* The anime's second TitleSequence. It's pure '''chaos'''. The entire sequence is nothing but [[MindScrew dark and twisted imagery bathed in harsh colors]], (for example, a [[http://media.tumblr.com/5ec11bc7470d96865aae3876c95e5c85/tumblr_inline_mwyqb2XRnr1qmpaz4.png screen covered with laughing, demented Light faces]]). The opening song, Music/MaximumTheHormone's "What's Up, People?!", only adds to the disturbing atmosphere, with lyrics such as "''Hey! Hey! A hymn to humanity/Love has gone, People, are you worried?''".

* [[spoiler: [[NauseaFuel Light's death.]]]] In the manga, it's even worse. [[spoiler: you see his dead face on a two-page panel, with a horrifying expression, which is worst upside-down.]]

** The Italian dub's take on [[spoiler:Kira's laughter]]. Why? At first, it sounds like ''sobbing''. This makes its LaughingMad spree more unexpected and unhinged.

** The anime makes it worse. When [[spoiler:Naomi's]] convinced to give their real name to Light, the scene is in blood red and Ryuk goes into a hysteric, spine-chilling laughing fit knowing that [[spoiler:naomi's just signed her own death warrant]].

** This is specifically played for all its worth during [[spoiler:Light's death]]. He's usually drawn with normal eyes, which while still monstrous in appearance, giving some humanity to his appearance (especially when he's flustered or confused). But as he [[spoiler:kills Light]] his eyes are [[BlankWhiteEyes completely white]] with zero traces of any humanity or mercy. No cornea, no pupils, nothing but sclera. WordOfGod says this was done on purpose to remind the audience, for all his quirkiness and simplistic, child-like desire to simply be entertained like a child with toys, [[NotSoHarmlessVillain he is still a Shinigami, a god of death, who cannot be harmed and can kill anybody he desires.]]

* The scene where [[spoiler:Mikami]] is introduced. He intervenes in a debate on TV about Kira [[spoiler:by slaughtering the audience in various gruesome ways]]. ''[[NeckSnap One of them gets his neck twisted in 180° degrees]]''.

* The [[ArtifactofDoom Death Note]] itself. That notebook could have ended up in the hands of anyone, anywhere.
* Light Yagami. Or, rather more accurately, what Light Yagami ''becomes''. He starts out as an innocent idealist (as seen in the Yotsuba Arc) and slowly becomes more and more ruthless, horrifying and generally evil, until he's reached the point where he's only barely recognisable as the same person he was.

* Ryuk can be this. Especially during the earlier chapters, when he's there to provide [[ExpositionFairy Exposition]] on the nature of Death Notes and Shinigami. Those eyes...

* Misa Amane wears an ElegantGothicLolita style dress in one instance, [[spoiler:for when she was committing suicide after she thought Light died.]] Overall, the dress combined with her depressed facial expression and her dark make-up makes her look like a life-sized porcelain doll, to an eerie effect. That scene mirrors an earlier scene where Misa, dressed the same and traveling through the same setting, sings a capella about her devotion and trust to Kira. Though the lyrics are optimistic, her tone, and doll-like dress, makes the scene still quite creepy.



* Takada's fate. [[spoiler:She ends up being '''burned to death''' by Light. And this was after her getting kidnapped and forced to strip in front of Mello. She could not have been in a more terrifying position. At least she seems to be unconscious when she dies.]]

* From the One-shot, there is a kira (or as Near calls him, C-Kira) that is only killing off the elderly that wish to die. Nothing too bad or out of the ordinary...[[OhCrap Until we get to the re-airing of Kira's Kingdom.]] The room has screen panels to not let kira see the audience's face, and than they start verbally ''ripping'' into each other...[[FromBadToWorse and than someone question why C-Kira only killed those over 60, and not them.]] Cue a mob of each and every DeathSeeker there knocking over the panels and '''begging''' for C-Kira to kill them. [[IGaveMyWord He does just that.]] Made even worse by the full page of them rushing towards the camera, giving gross close-ups of their faces as they beg for death.

** In a more FridgeHorror example pertaining to his fate, [[spoiler:before his death is completely confirmed, the destruction of the Death Notes was shown to make Misa and Mikami forget about their times as Kira. Light probably lived long enough to spend his last agonizing moments of burning alive having ''no idea'' what the hell had happened.]]
