*** "Longevity", an entire chapter showcasing the horrific things one would have to do to themselves to look like an anime character in real life, and just how hideous that would actually look.
*** The chapter focusing on an impossibly old woman, and Fran discovering the secret to her supposed immortality. The chapter appears mostly serious, with very little in the way of jokes, until you're hit square in the face with the punchline of the entire chapter: [[spoiler:Ever have an extremely old relative who requires constant care and attention, and never seems to die? They're doing it on purpose, because they hate you, and your misery feeds them and makes them immortal. ''Old people hate you.'']]

** In Chapter 59, it's revealed that a schoolgirl who was being used as a SexSlave by the school principal (who also pimped her out to his friends and anyone who paid up) had asked Fran to deliberately infect her with a virulent, sexually-transmissible strain of bacteria that causes male genitals to ''rot''. Cue two pages' worth of sudden panic as men all over the town are suddenly dropped in their tracks by the disease--teachers, politicians, school sports team members, cops...

* AlternateHistory: In the first chapter on page 5, Dr. Noamitsu Madaraki, Fran's father, is said to have traveled after UsefulNotes/WorldWarI to the USA and ''Israel'' to further his research, despite Israel being established after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII in the [[RealLife Real World]]. So either in ''Franken Fran'', Israel [[AlternateHistory was established earlier than in]] RealLife or [[ArtisticLicenseHistory the author messed up with this historic detail]].

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: In one chapter while justifying how the MonsterOfTheWeek couldn't exist, Fran claims dinosaurs evolved into birds because they were too big to sustain themselves and there was no landmass that could support them. Accompanied by a ''T. rex'' with a forked tongue (and, oddly, strands of proto-feathers).

* BigAnimeEyes: One strip revolves around a girl who asks Fran for surgery to look like a chibi manga character to get her crush's attention (a supporter of the "2D girls are superior to real life" debate). She keeps coming back to Fran for more modifications, until she finally has the opportunity to sleep with him, at which point we see the extent of the changes: [[spoiler:[[https://ambivalen.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/franken_fran_v05_c37_20-21.png her eyes are half the size of her head, her mouth is shrunken, her nose is gone and her hair fell out]]: she looks like one of TheGreys.]] Unsurprisingly, the guy swears afterwards that he experienced alien contact.

** Poor, poor Officer Kuhou. Throughout the course of the series, she's been wrapped up in a case of more-than-possible severed body parts, [[spoiler:[[CloningBlues cloned to help kill off other clones]] and then had to kill off the clones of herself (though this is probably a dream sequence), tried to talk down a half-suicidal man transplanted into a theme park mascot protecting a little girl, [[{{Squick}} randomly been ejaculated upon]] for ''just being in the room'', and nearly raped by a RealityWarper]], and that's just what we've seen ''so far''; note that the majority of situations involving her are PlayedForLaughs. No wonder seeing Fran makes the woman [[FreakOut seriously trip her shit]].\\
In addition to that list, [[spoiler: Fran kidnaps and creates clones of her again, this time with the ability to divide asexually to create even more clones. She then drops more than 1000 of them off on an isolated island to fight Gavrill, figuring that the best way to handle Gavrill is to let her kill enough of them to calm herself down. The original Kuhou gets to go back home, physically no worse off than before]]. It then gets even worse: [[spoiler:Kuhou learns that a new batch of her clones is being used to fulfill the many fetishes of a slightly crazy rich man. She breaks down hard at this, before accidentally getting captured and surgically altered into a monster girl--who accidentally wins the full love and devotion of the man who had broken her brain.]]

* {{Lolicon}}:
** Unlike most examples, played for drama. In chapter 21, the step-father of a girl abuses her. The ending of the chapter quickly becomes horrifying once you find out that [[spoiler:he ''requested'' Fran to turn him into a much loved children's mascot, and then goes to work in an amusement park teeming with kids]].
** In "Girls' School", [[spoiler:the bullies' victims are eventually shipped overseas to service otaku]].

* {{Asshole Victim}}s: Too many to count. While Fran and Veronica often do pretty terrible things to some characters, the victims in question are mostly jerks who aren't truly sympathetic to begin with.
