** In a nice nod to supernatural slasher films, you get chased through the Haunted House by Hambone. He's a huge burned man in overalls, wearing a [[Franchise/FridayThe13th hockey mask]], and has a ''gatling gun for a hand''. There is literally no way to shoot him down before he mauls the players, with him unloading a storm of bullets in your direction. Even when he goes down, he'll be back a little later in the House, now titled "Revenge of Hambone" and firing flaming skulls. He's doing nothing but muffled roaring while this is going on.

*** A "fly trap" chamber whose floor collapses to reveal lumps of rotting flesh beneath.
*** [[TortureCellar Chamber of Horrors]], showcasing the worst of the Medeival era. Seriously, who would include a ''torture chamber'' in a freak show?!

* The horrific boss fight with Junior, a gigantic infantile FrankensteinsMonster that chases you around a huge playpen/arena, complete with giant toys, while a very eerie version of "Pop Goes the Weasel" plays. The only way to finish it off turns out to be having to shoot it so that it stumbles back into the crib-esque "lightning bed" that revived it--the electrical discharge ends up reducing Junior to a huge pile of ashes.

* Even the mooks that ''aren't'' straight-up zombies, like the Flapjack acrobats and the gas station attendants, remain drop-dead horrifying--they keep on flashing those frozen, goofy grins even after you've blown half their heads off and severed their limbs. You can even shoot their bodies [[StrippedToTheBone down to the bone]] or blast them to pieces.

* The "Freak Show" level ''alone'' qualifies. It features several different types of enemies, all of which represent some kind of BodyHorror. This includes flies and maggots with human faces, twin brothers attached at the waist (that laugh when shot to death), and severely tortured sadomasochistic inmates whose eyes have been clamped open and their faces set in terrible rictus grins.

* The ending of the game. The heroes manage to beat Tökkentäkker and send [=CarnEvil=] back to the underworld, just barely surviving a fall from an exploding Zeppelin. They wake up, its daytime and they're back in front of Tökkentäkker's grave. [[spoiler: There's a sudden clatter, and a new token is dispensed. Our hero picks it up, obviously considering it for a moment...and then, despite Betty's pleas, he ''promptly inserts it into the Umlaut statue's mouth!'' The game ends on Umlaut's eyes opening as the screen darkens, his evil laughter rising above Betty's scream of terror.]]

** Once the player gets up on the roof and glances over the edge, a passing wagon knocks them off the roof and into an open grave with a headstone reading, "Rest in Pieces".

** Hell, Midway eventually released a version that added the option to replace Junior with a somewhat less disturbing boss--a humungous and demonic [[KillerTeddyBear teddy bear monster]], appropriately-named Deaddy.

* When Evil Marie is defeated, she gets [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaled]] on the spire of the tomb. Her blood is seen flowing into the water, turning it red as the screen fades to black. Especially worth noting, as this is the only boss [[spoiler: not counting Tökkentäkker himself]] to feature the camera showing different shots of the death to maximize its horror.
