* The entire sequence at the end of the movie, beginning with the rain. What is a normal and perfectly harmless occurrence for we humans is amplified into a nightmarish and regular disaster for all bug kind. Amidst the chaos, Hopper still manages to spot Flik, snatch him, and fly off. Flik's friends from the circus ''try'' to come to the rescue, but their rescue attempts are all foiled. (Admittedly, the incident where Hopper lost one of his antennae is pretty funny.) Not even Princess Atta can keep Hopper away for too long, and his final death, albeit very [[KarmicDeath karmic]], in and of itself was '''very''' unsettling.

Amidst the chaos, Hopper still manages to spot Flik, snatch him, and fly with a furious roar, lunges at him (see above image), and snatches him and flies off.

* The movie does a pretty good job of making a cute little goldfinch and its chicks absolutely terrifying. See FamilyUnfriendlyDeath.

** The sound the bird makes; they did a convincing job of depicting what birdsong must sound like from a bug's perspective, because the noises she makes would be right at home in ''Film/JurassicPark''.

* Dear God; ''Thumper''. For some added FridgeHorror, consider the fact that he belongs to the same species as the anthropomorphized, English-speaking grasshoppers. Does he represent a vicious attack dog...or an extremely mentally deranged and violent person? He is more or less the grasshopper version of ''DannyTheDog''. [[RuleOfFunny In the outtakes]], [[spoiler:[[NightmareRetardant he asks if his scream was good enough. In the wimpiest, most non-threatening voice you can imagine.]] Evidently a case of MeanCharacterNiceActor.]]
