** Though not quite KillEmAll, [[spoiler:K's ending]] comes close, with bleak implications. [[spoiler: Alice succumbs to Radical-6. Luna is shut down by Zero Jr. Tenmyouji and Clover go missing, likely handcuffed to the infirmary sink. Dio is suffocated by K, destroying his bracelet. As a result, Phi and K are unable to successfully enter a Chromatic Door. Every living player but Quark is penalized, but Sigma injects Phi with neostigmine, saving her life. Phi and Quark survive, but will likely succumb to Radical-6.]

** [[spoiler:Alice and Sigma's]] endings result in KillEmAll due to [[Dio's bombs detonating the annihilation reactor.]] Ditto for many premature endings on [[spoiler:Phi's]] path.

Trying to add an explanation for why any non-true ending is by necessity a downer ending
Added DiffLines:
* DownerEnding: Almost every ending other than [[spoiler:Phi's]] is this for everyone but [[spoiler:[[MentalTimeTravel Phi and Sigma]]]]. This is usually due to some combination of [[spoiler:bombs, Radical-6]], Nonary Game penalties, and murder. ** [[spoiler:Alice and Sigma's]] endings result in KillEmAll due to [[Dio's bombs detonating the annihilation reactor.]] Ditto for many premature endings on [[spoiler:Phi's]] path. ** [[spoiler:Clover's]] ending is another KillEmAll, this time due to [[spoiler:Radical-6]]. [[spoiler: Alice, Tenmyouji, Sigma, Phi, Clover, and Dio succumb to Radical-6. Luna has been shut down next to their bodies, likely by Zero Jr. Neither Quark nor K is shown deceased, through both would likely die from the penalty after not entering a Chromatic Door]]. ** Though not quite KillEmAll, [[spoiler:K's ending]] comes close, with bleak implications. [[spoiler: Alice succumbs to Radical-6. Luna is shut down by Zero Jr. Tenmyouji and Clover go missing, likely handcuffed to the infirmary sink. Dio is suffocated by K, destroying his bracelet. As a result, Phi and K are unable to successfully enter a Chromatic Door. Every living player but Quark is penalized, but Sigma injects Phi with neostigmine, saving her life. Phi and Quark survive, but will likely succumb to Radical-6.] ** [[spoiler:Luna's]] ending. [[spoiler:Clover, Tenmyouji, Alice, Dio, and K all perish prior to the final AB round]]. Though [[spoiler:Phi and Quark]] escape Rhizome-9, they have no way to [[spoiler:get off the moon or cure their Radical-6. Luna is permanently shut down by Zero Jr., and Sigma is left alone to succumb to Radical-6]]. ** [[spoiler:Dio's]] ending, though less obviously than most. [[spoiler:Alice succumbs to Radical-6, and Luna is shut down by Zero Jr. Clover, Tenmyouji, K, and Quark are left behind, likely succumbing to Radical-6. Dio, Phi, and Sigma head towards what is likely an outpost of the Myrmidons, spelling almost certain death for Phi and Sigma]]. ** [[spoiler:Tenmyouji's]] ending. [[spoiler:Tenmyouji escapes with Quark and Clover...but only Quark has been treated for his Radical-6 infection. Alice has already succumbed to Radical-6, and the other human players (Sigma, Phi, K, and Dio) will likely succumb as well.]] The people who escape also have no way of [[spoiler:returning to Earth]] or contacting anyone, even ignoring the fact that [[spoiler:two-thirds of them have active Radical-6 infections]]. ** [[spoiler:Quark's]] ending. [[spoiler:Dio]] escapes, and [[spoiler:Sigma loses his arm]], but not everything seems bad at first. Then [[spoiler:Alice succumbs to Radical-6]]. Besides [[spoiler:Quark and Luna]], the remaining survivors will all die due to a lack of additional Axelavir.

moving trivia example
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[ExecutiveMeddling CERO bureaucracy aside]], there were some concepts Uchikoshi didn't/couldn't slip in such as [[spoiler: Dissipative system, Monty Hall problem, Gödel’s incompleteness theorems, Toxoplasmosis, Folie ŕ deux, Capgras delusion, Fregoli delusion, Sally–Anne test, and Project [=MKUltra=]]].

* DiabolusExMachina: The [[spoiler:first]] bad ending on Luna's Route. Most of the time, the bad end is triggered by someone else going for the #9 door while you get knocked out because no one trusts you, but at least there's someone with a reason to open it. In this one, the only one who reaches 9 points is [[spoiler:Quark, who's still unconscious, but Tenmyouji suddenly decides that he'd be willing to die by passing through the door as well and has Quark open it to escape.]]

** Though the real kicker is when [[spoiler:Alice, who you ''thought'' was incapacitated, somehow manages to betray you. If you picked betray, she chastises you for thinking you could get "an easy 2 points" (which is incorrect; picking betray only gets you 1 point more than picking ally if you know your opponent will ally) by betraying her. When Sigma tries to give her one of these back, noting that if he ''had'' picked ally, she would've killed him (as you only have 1 point at this point in time), she refuses to admit any wrongdoing because she "knew you'd betray). And yes, that is one of the few occasions where the usual bad ending/good ending dynamic for the second AB game is reversed--she still votes betray if you vote ally, and get a bad ending.]]
