* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Many, but [[spoiler: Eve Moonlit]] deserves a special mention. [[spoiler: How much of her AxCrazy tendencies in Moonlit Bear came from the {{Lunacy}} and how much from her own deranged psyche? She had been given a brainwashing drug for at least a few months before Project [MA] failed, and who knows what side effects it could have carried. Also, the Evils Kingdom Booklet states her obsession with having children tainted her with the original sin, [[FridgeHorror and in Project [MA] she's seen with insecurities about being a mother until Adam convinces her it's alright]].]]
** The ending narration of ''Gift From Princess Sandman'' invites the viewers to ask themselves if Margarita was a product of her environment or if she was brainwashed by Irina/Julia.
* BaseBreaker: The Daughter of Evil manga has a lot of fans complaining that it didn't put anything new in, and that [[MemeticMutation it wasn't the Wrath song.]]
* CrackPairing: Platonic/Arte is very popular, strangely enough.
** There's been official art of Riliane/Banica.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Many, but most fans agree that ''RE_Birthday'' is the biggest example.
** Or the Duke being [[spoiler: stabbed by Kaito in a dress.]]
** [[spoiler: Riliane]] and [[spoiler: Germaine]] working together to save Yukina from [[spoiler: Abyss I. R.]] in the novel ''Prefazio of Blue''.
** Conchita [[spoiler:''[[HijackingCthulhu eating]]'' [[HijackingCthulhu the Demon of Gluttony]]]].
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In the ''Daughter of Evil'' novel, Elluka has this to say about Michaela wanting to be human:
-->'''Elluka''': AH~!! THAT'S ENOUGH!! WHY ARE EVERYONE OF YOU IDIOTS??!! YOU, RILLIANNE, THE KING OF MARLON, ALLEN, AND LEONHART ARE ALL THE SAME!! EVERYONE ARE SUPER ULTRA IDIOTS!!!
** [[OverprotectiveDad Keel beating the crap out of Kyle for being alone with Yukina, assuming that Kyle was making a move on her.]]
** In the first novel, ''every single conversation'' in which Allen gets to hear about "[[InsistentTerminology The very Amazing Spring Onion/Octopus]]" is hilarious. And they always answer the same way!
-->'''Allen''': What part of it is amazing?
-->'''Elluka''': '''''Everything about it is very, very amazing!'''''
-->'''Allen (thinking)''': [[LampshadeHanging I've been hearing this argument a lot lately.]]
** A MetaExample would be the entire comments section on [[http://theevilliouschronicles.wikia.com/wiki/Rajih Rajih's page]] on [[TheWikiRule the wiki]]. To say more would spoil it.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Loads of 'em.
** The simplest example would be the end of ''To the Reticent You''
-->'''Rin''': There is no need for words anymore/That is what I thought/I knew it this is happiness/[[spoiler: You told me that you love me]]
** The duet part in ''Maiden of Wood ~1000-Year Wiegenlied~''.
*** Speaking of Michaela and Clarith, their [[spoiler: [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120423210506/theevilliouschronicles/images/b/b3/55371772201103231828261116663214511_015.jpg reunion and final declaration of love]]]] in the novels. [[YuriFan Awww!]]
** ''South North Story'' in its entirety, pretty much.
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUzLciZiLVY Kept Waiting for a Response]]''. All of it. [[TearJerker *Sniff*]]
** The scene in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QykKSkt_KZ0 Escape of Salmhofer the Witch]]'', where Meta resolves to protect her children [[spoiler: from being experimented on]] is very touching.
** Clarith's reason for not killing Riliane:
-->'''Clarith''': When I looked at that girl, crying all alone
--> [[NotSoDifferent I saw the girl that I used to be]]
** Kachess' reaction to Yufina going missing is to [[spoiler: search almost every country to find any form of evidence as to were she went, then disguise himself as a woman to sneak into the Duke's harem and ''kill'' the guy to save her]]. Talk about dedication!
** A really, really [[NightmareFuel disturbing]] one in the Conchita novel. [[spoiler: The reason Conchita ate herself? [[MamaBear She ate herself rather than eating her child.]]]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Pretty much all of the songs, really.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Duke Venomania is infamous for this, since despite brainwashing,kidnapping and raping countless women, there are some fan girls who want to willingly join his harem at their own free will due [[FreudianExcuse feeling bad for his troubled past]], and [[HandsomeDevil being handsome]], and....did we mention that he's really handsome?
** While it has died down a bit, there was a small fraction of the fandom that insisted that [[{{Yandere}} Kayo Sudou]] was stressed out and overworked and just looking for someone to comfort her. This apparently justified her murdering three people out of spite and then killing the man she claimed to love because he didn't feel the same way about her.
** While Allen isn't exactly the embodiment of evil, there are plenty of fans who like to ignore his less sympathetic qualities (looking down on/ignoring anyone he doesn't happen to like, killing his own adoptive father to appease his sister, etc.) and focus exclusively on his tragic woobie status. In extreme cases, they'll go on to [[RonTheDeathEater demonize Riliane]] and blame her for the whole thing, despite the fact that Allen carried a lot of her underhanded deeds by his own choice.
* EarWorm: '''''SO MANY'''''. The "Lu, Li, La" part of the Clockwork Lullaby series is pretty much guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Many. [[NiceGuy Rajih]], [[FailOSuckyName Neruneru]], [[BadassAdorable Chartette]], and, of course, [[IncrediblyLamePun Josephine]].
* EvilIsCool / TrueArtIsAngsty: Mothy has written some songs that are actually pretty adorable (''Ten-Minute Love'', ''To The Reticent You'', ''South North Story'' and ''[=TwiRight=] Prank'') but he's most well known for writing [[TearJerker tragic]], [[MindScrew mind screwy]] and NightmareFuel filled stuff about [[VillainProtagonist horrible people]], [[AnyoneCanDie people dying]], or [[KarmicDeath horrible people dying]].
* FanDisservice / FetishRetardant: ''Madame Merry Go-Round''; Miku in ElegantGothicLolita, chaining herself up and claiming that she'll be your slave for a day should be hot, right? Well, let's just say things get [[NightmareFuel much]] [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness freakier]] from there...
** In ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1S7YxfZiJqM Flower of the Plateau]]'', we get a completely nude image of Mikulia. Pretty hot, huh? Nope. Not only is her [[spoiler: lower half seemingly ''[[BodyHorror mutated graphically to look like a flower]]'', but one of her breasts has a massive slug crawling on it. Ewwwww.]]
* FanPreferredCouple: [[LesYay Chartette/Ney]], and [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight Venomania/Gallerian.]]
* FandomBerserkButton: Go to any group of mothy fans and say that "The Last Revolver" is undeniably the song for Wrath. We ''dare'' you...
* FreudWasRight: The Sin Vessel of Lust is a ''sword''.
* HellIsThatNoise: The guillotine sound in ''Daughter of Evil'' and ''Servant of Evil'', except in certain versions where it just sounds like a rope being cut, and other versions where it's left out entirely.
** The gunshot in ''The Last Revolver.'' [[spoiler:As well as the second one.]]
* InternetBackdraft: Discussing who Michaela loved is a pretty good way to start an argument in some circles. Fanmade songs, such as Daughter of Green and at least two different songs titled Prince of Blue, get cited as evidence rather frequently in favor of either Kyle or Allen, something not helped by the fact that the official Daughter of White PV actually ''does'' seem to suggest Michaela loved Kyle (she appears to be hugging him back). On the other hand, information from books isn't as easily accessible, but they contain the clearest explanations as to Michaela's relationship, and Wooden Girl~Thousand Year Wiegenlied~ having her say she loves Clarith (but doesn't specify whether it's platonic or not). The result is a lot of confusion and attempts to sort out what's canon or not. On rare occasions, an argument against Clarith x Michaela will insist that DiscountLesbians or HeterosexualLifePartners are in play, and the conversation sharply turns into a debate on whether or not that claim is homophobic.
* LesYay: [[spoiler:After some years, fan speculation over whom Michaela truly loved - ranging from her having a true relationship with Kyle, as is implied by quite a bit of fanart, or actually being in love with Allen the whole time, which was input into its fanmade song - eventually ended up moot because regardless of whatever she felt towards Kyle, her true love was towards ''Clarith''.]]
** Also occurs in the songs where there are [[MindScrew two]] [[SelfCest Rins]]. In ''South North Story'' Rin and Riliane get very intimate with each other and in ''Screws, Gears and Pride'' the two Rins pretty much give each other the "it's not you, it's me" speech when they part ways.
** In the trailer for ''Praeludium of Red'', there's a brief image of Elluka and Gumilia looking awfully chummy...
** Some translations of ''Capriccio Farce'' have the doll call Ma "my dear Sorceress of Time".
** ''The Madness of Duke Venomania'' Manga adaptation makes Lukana Octo a walking magnet of these. She was good friends with Lilien Tanner (a baker), and bought her a beautiful bracelet to match hers. In fact, looking for Lukana is Lilien's motivation to follow the duke at first. There's also an scene where Lukana is hugging and talking to Mikulia about the duke/their situation. Mikulia's only answer is that she loves Venomania... and she also loves Lukana.
** Gumillia's feelings for Michaela are compared to Michaela's feelings for Clarith. At first Gumillia vows again and again to protect Michaela, and even before they become human, she tracks down Michaela's location when she goes missing for two weeks; similarly, in both the novel and the song, Michaela emphasizes how much she wants to protect Clarith, and occasionally it's Clarith who wants to protect her. When Michaela tells her that she will remain as a human in order to be with someone important to her, Gumillia responds that she has also just decided there's someone important she needs to protect and will thus remain human for, with the heavy implication that it's Michaela ("if Michaela wants to stay as a human, then I also donít want to revert back into a spirit"). Later, Gumillia is compared to Clarith when she challenges her on who will get to take care of tree sprout Michaela; Clarith realizes that "Michaela is an important person for her as well", and various characters have referred to their romantic interests as important people.
** The scanned images for the Conchita novel have a...[[LesYay interesting]] image of Platonic and Elluka together.
* MagnificentBastard: [[spoiler: Gallerian Marlon]].
** Also, [[spoiler: Prim Marlon]]. [[EpilepticTrees Maybe]] it's a [[spoiler: family trait]]?
** Irina deserves special mention here, [[spoiler: after all she is pretty much the one manipulating EVERY single character (Not even ''Elluka'' of all people saves herself from this ...literally) behind the events of Story of Evil and the Pere Noel Organization]], we could fill an entire article just listing each one of her schemes, including [[spoiler: manipulating Prim Marlon the former resident MagnificentBastard]]
** MA, too.
* MagnumOpus: ''Story of Evil''. ''Servant of Evil'' in particular. It's the song that gained mothy his producer name in the Vocaloid fanbase, after all.
* MemeticBadass: [[CuteBruiser Chartette]] [[BadassBookworm Langley]].
* MemeticMutation: After ''Story of Evil'''s supplementary material was released, fans are prone to making comments that go "CURSE YOU [[spoiler: [[EvilMatriarch PRIM]] [[ManipulativeBastard MARLON]]]]!"
** Before that, there was "IT'S ALL KAITO'S FAULT!" due to the fact that whenever something went wrong in the SevenDeadlySins series, a character played by Kaito would almost always be the cause of it.
** Not to mention that before [[IncurableCoughOfDeath the truth came out]] about how the hell Conchita was so thin, it was a widely accepted meme to say that it all went to her boobs.
** Jokes about Allen's [[OffWithHisHead beheading.]]
** Mothy himself has become a memetic MagnificentBastard.
** People joking and complaining about when the Wrath song is coming out is fairly common.
** Complaining about [[FailOSuckyName the names of certain characters.]] [[BilingualBonus Pollo]] and Neruneru being the most common.
** Certain scans from Waltz of Evil, [[BrainBleach the less of which is said, the better.]]
* MisaimedFandom: The Duke from ''The Madness of Duke Venomania'' seems to have quite a large fanbase, if the Website/YouTube comments for the song are anything to go by.
** [[FridgeBrilliance In other words]], [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou his charms have an effect even on the viewers]]?
** Allen in ''Story of Evil'' and Kayo in ''Tailor Shop on Enbizaka'' get a bit of this too.
* MoralEventHorizon: Every Deadly Sin character crosses this [[spoiler: except Rilianne, who was not yet beyond redemption]]:
** ''Evil Food Eater Conchita'': [[ImAHumanitarian Cannibalism]]
** ''Tailorshop on Enbizaka'': MurderTheHypotenuse (three times) AND IfICantHaveYou.
** ''Duke Venomania's Madness'': [[RapeAsDrama Rape]]. The women couldn't give consent; they were being magically manipulated by Venomania's [[DealWithTheDevil charms]].
** ''Judgement of Corruption'': Gallerian's greed resulting in outright war.
*** He may have crossed it even earlier. See FridgeHorror.
** ''Gift From Princess Sleep-Bringer'': Murder. On a grand scale. Might also count as DespairEventHorizon.
** In ''Flower of the Plateau'', Mikulia crosses this when she [[spoiler: kills her own son [[DisproportionateRetribution just to hide the fact that she]] ReallyGetsAround]]
** Prim of ''Story of Evil'' can cross this in one of several places, depending on whether you consider what happened first in the timeline or what the audience got to see first, but the most damning thing comes when the audience finally sees the whole picture: She [[spoiler:triggered two decades' worth of international suffering and warfare, all for the sake of spiting one woman who died halfway through this plot]].
* {{Narm}}: Whenever mothy fails to pull off NightmareFuel or {{Tear Jerker}}s, it usually becomes this. For example, Allen's ''paragraph-long scream'' in the novels.
* NauseaFuel: ''Evil Food Eater Conchita''.
** Certain parts of ''Madness of Duke Venomania'' might initiate this instead of FetishFuel.
** One of the images in the PV for ''Flower of the Plateau'' can qualify as well. See FanDisservice above.
* NightmareFuel: [[NightmareFuel/{{Mothy}} Has its own page.]]
* RonTheDeathEater: Riliane gets this sometimes, mostly from rabid Len/Allen fangirls.
* {{Squick}}: ''The Madness of Duke Venomania'' has several scenes that are likely to provoke such a reaction.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: It's rare, but when Mothy decides to write cute songs, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3EFbyiSTG4 they]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5F0E77UqO7Y are]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYcDPq-jBhs really, really]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fhlgmKJ3pc cute]]!
* TearJerker: Many, but special mention goes to ''Servant of Evil'', ''Regret Message'', ''Daughter of White'', ''Girl of a Miniature Garden'', ''Flames of Yellow Phosphorus'', ''The Last Revolver'', ''Maiden of Wood ~1000-Year Wiegenlied~'', ''Kept Waiting for a Response'' and ''White Brick and Black Mourning Dress''.
** A minor one where Germaine found out that the princess she captured in the Lucifenia Revolution is actually her foster brother whom practically grew up with and loved like family.
** The novels are choke-full of these. From Riliane's talk about how wanting to be like her mother left her LonelyAtTheTop to Allen's AnguishedDeclarationOfLove in the second novel [[spoiler: (specially since Michaela thinks his feelings for her [[LoveMakesYouDumb makes him as stupid as Kyle]], even as ''she's dying'')]], the novels make you feel sorry and teary-eyed for anyone not called [[TheManBehindTheMan Abyss I.R.]] or [[EvilMatriarch Prim Marlon]].
*** Kyle's reaction to having a dream about [[spoiler: Ney dying]]. [[BigBrotherInstinct He immediately rushes to her room to make sure she's okay]]. [[spoiler: She's not]].
** ''Watching Us'' in its entirety.
** In the "Waltz of Evil" guidebook, we find out that [[spoiler:Conchita cried while eating Carlos]].
* TheWoobie: Many, but [[LoveMartyr Allen]], [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth Micheala]], [[IJustWantToBeNormal Kyle]] and [[IJustWantToHaveFriends Clarith]] in ''Story of Evil'' and [[InLoveWithTheMark Gumi's character]] in ''The Last Revolver'' stand out.
** And Elluka if ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKdTGZIlSm8 Chrono Story]]'' and ''Re-collective Musicbox'' are to be believed.
** The unfortunate man [[{{Yandere}} Kayo Sudou]] was in love with in ''Tailor Shop on Enbizaka''. [[spoiler: The poor guy's ''entire family'' was murdered and he had no idea what was causing it until it was too late]].
** The Clockwork Doll. The lyrics of ''Master of the Court'' make her something of a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds too.
-->'''Doll''': How can the lifeless me understand? How can the heartless me understand?
** JerkassWoobie: Riliane.
*** And Venomania.
*** [[spoiler: Ney Futapie/Marlon after her death]].
*** Meta Salmhofer, in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QykKSkt_KZ0 Escape of Salmhofer the Witch]]''. Growing up without parents and engaging in a life of crime and terrorism for a while, she had a [[HeelFaceTurn change of heart]] after giving birth to twins, and resolved to protect her children [[spoiler: from experimentation]], only to get murdered and her children kidnapped [[spoiler: by Eve.]] She mentions in her song that she's never been loved by anyone. Ever.
