** The two-parter explaining his origin adds to his terror. Apparently, he started out as this freaky monster inside the earth that would send large, deep cracks through the ground. The cracks were filled with him as he took the form of a tar-like substance, and he would then ''absorb living creatures'' to get stronger. At one point, a man calls out for his dog, goes to the back of his house, and sees one of the cracks filled with Aku-goop, and ''half the dog's leash sticking out.'' Doubles as a TearJerker when we hear the man's anguished and horrified screams

*** In a manner of speaking. Its implied that the original Abomination was only capable of mindless destruction, while Aku is sentient.

* Jack follows a little girl to an old, decrepit house. He receives several nightmarish visions about what happened to the various family members that used to live there, all of them appearing to have been killed by some faceless horror. Not even Aku, just some creature with a sadistic streak. And that's only the first half. What really seals the deal is the [[HellIsThatNoise cacophonic distortion in the "other realm" Jack ends up in]], which sounds like something you'd get if you blasted really loud music out of your speakers at full volume.
** ''The Haunted House'' seriously needs to be seen to be believed. The creepy visions Jack keeps seeing to some unnamed thing attacking the occupants of the house, the eerie tranquility in the fake tea room, not to mention that, unlike most villains who appear on the show who all either work for Aku or are involved with him some way, the Demonic Spirit ''has nothing to do with Aku''. Its just... there.
* And the Minions of Set episode, its only against three beings. But these are creatures that Jack himself ''cannot'' stop. Any cut he makes the limbs grow back instantly and the minions continue the chase. Jack is forced to run and go on the defensive for rest of the episode as he tries to locate artifact pieces that will help defeat the minions. Nearly getting killed in the process. To say it's tense is an understatement.
** Jack had to rely on the power of a ''god'' to destroy them. The god himself, Ra[[note]]The very same Ra that, along with Odin and Vishnu, destroyed the evil entity that would spawn Aku[[/note]], was pretty creepy as well in the fact that he did so with very little effort, the fact that he towers over Jack, and that he does nothing but stare at Jack, not even speaking when Jack asks him if he knows a way to return to his own time.
--->'''Jack:''' These creatures are more powerful than anything I have ever encountered...
* Episode 15, "Jack's Tales", has Jack encounter a family of metal-eating robots. The robots, in a fit of hunger, rip each other to shreds, and the insides of the robots look just graphically enough like human flesh to creep you out.
** The family was unaware they themselves were MechanicalLifeforms, only feasting on "the mother" when her face was revealed to be robotic. [[FridgeHorror Who's to say they weren't originally people who underwent some sort of memory-erasing]] UnwillingRoboticization? What if their story about being "survivors" of a raid was true, and they woke up after being experimented on, perfectly ordinary but having a violent taste for metal? As there's no backstory regarding them, NothingIsScarier is in full effect.

*** During the final battle between his father and Aku, Aku slips into the armor of fallen soldiers and makes clones of himself to surround him. They all promptly laugh at him and then just...stop. It's surprisingly unnerving.

** Even one of the most hilarious episodes where he's involved merely paints him horrific in a different light. He rounds up kids from within a capital city, with no reason given to them or their parents. The room they're led to is large, red and spiky as always, but has monitors of adorable, yet...off animals, which eventually switch off. The camera focuses on a large red throne in the room. And Aku just appears. No fanfare, no flashy effects, no booming monologue. [[NothingIsScarier He's just there.]] This is how he ''reads propaganda stories to children.''

** In the second episode, there are silhouettes of crucified, intellectual ''dogs'', and it's implied that they are dead; [[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1466015232507.jpg Jack's reaction upon seeing it is entirely justified]]. Aku has been doing this since Jack's original time period to multiple races throughout multiple galaxies. For ''thousands of years''. That's horrifying. It makes you wonder if the universe was better off with the original abomination...

Especially in his first appearance assault on Jack's home city in the pilot.first episode. He shows up looking bored, the garrison attacks him, and finally he smiles entertained as he ''wipes them out with the very arrows they shot at him'', and ''then'' he starts attacking half-seriously.



** When Aku crashed to prehistoric Earth, he took the form of a meteor that burned nearly all of the dinosaurs down to charred skeletons, then proceeded to gobble up the few remaining survivors. The carnage is ''abominable''.
** When Jack's father goes to stop Aku, charging into the forest of black, spiky trees with an army of samurai in tow. As they get closer and closer more trees burst up from the ground, and we [[GoryDiscretionShot hear samurai start screaming as their horses (now riderless) run by Jack's father]]. And then, after Jack's dad wakes Aku, Aku ties him up, slips into the ground, then pops back up by his kingdom and attacks it. Coupled with the guy's horrified face and the BigNo that follows, imagine how the people in the city felt.
** During the final battle between his father and Aku, Aku slips into the armor of fallen soldiers and makes clones of himself to surround him. They all promptly laugh at him and then just...stop. It's surprisingly unnerving.
** Worse than Aku is his BadFuture world he teleports Jack to. No one knows Jack and most of the people either worship Aku or are slaves. It makes one shudder to even think of living in a BadFuture controlled by a RealityWarper master of darkness.
