Added DiffLines:

* A mix of Nightmare Fuel and Tear Jerker is when Dexter, Mee Mee and Lee Lee find Dee Dee on a clearing of the forest in "Dee Dee's Tail" after she has convinced Dexter to turn her into a horse. What makes it creepy is the way they quickly decide to mere use her and in the end, how Dexter says they are there to *tame her once and for all* while she begs them to leave her be. It's nerve wrecking to see how they are treating a sister and best friend and how it didn't take long for the change in treatment to happen (they no longer even see her as Dee Dee, but as a wild horse that they want as theirs) and how their attitudes show that they believe that in order to tame her, they have to break her spirit. Considering the implications and how free spirited Dee Dee is, this makes this troper shiver every time.

* Most of the episode "The Bus Boy", revolving around kids stories about what lurks in the dark back of the schoolbus. Pleasant stories such as a giant monster that eats little children and appears as a giant fanged mouth in the darkness, a giant spider with a human head, and a tear in reality that drags in any child that strays too close. Worse, its apparently TRUE to some extent, as a boy named Billy had apparently disappeared back there decades earlier, and when Dexter drops his pencil near the dark area, ''something grabs it and drags it into the darkness''. [[spoiler: Thankfully, it turns out the "monster" is Billy himself, now a grown man calling himself Bill who got trapped in a wad of bubble gum and has been living back there ever since, but is quite a nice, well adjusted guy despite of this. ]]

[[AdultFear At least we know how he's still alive.]]]]

* "Ewww, That's Growth" has Dexter trying to accelerate his body growth so he can be big enough to ride a rollercoaster. His experiment succeeds, but as soon as they arrive at the rollercoaster, they must go down an impossibly long queue, and by the end, Dexter's gotten much bigger than most of the other people waiting for the rollercoaster. Once an elongated Dexter finally gets on the rollercoaster and enjoys the ride, his head crashes into the upper part of a tunnel. [[GoryDiscretionShot The scene abruptly cuts to a THE END card]]. And an uncomfortable feeling will most likely come over you.

* There is an extremely disturbing episode, "Monstory", where Dee Dee won't stop telling Dexter 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!'"]]

* 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 ([[BigLippedAligatorMoment 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?]]]]

* Future Mandark's fate in "Ego Trip". [[spoiler: His FatBastard body violently mutates, causing all his fat to shoot up into his cranium, making his whole body EXPLODE, leaving only his brain]]. It's one of the worst cases of NauseaFuel in the show's history.
** Speaking of ''Ego Trip'', the scene where Boss!Mandark ''publicly whips'' Number 12!Dexter. With a ''laser whip''. Dexter's agonized screams are downright haunting. And even worse? It's implied that Mandark has done this to him '''more than once'''! ''JESUS...''
-->'''Boss!Mandark:''' Now make a wish!

* The Hal expy's NothingIsScarier takeover of the lab in "Ultrajerk 4000". The worst part is that the robot was designed to be Dexter's perfect replica (appearance notwithstanding).

** The crazy and unsettling music in the backround being played while Dee Dee and the rest of the family are making those disturbing noises doesn't help either.

** The episode's title card. While humorous, it's something you never thought you see the characters do in official artwork, especially in Dee Dee's case.
