Nightmare Fuel: This Is It
  • All the faces silently screaming in Bad Things That Could Happen, including the wall that gets a nail through it, the mouth that loses two teeth, and the matchbox lit on fire.
    • The mouse that gets caught in a trap - and its head gets split in two. As in, half of its head falls off.
  • Don't Hug Me I'm Scared and the creativity explosion. Cake full of body parts, anyone?
  • The sequel has the scene where everyone starts rotting alive.
  • The Kickstarter videos. First, there's the entire premise of the puppets being kidnapped and held hostage, which several people have criticized for crossing a line into legitimately traumatic territory. Then, in "HELP #2", there's Yellow Thing having a bag put on his head and yelling, "No, I don't want it!" It's very unsettling, especially since Yellow Thing is crying while he's talking.
    • There's also a split-second shot of Sketchbook's face on the floor. Just their face, not the rest of them. They could be dead... or alternatively, they could be still alive, but faceless.

Also, Yellow Puppet is forced to marry his 'special one' against his will. Extra points goes to the strange maggot-like creature that pops out of the egg at the end of the video, which is also smashed by Robin.
    • Said strange maggot like creature? If you look carefully, it's a caterpillar, with the same colouring and hair as the Yellow Puppet. Consider that the last moment of the "dream sequence" was Shrignold flying with a ring towards him and, well...
    • Tony's and Notepad's cameos when the cult reveals its true face. If you notice, Tony's eyes are blank and his trim is white instead of black, while Sketchbook's eyes are googly. This seems to suggest that they were brainwashed...
    • The aftermath of the raw chicken and bloody egg picnic, Robin reminding everyone that they've finished it, and then staring intently into the camera for an uncomfortably long time. It's just
