* Van's EleventhHourSuperpower moment against Dilandau's unit starts off like a typical [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome moment]]... [[SubvertedTrope until it cuts to how Dilandau is seeing it-]] one by one, his unit is brutally cut down, despite having every advantage going for them. Eventually, only Dilandau is left, tentatively and uselessly calling out to his dead comrades for support, facing down a now-godlike soldier who can and ''will'' kill him without batting an eye, with a surprisingly [[TearJerker heart-wrenching expression]] of [[http://artoki.co.uk/slayground/pictures/slayercaps/Dilandau128.htm abject shit-your-pants ''terror'']] on his face, [[spoiler: [[http://artoki.co.uk/slayground/pictures/slayercaps/Dilandau129.htm even as he's escaping]].]] It's a particularly chilling moment.
*** Van during this whole time turned into a [[TheBerserker total berserker]] that's even more bloodthirsty than Dilandau.
** Later, Van has a NearDeathExperience after seeing the ghosts of the dragon slayers he just killed, and Hitomi has to mentally dive in to save him.
*** And just before all that, viewers are treated to a BodyHorror [[http://www.100megspopup.com/catgurlmerle/hurtbustingout.jpg scene]] [[spoiler: with Van bleeding to death as a price for becoming one with Escaflowne; so if the latter gets damaged, well, just take a guess...]]
* Dornkirk's naked body... that is all. Could also fall under FanDisservice or BodyHorror.
