** And how do Ness and his friends get there? In the words of Dr. Andonuts himself, life is demolished in the process of time travelling, which is the reason why he transfers their "brain programs" to robotic bodies so they can travel, while their bodies stay behind, without any warrant that their spitirs would come back to their bodies; this thought can be very terryfing beacuse this means Ness and company are doing the greatest sacrifice by renouncing to their human bodies, and go around in robotic bodies unable to feel pain or anything, and even if they manage to win and come back to the present, they still might be stuck in their robotic bodies forever. [[spoiler:Fortunately it doesn't happen. Upon Giygas' defeat, their spirits go back to their human bodies.]]

** The nightmare fuel is eased up with the fact that Dungeon Man wanted this to begin with and he's quite happy the way he is. And he can pretty much stomp any enemy outside.

* The final level of the game, the cave of the past, an eerie and melancholic place with a gray fog covering all the place. You find [[BossInMookClothing powerful enemies]] that easily can [[OneHitKill one-shot]] half of your party, then you find the cave where the Devil's Machine lies, at the end of a [[WombLevel fleshy, intestine-like]] [[BossCorridor corridor]], and the whole thing seems to be breathing and pulsating with life. The eerie, ominous music doesn't help at all.

* Lucas gaining access to his PSI abilities by having his head shoved underwater in a hot spring by Ionia, one of the Magypsies. While we aren't shown the actual act, Ionia's dialogue (as well as what occurs afterwards, with Lucas emerging out of the water) makes it obvious as to what they did to him...

* Speaking of Porky, that's nothing compared to his canonical fate. True, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard he did it to himself]] and he probably deserved it at this point, but still:[[spoiler:he ends up being trapped {{f|ateWorseThanDeath}}orever in the Absolutely Safe Capsule. A capsule that will keep whatever's inside it [[WhoWantsToLiveForever completely immortal]], [[GoneHorriblyRight and can never be destroyed.]] [[TimeAbyss Even after the death of the sun]], ''[[AndIMustScream Porky Minch will still be alive.]]'']]

** There is also Porky/Pokey Minch's original (or unused) death scene. While some people like to see what's coming to him for all he's done, others might find it disturbing when they see him in a sympathetic light. his machine crashes into the ground after his supposed defeat, breaking the glass on it. Pokey tries to reach out to get out of it, but he starts to go limp and he dies. What a way to go.

** Porky/Pokey's situation provokes chilling thoughts: a little boy, yet trapped in the body of an old man and, by this point, is already the series' equivalent to [[VideoGame/MegaManZero Dr. Weil]].

* While not nearly as famous as the one in the sequel, the final battle against Giygas is actually pretty terrifying when placed into an appropriate context. If you were playing as a child in 1989, this was probably the very first video game battle you'd experience where everything you thought you knew about playing games [[OutsideTheBoxTactic doesn't help you]]. You can try and try with all your might, using all the amazing powers you'd earned during your adventure, but no matter how hard you try, he will just continue mocking your ineptitude, telling you your only options are to give up or die. Coupled with the white-on-black contrast of his sprite, the ear-bleeding eeriness of his "music", and the fact that there's a good chance you're in a dark room, for the NES, that was some pretty unnerving stuff.
