* In ''Arkham Asylum: Tales of Madness'', an innocent Arkham guard named Greg is held hostage by a bunch of villains, all in [[ArtShift different art styles]], as they take turns telling scary stories for the right to kill him. Greg narrates at the beginning of the story that he survived the ordeal, but at the end they ask who told the scariest story, and when Greg says they're ''all'' scary and can't choose, they close in on him. Cut to weeks later where Greg's fiancee wants to see him, but when she does she finds [[spoiler:he's in a catatonic state with the villains' names carved into portions of his body, his sanity utterly shattered. To top it off he reveals they call him "Jigsaw Man"]].

* In Scott Snyder's run on the 2011 reboot of Batman, we're introduced to an AncientConspiracy in Gotham. [[UpToEleven One who knows Gotham better than Batman.]] This, in of itself, isn't particularly terrifying. However, the more Batman investigates, the more he discovers just how powerful they are. And then they capture Batman himself, drug him and start to drive him completely insane in an enormous maze beneath Gotham. Seeing someone as cool and collected as Batman raving and terrified is shocking.
** And now Snyder's added the Joker to his run. And thus we're greeted with a [[http://assets1.ignimgs.com/2012/07/02/batmanpromojpg-9d705f_800w.jpg terrifying, pants-shitting-worthy image of Joker]] holding his cut off face, as it was cut off in the beginning of the New52 reboot of Detective Comics, teasing his return. And the storyline title? it's called "Death of the Family". [[NothingIsScarier That's right, somebody close to Batman will die again]].

** To add more fuel to the fire. Here's the legendary image that might be a good way (in the victim's perspective) to show how horrifying he is. Definitely a hideous sight before one's demise. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e7/Croc01.jpg Here's the link.]]

* Batman's awkward [[TheUnsmile "smile"]] that he gives Jack Napier in the Axis chemical plant can come off both as both Narmy and this. Especially, for Jack's brief perspective when Batman does his legendary StealthHiBye to him.
--> [Jack staring at a smiling Batman]
--> Jack: Nice outfit. Turns, bends down and grabs gun and takes aim only to see that [[NothingIsScarier no one is there]]*

-->'''Joker:''' ''...And now, comes the part... Where I relieve you, the little people, of the burden of your failed and useless lives. But, as my plastic surgeon always said: "If you've gotta go, go with a smile!" [[EvilLaugh Hee hee hee hee ha ha HAAA!!]]''

* The scenes with Joker wearing skin colored make up in place over his now bleach white skin. Also, the scene where Joker challenges Batman to reveal himself after the Joker himself "took off his make up". Bruce then pauses the video on Joker's sinister grin and then we are treated to a flashback where it is revealed that The Joker as a young Jack Naiper killed his parents. The scene flashes back to Bruce who then turns to the screen in complete shock and the very next scene show is a [[NightmareFuel close up and freeze frame]] picture of Joker's [[SlasherSmile sinister grin]] looking straight at the viewer.



* When the Joker calmly gives a lighthearted speech to the city that ends on the note "Oh, by the way, I've randomly decided that I'm going to kill you all with the grossest-looking gas ever." You see it coming and everything, but the way he played it is creepy beyond reason.


Added DiffLines:

* When Batman starts beating the tar out of the Joker:
** He flat-out says he's going to kill him.
** The Joker tries gut-punching Batman and winds up breaking his hand.
** The cold, ominous delivery of the line ''"I made you? You made me first."'' Once the Joker hears that, he's so scared he starts blubbering.
* That long, drawn out scene that ends with the Joker falling to his death. You know he's screwed, he sure as hell knows he's screwed and there's nothing he can do about it.
