* {{Sequelitis}}: The first film had gorgeous animation, dealt with some pretty heavy themes for a Disney movie, and had very good music. The sequel dispensed with all of these and made the tone much LighterAndSofter. [[MoneyDearBoy Why Kevin Kline, Tom Hulce and Demi Moore stuck around for it is a mystery for the ages.]]

* {{Mondegreen}}: Some viewers mishear some of the OminousLatinChanting in "Hellfire" as "Because he's horny...", particularly the bit after "Then tell me, Maria, why I see her dancing there/Why her smoldering eyes still scorch my soul?" Which, hilariously enough, is ''entirely appropriate'' [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny given the context]].

**Hell, this moment was so bad, Frollo himself feared divine retribution FOR THE FIRST AND ONLY TIME IN HIS LIFE! Granted this was because of the Archdeacon's warning but still.

* BaseBreaker: [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] they may be, but the gargoyles do contribute a lot of genuinely FunnyMoments. Which side of the BrokenBase a fans falls into often depends on the age of that fan. With people who were teens or adults when the film came out hating them and people who were children loving them. Then there are those who don't think they're unequivocally awful, but don't like them much either. Base truly broken.
** Quasimodo not winning Esmeralda's love in the end is a major point of contention, as it's one of the few times Disney subverted the true love ending between the leading man and woman. Either it's a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop about ugly people not deserving true love, or a refreshing change of pace for demonstrating Esmeralda's right to choose (SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped explains that argument further).

** See Frollo's effort to grab the gargoyle as he hangs for dear life, as it constantly changes position between shots.

* EvilIsCool : Frollo. Ironically, he was meant to be so despicable that people would [[HateSink despise him with all their hearts]]. Instead, he became one of the most popular Disney Villains.

** Phoebus gets this treatment as well. In the 1923, the Burbank Films Australia version, and the Disney adaptation he is put in the role of a pure love interest for Esmeralda. However, in the book he was kind of a jerk who was just interested in her for sex.

* MoralEventHorizon: Frollo crossed it when he killed Quasimodo's mother merely for believing her to be a thief, and almost killed him too as a baby for being deformed. And he only goes downhill from there.
** The guards and the members of the crowd crossed it when they publically tortured Quasimodo. It stands out as the only atrocity that was not committed personally by Frollo and yet he still refused to stop it.

* ItGetsBetter: For all its strengths, the book ''could'' afford to shave off some of its exposition. [[UpToEleven There's a chapter that's as long as its own book devoted to explaining the view from Notre Dame.]]
