* The flashback to Stalker's back surgery in "Bloodsport." It's made very clear that for whatever reason, the surgeons didn't want to put him under when ''replacing his spinal chord.''

Added DiffLines:

** Just the way the Robert Vance program ([[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman or Vance himself, depending on how you look at it]]) ''looks'' on the computer screen with the dead eyes and the ghost-like pallor is NightmareFuel by itself. The events of the episode just mix in kerosene with the NightmareFuel, and the end where [[spoiler: as he's being deleted we hear his memories going back to childhood, ending with the heartbreaking sound of child!Vance asking for his mama]] just dumps the entire container on and turns it into NightmareFuel. There may not be a single episode that can rival how creepy the villain was and how disturbing that end scene was.


Added DiffLines:

** This line, as a drill bit slowly approaches the POV of the viewer:
--> "I understand. No holding back."

* From "Meltdown": [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ft6mNPeqa6Y Remember, there might be some momentary discomfort.]]

** Heck, Robert Vance's avatar being a sickly pale face is plenty disturbing in and of itself.

* The Joker King from the comic series. He's actually Dana's sociopathic brother who's been idolizing the original Joker since childhood, and has just gotten worse and worse despite his parents trying to find some way to cure his behavior. As an adult, he organizes a massive army of Jokerz from all over the country and leads them in a huge riot all over the city that kills thousands. He's an even bigger StrawNihilist than the Joker ever was, believing that because the solar system and the galaxy and the universe itself will eventually end, life is inherently meaningless as nothing you can possibly do will matter in the end. Unlike the Joker, he doesn't want a grand fight to the finish with Batman; he wants to kill his own family just to spite them, then die himself. He ends up killing himself while fighting Terry.

** With his handler gone, Bane no longer has a source for the Venom he needs (though given his condition, death might be a mercy).

* In "Spellbound", the massive insect world hallucination along with Spellbinder in general who is a school counsellor who the kids should be able to trust but instead he uses them to steal valuables because of his ego being slighted.
** Whats especially nasty is that not only does the poor woman see everyone around her as giant insects, but ''her own jewelry have become monstrous worms and bugs as well''. Even people who ARENT afraid of insects generally dont want to be surrounded by them or have them crawl on you.

* The final fate of Ian Peek in "Sneak Peek". After abusing the intangibility belt, he winds up becoming intangible without it and unable to be selective about what he's intangible to, causing him to fall from the top story of a huge building through floor after floor while batman's constantly trying to swoop to grab him as Ian's screaming for help. Batman finally manages to grab him and encourages Ian to focus to stay solid, and for a second it looks like it works, until he seems to just lose all spirit and slowly sink into the basement floor, laughing for a moment, then screaming/crying until his voice becomes muffled by the floor and begins his descent into ''the center of the earth''. This guy committed murder, but that is still a ''horrible'' way to go.

* The final fate of Talia Al Ghul. She's reunited with Bruce after decades apart, having finally taken over in her fathers stead after he eventually died. She's still young thanks to the use of the Lazarus Pits and wants Bruce to join her in eternal life. [[spoiler: Talia is already dead. Its RAZ AL GHUL occupying her body, having taken his daughters body over when his own decayed beyond use, and wants to take Bruce's as well so he can continue his legacy.]]
* The regional Kobra leader committing suicide rather than let Batman catch him by jumping into a pit of snakes.
* Bane's ultimate fate; after decades of Venom abuse, he's been reduced to a shriveled, comatose wreck who needs a steady supply of Venom to survive. His handler tells Terry that at the end, Bane needed help just to make the Venom, his body had decayed so badly that he couldnt do it by himself anymore.

* The subjugation the kids go through at The Ranch in "Last Resort." Children are brainwashed [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour Big Brother]]-style, denied food, sleep, or even contact with the outside world until they break. Those that get out of line are put into Iso, which basically amounts to sensory deprivation. Bruce mentions that such tactics are used both in cults and on some prisoners of war, so seeing them used on kids...

** And what makes things even worse is that there are real-life "therapeutic" institutions that do all this and worse to kids.
