*** That would seem to be a key part of why her potential was so low. She technically only asked [[spoiler:for a chance, and even if Kyubey had given her only that one chance instead of time powers, the wish would have been fulfilled]]. Most of Homura's actual capability stems from her own natural intelligence and tenacity rather than her magical potential. It probably wasn't even possible for Kyubey to see what she would do, which is likely the only reason (s)he was willing to contract with her in the first place.

*** When they can, it seems like the Incubators may still do this, making it all the more likely that it could have originally been their entire ''modus operandi''. It's been confirmed that [[spoiler:Charlotte]] never had a chance to fight a witch before becoming one herself. Given the nature of her wish and its subversion ([[spoiler:she wished to eat a last cheesecake with her mother who was undergoing strong chemotherapy, and saw her mother die ''immediately'' after eating it]]) and where her grief seed was found (a hospital), she likely only had ''minutes''.

** This scenario is made even more disturbing when you consider just what sort of wish a candidate during ''the Holocaust'' would make and how that would be subverted. How many people tried to save their families only to have them murdered in even more horrific ways, or got their loved ones more food in exchange for their being put in the "better" barracks where subjects for sadistic medical experiments were kept?

** Add to this, he seems to enjoy some things that are physically pleasant. His love of food might be funny, but it does make sense that he could draw enjoyment from things that are necessary for survival.

** Now that you put it like that, it makes the fact that the series is [[SeinenDemographic Seinen]]...kind of [[{{Lolicon}} unintentionally creepy]] when you consider how another thing the series has in common with ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is the MisaimedMarketing (albeit more {{Moe}} than Ecchi ,but it sometimes gets close to the later).

** As of the [[VideoGame/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaPortable PSP game]] revealed: [[spoiler:If Sayaka's soul is being kept away from her body for too long, such as a week or further, her body would begin to rot. Imagine Sayaka [[FromBadToWorse waking up with her grossly rotten body and bumping toward Kyosuke]]...]]

* Episode 6 reveals that [[spoiler:a Soul Gem is almost literally ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. [[SoulJar It contains the soul of the Magical Girl who uses it]], turning the girl herself into a lifeless shell that needs the Gem to be animated. When Madoka snatches Sayaka's gem and throws it off the bridge, it safely lands on a truck with a soft canvas over the back. Imagine if it missed.]]

*** On a similar note, there's a reason why Homura's costume reveals only the bare minimum. [[spoiler:When she became the magical girl, she had little confidence in herself, which likely extends to her physical self-image.]]

** This brings up the knowledge of how many other Witches ''must'' have been born out of [[GodwinsLaw the Holocaust]] ([[UnfortunateImplications perhaps opening up a whole new can of worms there]]), the rest of WorldWarTwo, all of humanity's other wars and instances of, well, inhumanity...as well as economic downturns such as [[TheGreatDepression the Great]] (ahem) [[TheGreatDepression Depression]] ([[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything which paved the way for the Nazis' rise to power]]), natural disasters and epidemics... And that's not getting into the much more permanent misery of the Third World. How many Witches has, say, Haiti or Sudan produced? Yeah, [[NightmareFuel you don't want to]] [[TearJerker think about it for too long]].
