* In the remake depicted above, Souther, the boss of the slum stage, is seen brutally murdering somebody before he is encountered in a boss fight. The body of his victim is never seen, but there is a massive pool of blood on the ground nearby.
** If an enemy is sliced, blown up, or run over in the remake, they will become [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bisected]]. This contrasts beating the tar out of them (where the deaths are just implied in that case) because it shows some of the enemies' internal organs. It can be more disturbing if [[KidHero Skate]] slices through his enemies with his special move. There is the option to turn that off, but still.

* Stage 3 in the second game. Everything's normal until a certain section in Stage 3. Then you walk through an entryway decorated with teeth and eyes and find yourself in some dark, [[Creator/HRGiger Gigeresque]] room with eggs containing evil-looking larval creatures scattered around that explode when struck, and you have to fight some giant demonic head called Vehelits in order to pass. Even granted the level's AmusementParkOfDoom theme, this is straight-up ''weird''. In the remake, if you sprint in this area, you can hear some unsettling squishing sounds as your character runs.

This is an amusement park, quite clearly. Jeez. Pay attention, people.

Taking on TheSyndicate with nothing more than your [[GoodOldFisticuffs bare hands]] along with the occasional lead pipe and 2x4 is all well and good in the ''Streets of Rage'', but sometimes Mr. X and his goons pulls some stunts that are just downright terrifying.
