** Due to their contracts, [[spoiler: they will '''never have a life beyond the witch hunt.''' The Puella Magi that lasted the longest before witching out was twenty when it happened. Assuming that she was fourteen, she lived six years before ''going irreparably insane, splitting her own soul open and vomiting its contents into a hell-dimension she created'' '''''out of pure rancorousness and acerbity.''''' They will never grow up. They will never lead a normal life. They will die before they can achieve anything in the real world, the world they protect and the world they gave their souls for. Sayaka was right; Magical Girls really are the living dead. It brings to mind a part of the description on Oktavia von Seckendorff's witch card:]]
--> ''Her fortune only turns under the weight of memories and no longer moves toward the future. Nothing will reach her any longer. She will come to know nothing more.''

* Oktavia giving out a blood-curdling shriek [[spoiler:in Sayaka's voice.]] The effect is both nightmarish and [[TorturedMonster tragic.]]

* Kyoko's surname is Sakura, or Cherry Blossom. Aside from the red motif there was a small piloted missile employed by the Japanese during WW2 nicknamed Cherry Blossoms that were used for Kamikaze attacks against American battleships. [[spoiler: Considering how Kyouko went out there's an odd parallel.]]

* It's bad (and horrifying) enough that ''[[spoiler:[[WorldWarII Anne Frank]]]]'' was a ''Puella Magi''. The theories that the Witch Uhrmann may have been a ''[[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman dog]]'' used in an Incubator experiment who just wanted love from humans [[HumansAreCthulhu and couldn't understand why people (and Incubators) did so many terrible things to her]] take this show's tear ([[NightmareFuel and fear]]) quotient [[SerialEscalation continually higher]] ([[FridgeHorror and makes you wonder about Urobuchi's mental landscape]]).

** Another standout moment from the scene? After Kyousuke breaks the CD, Sayaka tries to beg with him he cannot give up. His answer? He was ''told'' to give up, to not get his hopes up because there is no way he can play again, by none other than his past violin instructor and his doctor. They said it to save him the disappointment they saw as inevitable if he starts to believe he will regain the finesse in his fingers if he does his best at his therapy sessions, but it clearly took a huge toll on the boy. Enough so that the nurses in episode one say they are glad ''someone'' is at least visiting him because he is such a tough patient to deal with, implying he takes out his anger on them and that he gets no other visitors because he did the same to his family so they prefer to stay away to not upset him or themselves.

** Even worse, '''he blames her''' for providing him classical music to listen to, which is essentially '''mental torture''', constantly reminding him of his inability to play the violin. In anger, he smashes Sayaka's recently bought CD with his crippled hand. There is blood, but he says this:

** Even worse, '''he blames her''' for providing him classical music to listen to, which is he experiences as essentially '''mental torture''', torture''' and useless (in his words, how could he enjoy or why would he listen to music he desperately wants to play but cannot?), constantly reminding him of his inability to play the violin. Keep in mind that he was faking a smile about it previously most probably because he knew she meant no harm by it and her choice in music was due to the fact that he did like classical music before his accident rendered him unable to play, especially violin. In anger, he smashes Sayaka's recently bought CD with his crippled hand. There is blood, but he says this:
