* Yuri Kosygin who is a [[BewareTheQuietOnes quiet, subtle and troubling man]]. Even though he doesn't look it, he is a very [[ProfessionalKiller deadly cunning infamous hitman]]. Nikolai Stanislofsky found that out the hard way [[spoiler: He nearly was his 50th victim in the library by being stabbed by his makeshift reading glasses.]]. Yuri was later PutOnTheBus for the rest of the series but seeing him just one time will leave quite a mental scar on both the viewer and the inmates of Oz.

* The entire SeasonFinale episode of the first season "A Game of Checkers" is this. It really gets intense and unnerving as the episode goes on from beginning to end as the violence and tensions between the CO's and rival gangs/inmates explode out of proportions. It really hits the nightmarish spots when one takes into account that there were [[PrisonRiot real riots]] in the past that were just as bad and brutal as it was [[TruthInTelevision portrayed here in this show]].

* Tobias Beecher's '''entire''' stroryline. Sure, all the inmates suffer, but he is [[TheWoobie the character people would sympathize with most]], because he is vulnerable, tries his best to stay sane, and [[ButtMonkey goes through so much]]. All through season 1, you watch a respectable man (a lawyer, how ironic is that) being sent to jail, getting raped and humiliated in many ways by a nazi who threatens his family, and who wants then to have him dead. Beecher's breakdown is both awesome and terryfying, because of what the jail turned him into. And it worsens in later seasons: his wife kills herself, his children are kidnapped, one of them and his father are killed, [[HopeSpot he loses his chance to leave Oz]], and falls in love with a manipulative serial killer, who commits suicide to get him charged with murder and possibly put on death row. You'll see few to no episode where Beecher doesn't suffer in some way.

* Robson and another Aryan killing Ahmad Lalar, the youngest and weakest of the Muslim 'herd' just to prove a point to Said. They slice him to death by repeatedly making shallow cuts with a knife, while Ahmad's screams are muffled by his gag and he (as well as we, the audience) can only watch this horrifying scene.
* Beecher's long nails that he deliberately does not cut while in the hospital and files to razor sharp points. Which he then uses to kill Metzger by slicing into his body, making huge gashes and leaving the unsavory guard to slide down the wall while he ''claws at his mutilated throat, trying desperately to stop the blood from spurting out and failing miserably before dying in a pool of his own blood''. Horrifying doesn't even begin to describe it. Granted, Metzger had it coming.
* After having arranged the death of Vern Schillinger, the leader of the Aryan Brotherhood, as a twisted display of his love for Beecher, Keller still was rejected, so he [[ThanatosGambit kills himself via purposely falling to his death while screaming Beecher's name in order to make it look like Beecher murdered him]]. Then, as Beecher waits to find out if he'll be charged with Keller's death (with the implication that he might face the death penalty), the second part of Keller's gift arrives, in the form of mailed packages of anthrax, which would kill all the mailroom staff -- all of whom were also members of the Brotherhood.

* In the sixth season a production of ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'' is being put on by a number of prisoners with Schillinger in the lead role and Beecher as Macduff. Keller takes a job backstage managing the props. He tells Schillinger that they will kill Beecher then later tells Beecher that he is being friends with Schillinger to keep Beecher alive. He then kisses Schillinger and tells him that he will switch Schillinger's prop knife with a real one so he can kill Beecher onstage. However, during the final fight scene, Keller switches Beecher's knife with a real one. Beecher stabs Schillinger unintentionally during a fight scene, thinking the knife in his hand is a prop. Keller claims to have no idea how a real knife got onto the set. Schillinger's death is considered an accident.
** Really the entirety of the Macbeth play storyline. Keeping in tradition of Macbeth being a cursed play, all the inmates who take on the title role die.

* What happens to poor Luke Perry (being bricked up behind a wall and then burnt beyond all recognition afterwords when a gas leak explosion ends up freeing him) in particular was very nightmarish.
** Reverend Cloutier, who is sealed inside the cafeteria wall by Timmy Kirk and the bikers, remains there forgotten for what must be at least several days, is caught in an enormous gas explosion, survives, sustaining horrifying burns, then as his throat begins to recover so that he can almost produce more than a raspy gurgle, the bikers pick up his charred body and brick him behind another wall to keep him from naming names. As if detaching him from life support wouldn't have been enough. Father Mukada finds his decaying corpse in the final episode, only to seal it back up, figuring he's better off left where he is.

* Timmy Kirk takes a woman's baby from her, and proceeds to place the crying infant in a ''nearby dumpster filled with rats'' while the mother is forced to watch, horrified beyond belief.
** Reverend Cloutier confirmed it was Kirk's own baby he was dumping. I ''think'' the child survived the experience, but Timmy just got scarier as the series wore on.
*** It was his, as confirmed by Reverend Cloutier. We're never told for sure whether the child survived, but we do know that he was originally sent to prison on charges of manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child, with a sentence of 12 years. Given how intentional his act was, I find it hard to believe it wouldn't be considered at least second degree murder. So it's possible that the manslaughter charge referred to him doing in someone else, but if so, we never found out who.

* Of all the gangs, the Christians are arguably the most psycho and nightmarish of the gangs. Despite their seemingly saintly and non-violent nature, they are the epitome of LightIsNotGood and CorruptChurch. Their members are usually guilty of the worst crimes, mainly sex crimes or crimes against children. Only two Christian imnates don't fall into this category and one of them is an Anti-Villain who dies a horrific death. Arguably the most creepy thing about them is that they have an utter lack of self-preservation, to the point of becoming [[DeathSeeker death-seekers.]]

** While Adam Guenzel was a piece of shit rapist, it doesn't make the rapes he endures at the hands of the Aryans any less disturbing. His anguished protests for them to let him go are what got me shivering.
--> '''Winthrop''': "Sir? May I watch?"
--> '''Schillinger''': "Well if you don't, how are you ever gonna learn?"
* One word: '''Robspoon'''.



* One of the prisoners throwing a "blood-piss-puke-shit-cocktail" at a CO and another one smearing something similar on Peter Schibetta's face when he was in psyche ward.
** looks more like finger-paint to me in Schibetta's case, as I haven't yet seen a bodily fluid that yellow (at least not one that can be produced in those quantities by a healthy human)
