- Creator Backlash: Despite official claims that Artix Entertainment still maintains the game, their actual behavior towards any mention of it ranges from ignoring said comments to seething contempt for former players. In fact, the game has never been maintained since 2012, and its design notes abandoned entirely after 2015. Even with their official approval of reviving Oversoul, no equivalent plan will ever be approved for Herosmash.

- That One Boss: Momma Chuds has remarkably high HP, plus her attacks can hit for massive damage. Ouch.
- In recently-updated Friday the 13th events, the Alligator Man has significantly gotten MUCH tougher to deal with than in the first one that happened in Hero Smash. The huge damage it now deals doesn't help, either.
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: The chibi look of the main characters compared to the Animesque look of the other AE games.
- Ugly Cute: Some of the chudlings.
