* The Anti-Spirals. A HiveMind with [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien god-like powers]] that has committed [[OmnicidalManiac the near-omnicide of Spirals]], their rap sheet includes: ripping off [[MajorasMask Majora's]] [[ColonyDrop moon trick]]; having digital drones that can ZergRush you: inserting [[ManchurianAgent Messengers]] within every Spiral Race that [[ParanoiaFuel don't even know of their true nature until the time is right and could be ANYONE, even one of your loved ones]]; being able to trap their enemies in alternate realities that can be their greatest dream or (presumable, even though it never happened in the series) their worst nightmare; and they have an avatar who looks like [[SlenderMan Slendy]] that has naughty tentacles and isn't afraid to use them. Oh, and the scariest thing about them? [[WellIntentionedExtremist They think they're doing the right thing]], [[KnightTemplar even as they cross the]] MoralEventHorizon over and over and over again. The only thing that prevents them from being one of the most depraved people in all of fiction is that they are truly convinced that they're the good guys; even then, that may not be enough to redeem them. Why? Because instead of just taking the easy way out and using their god tier powers to KillEmAll in one blow, they prefer to defeat their enemies by sending them over the DespairEventHorizon - and they [[EvilFeelsGood enjoy it]].

*The [[LotusEaterMachine Extradimensional Labyrinth]] as a whole. Being trapped in an infinite series of parallel universes until your body and/or mind dies? Combine that with the fact that you're ''completely unaware that you're dreaming''. That's valid cause for paranoia.

* Although it mainly doubles as a TearJerker, Rossiu attempting to... [[spoiler:commit suicide]]... was something. This troper here didn't expect it coming especially since this is an action mecha anime.

* The results of Simon's HeroicBSOD following Kamina's death. Seeing the CuteShotaroBoy turn into TheBerserker who vanquishes {{Mooks}} with a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, and is channeling so much UnstoppableRage that his mech actually [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything pukes]] [[DrowningMySorrows and shuts down]] is... rather unsettling, to say the least.

* Also: "Don't touch that or I'll ''GOBBLE YOU UP!''"



* The Ashtanga can be rather creepy. Listen to the distorted scream one lets out in Episode 26 right before its faces contort hideously and it fires a volley of planet-sized misssles.
* One of the alternate universe music videos features a naked Gimmy running around playing ''kancho'' (shoving his fingers up everyone's ass) to steal their clothes. Although it offers you a chance to see Yoko topless and uncensored to boot, there's one thing about the video that needed to be covered up... and it wasn't. When it opens in, you see a swishing set of lines like sand dunes. Then the screen pans out... and it's actually Gimmy's penis. Try getting that out of your head. And you thought [[NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji's]] happy time scene in ''End'' was bad!



* The scene where we see the AS ships with faces all over them, and said faces suddenly open their mouths and eyes real wide and start firing missiles out of the former.
