** [[BigBad Hellmaster Phibrizzo]] from the second season and eighth LightNovel, the oldest of the Mazoku, wants to destroy all reality. This is pretty standard for Mazoku, but Phibrizzo shows sheer joy by which he conducts his manipulations and when he tortures and kills his enemies. There are few other villains in slayers who take such unmitigated delight in causing suffering, especially when Phibrizzo seems to target loved ones to give as much pain as he can to his targets.

** This one has died down over the years with the advent of ''Revolution'' and ''Evolution-R'', but many fans either liked or hated the third season (''Slayers TRY'') because of its darker plot and [[GrayAndGrayMorality fascinating(?) and well-done(?) questioning of who is and isn't evil]]. And the simple fact that by the end there was a sense of ''been there, done that'', with the antics of Lina and the gang - especially the antics of Lina - just not being as funny as they would've been in the two previous seasons.

** Sylphiel's demure personality, strength in healing magic over attack spells, and [[DieForOurShip feelings for Gourry]] made her heavily disliked by a lot of Western fans who have the RealWomenNeverWearDresses mindset. Because of that, the more stubborn Filia is preferred by them. On the other hand, both Sylphiel and Filia are only moderately liked by Japanese fans, and Hajime Kanzaka, the novel writer, [[CreatorBacklash dislikes]] Filia (and ''Slayers TRY'' in general).

** Another mistranslation in NEXT has Amelia referring to both Christopher and Alfred as her uncles. Christopher is Phil's brother, so that works. However, Alfred is Christopher's son, and looks to be about Amelia's age, which makes Amelia and Christopher ''cousins''. This botch is also probably the reason that Alfred sounds so much older than he is in the dub.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: If you watched ''NEXT'' in Japanese without subtitles, you'd have a hard time determining exactly what gender Hellmaster Fibrizo is. The dub fixes this by giving him a boy's voice.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: While her certainly seems like a classic IdiotHero outside of his swordsmanship, just how dumb is Gourry Gabriev exactly? Is he really as dumb as he appears to be or is he ObfuscatingStupidity to make his enemies underestimate him?

* CultClassic: Due to the fanbase having grown smaller over the years (It ''was'' wildly popular in [[TheNineties the mid-to-late 90's when it came out]]). The newcomers who find it, love it as much as its original fans did.

%%* JerkSue: Filia



* MarySue: Lina's sister Luna: the girl is ''the avatar of a God'', so powerful that she can kill an ImplacableMan dragon sub-species ''with a kitchen knife'' (in a SingleStrokeBattle, no less), and only hearing her name makes Lina (who has earned herself quite the reputation as TheDreaded) ''crap herself in terror''. While it seems like quite a waste that the girl is driven to not use her powers at all and just live a life of a common waitress (and thus is TheGhost), it is probably for the best-of all the enemies Lina faces off during the series, only the EldritchAbomination class would make Luna break a sweat.
