''God''.

horrific. Both are humanoid, but are mostly comprised of tentacles. [[spoiler: The final form also has Mad Hatter's head in its mouth, and the Hatter head has ''Alice's'' head in its mouth]].

** To some, have such a long firing delay(Eyestaff) or completely exhausting what is essentially ammunition in one shot(Blunderbuss) brings it straight into AwesomeButImpractical territory.

--> '''I''' rule wonderland alone. Your interference will not be tolerated. This realm is for grown-ups. Raw, well-ordered, ruthless, careening on the jagged edge of reality. Self-pitying ''dreamers'' are not wanted here. They cannot survive here. You fear the truth. You live in shadows. Your pathetic attempts to reclaim your sanity have failed. Retreat to the sterile safety of your self-delusions or risk inevitable annihilation. If you destroy me, you destroy yourself. Leave now and some hollow part of you ''may'' survive. Stay, and I will break you ''down''. You will lose yourself. '''FOREVER'''.

The game itself is an early action adventure, with Alice using a variety of [[ImprobableWeaponUser deadly toys to kill the inhabitants]] trying to destroy her and solving a number of puzzles along the way. The soundtrack is particularly notable, created by NineInchNails member Chris Vrenna with exclusively Victorian instruments and toys.

%% commented out as dual trope entry * ExpositionFairy / StopHelpingMe: The Cheshire Cat. Less annoying than other examples since you actually have to summon his help but, the character's eponymous quirks being what they are, his "help" is often enigmatic to the point of uselessness.

* BloodlessCarnage: Compared to the bloody violence throughout the rest of the game, the [[spoilers: White Rabbit's]] death from [[spoilers: being crushed by the Mad Hatter's foot]] is surprisingly lacking in gore. Arguably, this serves to make the scene even ''more'' disturbing.

* RuleOfSymbolism: LOTS. Most major characters that Alice encouters and many of the locations represent someone or something that caused her madness or something she encountered after being driven insane. Some examples include the Vorpal Blade, which is the spoon used to feed her at the asylum (which she had tried to use as a weapon in one brief time that she was conscious) and the Land of Fire and Brimstone, which symbolizes the fire that destroyed her house. Boss enemies and some monsters represent employees and patients at the asylum or figures from her past.
