And thats just the tip of the iceberg.
* ItsEasySoItSucks: Taloc's Hollow solo instance, accessible to level 51 or higher characters. You are practically impossible to die as you are given a super buff that gives you 100,000 HP, a 5,000 damage AOE attack and a 7,000 damage single-target attack (10 second shared cooldown), and a super-powerful defensive skill - while filled with fake "EliteMook s" having stats roughly comparable to 1-2 star non-elite ones.
* ScrappyMechanic: Aethertapping. Aether is required for all ItemCrafting, but the nodes are only found high in the air. Combine with your measly one minute of flight time requiring two minutes to recharge, and you're going to spend a lot of time tabbed out of the game waiting to fly again.
** You can use Wind Serums to recover your flight time. There are also equipment that increases your maximum flight time, although they do not speed up your flight time regeneration.
* {{Squick}}:
** "Once you go Shugo, you never go back."
** There's also Kunberunerk, a Shugo directly stated as being "involved" with a female human which he keeps secret.
* StopHavingFunGuys: This is particularly prevalent on the official forums of the Americas service.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: There was a surprising amount of backlash and disappointment when they redid the [[{{Woolseyism}} pervy sounding]] Male Shugo voices.
* TheWoobie: [[spoiler: Kromede: Blackmailed, framed, watched her lover die, and was exiled away and is feared and hated by the rest of her people.]]
