** The way they try to commit mass suicide is terrifying in its simplicity: mixing two cleaning chemicals commonly found in homes, heavily implied to be chlorine bleach and hydrochloric acid. We even see Madoka's mother teaching Madoka to never mix the two, as the consequences can be lethal.

* Homura uses real guns, stolen, among others, from the JSDF. In 2011, right when the series was being aired, the JSDF reported the theft of Howa Type 89 assault rifles, one of the weapons used by Homura. And the Tohoku Earthquake happened right when the final episodes (the ones with the attack of Walpurgisnacht, who is usually mistaken for a natural disaster herself) were supposed to air. Quite the interesting coincidence, isn't it?

** A rather minor one, the two Grief Seeds, Elsa Maria's and the one Homura tosses to Sayaka: the first stay balanced on its point, waiting to be picked up, the second ''rolls then gets up by itself''. They aren't even the focus of their respective scenes, but still hammer how [[UncannyValley ''innatural'']] they are, just like the witches they come from.

* [[spoiler:Sayaka's transformation into Oktavia von Seckendorff. This was the exact point where Madoka Magica stopped being a Magical Girl anime. Mamiís death? Shocking and brutal, but it was still, fundamentally, a Magical Girl anime: albeit one that got more into depth about the fact that yes, they are fighting monsters that can, in fact, kill them. Magical Girls are basically liches? A dark take on the whole TransformationTrinket thing, but still, it didnít change the basic idea that they were empowered kids who fight monsters. Again, it remained fundamentally a Magical Girl anime. Sayaka turning into a witch? This was the point that any illusions of this being simply a dark, gritty Magical Girl anime fell apart completely. The point where the anime went from dark, gritty Sailor Moon to H. P. Lovecraftís finest CosmicHorror story. This is where the audience realized that Kyubey wasnít simply a creepy version of Kero or Luna. Heís a creature beyond human comprehension, and we are his goddamned ''cattle''. The reveal that Magical Girls become Witches marked the point that the story went from dark to '''hopeless.''']]

** Fridge horror makes it even worse; Kyubey states that where he comes from, emotions are considered a mental disease. So what happens to the incubators that feel? Are they locked away? Taken advantage of? Seen as potential Puella Magi themselves?

* Sayaka's bad end. [[spoiler:She has been deprived of her Soul Gem for so long that by the time her friends retrieve it, her body had already started to decompose. She hurries to go see Kyosuke. It does not end well.

* Madoka is drawn into a witch's barrier... by being torn apart and drawn into the barrier, ''piece by piece'' through several monitors, before being reconstituted within. If that wasn't enough, the witch preys on Madoka's grief by [[spoiler:replaying Mami's death over and over]], to convince her to give up as she's stretched and nearly torn apart for good. Lovely little BodyHorror there. For a change, all of these horrors are strangely absent from the manga.

* [[spoiler:The universe-ending witch Madoka was unsettling. That enormous EldritchAbomination with two halves of a face? Completely engulfing the earth?

There's a reason that version of [[spoiler:Kriemhild Gretchen]] is using ''celestial objects'' for ''eyes''.
