Since this is part of the SEED series, C.E. 73 Stargazer has plenty of terrifying moments to go with.
- Mudie Holcroft's death, where a pack of Kerberos BuCUE Hounds dog-piled her mobile suit and stabbed her continually with their beam fangs. Her screams made it all the more disturbing.
- Speaking of Junius Seven, the opening scenes of the Stargazer OVA depict the initial fallout of the Colony Drop involving said ruins. Up close. Large areas surrounding the impact sites are in total chaos, with survivors desperately trying to get out while aid efforts are severely hampered, in an unsettling parallel to certain hurricane disasters. Which is followed by a group of mobile suits proceeding to gun down everyone in the vicinity.
- While the same happened everywhere, special mention goes to China. Rescuers cancelled the relief effort for Beijing because it's completely being wiped out from the face of the Earth. All you can see is a giant crater.
- The revelation that the GINN Insurgent Type is piloted by three Coordinator children, doubles as a Tear Jerker when it's revealed that they did it because their parents died at the hands of Naturals.
