[[caption-width-right:350: The toy that scarred many generations of kids and grown-ups to come.]]

'''The film:'''
* [[BrokenMasquerade Woody and the mutant toys revolting against Sid.]]
** While Woody doing a [[ExorcistHead 360-degree head turn]] might have been creepy, it was cool when he completely broke his own rule of being inanimate around humans and being nice to children JUST to scare Sid.
--->'''Woody:''' ''[through speaker]'' From now on, you must take good care of your toys, because if you don't, [[ParanoiaFuel we'll find out, Sid]]! We toys can see ''[head rotates 360°]'' ''eeeeeveryyyyythiiiiing''... ''[actually speaking]'' So play '''nice'''.\\
''[Sid runs like hell while screaming his head off]''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1gnWBJnCXY An alternate version of the above-mentioned scene]] makes it a thousand times worse where the toys ''come out of the ground, Film/{{Night of the Living Dead|1968}} style.'' And it has some instances of MoodWhiplash and GettingCrapPastTheRadar, first starting off as a CrowningMomentOfFunny, then switching to scares, and then back to CMOF.
** Anything involving Sid.
--->'''Sid:''' Let's go home and... ''[[DeadlyEuphemism play]]''. Heh heh heh heh heh.....
** Lots of Sid's toys are pretty freaky, particularly the [[UncannyValley doll-head-on-an-Erector-set]][[http://i732.photobucket.com/albums/ww329/hotrods4ben/mutanttoys.png and the dismembered army men]]. [[NightmareRetardant Thankfully]], they're [[FaceOfAThug harmless despite their grotesque apperances]], and cooperate with Buzz and Woody to escape Sid's house.
** This moment:
--->'''Alien:''' Nirvana is coming. The mystic portal awaits.\\
'''Woody:''' Would you be quiet?! [[ComicallyMissingThePoint You guys don't get it, do you?]] Once we go into Sid's house, [[DeathTrap we won't be coming out.]]
* The alien that accompanied Woody and Buzz is shown being used as a chew toy by Scud. The camera cuts away before we can see the full extent of what was done to it, but judging by Woody and Buzz' expressions, it wasn't pretty.
** During the toy revolution, we briefly see the alien. It's dishevelled, mute and walks with its arms stretched out like a zombie.
* Sid's mouth though a magnifying glass while he "interrogates" Woody.
-->'''Sid:''' Where are your rebel friends now?
* Sid himself. The way he acts is the telltale sign of a sociopath in the making.
* Mr. Potato Head threatening to hang Woody.
* When Scud chases Buzz throughout the house he very nearly corners the space ranger, until he catches sight of Sid's father sleeping in a chair. Scud proceeds to timidly walk away. This coupled with Scud's typical aggressive behavior implies that Mr. Phillips may abuse the poor dog.
** This may also explain Sid's behavior.
* Upon entering Sid's room, Woody sees remnants of other toys who didn't make it out. Imagine being in a grimy, dimly lit room, and seeing a decapitated head floating around in a lava lamp, or disembodied arms sticking out of a waffle iron or an alarm clock, and realizing that your own painful demise is imminent.
-->'''Woody:''' We are gonna die...
* Sid blowing up (ie. killing) the Combat Carl doll. Being a toy tortured by a child and not allowed to move or break pose is creepy enough, but the Combat Carl could do nothing but resign to it's death motionless, with all the other toys unable to stop it.

* There's a Japanese doll of Woody that comes with [[http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/163/290/Revoltech-Woody-CGB-003_1274873453.jpg?1313537829 two faces]] you can put onto it. The second face (probably taken from a brief frame of Woody laughing at Buzz in the first film) is... [[NightmareFace unsettling.]] It's also become the basis of a rather twisted meme. "You're my favorite deputy" indeed.
* Technically, this comes from the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command spinoff, but it's ''Toy Story'' related, so it counts. In the pilot movie, the Pizza Planet Aliens are revealed to be united under a single Unimind. Zurg manages to steal it, corrupt it, and use it to spread his influence throughout the galaxy. This is done by giving the creatures affected his voice, his red eyes, and his personality. The sight of Star Command under the influence of Zurg is quite terrifying.
* Everything about [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sr8SXxnOMyE this commercial]] for the ''VideoGame/ToyStory'' video game. Specifically, the fact that it takes place at night in a dark alley, the music, and the fact that the teenage boy's head ends up on Babyface's body.
* In ''Toy Story: The Musical'', when Woody is taken by Andy to Pizza Planet, Mr. Potato Head rather unnervingly assures Woody that he and the other vengeful toys will be waiting for him when he gets back.
* The ''VideoGame/ToyStory'' game's first BossBattle: a NightmareSequence where Woody fights off a giant, flying Buzz Lightyear whose lasers and weaponry are very-much-real, which is further amplified by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyu8Z-v7nHo&index=6&list=PLXRkwGvXTai6Md_7IVTQBoNdgEK4ruG9n the sinister music that's playing]].
