* It is stated that the reason The Nameless One is immortal in the first place is that The First Incarnation did something so unforgivable, so terrible, that he needed ''more than one lifetime to atone for it'' and even then it wasn't enough to save him from this world's version of hell. What makes it even worse is that ''[[NothingIsScarier we never find out what he did...]]''

** Fhjull Forked-Tongue has been magically sworn to give charity to anyone who asks for it. Because of this, you can effectively rob him blind of all his most treasured possessions, while he has to [[StepfordSmiler grin and bear it]]. And no, [[PayEvilUntoEvil it doesn't make the act any less evil just because he's a devil.]]

* ''Everything'' about playing an evil Nameless One. It isn't like in other games, where you play an "evil" character by going on bloody rampages, being selfish, or being mean in a hilarious fashion. Being evil in ''Planescape: Torment'' is just an endless depressing march of sociopathic cruelty. It has been said that the only way to be evil in this game without being so beaten down as to quit is either to skip through all the dialogue and not look at the horrible things you are doing, or to genuinely be a psychopath.
* The memory in the sensory stone called "Messenger". It is a highly descriptive look at Ravel the Night Hag's cruelty through the eyes ([[EyeScream so to speak...]]) of one of her victims... and she was being merciful.

It has been said that the only way to be evil in this game without being so beaten down as to quit is either to skip through all the dialogue and not look at the horrible things you are doing, or to genuinely ''be'' a psychopath. A few examples:
** If you obtain a particular magic tome, you can sacrifice one of your allies for power, or sell one of them into slavery for ''even more'' power. [[spoiler: Made particularly cruel for Grace, who actually used to
be a psychopath.
slave, and Dak'kon, whose entire race were once slaves of the illithids.]]
** You can [[spoiler: release Coaxmetal from the Siege Tower]] with the Modron Cube, [[spoiler: simultaneously unleashing a massive force of destruction on the planes, while also damning any Modrons who were still in the Cube's pocket dimension.]] Don't worry, though, you get [[InfinityMinusOneSword a really nice weapon out of the deal.]]
** As stated above, you can feed one of your allies to the Pillar of Skulls in exchange for information, condemning them to eternal damnation for the sin of [[FalseFriend believing you were their friend.]]
** When you find Trias [[spoiler: the second time you're in Curst,]] you can [[spoiler: allow him to continue on his crusade to bring the Blood War to the Heavens, dragging countless innocent souls into a cosmic bloodbath for the sake of vengeance.]]
** Fhjull Forked-Tongue has been magically sworn to give charity to anyone who asks for it. Because of this, you can effectively rob him blind of all his most treasured possessions, while he has to [[StepfordSmiler grin and bear it]]. And no, [[PayEvilUntoEvil it doesn't make the act any less evil just because he's a devil.]]
** You can continue your previous incarnation's abuse of Deionarra by [[spoiler: manipulating her into giving you aid, even lying about loving her until you shatter her hopes of reunion once more.]]
** If you want to become an Anarchist, you first need to [[spoiler: join the Believers of the Source,]] and then [[spoiler: betray them by sabotaging their huge project, condemning everyone who works on it to death.]] It only becomes nastier from there, even though the Anarchists aren't technically an evil organization.

* If you're banished to the Nameless One's maze by the Lady of Pain, you'll likely come across an old campsite containing a brimstone axe and an old journal made from leather and bone [[spoiler: that was written by the Paranoid Incarnation.]] If you [[FridgeHorror think about it too long,]] you realize that [[spoiler: the Paranoid Incarnation]] made the journal from the only materials that were available: ''his own flesh and bone.''

** Some lesser sensory stones are rather unnerving as well, though nowhere near as horrifying as Messenger. Unavoidable Pain, for instance, shows the experience of a person who, while struggling in combat with an enemy, had their hand slowly pushed into a lava floe.
