** It can be very hard to take the subplot in Legends of Sawtooth Cave where Kate and Humphrey have to accept the fact that their pups are growing up when the pups themselves still look pretty much the same.

*** Lilly and Garth are also sometimes preferred over Kate and Humphrey, due to their development and dynamic as a couple (see TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot), to where some fans worry they may disappear because of the franchise's shifted focus on Kate and Humphrey's family.

** [[StepfordSmiler Eve]] is also liked because her threats are [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]], yet [[NightmareFuel frightening at the same time]].

* IdiotPlot: Dino Digs. In a movie about wolves, dinosaurs awaken from 65 million years ago after having [[AssPull sort of survived]], as well as [[ReferenceOverdosed random references to modern technology]], and a slapped-on {{GreenAesop}} from some humans. Oh yeah, and there's a musical number.

** The pups aren't particularly liked. Runt in particular gets a lot of heat for being a condescending brat.

brat. This made worse as many fans accuse them of taking away focus from more interesting characters such as Lilly and Garth.
* {{Sequelitis}}: Everything that's not the first movie or ''Legend of the Saw Tooth Cave''. Even then the latter is still very flawed.


** ''Legend of the Saw-Toothed Cave'', for the most part, seems to have {{averted}} this trope and in fact may have repaired a lot damage its two predecessors did to the fanbase.

** [[WebVideo/{{Bobsheaux}} Another reviewer]] has pointed out that the pup's [[BrattyHalfPint behavior]] could also be this, as well as Kate and Humphrey being rather plasse about it. Especially in Dino Digs when the pups state their parents [[BrokenAesop taught them how to be like this]].


* MoralEventHorizon: King crosses this when he has Runt abducted to draw out the packs' Alphas and makes its very clear that he intends to kill Runt when he's no longer useful.
** The head wolf of Daria's pack crosses this when he attempts to murder Daria as a pup due to perceiving her as useless because of her blindness. [[spoiler:It gets worse when he murders her mother for defending Daria, because it went against "pack rules".]] And then he tries to kill Daria ''again'' when she returns years later.

* UnfortunateImplications: As [[http://duckyworth.deviantart.com/journal/Duckyworth-s-Thoughts-Alpha-and-Omega-2010-459666646 this reviewer]] pointed out, the whole 'Alpha and Omega' ranking is only determined by the colour of the fur, nothing else. Another thing he points out is that during the climax, while [[spoiler:Kate]] takes only one blow before [[spoiler:her DisneyDeath, Humphrey takes plenty more blows shielding her from the caribou, making her into a FauxActionGirl.]]


** Despite his [[FlatCharacter limited presence and character]], Hutch is also quite popular, likely due to his presumed {{Badass}} NumberTwo position and Native American-esque facial fur pattern.
