* EveryoneIsSatanInHell: [[http://ferretbrain.com/articles/article-411?mobile One review savaged this game]] for its false sense of choice (if you go off the path, terrible things happen... but if you don't, nothing happens) and the therefore (supposedly) implied lesson that women can't deviate from the straight and narrow in life without suffering terrible consequences.

* {{Squick}}: When the Werewolf walks around, if you look closely, you can see patches of fur falling off him. It still happens after [[spoiler: Robin jumps on his back]].

* FanNickname: "[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]]" for [[spoiler: Scarlet]]'s wolf.



* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The girls appear to be very popular with Japanese online artists, which may be due to the fact that they were explicitly inspired by the work of Japanese artist Fuco Ueda.

* {{Sockpuppet}}: [[http://sternred.livejournal.com/1086.html Check the date stamps]]. The various sisters talk to each other with comments only 1 minute apart.
* UnfortunateImplications: One review ''savaged'' this game for its false sense of choice (if you go off the path, terrible things happen... but if you don't, ''nothing'' happens) and its implied lesson that women can't deviate from the straight and narrow in life or suffer terrible consequences.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: [[spoiler:Scarlet's wolf.]] It's fairly easy to get confused. WordOfGod names it "Fey Wolf", which... doesn't help much.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IW8VIhJdJ0o "The Forest Theme"]] is spooky, but not spookier than the rest of the soundtrack. And then you get to the last minute...

** The sisters [[spoiler: each encountering their own wolf]] can very easily cross into {{Adult Fear}} situations. In particular, [[spoiler: Robin's]] and [[spoiler: Carmen's]].

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Interestingly enough, [[spoiler:Ginger's harrowing]] is perhaps the ''only'' happy moment in the entire game. Not that it ends well.
** Did anyone else go d'awwww when you saw Robin [[spoiler:jump on her wolf's back and get a piggyback ride from it]]?
** If you let the Girl in White lead you back to the path, once you're there, she will hug you tightly before disappearing back into the forest.



* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory: A mindset necessary to the enjoyment of the game.
** Taken quite literally by some; one of the interpretations is that the Girl in White symbolizes Jesus, and Grandmother's house is... guess what?

* FridgeHorror: [[spoiler: Three of the "wolves" are (or are in the form of) adult men, and combined with the imagery of broken or impaled beds at Grandmother's house, and the girl in the dog tent at the Woodsman's camp, the goal of the game has been interpreted as having each girl be raped]]. The game files refer to it more as [[spoiler:murder]]. [[WorldOfSymbolism Although it's most likely not happening literally,]] [[spoiler:and they come back at the end.]]



* {{Narm}}: Given the general tone of the game it's kind of hard to take Robin's wolf seriously when [[spoiler: she starts riding on top of it like a pony.]]

* TearJerker: Some of the girls are terribly troubled, and some of the things you have them do are so wrong that you can't help but feel sorry for them.
