*** Also, the girl is voiced by Melissa Fahn, who'd later go on to voice the psychotic [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim Gaz Membrane.]]



* The episode "Jerry The Belly Button Elf" in which Stimpy [[BodyHorror crawls inside his own belly button]] and is trapped there for eternity!
** [[SchmuckBait Don't you]] '''''[[SchmuckBait DARE]]''''' [[SchmuckBait try and feed Jerry]] [[BerserkButton lint loaf]]...

eternity! Well, he's not, but STILL.
** For someone voiced by freakin' ''Gilbert Gottfried'', Jerry manages to be ''terrifying'' in the second half.

* "Ren's Retirement". Basically it goes like this. Ren turns ten years old, [[spoiler: seventy in dog years.]] He's convinced he's gonna die. He manages to get a high-end coffin and is buried, ''alive'', with Stimpy. A large worm comes over to visit... and promptly eats all the meat from their bodies, leaving nothing but torn-up skin hanging on their skeletons. AND THEY ARE STILL ALIVE.

** Earlier in the episode, in a manner similar to the infamous "Keef's Eyes" scene of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZIM'', we are treated to a scene of Stimpy removing Ren's brain, [[ShadowDiscretionShot entirely in silhouette]]. Who knew shadows could be so graphic?!

* "Hermit Ren". Oh sweet, merciful Buddha, "Hermit Ren". Even ignoring the squicktacular visuals (for example the delightful image of the flesh melting off of Ren's hands, leaving only bone, ''done entirely in first person''), the incredibly detailed portrayal of Ren [[SanitySlippage becoming slowly insane]] due to his ''self-inflicted'' isolation, to the point where he begins having conversations with a ''mummified corpse.''

** For Ren himself? Stimpy's [[HollywoodToneDeaf Hollywood Tone Deafness]][[note]]Though actually, anytime Stimpy acts stupid...which is almost always...would count, but this part especially.[[/note]]:

** However, a good dose of NightmareRetardant is provided when Ren tries to milk a bat, thinking it's a cow udder.



*** The entirety of the nightmare sequence also counts.

*** The entirety of the nightmare sequence also counts. Though some found it hilarious, others could find it creepy, but anyway: Stimpy dreams Muddy the Mudskipper (his favorite TV character) '''eats''' him, and wakes up in a CatapultNightmare fashion yelling "Muddy!"



* The unmade episode "Life Sucks" probably would have been this for the bulk of its length for it' dark message and scathing honesty, but the storybook sequence ''especially'' stands out; it's a scene where Ren tells Stimpy a bleak tale of a colony of Christian crusaders (made entirely of children, drawn in an art style that homages the work of artist Mary Blair) many of whom die horribly in a winter storm during their long journey, and when they reach the promised land, they end up attacked en masse by the lands inhabitants and are graphically killed via stabbing or decapitation ''on-screen''--and the children that ''did'' survive ended up growing up and inducted into harems and slavery for the rest of their lives! Outside of Ren's infamous outbursts, this easily would have counted as one of the darkest (and chillingly nihilistic) moments, in what probably would have been the darkest episode in the entire series. And most frightening is that it wasn't made up for the episode--it was based on something that (in some form or another) ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childrens_Crusade actually happened.]]''

* The [=DVD=] menus are overcut with the sounds of Ren screaming in pain. [[note]] The audio came from the "House of Next Tuesday" episode



** "I...I was ''nice'' today..."

Added DiffLines:

* ''An Abe Divided'': After Ren and Stimpy saw off and destroy the head of the Lincoln Memorial, Ren's horrified reaction at what they've just done flips an otherwise funny episode into a ReailtyEnsues type nightmare. After several failed attempts, Ren gives up and begs the spirit of Abe for forgiveness. Then Lincoln's ghost just ''shows the hell out of nowhere'' with his head in his arm and kicks the two of them.

* "Insomniac Ren" has Stimpy reading a bed time story as an attempt to get Ren to fall asleep. The story started with "The sky grew '''black as blood!'''" and ended with a blood-curdling scream from Stimpy. This naturally scared the wits out of Ren. The fact that the book had "[[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe Poe]]" on the cover says something.

*** Even worse is Ren's reply - in true JerkAss fashion, he attributes her boyfriend being mean to her to her being stupid, reassuring her that she might one day be as stupid as Stimpy, at which point everyone will love her.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR6KjNmN2BA The end of "Sven Höek"]] (Spumco) where Ren [[GoMadFromTheRevelation Goes Mad from the Revelation]] upon finding out what a mess Stimpy and Sven made in his house. What made it Nightmare Fuel of the highest degree was when Ren went from genuinely angry and raving to [[TranquilFury eerily]] [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness pleasant]] at the drop of a hat while he described how he would get his revenge by "gouging out their eyes", "tearing off their lips", [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking beating them up]], and wrenching their arms out of their sockets. He imagines committing said acts by demonstrating with his hands, and we hear what each horrible act of violence would sound like. Made worse when Sven and Stimpy are shown to be terrified out of their wits and Ren expresses his happiness at seeing how scared they are by giving them a huge SlasherSmile and continuing on with his PsychoRant. The worst part is that when he says "tear your arms out of the sockets" and we hear the sound, you can see a brief splash of blood as we hear the snapping. The voice-only version has Ren ''really'' dragging out the arm tearing.

** A lesser moment occurs during the "Ren reading Stimpy's fan letters" sequence, overlapping with Fridge Horror, seeing as how it could fly over the heads of younger viewers. One of Stimpy's fan letters was apparently from a girl who was being abused by her boyfriend, and she claims in the letter "my only friends are you and my TV." It's a rather unsettling and downplayed moment that was understandably overshadowed by the insanity of the second half of the episode.

* In "Haunted House", the ghost's last resort to scaring Ren and Stimpy was to approach them wearing a mask and wielding a chainsaw. His eyes, while wearing the mask, look realistic and when he approaches the sleeping duo, they widen and the sclerae gradually turn a bright, bloody red.

* In the episode "My Shiny Friend", Ren becomes suspicious when Stimpy goes to the bathroom three times in a row, the last time being [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "Number 3"]]. When he realizes that Stimpy is still addicted to televison, he yells at Stimpy to stop watching it. As Stimpy ignores his orders, his face becomes gradually distorted until Ren breaks in. Ren then sees Stimpy jittering on the ground, with empty black eyes and glowing green due the cathode rays from watching television excessively, much to his horror. In other words...[[spoiler:Stimpy had just "overdosed" on TV.]]

** Before being hauled away, Ren actually '''[[spoiler: bites off the hand of one of the officers and SWALLOWS IT. And his tongue comes out like a snake's and licks his lips]]'''. That '''wasn't''' even the most horrifying thing about that episode. The most frightening part of the episode was the exploration of Ren's twisted childhood. The origin of Ren's anger comes from memories of his birth- being in the "dark... and stinky" womb, and receiving a slap from a nurse, which leaves a bright red mark and leaves the baby stunned. Sound funny? It wasn't played for laughs, surprisingly. It was played completely straight. "My first memory was of unspeakable pain... and from that moment on, I wanted to inflict the pain on others." We see Ren age from a baby to an adolescent, and we see that he grew up torturing little animals. The audience is treated to several long scenes such as baby Ren gleefully plucking the legs off of a screaming caterpillar, burning ants with firecrackers, and a young child Ren torturing a frog in multiple, horrific ways.
** Ren's voice is even creepier in this cartoon. John K (the original voice actor for Ren) lowered Ren's voice and made him sound very emotional and unhinged, even while speaking calmly. This episode has some of John K's best acting. Not only can you hear the genuine pain in Ren's voice at the beginning while he's talking to Stimpy, but his calm narration of his entire life story is downright horrifying.
