** The reboot also has suffered controversy for having Javier Grillo-Marxuach as the show runner, after he was partly responsible for a ''very'' high profile case of BuryYourGays on ''Series/{{The 100}}'' that opened the floodgates to the trope becoming a hot button issue across the TV landscape.

* BrokenBase: Either Joxer is a funny comic relief or an obnoxious scrappy who shouldn't be in the same shadow as Xena and Gabrielle.

* NeverLiveItDown: Gabrielle's insufferable flirting with complete pacifism. More specifically, her starting it by throwing Ephiny's staff into a river, which comes off as quite callous considering what a big moment her getting it was. Actually that's not correct. The staff Ephiny gave her was sliced in two at the battle of Troy, in the first season episode "Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts."

In "Remember Nothing," Xena is finally driven to take back her wish upon seeing Gabrielle kill someone. Congratulations, you've saved your partner's innocence...for a whole one year.year.
** "Dreamworker" was the first episode to address blood innocence and the importance of Gabrielle maintaining it. The final scene sees Xena compare a first kill to throwing a stone in the lake, saying the stone will always remain under there and that the lake is forever changed. Cut to "The Deliverer": Gabrielle kills for the first time and laments that NothingIsTheSameAnymore.
** During "The Execution," Gabrielle learns that Meleager lied to her about quitting drinking. She takes that hard, later telling Xena that friends don't lie to each other. That sure takes on some new meaning when you watch the endings of both "Gabrielle's Hope" and "The Debt" two-parter.


Added DiffLines:

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: "The Key to the Kingdom" ends with Meg certain she'll never have a family of her own and Xena trying to convince her it is possible. After Season 5's TimeSkip, viewers see that Meg did have a family with Joxer.

*MyRealDaddy:Although John Schulian created the character in Hercules for the episode The Warrior Princess his Xena was more of a FemmeFatale and then a DistaffCounterpart to Hercules. It was the head writer for Xena, RJ Stewart who refined the character as we know her.

** The homoerotic relationship between
Xena and Gabrielle.Gabrielle constantly walked the line between subtext and text.
*** It's text in the modern-day reincarnation episodes, they get married and everything.
** Xena and Callisto. Although, that was more FoeYay.
** Gabrielle was canonically lusted after by a Valkyrie in a later season, and it was implied that Najara was in love with Gabrielle as well.
---> '''Xena''': (about Najara) "She's a tough girl, but she's got a weakness. It's the same one I've got."
** In "The Play's the Thing", Gabrielle's play convinces two girls to become "thespians".
** There's also Lao Ma, who attempted to teach a younger, angrier, Xena the value of peace, and of dancing with girls.
