Added DiffLines:

* CounterpartComparison: Clare is considered by many to be a gender-flipped of Guts, the main protagonist of the {{seinen}} ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', where ''Claymore'' is pretty much [[JustForFun/XMeetsY a more shonen version of the former]]. Not only are their [[DarkAndTroubledPast backstories]], [[{{BFS}} arsenal]], [[{{Revenge}} goals]], and [[AntiHero personalities]] alike (hey! They're even [[BadassTransplant using an arm that isn't theirs!]]), just look at how similar their arch nemeses are! Anyone care for a [[NighInvulnerability nigh invulnerable]], [[WingedHumanoid winged]] (or [[CapeWings wing-caped]]), HumanoidAbomination who made an [[FallenHero epic fall from grace]] as their BigBad?

* JumpingTheShark: A lot of fans have put their hands up and walked away from the series at some point during the final battle against Priscilla. She kills interesting and likeable characters ([[WeHardlyKnewYe often soon after they're introduced and before they have the chance to be fleshed out]]), and she's so damn unkillable that it'll take an AssPull to finish her off.
** Perhaps an AssPull won't be needed after all, [[spoiler:as Teresa coming back was hinted at earlier in the story -- her presence inside of Clare was implied even as far back as Clare's first meeting with Miria, when Miria told Clare that Clare's rank bothered her because it had felt as if "the strongest was standing before [her]". Turns out that in a sense, it was true.]]

* FreudWasRight:
** Dauf stabs ladies in the stomach with giant poles he makes out of his body. [[{{Squick}} Classy.]]
** In Luciela's Awakened form, her whole body is covered in [[VaginaDentata mouths]].
** Luciela is downright ''SUBTLE'' compared to '''''[[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/claymore/v23/c134/9.html THIS.]]''''' Rivaled closely by Cassandra taking tentacles to a whole '''''[[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/claymore/images/c/c8/Cassandra4.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120201234848 new, horrifying, level.]]'''''



** A lot of the scenes where awakened beings are [[FreudWasRight suggestively impaling the claymores]] are very {{Squick}}y, especially in the [[BloodierAndGorier anime.]]

* MoralEventHorizon: One could rationalize the Organization's actions as those of a collective KnightTemplar WellIntentionedExtremist (lost sight of the goals, may need to go down, but at least thinking they serve some use), [[spoiler:then it's revealed they're the ones ''creating'' the Yoma]].

** [[spoiler: With the revelation that Yoma are actually {{Body Surf}}ing parasites instead of monsters disguising themselves as their victims, yes.]]



*** [[spoiler:At least she was [[DyingAsYourself satisfied]] when her final time came.]]
** WoobieSpecies: All the Claymores were orphans who were unwillingly put through painful and life threatening surgery so that they could fight man-eating monsters. Even the strongest ones don't get to live very long.
*** We get mention of "failed warriors making it into the ranks", like Clarice. The only shock other Claymores display is that they "let one in," not that a "failed" warrior existed, which raises the question of just how many "failed" warriors never make it past training, and what happens to them...
*** A bonus chapter reveals that a final test for each batch of Claymores involves a life-or-death situation, and only the ones who live pass the test. So at least we know what happens to those who fail the final test, but still no insight to the rest of the TrainingFromHell...

* GodModeSue: Priscilla. [[spoiler: She's so incredibly powerful that no one can beat her, that even a piece of her arm is enough to possess Abyssal level Awakened Beings, and she hasn't lost a. Single. Battle.]] Gets quite annoying how the goal Clare had set for herself is unattainable with these odds.
** Lets make it clear: she's making ''[[Manga/{{Naruto}} Madara fucking Uchiha]]'' have a harder time against opponents than Priscilla does. Priscilla even survives ''being cut up into tiny chunks''! To clarify: [[spoiler:while pretty much all of the characters have been sliced and diced in some way at one point or another, Priscilla's ''head'' is also sliced into tiny chunks. And somehow she manages to get to Cassandra's corpse, at least a good hundred feet or more away, and start chowing down. Despite having been in bite-sized pieces.]] [[FlatWhat What]].
*** [[spoiler:And she has NOTHING on Teresa, who is taking easy defeating her and gives Priscilla plenty of room for more power ups instead of killing her on the spot, because no matter what Priscilla does, Teresa is shown to be superior to her.]]

* VillainSue: After many contenders, the true Villain Sue can only be, without a doubt, Priscilla.



** Cassandra, a ShrinkingViolet who has, by chance, discovered a technique that she loathed but which propelled her to #1 of her generation. The only person who didn't loathe or fear her, [[spoiler:the nameless #35, was killed in a disgusting, brutal, and completely senseless manner due to a certain ManipulativeBitch's machinations]]. ''Then'', she was bloodily executed by her fellow Claymores. And on top of that, she was resurrected, brainwashed, sicked on her fellow warriors, and [[spoiler:eventually awakened, tricked to fight Priscilla--only to be devoured by her just as the Ghosts seemed to have offed her for good]].
