* CrossesTheLineTwice: The Tsalal's gruesome brutality frequently goes so over-the-top that it loops around to becoming hilarious. Of particular note is the mock "Ask Me Anything" session with a Tsalal poster, who regards the nightmarish horror of the culture around him as [[DeliberateValuesDissonance normal, if slightly embarrassing]]. The Tsalal poster is inordinately proud of himself for convincing restaurants to stop selling the meat of Irish slaves, and while he admits that he has never seen ''Film/TheHumanCentipede'', he claims to have met one once.

--> Oh I hate [the Tsalal adaptation of {{Literature/The 120 Days Of Sodom}}]. Festival time when we were kids, we'd get dragged out to watch it, every single year.

--->Skrog cares nothing for people, and refuses to participate in the rites of guarding. [[GodIsEvil God]] sends a series of visions to terrorize Skrog, but instead of knuckling down, Skrog becomes ever more adamantly opposed to God and God's will. His example is so ferocious that the community rallies around Skrog, and in the end, they sacrifice all the newborns, in a massive blood ritual.

** One of the large carnivores living in Antarctica is the Antarctic Teratorn, a GiantFlyer vastly larger than any living flying bird. Normally it scavenges off the frozen bodies of large animals, but in summer it has to hunt. It does this by harrying its victims and spraying them with stomach acid until they collapse from exhaustion, at which point it devours them alive. One story follows a European explorer who meets this exact fate; he is ripped open and devoured, his bones broken and his flesh torn off in strips, [[CruelAndUnusualDeath and yet he remains alive for some time after it starts eating]].
