The premise of the show can be considered this. The fact that a high school chemistry teacher/family man can turn out to be a cold-blooded killer is just terrifying. And now for some specific examples:

** [[spoiler:The aftermath of the explosion is horrifying to watch; we see several officers on the ground, bloody and injured/dead. The most disturbing part has to be the anguished, agonized screams of Vanco after getting his leg blown off at the knee]].

** Of course, Harvey Dent got off easy compared to Gus. On Gus, the entire right half of his skull is exposed, covered only by a [[ChunkySalsaRule bloody, chunky]], torn stretch of flesh, [[EyeScream his eye socket entirely hollow]] - [[NauseaFuel save for a twitching severed muscle cord.]]]]

** According to the same graph, Walt ends the series killing 19 people. It gives viewing the season one episodes, when Walt was still reluctant to kill and insisted to Jesse that violence was not an option, an added level of horror. * The very premise of the show. As Bryan Cranston and others have repeatedly stated in interviews, Walt is not all that different than other regular people in terms of moral decency when he starts out. But a combination of external factors and psychological issues beneath the surface pushed enough buttons to send him on his path. That means that ''anyone in real life'', including ''you'', has the hidden potential to become a Heisenberg.

* [[spoiler:Gus in "Box Cutter", climaxing with him slitting Victor's throat with the titular instrument. ''"Get back to work."'']] ** Seeing the contents of a white barrel. 'Nuff said. * In "Cornered", Walt pays three of Gus's Spanish-speaking laundromat workers to clean his meth club just to spite Gus. Then, Tyrus comes to put the women on a "bus to Honduras." Of course, Walt immediately senses something off and pleads Tyrus to have Gus only blame him and not take it out on the workers. Tyrus responds "he does," implying that Gus may be sensible enough to not ''blame'' the three innocent workers but he will probably kill them due to circumstances. ** This becomes all the more disconcerting when, in Season 5, Walt and Saul use the DeadlyEuphemism of "send him to Belize" to describe killing someone. Thinking back on that "bus to Honduras" makes that particular scene all the more chilling...

Like in "Bullet Points," you have the ruthless cartel hitmen ambush a Los Pollos Hermanos refrigerated truck. The way they off the guards in this one (seeing how the previous attack was foiled by Mike) is to lock them in the back of the truck, hook up a tube from the exhaust pipe to the ventilation system, then lay on the gas pedal to suffocate them to death. You can see the guards' desperation as they make a last-ditch attempt to shoot out the doors to escape only to be overcome by the fumes. **Walt pays three of Gus's Spanish-speaking laundromat workers to clean his meth club just to spite Gus.

* Not as graphic as the rest of these, but when Gus says [[spoiler: ''I will kill your infant daughter'']] a shiver will run down your spine. * Gus's friend and co-founder of Los Pollos Hermanos Max Arciniega being [[BoomHeadshot headshotted]] and KilledMidSentence by Tio right before his eyes. Not only is Gus restricted from attacking Tio, but he is practically tortured and forced to look at his dead companion.
