Compare and contrast ''Manga/{{Akira}}'', ''Manga/{{Saikano}}'', ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'', ''Manga/{{Monster}}'', and the video game ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]''. For series that deal with a superpowered species, compare and contrast ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' and ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. Not be confused with Okamoto's one-shot ''Elfenlied'' (often written as ''Elfen Lied''), which has nothing to do with this series.

** Well, too many things to list, so lets just go with bloody [[NoNameGiven Unknown Man]]. He's sadist, a rapist, a murderer, and a child molester, and he nearly has his way with a rape victim name Mayu.
** Mayu's stepfather, who molested her repeatedly, and her mother did nothing to stop him. Result is she runs away with nobody to care about her till she runs into Kouta and Yuka.

** Well, Far too many things to list, so lets just go with bloody but a notable example in the manga is the character of the [[NoNameGiven Unknown Man]]. He's sadist, a rapist, a murderer, and a child molester, sadistic rapist who was allowed to torture many Diclonii at the research facility, and he nearly has his way with a rape victim name Mayu.
comes frighteningly close to raping Mayu as well.
** Mayu's stepfather, who molested Speaking of Mayu, there's also her repeatedly, and her mother did nothing to stop him. Result is she runs backstory. She ran away with nobody from home to care about escape her till sexually abusive stepfather and uncaring mother, and in the anime she runs [[InterruptedSuicide almost]] [[SuicideBySea walks into Kouta and Yuka.the ocean]] after realizing she has nowhere else to go.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: [[spoiler:Lucy's death]] and [[spoiler:her real name "Kaede"]] are widely known. Somewhat subverted since you wouldn't know ''how'' those happened or revealed. It may possibly be because of the former being MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext ([[spoiler:[[HilariousInHindsight her powers]] [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica exceeded entropy]]]], in other words), and the latter is all the way next to the ending.

'''''Elfen Lied''''' (pronounced ''Elfen ''Leet'''', not ''Elfen "Lied"''), written by Creator/LynnOkamoto, is a ''{{gorn}}ographic'' {{manga}}, which has been likened to a [[XMeetsY combination]] of ''Comicbook/XMen'', ''Literature/{{Carrie}}'', ''[[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde]]'', ''Franchise/{{Friday the 13th}}'', ''Manga/LoveHina'', and ''Manga/{{Monster}}''. In other words, it's a twisted mixture of mutant battles, PsychicPowers, split personalities, pseudo-harem antics, cute girls, the male lead who discovers that the person whom he interacted during that person's childhood is evil, and of course, bucketloads of {{Gorn}} - and it's more than happy to [[MoodWhiplash swing between comedy and horror at the drop of a hat]]. It has also been compared to ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'' [[XMeetsY as done by]] Creator/DavidLynch and Creator/WesCraven. There is also a short {{anime}} series of the same name that follows the first couple of chapters but ends with [[GeckoEnding an alternative ending]] before the real plot kicks off.
