YMMV: Gangsta
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Twelve-year-old Nicolas successfully writing out Wallace's name.
  • Moe: Nina. Also, Nicolas as a little boy.
  • Moral Event Horizon: A mercenary killed Nicolas' mother, a Twilight prostitute, to pretty much raise him as his own personal Twilight guard dog and then sell him to private military contractors for his abilities when he was of age. The mercenary in question was HIS FATHER. It's so bad that the man's comrade, who's not such a nice guy himself, looks at him as if to say "Even Evil Has Standards!"
    • Wallace's father putting out Wallace's eye.
    • Nicolas' superior/father officially needs to die after what he said to the boy at the end of chapter 15.
    • In chapter 20, Ivan Glaziev forces a Twilight to attack Loretta by holding his wife and daughter hostage. When the Twilight fails to kill her and is later lying in a pool of his own blood, Glaziev tells him that his family was stripped naked, had their limbs chopped off almost immediately after the Twilight left for the Cristianos' safehouse. There... are no words.
  • Nausea Fuel: Invoked by the author through her creating colossal amounts of Mood Whiplash between the few short scenes that go back and forth between Worick flirtatiously kissing a woman who'd hired him and a man who begins to do so forcibly to a woman next to a pile of dismembered Twilight corpses.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Hello again, Barry.
    • The flashback chapter showing a little tagged girl crying over the beaten and raped corpse of what is most likely her mother. The last panel shows a bunch of hands most likely reaching for her. Thankfully, that's the last we see of it.
    • Chapter 20. ALL of chapter 20.
  • Tear Jerker: That poor Twilight in chapter 20.
  • The Woobie: Nicolas as a kid. He's an orphan, beaten up and made fun of by most of his superiors, he's been deaf from presumably birth thanks to the actions of one of his parents, and he doesn't even expect to live very long. It's no big surprise why he's such a jerk in the present.
    • Nic is treated more like an animal than an underling. He won't even sit on a chair or bed, instead siting on the floor with his knees pulled up to his chest. The scene where he starts to pass out and shake due to withdrawl, and the mercenaries inject him with meds is hard to read. The way they're slapping him to keep him conscious and standing him up so he's presentable in front of an approaching Wallace is disturbing.
    • Jerkass Woobie: Surprisingly, Worick. While he was an adorable, educated rich kid, he was also the son of a mistress, his father beat him, the maids gossiped about him constantly and to top it off, his bodyguard was a deaf kid who was the resident Woobie. This gave Worick an enormous chip on his shoulder.
