* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: ''The Second Renaissance'' Given how many times it's mentioned on this very page, the section it has in the Main/NightmareFuel page and how grotesque and cartoonishly disturbing and grim imagery and violence, you'll understand if more then a few viewers are turned off or disturbed by it. The HumansAreBastards being taken UpToEleven doesn't help.

* [[Main/{{Narm}} Narm: The amount of disturbing imagery, violence and overall depressing nature of ''The Second Renaissance'' get's so horrific and shocking that it comes off as nothing for then cartoonish shock value. Even WebVideo/NostalgiaCritic pointed this out in his review and cited it as the segments greatness weakness.

* HilariousInHindsight: A mask-wearing samurai voiced by Creator/PhilLaMarr rang tons of bells in 2017.

* MorePopularSpinOff: It had better reception compared to Film/TheMatrixReloaded, Film/TheMatrixRevolutions and VideoGame/EnterTheMatrix altogether.

* HarsherInHindsight: With the recent revelation that both of the Wachowski siblings are transwomen, the scene in ''The Second Renaissance'' where the gynoid is beaten to death while screaming "I'M REAL" becomes a ''lot'' more uncomfortable than it already was.

* RootingForTheEmpire: ''The Second Renaissance'' can easily make the machines look like the good guys of the series. To wit, they are created as a slave race (and are severely punished for disobeying their "masters"), they make a number of attempts at peaceful coexistence, all of which are mucked up by [[HumansAreBastards a violent and uncaring humanity]], and they more or less are forced into warfare and subjugating the human race after the human military cuts off their main power supply. Based on this short, and the fact that - when you think about it - the machines more or less created the Matrix as a mercy to their former masters (they could just have easily left them chained to their power-pods, considering that the original idea of having the Matrix powered by human neural activity got axed by ExecutiveMeddling), the viewer could be forgiven for coming to the conclusion that they've spent the series rooting for the wrong side. '''However''', considering that A) the Machines never consider things like leaving for outer space, B) several segments of ''The Second Renaissance'' do seem suspiciously vague, adding to the AlternateCharacterInterpretation of the propaganda angle above, and C) they do eventually resort to inhumane experiments far worse than what humanity did to them, it's virtually impossible to consider them "good" without stretching the definition beyond most parameters/white washing their actions.

** FridgeBrilliance: Blotting out the sun actually makes perfect sense... ''for the machines'', thus further supporting the interpretation of the narrator of this segment being an UnreliableNarrator. If the machines block out the Sun, they can use geothermal/nuclear/wind/etc power to replace solar. Humanity on the other hand has no real choice but to die off by the billions. As a plan by the humans for stopping the machine uprising, it makes no sense. As a plan by the machines for committing genocide against humanity, it's downright brilliant.

** The battle between the humans and the machines shows the earlier models of machine faring poorly and being destroyed wholesale, with later, deadlier models ending the war in a brutally sadistic fashion. The progression seems to imply a change among the machines themselves, who under pressure evolve from trying to peacefully coexist with humans to the more familiar version that is far more deadly, fearsome, and cruel.
