* [=LeChuck=]'s general appearance. As a ghost in the first game he was bad enough. As a zombie, he's absolutely ''terrifying''.


* LeChuck tears [[spoiler: Fester Shinetop]] to shreds when he reveals his true form. The special edition obscures some of the gore with smoke, but the sprite sheet for it is fully rendered and pretty nasty.

* The game overall has a very surreal and bizarre feeling to it, especially if you dont know the infamous TwistEnding. Odd things like the concrete maintenance tunnels running under the islands.
* Cant forget the disturbing nightmare Guybrush has after falling out of the tree. Other than the characters, the entire world gets a bloodred tint, Guybrush's parents show up only to turn into skeletons which sing a song that is actually a hint for a later puzzle, and finally Le Chuck himself showing up, transforming into Guybrush from the first game and spraying him with the voodoo root beer.

* Rum Rogers Jnr's Basement, in which there is the skeleton of his father in the bath. This is made funny by the fact there's a toaster in the bath (making it anachronistic) but the presence of it is still scary.

* Another death, this time belonging to [[spoiler: Guybrush himself! While getting run through with a cutlass isn't the most violent death, especially due to the BloodlessCarnage, Guybrush's inability to die due to him being in a LucasArts game, or in this case a Telltale game, has been a small RunningGag throughout the series, so the fact that it actually happened is that much more painful]].

** The eye-related horror continues shortly after when Guybrush breaks into his first fit of the Pox since he lost his hand. He doubles over, holding his head, and when he glares up at Bugeye, the whites of his eyes are blood-red, and the normally friendly blue is a demonic yellow. His eyelids twitch constantly and the Pox spreads visibly across his skin and remains that way until you find La Esponja.

* Chapter 3: Bugeye's trump card of a scary face involves sticking one of his eyeballs out of his mouth. When challenged to "top that", Guybrush asks "Are you suggesting that I [[EyeScream pull out BOTH my eyes]]??"

* Though never shown, it's mentioned that between the events of Revenge and Curse, Guybrush underwent horrible torture at the hands of LeChuck. When he finds himself back at the Carnival of the Damned, where it all took place, a hint of despair enters the normally cheery Guybrush's voice.

* The Head of the Navigator. It's exactly what it sounds like, a mummified head kept alive by magic. Even the more cartoony special edition repaint of its face is still fairly disturbing, and it wears a necklace of eyeballs to boot.



* The entire Goodsoup Hotel, though entirely harmless, has a bit of a creepy air about it, especially when you go upstairs. It only gets creepier when you enter the furthest room down the hall and the music vanishes. When you pull the bed down from the wall, [[spoiler: Guybrush finds a mostly decayed corpse. And then it gets WORSE when you lever the bed back up later and the skeleton shoots through the wall and parachutes down into the crypt, visible through the window, laughing hysterically all the way down.]] It turns into a hilariously romantic cutscene moments later, but Guybrush still ends up back in the crypt afterward.

* The extremely unsettling catacombs inside the giant Monkey head, which are composed of body parts, giant mushrooms and lava. The thing about these is that they randomly generate and form a maze, and you can't navigate them without the Navigator necklace, so if you don't know this you can be going round in circles forever (although it will usually regenerate the room in which you came in after going through a few doors).
