[[caption-width-right:350: "[[AltText Fight your fears and survive]]" is one thing, but... [[NightmareRetardant STAY AWAY, MOTHER BRAIN.]]]]
Despite the [[SweetDreamsFuel adorableness]] of Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily, there are still some things that are deeply unsettling...
----
* Wario, at least according to [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2008/05/16/16-wario/ Kirby.]]
** [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2009/09/21/small-delay/ Even Giygas fears Waluigi.]]
* Kirby [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2008/08/01/reflection/ thinks too much]].
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2008/12/05/110-townfolk/ This is what happens when you forget to play Animal Crossing for a while...]]
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2009/04/14/154-haircurl/ Whatever this is]], it's sure not Jigglypuff, and it sure is terrifying...
* Kirby's and Jigglypuff's children are [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2009/08/10/179-proposal/ MONSTERS.]]
* Um... [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2009/10/30/195-zombie-attack/ Zombie Kirby?]] That is the stuff of nightmares.
** We only see a bit of zombie Bowser but the fangs are kinda disturbing. Oh wait, that's a bit of skull too. Don't try to think to much about the rest of zombie Bowser, even the concept kinda fits this trope ([[NinjaPirateZombieRobot zombie dragon turtle]] if you don't get it).
** Of course, there's zombie-everyone-else too. Luckily this is followed by intentional NightmareRetardant: [[spoiler:The zombies actually hunger for education and all graduate from college]]. [[DoubleSubversion But then]], Kirby finishes the story [[TakeOurWordForIt with something offscreen]], and the listeners are seriously {{squick}}ed.
** And then there was Mother Brain, for NightmareRetardant.
* '''[[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2010/08/26/266-lickitung-has-it-rough/ Weezing.]]''' Doubles as NauseaFuel.
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2010/10/11/279-two-birds/ Link's epic]] SlasherSmile. Oh nonononono.
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2010/10/28/287-doppelgangers/ This Halloween comic]]. The [[ArtShift sketchy art style]] doesn't help.
* As with the ''{{Kirby}}'' games, Dark Matter in the Cocoon Academy arc.
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/comic151.html "00000009 - Waluigi the Philosopher"]]
-->'''Waluigi''': "Sometimes Waluigi thinks, he thinks about the most important things in life..." "'''[[GrossUpCloseUp WAAA]][[NightmareFace AAA]]'''"
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2008/06/09/35-leafpile/ This comic]] [[BodyHorror might deter you]] from jumping into leaf piles ever again.
* Dedede's last expression on [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2008/07/28/face-off/ this page]]. [[GrossUpCloseUp Ugh]]. (Of course, it's also [[FunnyMoment hilarious]].)
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2011/09/29/366-divide-and-conquer/ Behold,]] FridgeHorror done right!
* [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames Link's]] face suddenly becoming really detailed in [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2011/04/01/323-philips-box/ the third strip down here]].
* "If It Takes a Lifetime" takes the extra lives mechanic to a distressing [[EarnYourHappyEnding (but ultimately inspiring)]] place.
** And then comic [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2012/05/10/408-resourcefulness/ 408]] comes and ruins it all! [[SarcasmMode Fun]].
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2010/12/17/comic-299-carol-of-the-waa/ This Christmas musical comic]]. Turn the sound on and wait till the end for the creepiest thing ever said by Santa Claus.
* Done InUniverse in [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2012/09/18/3769/ "20th Anniversary"]], where Dedede puts together a slide show showcasing [[NightmareFuel/{{Kirby}} some of the unnerving bosses Kirby's faced.]] [[HeroicBSOD He doesn't]] [[TroubledFetalPosition take it well.]]
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2012/08/14/429-toilet-and-trouble/ Oh dear lord...]]
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2009/12/17/206-a-mushroom-kingdom-carol-part-6/ A Mushroom Kingdom Carol, part 6.]] As if the [[Literature/AChristmasCarol Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come]] wasn't freaky enough, now we have [[spoiler: [[HumanoidAbomination Shadow]] [[VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine Mario]]]] donning the BlackCloak and throwing some surreal and frightening imagery in our faces.
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2013/02/26/467-phantoon-has-it-rough/ Just...the bottom-left panel of this....Phantoom has it rough indeed...]]
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2013/03/26/475-opposites/ This comic]] seems harmless enough, and in fact includes an [[TastesLikeDiabetes absolutely adorable baby Vaporeon]] ... until you get to the AltText, where although Flareon (Fire) + Glaceon (Ice) = Vaporeon (Water), Flareon (Fire) + Leafeon (Grass) = something that apparently didn't work out too well for the offspring there.
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2013/05/14/487-sonics-eyes/ This trio comic]] pokes fun at Sonic's eyes, but the first and last ones can be a bit unsettling
** [[spoiler: it's just revealed to be [[NightmareRetardant bugs on his sleeping mask in the third one]]]]
* In [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2011/01/17/303-yoshis-experiment/ this comic]], Yoshi eats an egg he created by swallowing a Shy Guy and the Shy Guy comes out unharmed but dizzy at the other end. Silly and lighthearted so far. And then the AltText. "It's even worse when he eats omelettes." YEEK.
* In [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2013/02/12/463-saturn-valley-hot-springs/ comic 463]], ''[[VideoGame/{{Earthbound}} Ness and his team]]'' are relaxing in the hot springs when Master Belch -a sentient pile of vomit- decides to take a bath with them. Their expressions talk volumes, really.
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2013/10/24/522-the-legion-part-1/ The Legion.]] Where do I begin?
** The AltText may be a good place: "Oh Kirby, what hilarious thing have you turned yourself into this time?". Yes. Hilarious, indeed. *shudders*
** So, here's what happens: [[spoiler:Kirby has become some sort of abomination, a demented blob with various parts of his friends (such as Meta Knight's mask, Mario's hat, Link's elf ear, Yoshi's egg, and so on) stuck onto him, looking all mutated. You can see the words "hday Met", presumably Kirby at Meta Knight's birthday party, where he decided to swallow them all. His line of reasoning?]]
--> [[spoiler:Kirby: My friends were being mean... so I made sure they'd never leave me! Now they'll ALWAYS be a part of me...!]]
** Afterwards, [[spoiler:he proceeds to consume everything because he wants more friends. That's right. He goes on a rampage and destroys multiple worlds, and by the end, he's a massive, unrecognizable, faceless blob. No features, no eyes, just a terrifying '''abomination''' with the faces of everyone he has devoured showing up on his body, with countless citizens added to the mix. It isn't until Adeleine paints a picture of what Kirby actually is (the cute pink puffball everyone knows him to be) and makes Kirby swallow it, that the effects are reversed and everyone who was swallowed is now safe and sound, if a bit confused at what went down,]] and then Kirby is back to his old self. [[spoiler:...For now]].
** Finally, the creator put up a warning that these panels are not suitable for younger readers. That's how disturbing this Halloween special was. Yikes.
* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2014/07/10/576-mii/ It is me.]] [[KillAndReplace Mario.]]
** The AltText makes it worse: "[[FridgeHorror This may have happened several times before, and we just never noticed]]."
