* The manner in which Protoman dies in "Hope Rides Alone." He's literally torn apart as an impassive crowd watches. The music video on the website shows him getting hit so hard his jawbone shatters, he has an arm chopped off, and has his ''face'' electrocuted, creating the image of a skull.

* In live versions of "The Sons of Fate", even if the banter beforehand is silly, they play the song itself straight. Including Protoman waving a gatling gun in your face, the crowd that you're a part of calling for his death, and Wily's orders to kill them all.
** And in the song itself, Megaman tried so desperately to convince Protoman to not fight, ultimately failing as he kills his brother - [[MoralEventHorizon as the crowd cheers him on as their hero and wonders why he cries.]] After a DarkReprise of the chorus from The Will of One, right as the crowd finishes praising him [[HeroicBSOD he snaps]] with a CallBack to ''Hope Rides Alone'' before [[DownerEnding leaving humanity to be ripped apart by Wily's robots.]]

* Wily's takeover in "The Hounds."Hounds" ends on this note in the liner notes, and is all about him cementing his rule by painting Light as a monster and taking over every form of media the City has so none can speak against him.

* The Sniper managed to keep the entire City in line through fear alone. It killed Emily and nearly chokes Joe to death.
** And in the music video, another robot drags a man out of a [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Protomen concert]] for seemingly no reason and promptly beats him to the brink of death, repeatedly punching his face until the man's a limp, bloodied mess.

* As Dr. Light speaks in the beginning of "Here Comes the Arm," there's high-pitched, siren-like synthesizer waves representing Wily's control-and that the building is about to come down on his head.

* The Queen album insert is an homage to the Queen II art and a representation of both Acts, showing the main players and symbolism of gears, wires, and helmets. What makes it scary are the details, like Joe's body, a noose around Light's neck, Emily's visage in the sky, metallic hands circling the City, and Wily moving the gears forward as Light struggles to hold them back.
