** Aku has [[http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=505lp0&s=9 THIS]] facial expression just before turning the little goats into monsters. Why his iris are swirls is anybodies' guess, but it looks ''incredibly'' unsettling.

** We can see the last remnants of Ashi almost drowning in Aku's overwhelming darkness. The imagery is very reminiscent of what had happened to Jack himself in ''The Aku Infection'', except somehow '''even worse'''.

*** [[spoiler:They actually took the effort to get her out of the temple, which doubles as a tomb, only to leave her unburied. It would have arguably been better to just leave her in the temple, but instead, they dragged her corpse out. And given their comment, it's very likely that they '''intentionally''' left her body out in the open to be picked apart by scavengers instead of giving her a proper burial as a punishment for her death/failure.]]

** Not to mention the empty ThousandYardStare they give straight into the camera while saying "Yes, one can hope" in a single voice. It's like they're staring straight into the viewer's soul.

* 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. He's easily one of the darkest Cartoon Network villains, if you can get past his hammy moments.
** Aku is especially scary in the three-part series premier. His hissy CreepyMonotone, his lack of humor and absolute sadism and cruelty...

Given that the series takes place in a [[CrapsackWorld bleak, dark, gloomy dystopia]] ruled by a malignant demon, Samurai Jack was perhaps one of the darkest shows of its era in Creator/CartoonNetwork. If you can watch the whole series without a little tension or terror, then you are just as brave as Jack himself. Some episodes were entirely built around NightmareFuel; even the episodes not revolving around horror have scenes that are traumatic, especially if you saw the series as a kid.

** Heck, [[CosmicHorrorStory the origin of Aku]] is '''pure''' NightmareFuel. For more information, go to the entry of the episode "The Birth of Evil". This two-part episode is relentless at showing how vile, horrific and dark Aku truly is.

* Jack himself can be pretty scary sometimes. This is best shown in episodes such as "The Princess and The Bounty Hunters", which portrays Jack as a mute ImplacableMan who ([[ShrugOfGod maybe]]) ''kills'' live, non-robotic enemies without a hint of guilt.
** Any time Jack gets [[UnstoppableRage angry]]. In fact, this is main reason why [[EnemyWithin Mad Jack]] [[spoiler:(his Inner-Self)]] exists.

* The Dominator (from "XCVI") is easily the most evil and sadistic villain in the series next to Aku. A sadistic, psychopathic TortureTechnician 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.
