** J'onn's torture. It, quite frankly, looks like someone digging their fingernails inside someone's face. All [[BloodlessCarnage bloodless]], though. Even so, it's terrifying, especially when he's essentially ''absorbed'' by another martian.

* The end of "Kid Stuff," where Mordred's spell to get rid of all grown-ups is reversed when Mordred is tricked into turning into an adult himself, and his mother Morgan Le Faye notes that the spell giving him eternal youth is now broken, leaving him only with [[AgeWithoutYouth eternal life]]. As if simply thinking about the ramifications of this isn't enough, the last shot of the episode shows Morgan tenderly wiping the drool from the mouth of a glassy-eyed old man.
* The episode "Dark Heart." A planet being devoured piece by piece, the inhabitants mostly being able to do nothing as they see the wave of machines sweeping towards them.
* In "Destroyer," {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} describing what he's going to do to Superman while he's writhing on the ground in pain from the [[AgonyBeam Agony Matrix]]. Specifically, Darkseid pulls out a Kryptonite knife and tells Superman that he's going to carve out his heart and place it on a pike as a trophy.

* A rather small one, but the Justice League women being pitted together in "Grudge Match." Huntress and Black Canary manage to free Shayera and Vixen pretty easily, but then they find out they have to fight Wonder Woman (who could match Superman in terms of power). [[OhCrap Their reaction]] [[JustifiedTrope is entirely justified]]. During a rather brutal fight, a few of the League girls come frighteningly close to a bloody death. Hawkgirl almost smashing Vixen's head with her mace, for example.

* "Panic in the Sky." Just...just "Panic in the Sky." The League just lost control of their KillSat superweapon that they save for emergencies like the events of "Dark Heart," which they fear may have killed hundreds if not thousands of civilians. Understandably, the President is ***ed about this and the founding members of the League, sans Batman, decide to submit to government custody until they can sort it out. While they're gone and the Watchtower is still out of commission, Cadmus sends [[Comicbook/PowerGirl Galatea]] and an army of Ultimen to attack the Watchtower and kill--not arrest, not defeat, ''KILL''--every last person on the Watchtower. That includes the non-powered civilians who run the Watchtower's everyday systems. In particular, we're treated to a group of those non-metahumans hiding in a safe room when one of the Shifter clones rips the door open, then transforms into a ''TyrannosaurusRex''. The workers are clearly ready to fight for their lives as they charge at her and the Ultimen are eventually defeated, but one shudders to think about [[EatenAlive what probably happened to them]].

Sweet dreams, Tropers....[[EvilLaugh maniacal laugh]]...

* The portrayal of Darkseid in the Franchise/{{DCAU}} is often seen as the definitive portrayal of his character (outside of comics) and for good reason: he is a terrifying character. Not just because he's the only one who can take Superman at his full power, but because he is ''relentlessly'' evil. Other villains had reasons that you could like them; at least ComicBook/LexLuthor was suave, and at least ComicBook/TheJoker had a happy attitude and comic timing. Darkseid is not that kind of villain: he is [[KnightOfCerebus the absolute embodiment of evil]].

* The twist of "Wild Cards" gives a healthy does of ParanoiaFuel: [[spoiler:SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker set up the bombs in Las Vegas just to increase viewership so that he could broadcast Ace's hypnotic waves to drive them all insane. And guess [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou who's watching the television while Ace blankly stares at the screen...]]]].
