- Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Episode 4: If something is troubling you, get drunk to forget about it!(Mizuki ends up getting a runner's high instead.)
- Nightmare Fuel: In general, Mokke seems like a straight example of a children's show, so when things become not-so-kid-friendly, the effect is really jarring.
- Shizuru's story about a snake being killed, cut into pieces, and impaled by a group of children as a game and then cursing the village leader because he was the one who feared a curse was chilling. Thankfully, it didn't actually happen in the anime.
