Nightmare Fuel / Tarzan

  • Sabor. She actually grins at one point, making her all the more creepy. Cats Are Mean Up to Eleven.
    • While the film doesn't show Sabor doing the deed, in a rather chilling alternate opening (illustrated only by storyboards) on the DVD and Blu-ray, we actually do get to see Sabor attack and kill Tarzan's father, though only through flashes illuminated by lightning strikes. The scene ends with Sabor dragging his body offscreen to feed.
      • What we do get to see in the finished product is Sabor's pawprints, tainted with the blood of Tarzan's parents, overlaid with her snarls. If you pay close enough attention, you can see his parents' corpses in the background.
  • When Kerchak gives his enraged roar, you'll jump in your seat- especially when you see him arguing with Kala about her taking the infant Tarzan in (Which terrifies him and causes him to cry), and when he attacks the humans for playing with the gorilla babies.
  • Clayton's death. To cut a long story short— in a frenzied attempt to attack Tarzan with his machete, he gets himself tangled up in jungle vines, not noticing until too late that one is coiling around his neck as he slashes away at them. Eventually, he cuts away the last one holding him up, causing him to plummet a huge distance from the tree the two were standing on— but with one vine still around his neck and strangling him as evidenced by him desperately clawing at his throat and his eyes bulging out madly as he falls. It then suddenly cuts to the vine stretching taut with a sickening crunch, Tarzan and Clayton's machete dropping to the ground, and then lightning illuminates the cliff face behind them to reveal the shadow of Clayton's dangling corpse behind him.
    • There's a reason that this scene provides the picture for the Film page of Family-Unfriendly Death. Clayton literally ended up hanging himself in jungle vines.
  • Kerchak and Kala had to hear their son being eaten alive. Doubles as a massive Tear Jerker.
  • A good number of the Game Over sequences in the video game are rather chilling, especially the ones where Tarzan is still a kid. A compilation is right here.
