YMMV: Kurau Phantom Memory
- Complete Monster: Satoshi Ichise is unique among the few villains in that he has no discernible Freudian Excuse and no motive behind his atrocities apart from research or personal enjoyment. Said atrocities involve experimenting on a young girl possessed by an Energy Being, to the point where she was physically and mentally exhausted. When he tried to force her to continue, she unleashed a surge of power that would have killed him if her father hadn't saved him. Years later, we see he's continuing his experiments, and after learning the girl is still alive and more powerful than before, he gives an expression that can best be described as arousal. It is soon revealed that the Big Bad has hired him to create an army of Super Soldiers, and we are given no reason why Ichise agreed to this, so we can assume that he just wants to do horrible experiments. Most of his subjects have died or lost their sense of self, and he shows no remorse. At one point, he suffers Laser-Guided Karma during one of his offscreen experiments, where he repeatedly says that he was "a fool". At first, this seems like a form of redemption, but the very next time we see him, he used some device created by Kurau's Father to heal himself and reveals he only called himself a fool for not realizing what went wrong with his experiments, and now he has successfully created his Super Soldiers. He overshadows the Big Bad in terms of his sheer depravity and is the one character who is treated as irredeemably evil and possibly insane.
