Nightmare Fuel: Anastasia
  • Rasputin is a living, rotting corpse. He frequently breaks apart and has to have his pieces put back in place. Although it does explain why he was so difficult to kill in real life.
    • Well, to be fair, he was supposed to be alive before his transformation into Koschei, so it's likely that being a lich didn't really factor into how hard it was to kill him.
    • That, or he's actually Koschei the Deathless.
  • The scene where Rasputin invades Anya's dream to make her fling herself over the edge of the boat? Eeep!
  • The death of Rasputin and his being disintegrated into dust. Also Rasputin making his Deal with the Devil in the opening sequence.
    • And briefly having his skin torn off during the above-mentioned scene so that he briefly became a skeleton!
    • He was stripped all the way to the bone; that means his skin, muscles, and organs were ripped from his skeletal frame. Makes one hope that the Dark Forces were kind enough to make it painless, otherwise... Ugh.
  • Rasputin trying to make Anya fall off the edge of a bridge into the icy water below.
  • This:
    Young Anastasia: Let me go! Please!
    Rasputin: You'll never escape me, child, never!
  • Then there's the spin-off movie Bartok The Magnificent. Especially since the main villainess has a potion that turns whoever drinks it into what they were like on the inside, when Ludmilla drinks it she turns into a dragoness of some kind.
    • The potion was supposed to turn whoever drinks it into a reflection of their personality. When the aforementioned villainess drank it...
      • She turns into a dragon. You know...she was an over-the-top diva.
  • There was a PC game where you played as Pooka, exploring Russia and helping out Anasastia and co. or random strangers; however, for a good chunk of time you're usually alone. This can be slightly off-putting to a young child, but by itself it's not too bad...until you search the wrong spot and trigger an unwelcome visit from a minion who teleports you to the Underworld. All you have to do to escape is win one of the minigames, but oftentimes there's absolutely no indication of what's safe and what's not. Bartok will warn you that there's a trap in the room you've entered...sometimes.
