** The town of Elmore is plagued by satellite TV interruptions that cause the town itself to glitch. What's worse is that no one notices or cares and when Gumball and Darwin finally do notice and wonder why Elmore is being affected, the scene jumps to the end where Richard happily tells the family that Gumball and Darwin are friends again and that everything is back to normal...and Gumball and Darwin mirthlessly laugh along, unsure of what just transpired.
** Actually, even worse: they're laughing nervously because right as the scene changed they [[BreakingTheFourthWall realized Elmore isn't real and that their lives may be part of a TV show.]]
** It all plays out like something you'd see in the middle of night during AdultSwim and it extremely unsettling.

Simply put, the entire episode plays out like something you'd see in the middle of night during AdultSwim AdultSwim's "Off the Air" segments (home to a lot of unsettling and it extremely unsettling.jarring non sequitur programming).

** The flashback where Gumball is being chased by a pack of dogs (while wearing a ham suit, of course) who look like they want to maul him to death. Imagine having such an experience ''in real life''. Richard counts too, with a pair of slanted ''reptilian eyes'' and fangs and making his entrance by [[UncannyValley unmovingly sliding in from the top right screen corner]] for no given reason and attacking Gumball.

* "The Vacation" is chockfull of this. The elderly, toothless man and his mom turn out to be good, but have a creepy design and behavior nonetheless. Even worse, at the very end of the episode, as the Watterson family happily goes back home, they're completely unaware that the [[RealAfterAll winged monstrosity]] from Gumball's story can be seen abducting the old guy behind them.

** While attempting to get a sentient milk carton acting as a security guard to park the car, Gumball accidentally stabs the carton with a car key. After Gumball removes the key, the guard begins gushing "blood" and slumps over, his eyes half-closed and one arm dangling limply over the side of his booth. The "blood" is milk, but the scene is disturbing nonetheless.

** A lot of Margaret's destructive antics, like feeding coffee-laced nuts to the park squirrels and having them attack everyone, purposely trying to run down Gumball and Darwin with her car, letting her brother drown, burning down Elmore Junior High, watching Darwin choke on a toy from a chocolate egg and smiling evilly as she shuts the door on him, and being overjoyed over the thought of a hospital having a power outage.

** Gumball, Darwin, and Masami stuck in the burning basement (especially since the basement looks like the one from "The Nobody" that only Gumball and Darwin know exists, [[FridgeHorror meaning that even if Nicole and Richard didn't have to take Anais to the hospital for frog flu, they still wouldn't have known where Gumball and Darwin were]]).
