* 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: [[spoiler: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.

* '''Malcolm "Snake" Coyle'''. Though he got into Oz on relatively minor charges, he later revealed he's actually a deranged killer who murdered an entire family, the father by stabbing, the mother by stabbing before raping her corpse, two children, an old grandfather, and a baby by gutting it in its crib, all for fun. Worse off, he never got caught for the murders and threatened anyone who even thought of ratting him out. Hill and the others were visibly disturbed by this and tried to have him killed immediately.

* 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]].

* 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.
