* [=DarkNite=] and Nitemare. They come out of nowhere in ''VideoGame/YuGiOhDarkDuelStories'', can overwhelm you within turns, and come with broken cards. Their lines are oddly cryptic and mindscrewy.

* Several of the Shadow Games from the original manga and the Toei anime are incredibly dangerous, and many of them are from the main hero's SuperPoweredEvilSide. One of the mildest examples of the Penalty Games is setting someone on fire.

* In the dub, Umbra and Lumis actually make the [[NeverSayDie Shadow Realm]] terrifying by describing how Yugi and Kaiba will fall through the skyscraper ceiling if they lose the duel...
--->'''Lumis''': But you'll never reach the bottom.

* Despite the dub having most deaths be replaced with the Shadow Realm, the idea of the place is freaky. Basically we have what could be consider ''Yu-Gi-Oh'''s version of Hell, a place of darkness, pain, and agony where monsters will feast on your body and soul as you slowly disappear into oblivion--meaning you can die horribly and painfully while already dead. Anyone sent there increases the power of a Millennium Item, and it's implied the bearer of an Item can leech off trapped souls for extra power.

** Even worse than how Marik's father was killed in the manga is WHY;[[spoiler: he brutally tortured and then murdered (or so he thought) Rishid in front of Marik to punish him for sneaking outside, all while laughing and taunting his son about it like a psychopathy.]] and you wonder why Marik is so screwed up!
** Actually, in the manga, the scene following Marik's father's murder is extremely disturbing and heartbreaking. [[spoiler: In the Anime, Rishid was able to make Marik switch back to his normal self and then cradled him in his arms like a baby to try and calm him down. In the manga, he is able to make Dark Marik go away, but then proceeds to pass out due to blood lose, and normal Marik actually thinks he's DEAD.]] [[spoiler: Understandably, normal Marik is terrified and hysterical; his father is dead, his older brother is almost dead, there's blood EVERYWHERE, and it's implied that he thought Ishizu (Who had been smashed through a wall by Dark Marik) was dead as well. The most heart-wrenching part is how, after snapping out of being possessed by Dark Marik, normal Marik's first reaction is to cling to his father's mutilated corpse.]] [[spoiler: Just imagine how horrible that would be; you are a ten year old child who blacks out and comes to,only to realize that your entire family has just been murdered and you're alone in the midst of the carnage.]] [[spoiler: And then shadi showed up at the worst possible time; seriously,how else would a child who just saw his whole family apparently murdered react if what looks like a ghost randomly walks through the wall of their family's home? And Shadi's wording about why it happened was incredibly stupid; it actually made things worse and arguably finally pushed Marik over the edge.]] A lot of the fan base argues over whether or not his horrific childhood excuses what he did but after his hell hole of a childhood, especially in the manga, he is obviously very mentally disturbed; you kind of do have to excuse him because, given his mental state, something like what actually happened in the story happening was more or less inevitable. The manga and anime makes it quite clear that his father mentally and emotionally abused him (and occasionally hints that he was also physically abused, although not to the extent his brother was) and that pain and suffering was pretty much all he knew for the first ten or so years of his life. It still seems like he shouldn't be let off the hook, but keep in mind that he was so mentally disturbed, angry, in pain, and suicidal, that he created a demonic manifestation of his worst thoughts and feelings; it's really quite disturbing when you think about how mentally broken down, insane, and depressed you would have to be to do that, and it's made worse by the fact that fact that the person who actually did it was a ten year old child at the time. And given what happens later on in the story... yeah, he's probably screwed up so badly, that there really isn't any need to hate him or punish him further, you you really have to wonder how/if he is able to actually function after the story ends.

** There is actually one disturbing shadow realm scene that is actually arguably BETTER than the original scene; remember Ishizu's vision in her dreams of marik being tortured in the shadow realm?[[spoiler: In the original, Marik is literally BURNING IN HELL and screaming bloody murder while it is happening. It also contains some fridge horror; remember how Ishizu said that she was trying to save her little brother from a horrible fate, but never disclosed exactly what that fate was?..Yeah... I think this scene just answered that question.]]
** actually, a few of the sceens that the shadow realm/shadow powers replaced are arguably just as bad, if not worse. Dark Marik's Victory in the Duel with Dark Bakura and normal Marik is downright nightmarish in the dub with the magic purple glowy stuff, but just wait until you see the cut scenes of Dark Bakura literally being set ON FIRE and making psychotic, pained expressions while he's being burned. (yeah; normally, where there is purple stuff in the dub, there is actual fire in the original.) Also, marik being banished/consumed by Ra's attack is much more slow and detailed in the original and actually made this troper's hair stand on end; the flames are so hot, they actually melt his shirt off his body, an he is seen clutching his chest in pain and screaming horrifically with his eyes all wild and crazy because of the pain. This troper seriously wonder's how this manga and it's anime adaptions even managed to eventually be labeled as a children's series at all.



** And let's not forget how Pegasus creates his Toons - by sending them into Toon World and sealing them inside, if they want to or not. He's essentially conducting MindRape on the original monster to turn it into a PsychopathicManchild of itself. And let's not even get into the idea that Duel Monsters are supposed to be the incarnate souls of humans. [[spoiler:Just think about what the Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon means in terms of ''Kisara'']]... and does Pegasus ''realize'' this is what he's doing? The man does seem to like capturing souls...

* [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Imori and his Soul-eating Jar]] in Chapters 46 and 47 of the manga (and the Toei anime). In the manga Imori states that it takes the Jar about 3 months to fully consume a victim's soul, implying that you spend 3 months being eaten little by little.
