* BaseBreaker: Waldo Butters. On the one hand, he has plenty of fans of his slow, multi-book move from ZeroToHero, as an ordinary person still capable of great heroism and a refusal to be victimized. On the other hand, being the geeky schlub who gets a lot of nice things, including but not limited to [[spoiler:the hot younger werewolf girlfriend, the magic skateboard, and the lightsaber]], many see him as getting all of the things that [[WishFulfillment the proverbial GM's little brother would find "cool"]].

** Murphy. On one hand, she's a long-standing main character who's been in the series since the beginning and offers a vanilla human perspective, a staunch ally, and grounding for Harry. On the other, she's [[spoiler: no longer Harry's contact with the police and no longer a potential candidate for Fidelacchius]] and, according to WordofGod, will not have a power up like other characters, making people question her place in the series. Depending on whether people support [[WillTheyOrWontThey Harry/Murphy]] or [[DieForOurShip not]], this has further split the base. This has gotten to the point topics involving Murphy on the official Jim Butcher forums regularly incite flame wars and locking threads.

** The comic book. As Jim Butcher himself points out, ''DresdenFiles'' has the heart and soul of a comic book anyway.

** He Who Walks Behind is an EldritchAbomination whose distinguishing characteristic is that when it manifests it is ''always'' behind you. Even if your back is against a wall, it's still behind you. And now it just has a handy solid surface to pick you up and strangle you against. With one of it's tentacles around your neck. ''Which it didn't have in the reflection you saw of it.''
