* [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny Elric Is Unfunny]]: Can happene to some since Moorcock's Tropes have been widely used by brands like DungeonsAndDragons, {{Warhammer}}, TheWitcher and LegacyOfKain. Also the angsty protagonist that goes through a TraumaCongaLine has pretty much lost its novelty for quite some time.

** With Creator/JRRTolkien fans. Mostly due to the controversial ''Epic Pooh'' essay by Moorcock, which is widely criticised because it seems to get many aspects of Tolkien's work wrong, such as claiming he glorifys war, despite the emphasis on WarIsHell.
** Also with fans of ''Franchise/TheWitcher'' due to both them and Moorcock believing that Geralt of Rivia is a RipOff of Elric. Geralt shares numerous similarities with Elric and was inspired by him (They are both pale, white-haired swordsmen-sorcerors who are known as "The White Wolf" and use a lot of potions), they are in the end different characters, chiefly in that Geralt remains a "witcher", a marginal and liminal figure who moves between classes and is not really a chosen one figure, while Elric is an Emperor who has fallen on hard times and destined to bring about an apocalyptic prophecy.

** Also with fans of ''TheWitcher'' due to both them and Moorecock erroneously believing that Geralt of Rivia is a RipOff of Elric, in spite of the fact that outside of a few surface-level similarities (They are both pale, white-haired swordsmen who are known as "The White Wolf" and use a lot of potions), they are very different characters.
