* FreudWasRight
-->'''Dr. Henry Killinger''' ''(in the form of Dr. Venture's father's penis)'': This is the moment your feelings of inadequacy first manifested themselves! When your father turned from role model to tormentor/rival! WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?!
** There's also Jonas, Jr.'s "late 60's Ultra Death Ray." It's shaped like a penis and every man in the room wants to have a go with it.
--->If that thing were a woman, I'd marry it.\\
"And I'd jeopardize our friendship by nailing your hot wife."
** Jonas Sr.'s drill tank from "What Goes Down Must Come Up" merits a number of penis jokes as it's clearly built for penetration.
** Brock and Lieutenant Baldavitch turn the docking procedure of a spacecraft into one long act of foreplay. Dr. Venture is unamused.
** The entirety of "Assisted Suicide": [[spoiler:Pete-Thanatos and Billy-Eros, various versions of Rusty as Id, Ego and Superego, the "invisible harem" helping fix Rusty's "little boy", (not to mention Rusty's Id apparently shipping Billy/Pete)]] Brock and Hatred fighting over how to handle Dean's "problem", [[spoiler:with one father figure humiliatingly spraying his naked ass with a hose but at least taking the initiative, while the other thinks it's too harsh, but doesn't come up with any other solution, standing there uselessly, until the actual father finally arrives and sorts things out]]...there are too many in this episode to list.
--> "Well put, Count Freud."

** 21/Gary, who witnessed [[spoiler: his best friend die in an explosion, left the Monarch to work for SPHINX, only for them to leave him the following episode, and spent the next few episodes after SPHINX was blown up just prowling around the Venture Compound before finally crawling back to his old boss]].

** General Timothy Treister manages to manipulate [[spoiler:SPHINX, the OSI and the Guild while pretending to be crazy from Hulkism.]] His claim that he "invented the secret agent business" isn't that outlandish.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In "The Lepidopterists," [[spoiler:21 and 24 spend the episode lampshading their borderline-unnatural tendency to escape certain death, predicting that the well-prepared and evidently competent "Henchman #1" won't even last the mission (he doesn't). Only three episodes later, 24 is suddenly KilledOffForReal. And to add insult to injury, Scott Hall, a.k.a Henchman #1, a.k.a Zero, was revealed in season 4 to have survived his encounter with Brock.]]

* NightmareFuel:
** [[NightmareFuel/TheVentureBrothers Has its-own page.]]
** The first part of Dr. Venture's "{{Flashback}}" in ''The Doctor Is Sin''. It opens with a young Rusty eating some cereal (and the first spoonful is arranged to read FACE YOUR FEAR), then his father comes in wearing nothing but briefs, saying good morning. Rusty tells him that he couldn't sleep, that he had heard noises. Jonas then says that he was just having a little sleepover...and then his fly is suddenly open, [[BodyHorror AND HIS COCK HAS DR. KILLINGER'S FACE ON IT. And it's talking. Then it starts strangling Rusty while extending like a snake.]]
** Tiny Attorney. The man is a midget GROWING OUT OF THE STOMACH OF AN INBRED MAN that sounds as if he suffocates whenever Tiny comes out.
** The Bear from "Bright Lights, Dean City" see BearsAreBadNews.
** The floating head hologram that The Sovereign uses to lead the Guild of Calamitous Intent. It's like some weird live action/CG/animation hybrid that doesn't quite move like it should, and it's unsettling as hell, even if what he's saying is hilarious.



* WhatAnIdiot: In "Hansome Ransom," the Monarch corners Captain Sunshine in Sunshine's own base, cooly informing him that he knows that Captain Sunshine's powers don't work at night. So what does he use to attack the ''solar powered'' superhero? A special ray gun built to emit ''sunbeams identical to the kind Captain Sunshine uses''. Predictably, his attempt at sentencing Cap to DeathByIrony just ends up repowering the superhero.

** [[spoiler:The late]] 24 calling upon the spirits of Speedy and UsefulNotes/WoodrowWilson (no, seriously) during ''Pinstripes And Poltergeists''. And what is 21 supposed to do for them? Showing off his ability to recall celebrity signature perfumes.

** Almost any episode/scene in which General Treister appears has a tendency to lapse into this, whether it's his grandstanding at the O.S.I./Guild summit and naming the delegates after pop culture figures, challenging Hunter Gathers to a wrestling bout in lieu of "negotiation" for a prisoner, or piloting the O.S.I. hoverquarters clothed only in a toga made from the American flag. That these events are not lampshaded in any way is a testament to the bizarre nature of the Venture Bros' universe.
