YMMV: Witch Hunter
  • Evil Is Sexy: Many of the villainous witches, but especially North. Face be damned, her body and those lips are enough.
  • Foe Yay: In chapter 15, Tasha dreams about Varete. The current Fan Wank is that she's his mother, however.
    • Not according to Chapter 5. Alternately, Varete is a sexy woman and Tasha is a teenage boy.
    • Lee's glee about fighting Yue is rather... suspicious.
    • Aria and Tasha (the foe thingy is one of perspective, the yay thingy not) as well as Tasha and East.
    • Some saw a bit of this between Ryuhwan and Aria as well.
  • Fridge Brilliance: You remember all those stories about witch hunting and the church deciding that all superpowered women (or people) should die? This manga demostrate what would happen if people ''really'' faced a group of brutal magic users head on.
  • Ho Yay: Has its own page.
    • For starters: For a skirt-chasing fiend, Xing's attachment to Tasha seems a little bit conspicuous. (Shamelessly admitted to in the French official translation, Squee!.)
    • Lee's manservant, Eunwon, shows a depth of understanding and devotion towards him that may raise eyebrows.
    • Words and Cooga. This pairing used to be the stuff of Slash Goggles, but this page seems to have added some substance. Who's your little 'pet', Words?
    • Palgeuk and Vihyunrang have amassed enough Foe Yay to warrant fanart. Go back ~10 pages at one of JMC's blogs and you'll find a goldmine of Witch Hunter fanart.
  • Les Yay: Eclipse Shadenon and her teammate Alv Bronte.
    • As of chapter 36, witches South and Poine.
      • Also, North and Neptis.
  • Memetic Mutation: In Vol. 10, Tarras, Xing, Tasha and Cooga take on the roles of the Reaction Guys (AKA, the Gaijin Yonkoma), who are reacting to JMC dropping a Bridget on them. (And, by extension, the audience.)
  • Mind Game Ship: Tasha and East, ever since the series began.
  • Moe: Aria is deliberately supposed to be this before she became a witch. After... it's your choice whether she's still this or just creepy.
  • Narm: The Witch's hats are rather silly-looking, especially early on.
  • The Woobie: Xing that is, Yue in later volumes, as his past starts catching up to him.
