YMMV: mothy

YMMV tropes for the Evillious Chronicles go here.

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming:
    • The simplest example would be the end of To the Reticent You
    Rin: There is no need for words anymore/That is what I thought/I knew it this is happiness/ You told me that you love me
    • The final line in White Brick and Black Mourning Dress where the girl finally gets to be with the boy she saw in the mirror—by giving birth to him and raising him as her son.
    He was her happiness
  • Ear Worm: Mothy has a tendency to produce this in his songs. The "Lu, Li, La" part of the Clockwork Lullaby series is pretty much guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
  • Evil Is Cool / True Art Is Angsty: Mothy has written some songs that are actually pretty adorable (Ten-Minute Love, To The Reticent You, South North Story and TwiRight Prank) but he's most well known for writing tragic, mind screwy and Nightmare Fuel filled stuff about horrible people, people dying, or horrible people dying.
  • Les Yay: Occurs in the songs where there are two Rins. In South North Story Rin and Riliane get very intimate with each other and in Screws, Gears and Pride the two Rins pretty much give each other the "it's not you, it's me" speech when they part ways.
  • Magnum Opus: Story of Evil. Servant of Evil in particular, from the Evillious Chronicles. It's the song that gained mothy his producer name in the Vocaloid fanbase, after all.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: It's rare, but when Mothy decides to write cute songs, they are really, really cute!
  • Tear Jerker: Produces quite a few of these, such as Flames of Yellow Phosphorus, White Brick and Black Mourning Dress, and Watching Us.
  • The Woobie: The unnamed girl in Flames of Yellow Phosphorous. Abused by her father, tossed out into the street and then ultimately burned to death.
    • The boy, girl and star in "Watching Us". The boy falls ill, possibly terminally, and can't get treatment because he's poor. His sister, in order to pay his medical bills, has to work for hours in a factory. The star can only watch helplessly as they suffer, seeing herself as a failure for not being able to help them as they wish for miracles in her name.
