[[AC:Regular Episodes]]
* The ending to the episode with Ed's scam reveals that it's a curse he had read about in a comic book in the start of the episode, and even worse? ''IT WORKS''!
-->'''Ed:''' (''as the Eds get swarmed by angry crows'') Evil Tim has beckoned them!\\
'''Edd and Eddy:''' [[TheScream AAAAAAAH!]]
* Ed's NightmareSequence at the beginning of "Rock-A-Bye Ed".
** After Mom!Jonny [[WipeThatSmileOffYourFace tears Ed's mouth off]] and sends him down into the "Kanker pit", Ed ''[[BodyHorror tears open a new mouth to scream!]]''
* Some scenes from [[BizarroEpisode "1+1=Ed"]].
** Jimmy [[BodyHorror melting]].
* Edd [[BreakTheCutie going insane]] from not taking a shower in "Cleanliness Is Next to Ed-ness".
-->'''Edd:''' May I use ''your'' shower? ''(makes a rotten smile)''
* The insect hunting scene in "Nagged To Ed", especially when Ed gets stuck on the giant spider web...
-->'''Ed:''' Help me guys! I don't want the fluids drained from my body!
** The scene where it looks like three monsters (they're really the Kanker sisters) are after them and the Eds scream and the picture's colors invert.
* The Halloween Special has elements of this. Heck, the INTRO is what should prepare you for some SCARY content. Check out whenever Ed pictures the kids as monsters. WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THOSE EYES?! Also, the screen becomes...I don't know. See for yourself. Here are the monsters as follows:
** The Kanker Sisters are witches that Ed thinks caused the monster apocalypse and they create a brew that shoots up into the sky and even the smoke tries to get Ed!
** Jimmy is a freaky looking alien that, for his troubles, is crushed by Ed via a stop sign. Played for laughs, but still.
** Sarah is a pretty terrifying vampire that seems to have literally come out of Hell (just look at the flames!).
** Nazz is a Gorgon sporting a [[NightmareFace nasty look]].
** Kevin is only a head being utilized by a really intimidating [[HeadlessHorseman Headless Horseman]].
** Rolf is an ogre whose design is a real piece of work. The pig looks EVEN WORSE! Also, his defeat is a really painful [[EyeScream eye impalement.]] Also, what was he saying exactly?!
** Jonny is a hideous spider that would make Shelob blush. Although from what Ed says, giant spider monsters like Jonny are NotEvilJustMisunderstood, which might soften the blow a little.
** Plank is a Frankenstein's Monster {{expy}} (though his design could be considered goofy and his defeat is awesome/funny).
** In the end, the monsters (really mad kids, actually), sans the witches, converge on the Eds. OH, THE HUMANITY!!!
** Really, Ed in this. He's so disconnected from reality from all those horror movies that he can't discern the people around him (aside from his 2 pals, obviously) from abominations from the bowels of Hell or just being in ordinary costumes. The ending even shows he's now apathetic to his friend's pain!
** And to end it all, the reel behind the special dies, while Eddy and Edd are beaten senseless...
* "The Eds are Coming" is ''definitely'' DarkerAndEdgier.
** When Jimmy's dream becomes a Nightmare. Good god, it is SCARY!
** The scene with Edd in Ed's room. It's the show's only attempt at NothingIsScarier.
** [[GainaxEnding The ending]]. Oh my goodness, [[OrWasItADream the ending]].
** Normally, the show's characters and moving elements of the cartoon (so basically everything but the background) is animated with a technique called "Squigglevision" which helps give the characters a loose, almost whimsical feel. However, in the dream sequence intro, notice that the huge alien blades are NOT animated with this technique. The stark contrast between the show's usual animation and this episode is very...unsettling.
** Really, no mention of the sound in this episode? While Patric's freeform jazz score is present, the vast majority of the episode's music ranges from tense to downright horrifying. When the aliens capture the Cul-De-Sac in Jimmy's dream, the only music is an intense drumbeat. Not to mention the sound effect associated with the aliens played throughout the episode (when the lights turn on in Rolf's house, the meteorite, Ed's room, etc.) sounds straight out of Silent Hill. At least, the closest thing this show would get to Silent Hill...
* Eddy goes insane in several episodes in the series, most notably "Laugh Ed Laugh", "Who Let the Ed In", and "Take This Ed and Shove It", and it's uncomfortable to watch. Eddy punching himself and hitting his head on a tree in "Who Let the Ed In" and Eddy constantly hitting himself with his cane in "Take This Ed and Shove It" are disturbing examples.
* A scene from "Urban Ed" where Jimmy is making is way around the cardboard people in the Eds' mock city, all while hearing the "people" laugh at him. It's an oddly dark scene in an otherwise lighthearted episode.
** Becomes AdultFear once you realize kids in real life can go through that situation if they're not careful.
* Sarah herself is pretty scary especially when she's pissed. Even though she looks like a normal innocent little girl and surprisingly submissive if confronted by someone who she doesn't expect will like Ed or Jimmy, she's really a walking, talking nightmare who's not afraid to kill a person out of anger.
** Such examples include "Quick Shot Ed" where the Eds scare Jimmy after taking his picture and her response is to become angry, yell "Eat doll!" and throw anything and everything at the Eds, including a ''dollhouse'' at Double D (which remains on his head for several scenes) and in "Brother, Can You Spare an Ed?" when after learning that Ed had spent money she gave him to buy her and Jimmy fudge on jawbreakers after being goaded into it by [[{{Jerkass}} Eddy]], her first instinct was to get mad and pounce on her brother to, well, [[FridgeHorror use your imagination.]] Luckily, Double D was there to stop her, especially how Ed ''knew'' what was coming otherwise. To put it into further perspective, Ed is a badass who's impervious to pain and has super strength, yet what does he do in response to [[EnfantTerrible Sarah?]] ''Cower and scream at the top of his lungs.''
* After Ed accidentally lets Edd's ants loose in "Stop, Look and Ed", Edd starts choking him with his legs. It's pretty uncomfortable to watch, especially seeing Ed trying to apologize to Edd during his "punishment".
* Eddy [[GoMadFromTheIsolation going crazy]] in "Laugh Ed Laugh" is surprisingly creepy. He does all kinds of wild things, like making a turbin out of his own tongue, eating acorns, fences, and fire hydrants, and believing that a mailbox is his own house.
** There is even a scene in the episode where it shows his brain explode.
*** '''''Into popcorn.'''''
* Ed going [[UnstoppableRage absolutely berserk]] in "Little Ed Blue", it's essentially a person acting like a wild animal while still mentally and physically human.
** Sarah was afraid of him, to put things into perspective.
** His NightmareFace, pictured above. [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BrMI_8sCUAA6F5l.jpg That is all.]]
** How about when he [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/3OciaCsRryE/hqdefault.jpg rips his eyebrow in half?]]
* The end of "Take This Ed and Shove It." Even worse, it was supposed to be the last episode.
* "The Day The Ed Stood Still" has Ed wearing a monster suit and became one with it, not just act, but '''become''' the monster.
** Why it's so scary is for a long time, [[NothingIsScarier you don't see what the monster looks like.]] You just see the cul de sac kids grow more and more horrified, and slowly the monster gets them, '''One By One..'''
* Any of Ed's [[BodyHorror allergic reactions]].
** "FISH FACE!"
* When the Eds get trapped in a haunted house in "Honor Thy Ed" and fall into a GambitRoulette set up by the Kanker sisters, culminating in the Eds being forced to marry them.
** The whole "tunnel of love" scene is pretty disturbing. Especially since the Eds are mysteriously stripped naked halfway through it.
* Double D appearing as a "mole-mutant" in "Boom Boom Out Goes The Ed", especially when you consider how Rolf and Kevin managed to get out of the sewers unscathed.
** When Ed lights up his head with a flashlight, instead of a skull, we see a toast with holes for eye-sockets and melted butter smushed into the center. Now consider that [[FridgeHorror Ed's favorite food is buttered toast]]...
* Ed's story in "Once Upon An Ed" where the Kanker Sisters eat radioactive mashed potatoes and turn into gigantic monstrous versions of themselves and chase the Eds; especially the part where they combine their faces and make this UncannyValley looking face. Even Eddy pointed out how surreal Ed's story was becoming.
-->'''Eddy''': [[NoFourthWall Ed, your story's]] [[LampshadeHanging getting weird!]]
* The a.k.a. Cartoon logo that appears at the end of every episode. Probably one of the reasons why kids never watched the full end credits.
** For those who don't know about this, it's basically a drawing of a person getting impaled by a giant pencil, causing his [[EyeScream eyeballs]] to pop out... and there's a few droplets of what looks like ''BLOOD'' flying from the wound.
** Specifically in the first season, where the color combination and larger size made the guy a lot more visible.
*** Even worse is the version on the HalloweenEpisode, where the screen is splattered with gore. [[FridgeHorror And since the guy is being impaled by the pencil...]]
* The scene in "Out with the Old, in with the Ed," in which the Kankers send the Eds to their new "homeroom." While May and Marie give their usual flood of kisses to Ed and Edd, who are too afraid/weak to fight back, what happens to Eddy before he gets his usual act is...really unnerving.
-->'''Eddy:''' Ok, THAT'S IT! I'm telling the teacher on you (Lee dressed as a teacher)! *Raises hand*
-->'''Lee:''' *Bends down to Eddy's face* I'm all ears, ''my little teacher's pet!'' *Laughs and pushes him into the stall for kissing*
** Before that, when the kids realize school starts tomorrow and none of them are prepared, they decide to steal all of Edd's supplies. ''By chopping down his door with an axe.''
* There's something...unsettling about the scene in "Brother Can You Spare an Ed," where Ed is looking back and forth between the Jawbreakers he wants and the fudge Sarah asked him to get for her and Jimmy. Every time Ed looks at the Fudge you can hear what sounds like jeering laughter, and Ed looks like he's about to have a mental breakdown and even starts physically shaking... Just what was going through the poor guy's head?
* The Kanker sisters in general, which also counts as an In-universe example for every other character on the show. Despite being PlayedForLaughs, most of their antics are quite disturbing since most scenes involving them have them torture and/or [[BlackComedyRape rape]] the other kids, especially the Eds, in unsettling and odd ways. Whenever they show up, it won't end well for them.
** "We know where you live!"
** "A Twist of Ed" showed that they have no problem invading the Eds' houses. Lee even makes her move on Eddy while he was taking a shower (thankfully, he still had his [=PJs=] on.)
** Then there's the implication that they don't truly love the Eds, and that they only want men to push around and do their chores for them while they goof off.
* The ending of "Tight End Ed". The fact that Eddy is kidnapped by the rival team makes the ending a bit serious.
** Ed had a chance to save him, but had no idea he was in danger and just watched the bus drive away. Eddy actually ''cries'' when it looks Ed is going to save him.
* Rolf's SanitySlippage in "No Speak Da Ed".
* In "An Ed in the Bush", Rolf does something unspeakably traumatizing to the Eds that it causes them to hide in Ed's basement ''for three whole days'' in fear of the "Belly-Button Eater".
* The cafeteria scene in "Smile For the Ed". The kids reach a whole new level of cruelty as they psychologically torture a kid, driving Eddy into having an honest to god ''panic attack''.
* "Look Into My Eds" ends with the Kankers making the Eds think they're dogs. It's rather disconcerting.
* "Run Ed Run", which is a very surreal episode to begin with, similar to season 2's "1+1=Ed". For some odd reason, despite taking place during a field trip to the Jawbreaker factory, the only kids present on the schoolbus, aside from the Ed's, is Jimmy, Sarah and Jonny, making the whole episode seem oddly desolate. The plot itself revolves around Sarah tricking Ed into thinking that the sky is falling, due to a feud between her and Eddy about who gets to sit at the front of the bus and get first crack at the jawbreakers. It results in [[MindScrew the Ed's somehow slamming into the sky, and breaking off a large chunk]], with the area behind the sky is shown as television static. Ed spends the end of the episode running around trying to tape the pieces of the sky back together whilst Double D [[MoodWhiplash gushes over what an amazing scientific discovery it is]].
** Sarah being [[BodyHorror stuffed full of jawbreakers at the end]].
* From "Knock Knock, Who's Ed", Ed doesn't taken kindly to Eddy interrupting him when they finally find a TV on which to watch the ''Hot Rod Cyclops'' movie marathon: [[http://orig04.deviantart.net/9a7a/f/2014/122/0/a/movie_good_for_ed_________by_ultimatejkc1994-d7gt6fz.jpg "MOVIE GOOD FOR ED!"]]
* Small potatoes compared to most of the other examples on this list, but Rolf ''[[EyeScream squeezing lemon juice into his eyes]]'' so that he can see the Cupids that are going around and making people fall in love. The very lovingly detailed shot of his eyes slowly burning red afterward is enough to make your own eyes burn with sympathy.
* In "Fool on the Ed" there's a part where the kids are laughing at the Eds. Jonny's face during this just looks really[[https://youtu.be/MFRz4v6hVus?t=7m30s ...off.]]
* Rolf's self-induced EyeScream in the Valentine's Day special. He squirts lemon halves into his own eyes in order to [[ItMakesSenseInContext see the cupid versions of Sarah and Jimmy,]] and spends the rest of the episode with grotesquely irritated (and unusually detailed) eyes.
* "Dueling Eds", natch. ''Especially'' the ending. Rolf forces Eddy to fight him after the latter disrespected him by throwing some ForeignQueasine that he had more or less forced all the neighborhood kids to eat. After failing to convince him to call the duel off, Eddy and Rolf engage in a CurbStompBattle of the latter whaling on the former with a giant fish. Even worse, not only [[EmpathicEnvironment does the sky suddenly becomes dark and omnious during the fight]], but Eddy is seen beaten up in very disturbingly graphic way complete with some blood and ''teeth'' flying out of his mouth and then he's finished by being "sent off" into the abyss. After the fight, he (and the other Eds for no reason whatsoever) are given the "Eels of Forgiveness" by [[{{Jerkass}} Rolf]]. Ed unfortunately is allergic to them, which causes him to [[BodyHorror grow into a giant half-boy, half-fish monstrosity]] and the sight causes Double D to freak out and promptly [[FridgeHorror pass out in terror,]] and unlike the "Flea-Bitten Ed" episode with his bunny allergy, Double D's fainting alone shows that his eel allergy ''isn't'' PlayedForLaughs.
* "A Fistful of Ed": "Don't taunt the D, Eddy. [[ThousandYardStare I was there.]]"
** Rolf's X-ray shows that Edd accidentally ''cracked his skull open.''
