** LK's video in the wake of the 2016 shock election result is played straight and is a simply, heartwarming speech from Joey that's genuinely emotive.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: As stated under the Dork Age entry, the show enjoyed its running gags and Shout Outs. Like most original sins, it was when it became almost nothing but this without a reasonable balance that lead to a decline in quality.



** The various [[TakeThatMe self-deprecating jokes]] that resulted from some fans expressing the view that the series has suffered from SeasonalRot can be extremely cringeworthy if you've watched Creator/LittleKuriboh[='s=] ''We're Still Here'' videos and know that his depression often causes him to feel that he's a disappointment to everyone and think that his attempts to make people happy have failed. This is especially difficult when he admitted that these insecurities have prevented him from being able to enjoy the 10th anniversary of the abridged series, and instead have only brought a feeling of shame.

* MisaimedFandom: Exploited heavily by LK for humour. Prime examples include Anzu's friendship speeches, despite many of the central characters being prone to them in the manga, the heavy amounts of shipping fodder and treating Yami Bakura and Marik as being more sympathetic (or deserving of more screentime) than the actual heroes.

** Due to some of the more cutting nature of the jokes at the series and the company that produces it, some fans watch under the impression the show is a big insult to Yu-Gi-Oh instead of a parody.



** Early Season 2 was seen as this for some people for an over-reliance on old jokes and referential humor. [=LittleKuriboh=] acknowledged this with Ishizu claiming [[TakeThatMe their universe has grown tired and cliché]] in Episode 44.

* WinBackTheCrowd: After the end of the Virtual World arc, [=LittleKuriboh=] ''stepped his game up''. The jokes became more based on the characters and story, fourth wall jokes and references where there but toned down, and it started following along with the actual plot of ''Yu-Gi-Oh!''. This was ''exceedingly'' well received by the audience; in fact, episode 61 was considered so good that it has been compared to fellow popular abridged series ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' in terms of quality.

** It's hard not to cringe when Serenity asks Tristan what sort of lonely deranged freak proposes on the Internet, and Tristan's response, now that LK and Safty are splitting up.
** The joke in episode 40 where [[spoiler:Ghost Nappa]] expresses his desire to capture Mokuba with a [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Master Ball]] becomes even creepier given the recent revelation that [[spoiler:Ghost Nappa is Mokuba's real father.]]

* HeReallyCanAct: Yami under the control of the Orichalcos is utterly ''terrifying'' and unlike Season Zero, not played for laughs at all.



** Téa once says "Oh, it is ''on'' in a manner similar to that of VideoGame/DonkeyKong!" About a month later, Nintendo copyrights the phrase "on like Donkey Kong", making Téa's line sound like she's trying to dodge a copyright.

* JerkassWoobie: Yami Bakura. Sure, he's evil, but between [[SpotlightStealingSquad having his spotlight stolen constantly]], the [[EnforcedTrope Enforced]] VillainDecay, and putting up with the "[[SurroundedByIdiots Evil Council]]", it's hard not to feel sympathy for the poor guy. Not to mention [[AllLoveIsUnrequited his "relationship"]] [[ObliviousToLove with]] [[TransparentCloset Ma]][[CannotSpitItOut rik]].

** Yami as of episode 71, after Yugi's soul is taken and he's clearly very shaken up about it.



* SpecialEffectsFailure: In Episode 61, Yami says that Yugi's obviously not getting hurt and acts unconcerned. A moment before, the animation clearly showed Yami watching Yugi's knee getting erased with a shocked expression on his face.
** ...That's the joke.

** Season 4 might be heading this way as well, due to the sheer number of episodes the show has produced, the struggle to stay fresh, and LK struggling with depression. However, it's still a bit too soon to tell yet.

** Creator/FourKidsEntertainment in general gets bashed in almost every episode. There's a reason why "invisible guns" have become a meme in some parts of the internet.



* BetterThanCanon: How some feel about the abridged series, with all the hilarious dialog and constant lampshading making the original look boring and [[{{Narm}} nonsensical]] by comparison.

* ValuesDissonance: The transphobic jokes made in episode 21 most definitely wouldn't fly over well fans nowadays as it did back when the episode was first released.

* CrazyAwesome: Yami Marik. He's one of the few characters LK doesn't really do a piss-take of; instead, his AxCrazy personality from the original series is largely preserved, if with more pop-culture references added.
