* Boss Smiley from the Prez Rickard story in ''Worlds' End''. The first few times we see him, he's a guy in a suit with a round face shaped like a smiley badge. When we see him on his own turf, his head actually ''is'' an enormous sphere with a widely distorted, perpetually smiling mouth. It's a toss-up which is creepier.

** Some of the other serial killers are also notable. Fun Land, the serial killer who lurks in amusement parks so he can target children, and who shows up to the convention wearing a [[BlandNameProduct Not-Mickey Mouse hat.]][[note]]And guess who shows up as a cameo in "The Widening Gyre" Batman miniseries? He was out there, all that time, still killing.[[/note]] ** The Doctor has a little hobby: making his own leather neckties.

** The speech he gives before a hotel meeting room full of serial killers, stating that what they do is the real meaning of the [[AmericanDream American dream, because they 'kill to kill' rather than for a legitimate reason.]] He seems so God-damn proud.

** An investigative reporter tries to infiltrate the convention. When his cover is blown, four of the killers take him for a ride. The Corinthian describes the various mutilations and cannibalistic quirks of his fellow murderers and then tells the reporter, "Now we're
going to take turns."

* ''Season of Mists''. The entire thing with the [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors Boarding School Of The Damned]]. Childhood abandonment issues and problems with school settings, back to play. All standard fair until the dead start coming back to life, speifically the three older students from World War One, discussing how life isn't fair - and how they did the whole Satanic-rite thing, killed another student and drank the blood and everything, and when they died, ''Hell didn't care.'' [[spoiler:That and the last panel with them in it in that story, with just the legs.]]

** The worst part of ''Brief Lives'' is the flash back to the plague. A man's entire family is dead around him from the black death, he's trapped inside his house because the neighbors nailed the door shut while they where still in it. He's passed out drunk (what else to do it that situation), and everyone thinks he's dead.

** Again, ''Brief Lives''. Delirium, after being pulled over by a cop for driving... well, deliriously, decides to punish him, saying: "I think you'll have invisible insects all over you now for all your life and for ever and always." Which then happens. We later see the same man in an insane asylum, clenching his eyes and mouth closed for fear of invisible bugs walking over his eyeballs or slithering into his mouth. Of course his [[{{Squick}} nostrils]] are still fair game. The worst part? Delirium states outright that Dream has done "…lots worse than that. Anyway. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots."

* Loki's eventual fate. It's bad enough that he had already been tied to a rock with his own son's entrails and had a snake drip poison on his face, but after he escapes, he gets his neck snapped and his eyes put by the Corinthian. Being a god, this doesn't kill him. When Odin and Thor find him, they tie him back on to the rock, still with his snapped neck and lack of eyes, and the snake carries on dripping poison on his face. ''Into his empty eye sockets.''

* Not sure this is really true but it seems that The Endless, with the exception of Desire, have undergone various dramatic changes, which often included serious collateral damage. Delight changed into Delirium, Despair died, Destruction left and Dream [[spoiler: also died]]. If this is supposed to be a trend, Death is next.

** Doctor Destiny going berserk with Dreams' ruby in the dreaming destroying everything before absorbing Dream into it, and then preparing to destroy the ruby. We get an EarlyBirdCameo by Destiny and the narration tells us that he's afraid to turn the page in his book to find out the outcome.
