removing as that was Isao Takahata's film.
* Given that ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'' is about two children who starve to death while struggling through the bombings of Japan during WWII, it is concentrated nightmare fuel in the most torturous and painful of ways. It's depressing at best and to this day is Studio Ghibli's most heart-twisting film.

Adding a bit more of Colonel Muska in the nightmare fuel page, including one particularly pleasant bit of dialogue that illustrates just what kind of person Muska is.
Added DiffLines:
** Muska when his true sadistic nature is revealed. And his laughs sound disturbingly similar to the Joker, not surprising considering [[MarkHamill who voices him]]. *** "A superior such as myself has only one option: '''Burn them'''." *''Laughs evilly as he slaughters the soldiers.''*

* ''Anime/SpiritedAway'': ** The opening sequence seems specifically designed to tap into the childhood fear of being left alone in a strange place. When the hero Chihiro's parents eat some cursed food that turns them into pigs, the sun goes down, and all kinds of creepy black blob monsters flood into the streets. Chihiro runs to the river, where more weird creatures disembark from a riverboat. Finally, she starts to fade into nothing. ** This movie is packed with nightmare fuel, from No Face's rampage to the creepy faceless people on the train ride. ** Then there's Yubaba, whose head is scary enough on its own...then you see how proportionately huge it is to her body. Apparently, Yubaba was based physically on the original (and most famous) illustrations to ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', the ones by Sir John Tenniel, such as [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/56/Alice_par_John_Tenniel_32.png/200px-Alice_par_John_Tenniel_32.png The Duchess]]. ** The corrupted No-Face rampaging around the bathhouse and, at various points, eating people, making death threats at the heroine, destroying everything in sight, and puking his guts out. ** The River Spirit in the bathhouse. Its face is like a zombie's. ** The three green severed head things rolling around Yubaba's office that don't talk and eventually pretend to become her child. ** Watching Haku thrash about bleeding from the mouth after being attacked by a swarm of paper birds. ** The theme of losing oneself. [[spoiler: Kohaku]] being reduced to following rules and orders from and hating Yubaba, No Face getting..."sick" from being in the bath house, "Sen" changing so subtly over fewer than 24 hours that neither she nor the audience notices when she first ''ceases to realizes that she was anyone else''. ** Chihiro and Haku are falling through the bowels of the bathhouse, and featureless shadow-things stretch up toward them. What ''are'' those things? ** The creepiest moment in the entire movie is when Chihiro is on the train (the one-way train that never returns, carrying ghosts) and it passes a station, where the ghosts get off. It's implied this is sort of a station where the spirits of the deceased enter into a new realm. Then, Chihiro watches as ''a little girl no older than her'', also a ghost, gets off too. *** Accompanied by incredible FridgeHorror; what if said little girl was in the same situation as Chihiro, but somehow failed and got herself killed? ** When Chihiro's parents turn into pigs.

* ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'': ** Some of the violent scenes. It does get watched by viewers much younger than the target demographic, unfortunately. The opening scene has the Boar God decay and melt, as if in acid, from flesh to the bloodied bone. ** A much later scene in which Ashitaka gets shot and gets a big, bloody, gaping hole in his abdomen...and he's still standing like nothing happened. ** A guy blocked an arrow with his sword, and the impact ''ripped his arm out.'' Apparently, this was all due to superpowers imbued by the demon in Ashitaka's arm. Some viewers consider that violence realistic enough to stop watching. ** The Kodamas. Yes, the creepy little spirits with white bodies and huge void eyes. ** The Tatari Gami, the creatures turned into worm/tentacle monsters by hate, look so truly toxic. Touch one, and your features melt into squirming black glop. San screaming "I don't want to be a demon!" and [[FetishFuel getting drawn into the sea of muck]] didn't help. And those huge black insta-kill blobs of Forest God neckflesh? Just as bad, if not worse. ** The Forest God as a not-a-deer, with the stretchy neck and a flat face. And then it turned into a cross between the night sky and {{Franchise/Godzilla}}. ** The film's showdown when Eboshi's gun makes the Forest Gods neck explode and the body turns into a massive writhing mass of black slime that goes on a rampage in search of its head. Which is kicking around in the metal box it has been put into. ** The hands of the blobs of death that bring about instant death while looking for the head of the Forest Spirit, reaching into the forest and killing everything they touched. ** The empty-eyed boar "ghosts". They are really hunters with poison darts wearing the skins of the dead boar-gods, but that doesn't make it any better. ** Moro's decapitated head slithering across the ground in a last-ditch attempt to get revenge on the woman that shot her. ** The very first scene features Nago, a giant boar that is covered by crawling worms and destroying everything in his path. As he dies, we get a close up of his face, as his flesh is melting from his bones. And then there's Okkoto, who is about to suffer the very same fate. ** The warriors disguise themselves as boars to trick Okkoto. Something about their movement and lack of eyes. The image of them nuzzling up to Okkoto's side is absolutely horrifying. It's even worse: The disguise works because Okkoto is almost blind. They fool his sense of smell by wearing the skins of his slaugtered tribe. ** [[BodyHorror Red, worm-like tendrils growing on Okkoto's skin, covering his entire body, and turning him into a mindless demon boar]]. San getting entangled in them and calling desperately for help [[UpToEleven makes it even worse]].
