* DarthWiki/MostAnnoyingSound: Nameless' theme, which sounds like a distorted, freaky version of the merry-go-round music. In itself not bad music, it certainly fits the atmosphere, but it's practically the only music playing during the secret route.

Added DiffLines:

* WhyWouldAnyoneTakeHimBack: Some players' reactions to [[spoiler:Tei by the end of his route. Not unlike [[StepfordSmiler Jiyeon]] [[VideoGame/{{Dandelion}} before him]], Tei is dangerous, manipulative, and physically threatens or assaults Eri on the way to his good ending (though unlike his predecessor, the ForcefulKiss only happens in a bad ending). Chances are that [[AnotherSideAnotherStory by the time you get to Tei's route]], you'll also have seen him kill both Lance and Yeonho in ''their'' bad endings, and more of what he's capable of in Yuri's. Not to mention the part where he [[ShockValueRelationship asks out Soi]] to drive Eri away and proceeds to [[BastardBoyfriend ignore Soi until she breaks it off]]. There are plenty of players who want nothing to do with him by the time he comes around]].


** [[spoiler:The Wizard. As he was in VideoGame/{{Dandelion}}, he's morally ambiguous at best, and this game is much more potentially dangerous for the "heroine" than his previous one]]. But between his long hair, ornate outfit, {{Biseinen}} look, and cool {{Leitmotif}}, he gets plenty of admirers. His snarky interactions with Nameless/??? don't hurt his popularity, either.



** Red appears to be wearing half a plaid shirt and a white t-shirt under his leather jacket, as well as ''another'' shirt or jacket tied around his waist. And a studded belt over that.

that. Lance [[ImpossiblyTackyClothes hates the entire ensemble]].


** [[spoiler:Tei. He's responsible for at least one disturbing bad ending in EVERY route, has possibly the most horrifying bad endings of any character in the game, manipulates everyone around him including one of Eri's best friends, and is deeply unstable and violent even on the way to his good ending. But he's [[{{Bishonen}} pretty]] and [[SupremeChef makes delicious food]], so naturally he's one of the more popular options]].

to:

** [[spoiler:Tei. He's responsible for at least one disturbing bad ending in EVERY route, has possibly his own route features four of the most horrifying bad endings of any character in the game, he manipulates everyone around him including one of Eri's best friends, (including Soi, who is honestly smitten with him but whom he only dates to distract himself from Eri), and is he's deeply unstable and violent even on the way to his good ending. But he's [[{{Bishonen}} pretty]] and [[SupremeChef makes delicious food]], so naturally he's one of the more popular options]].


* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Tei genuinely [[spoiler:a kind person who wants to fill the TeamMom role he plays, or is all of his domesticity just an act to distract himself from his [[{{Yandere}} obsession with Eri]]? Yeonho and Lance's bad endings prove he will not hesitate to kill the other dolls if he feels he needs to, but there are moments that could imply an honest affection for them. His animosity for Yuri (which surfaces only after Yuri finds out how twisted Tei really is) may suggest otherwise]].

But he's [[{{Bishonen}} pretty]] and [[SupremeChef makes delicious food]], so naturally he's one of the more popular options]].
** [[spoiler:Tei AND Yuri in Yuri's third bad ending, in which they decide to "share" Eri between them. It's obviously meant to be disturbing in-game, but there are plenty of fans who don't exactly object to the idea]].
** Yujin, the school nurse, both in-game and in the fandom. Obsessed with bones, deliberately creepy and off-putting, but again... he's [[{{Bishonen}} really pretty]].



* WTHCostumingDepartment: The [[https://riebakkari.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/yuri01.jpg shoes]] that Yuri gives Eri on his route. They are either really cute or a strange color choice of pale pink with purple heels and a sparkly green bow on the side.
** Tei's... asymmetrically placed, purple apron over his brownish pants.

** Tei's... asymmetrically placed, Tei's tan jacket and pants along with the purple apron button-up aren't too offensive on their own. Add what looks like a ''waist cincher'', some kind of buckled leather(?) thing across his chest, and a bag that appears to be hanging from his belt down to his knee, and it's a fashion disaster.

that.

Added DiffLines:

* CargoShip:
** The school nurse is blatantly and obsessively in love with Beatrice, his skeleton model.
** Eri herself eventually falls for her dolls, although unlike Beatrice this doesn't happen until they have human avatars that can return her interactions with them.


* CompleteMonster: The Xibalba entity is an ancient being from a group of inter-dimensional aliens known as the Outsiders, who, after a war with the heroic Titans, was locked away inside an asteroid called Marduk. Stuck in Its prison, the Entity reached out with Its mind and influenced all of humanity with evil thoughts over the millions of years it has existed, and as such, is the root of nearly all evil throughout the course of human history. When the Entity gains a foothold onto the Earth by invading the mind of a man called "Nameless", the Entity forces him to massacre over a dozen people, then uses him to pull Itself closer to Earth over many years, slowly increasing Its influence over humanity and forcing them to commit more and more atrocities. When Nameless attempts to have the Entity purged from his mind, the Entity subjects both him and the exorcist to absolutely horrifying amounts of mental torture while turning most of humanity into ravenous killers who rape and kill anyone they come across. The Entity's master plan is to crash Marduk into the Earth, then open a dimensional gateway to allow the rest of Its species to enter this galaxy, at which point they will plunge what's left of humanity into a living Hell. Loving Its position as "God" of the galaxy, the Entity was described as a psychopathic and sadistic monster, and made no attempts to disprove those claims.
