* The fact that so many interns ''died'' in the course of the show. ''And Chris is perfectly cool with admitting this on national TV.''

* Without Cody around, Sierra starts to lose what's left of her sanity, and finds Cameron a suitable replacement, going as far as imagining Cameron with Cody's aspect. After a full episode of being in very good terms with her, Cameron starts fearing Sierra, knowing already about her stalker-ish ways and how far she can go with them. Later on, she acts more and more delusional even when Cameron's on the other team.

* Alejandro got so injured in the 'World Tour' final that he needed mechanical assistance to survive and recover; at 'All Stars' first episode, we realize he had been inside that robotic suit for A WHOLE YEAR. Did his parents know where he was the whole time? And if they did, they even care? Probably not if they allowed their son to spend a whole year in these conditions.
** Chris mentions that the communication chip broke while he was in prison, leaving Alejandro trapped, alone and unable to speak for as long as [[AndIMustScream several months]].

* Ezekiel is back on the island, and with a murderous vendetta against Chris, who, at the end of 'Zeek and Ye Shall Find', ends terrified of him. Even if this can be seen as karmic retribution from all the stuff Chris did to him (he even mentions them in this episode), the point is that now there's a feral killer on the loose, and one that still conserves enough human-like intelligence to set up a trap and capture those who might try rescue his prey. Zeke also has acidic spit, thanks to the toxic waste exposure.

* Chris falling and being impaled on a pole in "The Sand Witch Project", complete with a horrifying amount of blood. He was actually faking the whole thing, but that still doesn't stop this scene from being particularly horrifying to watch.
* In "Masters of Disasters" the second stunt goes horribly wrong when Chef accidentally breaks the lever for the water flow, leaving the campers [[DrowningPit trapped inside a submarine prop rapidly filling up with water.]] Since the Grips had accidentally destroyed the combination lock code paper they won earlier, and the other exits were blocked by a shark and a jet of fire, they would all have drowned if [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands Harold]] hadn't been able to crack the lock. While this situation is scary in and of itself, this reminds us that while Chris and Chef aren't actually trying to kill the contestants, Chris does like to make the challenges a little more interesting every now and then, with near fatal results at times. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids The fact that this is a kid's show]] and [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt that Chris would face horrible lawsuits if anyone did die]] does nothing to deter this possibility.



* [[YourCheatingHeart "Boyfriend Kisser".]] The song is [[AwesomeMusic pretty catchy]] and the lyrics aren't too bad, but the visuals are very disturbing. The song is about Courtney wanting to get back at Gwen for kissing Duncan. In the video, it shows [[ArtShift blueprint-style images]] of Gwen being crushed with rocks ''four times'' and ending up badly hospitalized and, near the end, being shot at directly with three missiles. Nothing exceedingly graphic is shown, but the implications are terrifying and full of DisproportionateRetribution, which is [[TheWoobie made worse]] if you're a Gwen fan.



* Amy's fate at the end of ''Twinning Isn't Everything''. She ends up eating a poison apple and is presumed to suffer from an inflamed esophagus, causing her to look like she's suffocating. To add insult to injury, she is promptly eliminated. Made worse by the fact that [[TheDogBitesBack Samey]] willingly fed her sister the poison apple, knowing full well that it was poisoned. She deserved it, but still.

Who knew a series of animated Canadian reality shows starring groups of teenagers [[NightmareFuel could be so terrifying]]?

to:

Who knew a series of animated Canadian reality shows starring groups of teenagers [[NightmareFuel could ''Note to editors:'' NightmareFuel has long been subject to rampant misuse, so be so terrifying]]?sure your example actually qualifies. Valid examples are things that continued to affect the troper posting the example after said troper finished consuming the work. Don't post things that merely scared characters in-universe, ''might'' be scary to someone else, or involved phobia objects. Anything that's PlayedForLaughs is unlikely to qualify. No speculation or hypotheticals, please.

Adding dubious examples in a misguided attempt to make a work look DarkerAndEdgier than it is only makes the troper community look [[FragileFlower easily frightened]].



* Courtney. On the outside, she seems like a sweet, obedient, slightly bossy, rule-following overachiever, but starting from the first special, she's had no qualms about exposing her true colors - ruthless, mean-spirited, manipulative, and vicious. And she's perfectly willing to let someone die if it means she gets what she wants. Case in point: In the first special, she was [[MoralEventHorizon willing to drop Owen, DJ, Cody and Tyler to their deaths just so she could have the $1,000,000.]]
* Cody's weird stretchy expressions. The face he makes whenever he's flirting with Gwen makes him look like a rapist. The way his mouth stretches and the gap in his teeth goes all huge and his eyes go small, is just...urgh.
** PuppyDogEyes. Horrible, horrible PuppyDogEyes.
* For only competing in three episodes, Eva's made of this. Superhuman strength combined with a fuse [[HairTriggerTemper about half an inch long]] and an ability to hold grudges that would make Courtney proud makes her incredibly dangerous. The "superhuman" thing isn't exaggerating either: she tangled with Sasquatchanakwa, a monster five times her size and probably ten times her weight, and curbstomped it in seconds. If she can do that, imagine what she would have done to Bridgette had the other campers not voted her out so quickly.
-->'''Eva:''' ''(after Bridgette nominates her to fight Sasquatchanakwa due to being pressured by the other campers)'' Here's a toe tag, surfer girl. [[ImpliedDeathThreat You'll be needing it for later.]]
* The confession cams are put in the communal bathrooms, right? So just how many hours of teenagers using the bathroom does Chris have?
** Actually, the confessional bathrooms are different from, the communal bathrooms, but its very possible Owen wasn't the only one to get them mixed up.

small.



* Cody after the garbage bomb explosion in "Phobia Factor". He looks like a zombie. Can't blame Bridgette for freaking out.



* Lindsay's muffled screaming when the burning hot marshmallow wax gets dropped onto her face in "No Pain, No Game". Her excitement afterwards over how the wax took off her lip hair offsets it a little, but still...yikes.
** There's also [[BodyHorror Izzy's swelled-up face]] after her poison ivy spa treatment in that episode.
* Izzy absofriggenlutely covered in bees. Damn...

episode. She's barely recognizable as human.



* Courtney in season two. She can tear through a hotel like rice paper. Especially some of her facial expressions.
** Trent in season two could qualify too. All of a sudden, he has a strange obsession with both Gwen and the number nine, complete with a creepy Leitmotif whenever both obsessions are provoked. Also, try comparing his character last season when he was one of the normal contestants to his character this season when he is one of the crazier contestants.
*** Season one Trent too. Things like the way it takes him a split-second to go from his usual nice guy act to threatening the beat Cody up if he's lying about Gwen liking him then straight back to nice guy again in ''Up the Creek'', or how he encourages Chris (who definitely would have been treating Geoff badly enough [[TheSociopath on his own]]) to hurt Geoff ''worse'' with his worst fear might be little moments, but are still troublesome.



** To make it worse, Word Of God confirms Kelsey is based on a real life fan and her [[http://8liana8.deviantart.com/art/My-Stuffed-Cody-76743316 Cody Doll]]. Although she isn't nearly as frightening,[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTYg7uQNxBY Or is she?]]



* Some of the campers' angry facial expressions from World Tour can give you the nightmares if you pause the show exactly at the right time.



** And speaking of songs, "Before We Die" is [[LyricalDissonance somewhat morbid and graphic.]]
--> But first me must cease dropping
--> Our goal here would be stopping
--> Before we smash into the ground from the sky
--> Flat into little pieces
--> [[BodyHorror Heads merged with our feetses]]
--> [[{{Understatement}} That would really suck and here's why...]]



* Some fans might have been frightened a bit after watching Ezekiel's cameo in Japan for the first time, a startling silhouette complete with red eyes and menacing facial expression.
* The baby mountain goat in "Slap Slap Revolution". Chef opens a crate with a nuclear symbol on the side, and a cute little baby goat hops out, next to an adult mountain goat. It bleats, the adult goat growls, and the baby goat '''ROARS,''' showing off a mouth full of massive, razor-sharp teeth. Chef covers his eyes with his hands...cut back to the baby goat, slurping down the adult goat's leg. And then it starts chasing down the contestants.



* There were a lot of offhand remarks about interns that died or got injured, and they were pretty funny in a dark sort of way. But actually witnessing an intern go flatline in the infirmary is a bit much.
* Zombie Ezekiel. Good ''lord.''

* There were a lot of offhand remarks about interns that died or got injured, and they were pretty funny in a dark sort of way. But actually witnessing an intern go flatline in the infirmary is a bit much.
* Zombie Ezekiel. Good ''lord.''lord.



* There's Cody's alien doppelganger in "The Ex-Files", who is arguably creepier than Zombie Ezekiel. His facial expression as he closes in on Cody leaves little to the imagination...
** Also, [[StalkerWithACrush you know who]] later arrives and sees two Cody's, one of which happens to be the alien clone. Once Sierra hugs them both, the fake one ''bursts ectoplasm'' on both Sierra and the actual Cody.
* The ''entire'' GainaxEnding of season three. Sure there's the ever-so-nightmarish Zombie Ezekiel and Darth Alejandro to threaten your dreams, but there's also the entire cast swimming for their lives away from falling lava rocks, Chris and Chef's boat crashing, and Heather about to be crushed by a giant flaming boulder. Also, never mind how Blaineley disappeared from the rest of the cast when they reached the water, ([[FridgeHorror notice she's attached to a dolly]]). It probably makes you wonder, "What the hell were the producers thinking? Did they even think about how their fans would react to this?"



* The various mutant animals in ''Revenge of the Island.'' The gigantic woolly beavers with spikes sticking out of their backs, the hairless squirrel that can shoot lightning out of its eyes, the venomous seagull-octopus fusions, the frog with three eyes, the supersized bipedal rabbit with two heads, the humongous land anglerfish, and the maggot that is more than a hundred times its logical size, with more to come. The only non-mutated animals that have been sighted thus far are the bird that Dawn was talking to in ''Truth or Laser Shark'' and the worm it was eating.
* Chris' EvilLaugh in episode 1 of ''Total Drama Revenge of the Island''. Even the new contestants are creeped out.
-->'''Chris''': Relax, it'll all make sense eventually! [[ClaspYourHandsIfYouDeceive Heh]]. [[EvilLaugh Hehehheh]]. [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Heheheheheh]]! [[SlasherSmile AHAHAHAHA! AHAHAHA]] ''[[LaughingMad AHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA]]!!!''
* In "Runaway Model", Chris ponders what happened to the interns he sent to Boney Island for him. Of course, we are treated to a panning shot of their remains.



* Scott's fate near the end of the season. He has a toxic marshmallow ''burn into him'' after his elimination is announced and ends up covered in a cast on the catapult with Fang the shark, who was eager to maul him all season. The next time he is seen he's placed in a machine, most of his body is implied to be gone, and he can't move or speak. Similar to Alejandro, his condition also appears to leave him far from recovery. Although by the next season, he's fully recovered.

Although by the next season, he's fully recovered.



* The prison scene at the beginning of ''Total Drama All Stars'' and Chris's SanitySlippage is a mix of unsettling and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious.]]



*** Not to mention that Dakota and Ezekiel are still in their monster and feral states, respectively... So, after more than one year, they hadn't recovered at all. It's possible that their conditions are irreversible.
** Not only are the other personalities [[TheDreaded terrified of him]] but now Mike can't find them in his head. The last thing we heard was Svetlana screaming as the evil one re-emerges...
*** This becomes even scarier for him since, at this point, Mike had finally started to gain some control over his personalities, and seeing them as an important part of his life. Mike literally feels that part of himself is missing, and getting extreme loneliness.
** Then there's the fact that unlike the other personalities, the Malevolent One doesn't need a trigger to take over Mike's body, coming out as he pleases with Mike being unaware of this. Also, this personality seems to 'bleed' into Mike's normal personality like when he laughed at Sam's jellyfish sting, despite it being out of character for him.



* The Malevolent One secretly sabotages the challenge in "Food Fright", possibly traumatizing Courtney for life.
-->'''Courtney:''' "Seen future... ''(takes a deep breath)'' Must. Stop. Eating. Cake."
* Sierra hallucinating Cody's head on her teammates' bodies... including Zoey's. The combination of his head and her anatomy is not quite nightmarish, but still rather unsettling.
* Mike's evil personality took over Mike's body in Moon Madness. It gets worse, he can now act and sound like Mike, and he almost killed Zoey and Cameron.
* When Chris is watching the challenge right before the commercial break in Moon Madness, the far left monitor shows Slenderman.Hope he's carrying $20.
** Though it's PlayedForLaughs, a lot of fans were thoroughly disturbed by nice Heather, even in-universe.
--> Alejandro: I've never seen Heather so nice before, and it is terrifying.
* Larry's babies and one of them has a face of Chris. How did he manage to knock-up a plant you wonder?
** Made worse by the fact Larry is treated like a son/daughter by Chris.
** Larry was exposed to the toxic waste and due to their relationship that would explain why one looks like Chris
** Imagine that seedling growing up to become [[UncannyValley a giant man-eating Chris face]]
* Mike's evil personality is in complete control after Mike hits himself in the head with a boulder in "No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition", and Mike's original personality ends trapped inside his own mind, shackled to the same boulder he used, and unable to escape. Then when Duncan finally recognizes him due to his whistling to the song "In The Hall Of The Mountain King", he tells the viewers that Mike, in his evil personality, was known as Mal and was also in the juvie that Duncan was in and that he basically ran the place. Afterwards, we learn that Duncan ''fears'' him.
* Zoey nearly being eaten alive by piranhas and Mike is having trouble saving her because Mike wants to save her but Mal doesn't. Ultimately Mal chooses to save Zoey solely to not blow his cover.
* Scott being used as live bait; especially terrifying considering what Fang did to him previously, and even more when we see that Fang doesn't really care about any other contestant, seeing Scott as his TrademarkFavoriteFood.
** It's unsettling in general how often Scott's post traumatic stress over Fang is [[BlackComedy played for comedy]].
* Mal was actually willing to ''kill'' Cameron by dropping a boulder on him in "Zeek and Ye Shall Find. Fortunately, he doesn't get the chance.
* Ezekiel is back on the island, and with a murderous vendetta against Chris, who, at the end of 'Zeek and Ye Shall Find', ends terrified of him. Even if this can be seen as karmic retribution from all the stuff Chris did to him (he even mentions them in this episode), the point is that now there's a feral killer on the loose, and one that still conserves enough human-like intelligence to set up a trap and capture those who might try rescue his prey.
** Also, Zeke now has acidic spit, thanks to the toxic waste exposure.
*** Most of the episode is pure NightmareFuel for Gwen; she goes underground (her biggest phobia), knowing there's mutant feral psycho around, and she's also in complete darkness for a while until Zoey finds her, and the psycho captures her shortly after, leaving Gwen alone again; and when she finds another contestant, Cameron, he's in a near-death experience. All this to save Chris of all people!! For her, this is also a CallBack to the Slasher Movie's challenge from Season 1, and the Jack The Ripper's one from Season 3, but this time knowing the danger is real and that those targeted by Ezekiel might not survive.
*** Adding to that, think of how terrifying it must have been to be in Cameron's position. He's convinced that Mike and Zoey are the only people he can trust, after being extremely confused when seeing all the votes against him under Mike's bed. He's left hanging to his possible death but he won't even let Alejandro save him because of how convinced he is to not trust anyone but Mike. And then, he gets crushed by boulders, causing his elimination. During his final goodbye to Mike, Mal reveals himself. And there's nothing Cameron can do but scream. That must really damage someone psychologically. He's left to wonder what was ever real between him and Mike, considering how easily Mal was able to disguise himself.
* Mal gave Svetlana the choice to either sculpt fish out of butter, or [[{{KilledOffForReal}} cease to exist!]] Oh, and it doesn't help that before we learn that Mal is accessing Svetlana's powers, we see her flickering on and off, like she's about to disappear!
* In "Sundae, Muddy Sundae", it's revealed that Mal forced Vito to do a ventriloquist act with a puppet that looks just like Mal. Said puppet then ''comes to life and reveals that it's watching them'' with scary [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes.]] Then, Mal says they'll never beat him, with a flame coming out of the doll's eye...
* The newly "repaired" Total Drama Machine. It's missing an eye, is fixed together with planks, ropes, and tape, and has a mallet for a hand, which it will use mercilessly beat on anyone. Naturally, that anyone is [[ButtMonkey Scott]].
** The ScreamDiscretionShot in which the robot pummels Scott is a bit on the disturbing side as well. It starts off humorous, but grows more and more unsettling as Scott's screams become more blood curdling.
** Not only that, but it can rotate its head 180 degress.
*** A relatively minor example in this same episode; a huge crocodile attacks Zoey, and Chris pauses the action before going to commercial break. What makes it scarier is that Zoey is on her own, her feet stuck on the swamp, and Mike's certainly not gonna save her this time. It's only thanks to her quick thinking and ImprobableAimingSkills that she survives.
* Mal gets even ''creepier'' here! He even sends Chris to the panic room after [[JumpScare he sneaks up behind Gwen!]]
* Mal briefly tricks Mike into thinking that ''he'' was the original personality instead of Mike.
* Zoey is in the final two now, competing against her boyfriend's AxeCrazy SuperPoweredEvilSide, without anyone who can really help her stop Mal from hurting her if he wants to, and now that Mal is almost sure Zoey discovered the truth, he has no reasons to restrain himself.
* The eliminated All-stars being trapped in balloons that are filled with Owen farts. That would be bad enough, but while Gwen, Cameron, Heather and Al are freed, the others float away and don't return. AT ALL. It's even said that they may be floating toward the ''SUN.'' All we hear of them are their terrified screams...
** Adding to it, it really makes the theme song's line of "I wanna live close to the sun." incredibly disturbing.
* Mal saying that if Heather and Al get in his way at all, he'll ''bury them alive''!
* The final challenge, a moat of toxic waste, a moat of lava, a moat with Fang, and finally [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Chef with a meatball cannon]].
** In fact, Chris's lawyers told him too tone it down, ''repeatedly''! Chris even says that they will likely die.
* Mal was going to ''throw Heather in toxic waste'' and ''drown Zoey''.
* Chris allowing Heather, Alejandro, Cameron, and Gwen a chance at winning just to see people suffer. Even for Chris that's low.

He's convinced that Mike and Zoey are the only people he can trust, after being extremely confused when seeing all the votes against him under Mike's bed. He's left hanging to his possible death but he won't even let Alejandro save him because of how convinced he is to not trust anyone but Mike. And then, he gets crushed by boulders, causing his elimination. During his final goodbye to Mike, Mal reveals himself. And there's nothing Cameron can do but scream. That must really damage someone psychologically. He's left to wonder what was ever real between him and Mike, considering how easily Mal was able to disguise himself.
* Mal gave Svetlana the choice to either sculpt fish out of butter, or [[{{KilledOffForReal}} cease to exist!]] Oh, and it doesn't help that before we learn that Mal is accessing Svetlana's powers, we see her flickering on and off, like she's about to disappear!
* In "Sundae, Muddy Sundae", it's revealed that Mal forced Vito to do a ventriloquist act with a puppet that looks just like Mal. Said puppet then ''comes to life and reveals that it's watching them'' with scary [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes.]] Then, Mal says they'll never beat him, with a flame coming out of the doll's eye...
* The newly "repaired" Total Drama Machine. It's missing an eye, is fixed together with planks, ropes, and tape, and has a mallet for a hand, which it will use mercilessly beat on anyone. Naturally, that anyone is [[ButtMonkey Scott]].
** The ScreamDiscretionShot in which the robot pummels Scott is a bit on the disturbing side as well. It starts off humorous, but grows more and more unsettling as Scott's screams become more blood curdling.
** Not only that, but it can rotate its head 180 degress.
*** A relatively minor example in this same episode; a huge crocodile attacks Zoey, and Chris pauses the action before going to commercial break. What makes it scarier is that Zoey is on her own, her feet stuck on the swamp, and Mike's certainly not gonna save her this time. It's only thanks to her quick thinking and ImprobableAimingSkills that she survives.
* Mal gets even ''creepier'' here! He even sends Chris to the panic room after [[JumpScare he sneaks up behind Gwen!]]
* Mal briefly tricks Mike into thinking that ''he'' was the original personality instead of Mike.
* Zoey is in the final two now, competing against her boyfriend's AxeCrazy SuperPoweredEvilSide, without anyone who can really help her stop Mal from hurting her if he wants to, and now that Mal is almost sure Zoey discovered the truth, he has no reasons to restrain himself.
* The eliminated All-stars being trapped in balloons that are filled with Owen farts. That would be bad enough, but while Gwen, Cameron, Heather and Al are freed, the others float away and don't return. AT ALL. It's even said that they may be floating toward the ''SUN.'' All we hear of them are their terrified screams...
** Adding to it, it really makes the theme song's line of "I wanna live close to the sun." incredibly disturbing.
* Mal saying that if Heather and Al get in his way at all, he'll ''bury them alive''!
* The final challenge, a moat of toxic waste, a moat of lava, a moat with Fang, and finally [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Chef with a meatball cannon]].
** In fact, Chris's lawyers told him too tone it down, ''repeatedly''! Chris even says that they will likely die.
* Mal was going to ''throw Heather in toxic waste'' and ''drown Zoey''.
* Chris allowing Heather, Alejandro, Cameron, and Gwen a chance at winning just to see people suffer. Even for Chris that's low.
exposure.



* Amy's treatment of her sister is outright abusive and deadly considering she kicked her off to her presumed death when she didn't know she had a working parachute. She was even upset she had one.
* Amy's fate at the end of ''Twinning Isn't Everything''. She ends up eating a poison apple and is presumed to suffer from an inflamed esophagus, causing her to look like she's suffocating. To add insult to injury, she is promptly eliminated.
** Made worse by the fact that [[TheDogBitesBack Samey]] willingly fed her sister the poison apple, knowing full well that it was poisoned. She deserved it, but still.

* As Ella sings her elimination song, her final line is "I'll try my best not to '''die'''."



** Evil Scarlett, both in and out of universe. In her audition video, she has a globe with a knife and a knife in it. Unlike a character like Izzy, this is completely played straight.
