* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler: Mary. Clearly mentally disturbed, and tries to murder Ib and Garry, but genuinely wants Ib as a friend. She also has NothingPersonal against Garry- she just wants him to replace her in the gallery so she can go free. In one of the endings she [[CosmicRetcon becomes Ib's]] [[CheerfulChild cheerful hyperactive sister,]] and in another decides to play with Ib, Garry, and the dolls in the art gallery. Forever.]]

** If you are on an ending path where Garry [[spoiler:survives]], he refuses to leave until you've investigated the room [[spoiler:that is blocked off by vines]]. Going into said room [[spoiler:-- which happens to be Mary's room --]] leads to [[spoiler:Mary]] trying to attack, and you have no option but to [[spoiler:kill Mary or else get a Game Over]].

*** Although, given that [[spoiler: Mary has tried to kill you and kills Garry in a few of the endings, this could be seen as LaserGuidedKarma.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Although [[spoiler: Mary [[EnfantTerrible wasn't the nicest person anyway,]] so [[LaserGuidedKarma no big loss.]]]]


Added DiffLines:

*** And, since [[spoiler: Mary tried to kill you and kills Garry in some other endings, you could say [[LaserGuidedKarma her fate, if sad, was deserved.]]]]

** Even worse is the possibility that [[spoiler: [[KickTheDog Mary intentionally did this to keep Ib from remembering Garry.]]]]

* TheBadGuyWins: In two of the endings: "Together Forever," where [[spoiler: Mary escapes the gallery and [[CosmicRetcon becomes Ib's sister,]] while leaving Garry trapped;]] and "Welcome to the World of Guertera," where [[spoiler: she stays behind with Ib and Garry (who have been driven to near-catatonic insanity) and subjects them to eternal playtime with her and her [[CreepyDoll creepy dolls.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

** The BonusDungeon itself seems like it's building up to some grand revelation or a final twist- like getting to meet the spirit of Guertera himself- but no such thing happens. Other than [[spoiler: an additional ending]] and the key to another bonus area, there is no big reward.
** The FinalBoss has a whole lot of buildup, [[ZeroEffortBoss but is beaten in seconds-]][[spoiler: just burn the painting and Mary dies.]]


Added DiffLines:

* BigBad: [[spoiler: Either [[CreepyChild Mary]] or [[GeniusLoci the Cursed Gallery itself,]] depending on your interpretation.]]

'''''Ib''''' is a horror adventure game released by Kouri in February 2012, using VideoGame/RPGMaker 2000. It follows the experiences of a nine-year-old girl named Ib who visits an art gallery with her parents. While looking around, she finds herself stuck in a strange, surreal world where the art has come to life. What's worse, Ib's life is now linked to that of a red rose she picks up, and if all the petals fall she will die.

** Becomes a bit of a tearjerker in [[spoiler:the "Together Forever" ending, where Mary eats the candy after she and Ib leave the gallery eliminating the one thing left over from Ib's time in the alternate gallery that could've helped her remember both the struggles she went through, and Garry's sacrifice.
