* At one point, Tsali mentions the fate of Muslim women in the Emirate of Mecca. Because their religious beliefs revolve around [[SexIsEvil sex is evil]], the Muslims turned their women into living baby factories who are surgically impregnated and forced to give birth ''[[{{Squick}} every few seconds]]''. It's [[NothingIsScarier not shown directly]], but it doesn't make it any less disturbing. [[spoiler: Until it actually gets shown in the Episode 71 rewrite, when Eric and friends find a damaged Miriam pod littered on a battlefield. ''[[AndIMustScream With the woman still alive inside it and still pushing out half-formed fetuses]]'']].

* Episode 67. The ''entire episode'' is NightmareFuel, especially the rewrite. When Beelzebub attacks Chris and Cosmo and drags them into his lair, he strips both of them naked and ties Cosmo to his desk with razor wire. She hears buzzing and notices his skin is turning black. Cue a swarm of flesh-eating flies coming out of Beelzebub's skin pores and feeding on both of them. ''[[FromBadToWorse And that's not the end of it]]''; after his "children" are done, Beelzebub drags the unconscious Chris out of his chamber. [[spoiler:[[FanDisservice What happens]] [[RapeAsDrama next]] is [[NothingIsScarier fortunately not described]]]]. Cosmo is seconds away from the same fate - and is ''begging Beelzebub to kill her instead'' - when Tails finally reaches them. It's rather telling that in a story filled with violent and dark content, Episode 67 is the [[ThisIsGonnaSuck only chapter with its own content warning]].

** Beelzebub alone is creepy - a fat PsychopathicManchild and MadScientist all rolled up into one. Hearing him crack extremely dark jokes while he tortures [[spoiler: and rapes]] children is quite disconcerting.

* The entire setting and backstory. The CrapsackWorld does not hold back or pull any punches, especially the background materials. Rape, murder, torture, genocide, famine, and fundamentalism are all considered routine. Parts of it (particularly anything to do with the Muslims/Emirate of Mecca) could very easily rival ''Warhammer 40K'' in the darkness department.

** What makes it even worse is that the story notably shies away from HumansAreBastards - there are far more moral and decent characters than evil ones. All that horror and tragedy? It's all InherentInTheSystem, and [[CosmicHorrorStory nothing can be done to stop it]].

Even if there are only a handful left, the sheer FridgeHorror behind them is enough.
