* The finale can be considered one. [[spoiler:Special mention goes to Norman's death. Imagine as a kid you grew attached to the {{badass}} guardian throughout the series but you see him not only lose to a GiantSpider but also you get to see him slowly get eaten by the spider while Norman desperately tries to escape. Also there is the FridgeHorror that Max will experience all the dangers he went through every time till he successfully defeats Skullmaster.]] ** In addition, who all remembers the previous loop? Virgil does, but he has some magic. Max does, but he was at the cause and the Mighty One. Since Virgil remembers, we can rule it out being just the Mighty One. Skullmaster has magic and was at the center of the spell that reversed time (i.e., even the Skullmaster might remember the past attempt). *** Considering Max is the one who instigated the time jump, it's likely that he - either consciously or sub-consciously - chose who would remember the previous timeline. If this is the case, it's unlikely he would have chosen Skullmaster as one of those to be in the know. If it's not the case... uh oh. * There's just something about the line "The Sun nourishes all things, even evil" that is far more scary and badass than the vampire who said it had any right to be. * One of the few highlights of the tie-in videogame was the soul-chilling portrait of Skullmaster that appears on the GameOver screen. * The episode where the denizens and soulless people chase down after Max. By and far one of the most intense episodes in the series, especially when Virgil recounts what happened to the last Mighty One. Max can't run, Max can't hide. We learn the previous Mighty One jumped off a cliff and fell to his death. Max is about to repeat the same stunt but then it turns out that [[spoiler:Max grabbed a branch, opened a portal and dumped them at the bottom of the Marianas Trench, where it will take years for them to return]].

* During one episode, Skullmaster gives a tribe of island natives a potion that contains dragon blood. Said potion causes the natives to [[PainfulTransformation shift agonizingly]] [[BodyHorror into horrific lizard-monsters]] that pretty much lose all sense of themselves. To make matters worse, one of the natives only drinks ''some'' of the potion, leaving him completely aware of who he is but trapped halfway between normal and lizard-man.

* In the episode "Max vs. Max", spend even a little bit of time thinking about what would have happened to Maximilian if Max hadn't stopped him from escaping with Skullmaster at the end of the episode. Best case scenario for the kid is becoming a mindless {{Lizard|Folk}}Person, worst case Skullmaster would probably just kill him, possibly in some horrible way. The kid has no idea just how lucky he got there.

* Special mention has to go to Spike.

** The episode involving the evil mummy and his snake minions opens with a depiction of one of Venom's sacrifices; we see a boy chained to an altar, mishapen figures hissing and bowing all around (we'll later learn they're ''giant snakes in robes''), and then, as the moonlight touches the amulet, we hear this horrific ''sizzling'' sound that almost, but not quite, drowns out his anguished screams...

** One episode deals with people's hands dragging them across the city so it can be chopped off (Isis is desperately looking for a replacement part for Osiris.) We get to see a victim struggle against his own hand as he is dragged across town.

* The episode ''Clown Without Pity'' was terrifying enough with Freako and his mutants, but there's one part that may be overlooked: after Max leaves Norman and Virgil, he encounters this creepy fat lady, who is then never seen again or given any backstory. She just ''exists''.

** Lockjar the spirit of violence, commits a murder so horrendous that we don't see anything. We just have Norman's word that we don't see what he did. Considering that this series rarely backed away from showing mutations or violence, this really leaves an imprint.
