* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SWr_niEGSg promo]] that has Dexter laying in a fetal position while a voice in his head keeps calling him stupid, ending with Dee-Dee and Mom knocking on his door with concern. WhatWereTheySellingAgain

** What's especially disturbing is that the announcer of the promo implies that Dexter's hearing the voice because he's gone off the deep end.

* There is an extremely disturbing episode, "Monstory", where Dee Dee won't stop telling Dexter a story that he thinks is just going to be one of her knock-knock jokes, and in desperation, he reaches into his jacket to retrieve a vial that will leave her mute. Instead, he obtains a vial that has a warning on it that drinking it will turn you into a monster. He gives it to Dee Dee who turns into a horrific beast, and the episode essentially consists of the two of them going back and forth drinking the vial and increasing in size, but while Dee Dee gets more disturbing by the second, Dexter's mutations are weak to say the least, until he drinks the contents of a nuclear plant and grows into an enormous Godzilla like creature. The episode concludes with Dee-Dee becoming an ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING spider creature that pins Dexter to the ground and speaks with a high pitched squealing, echoing voice: [[spoiler:"So the boy told the girl in the park on the pony... 'Knock knock!'"]]
** Not to mention that they get into an honest-to-goodness ''kaiju battle'', and while it's more funny than scary (Dexter and Dee Dee even [[CallingYourAttacks name the attacks they throw at each other]]), there's quite a bit of collateral damage to the city they're in.

There are a few close up shots of their fight though, during which we actually see them ''bleed'' and Dee Dee bites Dexter. One of the worst parts though is at the end of the fight, [[TheBadGuyWins Dee Dee has beaten Dexter]] and he slowly falls backwards crushing buildings as he falls and people run for their lives, and Dee Dee just watches him fall with a PsychoticSmirk.

*** The [[SilentAntagonist complete lack of dialogue]] and the nervous sweating on the ninja's face as he prepares to hit himself only add to the horror.

* "Chicken Scratch". [[AnimationBump The animation is more fluid (and downright ugly)]]. It really gets scary when Dexter crazily scratches himself (including on ''metal spikes''). It didn't help that his maniacal laughter was lifted from "The Laughing".

** Even before turning into a nightmare, Dexter's "sweet dream" has some disturbing imagery. We see a montage of Dexter absorbing all the knowledge in the world; in one scene his head becomes a mouth that eats equations, and in another he [[EatBrainForMemories sucks Einstein's brain out with a straw]].

** While the brain transplant is ludicrous (it would essentially be a ''body'' transplant for the person the big brain belonged to), brain surgery is [[TruthInTelevision actually]] performed without general anesthesia (although, local anesthesia is used). Only if the person is awake, thus capable to think, move and speak, brain surgeons can have an immediate feedback of what they are doing.

* The episode "Jeepers Creepers, Where is Peepers?" featured Dexter and Dee Dee's magical friend Koosie working together to save Peepers (another magical being) from an [[EvilIsSexy anime villain]], in one scene we see a rather disturbing graphic look at Peepers as he is having his energy sucked off. [[spoiler: HE'S INSIDE OUT]]. Also, [[spoiler: he then ([[BigLippedAlligatorMoment somehow]]) goes from a BlobMonster to a flesh-colored dragon and fortunately stomps on the villain, [[FridgeHorror but how do we know that's not an effect from the machine he was trapped in?]]]]

* From "Aye Aye Eyes", there's the Creepy Eyed Girl's ThousandYardStare.

* From "Aye Aye Eyes", there's the Creepy Eyed Girl's ThousandYardStare.ThousandYardStare.
* The ending of "Paper Route Bout", which involved Dee Dee competing in a newspaper-delivering contest with a group of delinquent ninja kids. At the end of the contest, both her and the competing ninja are tied at 0, with only one house left. Dee Dee lands her paper and wins the contest, while the ninja gets [[ThrowingTheDistraction distracted by a traveling salesmen selling Chinese food and small animals.]]
** The creepiness comes in ''after'' Dee Dee's victory. The ninja's dishonored teammates punish him by forcing him to whack himself with a newspaper. He gets on his knees and holds his paper in a way that's eerily similar to the act of {{Seppuku}}. He then hits himself in the head and fall on his face, ending the episode.
*** In other words, they just depicted a villain committing suicide. On screen. In a ''kid's show.''
*** The [[SilentAntagonist complete lack of dialogue]] and the nervous sweating on the ninja's face as he prepares to hit himself only add to the horror.

*** There's also the fact that it was [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Dee Dee's fault that Dexter was there in the first place,]] because Dee Dee tampered with a teleporter that sent him to the alien prison. And, in an act of sheer stupidity, [[spoiler: ''[[OhNoNotAgain she sends him back there again.]]'']]
