** Actually, it's not that bad. They most likely didn't have to literally stay underground all the time, just not to reveal their survival to other districts. And the surface isn't radioactive or anything, it just makes more sense to live underground than among the ruins.

-> Katniss: [[spoiler: No mutt is good. All are meant to damage you. Some take yor life, like the monkeys. Others your reason, like the tracker jackers. However, the true atrocities, the most frightening, incorporate a perverse psychological twist designed to terrify the victim. The sight of the wolf mutts with the dead tributes' eyes. The sound of the jabberjays replicating Prim's tortured screams. The smell of Snow's roses mixed with the victim's blood.]]

* It's haunting how everything just slows to a halt when in Mockingjay Part II [[spoiler: the parachutes fall from the sky. In the Hunger Games, parachutes mean supplies. The children stick their hands up in the sky, reaching for them, some of them smiling perhaps, it's so sinister because of that hope they gave those kids on top of everything. You can hear them exclaim 'gifts' surprised and elated. Everything looks like it's looking up for them. Then a flash and a bang and everyone's on the ground. Katniss barely stands up and notices her sister amidst the chaos. She calls out to her and her sister notices her and before she can even do anything it goes dark. Katniss couldn't save her sister. None of those people could save their kids. And nobody saw it coming. The entire saga started with Katniss volunteering in the place of her sister to save her from near-certain death and after four movies, after going through all these horrors, the end seemed so close, she was finally going to get vengeance for Rue and for herself and her sister and all the other children. She was there to stop the murder of children. To prevent the Hunger Games from happening ever again. And as she was about to take those final steps... to meet her destiny, when Bam, hundred children dead in a flash. Bam, her sister gone too. She was so close from having the ending she deserved. Everything was so close to being fine.]]

*There's a deleted scene in Catching Fire where Plutarch goes into a room with lots of little cubby holes, goes to one, pulls out the paper inside, and replaces it with another. That CONFIRMS that the third Quarter Quell was not originally supposed to be a victors game. What makes the scene even worse is that there are HUNDREDS of these cubby holes around. The Capitol had centuries, if not MILLENIA of Hunger Games planned.

** The mutts were scary period. Not just the moment they appeared.

* The Hunger Games in general. These children finish High School with approximately 12 less school-mates. Haymitch is the only District 12 Victor alive in 74 years which means District 12 lost 147 children to the Hunger Games. And the 12 districts have lost a total of 1,725 children. This is in a country ravaged by war.. In fact we only have the hunger games because the districts rebelled in the first place and no doubt they would have suffered great losses. If 23 children are murdered every year that certainly shallows out the gene pool.

If 23 children are murdered place. Can you imagine being forced into servitude, then as further punishment every year that certainly shallows you see 2 children from your district die. Would you want to have kids then? How many families died out this way? How many only-children got reaped? How many families had their entire family reaped? And consider when they get those parachutes in the gene pool.arena. They're not just saying "I hope you survive". They're basically saying "I hope everyone else dies".


Added DiffLines:

* FridgeHorror when you realize that since the first rebellion was quashed and District 13 went underground it has been 74 years of them keeping a low profile. That means there may be people in District 13, living in that bunker, who have never seen the sun or walked on Earth. There could be 73 year olds in there that never felt the sun rays on their face.

** FridgeHorror when you realize that Katniss was a hair's breath away from becoming Johanna or Finnick. If Peeta died in the first games, [[spoiler: Snow would try to prostitute her the first chance he gets. After all he needs to break her spirit and she's very popular]]. And on top of that, in the future she'd have to be mentoring children just like Haymitch. Every other district probably has 2 or more previous victors mentoring. District 12 only had 1 winner untill Katniss came along so regardless of her wishes she'd probably enter the mentoring program and watch the kids she trained die year after year like Haymitch did. And what if her sister got reaped again? Or what if one of Rue's younger siblings got reaped? What if she trained the person that would ultimately end up killing someone she loves?

* A subtler form of NightmareFuel: Seeing a boy in the Capitol being given a toy sword in the Hunger Games. The people at the capital have come to see these horrendous Games as mere entertainment, not by advanced drugs or brainwashing, but by [[ParanoiaFuel mundane methods that we see everyday: parents teaching their children the way the world works]]. The Capitol isn't protected from the {{Dystopia}} outside, it's the core.

** If so is Prim getting reaped just luck or was it planned as punishment for her family hunting?
