* ''Samurai vs Samurai'' is mostly a goofy episode involving Jack dealing with the [[SmallNameBigEgo Da Samurai]], until the last few minutes. Suddenly, an ''army'' of Aku's assassinbots from earlier in the episode show up, but these ones {{Dual Wielding}} swords and opening the panels in their heads to reveal [[UncannyValley creepy long faces with razor-sharp teeth]]. That alone is scary enough, but after Jack finally defeats the entire army, they all combine into what can only be described as the mechanical equivalent of an {{Eldritch Abomination}}. Thankfully, it goes down easier than the army did, but it's still freaky to watch.

* "Jack And The Zombies". Some of those zombies were just plain freaky, like the long-armed zombie and the one that possesses Jack's sword. And when he falls into the crypt... that wail.
** The [[OhCrap look on Jack's face]] when Aku starts to use ''his own sword'' against him. Sure, Jack is still able to fight back, but a good chunk of that fight is Jack trying to run away or dodge Aku's attacks. Unfortunately, [[YouWillNotEvadeMe Aku doesn't let Jack escape that easily]]...
--> '''Aku''': Oh, Samurai? Where are you, Samurai? You can run, but you cannot hide, 'cause '''I can smell your blood'''!
** The way Aku's voice changes for those last five words just really pushes his creepy-meter to the red.
** Speaking of the graveyard episode there is a little bit of FridgeHorror that makes Jack's 'battle', and by battle I mean simply trying to survive, against Aku even more frightening. The form that Aku takes to finally overwhelm Jack is a huge black mass similar to the abomination he was a part of. Just a horrifying reminder that even though he's gained sentience and likes to toy with people using different forms, he can become a simple unnatural force if needs be.
*** His close up as he's about to stab Jack, his eyes look creepier than normal.

* And the Minions of Set episode, it's 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 the 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...

* The creatures that Jack fights in "Chicken Jack" ranged from downright creepy to outrageously grotesque. And this was a lighter episode!

** 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.* The episode "Jack and the Ultra-robots" is worth mentioning, especially the [[DesolationShot second city]]. [[SceneryGorn Mutilated robots with horrific faces strewn about, some of them on pikes,]] [[SymbolicBlood and oil EVERYWHERE]].

* Demongo, ''dear God.'' Not only is he an EldritchAbomination, he steals the souls and keeps the skulls of all the warriors he's slain. Skulls that he ''wears on his chest.'' Skulls that he can toss out to summon the ghosts of the fallen warriors to do his bidding, all of which have creepy blue mind-control eyes.

* "Jack And The Lava Monster". As Jack comes closer and closer to reaching the end of an increasingly lethal series of traps placed by a cursed warrior, you see ''dozens'' of skeletons strewn about his labyrinth of death, killed in brutally horrific fashion when they each made a lethal mistake on the way in.
** Worse still, after [[spoiler: Jack breaks the curse on the warrior, he returns to human form- but the entire time he was locked away in that demonic prison, he was separated and left untouched from the natural flow of time. With the curse no longer keeping him filled with vitality, the effects of millenia wearing down on his physical body are finally unmasked- he reverts into a frail old man in an instant and dies. Fortunately, [[TearJerker he's carried off to the afterlife paradise of Valhalla to live in eternal bliss.]]]]
** Even earlier, Jack is traveling through the scorched countryside that was once [[spoiler: the Lava Monster's home, implied to be in Norway.]] It's bleak, cold, and littered with ash and corpses. On top of that, there's an ominous voice constantly beckoning Jack to follow it.
---> "Come... ''Come...!''"

* 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 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.
