No, this isn't any kind of interpretation about the Bad Ending.
I was wondering how exactly one gets the Bad Ending. I've read that you have to kill 200 monsters to get it. However, I just beat Origins again and I got the bad ending. I killed 120 monsters. >>; That's a far cry from 200. So there's something else going on other than killing a crap load of creatures? Either that or its just less than 200, probably more like only 100.
