* When 9 wakes up at the start of the film, there is only one villain left. [[spoiler:7 kills it before any other villains emerge or any heroes die. There was only one villain stopping the characters from getting a happy ending, and just one of the 9 main protagonists easily defeats it.]]

* Not so much to do with the film itself but freaky nonetheless. 9 is played by [[Franchise/LordOfTheRings Frodo of the Nine Fingers]], who is part of a Fellowship of nine and has the word "nine" tattooed in Tengwar on his hip. Coincidence?

* There are still withered human bodies lying around; presumably the machines' gas not only exterminated life down to the microscopic level but stopped all biochemical processes in their tracks. ''Pickling gas'', perhaps?
** Killing all the microorganisms would make stuff wither a lot slower. In fact, this is how pickling works.
** The bodies are probably mummified. Without living trees and transpiration, inland humidity would've plummeted and rainfall dwindled considerably.
* So, the Fabrication Machine/BRAIN was created and used to make more machines. But why in the world would it have a place to put something that could suck out one's soul? Why would you build a machine with that function--wait. This machine was used ''during a war.'' So, any P.O.W.s or anti-war protesters might...Oh God.
** This could've been how the war against the machines got started. The movie claims that the Fabrication Machine turned against humanity because it was corrupted by the military, but it had to get its power from somewhere. Say people figured out what happened to the missing anti-war protesters and, naturally, they had a problem with it.
** It's also worth noting that the Fabrication Machine and the soul-transferring makeup mask were invented by the same guy. The feature-length film even shows on screen him transferring some of his intellect into the machine. There's an implication that they ran on similar technology, but that the "just a scrape" approach the Scientist used with the Fabrication Machine wasn't enough to impart humanity. Without a moral center and compass, the thing was far more inclined to just go berserk - which it did.
* A WildMassGuessing for ''WesternAnimation/{{Nine}}'' suggests that the dolls' purpose was to be soul-sucked and then have their souls released into the sky so life could be restored to Earth. If that's true, then ''at least five of those dolls were born just so they could'' '''die.''' And not a nice death, either--a horrible, painful, '''terrifying''' one!

* One might have to get over the warm and fuzzy feeling of the ending before realizing that the survivors are doomed to live with only each other until they break down. Even if that was life raining, a few micro-organisms would be no comfort in an otherwise empty world. This isn't an aversion of the end of the world; it is completely played straight in spite of the inventor's best efforts to create new life.
** You have to start somewhere. Fortunately, the Stitchpunks are immortal and can afford to wait.

* As if she wasn't terrifying enough already, The Seamstress becomes even worse when you stop and ''think'' about how she catches things. She literally sews you to youself, effectively ''binding you using your own skin''.


** Save for, perhaps, a monstrous mutant [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes cobra]] straight out of [[ResidentEvil the Resident Evil series.]]

* In the end, you see 1 follow in his own philosophy. In the most tragic of ways. "Sometimes ''One'' must be sacrificed for the good of many."

* The general relationship between 7, 3 and 4. The twins appear to be close to 7 with her acting as a maternal figure for them, but the set up of this little group makes sense when you take their numbers into consideration: 3+4=7 after all!


** They also invoke the images of monsters from Myth/ClassicalMythology--the Cat Beast is an implacable feline monster (like the Chimera), the Winged Beast is a predatory avian (like the Stymphalian Birds) and the Seamstress is a feminine serpent that can immobilize her prey through eye contact (like the Gorgons).

** They also invoke the images of monsters from Myth/ClassicalMythology--the Cat Beast is an a giant, implacable feline monster (like the Chimera), Nemean Lion), the Winged Beast is a predatory avian with a sharp beak and an equally sharp metal projectile (like the Stymphalian Birds) and the Seamstress is a feminine serpent that can immobilize her prey through eye contact (like the Gorgons).

Added DiffLines:

* The monsters manufactured by the Fabrication Machine get progressively more alien looking as the film goes on. The Cat Beast looks like a giant cat, a very familiar creature. The Winged Beast (according to WordOfGod) is meant to look something like a dragon, a being that is less familiar and unlikely to be seen in real life. The Seamstress, for all intents and purposes, is a mechanical EldritchAbomination that looks nothing like any sort of real life entity.
