* While the anime is pretty famous for its NightmareFuel, the original manga which the anime was adapted from was pretty nightmarish, too. For one, the characters live in a CrapsackWorld where there's lots of people dying left and right in brutal ways, unruly and savage teenagers who run vicious ''bōsōzoku'' gangs, brutal policemen, a shady and corrupt government whose members engage in all sorts of clandestine activities, powerful psychics, and of course an autistic child who was responsible for the destruction of not one city, but two!

And the world they live in is still reeling from World War III, and is thrust into the brink of another World War by the events in the manga.

* And then there's the mutation scene, where Tetsuo [[SuperpowerMeltdown loses control of his powers]] and [[BodyHorror transforms into a]] [[EldritchAbomination giant human amoeba]] that consumes everything it touches, and we also get to see Kaori get slowly crushed to death in a bloody pulp inside of Tetsuo. The anguished cries of Tetsuo and Kaneda accentuate to the terror. And the [[https://archive.org/details/AKIRAOriginalSoundtrack/Mutation.mp3]] does not help...

* There's the nightmare scene. After undergoing the experiment, Tetsuo is left to recuperate in what looks like a child's bedroom. He wakes up to see all the toys come together and form some kind of gigantic teddy bear with a monster-like right hand and a milk-spewing toy car that proceed to try to kill him.

* Takashi's owner dying in the film is equally scary and [[TearJerker sad]] to watch, especially how ruthless the military are in gunning him down. Granted, he pulled his gun on them, arguably to get them to shoot him dead so they wouldn't be able to interrogate him and make him spill the beans, but still...
