* GuiltyPleasure: Some fans see it as this. Others see it as SoBadItsGood (see below).
* SoBadItsGood: Some reviewers take this view. They have reason to.
* VillainProtagonist: The half-lives are a mixed lot of good and evil, a few of them even offer aid against the truly monstrous ones, but the 'heroes' slaughter them all regardless. Rupert especially is purely genocidal, and on several occasions murders or threatens to murder allied or captive half-lives in cold blood. He even killed Luke's father for trying to make peace; he was supposedly framed for this, but no other explanation is given and it isn't even a little out of character.
* UnfortunateImplications: In the fifth episode, the heroes twice spike a woman's drink, plan to abduct her, and go through a women's bathroom kicking the doors open.
