** The worst part is that there is no way around the fact that TheExtremistWasRight: they are a critically understaffed police agency for whom an EmptyQuiver is [[ButForMeItWasTuesday just another Tuesday]]. Imagine what it's like to live in a universe where the theft or seizure of a functioning nuclear weapon (Or rather it's [[FantasticNuke Fantastic equivalent]]) is a slow news day. There is no confirmed case of EmptyQuiver IRL. Nanoha and her friends solved two EmptyQuiver cases in as many years.


* Precia's depiction as a TragicVillain in the movie (along with the blame for [[spoiler:the explosion that killed Alicia]] resting on a third party instead of being a result of her illegal research) is due to the fact that the movie is RecursiveCanon. Fate probably told the director to have her mother presented in a sympathetic light.

* Watch ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' then watch this. All that actually is needed to make the story a horror is a bit of psychedelic imagery, and the helpful mascot being TheFakeCutie. That is, in episode 3, Yuno could have conceivably worked Nanoha to the bone when it was clear using her power was exhausting her, MovingTheGoalposts by leaving the number of {{PlotCoupon}}s vague. Even without the EldritchAbomination angle, a fantasy world where a magical girl can control massive amounts of power with PowersAsPrograms means that she could be manipulated to do practically ''anything''.

* How about the TSAB itself? They've been shown to employ children as young as 12 to be their enforcers, and as we have seen from Nanoha, they aren't immune to getting hurt badly, crippled, or even killed. No one child that young should have to suffer that badly, but that's not the end of it. Then we have seen them putting children as young as nine years old on trial with the very real possibility that they could face hundreds of years, basically life, in prison. Far from treating the TSAB as a well-meaning established body that wants to act for the greater good, it paints them instead as a military dictatorship whose word is law and routinely traumatizes young children.

* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'': Shamal has the ability to project her hand a long ways, which she uses to retrieve [[spoiler: Nanoha's Linker Core.]] It looks disturbing enough as it already is, but then consider how it could be more violently used: to rip out someone's... brain? [[BeatStillMyHeart Heart]]? Spine? [[GroinAttack Penis?]]
** Given how long the Book of Darkness must have existed, it would be statistically improbable to never have had male masters. If we assume, as we aren't given any reason to think otherwise, that [[spoiler: its possession of a master's body always results in a female form]], then what would happen to [[spoiler: the males' family jewels? [[GroinAttack OHSHI-]]]]
** The history of the Wolkenritter is one of implied horror. When they first encounter Hayate, they aren't used to being treated as people instead of servants bound to the whims of their master; as a result they become fanatically loyal to her. Think on what kind of treatment it would take to make them so cold and bitter and that three of them are young women and a little girl. Although, it might actually be worse to consider the alternative -- that Hayate is typical of the masters of the book, and it's been wiping their memories of person after person that they've loved, leaving them cold, bitter shells.
* ''Anime/StrikerS'' gives us another one. As if it wasn't already creepy enough that [[MadScientist Scaglietti]] [[spoiler:[[ParentalIncest impregnated his cyborg daughters with clones of himself]], consider that he may have done the same thing to Ginga.]] And that weren't enough, get this: all twelve (possibly thirteen) girls were [[spoiler:pregnant at the time of their capture]], but fast forward four years to ''[=ViVid=]'' and at least eight of them are still [[spoiler:childless, and there is no mention of a Scaglietti Jr. in ''SSX'']]. Guess the squeaky clean and shiny Bureau couldn't afford [[spoiler:more Scagliettis running around and forced all girls to have an abortion, including the ones still loyal to him]]. The whole affair is incredibly messy when you think about it.
** Uh, that was a contingency measure. The girls would only get [[spoiler: pregnant if Jail died. Hence why Fate HOMERUN'd him into a wall rather than killing him.]] So unless the measure is not deactivated by the TSAB after the end of StrikerS, then that problem won't happen.

* Linith is Precia's familiar, created from her pet cat. However, both she and Alicia were found dead during the day the reactor accident happened. So, how did the dead cat became a familiar? Simple, she was revived by Precia first, possibly to test the effectiveness of Project F.

* The fluff on {{Familiar}}s is also pretty horrifying. The sound stages state that standard procedure when creating a familiar is to form a contract with a specified end, and when it is completed, the familiar will lose their sentience and revert back to being a normal animal, which is basically ''death''.

the equivalent of lobotomizing someone down to animal intelligence.
