** Another perspective: "Mysterion" is an obvious parody of Batman. So it follows that Mysterion's alter ego is an expy for Bruce Wayne. The South Park equivalent of feckless, hedonistic playboy fop Wayne would be a foul-mouthed, sex-crazed, drug addict like Kenny McCormick.

** I'm not ashamed to say that the notion of Eric Cartman with a Green Lantern Power Ring made me soil myself in terror.

*** On that subject, who's to say the first version of "Future Cartman" is really all that "stable"? He could still be the same manipulative, sociopathic megalomaniac he was as a child, but as he matured he learned to hide it better (ala Hannibal Lecter), and slimmed down for good measure...

** He did watch another man masturbate before. He's also been in a pile of naked men to stop people from the future from coming back in time, so maybe he learned the taste there.

* In ''Raisins'', Stan tries to win Wendy back by playing Music/PeterGabriel outside her window a la ''Film/SayAnything''. However, instead of playing "In Your Eyes", Stan plays "Shock the Monkey" to Wendy and by extension [[OnTheRebound Token]]. While the humor comes from the [[InnocentlyInsensitive accidental racism and unromantic nature]] of the choice, "Monkey" is also about how jealousy can release one's basic instincts, such as Stan's last ditch effort to salvage his relationship with Wendy and his PassiveAggresiveKombat towards them by the end of the episode.

** The game revealed that the coffee [[spoiler: has cocaine in it.]]

*** The coffee was actually brewed by [[spoiler: methheads at Kenny's garage, implying the coffee Tweek drinks has meth in it.]] Doubles as ultimate FridgeHorror.
** At the same time, odds are he probably did have ADHD or ADD (he does have some symptoms that suggest that) but jitteriness, paranoia, stress, and insomnia is caused by the drugs and the addiction thereof, which would make that FridgeHorror, especially if you think that his parents knew this and did it anyway.

** The game revealed that the coffee Tweek's father puts [[spoiler: has cocaine Crystal Meth]] in it.]]

*** The
Tweek's coffee was to 'calm him down'. A worse, FridgeHorror interpretation is that Tweek's father is actually brewed by [[spoiler: methheads at Kenny's garage, implying checking the coffee Tweek drinks has meth in it.]] Doubles as ultimate FridgeHorror.

* The "The Three Murderers" subplot in "Hell on Earth 2006" and how each killer acts makes perfect sense; Ted Bundy is the only one who doesn't kill anyone on impulse, which is ShownTheirWork on how each killer proceeded with their crimes in real life. Compared to Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy, Bundy was a lot more organised, intelligent, cautious and highly manipulative (which is how he constantly got away with so many crimes), plus that he only killed women. Dahmer and Gacy were homosexual killers with less precaution in their crimes; note that the only victims killed in the episode were male, so it would make sense for them to attack them.

One of Cartman's biggest tools in his more deranged goals (which occur later in the series) is his ability to influence people and get them to do what he wants. It's possible that he either learned this from practicing on his mom without her even attempting to nip it in the bud before it became an issue, or he learned through his upbringing with her that he's just naturally good at it. The events of the episode "Tsst" may have actually exacerbated the matter, since by then, Cartman was a full-fledged sociopath. His tendency/desire to control people may have shifted from his mother, who finally stopped letting him push her around, to the other kids/citizens of South Park. We've seen what Cartman can do [[{{Determinator}} when he really, REALLY wants something]] and needs to [[RousingSpeech rally people toward his cause]], no matter how ridiculous. He evolved from "But m-o-o-o-o-o-m..." to "Es ist Zeit fër Rache!"

*** You think ''that's'' the only FridgeHorror to be found in ''Human Cent-iPad''? As we all know, this episode is a parody of TheHumanCentipede. In it, Creator/SteveJobs believes that by creating a Human Centipede with an Asian man in front, [[ChewToy Kyle]] in the middle, and a young woman in the bottom, they can power an iPad so that it has the capacity for apps that allow it to walk and read on its own. The FridgeHorror kicks in when the Human Cent-iPad is unveiled. No-one is appalled or disgusted at the fact that three people's lives are uprooted (one of which is a [[WouldHurtAChild little boy]]) just to give the iPad a completely unnecessary upgrade, they all just "ooh" and "aah" at it as if it were a normal "next big thing", so to speak. Even Kyle's dad, who subscribed to [[AppleComputer Apple]] in hopes of freeing Kyle, believes that the Human Cent-iPad truly is the device of the future [[note]]which leads to some ''more'' FridgeHorror when you consider how subscribing to [[AppleComputer Apple]] was depicted and how Gerald emerged for it a staunch [[AppleComputer Apple]] supporter[[/note]]. The only reason Kyle [[StatusQuoIsGod was saved]] was because Gerald delivered AnAesop about taking a break from creating the future to enjoy the present. What this means is that sometime in the future (possibly ignoring the FloatingTimeline), [[AppleComputer Apple]] will begin tricking people with an unreadably long product agreement into legally allowing them to uproot their lives in the manufacturing of Human Cent-iPads, and no-one (except possibly [[OnlySaneMan Stan and Kyle]]) will bat an eyelash that their shiny new gadget was once [[PoweredByAForsakenChild THREE PEOPLE with lives of their own]] [[AndIMustScream who now exist to convenience someone else in the most disgusting way possible]].
