YMMV / Brutal Series

Provides Examples Of:

  • Moral Event Horizon: Wiremu's attempt to rape Finni is not only horrific even by the standards of the story, but makes Sve's curb stomping of him completely justified in the eyes of the readers.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Cisca's death. She nearly has her scalp cut off, has her nails pulled off one by one, has her fingers cut off at all joints, has her eyes gouged out and has all her teeth punched out (disfiguring her jaw in the process) before FINALLY being killed from having her heart stepped on.

  • Shipping Goggles: Nearly all readers agree that Spain and Lovi are intended to be a couple, notably because the pairing is popular in Hetalia; however, the author has explicitly stated there's no (intended) romance in their alliance.
  • Stoic Woobie:
    • Vash. After growing up on the streets and orphanages of a place as harsh as District 2, then letting himself be trained as what amounts to a child soldier just to get food and shelter, there's nothing the kid needs more than a hug. Yet he's basically the series' Emotionless Guy.
    • Igris and Lude (the latter only in the 4th What If) try to be this, but both end up as Not So Stoic.
  • Viewers in Mourning
  • The Woobie:
    • EVERYONE. IN. THESE. GAMES. Even Wiremu kind of counts, since nobody likes him and thinks he's a disgusting creep. Special points to the victors, since they're still traumatized.

    • Raivis Lithu is already a whimpering little puppy that "wouldn't hurt a fly", and he earns his woobieness by remaining this way, even while getting his finger chopped off and being killed slowly by poison from a muttated vine.
