* UnfortunateImplications: [[spoiler: Graham is the only dark skinned character that turns out to be the villain of the series...and he ends up failing what he intended to do.]]

* CompleteMonster: Despite having a lot of despicable characters in the game, [[spoiler: Edward]] tops them all. Let's see...manipulating a sixteen (now seventeen) year old into joining your group only planning to [[KicktheDog sacrifice him]] when he [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness lost his usefulness]], check. Almost killing another teenager when he figures out the secret toward your bank, check. [[spoiler: Killing the lovable history teacher when he finds out who is the cause of all the suicides...double check.]] To add to that [[spoiler: there are some hints in the game that Edward might have done [[RapeasDrama worse things]] to Hibiki than he lets on.]]
** [[spoiler: Graham]] is one if you squint. Granted, most of his evil deeds are [[OffstageVillainy seen offscreen]] but he's definitely as corrupt as [[spoiler: Edward]]. However, he's the one responsible for [[spoiler: Kagami and Hidaka's deaths.]]
** [[SadisticTeacher Yamato]] deserves a special mentioning. Taking your students hostage, shooting a certain someone in the shoulder for trying to defend his friend and then threaten to kill another character's little sister in the process. Yep...that's a monster.
** [[spoiler: Lt. Tanaka]] is clearly the most messed up of the bunch. For starters [[spoiler: he's a {{serial killer}} that has been [[StalkerWithaCrush stalking Mika for a long time.]] He hurts the people around her just to screw with her and he almost succeeded in killing (and possibly raping) her had it not been for Akira, Atsuki and Nami coming to her rescue. Unfortunately, he's the only one that Atsuki can read and his mind is messed up. He's so despicable that even Yui tries to kill him to avenge Mako.]]

* ViewerGenderConfusion: The translation is so sloppy that female characters sometimes get referred to as "he", and visa versa. Poor Mako gets the worst of it; although it's obvious from looking at her that she's a woman, she gets referred to as a guy so many times (especially on Yuzi's BBS) that some players have actually wondered if she was transgendered.

** ''"The entire point that Hibiki is trying to make is that the 'natural' world, without the artifices of Man, is superior to the world of violence that Man has created; this is patently ridiculous, as Man is really the only species that gives a damn about trying to maintain peace even when it's not advantageous, and that's thanks to the same parts of humanity that also give birth to sadness, anger, fear, and even hate (which are hardly petty reasons, and often spring from the fact that a person experienced things to make them sad, angry, afraid, or hateful). ... Atsuki's suspicious outlook during that scene is plot-related, a way to foreshadow that Hibiki is wrong about other things and being influenced by [[spoiler: Edward's]] beliefs. As we find out when Atsuki faces off with [[spoiler: Edward]], Atsuki's personal belief - for all that he seems apathetic - is the exact opposite of Hibiki's and [[spoiler: Edward's]], and why Atsuki's able to overcome the Big Bad at the end: He ultimately believes not in the power of fate but of flawed humans, the Mankind that Hibiki and [[spoiler: Edward (and to some extent Graham)]] disdained, whether or not those humans have powers. That's sort of the point of a large part of the game, including the scenes during the rioting/attack where we see the non-psychic characters calming the rioters, evacuating people to safety, and so on even while the mob and the soldiers demonstrate the 'bad' parts of Mankind."''

* FridgeBrilliance: On the discussion page, there was a debate on why Hibiki insisted that only humans killed their only kind. At first glance, it could be a huge case of research failure, but on further inspection, it would a case of {{Foreshadowing}} and FridgeBrilliance as quoted here.
