* Then there's Gel-arshie, the mascot for a gelatin dessert made by the Fluffy-Puff company. Gel-arshie is a translucent, bright red version of Marshie with a distorted voice and a floating ''visible brain'' in his center.

* [[http://www.hrwiki.org/w/images/c/cf/Dongrel.PNG The Dongrel torso in ''VideoGame/ThyDungeonman III''.]] That thing should go back to the ''SilentHill'' universe where it belongs.

* Strong Sad keeps [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sadjournal/index.html a secret blog]] that was updated from 2002 to 2005, and surprisingly, it's genuinely sad. It's spooky from the moment you enter, with a drab grey color scheme, the depressing title "Strong Sad's Litany of Crushed Hopes and Dreams", and his creepy black-and-white profile picture (currently Bull Shannon from ''NightCourt'', with previous pictures including Count Orlok from ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'' and a freaky caricature of Edgar Allen Poe). Some of the content is pretty funny, as Strong Sad has a dry sense of humor and leads a very strange life, but most of it is shockingly dark for ''Homestar'': Strong Sad is shown to be pitifully lonely, nearly emotionless, severely abused, obsessed with counting, and prone to wasting hours of his time on pointless tasks, and he has bizarre and eclectic tastes, no talent in anything, and no drive to ''do'' anything. Given how, in the main Toons, Strong Sad's depression is usually PlayedForLaughs, it's [[MoodWhiplash very upsetting]] to see it portrayed as the awful living hell that it [[RealityEnsues really is]].

*** "Doo-hoo-hoo" is also the sound he makes when he's distressed. More likely it's meant to imply that he's a totally ineffectual ruler who wouldn't be taken seriously even if he did order executions.

While the series runs primarily on RuleOfFunny, some of the attempts [[GoneHorriblyWrong went in]] [[NightmareFuel a totally different direction]].

that isn't to say that it can also scare its audiences.

* "Marxie" (seen on main page 26) is also fairly unsettling, with flashing eyes, a furious expression and a semi-exposed brain. It doesn't help, either, that Marxie explodes soon after his appearance.

** There's also a bit of FridgeHorror just before that scene where Marzipan asks the King of Town if [[spoiler:he has the authority to execute people. The King responds with "Do the words 'doo-hoo-hoo' mean anything to you?" That jolly laugh implies that not only IS he able to have people executed, but he actually [[CompleteMonster ENJOYS it.]] ]]

* The 2015 Halloween toon, " The House That Gave Sucky Tricks," is pretty tame compared to other Halloween toons like "Jibblies 2" or "I Killed Pom Pom" or "Doomy Tales of the Macabre," but there is one scene where [[Spoiler:Homsar is about to be executed via guillotine. Thankfully, the scene cuts away just as the blade comes down. Worst of all, this is NOT an Easter egg like the previous Halloween toons.]]
