** His ''very introduction'' applies. As the Gypsies are surronded by soldiers, a huge shadow casts itself over the wall, revealed to be Frollo on his Bruiser of a horse. The pure ''terror'' in the male Gypsy's voice is as if he has come face to face with the devil itself; a textbook OhCrap reaction.

** Most of the other Creator/{{Disney}} villains were terrifying and evil in their own right, but Frollo trumps a majority of them due to being very, very normal and realistic. It gets better. The chances of you personally getting attacked by [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid a sea witch]], [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} a sorcerer]], or [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs an evil queen]] is slim to none. Are there genocidal racists out there who use religion to justify their beliefs and actions, and convince other people to follow them? Oh, yes.

* As [[BaseBreaker controversial]] as the sequel to the movie is, it does have the genuinely frightening [[{{Narcissist}} Sarousch]], whose treatment of Madeleine reeks of [[TheSociopath sociopathy]]. Also chilling is the AdultFear-riddled sequence where Sarousch holds [[WouldHurtAChild Zephyr hostage to ensure his safe escape]]; Zephyr sounds legitimately terrified when his father (who he had previously bragged about and clearly idolizes) does nothing to help him despite Zephyr crying out to both him and Esmeralda and both parents are understandably beside themselves with worry.

** For some it is worse in this version because of how unprovoked that was. At least in the book he was guilty of attempted kidnapping and nobody knew that the true culprit was Frollo.

*** In the italian version, he sings ''I'm waiting for you in Hell'' instead of just ''Choose me or your pyre''. He knows this obsession'll damn him but it's got him too tight. That's a sign that he's '''really''' losing it, in a horrifying way.

** His final scene is the image above for a reason. While watching it, notice the color of his eyes and teeth. They're white like Esmeralda's and Quasi's, until he climbs the gargoyle to decapitate the Gypsy, ''then they turn yellow!''
** When confronting Quasimodo for helping Esmeralda escape Notre Dame, Frollo goes from his [[TranquilFury usually polite and cold tone]] to full out UnstoppableRage as he shouts at Quasimodo and destroys his replica of Paris. Quasimodo is lying on the floor, looking like a frightened child. [[FridgeHorror Makes one wonder if this was the first time Frollo ever shouted at Quasimodo like that]].
* Imagine for a moment you are one of the soldiers under Frollo's command. Specifically, one of those attacking the Cathedral. You've stuck by the Judge through all of his monstrosities. The city is in revolt, the Cathedral is throwing beams, stone and molten lead at you. All of this is explainable. Then the birds attack and everything is put into perspective. The Cathedral isn't attacking you. God is and now the Devil has a claim on your soul. Pious or not, that would be terrifying.

** The scene where Frollo explains his viewpoint of the Romani people to Phoebus. Hello, blatant genocide metaphor in a ''kids' movie!''
-->'''Frollo:''' I have been...''taking care'' of the Gypsies. (''crushes some ants with each word'') One...by...one...

** In the Finnish dub, Frollo's tone of voice when he says "This is an unholy demon. I'm sending it back to Hell where it belongs." is [[ButForMeItWasTuesday as if he's discussing the weather]].

Added DiffLines:

* "Sanctuary (Reprise)" in the stage version. Taken UpToEleven in the American production, in which Frollo corners Esmeralda in her cell and [[AttemptedRape forces himself on her.]] The claustrophobia of the prison cell set as Esmeralda tries to crawl towards the bars and call for help despite knowing the cell is locked and nobody will free her just sells her helplessness and the discomfort of the scene.

** Even worse is the Paper Mills version. In the King's Academy, only one gargoyle says the line. In Paper Mills, it's ''the entire chorus''. The effect is both chilling and awesome.
