Added DiffLines:

** Speaking of which, Debonair qualifies as Nightmare Fuel all by herself. Her nhilistic and power hungry personality, her [[EvilIsHammy ultra-hammy voice]], the pipe-organ music that plays whenever she shows up, Debonair is just cruel in every sense.


Added DiffLines:

* Hikaru's reaction to [[spoiler: Debonair killing Eagle.]] Seeing a GenkiGirl and FriendToAllLivingThings such as Hikaru be out for '''blood''' can be unsettling. She even brutally attacked Nova when she tried to protect Debonair.


* The Fountain of Eterna. There, you confront representations of the people you care about most who try to kill you. And you couldn't even bring yourself to fight back because you think that it's actually your actual loved one attacking you.



* The concept of the Pillar of Cephiro, once you think of it and then see the series. When you decide to step up and become Pillar, you are basically signing a deal where [[FisherKing you will make a world prosperous and beautiful]] -- but only if you [[GreaterNeedThanMine completely renounce anything for yourself]]. It doesn't sound that bad, at least until you realize that if you slip up a little, if you have the tiniest desire for something only yours, even if this desire is otherwise "pure", healthy romantic love for another person, the world you've worked so hard to maintain and make flourish [[CrapsackWorld will collapse]]. And the only way to get that undone is summoning people from another world -- so they can ''[[ICannotSelfTerminate kill you]]''. It's no wonder that Emeraude was perpetually crying -- she went through '''all of it'''.

* Speaking of Nova, the fact that she's so sadistic to the point of refering to screams of agony as "cute" is quite unsettling.

It's no wonder that Emeraude was perpetually crying -- she went through '''all of it'''. Doubles as another massive TearJerker.


* Most monsters in Cephiro are born from the people's fear, including [[spoiler:Lady Debonair]].
* Zagato and his minions are [[WouldHurtAChild perfectly willing]] to kill three young girls to accomplish their goals. [[spoiler:Granted, for Zagato, that goal is "save the love of his life and find some way to talk her down from this idea of assisted suicide and maybe find a way to free her from Pillar-dom", but even so, it's clearly a measure Emeraude is terrified of.]]
* The monster of episode 8. [[spoiler:It's Hikari, the cute fox Hikaru befriended.]] It reveals itself by [[spoiler:''bursting out of its skin'', and its mouth is suddenly full of razor-sharp teeth]].

* In the Sega Saturn game, ''all'' of the villains the girls face end up dead. Caldina's death is probably the worst--when aiming for the Magic Knights, she accidentally hits and kills Ascot. She attacks the girls in a rage, but is defeated. As she begs them to kill her, Hikaru offers her a hand in friendship instead. Caldina reaches out... and is instantly vaporized by Inouva.
