* YourHeadASplode: At the end of the lost chapter "Galaxies," [[spoiler: the astronomer Torino receives an overabundance of galactic radio waves, causing his head to grossly enlarge until it explodes "like an egg in a microwave," according to Kirie. It then shoots into the night sky to exist as its own galaxy]].

* SubmissiveBadass: Shuichi can come off as this at times; he's generally timid and a bit of a pushover, however he still manages to take far more damage than any other character and still keep fighting.

What do all these events have in common? [[GothSpirals The spiral]]. A suicidal man's body was contorted into a spiral. The student's scar became a spiral in its transformation into a black hole. The "snail people" are marked by their spiral-shaped birthmarks, which slowly transform into shells. To make matters worse, the small island town is completely cut off from the rest of the world. All ships coming and going are sunk by whirlpools, while the tunnel that leads to the outside world becomes an endless trip.

** Kirie was also infected with the godawful, demonic spiral warts later in the story. They're on her feet, but are very small, and cause no problems, and then disappear completely.

''But'' [[spoiler:there was still a talking clown toy, and he was moaning something after the coffin was opened]]. Whether the former just [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness Kirie being a little unhinged]] after the events of the last chapter and the latter was just escaping gas is never explored.

* NothingIsScarier: The neighbor's son in the row house from Chapter 13 is never seen, but it is implied that he was suffering from a very severe version of the spiral "warts" that affected everyone else on the property. Given what we see of one person heavily afflicted with the disease (but still alive), he couldn't have looked good.
