* [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samurai_Jack_(season_5)#/media/File%3ASamurai_Jack_season_5.png This]] poster for Season 5. There's something incredibly unnerving about it. From Jack's menecing KubrickStare, his unrecognizable appearance, all topped off with him being ''covered in blood.'' Being the first thing we really saw out of Season 5, it truly cemented that ''Samurai Jack'' [[DarkerAndEdgier ain't for kids anymore.]]

* Aku's world is this in general. It's a severely polluted wasteland that is almost completely drained of food and water and infested with dictators (such as the Chritchellites and the Dominator), gangsters, soul-eating demons (such as Demongo and the Demonic Spirit from "Jack and the Haunted House"), {{bounty hunter}}s, and interplanetary bandits, all of whom are given complete free will under Aku's rule. Atrocites are a daily occurrence, as all the previously mentioned thugs often massacre and pillage populated villages and cities for their own personal gain. Aku is also more than willing to have his henchmen turn innocent civilians into slaves against their will, deprive them of food and water, and force them to make status in his likeness. To call it a CrapSackWorld would be an understatement.

** The fact that all of the nightmare sequences are [[ArtShift animated in "sketchy" black and white]], where every line is visibly [[LineBoil chattering]], as if the sheer force of whatever this thing is blew out all of the color until everything looks like a photograph with the exposure turned all the way up. Combined with the distorted sound, it can only be described as feeling ''wrong''.

* Basically the entire episode is full to the brim with NightmareFuel. It's possibly one of the scariest moments ever put in a ''Creator/Cartoon Network'' show.

** Heck, [[CosmicHorrorStory the origin of Aku]] is '''pure''' NightmareFuel. For more information, go to the entry of the episode "The Birth of Evil".

** Unlike most villains who appear on the show who all either work for Aku or are involved with him some way, this Demonic Spirit ''has nothing to do with Aku''. [[TheSpook We know nothing of what it is]], except that it [[YourSoulIsMine wants to steal human souls]].

** For nearly the entire episode, Ashi demonstrates the corrupted version of a LargeHam; just about everything that comes out of Ashi's mouth is IllKillYou, and '''''she won't shut up'''''. Heck, every single thing she says and does is basically a death threat, be it thinly-veiled or over-the-top, and a never-ending tirade. Her hate for Jack makes her so stupidly blind that she's nothing but an obstacle to their survival (when monsters attack them, she ''still'' has her sights set on Jack first), and when she hasn't the means to hurt Jack, she just hurls insult after insult at him in a way that would make [[FloweryInsult the Scotsman]] ''blush''. It becomes ridiculously intolerable once Ashi fails to take the hint that nothing she's saying is demoralizing Jack in the slightest, so she starts telling Jack to die passively, and claiming that Jack is (as good as) dead when they've both been swallowed just to spite him in her misery. BrokenRecord has never been so accurate. If words could kill, she would have wiped out a galaxy. It's so bad, Jack actually ''snaps'' at her -- and this is the man who took all of the Scotsman's ''and'' [[JiveTurkey Da Samurai's]] badmouthing without batting an eye.
