Body Horror


This refers to unnatural distortion of the body that some may find unsettling.


Warning

This page includes descriptions of body horror and example images hidden under a spoiler tag.




Parasites on a character

Character features that are visually replaced with parasites need to be filtered.



Features in Unusual Places


Features in unusual places (like a mouth on a character's belly) need to be filtered. The exception to this rule is features placed on a character’s appendages (such as hair, tails, etc.)




Hyper Realism


Characters that have out of place hyper realistic parts (such as eyes, mouths, etc) need to be filtered.



Distortion

Characters that appear squashed, stretched or contorted in an unsettling manner, need to be filtered.
