** The identity of Wonder Woman's ArchEnemy is often debated between fans. One side says it's Ares, another say Cheetah, others say Circe.

* Informed Wrongness: Anytime the subject of Diana using lethal force is brought up in stories featuring her and other heroes, chances are her willingness to kill will be treated as a moral failing on her part regardless of the context. The Maxwell Lord issue is a prime example of this. While the public freaking out is excusable since the video tape that showed her killing Max was edited to look like she'd killed an innocent, unarmed man, Superman and Batman treated her like the Anti-Christ despite having full knowledge of the situation and having even broken the no-kill rule themselves in the past.

* CrisisCrossover: As a major player in the DCU, she's affected by pretty much all of them to some extent (as mentioned, a popular move during these crossovers is to have Themysicra invaded and/or get half its population slaughtered). However, 1991's ''War of the Gods'' was arguably the only one to actually ''center'' around her mythos, and it was unfortunately not very well-received (see the page for why).

* {{Narm}}: In the TV series, her outfit looks like a blue ''diaper''.

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Not uncommon - the show had a somewhat higher budget than what Adam West's Batman got, but the show's premise required more fantastic plots, and unlike ''Batman'', it couldn't hide its cheapness behind the "just a silly comedy" excuse. Special mention goes to the swimming sequence from "The Bermuda Triangle Crisis".

* DesignatedHero: Her New 52 incarnation who lectures people in danger for being weak instead of saving them (at first), casually kills villains and is proud of it, and lets the Amazons propagate by raping and murdering sailors and then selling male children as slaves just because said slaves are treated decently by their owner.

** With exceptions of Greg Rucka's and George Perez's runs, which are mostly beloved and Merdith's Finch's and all Wonder Woman runs in her third volume prior to Gail Simone's, which are generally disliked, all runs on Wonder Woman fall under this as a whole.

* ContinuityPorn: Phil Jimenez's run. This causes quite a BrokenBase, because while some argue this makes his stories hard to follow and brings up unpopular plot elements most fans would prefer to forget, others point out this makes one of the very few writer who actually tried to build upon what other writers have done before him and follow Perez's vision, instead of simply ignoring it and re-doing everything from scratch.

* RomanticPlotTumor: None of her Post-Crisis romantic interest have been well-received, [[LesYay unless you count Artemis.]]

** Some fans go further and treat ''everything between William Moulton Marson's Golden Age stories and the George Perez reboot'' (around 40 years of material!) as one. It's certainly difficult to name an "iconic" Wonder Woman story from that period, even for sheer goofiness, with the Lynda Carter show as a ''possible'' exception.
