* {{Narm}}: Edward dramatically proclaiming 'This is the skin of a killer!'... then ''[[BishieSparkle sparkling]]'' is almost impossible to take seriously.
** The telepathic conversation between the wolves in ''Breaking Dawn Part 1'' is poorly translated. You'd expect one of them to suddenly cry out, "[[WesternAnimation/{{Up}} Squirrel!]]"



** One special mention goes to "YOU NAMED MY DAUGHTER AFTER THE LOCH NESS MONSTUURR??!!111!

** Not to mention that the Volturi [[spoiler: are still very much alive and kicking, and are now royally pissed off at the Cullens for making them look like idiots. It's outright stated that the Volturi will [[NeverLiveItDown never forgive or forget]] the Cullens' defiance. And even if the Cullens went to war with the Volturi and somehow won, they're the only ones keeping the vampire population in check. Without the Volturi, [[VampireApocalypse vampire society will descend into chaos and anarchy]] pretty quickly]].

*** Bella when Edward, her true soulmate and only love, leaves her and takes the loving family she thought she would spend eternity being part of with him on ''New Moon''.
*** Jacob when Bella, the girl he has been helping to heal in hopes of winning her love, leaves him, risking her life, to save the man he was healing her from in ''New Moon''.
*** Edward when you realize that while everyone had someone to love in the Cullen Coven he was all alone, didn't even have a date to prom (any of them), and was so depressed that he couldn't even play music anymore before Bella.
*** Rosalie being to having the family she always wanted, then being gang-raped and left for dead by the man she was going to marry.
*** Carlisle was turned into a vampire against his will and had to leave his father knowing that he would never accept him and probably try to kill him, spent centuries trying to kill himself to avoid feeding on people and was almost mad out of loneliness till he managed to get a companion in Edward and then a whole family.
*** Jasper feeling the agony of the thousands of people he killed till he found Alice and peace with the Cullens and his "vegetarian" lifestyle.
*** James. His parents were killed before he turned eleven and he spent his childhood alone, struggling for survival in the wild, with only his hunting skills to rely on.
*** Victoria. Nearly every member of her first coven (including her older sister) was slaughtered by the Volturi, who wanted to add Heidi to their collection. Victoria only survived thanks to her own power of self-preservation. Later, after her mate was killed, she was ruthlessly (if ineffectively) hunted by Edward merely for being an accomplice in his (James's) hunt for Bella.
*** Leah for being dumped by her fiance for her cousin (who he scarred when she rejected him), might have caused her dad's heart attack when she transformed in front of him, is not able to have children, is hated by the rest of the pack, protects a clan she hates, and is the only female not to be paired up at the end. In ''Breaking Dawn'', she mentally admits that her ex-fiance wants her to disappear and her own brother, who she spends all of her time protecting, tells her "you ruin everything!"

*** Charlie, whose only daughter goes on a four month crying spree over a break-up with her boyfriend during which she becomes nearly suicidally depressed.
*** Alistair. He's clearly unhappy about being dragged by the Cullens into a potential battle with the Volturi, and he abandons everyone as soon as he can. Then the official Guide came out, and his backstory was revealed: his own father sold him '''and his entire family''' to a vampire in exchange for power. When said vampire transformed him, he fell into a bloodlust that caused the death of dozens, including his father. Upon realizing what he had done, he ran away, only to discover that not only his family was gone and he couldn't live anymore among humans, his beloved animals rejected him out of sheer terror. No wonder he turned into a paranoid loony who refuses any kind of company. The movie makes it worse, because he stated that he was actually growing [[HopeSpot a little hope]] that everything would be settled peacefully... before seeing Bella packing a note and resources for Jacob and Renésmee's getaway, at which points he realizes she never had any hope for the Volturi to stop and listen.

** Marcus. His wife, which was Aro's sister, had been murdered and he never found the culprit. Now, he's TheEeyore of the Volturi. During the climax of the last movie ([[spoiler:even though it's only a vision of what could happen]]), what's his reaction when he's confronted by two vampires about to kill him?

%%** In fact, throughout the series, Edward performs every form of abuse there is against Bella short of actually striking her, and even then there was at least one occasion where he grabbed her with force that was just shy of doing any actual damage. There was also the time he threw her into a table and severed her arm, ostensibly to protect her from a rabid Jasper.

%%* The entire relation between the two main characters resemble more a drug addiction than love. Edward even lampshades it in the first film, but Bella also has her fair share of it, particularly in ''New Moon''. After being left by her boyfriend, she has an AngstComa that can only be fixed with [[DoesThisRemindYouofAnything big "doses" of adrenaline in order to experiment extreme sensations that allow her to have visions.]] She keeps hurting herself but still keeps elevating the doses of danger, to the point of practically killing herself in the process. And this is portrayed as true love.

* Reading the [[http://das-sporking.livejournal.com/873786.html Twilight Lexicon Personal Correspondence #12]] can be a rather... unpleasant experience, to say the least. Meyer attempts to justify some of the issues fans have had about aspects of the story, such as the Cullens murdering numerous people without any consequence, and it doesn't go so well.

* As pointed out [[http://applesparkles.wikia.com/wiki/Bella#Why_Bella_is_an_anti-feminist_FAIL here]], Bella rarely thinks before she acts and usually just lets her emotions and selfish impulses guide her actions... and this ultimately leads her to an eternity of happiness with the man of her dreams and a perfect, adoring family, all of whom seem to care about nothing more than taking care of Bella and making her happy.
** On the rare occasion that she does make her own decisions (as opposed to just reacting to stimuli and letting Edward think for her) it ends in disaster... from which Edward usually saves her. In fact, generally just going against Edward's will usually doesn't end well for Bella.
