Much of it is depicted here [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgXYUSAYHZc]], from about 1:40 in to 4:20. It is so bad that it even causes Babar to have nightmares in the first half of episode 2, "City Ways", about his mother's death, complete with a spooky storm outside. Thankfully, [[YouMonster the]] [[YouBastard Hunter]] dies a deserving death in #episode five.

** The episode "The City of Elephants". Halfway through the episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5rKprBF6AM]], starting around 2:11, Babar has this twisted nightmare where he gets confronted by "The [[EldritchAbonimation Beast of Misfortune"]], a giant red elephant that [[HellisthatNoise laughs/growls]] etc. in a very deep voice, and "The Beast of Haste", a small white ghost elephant thing capable of [[Shapeshifther contorting itself into various shapes.]]

** The pilot episode, "Babar's First Step", in which a viewer is introduced to the merry elephant tribe before Babar grew up and "civilized" them, in which Babar's blissfull times of playing in ponds with other baby elephants and his mother are ended by a hunter with a rifle. He gets no name...he is "the Hunter". The elephants don't know what the sound of his rifle blasting means, and [[WhatAnIdiot the elders assume it is a "monster".]] Babar's mother is eventually shot while the herd are fleeing the Hunter, complete with [[TheWoobie Babar ]] being thrown from her back and screaming and crying for her in the mud after she is shot.

** Also,the aforementioned [[Wham fate]] of [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse the Hunter]] himself is pretty freaky as it is distressingly Unsettling. In the episode, the Hunter sets a fire in the jungle to help him and his men fight {{Babar]] and the other animals, but the fire gets out of control and starts sweeping back over the camp. [[ScrewthisImOuttaHere His men]] freak out and drive off in a jeep, being so panicked that they actually ''drive straight through the closed gate'' in their justified haste to get away. [[TheDeterminator The Hunter]], however, refuses to leave, screaming at them to come back, then doing a SkywardScream about how he will ''not'' run and [[IronicEcho how he vows to destroy the animals...]] [[JerkassWoobie which then]] trails off into a ScreamDesolationShot of incoherent,Enraged wailing [[GoryDiscrectionShot as flames simply sweep over the screen.]] In a later episode, there's a [[CallBack flashback]] to this scene as Babar talks to his children about the past, and he mentions almost casually [[NothingIsScarier that was the last that was ever]] [[UnfortunateImplications seen of the Hunter.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'': The Medusa Bug (from the eponymous episode in the first season) spawned a city devouring plague that threatened to petrify a city and doom its residents to death by energy decay. The fact that nothing could stop it made it scary, the fact that there was nowhere to run made it terrifying, and seeing the woman who unleashed it laughing as it consumed Mainframe made it even worse. Thankfully, Bob was immune and got Hexodecimal to reverse it with a VictoryIsBoring speech. She let out a BigNo upon the realization that w/ everything petrified there would be no audience for her mad antics.
** The end of "Game Over", in which Enzo's BeginnersLuck finally runs out, leaving Mainframe without a Guardian and everyone presuming him (and [=AndrAIa=] and Frisket) nullified. Beware of everything following the computer's announcement of "Game Over".
** ''End Prog''. Its the end of the world and there's nothing you can do to stop it. Everything falls apart as the system voice says "Warning, System Crash" over and over with an alarm noise constantly going off. Everyone dies as everything fades to black. But the User restart the system, which Bob was counting on, even though it was risky.



* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' has quite a lot of this. For instance,in one sketch where a scared child tells his mother there are monsters in his closet. Her eyes tun red,and with a sinister tone of voice she says, "I know."
** "Sunny Muffins." A little girl rips a pegasus's wings off and kidnaps him, brutally whipping him and taking him as a prisoner in her barn.
** The infamous "tooth fairy" sketch.
*** "Darkest sketch! Darkest sketch!"



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'' has great animation, a kick-ass opening song, is more colorful than a box of Crayola crayons, is quite humorous, and its main character, The Warden, is an adorable megalomaniac, PsychopathicManChild (imagine Willy Wonka running a prison facility). Then... near the end of each episode, a four- to five-minute-long fight scene takes place, amounting to what can only be described as "candy-colored ultra-violence on some of the most illegal hallucinogens/weed you can imagine."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUeKuSN0vZE Jailbot's dream]] may be the scariest part of the whole show due to the UncannyValley animation.



* Zombie Ezekiel from ''TotalDramaWorldTour''. Here's what happened: After spending numerous days inside of the plane, Ezekiel ended up having green skin, having bloodshot eyes, and lost his ability to speak. Several episodes later he looked even ''worse'', with all of his hair gone and is shown in a complete feral state. During the finale after he retrieved the million, he ends up falling into the volcano ''extremely graphically'' as he is slowly consumed by the lava, in an homage to ''[[LordOfTheRings Return of the King]]''. After that he is presumed to be dead by many fans, is launched out of the volcano while screaming in pain as his skin is completely burnt by the lava ([[spoiler:although he is still shown to be alive]]), wasn't seen resurfacing after crash-landing on a boat, and it could be currently assumed that he ''will never recover from his experience''.
** His deterioration was a parody of Smeágol's gradual devolution into Gollum in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'', for context.

* Cow and Chicken: The cartoon was already pretty creepy and disturbing itself, but some episodes were just plain nightmarish. Like the episode where Chicken gets kissed by a girl and the boys give him the old school-age "cootie" scare, but the way the boys tell it is anything but harmless: it causes your eyeballs to fall out and squirt, your mouth to shrink, and your legs to fall off! And the nightmare Chicken has is scary too. He dreams he gets infected with the cooties and he starts having the symptoms, so he goes to the hospital. When he gets sent to the room for the cootie patients, the guys infected with the cooties look like something out of a zombie apocalypse! Thank God it was only a dream.

* The Faceless Hunter, from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''. Holy hell, this thing is a monster. He roams the universe, finding worlds that his master, Starro can conquer, by attaching horrible mind-control probes to their faces. He's a physical god, can teleport, turn invisible, and has a terrifying arsenal of traps and weapons. He spends most of the series tracking, defeating and mind-raping the various DC heroes. And if you can't be posessed by a Starro spore? He'll horribly kill you. It get's worse though. How and why did he become Starro's herald? [[spoiler: He asked Starro to destroy his homeworld, because his people were pacifists]]. It's pretty bad when a world-conqueror makes you look good by comparison. And the creepiest John [=DiMaggio=] voice imagineable doesn't help matters.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''
** "Lost Soul". First, the Batman suit is taken over by the cyber-ghost of a dead businessman. But wait, that's just so he can use the suit to be able to put his cyber-soul into the very meatspace body of his grandson. But that's not the scary part, oh no. That comes when Batman defeats the cyber-ghost, still in the Batman suit, causing his "program" to be wiped out, slowly. [[http://youtu.be/kAen2ULtKzg]] The cyber-consciousness get degraded, his mind devolving from teen, to kid (reciting basic arithmetic, no less), to infant, and then... gone.
** "Earth Mover". [[spoiler: The dessicated, rotting and [[AndIMustScream still alive]] corpse of a man who was buried in a cave-in along with toxic waste who managed to learn to control the earth.]]

* Even by the standards of ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'', the Halloween episode "The Shaving" takes the gold medal. The ''opening scene'' features a really creepy EyeScream. The actual episode features a "harmless" monster [[UnfortunateNames named Willie Nelson]] (he likes juice!) whom Master Shake tries to help become scarier. With ''less than a minute to go'' before the end credits, we see what's in the attic... [[spoiler:Dozens of bloody corpses piled like cordwood and hanging from the ceiling. Turns out the juice he drinks? It's human blood. Which he then gets by ripping Carl's arms off.]]
** The closet as seen in "Video Ouija" and "Dickesode" are some of the scariest moments.
--->"Frylock: I told you this closet is not to be opened! It is a horrible horrible place in there!"
** What happens to Santa Claus after Eggzilla burns him alive.
** "Global Grilling". Shake buys a dangerous grill that burns a hole in the ozone layer, brings the temperature up to 242 degrees, melts the icecaps, and leads to the invasion of Mucous Men that conquer the planet in 12 years time. Luckily, that was AllJustADream that Shake had.
