There are some things in ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'' that would not be complete without the examples of NightmareFuel.

* Humorously lampshaded when you melt down the Pyrite Parrot, whose voice slows down, and Guybrush comments that that's a little disturbing.
* Less humorous is the Marquis De Singe, who performs amputations on all his patients, no matter how minor the injury, and when [[spoiler: Morgan [=LeFlay=] breaks his finger, ''it heals'']].
** He also suffers from a horrible FamilyUnfriendlyDeath, as [[spoiler: his turban that is supplying him with his HealingFactor is eaten by moths, causing his wounds to catch up with him. He wearily chases after Guybrush's animated severed hand, which he had been using to fuel his healing, only for the hand to [[HoistByHisOwnPetard push him into his own wind machine]], causing his matter to be broken down and scattered across the seas. His scream cuts off abruptly as the machine spits out his remains like a woodchipper]].
* Another death, this time belonging to [[spoiler: Guybrush himself! While getting run through with a cutlass isn't the most violent death, especially due to the BloodlessCarnage, Guybrush's inability to die due to him being in a LucasArts game, or in this case a Telltale game, has been a small RunningGag throughout the series, so the fact that it actually happened is that much more painful]].
* The giant manatees, especially considering that they shouldn't even be scary at all.
* Chapter 5: [[spoiler: Demon Bride Elaine spraying GhostPirate Guybrush with root beer and zapping him back to the Crossroads. It even shows [[StrippedToTheBone his ghostly form screaming and melting away into a skeleton, which then crumbles away into nothingness]].]]
** [[spoiler: [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown The absolutely brutal beatdown LeChuck gives Guybrush]] near the end. He even goes as far as keelhauling Guybrush! (For those who don't know, keelhauling involves tossing a person overboard and dragging them along the underside of the ship by pulling them back out from the other side with a rope.)]]
** [[spoiler: [[AndIMustScream LeChuck's fate]] in TheStinger. All that's left of him is a bottle of green goo with his skull belt buckle floating in it, and he is screaming in agony.]]
* Chapter 4: D'Oro lost an eye offscreen, and apparently he thinks that eyepatches are out of style, so instead he leaves the gaping hole exposed.
* Chapter 3: Bugeye's trump card of a scary face involves sticking one of his eyeballs out of his mouth.
