** The leadup to it. After Scar has tried to kill Simba and fallen into a crevasse, Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed approach. Scar addresses his friends, to which Shenzi says, "Friends? I thought he said we were the enemy?" Shenzi and Banzai turn to Ed... who breaks into a creepy giggle like nothing we have heard before... and it is both TERRIFYING and AWESOME.

** The stage version of Scar's death changes it to where Scar is injured by his fall from Pride Rock, and is unable to get up, and asks his "friends" for help. The dialogue occurs, but Ed is perhaps even more terrifying than his animated counterpart, because when asked, he breaks out into extremely deranged, cruel laughter, and then shrieks as he leads his comrades into eating Scar. What's worse is that we barely get a ShadowDiscretionShot; the curtains come down, and we see the silhouettes of the hyenas eating Scar alive while he screams, their heads going up and down as they tear into him. Sweet dreams.



** Scar's order to the hyenas as they emerge from the fog after Simba runs off is chilling in its brutal simplicity. Especially since he ''barely even looks in their direction'' as he gives them the order.

** It's a brief moment, but during the shot where some of the hyenas are running away, we can see a male lion and a lioness shoving and knocking hyenas into the fire. That is right: Simba and Nala knocked several hyenas off a cliff and presumably killing them. BewareTheNiceOnes, indeed. Also shows how serious this film is, since this is the first time that we see a Disney animated hero killing someone aside from the main villain intentionally.

* During the Elephant Graveyard chase, Shenzi comes perilously close to chomping down on Nala, before her cheek is slashed by Simba. It actually draws blood, and Shenzi freezes in pain... before slowly turning to Simba with a completely furious, but subdued growl, Simba having genuinely angered her.
** In the stage version at the end of "Chow Down", the cubs are trying to climb away from the hyenas up the elephant skeleton piece, but the hyenas succeed in dragging down Nala. They lick their chops and cry out "Yum yum yum!" and what not, and we see all three hyenas lunging to bite into Nala before Simba stops them in their tracks with his pitiful roar.

** Right at the start of the battle, while Simba tosses a few hyenas around, one gets the jump on him and goes for his throat. If it weren't for Rafiki showing up at that moment, it's possible that hyena would've torn Simba's throat out.

*** From said animated version, we have what happens when Nala claws Scar to get him away from her. He looks shocked, then sneers and says "Ahh...''Nalaaa''..." Just...the way he says it coupled with the look on his face will probably make you feel ''extremely'' unclean...
** In the Broadway version, imagine what Zazu must have been thinking. He's watching Scar creeping up on Nala, a lioness he's known since she was a cub and generally got along with and cared about, with the tyrant's intentions being very clearly lustful and depraved--[[AdultFear and he's trapped in a cage and can't do anything to help her]]. And given what Scar's like, [[FridgeHorror it would be well within his character to rape her right there, with Zazu being forced to watch as it happens]].

** Special mention goes to Scar screaming '''''"YOU WON'T GET A SNIFF WITHOUT ME!!!"''''' at one of the hyenas, who promptly falls screaming into a pit of what we can assume is boiling lava. Yes, the hyena '''died.'''

*** Following that we see Scar begging for his life as he is surrounded by a gang of looming {{Slasher Smile}}s, followed by a quick ShadowDiscretionShot as they pounce and tear him apart.

* The three hyenas are a source comedic relief for the film, but during the climax, they don't appear much, instead focusing on the rest of the clan, who prove they truly can be a force to be reckoned with, as an entire pack of them dogpiles Simba and attacks him rather brutally after he makes Scar reveal the truth, even when the lionesses join the battle, you can see the hyena army fighting back viciously as well. And the whole time, they don't laugh, but utter primal growls, snarls and howls of ''sheer fury''. Thankfully, the combined strenght of the lionesses helps drive the unnamed hyenas away... just in time for what they have in store for Scar...

** When the stampede starts and the thrill chords start, we get a good long look at Simba's utterly terrified face.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zl8gDjaHWWA A deleted scene]] that is mostly restored in the play as "The Madness of King Scar" is downright creepy. The play version is simply discomforting. The film version is downright disturbing. Scar starts hitting on Nala, wanting to her to be his queen, but she refuses. In front of the entire pride, he banishes her. In and of itself the scene is mildly unsettling. The way Scar says his lines, though, is outright disturbing.
