** Hell, even [[spoiler: [[ManBehindTheMan Kyubey]]]] gets this: there are a good amount of fans who actually agree with [[spoiler: their [[WellIntentionedExtremist ends-justify-the-means mentality]]]] and see [[spoiler: [[AMillionIsAStatistic the sacrifice of human beings]]]] as [[spoiler: an [[ShootTheDog acceptable price to pay]] to save the universe from heat death]].

** She can also been seen as a comparison to [[VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine Walker]] as characters who want desperately to be heroes, but find that they can't reconcile their fantasies with reality. Both [[HeWhoFightsMonsters resort to increasingly disturbing violence against what they perceive to be "evil"]], [[spoiler:become consumed in madness, realise it far too late to undo what they'd done, and become warped, monstrous versions of the good people they used to be. In Walker's case, he's merely delusional, but in Sayaka's case, she [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie literally becomes a monstrosity]].]]

* MemeticMolester: There was a point of this trope here. A summary of previous entry: Homura is perceived as a stalker whose life revolves around Madoka. She wears Madoka's panties at her head while watching Madoka through hidden camera.

** Then there's [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2011-09-24/madoka-magica-kyoko-featured-on-guide-dog-poster this poster]] to raise awareness of training guide dogs featuring SelfDemonstrating/KyokoSakura. Even putting aside that they used a character that has absolutely nothing to do with service dogs ([[TheCape Sayaka]] would've been a better choice), the poster is to be displayed in elementary and middle schools. While it's a for a good cause, they probably be shouldn't be tying it into a series that is not kid-friendly.

** Episode 6: [[spoiler:Soul gems are {{Soul Jar}}s.]]
** Episode 8: [[spoiler:Homura is a time traveler and uses time-based powers]], [[spoiler:witches are fallen magical girls]], and [[spoiler:grief seeds are their former soul gems]], topping it off with [[spoiler:''Sayaka becoming a witch.'']]
** Episode 9: [[spoiler:Homura's powers manipulate time, and she is not from the present timeline.]]
** Episode 10: [[spoiler:The presence of time loops confirmed, along with the prologue of episode 1 being the endgame of one of the previous iterations.]]
** Episode 12: [[spoiler:Madoka's wish was to change the magical girl system.]]
** From the very beginning of the series there was speculation that [[spoiler:Kyubey is evil]]. Whether you [[ManipulativeBastard can say that]] or [[NecessarilyEvil not]] is left to the watcher's interpretation.

** The outside of Homura's house is reminiscent of a locale in the video game ''ShadowOfDestiny''. Some of the possible titles used before they settled on the final one were ''The Day and Night of Walpurgisnacht'', ''Days of Walpurgis'', and ''Time Adventure''. Sounds like a regular ShoutOut, no? The game is about a man who [[spoiler: travels back in time to prevent his death multiple times]], which it turns out is [[spoiler: very similar to what Homura is trying to do with Madoka]].

* AngstWhatAngst: Violently and intentionally averted. Unlike most MagicalGirl shows, where fighting evil is shown as an exciting adventure, this series deals head on with the consequences of children being forced into horrific circumstances. [[spoiler:A significant part of the fighting that characters do is in an attempt to avoid collapsing so thoroughly into sorrow that they lose their huk amity. Ultimately, their suffering is, for Kyubey and his species, the entire point]].
