Added DiffLines:

* HoYay: There's good and evil examples.
** Nicolas and Worick are the HeterosexualLifePartners that come off as not so hetero. The two are each other's LivingEmotionalCrutch and can rely on each other no matter what.
** Striker comes off as a DepravedBisexual with a homicidal obsession with the object of his affection, Marco, and a lot of his violence towards Constance comes off as...not even jealousy, more like a vengeful MurderTheHypotenuse.

Added DiffLines:

** '''[[AxCrazy Striker]]'''. He was the oldest and most experienced of the Destroyers, and he is...just... ''yugh''. The best way to describe him is that, if he were a hero, he'd be insanely popular. He acts a lot like Worick, really; he's chill, easygoing, loves fun, is a smartass, is a bona fide hunk, and will casually flirt with both men and women. If you're a normal human, he's perfectly polite to you. If you are a twilight, he will get his rocks off by murdering you in cold blood ''simply to kill time''. In his EnfantTerrible youth, he was absolutely horrifying in the sheer glee with which he brutally murdered ''hundreds'' of innocent civilians--man, woman, and child, all graphically and almost all of them screaming, running away, and begging for mercy. He's no different as an adult, just calmer about it. This is before you factor in his chilling obsession with Marco that causes him to deliberately torture him both physically and psychologically. Even the other Destroyers are afraid of him. The ''only'' reason he doesn't qualify for CompleteMonster is because he was brainwashed in a government lab to be exactly what he is.


Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Marco, mostly because he's where most of the sympathetic points are thrown in the ''CURSED'' novel that explores his backstory. He is the only second-gen Destroyer to question whether their mission's rapidly rising body count is in line with what their superiors told them about twilights being monsters. But mind you, ''he has murdered literally hundreds of screaming and crying people'' by the time he starts voicing his doubts. It makes it hard to welcome him over to the side of good, even when his monstrous acts pale in comparison to his fellows' slaughterfests.


* EnsembleDarkhorse: Among the main characters, [[BreakoutCharacter Nicolas]] has received a lot of attention following the anime's airing for being a badass deaf swordsman. Plenty of secondary characters enjoy their own fanbases, with special mention going to [[OlderThanTheyLook Doug]], [[LittleMissBadass Loretta]], and Galahad.
** Several supporting characters are introduced early on only to get their own important subplots a few chapters later. Delico and Marco are the most notable examples.


* AwesomeMusic: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yRrxlom6ko "Renegade"]], the opening has gotten a lot of deserved love for its style and general awesomeness.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The series has attracted a decent fanbase in the States. The manga's use of popular western tropes (and slight similarities to other popular shows like Baccano and Black Lagoon) might have a role in this.

** JerkassWoobie: Surprisingly, [[spoiler: Worick. While he was an adorable, educated rich kid, he was also the son of a mistress, his father beat him, the maids gossiped about him constantly and to top it off, his bodyguard was a deaf kid who was the resident {{Woobie}}. This gave Worick an enormous chip on his shoulder.]]
** At this point, it's safe to say that Ergastulum equals a WorldOfWoobie.

When the Twilight fails to kill her and is later lying in a pool of his own blood, [[spoiler:Glaziev]] tells him that his family was stripped naked, had their limbs chopped off almost immediately after the Twilight left for the Cristianos' safehouse. There... are no words.
