YMMV: Sailor Nothing
  • Complete Monster — Most Yamiko would be this, but have the solid excuse of being nothing more than a raging ball of id. Radon, however, plays it very straight. Even after having his mind cleared by the priestess he remains a treacherous, backstabbing Starscream. When pretending to be one of the good guys he still comes off as a total Knight Templar, and following his return to villainy he crosses the Moral Event Horizon in about ten seconds flat. He's also an arrogant, unpleasant Smug Snake and Jerk Ass extraordinare.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A grimdark magical girl story with a manipulative recruiter disguised as a benevolent being tricking girls into becoming magical girls, who are then forced to fight for their lives? Seems familiar.
  • Hype Backlash: For some, especially those more familiar with modern fanfic conventions (ie exhaustively researching Japanese culture) or more recent deconstructions of the genre.
  • Magnificent Bastard: One could make a solid case for Argon, who has the three base tropes—Trickster, Manipulative Bastard, and Chessmaster—down pat. He's also a Large Ham, a deconstruction of the Noble Demon, and a Faux Affably Evil Mad Artist distinguished by his Genre Savvy and Undying Loyalty to the Yamiko queen.
  • Nightmare Fuel — The six-year-old girl's Yamiko. The Super Yamiko. The fate of Ami.
    • That six-year-old with a pencil.
      "All I ever wanted was someone to play with, and they never would. Now you're trying to hurt me, too, and I have to hurt you back..."
  • Unfortunate Implications: The Rape as Drama plot device is used WAY too much for many people's taste.
  • The Woobie — Poor Himei. Poor, poor Himei.
