** The clothing isn't modest enough. Both Victorian and Edwardian fashions were very modest; exposed legs and cleavage would have been obscene. Mey-Rin's bathing suit would have been scandalous and Yana Toboso gave up even trying with the ladies' costume party and Ciel in Wonderland costumes. Also, Elizabeth's fashion sense sometimes sinks into 18th-century territory.

* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: Happened to Ciel.

to:

* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: Happened to Ciel. Subverted in the manga, as he hasn't slipped any farther than he was willing to go when he made the contract- his standards are just that low. [[spoiler: He remembers every innocent person who died because of him and feels guilt, but refuses to let that deter him.]]



** Anime example: Almost all of the dialogue in season 2 about Ciel's soul comes across as sounding sexual. There's one scene where Aloise threatens to tear Ciel's soul apart and feed pieces of it to his entire staff, and it comes across as something much worse. It doesn't help that Aloise is sitting on Ciel's chest while making the threat.

* BodyHorror: "The werewolf's curse" [[spoiler:or, rather, chemical weapon invented by the villagers and (unwittingly) Siegliende]] has this effect. The victim's face swallows multiple times its size and the skin looks like if it's melted.
* BrainsAndBrawn: Subverted with Sebastian and Ciel. Although Sebastian is [[GeniusBruiser also smart]] like Ciel, he is the one who fights against their enemies while Ciel is usually played as TheChessmaster.

* {{Bishonen}}: Ciel and Sebastian are the most obvious. There's also...pretty much a good majority of the male cast, save for Baron Kelvin, Georg von Siemens, Jumbo, Lord Arthur Randall, Azzurro Vanel, Fred Abberline, Tanaka, Damian, and Doctor. Basically, any male character under the age of 45.

** Actually, Ciel was ''successfully'' sacrificed, not ''almost''--that's how he and Sebastian were even able to make a contract with each other in the first place.

* AdorablyPrecociousChild: Ciel. A very bitter, very driven one. But before his bitterness, he was just so damn ''cute''! Differs slightly from the norm in that the only people who treat him as adorable [[BewareTheCuteOnes are the ones who don't know him very well]].
