** His updated story from ''Detective Comics'' considerably ups the BodyHorror. Here, it's shown Karlo Senior was a Creator/RayHarryhausen expy, specializing in monster movies, whose preferred medium was a mixture of wax, putty and a chemical called Renu,a gel designed to remold industrial plastics without heat. When, later in life, Basil gets in a disfiguring car accident, he uses the remainder of his dad's stock to remold his face, and later tries to buy more. However, he's unsuccessful - the company pulled it out of the market because it had the bad habit of melting off the hands of the people who worked with it. Eventually, as per Clayface tradition, Basil gets a full-body bath of the stuff.

* When the Joker burns a gangster alive by electrocuting him and all that's left is a charred skeleton.



--> Jack: Nice outfit. Turns, bends down and grabs gun and takes aim only to see that [[NothingIsScarier no one is there]]*

* The shot of Joker's corpse: overhead shot, slowly spinning as it zooms in, and a horrifying grin on Joker's face while an incredibly creepy, synthetic-sounding laugh repeats over and over, ad nauseum. It's so surreal and unnerving that it really does feel like something pulled straight out of a nightmare.

** ''ComicBook/DeathOfTheFamily'': TheJoker is back. He got his face skin back, and used a belt on it to wear it like a mask most grotesque. He got it from the police station, and turned off the lights and killed a load of cops. He seems to be re-enacting his biggest crimes from before, like poisoning the river and paralyzing Barbara Gordon. His motivation this time is to get rid of the Batfamily and Batman's network of allies. Why? Because he thinks that Batman has grown soft and weak thanks to them, and that Batman would be better off without them. Not only that, but it turns out that [[spoiler: he knows about the location of the Batcave, broke into Wayne Manor to take Alfred hostage and torture him, and he knows all the secrets of the Batfamily. When a guy like the Joker becomes TheChessmaster and knows your secrets, you're really in trouble]]!

* 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.]]
