** In the episode "Scott Tenorman Must Die", Cartman [[spoiler:ground up a kid's parents into chili and tricked the kid into eating them]]. And, to top it off, sang "Nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah! I made you [[spoiler: eat your parents]]!"

** The multiple [[spoiler: gay suicides]] at the camp Butters is sent to in "Cartman Sucks" might've been darkly funny when the episode first aired in 2007, but the recent rash of [[RealLife real life]] [[spoiler:gay suicides and homophobic hate crimes]] between 2010 and 2011 really give the episode a darker feel.

** "Mysterion Rises" makes it even worse combining Nightmare Fuel with FridgeHorror, Kenny states that [[spoiler: he is unable to die]]:
--> '''Kenny''': [[spoiler: I can't die. I've experienced death countless times. Sometimes, I see a bright light. Sometimes, I see Heaven or Hell. But eventually, no matter what, I wake up in my bed wearing my same old clothes. The worst part? No one even remembers me dying.

* ''Very'' narrowly averted with "Starvin' Marvin." The episode was originally going to end with Sally Struthers being killed and the Ethiopians feasting on the fat from her belly for Thanksgiving. However, [[ExecutiveMeddling Comedy Central would not allow the episode to end in such a way.]] So it ended with [[spoiler: Struthers being tied up as the Ethiopians feasted on Dr. Mephesto's cloned turkeys]].

* Another early example can be seen in "City on the Edge of Forever", in which the children are trapped on a school bus teetering off the edge of a cliff. One of the students, an actual RedShirt, decided to take his chances outside even after Mrs. Crabtree said there was a big, black, monster outside. He seems alright at first but then the monster attacks, grabbing him and pulling him into a tree. As the students watch on to learn of his fate, WHAM! His eviscerated body hits the window. The children think they're safe until the monster rips the top off the bus and steals Kenny. [[spoiler: Yes, it was AllJustADream from Stan]] but the fact remains. [[http://images.wikia.com/southpark/images/6/6f/Big_Black_Scary_Monster.jpg That monster was something that comes from the bowels of your worst nightmares]].

He's so traumatized that he continues to pretend to be a dog, pitifully whimpering out "woof woof", and all the hospital staff looks horrified.

* Kyle's nightmare in "Cartoon Wars" in which the town is attacked by terrorists, and Ike goes missing. Kyle finds him just as a nuclear warhead goes off, complete with a very graphic depiction of [[spoiler: '''IKE'S BODY MELTING WHILE SCREAMING AN ECHO-Y''' ''' ''"KKY-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-A-A-A-A-A-A-ALLLL!!!!!!"'''

* In "Mystery of the Urinal Deuce", the show explores 9/11 conspiracies. Eventually Stan, Kyle, and and a 9/11 truther are arrested by government agents and dragged before UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush. He gives them a chilling speech on how the public will never know or accept the truth about how the government caused 9/11, before executing the truther. Stan and Kyle are barely able to escape with their lives, becoming fugitives. [[spoiler: Of course, all this is subverted later on, when it's the government just wrote conspiracy theories, and the so-called conspiracy theorist is alive and well, but ''damn'' George Bush was made scary]].

There's something about the bags under his eyes and slightly messed-up state of his hair that goes into UncannyValley territory. He also takes a little too much pleasure [[NoYay getting right up in Cartman's face,]] which even Cartman seems creeped out by throughout that scene.
** Also, [[spoiler: what's in the chili he was going to feed Cartman? Given what's revealed immediately beforehand, it might be the same chili Cartman gave him back then!]]
** Cartman actually seems scared when he sees that his mother's been captured by [[spoiler: Scott.]] For all we know, had he not been interrupted, [[spoiler: Scott might have tried to kill her in front of Cartman to make things perfectly even.]]

* The ''entire episode'' devoted to Music/BritneySpears doing a graphically-animated impression of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_the_Headless_Chicken Mike the Headless Chicken]]. Urgh. (By the way, for more Nightmare Fuel, [[SchmuckBait click that outgoing link]].) Very little humor, lots of gore, and lots of biting, truly unsettling social commentary. For those too afraid to watch the episode, [[spoiler: Britney shoots herself in the face after being tricked into thinking the South Park kids are her sons, but fails to kill herself and is left instead without most of the top of her head. She appears to be unaware of anything that's going on, but is still paraded around on stage as-is to do a concert. Being as in her current state all she's capable of doing is making a horrible gurgling sound she proceeds to get shot down by fans and media, and a frighteningly literal comparison is drawn between human sacrifice and the way society sets up celebrities, then viciously tears them down.]] The entire episode is both nausea fuel and nightmare fuel, but as always, SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped.

* In the episode "City Sushi" Dr. Janus [[spoiler: and his multiple personalities]] were quite scary. Mainly the part parodying ''Film/ParanormalActivity'' where he comes into Butters' bedroom, stares at him for 3 hours, urinates on his face, then beats him and leaves before he wakes up.

Given that it came out immediately after the episode that lampooned Political Correctness, it's possible that Matt and Trey were trying to mentally prepare their audience for this.

* In Ginger Kids, when the ginger kids swarmed and kidnapped all the non ginger kids, it was pretty horrific. That and Cartman came really close to succeeding in his plan to wipe out all non-gingers.

* In "Mystery of the Urinal Deuce", the show explores 9/11 conspiracies. Eventually Stan, Kyle, and and a 9/11 truther are arrested by government agents and dragged before George W. Bush. He gives them a chilling speech on how the public will never know or accept the truth about how the government caused 9/11, before executing the truther. Stan and Kyle are barely able to escape with their lives, becoming fugitives. [[spoiler: Of course, all this is subverted later on, when it's the government just wrote conspiracy theories, and the so-called conspiracy theorist is alive and well, but ''damn'' George Bush was made scary]].
* The climax of ''Stanley's Cup''. When the pee-wee hockey team that Stan is coaching go on to play against the Detroit Red Wings, they are brutally, horrifically, and bloodily beaten up. What makes this scene even more horrible to watch is the fact that Nelson, a kid on their team who came down with cancer, had to see this as the last thing he saw before he died. Doubles as both Nightmare Fuel ''and'' [[TearJerker/SouthPark Tear Jerker]]

* The ''entire episode'' devoted to Britney Spears doing a graphically-animated impression of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_the_Headless_Chicken Mike the Headless Chicken]]. Urgh. (By the way, for more Nightmare Fuel, [[SchmuckBait click that outgoing link]].) Very little humor, lots of gore, and lots of biting, truly unsettling social commentary. For those too afraid to watch the episode, [[spoiler: Britney shoots herself in the face after being tricked into thinking the South Park kids are her sons, but fails to kill herself and is left instead without most of the top of her head. She appears to be unaware of anything that's going on, but is still paraded around on stage as-is to do a concert. Being as in her current state all she's capable of doing is making a horrible gurgling sound she proceeds to get shot down by fans and media, and a frighteningly literal comparison is drawn between human sacrifice and the way society sets up celebrities, then viciously tears them down.]] The entire episode is both nausea fuel and nightmare fuel, but as always, SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped.
* The scenes in "The China Probrem" with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg raping Indiana Jones. Those scenes were supposed to be played for laughs, but are nothing short of disturbing.

* "Safe Space": Butters is tasked with removing any negative comments from the online profiles of Cartman, Steven Seagal, Demi Lovato and several other people who are sensitive about their bodies. The overwhelming negativity he has to endure breaks his mind and causes him to run through the school completely naked before leaping out of a window and badly injuring himself.

One's scary enough, but now there's a '''SECOND CARTMAN''' who also shares most of his beliefs! Worst of all, it's '''''HEIDI''''', who has been corrupted by Cartman into what he views as the perfect girlfriend, [[GoneorriblyRightbut may have unwittingly created a monster...]]]]
