* TheScrappy:

** While he's most likely the most hated character of the season, to some, Hibiki's father is considered slightly redeemed during the encounter with Carol, whereas all his cowardly acts turns out were meant to be a HeroicSacrifice so Hibiki can live and fix the family while he's gone, and he actually decided to man up, face his faults, actually helps Hibiki transform and then watch her battles from afar with complete faith.
* TheScrappy:TheScrappy: It's rather ironic that those who owned this status somehow get redeemed as seen above. But, to list their original faults...



** Hibiki's father, who abandoned his family after the concert disaster in Season 1, makes his first in-person appearance in the show in GX. In his first shared scene with Hibiki, he not only refuses to apologise, but asks for her help in trying to get him back with Hibiki's mother, and at the end of the conversation [[RefugeInAudacity leaves Hibiki with the lunch bill]]. His later appearances do nothing to endear him to fans either; while by the end of the series Hibiki has forgiven him (and even reintroduced her to her mother, who doesn't seem too happy at the prospect), he's still probably the most reviled character in the series among fans.

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: All of the Japanese voice actresses for the Valkyries 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.

* ContestedSequel: GX is beloved by many fans - but just as many baffle at its popularity. Common criticisms include unlikeable VillainSue 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]].

* VillainSue: Carol and the dolls have drawn criticism for the way they openly play the heroines like a fiddle for the vast majority of ''GX'', making virtually no attempt to hide that they're running a ThanatosGambit and yet having to finally outright tell the heroines what's happening for them to question it.

* CrackPairing; Hibiki x Kanade. There is [[SuitePrecure a good reason]] why some people ship them together and it is not just because of the [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight first and only time]] that they interact.

** There's also some Kanade/Serena shippers out there, despite the fact that the two have never met in canon. The only thing they really have in common is DeathByOriginStory (for Tsubasa or Hibiki and Maria respectively). [[ShipMates It's usually seen discussed alongside Tsubasa/Maria.]]

** One of the songs on Creator/NanaMizuki's latest album is titled ''Netsujou no Maria'' (roughly translated as "Maria of Passion"), and has something of an IntercourseWithYou vibe. Naturally, fans (especially [[LesYay Maria/Tsubasa shippers]]) took this and ran with it.

** Both Ver and Fine are redeemed by the season after they appear though: Fine pulls a sacrifice to save Shirabe from Igalima's Soul Reaper, whereas Ver plays a huge role in disabling the Chateau, reconstructing the world, and possibly finding a way to allow the FIS trio to fight with the 2nd Div trio ''without'' [=LiNKER=] - this last is EXTREMELY crucial as it means that they can now activate their Climax Song without instantly going down for the count.

However, Ver still veers in monsterdom as unlike Fine, his newest actions are still driven with selfish motives of making himself the hero of the world, proving that maybe you're not scots free from the trope even if you pull a HeelFaceTurn...
