** Jack describing himself as "a human trigger warning" is ''unbelievably'' chilling.


** Even his title card appearance is unsettling. Most rappers tend to act out in funny, outlandish, or cool ways in their title cards. All Freddy does however, is grind his index finger's blade against a piece of medal while keeping his face obscured from the camera...until the last moment, where he looks up and just stares at you.

** Then Logan [[AllJustADream wakes up in his room]] only to find out [[DreamWithinADream he’s still dreaming]]. Wolverine actively starts looking for Freddy as the Springwood Slasher surreptitiously appears in the background, just outside Logan’s field of vision (even [[MirrorMonster replacing Wolverine’s image in a mirror]]) before the battle ends with Freddy melding through the wall and looming over Wolverine a la his first movie. The only reprieve is that [[ImNotAfraidOfYou at no point does Wolverine let any of this faze him]].

* Mark Zuckerburg's portrayal is outright creepy with his eyes locked in a permanent, [[WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises wide-eyed]] ThousandYardStare and [[TranquilFury a rather soft-spoken, almost Kermit-like voice]]. Easily the most unnerving part of his rap is claiming to be the CEO of "KNOWING WHAT YOU THINK, INC." while three copies of him [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou stare right into the camera.]]

* Season 6 gives us the King of Nightmares himself, [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]]. Not only does he look [[BodyHorror absolutely terrifying]], but his very presence oozes fear with every lyric.
** He starts off chanting his signature IronicNurseryTune in a dark AbandonedPlayground (briefly interspersed with a shot of him charging at you in a dark hallway), and then [[SelfMutilationDemonstration chops off two of his own fingers and grows them back]] to demonstrate his toughness. He gets very few humorous lines, instead going straight to the violent threats against Wolverine.
** His second verse is even worse when he starts using his DreamWeaver powers. He does everything he can to disempower his enemy; from [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever growing to giant size]] to taking away Wolverine’s claws — his main line of defense — and replacing them with miniature versions of himself before [[MagnetismManipulation turning his arms into giant magnets]] [[YouWillNotEvadeMe to drag the adamantium-infused hero closer to him]]. It’s just unnerving to watch our hero completely at the mercy of such a monster.

** Furthermore, probably one of the most disturbing lines he has is "I'm owning this battle!/[[spoiler:In fact, I own this whole SERIES!!!]]" This has astounding implications since [[spoiler:Epic Rap Battles of History is sponsored through Maker Studios, who are, in turn, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. Even though this is a satire of Walt Disney and his company, Epic Lloyd and Nice Peter are, in fact, a part of this "Empire of Joy". [[GoMadFromTheRevelation And watching that video just benefited the Empire of Joy a little bit more]]...]]

* The sight of Dumbledore's scorched hand can be forever seared into your memory, especially for viewers who don't know Harry Potter.

** Epic Lloyd also duplicates Anthony Hopkins's performance perfectly -- particularly his [[KubrickStare unblinking gaze]].

Added DiffLines:

** At the announcement of the contestants, J. R. R. Tolkien is first missing from the foreground, then he appears with a little smile, waving a bit and putting something into his pocket. What is it? ''The One Ring''.


** Hillary Clinton makes some really unnerving faces, particularly during her verse when she starts attacking Donald for his offensive sexual comments and suddenly starts shouting. Even Lincoln commented on her creepy smile.

* "Donald Drumpf vs. Hillary Clinton":
** There's something somewhat disturbing about watching Donald Drumpf in the video, mostly because his lines seem [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain so ridiculously]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice mean]] [[DudeNotFunny spirited,]] and yet they also sound like something the real thing would ''actually'' say.
