** A protest group in ''Cannon Fodder'' is arguing against the use of hazardous materials in the gunpowder used to fire the shells. The father who works at one of the enormous guns is later reprimanded (for something that was even his fault) and forced to stand within the firing chamber that is normally evacuated but for one operator, ''without his mask on''. Given how pallid and haggard the art style makes everyone look, it adds more horror with the ForeverWar slowly killing its population from within (for no reason at all).
