For the Manhua
- Ensemble Darkhorse:
- Foe Yay: Sellyew still has some love in Leng Sha, even when she's trying to kill him and his allies.
- Ho Yay: Despite being from China, where views on this are not as the same as other countries, readers do see this within Posui Nangua and Ying Yen. Either that or a Love Triangle involving Ling Can.
- The Woobie: Losing her father and dream makes Lilo Ai definitely like this.
- Then, there are many others. Last, Chong Yin, Shanyao, Ye Ren, Ye Lai, Posui Nangua, and the list will keep going.
For the TV Series
- Ass Pull: The Sequel Hook, which was only foreshadowed with a single scene, where Danny's previously unmentioned son shows up at John's house. It feels like something thought up at the last second, and is the only scene that hints at a second season.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Ben Mendelsohn was retained as a major cast member for Season 2 by having Danny appear as a vision that haunts the surviving Rayburns. At the same time, he joined the cast of Rogue One, making it easy to make jokes about Danny being a Force ghost.
- Sleeper Hit: Was very well received by critics and had enough viewers to get a second season, despite almost no advertising from Netflix.
- Win Back the Crowd: After the first season finale wrapped up most of the story, the only Sequel Hook felt like a major Ass Pull to many. Because of this, many felt it was better as a stand alone miniseries rather than a show with multiple seasons. The season two trailer was very well received, and proved that the Rayburn's story was far from over.
