(spoilers) 9s kills an "infant" robot late in the game while it cried and called for its mom, however its not shown and 9s was basically insane from grief at this point so it may be a hallucination. It also important to note it isnt a real child but it is a sentient robot thats taking the role of an infant.

There’s a fictional android drug going around, mentioned in a few side quests, and the player can find androids laying around who can only be described as wasted.

At the end of one early boss fight, a building-sized robot gets stabbed in its eye. There is no gore (it's essentially portrayed like stabbing a huge camera lens).

Swords and spears are some of this game's primary weapons. The actual gameplay is not particularly gory, but the cutscenes can be, especially after battles with human-looking opponents. There is stabbing, sometimes there is mutual stabbing, and there is quite a bit of post-stabbing agony.

There are cartoonish rounded robots with clown makeup on. This could technically be considered a yes, but it looks so different from a human clown in a very non-scary way that I doubt it will trigger or scare anybody.

9S has several increasingly disturbing mental breakdowns and anxiety attacks throughout Route C as he gradually grows more and more insane. It’s really disturbing and depressing to watch. Other androids have similar mental breakdowns at the end of certain sidequests.

In Route C, you can be given a negative status effect that gives distorted visual glitches to make it hard to attack enemies. Some of these feature a lot of flashing lights.

Some of the Machines have created a religion in an attempt to mimic humanity, and when its leader dies they seek to "become as gods" like they believe their leader did.

The Machine "Adam" and his brother "Eve" read books to learn about humanity, and it is clear from their discussions about the text that their current book is Genesis.

A major military organization in the game seeks to justify its actions using religious metaphors, though it is not exactly religious per se.

The credits will roll at least five times before the game is actually over. The first two of these have post-credits scenes, partly to alert you that the game is not over. The actual final end credits have scenes throughout *and* after.

There are also many "joke" endings. These are marked by having the credits roll by extremely quickly. There are no scenes after these.

There are 5 different endings, The first 2 are relatively sad, and the next 2 can only be described as extremely depressing and tragic. The true final ending (unlocked by seeing all 4 previous endings) is vague but leans toward hopeful.

A supporting character -a disembodied skull-like head that has somehow bolted himself to a pickup truck, which he uses as a shop to sell merchandise- speeds around the map, and must be shot at before you can interact with and buy items from him. When this happens, the car crashes and stops, though no one is hurt (not even the truck-shopkeeper).
