    Light-front dynamics (LFD) is like sweeping dirt to a corner to make the rest of the space clean. This feature allows many practical applications of LFD to the phenomenology of particle physics. To strengthen the practicality of LFD, however, it is necessary to check where the dirt is piled and to find ways to handle the associate complications. In this presentation, we discuss an explicit example of a non-vanishing zero-mode contribution to physical amplitudes which has been regarded as one of the typical complications in LFD. In particular, we analyze the vector anomaly occurring in the calculation of the CP-even form factors of the elementary W
