YMMV: Cinders

  • Awesome Music: The entire soundtrack.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Of the four possible "Queen" ending portraits, the Evil Queen portrait is the only one where Cinders is showing cleavage.
  • Hollywood Homely: Sophia herself, as well as other characters, constantly remark that Sophia is less pretty than Gloria. Sophia doesn't look that different from Gloria; the models look almost identical except that Sophia's hairstyle is different, Sophia tends to dress in plainer clothes, and Sophia's breasts aren't as large as Gloria's.
    • This may have been intentional; the 'other characters' are Carmosa and Gloria- both cruel people- and Sophia has very low self-esteem.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Gloria, Sophia, and/or Carmosa become this if you improve your relationship with them and get a better idea of why they've become so embittered and spiteful.
  • Straw Feminist: Also crosses over with Gameplay and Story Segregation, as this blogger details. The script clearly advocates independence and a realistic outlook, yet makes the 'Evil Queen' ending more likely if a player expresses this. The script overall suffers from a lack of tangible morality choices, so 'good' is equivalent to 'passive' and 'cynical' to 'murderous tyrant.'
  • Tear Jerker:
    • If you poison Carmosa, the sisters' following breakdowns are pretty heartbreaking.
    • Seeing the sisters fight and bicker knowing that it is possible for them to get along and be happy together had Cinders taken a different path is pretty sad.
  • Guide Dang It: The ending variants.
