* ContestedSequel: GX is beloved by many fans - but just as many baffle at its popularity. Common criticisms include unlikeable antagonists that the show nevertheless tries to portray in a sympathetic light, bad fights with focus given to power level wank and one sided curbstomps over decent choreography, most of the cast being useless and barely doing anything outside of their focus episodes, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking pacing issues]].

* CompleteMonster: The BigBad of the second season is [[MadDoctor Dr.]] John Wayne Vercingetorix, known as Dr. Ver. A MadScientist of unparalleled ego, he has no qualms about using a Mook-making device on innocent civilians just because they saw him in action (those same Mooks disintegrate a normal human just by touching them), and has quite a {{sadist}}ic streak, [[SlasherSmile grinning]] like a [[LaughingMad maniac]] when a resurrected monster [[AnArmAndALeg bites off the heroine's arm]]. The other members of the terrorist organisation he's part of [[EvenEvilHasStandards don't think highly of him]], and only keep him because he's the only person to be able to look after the wheelchair-bound leader's health, which he gleefully uses as an excuse to inject {{psycho serum}}s to the combat-capable members. When the season's climax comes around, he flat out admits that he never shared the organization's [[WellIntentionedExtremist views of preventing the world's destruction]], and simply wants to [[ItsAllAboutMe save his own butt]], with optional plans to [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe repopulate Earth with one of the antagonist Symphogears]], hence why he accelerated the Moon's descent rather than stop it.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The TrainingMontage in episode 9 of G. It's comes after the revealed that [[spoiler: Miku is alive]] and doesn't seem to serve a real purpose compare to season one's montage to make Hibiki a better fighter.

** Dr Ver from G is a fan favorite villain amongst fans, due to his over the top and hammy nature as a villain, with some downright insane crazy expression, which seem to somehow benefit from being OffModel, emphasizing his batshit insanity even better. This may be the main reason why [[spoiler: [[HesBack he comes back]] in Episode 9 of GX.]] It also doesn't hurt that [[PlayingAgainstType he is voiced by]] TomokazuSugita.

* CrazyAwesome: It's clear that everything in this series was made to be as over-the-top as possible for the MagicalGirlWarrior genre, from the {{Badass}} fight scenes (coupled with SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic) to the utterly depraved villains, as well as the ludicrous NarmCharm moments.

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: All of the Japanese voice actresses for the Symphogear users are ''not'' widely known for the genre they portray in the anime. (Creator/AoiYuuki doing a {{Badass}} {{Leitmotif}}? Creator/AyahiTakagaki opting for HARD ROCK?). To be fair, Creator/NanaMizuki does have yet another DarkMagicalGirl character. Also TropesAreNotBad.

** Among the main cast, [[{{Tsundere}} Chris]] is probably the most loved character among fans either for the [[FanService obvious reasons]] or the [[MoreDakka less obvious ones.]] Her CharacterDevelopment and origins as a DarkMagicalGirl [[HeelFaceTurn pre-Heel Face Turn]] help cement her status as fan-favorite. It also helps that she has more fanart of her than the other girls.

* {{Moe}}: Hibiki and Miku both definitely qualify. And, come season 2, Kirika and Shirabe both climb onto the Moe bandwagon. Not to mention, Chris became a lot more Moe during season 2, especially at the end of Episode 4.
