* AccidentalAesop: Many opponents of the series cite examples of Jacob and Edward's dominance of Bella as anything from undermining feminism to propagating Mormon beliefs (just look at the AlternateCharacterInterpretation [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation/Twilight ''page'']]).

* HypocriticalHumor: Any time someone else in the story criticizes Edward and Bella defends him, or when Bella criticizes someone else (minus the humor). From the first book alone, Bella is outraged that her police officer father still checks up on her at night when she's sleeping. This is a mere ''five pages'' after finding out that total stranger Edward breaks into her room to watch her sleep and thinking it's the romantic thing ever.
** Bella mentally goes on about how Jessica only thinks that Edward is hot, "as if that excused any flaws". When Bella herself is obsessed with Edward's looks, taking literally every chance to remind us of how perfect his features are, the majestic shade of his eyes, etc., and forgetting to be angry with him more than once just by getting a chance to look at him again.

*** Or if you believe in CharacterDevelopment. There are authors, both here at TVTropes and out in the wider world, who despair over the lowering of literary standards ''Twilight'' either caused or revealed.

** Also, the extremely vocal and avid haters, who seem to use every opportunity to bash the series and its fans in every square inch of the internet, including [[Website/{{TVTropes}} This Very Wiki]].

** In the film of ''New Moon'', DakotaFanning managed to rival him despite having a grand total of five lines.
** You can really see Pattinson giving up at trying at all in Eclipse and deciding to just have fun, making his scenes FAR more enjoyable than the book counterpart. (Probably helped since in an interview he mentioned being super tired and busy from other projects while filming and barely remembers filming the movie.)
** Creator/MichaelSheen, too, [[OneSceneWonder promptly stealing the show]].
*** Especially in the SequelHook of Breaking Dawn Part 1

* BrokenAesop: Far too much to be included on one page. If determined, you can start looking at all the unfortunate implications.

* AwesomeMusic: In an inversion to the quality of the films, many of the songs on the soundtracks are ''fantastic'' featuring work by the likes of Muse, Paramore, Thom Yorke, Bat For Lashes, Beck, Metric, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Black Ghosts, Lykke Li, Death Cab For Cutie, The Joy Formidable, and ''many'' others. The OST is great as well, and the trilogy is scored by none other than CarterBurwell, HowardShore, and AlexandreDesplat.

* AlwaysSecondBest: The best any of the other characters can ever hope to be when being compared to Edward or Bella.
** Bella describes herself at this at everything... except being a vampire.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: When Edward first brings Bella home to meet his family, Esme is happy to see that Edward found somebody after being alone for so long, but the way it's written makes it sound like she was afraid he was gay and is happy to see he's dating a girl.



** The series also repeatedly implies that men should not be held accountable for things that they do when they are very angry or otherwise emotionally over whelmed.

* FauxSymbolism: The author tries to invoke this with references to the forbidden fruit and the lion and the lamb, but seems to have a poor understanding of what those things mean so it doesn't really work. Especially bad since Creator/StephenieMeyer is a Mormon and presumably went to sunday school in her youth.
