* BlackAndGreyMorality: The NEG and the Ashcroft Foundation do some pretty not-nice things, in the name of survival, even before we get into the ''Evangelion'' and ''FEAR'' bits. Meanwhile, the Migou are shown to have a fairly good point (that humanity is in fact totally irresponsible with its reality-breaking arcanotechnology), and the Dagonites have been shown, in the VillainEpisode, to not entirely be monsters, at least along themselves.
