* NeverLiveItDown: The sex cards have cast a shadow on the entire series that it has yet to shake off, even though the sequels omitted them entirely, reduced the number of [[OptionalSexualEncounter Optional Sexual Encounters]] dramatically, and dialed back on the AllWomenAreLustful trope.

On the bright side, though, through LeaningOnTheFourthWall, ''[=CDPR=]'' themselves have shown they're willing to joke about it themselves by way of SelfDeprecation.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Dandelion. He's the ultimate SpoonyBard. As the saga progresses, he becomes the only spot of light, wits and humour in this grim-dark world. In the TV adaptation, he was the only character to be acclaimed by both fans of the saga and regular viewers. His popularity was actively invoked in the tabletop game and he's still there in the video games, gaining even more fans. A rare case when a NonActionGuy (and more or less ''TheLoad'') in an action-oriented genre becomes highly popular. Being [[AudienceSurrogate just a regular guy]] in the WorldOfBadass helps immensely.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Aside from wooden acting and SpecialEffectFailure, this is one of the reasons why fans hate the movie and TV series. Where do we start? Vesemir is not a witcher but an old druid, the witchers are fighting with [[KatanasAreJustBetter katanas]] and a full list of changes would fill a whole new full page (some of them can be found [[http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/The_Hexer_%28TV_series%29#Differences_between_the_books_and_the_series here]]).

'''Geralt:''' Fine.
*** When Jaskier and Baranina became Dandelion and Ramsmeat rather than Buttercup and Mutton in the English translation, exactly no-one complained.

* TooCoolToLive: [[spoiler:Geralt and Yennefer. [[WordOfGod Although Sapkowski did say that that Geralt and Yennefer did indeed survive the events of the books]] around the time the first game was released.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HoYay: While both of them are strictly hetero, Geralt and Dandelion seem to be a little bit to close to each other for being just buddies. At one point, Geralt finds himself unable to kill a doppelganger who took his friend's form, because the sole thought of doing it fills him with disgust. He wouldn't have any problems killing the monster when it took his own form, but Dandelion is in a whole different league.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Who do you want to root for? A bunch of back-stabbing racists? The evil empire conquering known world? Mages and sorceresses playing their own game of world domination? Cruel elven supremacists? Or maybe an ignorant [[TheWitchHunter hunter]], who kills everyone in his way? Oh, and you know from the start how meaningless everything is, since you are informed before the ''title page'' of the first book about the incoming ice age.

* InkStainAdaptation: Initially played straight after the film adaptation (still getting a lot of bad air after ''a decade''). When the first game was released, the execs were seriously afraid of the outcry the film left. But since the games expanded into a trilogy and generated enough hype to convince the books' author to write a {{Prequel}}, it's now a very good subversion.
