!!The Filmation cartoon
* Some of the animation for the monsters, as well as the monsters themselves.
* The starving, emaciated prisoners in Ming's mines who are explicitly stated to be blind from radiation poisoning.

!!1980 film:
* For as campy and entertaining as it is, the [[MindWipe Memory Eraser]] scene is surprisingly intense.
* Some of the AliensAndMonsters (and their strange clothes) could qualify.
* The scene with the Wood Beast is genuinely [[NothingIsScarier tense]], especially after Barin performs a MercyKill on a young man (barely out of teenage) after he's bitten.
* Klytus' death, complete with bulging eyes and tongue. {{Squick}}.
* Barin grabs a visor off of a mook, realizing too late that the thing is wired directly into the poor guy's brain via his eye sockets. Cue the mook's agonized death cry and Barin's {{Squick}} reaction.
* The bore worms. They're never shown on screen; all we get is Aura's panic when Ming orders Klytus to use them on her. But that, combined with the name BORE WORMS suggests something outrageously nasty.

!! The comic
* A lot of what Queen Azura does to Flash; she brainwashes him continuously via a magic drug, which has the added effect of giving him nightmares.
