The Visual Novel

  • Adorkable:
    • Hanzo at times, especially noticeable right after the route split when he seems embarrassed at Ieyasu praising his calligraphy. In a later chapter, he takes Enju to an abandoned temple he had visited early in his life; the temple itself has long fallen into ruin, but strangely, Hanzo is more disappointed that the garden isn't blooming. The reason he took her there? One of the monks told him, "If you ever want to show someone flowers, bring them here."

    • Gekkamaru too, for his eagerness to please Enju. He even agrees to wear a dress because she jokingly said she'd like to see it.

The Video Game

  • Funny Moments:
    • The opening. As in, who in the heck expected that after an exposition of how Nightshade is going to be this badass hero, the first scene is the very Nightshade himself tied up and in distress!? "So, pathetic meddler! Your career is over before it has begun" indeed!
    • The first continue screen death trap opens with this:
      Sutekh: Farewell, Lampshade!
      Nightshade: Nightshade!
      Sutekh: Oh, sorry.
  • Memetic Mutation: Thanks to JonTron: "Actually, the crowbar snaps in two" has became one, as well as the lines that precede and follow it. (Nightshade: The Claws of HEUGH)
  • Vindicated by History: With the rise of the Internet (And especially the review by The Happy Video Game Nerd), people who try the game tend to love it.

The Comic

  • My Real Daddy: John Ostrander who wrote her in the Suicide Squad and Bill Willingham who wrote her in Shadowpact.
  • The Woobie: Between her troubled relationship with her father and her mother and brother dying, she's had a pretty rough life.
  • What The Hell, Costuming Department?: Eve's New 52 outfit is essentially a very low cut strapless cleavage revealing bit of generic black bodypaint with no real distinctive traits while all of her former costumes had a high neckline emulating the metallic rounded double band collar of the Nightshade's royal family and showed no cleavage whatsoever. With the gold waist and thigh ornamentation she looks more like Superwoman (evil Mirror Universe Wonder Woman/Lois Lane) than herself.
