These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Santa Sangre
Designated Villain: Orgo is a philanderer and clearly not a nice person, but his most overt abuse toward Fenix (tattooing him with a knife) appears to be genuinely intended as a bonding experience, meant to make him more macho, and maybe make Fenix less of a mama's boy. (Which would have been a very good thing if it had worked...) Orgo's one act of true violence comes seconds after his wife dissolves his genitals with acid.
