* The unfortunate destruction of the African-American military night club which was set fire by a group called the Legion of White Decency, in effect a Yankee-flavored KKK. One of the survivors, Dick Halloran, would become the cook for the Overlook Hotel. Mike Hanlon's father, Will Hanlon tells his son that on the night the club burned down in 1930 he witnessed a giant bird carry off a LWD member in its talons—the same bird that nearly killed Mike in 1958 when he was an infant! Not to mention the "half-assed enema" Mr. Hanlon received from a lady's high-heeled shoe, when he was nearly trampled during the escape.

* Pennywise itself. It wants to kill you and eat you. If you're a child. But don't worry; if you're an adult, you're fine! Except you're ''not''. It hypnotizes adults with its "deadlights", which also {{mind rape}}s you. Thank god there's a ''good'' equivalent of It The Turtle, otherwise the whole universe would be in danger!

* Pennywise itself. It wants Possibly the most disturbing implication in the novel is the explanation given as to kill you why a town with so many murders and eat you. If you're tragedy as Derry doesn't draw more attention in national news. The surface explanation provided by Mike is that murders tend to not get reported if they happen in a child. But small town, even if there are a lot of them. However, the book strongly implies something far more sinister: the murders don't worry; if you're an adult, you're fine! Except you're ''not''. It hypnotizes adults get reported because ''IT won't allow them to be''. IT's hold over the town is so absolute that it makes people complicit with its "deadlights", which also {{mind rape}}s you. Thank god there's a ''good'' equivalent itself, regardless of It The Turtle, otherwise the whole universe would be in danger!whether they realize it or not, or how good they are as people otherwise.

* ''It.'' [[spoiler:An [[EldritchAbomination interdimensional being]] of pure torment and evil that transported into our universe and crashed landed on Earth...namely, the location that would become Derry, Maine. It settles underneath the town, and every 27 years, it awakens and begins to feast on the town's population of children...why children? Because fear tastes ''[[{{Sadist}} delicious]]'' to It, and nobody is more prone to pure fear than a young child. It will [[IKnowWhatYouFear read your subconsious, take on the form of a nightmarish circus display of your worst fears]], and eventually it will find a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath horrendous way to kill you]] and [[IAmAHumanitarian devour your body]]. And it most enjoys tormenting its young victims in the form of a [[MonsterClown demon circus performer]] known as "Pennywise the Dancing Clown".]]

* The DeusSexMachina. It's just so disturbing and horrible (despite being well-written, of course) that any inkling of fetish appeal is drained away into the bowels of Pennywise's sewer, never to be seen again. As the children fleeing the sewers, from defeating IT the first time, stop for a moment to make an entire connection via their reproductive organs.
