- Moral Event Horizon: Neiran's family had crossed it already with their abuse of her, but the deal is fully sealed when they only reveal her origins to her when she has accidentally killed her mother already and don't give a shit about the massive Break the Cutie effects on her.
- What an Idiot!: All of the massive and fatal mess could have been easily averted if Neiran's family and especially her father had bothered to raise her adequately.
- The Woobie: The whole story is made of Reipin/Neiran's Break the Cutie and woobieness.
YMMV / Fushigi Yuugi: Byakko Ibun
