* The [[FantasticVoyagePlot Fantastic Voyage episode]] where Angelica had Chuckie convinced that, because he swallowed a seed, his stomach would be ripped open from the inside by a rapidly growing watermelon. The others had to go in there to get the watermelon seed out before it took root, but they were too late and it started going out of control. The environment inside was dark and claustrophobic and kinda gross. Tommy, Phil and Lil hardly got out in time, and only then was it revealed that it was AllJustADream.
** Don't forget that Angelica also almost [[NauseaFuel drowned in mucus]]. Delicious.
** Phil also nearly drowned when he fell into the bloodstream and had to be saved. What kid would want to go swimming after watching that?

* [[http://i.imgur.com/nHNmY.png This]] was done by official artist of the show. Even though it's a [[PlayedForLaughs joke on their part]] it might be a bit much for some. [[spoiler: the last [[SchmuckBait two panels]] might leave an insatiable urge into grabbing some BrainBleach.]]

* From the PS1 game Rugrats: Search for Reptar. There was a level called "Let There Be Light" in which there's a powercut, and you need to control Tommy to find the light (i.e., the fridge). Little Tommy is only armed with a flashlight and there's freaking ''ghosts'' around the entire house. Strangely, he isn't afraid of the ghosts.

* In ''"Chuckie vs. The Potty"'', Chuckie has a nightmare where his potty-training is like death row, complete with screams of ''"Not the chair! NOT THE CHAIR!"'' Just to make it even creepier, the sequence features ''all'' of the babies--Phil and Lil appear as the prison guards that march Chuckie to the chair, and Tommy is an [[DissonantSerenity eerily calm]] monk who tries to console him. The bit ends with Angelica as the executioner, who pulls off her mask to reveal one of the creepiest SlasherSmile / EvilLaugh combinations EVER, and flushes Chuckie down a giant toilet.

-->'''Angelica''': "And they ''never'' saw little Barnaby Jones again....So remember there's only one place you can hide: Under the covers. And sometimes, the monsters can ''even find you there.'' * flicks Chuckie's teeth and runs around singing* "Chuckie's gonna get eaten, eaten, eaten! Chuckie's gonna get eaten by the monster under his bed!"
* Chuckie's germ nightmare in the episode "Mr. Clean". The faces that the germs wield do ''not'' help.
** Chaz's psychotic dependency on puppets in that same episode.

* Is it me, or is Angelica's temporary FaceHeelTurn in "Angelica for a Day" creepy? The smile on her face seems so forced and unnatural.

* On the episode "Dust Bunnies", Chuckie becomes scared of dust bunnies. So scared that he has a nightmare where a giant, evil, slobbering rabbit drags him into the basement with its slimy ears, while he screams the whole time.
** Apparently it was aired as part of a 3D promotion block called 'Nogglevision', using 'Chroma-Depth' technology. The 3D is still in the episode, as Chroma-Depth requires specific colours, but all the '3D on/off' cues are removed. Still, imagine watching this episode when it aired as part of the 3D line-up, in 3D.
* In "What The Big People Do", Tommy and Chuckie have a dream about being grown up and going to work. All is well and good, until they are called into The Boss's office. They have to first walk down a hallway with giant pictures of past bosses and are thrown into the the boss's room by the carpet in the hallway. The doors slam shut, creepy organ music plays, and the entire room is enshrouded in shadows save for the boss' chair. The Boss is the adult version of Angelica, who threatens to have them "[[LargeHam FIREEEED!]]", and then flames shoot at Tommy and Chuckie from these two statues she has in her office. They flee while the the past bosses climb out of their portraits to stop them. Angelica calls in the Creepiest Robot Minions Ever, and all the time insanely creepy music is playing while the angry-faced robots close in on them. Had to be one of the creepiest things in Rugrats ever.

* Angelica explaining to Tommy that ''parents swap each others children'' at family reunions, ending with "And you'll never see your mom or your dad or your dumb old dog ever again!" Two EatTheCamera takes with Angelica reiterating that line make this even more uncomfortable, with the second reminding ''her'' of her own possible fate.
* In the aptly named episode "The Shot," Chuckie describes getting a shot to Tommy (who was going to get one that day), with images of a friendly-looking doctor morphing into a Mr. Hyde-like monster and thrusting a hypodermic harpoon at Chuckie.
** The doctor introduces himself by saying "Don't you remember me? ''I'm your friend, [[TheSilenceOfTheLambs Dr. Lector!]]''" Can't fault Chuckie for being scared. No sir-ee.

* In "The First Cut" Tommy gets cut on a rose bush. He later dreams that when he gets cut, endless amounts of stuffing starts pouring out of the wound, as if he's a stuffed doll (This was inspired by a damaged teddy bear earlier in the episode).

* Weaning Tommy- Tommy more or less goes into [[GRatedDrug withdrawal after a couple of days without his bottle]]. He has a fever dream that cannot be described as anything less than horrifying. At one point, a giant sippy-cup with a SlasherSmile chases him around, shouting "DRINK ME!!!"

* One early episode had an actual working ''time machine'' and a life-size toy robot got inside after hijinks ensued. It was transported back to the Revolutionary War in the middle of an ongoing battle with no way to return. Tommy and Chuckie, an ''infant and toddler'', could've ended up lost in the past forever in the middle of a '''''bloody battle!''''' Just imagine the trauma ''that'' would wreak on their innocent minds...

** The only reason the adults never realized he was gone was because they ''never got to read the ransom note.'' And that's not even the worst part. The Pickles were ''not'' the Crooks' actual target (due to confusion over the sixes and nines in the street address). If the adults ''did'' read the note, it would've brought ''several'' unthinkable cases of FridgeHorror.

* The original pilot. The [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness animation is much more detailed and makes the characters look ugly or downright monstrous]], especially the necks, and the whole episode has a cold, alien, feel compared to later episodes. The girlish voice of Tommy and the fact it is mostly at night do not help. The worst part are ''the two characters who don't appear in the series proper''.
