Added DiffLines:

** That entire "ice horror museum" sequence is kind of creepy...especially the glossed over spacecraft and its unlucky inhabitants.


* The death of Manny's original family by humans in the cave painting. The paintings of the humans are scary too. Like real life cave art, they are just portrayed as black silohuettes without faces, which makes them look extremely unsettling as the animation for this segment is very dreamlike, making their movement look unnatural and skittish. Even their voices are just portrayed as high pitched yelling and chanting.

Even their voices are just portrayed as high pitched yelling and chanting. Extra disturbing since this is likely how Manny sees humans, or used to.
** If the paintings were human made, the killers of Manny's family detailed it unnervingly well and drew themselves in the aforementioned, indistinguishable creepy stick figures they believed animals saw them.
** If it's the work of an unseen anthropomorphic character, they've distressingly captured the misanthropic theme the sabers live by.

Added DiffLines:

* Manny's [[BerserkButton reaction]] to TheReveal of Diego's betrayal. He comes close to killing him right then and there.

-->'''Soto''': Alert the troops. We attack at dawn. And Diego, bring me that baby ''alive''. If I'm gonna enjoy my revenge, I want it to be fresh!
**After Diego's failure, Soto is furious but gives him another chance and pretty much threatens Diego if he fails again, he'll kill him.

[[AC:The Meltdown]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cretaceous1.png]]
* The introduction of Cretaceous and Maelstrom in ''The Meltdown''. Just a simple closeup on one of them frozen in the ice, the music builds, thenů[[EyeAwaken THOOM]]. Seriously freaky.
** Also considering that Cretaceous and Maelstrom don't speak and they look and act realistically, [[KnightOfCerebus they are very dark antagonists]].
** The director does a great job in [[ParanoiaFuel making the viewers expect the beasts to strike anytime]]. The young animal that is left behind and looks into the lake looks very much like a potential victim and... splash! [[spoiler:It was just Fast Eddie's glyptodon lackey scaring him senseless into leaving, and then while he swims carefreely it comes as no surprise that the snorkel gets dragged down and the glyptodon gets [[EatenAlive consumed alive]].

* The looming threat that Rudy poses for the entirety of ''Dawn of the Dinosaurs'', who makes even Mama cower in terror.
** When his shadow appears over the cave that Mama, the babies, and Sid are bedding down in, no less than a minute after they've taken shelter there.

** For a particularly horrifying example, the Siren that lures [[spoiler:Captain Gutt]] to his doom. Her form flickers just as mentioned above, but ends up as a horrifying merger of her Siren face and her illusion face. The end result is [[http://iceage.wikia.com/wiki/File:Siren_Kong_evil.jpg terrifying]].
* Captain Gutt in general:
** His dangerously sharp claws.
-->'''Manny''': I have a little paunch too but I wouldn't name myself after it. \\
'''Gutt''' (''laughs mockingly''): Very funny. But that's not how I got my name. (''brandishes claws'') ''These'' got me my name.
*** Gutt then demonstrates on Sid how he used his claws to obtain his name: with the use of his sharpened claws, Gutt would eviscerate other creatures, demonstrating it on Sid without harming him.
-->'''Gutt''': I just gently press here... and go down like this....\\
'''Squint''': And then your innards become your ''outards''! (laughs)
** The way he suddenly appears from the fog and [[spoiler: grabs Peaches, ''holding a dagger near her neck!'']]
-->'''Gutt''': Welcome home, Daddy!\\
'''Peaches''': LET GO OF ME!!
** And the fact that he was [[MoralEventHorizon perfectly willing to]] [[spoiler: kill Manny's family]] just to get back at him. And if it weren't for [[spoiler:[[BigDamnHeroes Louis]]]], Gutt [[NearVillainVictory would've won right there]]!
-->'''Manny''': Alright. Let them go!\\
'''Gutt''' (''[[EvilLaugh chuckles darkly]]''): I don't think so. You destroyed ''everything I had''. I'm just ''returning the favor.''\\
'''Manny''': [[BigNO NO!!!!]] (''tries to charge at Gutt, but the crew rapidly lassoes him.'')\\
'''Gutt''': I warned you...
** During his final battle with Manny, Gutt swings his sword at the mammoth, ''barely missing his [[EyeScream eye.]]''
** Gutt might be [[SequelEscalation even more evil and threatening]] than ''Soto''!
