* Mythra in her UnstoppableRage is absolutely terrifying, not only can Addam not control her because of their less-than-ideal bond but Addam is still getting electrocuted after touching the third sword even when it's no longer in his hand. It's very similar to Dunban's pain of not being able to use the Monado. Then there's Mythra's screams, which shows she is in absolute agony. The only thing she wants until she snaps out of her RoaringRampageOfRevenge is to make Malos suffer.



-->'''Gort:''' I'll use your blood as a balm for my wounds. How about it? Sound fair? Yeah?! *Pops a [[WolverineClaws Wolverine Claw]] out of his prosthetic arm* I'll start with you, you Tornan Blade! I'm paying you back for cutting my arms off, you dog! I'll have me arms back... And I think I deserve... some interest, too... I'll take your ears and nose as well!

* The Land of Morytha, a post-apocalyptic modern city full of nightmarish, humanoid monsters known as Guldos, and they are the only organic monsters present in the land aside from Parisax in the Titan carcasses. It is later revealed that these feral abominations used to be [[WasOnceAMan the original humans of Earth]], who tried to make themselves immortal through overuse of Core Crystals (which were designed to replace dying brain cells). [[GoneHorriblyRight They succeeded]] and survived the creation of Alrest, [[BodyHorror but they've mutated so drastically]], the only thing human about them is their shape, and some such as the Infernal Guldo, don't even look close to human anymore. These creatures and the ruins of Morytha are all a result of [[AndManGrewProud human folly]].

* Torna: The Golden Country ends with a fight against Gort, who has been turned into one of the first Blade Eaters, a raving titan-like abomination that's practically a more deliberate version of a Guldo, courtesy of Indol. It gets worse when it's shown Indol made several of them to attack the remnants of Torna.

* [[spoiler: Learning about Nia's backstory when going for the third Aegis sword. While Nia tells the group that her father was very kind and that she loved him, the actual flashbacks shown have him come across as very creepy and possibly mentally unstable with him telling Nia to call him "father" and that her "sister" lives on through her. Not hard to see why when one considers that Nia is the ReplacementGoldfish for his real daughter, but it makes you wonder what kind of state he was in at the end of his life.]]
* [[spoiler: How Nia attempted to kill Malos at the Cliffs of Morytha. By giving him a [[HarmfulHealing hyper-fast acting cancer that causes his muscles to repeatedly explode with clouds of black fluid.]] It is awesome, but undeniably brutal and horrifying. Goes to show that even the good guys do not shy away from invoking this trope.]]
* [[spoiler: Pyra's brutal MindRape by Malos, which ends up temporarily turning her into an empty shell by the time Rex comes to save her. What's worse is that [[KickTheDog Malos didn't even need to erase Pyra's memories to restore his Aegis powers]]. On top of all that, Pyra's screams of agony can be hard to sit through for some players.]]

* [[spoiler: Amalthus's OneWingedAngel form, created from [[CannibalismSuperpower absorbing multiple Blade crystals]]. After Klaus tells the party [[WasOnceAMan how the Guldos in Morytha came to be]], it's apparent that [[BodyHorror Amalthus essentially became a Guldo]], but has retained his sapience and some semblance of his original self.]]

Rex gets to fight all the party members. All the while, they voice Rexís doubts, from Niaís feelings to leading his friends on a wild goose chase. You can hear Rexís voice get more and more confused and scared as it goes on. Sure, it ends with a touching scene with Pyra and Mythra, but even at the end of that, Rex breaks down.

** [[spoiler: The very sight of fighting your party members can be very unsettling. Even the music is distorted sounding and unnerving, it almost sounds like something out of ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'''s final boss theme.]]
