it was revealed he was chosen rather than someone from the ballot to go with the Humble Bundle. It's the reason he was paid DLC rather than a free update, as the development team knew the immense backlash he would cause and made him optional as a compromise.

** When racing as [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Team Fortress]], Spy is the one who pilots the plane. With the Love & War Update of Team Fortress 2 in 2014, Spy was given [[https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Automatic_Pilot a new item set]] that dresses him up as, you guessed it, a pilot.

** When unlocking the Mirror Mode version of Dream Valley, the game accidentally shows the thumbnail for Adder's Lair. If you're not expecting it, it's a bit of a JumpScare.

** The DLC character poll. Fans used it to try bringing back characters who didn't return from the previous game, others tried to suggest bringing in other classic characters who didn't appear in the previous game, while others opted for new faces. But a good portion of fans were displeased that the character leading the polls and the most likely to win was the Music/{{Vocaloid}} Hatsune Miku, who was commonly mistaken as a Sega IP at the time, and a BaseBreaker among Sega fans even then [[note]]Sega was not involved in the creation of Vocaloid or Miku and don't own the actual IP; they only hold the license to create non-PC games based off the Vocaloid property, which also attributes to her BaseBreaker status; a good portion of the Sega fanbase who enjoy her consider her a proper character and part of the company, helped by the fact that the character would later be [[WolverinePublicity referenced in many]] of Sega's Japanese-developed games, although many others outside Japan reject her as a non-Sega creation that has little to do with the company's legacy[[/note]]. While her supporters came in ''droves'' to use the chance to get her to appear in the game and boost her exposure, detractors felt an actual Sega character was more deserving of the slot instead of a character that was relatively unknown to the game's core demographic and had a niche presence outside Japan, especially at the time. But there were also those who wouldn't mind it if she appeared in the game if it meant exposing the game to a wider audience, boosting sales and potentially building interest in Sega's classic properties. It didn't help that some of Miku's fans made it clear that they'd [[JustHereForGodzilla only buy the game if she was in it]] and [[FandomRivalry weren't interested in the game otherwise or the other properties it represented]]. Ultimately, she didn't appear in the game due to licensing issues, and [[VideoGame/{{Shenmue}} Ryo]] was deemed the winner.

*** The DLC character choices themselves also split the base. Aside from Simon as mentioned above, some diehard fans of Sega's classic console and arcade properties aren't as familiar with ''VideoGame/CompanyOfHeroes'', ''VideoGame/TotalWar'' or ''VideoGame/FootballManager'', all PC games and the latter two published by Sega, which left them scratching their heads who the characters were and were upset at Sega's decision to include them instead of more recognizable characters. Players familiar with the properties were perfectly fine considering they were free, and many loved General Winter's wacky characterization.
