* Don't let the LargeHam act fool you, Aku himself suits this.

** In the second episode, there are silhouettes of crucified, intellectual ''dogs'', and it's implied that they are dead; 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...
*** In a manner of speaking. Its implied that the original Abomination was only capable of mindless destruction, while Aku is sentient.

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.

Added DiffLines:

* In "The Princess and the Bounty Hunters", a group of bounty hunters team up to capture Jack once and for all by attempting to attack him all at once. Unfortunately, it backfires and Jack defeats them all, with the princess being the only living member of the group. You catch that last line? Jack actually ''killed living beings, flesh and blood'', as opposed to robots and demons. Pretty grim when you think about it.

If you watch the whole series without at least one squeak of terror, then you have more gumption than Jack himself. Some episodes were entirely built around NightmareFuel, like the episodes featuring the trip through a zombie graveyard, the Minions of Set from ''Jack In Egypt'', and the haunted house. Even the episodes not revolving solely around NightmareFuel have scenes that are simply traumatic, the frequent robot carnage that the censors let pass in every episode occasionally goes ''way'' beyond the borders of "not too bad;" once you reach dismembered robots impaled on spikes, things have gotten bad.

* In an episode called "Samurai vs Ninja" it gets downright hectic and overall a bit eerie since you have two of the most deadliest warriors hunting one another in the art of Shinobi. All the while that they're both cladded for the appropriate elements. One fights in the dark while the other fights in pure blinding light. The whole fight in the very wooden tower is both a respectful mix of NightmareFuel and ParanoiaFuel. And to add even more fuel to an already deadly, adrenaline rushing encounter? The soundtrack throughout the whole fight! ... Horror cords and all. [[ShmuckBait Here]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmkxsQnNujI is the fight in its entirety]].
