Not only do they look rather disturbing due to their stiff faces (unlike the warmly animated Hero and Girl), they also have very creepy lifeless eyes, and were going to MURDER the protagonists because the Hero beat them in a car race. The Girl only barely escapes because the Hero opens a portal back to the real world, while he himself is on the recieving end of a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown using pipe wrenches.

** Actually, several lyrics from the ''Scoundrel Days'' album are ''very'' creepy [[LyricalDissonance once you set the music aside]]. "I've Been Losing You"? [[spoiler: About a {{Yandere}}'s thoughts after he shoots his girlfriend to death.]] "Maybe Maybe"? About a DestructiveRomance [[spoiler: that finishes when the girl runs the dude with her car]].
