* You gotta feel sorry for all the hell [[BreakTheCutie Abbot Durral]] went through in ''Pearls of Lutra''. Getting captured by lizards, getting repeatedly threatened by Lask Frildur, and not a single beast was there to reassure him that everything ''might'' be okay (except Romsca). When shit finally hits the fan and Romsca and Lask's crews get into a huge fight, Abbot Durral is sitting in Romsca's cabin, alone and utterly defenseless. He blocks the door with a bunch of junk and simply sits in the corner of the cabin for an entire day hoping all the noise will go away. The next morning, something happens that would make any regular abbot shit himself: [[spoiler:''someone starts banging on the door and hacking away at it.'' Once the door has a huge hole in it, the beast on the other side shoves his head through it. Surprise! It's Lask Frildur!]] [[NothingIsScarier Cue chapter's ending]].

* Also from Doomwyte, Baliss the Slayer. Starts off as a highly effective silent killer. After getting a face full of hedgehog spikes, and said wounds become infected, the snake goes completely insane. For comparison, take Asmodeus, make him bigger, smarter, and generally more dangerous. Now make him batshit insane and blind. Not pretty.

** In the AnimatedAdaptation, which usually uses a GoryDiscretionShot during violent or otherwise scary moments, we get a ''good'' view of Slagar's scars.

* Speaking of snakes, there is a sibling trio of snakes in ''Triss''. As if this weren't bad enough, they are literally chained together by their tails (which are rotting from lack of circulation beneath the chain) and attack as one unit. The only way to tell they're coming is by the horrible stench that precedes them everywhere. To make matters even worse, they inhabit Brockhall, which you may remember as the place where Martin the Warrior's army stayed before Redwall was built. Brockhall is little more than an abandoned house of horrors now, and to add icing to the terror cake, the mummified remains of the three snakes' mother is in there also, forever locked with the corpse of the vermin king that killed her. Oh, and these three snakes also manage to [[spoiler: kill Shogg, Triss's best friend]].

* The very first death of the series occurs four very short chapters into the first book; Skullface the rat is run over by a cart, which would be gruesome enough were he human. Imagine what a full-sized horse and cart does to a rat-sized creature, and he lives long enough to hear Cluny yell back at him.

* Blodd Apis in ''Doomwyte''. She was a hermit hedgehog who lived in harmony with the [[EverythingsWorseWithBees thousands of bees]] near her den. When a few Redwallers find her while looking for the final [[MineralMacguffin Doomwyte Eye]], she [[SlippingAMickey gets them drunk enough to pass out]], and tries to murder all of them with her bees. Only Foremole's slight sobriety saved them, and then Apis spilled her [[BuffySpeak bees-kill-this]] juice, which she was about to apply to the Redwallers, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard on herself]]. [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath Cue the screaming.]]

** Maybe so, but she did MindRape "own her mother" into insanity, and it's heavily implied [[spoiler: she would have tossed Mokkan into the lake with no second thoughts, if he didn't do it to her first]]

** Even more scary: according to the text, Lonna [[spoiler:hunted down EVERY SINGLE VERMIN of Raga Bol's crew who managed to escape and killed them as part of his RoaringRampageOfRevenge. This implies that no matter how well those vermin hid or how far they got, Lonna tracked them and most likely killed them in a horrific manner.]]

* Badgers are nightmarish for the vermin in general, [[MookHorrorShow especially when they're consumed with the Bloodwrath]]. Just knowing that [[GentleGiant a kind and gentle beast]] can easily turn into [[AxCrazy a psychotic, bloodthirsty maniac who slaughters anything]] ''and everything'' in his or her way just because their BerserkButton was pushed is very unsettling. There's nothing you can do except run, get on your knees and beg for your life before the badger kills you, or try to fight the badger, [[CurbStompBattle and die ten seconds later]]. Even kindbeasts who pose no threat to a badger are usually warned no to be anywhere near them when they're consumed with Bloodwrath. And at that point, [[FridgeHorror you have to wonder if a badger has accidentally killed an innocent(s) simply for being around them when the Bloodwrath strikes...]]
