* DracoInLeatherPants - The Malleus Maleficarum gets this among critics of the setting, because of how self-centered the witches can be, combined with the ability to act on this bitchiness through BalefulPolymorph, disintegration, and casual murder. In the actual canon, they're an evil gang whose tragic experiences with witches lead them to consider merely being a witch a crime punishable by death, and will gladly kill witches who ''aren't'' evil and use their powers for the benefit of others or in self-defense, or children who ''don't know any better'' than to turn people they don't like into toads just because they can.

* NightmareFuel: Really, the whole setting is ''terrifying'' if you think about it.
** Its basic setting precept? There's a WitchSpecies walking this world who are can be described as entire species of SpoiledBrat {{Reality Warper}}s -- the typical witch is presented as if you took a [[KidsAreCruel particularly vicious and spiteful little girl]], gave her the power to do ''anything'' she can envision, complete with an entire society that ''encourages'' her to be as mean and cruel as she wants to be, and then gave her immortality with which to do whatever she wants.
** The many, many, ''many'' horrific displays of witch powers include every flavor of BalefulPolymorph you can imagine, from turning people into animals, or [[AndIMustScream fully conscious but immobile objects]], or food - [[ImAHumanitarian which is then consumed by the Witch]], [[FedToTheBeast feeding people to animals or magical monsters]], MindRape, and flat-up ''disintegrating people''.
** To the setting's {{hatedom}}, the existence of the fandom - of people who genuinely find all the disturbing stuff in this setting to be fun (or even FetishFuel) - is also nightmare fuel.
* UnintentionallySympathetic: The Malleus Maleficarum are, again, supposed to be psychotic, murderous, child-killing practitioners of FantasticRacism. But because witches themselves are presented as such awful, terrifying beings, and the Malleus Maleficarum is explicitly stated to be made up of people who have suffered "tragedy" as a result of crossing the paths of a witch, there are many readers who argue that the Maleficarum's KillEmAll stance is not only justified, but makes them the OnlySaneMan.
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The number one reason why this game and its precursor comics have such the virulent {{hatedom}} that they do. It's literally stated that Witches are not only allowed to do whatever they want to {{muggle}}s so long as they don't break Witch Society's very few rules, but actively encouraged to be as spiteful and vindictive as they like. Made worse by the comics (which have long been accused of being a combination of CreatorsPet and FetishFuel), which seem to go out of their way to present witches in the absolute worst possible light by showcasing just how monstrous, selfish and sadistic they can be.i

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The writing is at a slightly higher level than you'd expect for a kids' game, the discussion of the world, setting, politics and economics will definitely go over the head of younger readers, and the casual wickedness of the Witch Girls is probably not something you want to encourage your kids to be playing out.

* NightmareFuel -- The characters can be creative in their cruelty.
* TheyJustDidntCare: ''Re-Spelled'', the "1.5 Edition" supplement, is not only [[DevelopmentHell over a year late]] and a supplement to the original book rather than a standalone document, the developer hasn't bothered to copyedit it ''at all''. The book is borderline illegible in places.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation - Darkly comedic fantasy adventure with underlying themes of female empowerment and self discovery or a grim allegory for the ways the older generation draws the youth into its twisted power games? But then, given the average fa/tg/uy's attitude toward feminism, most would probably tell you these interpretations are hardly exclusive.

to:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation - For the game itself. Darkly comedic fantasy adventure with underlying themes of female empowerment and self discovery or a grim allegory for the ways the older generation draws the youth into its twisted power games? But then, given the average fa/tg/uy's attitude toward feminism, most would probably tell you these interpretations are hardly exclusive.

* MarySue -- Poked fun of with the "Mary Sue" character trait, which gives the character a roll bonus for when they're in situations where they need to show off and prove how special they are. Though the setting itself does lend well to creating them. See [[WitchGirlsAdventures the main page.]]
