* HellIsThatNoise: [[spoiler: "Ribbit... ribbit..."]]
** After episode 15, any [[spoiler: chiseling sound]] may make you want to curl up in a ball and die. Poor, ''poor'' [[spoiler: Yuri]].
** On the musical side of things, the eight-note theme that plays whenever things are about to get creepy is remarkably effective at getting a Pavlovian fear response out of viewers.

* YokoOhNo: Three girls who were dumped by Kanba (Asami, Yui and Chizuru) form a club named "Heart-Broken Victims of Takakura Kanba Assocation". As such, Yui and Chizuru corner Kanba at some point, asking him if he has a new girlfriend or a girl has taken their places in his heart. [[spoiler: Then, local ActionGirl Masako then shows up and [[LaserGuidedAmnesia wipes their memories away]]... just like she did to an hospitalized Asami right beforehand.]]

** Let's face it, between this trope and JerkassWoobie, almost ''[[WorldOfWoobie everyone]]'' in this show could qualify.

** Averted in the case of the in-story famous Takarazuka actress Yuri Tokikago, who is dating Kanba and Shoma's teacher Keiju Tabuki and hasn't had problems coming from fans as far as the story shows. [[spoiler: This doesn't change when they get engaged, Yuri announces that she will retire soon from acting and Tabuki moves into her BigFancyHouse. The only one really objecting is Ringo... and well, this is Ringo we're talking about.]]

* FreudWasRight: During the Seizon Senryaku sequence, something long and pink shoots from the base of the Princess of the Crystal's bear into Shouma and Kanba's.
** The [[spoiler: chisels]] owned by [[spoiler: Yuri's dad]] are other examples. [[{{Squick}} The less said, the better]]

* MemeticBadass: Kanba is already {{badass}} enough in-story, but his 4chan fans take his badassery even further. Because this guy will punch gods and goddesses and kick whatever/whoever is on his way [[MemeticMutation FOR HIMARI'S SAKE!]]

* InternetBackdraft: Go to [[ImageBoards /a/.]] Hop into a MP thread. Mention the "Is Shouma a potential CuteAndPsycho?" theory. Watch the thread dissolve in a FlameWar between those who support it and those who don't.

* HilariousInHindsight: The whole BrotherSisterIncest between Himari and Kanba becomes totally hilarious by episode 21. Why? [[spoiler: Because not only they turn out to be NotBloodSiblings (though Himari had amnesia in regards to that), but then we learn that Kanba's ClingyJealousGirl Masako is Kanba's real sister (and his ''twin''), ''and they knew it all the time''. ]] Meaning, [[spoiler: the pairing that many people shunned due to incest, it wasn't incestuous in the end. And the [[FanPreferredCouple "alternate" pairing]] that some people shipped [[SelectiveSquick to not fall into BSI?]] ''Surprise incest''!]]

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnFemale: ''Penguindrum'' has the adult [[spoiler:Yuri]]'s attempted rape of [[spoiler:Ringo]], an underage sixteen-year old girl. On one hand, the rape isn't exactly portrayed as ''okay'', and it's made clear that the rapist is a messed-up person. However, the rape is used to develop the rapist's character and segue into the rapist's backstory, which gives off the vibe of rationalizing and excusing her actions, whereas the victim is reduced to a mere prop and has an uncomfortable amount of MaleGaze fanservice applied to her -- which ''may'' have been intended as FanDisservice, but the sheer exploitative nature of it makes the claim fall flat. The details of the rape are inconsistent from one episode to the next, with the rape being portrayed as rape one episode and as a titillating seduction in the next, and whether or not the rapist actually went through with it or not is ambiguous; the rescue attempt is played for comedy, and only happens due to a hideous amount of contrivity. Furthermore, the victim is completely unaffected by the ordeal and the rapist gets off with absolutely no repercussions for her actions, and the whole scene affects practically ''nothing'' in the grand scheme of the story and is quickly forgotten afterwards, save for being the subject of a brief joke a couple of episodes later, wasting a lot of character and story potential on top of everything else; in fact, the scene could be completely cut out of the story with little to no loss. The shoddy handling of the scene really smacks of the writers writing themselves into a corner and hastily retconning the story in an attempt to fix it, and given all the above, it's no surprise that some viewers consider this part of ''Penguindrum'' to be one of the lowest points in the series.
