* AmericansHateTingle: Aoyama Masaya, poster boy for DieForOurShip, gets ''none'' of that in Japan.
* CompleteMonster: The anime version of [[BigBad Deep Blue]] forsakes the [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned extremism]] of his manga counterpart and becomes a cold, self-concerned [[TheSociopath sociopath]]. The leader of the aliens who come to reclaim Earth, Deep Blue creates a human alias named Masaya to stay hidden and oversees his flunkies' attacks. In the climax of the series, Deep Blue overtakes Masaya, and the very first thing he does upon awakening is stoically torture his former identity's LoveInterest, Ichigo, with [[ElectricTorture electrical energy]], unleashing a burst of energy that obliterates the nearby city. Deep Blue kills anybody who gets in his way, not excepting his own loyal servants, and is interested solely in [[KillAllHumans wiping out all humanity]] so that he can have Earth to himself. Deep Blue's [[LackOfEmpathy callous nature]] ends up turning even his own servants against him, and he shows himself to be thoroughly exempt of any humanizing traits that flesh out the other villains of the show.
* CrackPairing: Masaya/Berii.
* DieForOurShip:
** Aoyama received a lot of hate from fans solely for the fact that he's Ichigo's eventual canon LoveInterest. As mentioned in FanPreferredCouple, most would rather see Ichigo end up with Shirogane or Quiche.
** While it's not as bad as all the Masaya hate, some Ichigo/Ryou fans bash Retasu for having a crush on Ryou, as seen in some Website/YouTube comments. Nevermind that [[ObliviousToLove Ryou doesn't seem to be aware of her crush]] and that she is [[ShrinkingViolet way too shy]] [[CannotSpitItOut to tell him anyway]].
* DracoInLeatherPants:
** Quiche. Many fans seemed to forget that his "OMG TWU WUB" for Ichigo is StalkerWithACrush played ''dead'' straight, complete with "I'll kill you if I can't have you" and "I'll kill him just because you like him better than me" moments.
** Even if Deep Blue is a CompleteMonster, fans have even bought him leather pants as well. It may have to do with the manga version apparently intending to help the aliens.
* FanPreferredCouple: Masaya/Ichigo fans are a small minority, despite that being the OfficialCouple. Ichigo's other [[{{Harem}} harem boys]], [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Ryou]] and [[StalkingIsLove Quiche]] are much more opular.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Many fans refuse to acknowledge the existence of the sequel series, ''A la Mode''.
* FoeYay:
** Bu-ling/Taruto is canon and Pai/Retasu semi-canon if you squint.
** While not as common, there are people who ship Ichigo/Deep Blue.
** Not to mention Zakuro/Pai. It's still overshadowed by Pai/Retasu, though.
* LesYay: Minto and Zakuro, to the point where it probably goes beyond SubText.
* PeripheryDemographic: (Mostly) adult male doujinshika.
* ReplacementScrappy: Berry Shirayuki, the new girl as the star of ''A la mode'', is hated by audiences for taking the spotlight from all the other established cast. The fan reaction to her is parodied with Dr. Alphys in ''{{VideoGame/Undertale}}'' and ''[[CaptainErsatz Mew Mew Kissy Cutie 2]]'', where the mere thought of not-Berry results in an angry, rambling wall of text about how she's "neither kissy nor cutie".
* {{Ron the Death Eater}}: Masaya. Sure, he may be [[spoiler:a StepfordSmiler because he hates all of humanity, at least prior to meeting Ichigo]], but he wasn't ''born'' evil, although most people who hate him seem to not be aware of- or deliberately ignore- that spoilered part, which happens after the American dub ended, and instead demonize him as a GaryStu.
* {{Sequelitis}}: To say that ''A la Mode'' is not as well received as the original series is an understatement. With unlikable new characters, derailing old characters, and a lazily written plot, many fans don't even acknowledge its existence.
* ToyShip: Bu-ling and Tart, which actually becomes canon.
