* The bumper sequence with the mannequin sillhouettes, [[EpilepticFlashingLights flashes]], and creepy minimal jazz music.

* While not aired on Nickelodeon itself, an ident on Nicktoons Network in 2004 named "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ze4URd3pwng The Dancer]]" could qualify. Its UncannyValley dancers that are always up in your face and loud, fast-paced wonky music probably spooked more than a few younger viewers. The fact that it would air at [[ParanoiaFuel unexpected times]] during the commercials didn't help, making it a JumpScare for some. YMMV, as some may find it nostalgic.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfbp8oI66Mo The "Compilation" bumper]] features characters and scenes from a lot of Nickelodeon's even older bumpers. While many consider this an awesome bumper (especially when WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic plays along with it), there's so much weird noises and crap flying at you that a few children were profoundly creeped out by it.

* [[https://youtu.be/4Pd5dJSfQa8 This]] bumper called "A Show of Hands." Namely, the beginning where [[TheWormThatWalks a group of disembodied white hands form together to create]] a NightmareFace comprised of a giant pair of eyes and a mouth, [[NothingIsScarier against a empty black background]]. Not helping matters is the high-pitched sounding voice that introduces the bumper (and yes, the mouth ''[[UncannyValley does move in conjunction with the words]]''). The rest of the bumper is actually not too bad, as it shows a comedic routine of a few hands trying to tie a present, but to say the introduction ''does not'' make a nice first impression is putting it mildly.

* The one most commonly cited seems to be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdhQKrRw9kA the "Pinchface" bumper]], which features a NightmareFace puppet made by floating dentures with eyes and glasses, which screams "NICKELOOHHH-DEE-AAAAHHHH!!" over an insanely loud Balkan brass/klezmer rendition of the Nickelodeon theme. Not to mention, [[SensoryAbuse there's all sorts of flashes all over the place.]] Who knew a 10-second {{Ad Bumper|s}} could be this frightening?
** Not to mention, the face is voiced by Creator/TomKenny, who aside from being the voice of WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants, is also who the [[MediumShiftGag live-action]] [[NightmareFace face]] on the [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce Hot Sauce Drop]] in the episode "Karate Choppers" belongs to.

* Perhaps even worse than any of the above is "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bjk33bE3R4 Nick is Kids]]". Nothing but a HeartbeatSoundtrack, unnerving sound effects, voiceovers with very long pauses, and dark images of Nick series and stars.

It has been described as what would happen if Creator/DavidLynch made a Nickelodeon bumper.
