** The snake thing can also be seen trying to eat one of the monsters during "Making Christmas".
*** To be fair, we see that character who's eaten later in the movie. Also, the people who received the Halloween presents were left with them for a while and they were fine. So the presents weren't actually attacking people, they were scaring them. [[FridgeBrilliance Because the citizens of Halloweentown don't hurt people. They just like to scare them.]]

** Some might not find it frightening as Jack is just exploring the world of Christmas Town. True, he would easily stick out like a sore thumb in a place like that, but he doesn't mean any harm.
* Behemoth, the resident of HalloweenTown with the ax lodged in his cranium. He seems like [[GentleGiant a pretty nice guy]], though.

* [[HorrifyingHero Jack Skellington]] himself is the personification of your most visceral nightmares. He's a tall, thin skeleton who looks and moves like a spider, with gigantic empty black pits for eyes and a grin that would make your spine shiver no matter how kind it is. Just to put it in perspective, the character who's supposed to be ''the god-damned boogie man'' is scared to see him! He is The Pumpkin King, because he is the greatest in Halloween Town. Thankfully, he is pretty nice, softening the blow.

* Shock starts to choke Lock after Jack shows them what Santa's holiday door looks like. While the two are fighting, Jack pulls off a terrifying NightmareFace, traumatizing both the trio and audiences for years to come. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ll2vP4L_eA See here.]]

* Some of the pre-production material can seem scarier than anything in the actual film, such as this [[https://youtu.be/gelClLma-B4?t=1m18s animation test]] involving early versions of Jack, Zero, and Santa. If you weren't scared of Santa Claus before, you will be.

*** Imagine being one of the cops having to respond to that Christmas disaster. It's Christmas, you're expecting a quiet night on duty, and suddenly the radio is flooded with calls about a home intruder leaving dangerous "toys" that are attacking ''children''. From the look of the police station, the situation was so bad that the entire department was probably called out to try and solve the problem. Now you have to leave the house, leaving your entire family alone while a vicious criminal is on the loose.

** And this thing is supposed to be hiding under ''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the viewer's]]'' bed. Since he's a HalloweenTown resident, he probably doesn't mean any real harm, but it's still really unsettling that a creature would be lurking down there, waiting to come out and scare you out of your wits.
