* "Murder on The Planet Express" has to be the creepiest episode in the whole series. It's a homage to ''Film/TheThing1982'' and ''{{Film/Alien}}'', with a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting]] alien creature that can disguise itself as any of of the crew and can swallow a person whole, which naturally leads to ''a lot'' of ParanoiaFuel. [[spoiler:Though it becomes NightmareRetardant at the end when the alien is revealed to have never actually killed anyone, as the entire event was an elaborate set-up designed by his business associate to help build the group's trust in each other.]]

** Nope, still Nightmare Fuel. The alien was ''so'' successful in inducing paranoia (at least in Bender and Fry) and that they the business associate so thoroughly all that was left was a small pile of dust. Granted, you could file that under TooDumbToLive, but the horrified expressions of Fry and Bender are so chilling you'd have a hard time stating that, under the same circumstances, you wouldn't do the same thing.

* From "The Six Million Dollar Mon", [[spoiler: Roberto (a character who would be a good example of Nightmare Fuel to begin with) comes back from the grave when his brain is inserted into Hermes' robot body.]]

* Fry's predicament in "Insane in the Mainframe" is pretty horrific. He's accused of a crime he didn't commit, is unable to identify the real criminal for fear of his life, and then is sent with Bender to an insane asylum for robots just because the human asylums are full. He's subjected to a humiliating physical examination and then ignored when he tries to tell people he's a human (the doctor insists that he ''must'' be a robot, since he's at the robot asylum to begin with). He's forced to share a closet-sized room first with a robot who blows up at the drop of a hat and then [[spoiler:the same AxeCrazy robot who committed the crime he was arrested for]]. He practically starves because the only food he's given is oil (he's surviving on misplaced candy of all things), his coworkers only seem mildly concerned about getting him out (and their attempts to get his sentence overruled are being ignored) and Bender is completely unconcerned with Fry's rapidly deteriorating mental state. His pleas for the Planet Express crew to get him out some way are possibly the most panicked and desperate he's ever sounded throughout the series. [[spoiler:And in the end, he isn't released until he's "cured" of the belief that he's human and is mentally broken into thinking he's a robot.]]

* In the very first episode, there are people lined up to use a ''suicide booth''. Apparently, people taking their own lives has become so common in the year 3000 that suicide aids have become ''commercial products''.
