* YuriFan: Seems a certainty with LesYay in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' and ''Anime/FateZero'' and outright lesbians in ''Anime/PsychoPass'' and ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet''. Goes the other way, too; Waver and Rider (both male) of ''LightNovel/FateZero'' are an OfficialCouple, according to WordOfGay.

** Two of his 2013 works seem to deconstruct the former. The first is ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'', where Homura [[spoiler:after a conversation with Madoka, realizes that Madoka may not be alright with her HeroicSacrifice and that the only reason why she did it in the first place was because it was the right thing to do. So she takes matters into her own hands and rescues -- well, kidnaps is a more appropriate word -- Madoka and replaces her as the Goddess. Her new universe makes the other characters live happy lives [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans at the cost]] of sealing away their memories, taking away their responsibilities as magical girls, and, worst of all, betraying her best friend Madoka. And she hates herself throughout for having to go through with it, thus hitting this back to a Bittersweet Ending]].

* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids[=/=]TrueArtIsAngsty: He is also definitely on the side of those who consider happy stories to be unrealistic, to the point where he has actually suggested that Lighter and Softer stories, by definition, ''contradict the laws of nature'' and are therefore difficult to write and impossible to believe.
-->"I have nothing but contempt for the deceitful thing men call 'happiness', and find myself with no choice but to push my characters, whom I pour my heart and soul out to create, into the abyss of tragedy."

* ''Jouka no Monshou'' (2003, a short {{Film/Equilibrium}} fanfic)


* FateWorseThanDeath: Despite his infamy of being the "Urobutcher", killing off his characters isn't the ''worst'' he can do to his characters. He's also known to have his characters being raped, brutally tortured, or chronically turning his characters into literal monsters. In fact, he let some of his characters live, but have them go through emotional and mental suffering either seeing some of their loved ones killed off (''Anime/MadokaMagica''), having their ideal dreams destroyed and/or exposed (''LightNovel/FateZero''), or all three (''Series/KamenRiderGaim'').

* DeconReconSwitch: In spite of the above, good tends to prevail and outright DownerEnding is generally avoided in his works. It's just that BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil tends to be very much in effect and the price of victory keeps the characters and the viewers alike wondering whether it was worth it.

** He somehow managed to one-up ''Creator/HideakiAnno'' in making the ''Godzilla'' anime trilogy darker than Anno's own ''Film/ShinGodzilla'' in this department. How often do you see a ''Godzilla'' film where [[spoiler: the protagonist's LoveInterest die ''horribly'' due to assimilation]]?
