[[caption-width-right:280: Somehow, the censors thought this was less horrific than a dagger in his sleep.]]
* Broadway becomes absolutely ''terrifying'' in "Deadly Force" after he becomes traumatized from accidentally shooting Elisa. Who knew the guy who voiced Patrick Star could use practically the same voice and ''still be scary?''
--> '''Broadway:''' (Tackles and grabs a mugger armed with a high-tech gun) ''What's this!? A new kind of gun? A NEW WAY TO KILL PEOPLE!?'' (crushes gun with his bare hands) ''WHERE DID YOU GET THIS!? WHO GAVE IT TO YOU!?''
** The doctor's matter of fact description of exactly what the bullet ''did'' to Elisa is also nightmare inducing.
* The Hotel Cabal episode, which ends with Mace Malone frantically trying to find an exit to the sealed maze of traps, all of which are designed to drive the prisoner insane. WordOfGod is he eventually died of dehydration.
* Demona happily destroying human statues in "City of Stone" -- especially when she only destroyed the ''arms'' of one.
** The 11th Century flashbacks, in which Demona becomes gaunt and aged, make her look more like a vampire than a gargoyle: And she's quite enthusiastic with that spiked mace of hers.
** In the same episodes, King Duncan's demise. He attempts to strike down his cousin Macbeth, who reveals a strange orb given to him by the Weird Sisters. As soon as Duncan's sword shatters it, he is engulfed in magical energy, and otherworldly light erupts from his eyes and mouth, torching him from the inside, accompanied by an anguished shriek. Finally we see his flaming corpse, eyes and tongue burned out of his head, fall out of frame as it tumbles down a cliff. Just... YEESH.
* The Xanatos Goon Squad in "Monsters" being dragged down in their submarine to a watery grave by some very angry plesiosaurs.
* Jackal in "The Green" fantasizing about smashing stone Gargoyles by day. Frightening enough as it is, but then he whips out a chisel and carves Goliath's face to look like his.
** His entire killing spree in ''Grief.'' How bad is it? He starts small -- a tree withers away, a couple of machines are turned to scrap metal, and a pair of Nile crocodiles are reduced to skeletons. The last thing we see him do? He lays waste to an entire thriving ''city!''
* The whole concept of [[EvilTwin Thailog,]] [[FridgeLogic once you think about it.]] The guy has Goliath's strength, wordy knowledge, and combat skill, coupled with the knowledge and manipulative genius of Xanatos, and the scientific knowledge and goofiness of Sevarius, but without a trace of any kind of morality.
-->'''Xanatos:''' [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Owen... I think I created a monster...]]
* [[BodyHorror Demona's transformations]] from gargoyle to human and vice versa.
* The werefox, to say nothing of Fox's transformation, especially when she's reaching out to Xanatos and ''screaming'' before the beast takes over.
* The episode that first introduced Coyote was often skipped in syndication, [[spoiler: probably because of the scene in which Bronx knocks Coyote to the deck and mauls his head. It just barely gets past the radar due to Coyote being a machine, but it's still rather brutal -- and a first-time viewer would probably still assume that Xanatos was the guy in the armor.]]
** [[spoiler:Mind you, his face post-mauling (half 'human', half robotic skull with a giant glaring eye) is still pretty much NightmareFuel on its own]].
** And then [[spoiler:he returns in "Upgrade". And the same half-mauled robotic head ends up being ''crushed'' by Goliath. Just in case you forgot how dangerous the leader of the Manhattan Clan is when ''really'' angry]].
* The gang's fates in "Future Tense." [[spoiler: Broadway gets blinded in a fight before being shot dead while Bluestone, Bronx, Claw, Angela, Brooklyn, and Demona are all vaporized on-screen. Xanatos also [[OffingTheOffspring kills his own son]] with a smile on his face.]]
** Lexington's mentality [[spoiler: when he turned out to be the villain behind it all. His reaction to Goliath's return was seemingly lukewarm in contrast to Brooklyn's anger and Broadway's benevolence. Upon exposing his megalomaniacal goals, it was revealed that his hatred of Goliath's forty-year departure and the resulting aftermath had driven him completely insane.]]
* The ''Goliath Chronicles'' episode "Genesis Undone" stands out as rather horrifying. The deterioration of the Manhattan clan clones is unsettling to say the least. We then get to watch as they all ([[spoiler: including Thailog]]) writhe in agony before turning to stone, at ''night.''
