** Muska when his true sadistic nature is revealed. And his laughs sound disturbingly similar to the Joker, not surprising considering [[MarkHamill who voices him]].

* 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.

* ''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.
