- Accidental Nightmare Fuel: A few examples.
- During Violet's flashback, the game talks about how she ran away from home seven years ago, in order to start training in the dark arts. She is said to have rejected her family's holy lifestyle, and one of the reasons given is that she has a "soft spot for male companionship." While the flashback is taking place and Violet agrees to be taught, Violet is seen as a CHILD. This could be the author not thinking things through, since the plot is very amateur, but if that isn't the case...
- Some of the bizarre-looking enemies are rather frightening. The Imp, Liquid Metal Slime, and M Brain are the top offenders.
- Demonic Spiders: The cybernetic enemies you face mostly cast electricity-aspected spells, and usually act first, if you haven't done much levelling. Tyrin, who is weak to electricity, will often be one-shotted before he even has a chance to act.
- Fridge Brilliance: The final fight of the game is intended to be unwinnable. You can, however, win the fight, but are instantly thrown into another, much harder fight after that. Canonically, you are supposed to lose the fight the first time, and the ending will play out as normal. This may seem nonsensical, but when you realize the game is intended to be a prequel to another game where you fight said villain again, everything makes sense.
- Fridge Horror: The game's immature sex-obsessed dialogue and bad writing make it seem like it's been written by a teenager. Then, you find out it's written by a married man...
- Narm: The entire game. It's supposed to be a serious journey of a woman finding her inner strength despite her misdeeds, gaining the trust of people, and fighting for what she believes in, but the terribly childish writing, grammar issues, and over the top sexualization make the game feel like an amateur project made in a few days by a teenager who just started learning how to code.
- So Bad, It's Good: The storyline is insipid, the characters are awful and cringe-inducing, and the combat is incredibly unbalanced... But there's also a strange appeal to it. You just want to see the next bizarre thing the characters will say, or what additional strange thing will happen to them.
- Uncanny Valley: Many of the enemies. They have this unnatural, almost disturbing look to them. The Liquid Metal Slime is arguably the worst.
YMMV / Violet Haunted
