YMMV / The Greatest Adventure: Stories from the Bible
Animation Age Ghetto: This series arguably subverts it in spades by keeping true to the original stories as much as possible. One example is David's fight with Goliath in the episode bearing their names.
The Angel of Death in the Moses episode, portrayed very ominously as a thick black cloud that gradually envelops most of the screen. The music doesn't help.
King Herod in the Nativity episode only appears for a few scenes, but is terrifying enough since he's voiced by Vincent Price. Then the Roman soldiers report back to him near the end of the movie, prompting him to make a Nightmare Face as a Scare Chord plays. Then the camera zooms in until all you can see is said face.
