Main character Klaus is often shown having flashbacks or nightmares because of trauma he's suffered due to his powers and his father. These usually send him into having some sort of anxiety or panic attack until he uses drugs to stop them.

The protagonist and a certain character share a scene in the bathroom, where the latter is clearly hyperventilating while the protagonist is uncomfortable, scared. A dark shadow is spread on the floor and the character portrait changes to portray their anxiety. This scene is unskippable.

There are also several other, debatable, moments of anxiety in which the protagonist is clearly unnerved as they face a manifestation of their phobia. The last boss also features similar traits of anxiety.
