* The intro to Jon's ''Film/ATalkingCat'' review starts off startling for viewers not expecting it, with the phone that Jon picks up (which looks like ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}) [[HellIsThatNoise screaming into Jon's ear and then a quick shot to the telephone's eyes jittering while an unnerving sound plays in the background]]. Jon proclaims that he forgot that it was part of the rest of the phone’s body and quickly puts it back. It doesn't help that, just a few seconds later, there's ANOTHER screamer with the infamous Talking Tom app.

** The video also ends with the ''Tale of the Dark Music'' episode's conclusion, and the [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn of the protagonist seemingly ready to sacrifice his sister for wealth after accidentally feeding his brutal bully to the monster in the basement]]. Jon's reaction is one of genuine horror.

Jon's reaction is one of genuine horror.


* The "Grimbo" scene from the first part of ''Food Games''. Jon forces a [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Gollum]]-like creature, named Grimbo, to fetch him a Filet O' Fish. Grimbo attempts to "curse" him with a flickering wand. Jon reprimands him for it and he gets the sandwich for him, and then hisses at him. Jon then states he "will live another day" because of this. Then, as soon as he takes the sandwich of the box and takes a bite, he realizes he blacked out and ''imagined the whole scene''. Then, In part 2, Grimbo drank Pepsi until he died from it.

** There's a brief gag where Jon [[CrossesTheLineTwice slits his wrist]], which is not only incredibly dark, but the effect is a bit [[Squick too realistic.]]

* "Disney Bootlegs" is probably the scariest Jontron episode yet. It's an episode straight out of''WebVideo/DontHugMeImScared''[='=]s book. BodyHorror, SurrealHorror, and NauseaFuel are ''rampant'' throughout.

* In Part 2 of ''Food Games'', we get the Kool-Aid Boy. Also qualifies as NauseaFuel. For those who haven't seen it, he comes in and, when offering Jon some Kool-Aid, tells him to punch him in the liver. He does — [[RapidFireFisticuffs quite a lot]], which causes the Boy to almost realistically puke Kool-Aid in front of the camera. Then he tells Jon he only meant once.

** ''Lion King 5''[='=]s ridiculously horrific and childhood-ruining GameOver sequences, which feature Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa all '''[[DrivenToSuicide committing suicide]]'''. Timon and Pumbaa's suicides are distressing (Timon buries himself alive, Pumbaa jumps into a boiling cauldron) but nevertheless pale in comparison to Simba's, in which he fucking '''''hangs himself'''''. Jon does [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gY9tfRPoGfw lighten the mood a bit]] the first time this is shown, but still. However, he manages to give us an image that's even scarier: '''him hanging''' (see page image).

* Jon went into the state of madness, all wrapped in Flex Tape sans his face in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07KFq7EqkPw stinger]] of his "Waterproofing My Life with FLEX TAPE" video. Thanks to [[SugarWikiHeReallyCanAct Jon's own acting staple]], it managed to look as horrifying as it's funny.
