** The place where he's fought in the end makes it worse. Basically, it's like being inside a DisneyAcidSequence, only significantly less cute. The guy is ''supremely'' creepy, especially because this is usually a sci-fi show. This guy isn't an alien, or someone who got this hands on phasers. He's a HumanoidAbomination who ''steals happiness'' and creates a bizarre netherworld with AlienGeometries at his command. Everything about him takes the subverted cuteness that makes a MonsterClown up to a cosmic, reality-bending scale, and we never find the man behind the curtain, never get the "ah, here's his Holodeck-maker" or "'stealing happiness' means his AppliedPhlebotinum does this or that to your brain chemistry" DoingInTheWizard moment... and it also doesn't work like any magic we see with Hex and Charmcaster (and Gwen, once she steals Charmcaster's book). He doesn't play by the rules we know, he and everything about him simply '''is.''' He will feed on your very soul. He will turn your reality outside in. How? He just '''does,''' it's just what he ''is.'' If HP Lovecraft had created TheJoker, you would have this guy.

** This was retconned as the Hightbreed merely imprisoning him ''Ultimate Alien'', but still creepy...

to:

** This was An Ultimate Alien episode later retconned as this scene so the Hightbreed merely imprisoning him ''Ultimate Alien'', but still creepy...Highbreed had just taken Simian to his ship rather than killed him. You read it right- the original ending was so creepy and dark the writers felt the need to retcon it.

* [[EnfantTerrible Kevin 11]]; the character initially appears as being a mere punk with powers... until we find out he is ready to kill thousands of people just to get money. The SlasherSmile he displays in some scene also contribute.

to:

* Proctor Servantis, leader of the Rooters and serial [[MindRape mind rapist]]. His design is creepy enough, but then there's also his ''voice''. Charles Adler is usually known for playing funny characters, [[PlayingAgainstType but there is nothing funny about Servantis]], who is a [[TheStoic chillingly composed]] [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] KnightTemplar.

** Well, when you undergo plastic surgery via the hand of someone best described as an [[TheIgor Igor]] {{Expy}}, there's bound to be a line that gets crossed... namely, Gwen catching the leftover scent of the man's ''blood'' in the operating room. We get a GoryDiscretionShot, of course, but the cast knew he'd gotten a back-alley surgery because there was just that much blood left over. (As for the good doctor? We find ''him'' in a freezer case, quite dead.) There are a lot more deaths kept offscreen. ''Omniverse'' hints that he might still be out there. (Of course, as a LighterAndSofter series, he'll probably be more like his first appearance than his second if he does. Then again, ''Omniverse did'' give us [[VileVillainSaccharineShow Malware]].)

** The whole idea of the dream eater is kind of scary. Imagine the most scared you've ever been during the worst dream you've ever had. Now imagine a creature that is capable of putting you back there, and ''keeping you there 24/7 indefinitely." Ben and company had to call a Galvan doctor to SaveTheVillain because there's no way to remove it without your face going with it - and Galvans are the smartest race in the ''universe.'' That means if you ran into this thing in the wild, there would be absolutely nothing you or anyone would ever be able to do about it; Earth doesn't just not have the means to remove it, the human brain may be ''incapable of the smarts it takes to develop such a thing.'' Pretty much any AndIMustScream scenario is scary, but this one makes ''damn sure'' you're gonna be screaming. Forever.

** It's then revealed multiple girls suffered the same fate. As the protagonists try to figure out what happened with the help of who seems to be the local superhero. Eventually turns out said hero, despite possessing light powers, ''is'' the responsible: he charges his powers by feeding over energy from schoolgirls he seduces, eventually turning them into zombies slaves that he relies on to feed him even more. His habit to drain energy from them is played subtly like rape. To make matters worst, he succeeds in draining ''Gwen''.

*** And then his zombies slaves turn on him at the end, draining most of his energy and leaving him weakened with a zombified face. [[AssholeVictim Granted, he deserved it]], but that was still creepy.

* In the episode "Last Laugh", [[FishPeople Ripjaws]] deals with a robber by ''pulling him underwater''. The robber isn't seen again.

** Look at [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gwen_is_frozen.png Gwen]] for example. The way her eyes are shut tight in fear, her mouth frozen in an eternal scream of agony, the way her hands are trying to reach out futilely for help... She could've been frozen ''forever''...
