** But the most terrifying thing in the chapter is TheReveal confirming that [[spoiler:the first Noah actually being those who repopulated the human race after the Great Flood, ''every single human being'' can potentially be a vessel for any of the Noah to reincarnate themselves.]] ParanoiaFuel much?
** You thought he looked too cartoony to be scary? Take a '''good fucking look''' at [[http://www.mangareader.net/210-15225-12/dgray-man/chapter-134.html this smile]]. The SlasherSmile that the Earl always sports, coupled with his ScaryShinyGlasses, and the fact that in some panels, he is depicted with slitted pupils and ''scaly, wrinkled skin'', only add to the terror. And before that was a brief but terrifying scene where the Earl [[http://www.mangareader.net/210-15179-13/dgray-man/chapter-88.html menaces Lenalee]]. He suddenly becomes much freakier than usual.

* Also, Suman Dark. Suman [[spoiler:betrays the Black Order]] and turns into a giant-blue-human-torso-with-a-halo-thing. He is trapped in it, kind of. Allen tries to rescue him and talk with him, failing, 'cause apparently Suman has turned in to a white zombie who only yells, cries blood and spits blood.

* And remember when Allen's arm was all flaked and looked like it was about to fall off? Then Tyki [[spoiler: ripped it off and then had his Teez eat a hole in Allen's ''heart''?]] This is a almost payback for Tyki's BodyHorror infliction on Allen: He transforms [[NightmareFuel rather gruesomely]] into a demonic knight thing that turned the BlackKnight scary again. He now uses weird energy circle things to basically trounce his enemies left and right. It also seems to [[FingerLickinEvil have a taste for blood]].

* The final (for now) results of Akuma evolution. Level One: Giant orb covered in cannons with a human face down the centerline. Level Two: Massive animalistic form, with abilities and design unique to each Akuma. Level Three: Always an armoured figure, with individual variations only manifesting as differing numbers of eyes and unique abilities. Level Three Point Five: A giant, lanky hermaphroditic humanoid roughly the size of Godzilla, made by combining thousands of Level Two and Three Akuma. [[spoiler:Level Four: The deadliest Akuma form yet, resembles a naked pot-bellied four-foot tall hermaphroditic ball-socket-doll-like tattooed haloed cherubim, which is capable of batting aside five Critical-level Exorcists (that is to say, the Generals and Allen, the most powerful exorcists alive), without breaking a sweat.]]
* Road Kamelot. She sings haunting nursery rhymes about killing people, [[EnfanteTerrible acts like an excited child]], and [[MindRape messes with your mind to turn you insane]]. She likes the taste of blood, and often cracks into [[LaughingMad hysterical laughter]] when maiming people. Also, as well as possessing a number of {{creepy doll}}s, she herself can transform into one. And she has a crush on the main character, which she expresses by, within an hour of each other, a) glomping and kissing him and b) trying to force him to kill his friends. She even professed her love to Allen not long after [[EyeScream stabbing him through his eye]] with a sharpened candle and [[FingerLickinEvil licking off the blood]]. And if ALL THAT wasn't enough it gets even creepier due to the fact that she is immortal so she has in fact looked twelve years old for the past thirty-five years, which means that she's [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld biologically at least forty-seven years old]] and Allen is fifteen.

* Skulls. They may not seem too scary at first seeing as they look like fat humanoids with a somewhat goofy looking skull for a head, and when they first appear in the ark Cross has killed a whole room full of them and throws the only survivor into the force field surrounding the Akuma egg. But the way they are made and what there are is scary to think about.

A Skull examines them one by one to see who has a "good brain." Any who don't (which is most of them) get marked with an X and have their head crushed by one of the level 3.

A few seconds later a new Skull emerges with no memory of who it once was.]] To add to the horror, all Skulls look exactly the same regardless of what they looked like before... [[spoiler:some Skulls could be CHILDREN!]]

** The Fourteenth yet again in chapter 198 [[spoiler: as he starts to fully awaken, thanks to Kanda stabbing Allen while he (Kanda) was in a berserk rage. NOTHING is creepier than seeing the awakening Fourteenth floating amid shadows, making the very ground rumble with insane laughter, all while wearing a terrifying SlasherSmile and his [[GlowingEyesOfDoom Glowing Right Eye of Doom]].]]
* Alma Karma. Especially in chapter 193. [[spoiler:That's one ''hell'' of a body count for a ([[BreakTheCutie formerly]]) CheerfulChild with a HolyHandGrenade. He ripped his way through most of the Black Order employees in the East Branch, as well as the other lab-grown children, with an attempt to do the same to his friend Kanda. And he was trying to kill himself, too, but his HealingFactor kept closing the wounds when he ripped a huge hole in his body...]] And all [[DissonantSerenity with a calm smile on his face]].

[[spoiler:If they're injured beyond their ability to continue fighting, one of the others will ''absorb'' them so that the "Alma cells" that went into making them aren't wasted.]] Eventually, the surviving ones will be used the same way Alma Karma is- [[spoiler:as an incubator to provide material to hybridize more people into half-Akuma.]]

** One of the most horrifying questions is how long Kanda and Alma were fighting for [[spoiler:after Alma had killed everyone?]] We know that they can each regenerate dozens if not hundreds of times, so the question is how many times did he slice him up before he put him down for good? For all we know he could have been down there for days...
* Chapter 194. Five words: [[spoiler: Alma turning into an Akuma]].
* Chapter 195. Aside from the nauseating and sleep-depriving imagery, there's plenty of circumstances that make this worse. [[spoiler:These guys had submitted to being guinea pigs to try to help the Exorcists fight Akuma in any way they could. And now they're [[TranshumanTreachery being compelled to attack them against their will]], while the Exorcists are faced with killing their allies or dying horribly.]] And [[BreakTheCutie poor, poor Allen]] is experiencing an entirely new level of pain in all this: [[spoiler:He's an AllLovingHero. He wants to save ''everyone''. He won't hurt humans, ever. And now all of a sudden his EmpathicWeapon is going berserk and trying to kill the guy he showed up to rescue, who's begging for Allen not to hurt him. Just after he failed to protect a ton of his civilian friends from Alma Karma. And when Allen manages to suppress Crown Clown, he gets thrown around like a ragdoll.]]
** Watching the horrifically mutated Tokusa lose all composure and start desperately screaming for Madarao to come and "save" him is upsetting in itself. The Earl sweetly telling him that it's no use, that Madarao and the others are going to suffer the same fate and that, best of all, the one to kill them will be ''Allen'' is downright disturbing!
** Allen was seriously considering [[spoiler:''joining the Earl'']] to get him to stop it.
** In chapter 198, in the pages directly after the Millennium Earl's terrifying {{technically a smile}}.[[spoiler:So let's forget the fact that Allen is being taunted by the Noah in his head. Let's overlook the chains binding him to a throne, completely helpless to do anything. Let's blank out the frankly terrifying landscape. Instead, let's take a very close look at the 14th himself. He's wearing Allen's clothes. When we look at his face, it's actually quite young... like Allen. Even his hair is rather similar to Allen's. The noticeable differences are skin colour, hair colour and the lack of a cursed eye and scar. Even without taking into consideration the implications of the 14th's speech, what does this tell you?

** How he creates the Akumas. It's a DealWithTheDevil that no one benefits from except himself. First, he finds a poor sap desperate to bring a loved one back from the dead. He presents them with a metal skeleton that the soul of that loved one can inhabit if the person calls out their name. And it works! But before the person can even enjoy being reunited with their loved one, the skeleton immediately falls under the Earl's control and is ''forced to kill the person who brought them back'' '''''and wear their body like a suit'''''.

* Let's take a moment to look at the souls of the Akuma, which we get a glimpse of through Allen's "cursed" eye. Level 1 Akuma's souls generally have the poor sod looking like a shriveled up corpse wrapped in chains. Level 2 Akuma are degraded, looking like mummies. And with Level 3, there's hardly much of a soul left in the Akuma's body. [[spoiler:We don't get a glimpse of what the soul's condition is in a Level 4 Akuma, but when Allen saw it, he ''puked all over himself'' and damn nearing went into a HeroicBSOD. Whatever's left of the Level 4 Akuma's soul, if there even is one left, it's been degraded to the point where even our AllLovingHero was scared shitless]]. Let's be thankful we don't actually see what Allen did.

[[spoiler:The poor kid was a victim of violent physical and psychological abuse for years, at the hands of a particular clown, in the circus where he used to live. Worse, his interractions with the director heavily implies the man was a sexual predator, and had his sights on Allen, with the poor boy being seemingly aware of it and understandably freaking out completely.]] Hopefully nothing had been done to him until he left with [[spoiler:Mana]], but as of now we can't be certain, [[RapeAsBackstory and the implications are absolutely horrifying for [[spoiler:Allen]].]]

* Cross's ''"Oh, I'm sorry, did you only see one shot?"'' incident. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome So awesome it hurts, yes]], and yes, the [[UncannyValley freaky]] little bastard deserved it. But it also happens to result in [[http://www.mangareader.net/210-15246-10/dgray-man/chapter-155.html this]]. BodyHorror much?
