Simplified models are becoming the standard tool to study Dark Matter at colliders and in direct/indirect experiments. I will discuss the shortcoming of this approach in a simple framework: inert 2 Higgs Doublet models. after introducing the model, I will show a recent scan of the parameter space and highlight the features that cannot be captured by simplified models. Finally, I will touch upon the possibility of having a stable second Higgs in composite scenarios.
