Dhar Mann is best known for his motivational videos which seek to teach lessons about life. These videos usually involve a person who is acting in the worst ways possible (more known as an "antagonist"), and then towards the end the person learns a valuable lesson, or in some cases doesn't, and has karma backfired to them. The videos then end with Dhar Mann emphasizing the value of that skill. Some of the lessons taught in these videos range from things like never judging someone solely on appearance to being grateful for what you have.

Videos with toxic positivity
Even though Dhar's intention is to send good messages, sometimes he can give out bad ones. For example, in this video, a husband emotionally abuses his wife, but he said sorry once so that means she should trust him again. This is repeated again and again. Rob Gavagan made a 30 minute video chronicling the unhealthy messages.
In another video, Dhar portrays a young person who steals his mom's credit card to play games as in the right, and designates his mom, who tells him to get a job and takes away his Xbox, as in the wrong. Ironically, in another video, he portrayed a kid who stole his mom's card for Roblox as in the wrong.
Videos containing racism
In this video, a racist white woman stops being racist after her son's friend (who is black) gives him an expensive laptop, as his dad is the Vice President of one of the biggest companies of the world. In the end, the white woman says she never should have judged him before getting to know him. The moral unintentionally is that minorities need to prove themselves to white people to earn their respect. She also only stops being racist because the kid comes from wealth and does something that benefits her, and that gives out the moral "make sure you're not talking to a rich person before being racist". Jarvis Johnson called it out.
According to Jarvis Johnson, the actress who played the racist mother, Katherine Norland messaged him after he reacted to a video, Mom ACCUSES Her Son's Black Friend Of Stealing, INSTANTLY REGRETS IT! | Dhar Mann. She tried to defend the video depsite its controversial nature and said that all Dhar Mann was trying to spread a good message.
Dhar has also been criticized for over exaggerating situations and/or characters. Most commonly, a character will be made as despicable as possible to show that they are supposed to be the ones learning the lesson. But in reality, people do not always act like this or suddenly regret their actions. LegalEagle, when reacting to his video depicting court, called it the most unrealistic thing he'd ever seen.
In his video response to PewDiePie's and CinnamonToastKen's criticism, Ayden has a line which says, "You're Dhar Mann. Everyone loves you!" Most videos would claim that his merchandise would be a trend bigger than today's. Dhar is also critisized for often plugging his merchandise in videos, and in some of his videos he promotes himself as a celebrity and brags about his accomplishments and wealth. He is also criticized for overexaggerating his accomplishments and even faking them at some points. On September 21, 2021, Dhar Mann uploaded a video titled "No One Asks BALD GIRL To The PROM, What Happens Is Shocking". This video was criticized for Dhar Mann portraying himself as a hero, who helps others, despite the fact, that the stuff he did, that were shown in the video, were false. At the beginning of the video, an Instagram post was shown, where Dhar Mann paid a kids families rent for a whole year, even though neither the account nor the post existed, which means, that Dhar Mann had lied. In the same video, Dhar Mann was shown at end, as someone, who voluntarilly went to prom with a cancer patient. AugustTheDuck called him out on it, by calling it a "weird ego stroke, just to make him feel good about himself". Many people also pointed out that the video had several pedophaelic implications since Dhar Mann was an adult and the cancer patient was a highschool student (which would make her around 15-18).
Portrayal of child abuse
On October 19, 2021, Dhar Mann uploaded a video titled Kid FAKES SICK NOTE to Skip Class, He Instantly Regrets It | Dhar Mann where Mikey, a recurring character, gets punished by his dad for skipping a test. However, critics including August The Duck amongst others pointed out that the father's behaviour was too harsh and bordered on abusive. He pointed out non-verbal tics such as Mikey flinching whenever the father raised his hand and spoke, theorizing that Mikey's deviant behaviour stemmed from his unstable home life. He also critisized the teacher for witnessing the abuse and not doing anything to help him, and called the punishment of missing a basketball game and having his electronics taken away for being too harsh as all Mikey did was skip an hour of school when it was ending anyway (and he could just be punished by being forced to sit out the game). The video was also deemed by some as a child abuse fantasy of Dhar's because of its excessiveness and the fact that it treated something like class bunking as a heinous crime.
Response to criticism
On June 6, 2021, Dhar uploaded a video titled "Dhar Mann actor quits while on set, what happens is shocking" where he talks about the people who criticized him. In the video, Ayden Mekus (who plays characters in a lot of Dhar Mann's videos) is confronted by two "haters", who mock Dhar Mann and call his acting cringe. Because of this, Ayden feels disheartened and tells Dhar he wants to quit, only for Dhar to tell Ayden about the criticism he receives because of his videos, and then telling Ayden to focus on the people who love him instead of listening to the haters.
This video was heavily criticized as well, due to Dhar Mann's manipulative editing, as he portrayed PewDiePie as a "hater" and deliberately did not show him calling out Dhar for hosting giveaways of iPhones/PS5s (which Pewds considers buying subs). He also used a part of Rob Gavagan's video where he called Dhar a "cringe factory", but clipped out Rob calling out a video of Dhar's where he teaches a lesson of staying with a spouse even if they are abusive towards you. Adam Johnston called out Dhar for using Ayden as the scapegoat for the brunt of the comments, instead of focusing on the actual criticism people had of his videos.
The video was also criticized as when Ayden claimed that he was receiving hateful comments, the comments shown were obviously fake. Because of this, more reaction channels have satirized and reacted to the original video. On September 1, 2021, Pewdiepie reacted to Dhar's video as well.
On December 29, 2021, he announced on the community tab he would take a 2-3 month break from December to Febuary due to "COVID back on the rise" and to slow their productions.
