* The birth of the wasp, with the person rapidly aging and ending up as a shrivelled corpse.
** So far it's happened to three people, one who died off screen. Shion's co-worker is bad enough, he collapses back and looks at his rapidly ageing hand in horror. We then get a blurry POV shot of him looking at Shion, and he shakily asks "what's happening to me?". The second victim is far more horrific. She first notices the black spot on her face in a shop window, meaning that she's able to witness exactly what's happening to her as she rapidly ages and dies.
** Also happens in a freaky scene to a woman at the end of chapter 10.
** During the Holy Day celebrations [[spoiler: the bees]] go one step further and...well, [[spoiler: kill about a fourth of the No.6 inhabitants.]]
* The pile of corpses in Episode 10 and Shion vomiting upon seeing them. There are live people strewn in the literal mountain of bodies, moaning and groaning enough to nearly break Shion.
** Small, horrific detail: the [[spoiler:knitting needle]] Shion absently grabs onto while climbing that pile. Even scarier in that it's never overtly alluded to, as it's overridden by the horror of the climb in general...
* [[BigBrotherIsWatching The whole concept of No.6 - being watched over day and night by your ID bracelet]], which allows the higher-ups to see and hear everything you do and say. The worst part? You're absolutely okay with it, because you've never been given any alternative.
* It's pretty small, but Nezumi's reaction to the possibility of [[spoiler: everyone dying in No.6 because of the wasps]] is ''to dance with Shion in joy.'' Nezumi's reaction becomes scarier after Shion says that he [[spoiler: wants to make a serum to destroy the wasps]] - he gets angry and threatens Shion because he doesn't want Shion to help them.
* Chapter 13 features Safu waking up in the correctional facility after being kidnapped and finding herself strapped to an operating table. A man tells her that they are going to operate on her and she cries TearsOfFear in response. *shudder*
* Anytime Shion's {{Yandere}} side shows up.
* [[spoiler:The fate of the people from the slums who are dumped into the room with the dead bodies - if any of them survived the fall like Nezumi and Shion, they are trapped down there with no food or water, surrounded by corpses. Logically, that would lead to [[ImAHumanitarian rather desperate measures]].]]
* The [[spoiler: manhunt]]. It must have been like pure hell.
