** The general mockery of the DOMA/Waking the Dragons {{Filler}}. Some watchers are perfectly happy with Little Kuriboh's {{Take That}}s against this filler arc and its plot elements, either because they didn't like the arc themselves or found the derision in-character for Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged. Other watchers, some who liked the DOMA/Waking the Dragons arc, were not fond of Little Kuriboh's contemptuous ridicule for it and consider his abridgedment of the arc a low point for his series as a result. Alternatively, people have criticized the arc for leaning too heavily on meta jokes that the general writing quality of the episodes suffered due to relying too much on just potshots at the season itself. Fans who are neutral toward DOMA arc thought that while it was okay to not like the said arc, damaging his own series to OOC character level (even for abridge standard) was unnaceptable, especially for experienced abridged series youtubers like Little Kuriboh, who should not let his biased contempt clouded his works.

** Marik too, in different ways. Even at his most [[NotSoHarmlessVillain dangerous]], he seems completely incapable of taking care of himself, and having NoSocialSkills makes running an evil organization and Council all but impossible. He also displays classic symptoms of an InferioritySuperiorityComplex, and usually [[PleaseDontLeaveMe breaks down when someone close to him leaves]]. The series also hints that his stunted mental/emotional state harkens back to [[AbusiveParents Hank Ishtar]]'s ''[[FreudianExcuse spectacularly]]'' inept parenting. He also created the Melvin personality [[FunnyAneurysmMoment so he could get all the hugs he wanted]]. Hell, he even has [[WesternAnimation/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame "Out There"]] as his ImageSong.

* ValuesDissonance:
** The derogatory remarks about Princess Edena being a "crossdresser" and a "she-male" on episode 21 wouldn't fly over well with fans nowadays as it did back when the episode was first released, which was during the late-2000s due to heightened concerns over transgender people being abused and discriminated. LK is well aware of this and states he would never had let this happen nowadays.
** As of recent, [=LittleKuriboh=] has put [[https://twitter.com/yugiohtas/status/1307045382963245056 disclaimers on several of his older episodes]] (and changed the episode title of 37) due to them no longer reflecting modern humor.
* ValuesResonance: The series' jabs at the in-universe card game, including the SeriousBusiness nature of its players and the unintuitive rulings, are appreciated by a lot of [[TabletopGame/YuGiOh real-life TCG]] players who often feel the same way. Interestingly, [=LittleKuriboh=] did not know anything about the TCG until he was introduced to it in his Desert Island Decks Christmas Special.


* WeirdAlEffect: The series would make frequent references to WesternAnimation/PerfectHairForever due to LK's fondness for the show. However due to Perfect Hair's short lifespan and quick fade into obscurity while Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged continued to reference it over a decade later, many fans started associating these references with YGO Abridged itself rather than Perfect Hair.


** The first few episodes are not very good the voices are slow, the audio quality is poor, the jokes are weaker, and so forth. The beard starts coming in around Episode 10 ([[MagnumOpusDissonance ironically]] his [[CreatorBacklash least favourite]] episode [[FranchiseOriginalSin due to]] excessive [[ShoutOut referential humour]] in lieu of real jokes) as Little Kuriboh's voice acting, recording software, and writing noticeably improve.

Added DiffLines:

** Episode 26 featues Yami making a reference to "German Alternative rock group Music/{{Falco}}". Falco's just one person, hes from Austria, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking his music is more new wave than alternative rock]].


* CrazyAwesome: Yami Marik. He's one of the few characters LK doesn't really do a piss-take of. Instead, his AxCrazy personality from the original series is largely preserved, if with more pop-culture references added.

Added DiffLines:

** The show has also been praised for Yami Yugi's character arc in season four. While both iterations of the character share the same Fatal Flaw of pride, in the original anime it was never truly treated as something he had to work on after season one. This made his FaceHeelTurn in his duel with Raphael come out of left field since there was nothing at stake at the time. This also made Raphael's claims that he ''could'' have been a wicked pharaoh odd since Yami had spent series as a kind, heroic character who had his moments of GoodIsNotNice at the worst of times. The abridged series always exaggerated his pride and made him much more of a {{Jerkass}} at best, HeroicComedicSociopath at worst. This ends up making Raphael's claims a little easier to swallow, and his FaceHeelTurn more in character. Later on, Dartz's [[BreakThemByTalking breaking speech]] is so effective because he's [[VillainHasAPoint absolutely right]].
