** [[spoiler: During the Agony Cycle, the Brothers may begin a witch hunt, in which case they'll target one or more Sisters and try them for heresy. The player will hear the targeted Sister crying in despair before she is cast into the Nightmare, similar to Sister Death's fate.]]

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The music is generally very atmospheric -- eeire, haunting, and lonely, but at times peaceful and melodious as well, which is very fitting for the Void. You can download the whole soundtrack (and some concept art) [[http://www.tension-game.com/index_en.php on the official site.]] Notable examples:
** The music for the Void overworld itself is fitting for the overall feel -- quiet, but also somewhat eerie. In addition, every chapter features a remix of the same tune to fit the mood even better. Of particular note is the final track, which combines elements from all the others, as well as [[TitleThemeDrop the title theme]].
** All of the battle music, particularly the one for the flache -- it's ominous and the tune sounds very much like something a KnightTemplar would play.
** The music for [[spoiler:the Adit]] and [[spoiler:the Nameless Sister's sanctum after her death]] are suitably epic for the {{Wham Episode}}s that occur there.

*** Particularly the sight of them entering the Void, especially if you're new to this game--no music, just the loud clang of doors opening as the sound of each Brother slowly making his way forward as the camera tracks his movements.

* HellIsThatNoise: The ''walking sound'' of the venus flytrap-like creatures, as well as ''every single sound'' emitted by the crow-like creatures. See NightmareFuel below for details.



** But they're NightmareRetardant compared to [[spoiler:the Scorpio. Dear gods, ''the Scorpio''. It's a being (or conglomeration of beings?) that appears when you've dealt significant damage to a realm. It/they destroy your trees, preventing you from planting any more Color -- something that no other creature can do. And all the while, you're aware of the knowledge that ''this is your fault''.]] But worst of all are the creatures that come with it (that may well just be another part of the HiveMind) -- hideous, venus flytrap-like black plants that hold Color drops in their centers. If you try to take the bait, [[ChestMonster they attack you]] (they'll also kill any fireflies that are tempted by the Color in seconds). Oh, and you can hear [[HellIsThatNoise their footsteps]] no matter where you are (it's not muted with distance). However, their attempts at luring you with their Color are almost laughable, since it's such an obvious trap. That's where the ''other'' creature comes in. It uses sprigs of Color as its trap, and there is [[ParanoiaFuel no way to tell]] if a sprig is real or not. If you do uproot the creature, you'll be greeted by a hideous, crow-like ''thing'' that emits a [[HellIsThatNoise soul-piercing screech]] that is guaranteed to turn your blood to ice. They're [[DemonicSpiders pretty hard to kill]], too. [[spoiler:There's also no explanation for what the Scorpio even is. It's not a Predator, since it doesn't devour Color, it just kills it (it even uses it as bait instead of eating it, which is simply bizarre by the story's logic). Is it an alien being from another dimension, which is why it can only appear when significant damage is dealt to a realm? Is it formed from parts of the ruined Void itself? Is it the antithesis of Color? ''[[NothingIsScarier Who knows]]''?]]

* {{Woolseyism}}: As opposed to ''{{Pathologic}}'''s BlindIdiotTranslation. The Russian version is apparently much more aimless and plot thin than the English version, with characters talking to you idly a majority of the time.

* {{Squick}}: Yani takes the form of young ballerina esque girl hiding anxiously in a pillow fort in a shattered-looking squalor of a house, walls splattered with blood and covered with empty beer bottles. The place almost reeks of child abuse. You can see her naked!


* UnfortunateImplications: Many say that the game is a statement against sexism and patriarchy, emphasizing all the negative traits of men in the Brothers, and depicting them as the villains. However, it can just as easily be said that the game simply uses patriarchy without really criticizing it. The fact that the player gets to constantly see naked, vulnerable, and powerless women who constantly give out {{Fanservice}} does not really help this image.
** In a way, this could be considered AlternativeCharacterInterpretation for the entire game.
** It should be mentioned that the nudity is very much meant to be symbolic rather than sexualized beyond Ava, and says more about the player's point of view rather than the game.


* SelectiveSquick: By the end, the game is essentially the Russian version of a DatingSim wrapped up in ActionAdventure elements. Not that you'd think this from all the philosophical musings on life, death, choices, and morality... People who played the game for the latter probably dislike the extremely gratuitous {{Fanservice}}, since the two mindsets rarely mix.
