* 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? Dear ''[[http://images.puella-magi.net/0/0f/Madoka_the_Ultimate_Witch.jpg?20110422223736 Madokami.]]'']] Yes, that ''thing'' [[spoiler:is Kriemhild Gretchen, the witch form of our adorable protagonist.]] [[spoiler:Every new timeline]] sees her [[spoiler:absorb all the magical energy of the previous universes that Homura has went through,]] meaning that each time, [[spoiler:Kriemhild Gretchen]] is bigger and stronger--way beyond what [[spoiler:Walpurgisnacht]] could ever hope to be. The wish that created that... '''thing''' was [[spoiler:infinitely stronger than any other wish, powered by 100+ universes worth of magical potential]]. There's a reason that version of [[spoiler:Kriemhild Gretchen]] is using ''celestial objects'' for ''eyes''.

* The series really hammers home the fact that, under the flashy outfits and magic powers, Magical Girls are just glorified ChildSoldiers. They have to willingly enter life-threatening situations ''on a regular basis'' [[AdultFear without their friends or family even knowing where they are]]. And even with magic, they're all still teenage girls who've probably never even held a gun, much less had any proper combat training. When Sayaka started out as a Magical Girl, she got her ass handed to her by both Kyoko and Homura. After she [[spoiler: learns the truth about Magica Girls]], she pretty much abandons anything resembling strategy and [[TheBerserker simply tanks attacks]]. The only reason she manages to survive any of this is because her wish to heal Kyosuke also granted her a HealingFactor. It makes you wonder just how many inexperienced young girls without this kind of power or who just don't know any better have suffered horrific deaths in battles against Witches. The worst part though? Since [[spoiler: they'll turn into witches themselves without grief seeds]], they have ''no choice'' but to keep fighting.

* The infamous "Train Scene" was, arguably, rendered somewhat terrifying in the Creator/ABC3 broadcast. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids Considering the content on this scene]], it had to be censored, so the entire profanity riddled conversation is silent, yet Sayaka's diologue is relatively unchanged, so now it appears that Sayaka just started asking about random bullshit to two unaware passengers.

* Sayaka is alone in a train compartment with two men who are badmouthing the girlfriend of one. She gets up and, in a scene that wouldn't be out of place in [[VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry Higurashi]], asks them to [[http://www.mangareader.net/mahou-shoujo-madoka-magica/8/20 tell her about the girl, then suddenly wondering why she should protect guys who act the way they do]]. She transforms into a magical girl and...[[http://www.mangareader.net/mahou-shoujo-madoka-magica/8/21 nothing]]. The infamous "Train Scene" two men are gone and it is ''heavily'' implied that Sayaka killed them. [[NothingIsScarier We don't see anything...]] What's worse, there're multiple [[WordOfGod Gods]] in this work, and they each have a different opinion on this issue. Producer Shinbo said Sayaka [[spoiler:did ''not'' kill them in the anime]]. Hanokage says [[spoiler:she did]] in the manga, and writer Urobuchi says [[spoiler:it's deliberately ambiguous]].
** It's even creepier when you pay closer attention to [[http://www.mangareader.net/mahou-shoujo-madoka-magica/8/21 the center panel]]. [[spoiler:There are blood stains trailing behind her sword]]. Yeah... a remainder to those who think of [[MagicalGirl Magical Girls]] as cute and pretty. Being warriors, their magic is aimed at KILLING, not just flash and entertainment... and the target doesn't necessarily have to be other magical beings...
** It's even more upsetting once you know that the guys' dialog ''happened in real life''. Urobuchi heard two guys talking like that while he was on the train (albeit he said that the anime dialog was a short version of what they talked about because they talked a lot). [[spoiler:What if magical girls actually exist and Urobuchi told a story where a magical girl killed two dudes?]]
** Of course, the ''real'' scariest part of this is that there are indeed people out there who seriously hold such opinions and feel confident enough in themselves (or at least after getting drunk) to spout them in public. You may have heard people voicing similar opinions today...

** A bit meta, but the fact that this troper's stomach began to cramp up the moment Kyubey touched the Soul Gem and stopped the moment he took his paw off was pretty damn freaky.

* In an interview with the director, he stated the the number of times Homura has re-wound time is [[spoiler:approaching 100. If we consider that Homura left the hospital in the middle of March and Walpurgisnacht appears at the end of April, that means that Homura's been lost in time for about 12 years. In other words, she has been ''at war'' against witches and Kyubey for ''12 years''.]] On the other hand, this also [[spoiler:makes all those [=HomuMado=] implications ''seriously creepy''.]]

** Since he's a colossal ManipulativeBastard, we have no reason to think anything Kyubey's doing is benevolent. He ''says'' the cycle of Magical Girls and Witches is to prevent the heat death of the universe, but that could easily just be him using big fancy words to sound important. [[FridgeHorror Then why might he really doing it?]] What does he get out of giving little girls magic powers then reabsorbing their energy after they've been consumed by despair? A better question might be [[{{Squick}} do we even want to know?]]
