* Even without going into the infamous MOMO scene, Albedo qualifies on his own. [[LaughingMad A laughing]] [[AxCrazy lunatic]] that can [[FromASingleCell regenerate from his own injuries, and has no qualms about]] ''[[FromASingleCell ripping his own fucking head off!]]'' (Yes, this has been mentioned before, but it bears repeating.) Add his horrible {{Hannibal Lecture}}s, and disturbing, EXTREMELY disturbing interactions with [[BreakTheCutie MOMO]] that has none-too-subtle [[MindRape allusions to rape]], and the fact he wavers between [[CainAndAbel wanting to kill Jr.]] and [[FoeYay sniffing his hair while strangling him]]. It's generally agreed that the English version of Albedo is much, much more terrifying than the Japanese version, thanks to some ill-thought out censoring and Voice-acting skills presenting Albedo as much more unhinged. Thank Crispin Freeman (the voice of Albedo and Alucard from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''), who traumatized a good portion of people who played ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' for the first time. There's a reason Game Informer put Albedo on the "Top 10 Villains" that year.

* There's that one scene, thankfully only shown in a couple half-second flashes, of Febrona's corpse being eaten by a horde of mutants (One of which you later meet as a [[ThatOneBoss That One]] BonusBoss). Nothing is shown, just the mutants in a big huddle, the horrible, horrible chewing sounds, and Febrona's head jerking randomly as they tear at her body...

* The first episode of the series features a scene in which the main antagonist Albedo (who is truly one of the most insane and horrifying villains in video games) after murdering a whole score of little (humanoid robot) girls and scattering them across his room, traumatizes a little (humanoid robot) girl by sawing off his own arm and head in front of her. And then [[MindRape mind-raping her]]... leaving her a mindless doll, apparently. To make this worse? In the Japanese release, he cuts his head off. In the US release, this is censored.... To ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95mwIi8lVHQ ripping it off with no assistance.]]'' Also, note that, after ripping off his head and ''speaking through it'', he stomps on it. Ew.

** The beginning of Episode 1 really sets up how horrific gnosis can be as they massacre the crew of the ship you just spent 2 or 3 hours walking around. Until KOS-MOS' CMOA, no one even manages to touch them, while the AGWS units and cannons outside of the ship are dwindled down to nothing, and internally the foot-soldiers and realians are crushed, turned to crystal and shattered, and thrown about in a bloody mess, with only AGWS units being able to stand against them and even then just barely as the AGWS can ''possess'' some of AGWS units.

Added DiffLines:

** Allusions to rape? The entire scene is played out as if it ''was'' an actual rape scene in all of its horror.

* The concept of the U-Do, itself: [[spoiler:An alien being (he's actually God, sent into the Heroes' realm as a child and later, a flying Ark) that spies on the whole of humanity, even though he does it for scientific reasons more than anything.]]
* At the end of Episode III, [[spoiler: chaos' consciousness resides within the dilapidated remains of Kos-Mos and is floating in space; considering that he has lived at least 7000 years already, he doesn't seem to mind that much]].

* Gnosification tends to be rather nightmareish.

** In Episode III there's a brief glimpse of Kevin's mom gnosified as he escapes the planet.
** Episode I also has the gnosified humans stored within the Durandal

* One of the most frightening about Albedo is how ''convincingly'' insane he is. Most "crazy" villains are just exceedingly vicious sociopaths; Albedo's constant stream of half-coherent babble, biblical allusions, and bizarre figures of speech goes a long way towards making him seem not just violent and cruel, but ''completely batshit crazy.''

* Albedo's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEVbGNtNtqU&feature=plcp theme]] from the first game. It's creepy enough as it is, but mixed in with the MindRape scenes with MOMO, and it becomes flat out terrifying.
