* The Dominator (from "XCVI") is '''pure''' of NightmareFuel. Imagine the worst features of Aku's henchmen: a slaver, a torturer, ''and'' a mass murderer. That is exactly what this man is. A repulsive psychopath who slaughtered a defenseless town, kidnapped its children, killed its parents and forced them into a [[BrainwashedAndCrazy violent frenzy]]. Just like the High Priestess, he's an actual ''human'' doing dark things to people, and a nightmarish example to demonstrate how Aku's corrupt regime has allowed people like him to prosper in this BadFuture.

* The Dominator (from "XCVI") is easily the most evil and sadistic villain in the series next to Aku. A nightmarish psychopath who slaughtered a defenseless town, robs its children and forced them into a [[BrainwashedAndCrazy violent frenzy]]. Just like the High Priestess, he's an actual ''human'' doing dark things to people, and a nightmarish example to demonstrate how Aku's corrupt regime has allowed people like him to prosper in this BadFuture.
** Unlike other villains in the series, most of whom were given a backstory or implications of why they are evil, the Dominator doesn't. [[NothingIsScarier He's just... there]].

** The banshee that possesses Jack's sword seems to be something different, like a ghostly witch serving as a direct minion of Aku, and possibly even the one whose magic is being used to reanimate the dead, who is [[WreathedInFlames surrounded in blue flames]] and actively levitating, then transforms into a fanged monster as she charges Jack. Somehow, she's able to force Jack's sword forged to destroy everything evil into moving under her own power. Then, hFer light around Jack's sword recedes when Aku grabs hold of it, indicating she has merged with him, and that she was worse than a zombie- ''she was born directly from Aku's essence itself.'' She also speaks, unlike the rest of the undead warriors. And the one thing she says is ''mortifying:''

[[UnCancelled Season 5]] raises the horror to new levels; now that the show has moved to Creator/AdultSwim, it gets to have a [[DarkerAndEdgier little more freedom]] [[BloodierAndGorier with its violence]], leading to some very dark and disturbing scenes that are guaranteed to leave you sleeping with both eyes open.

* 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 rein 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 statues in his likeness. To call it a CrapsackWorld would be an understatement.

* Don't let his [[LaughablyEvil comedic facade]] fool you, [[SatanicArchetype Aku]] is quite literally the living embodiment of NightmareFuel. He's a fragment of an EldritchAbomination who has demolished thousands of cities and towns, massacred and enslaved millions of people, and turned the Earth and many other planets beyond into a living hell, all ForTheEvulz. He's could easily be considered one of the darkest characters in cartoon history if you can get past his hammy moments.

* Aku's reaction after [[spoiler:Ashi invokes EleventhHourSuperpower to help Jack finally return to the past is rather chilling, [[KarmicDeath even if he deserves it]] (just imagine how you would feel if you realized your were going to die)]]:

* The very start of the episode is really ominous, [[DiabolusExNihilo when a solar eclipse out of nowhere]] that makes [[HellIsThatNoise demonic buzzing noises]] allowed Aku to revive because the darkness prevailed in that one moment and reinvigorated his petrified body back into its original state. If only Jack's father had known this would happen through star charts. Unfortunately, it seemed fate just decided to unleash Aku back on the world then and there.
* Aku's assault on young Jack's home city in the very beginning. 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.
** Aku's mannerisms are much more restrained throughout the three-parter. He's not the LaughablyEvil LargeHam of later seasons; he's just '''evil.''' His first line is nothing more than a hoarse whisper, yet it serves as a positively spine-chilling EstablishingCharacterMoment:
--> ''Once again, I am free to smite the world as I did in days long past.''
