Added DiffLines:

** While most of ''Igor'' is light on nightmare fuel, "New Magic Wand" is a glaring exception, with a [[SensoryAbuse sinister and abrasive beat]] akin to Tyler's ''Bastard'' [=/=] ''Goblin'' output and lyrics about Tyler becoming [[{{Yandere}} dangerously obsessive towards his crush]] and wanting to [[MurderTheHypotenuse kill the woman he perceives as a romantic rival]].

Added DiffLines:

*[[DeliberatelyMonochrome Tyler's]] [[NightmareFace face]] on the album cover to Music/{{IGOR}} could qualify as this.


* "She", an R&B ballad about a StalkerWithACrush [[ParanoiaFuel who has an obsessive infatuation with a woman, even watching over her as she sleeps]]. Doesn't help that Frank Ocean's hook turns this into an EarWorm.

* The first half of "Who Dat Boy" is rife with FacialHorror right from the thumbnail. The video starts out with Tyler creating something that blows up in his face, [[NightmareFace literally]]. Judging by the lyrics and the fact that the police are after him throughout the video, it's safe to assume it was a bomb. Tyler then visits Wiz Khalifa, who sews a new face onto him which once again reeks of the UncannyValley.

Added DiffLines:

* The video to "Buffalo" is rife with UncannyValley imagery. It starts out with Tyler in his white face makeup again, sporting an [[KubrickStare lopsided glare at the viewer]], but then it zooms out to reveal [[spoiler: that he's been lynched and that an [[TorchesAndPitchforks angry mob]] is ''still'' coming for him. Tyler lowers himself from the noose and]] he starts running, but the way he walks is unsteady and jilted, like a corpse or a ragdoll. [[spoiler: [[NightmareRetardant At least the second half of the video is okay.]]]]


-->'''Samuel''': [[WhamLine Oh, SHUT THE]] ''[[PrecisionFStrike FUCK]]'' [[WhamLine UP, YOU PUSSY!]] ([[spoiler:*a gunshot is heard along with the sound of Earl hitting the floor]]) [[WhamLine SAMUEL'S HERE!]]

* Possibly worse is "Sarah" from Tyler's debut album. It seems to be about a boy who kills, cannibalizes and rapes a girl [[DisproportionateRetribution after she says no]] [[MinorInjuryOverreaction to his invitation to prom]].

* Or even worse is Tron Cat from Goblin. The beat is creepy as hell, Tyler says stuff like [[DeadBabyComedy he raped a pregnant bitch says he had a threesome]]. Even Dr. T.C. ([[spoiler:who is later revealed as another one of his personalities]]) is speechless and says "[[PrecisionFStrike What the Fuck]]?"

* And then we have the early material from Earl Sweatshirt, the youngest and arguably most talented member of OF, who wrote a song called "Luper" in his eponymous album. Pretty much the whole song seems to be a genuine and heartfelt {{Tearjerker}} about his depression after getting dumped, until the last verse.

** The video is creepy as well: it portrays Tyler as a masked sexual predator with BlackEyesOfEvil that sneaks into the bedroom of Frank Ocean's lover, rapping to her as she sleeps. Frank sees it and reports it to the police who track him down and successfully catch him. As the police take Tyler back to the lover's house, Tyler finds time to rap to her more about how much he loves her, and the scenario ends with Tyler '''[[BreakingTheFourthWall turning to the camera]]''' and [[SlasherSmile smiling]]. It zooms out to show that it's on a TV screen that the lover is watching...but the camera pans up to show that [[ParanoiaFuel Tyler is standing behind her]].

[[TearJerker Made even sadder]] by this line just before he does so: "But all I really want is a kiss on the cheek, in private, not public on the streets..." Not to mention all the nice sound effects in the song, including the victim screaming "Tyler!" through her gag followed by some indiscernible babbling, the sound of her apparently choking on... something... and after her death, a skit in which Tyler cradles what's left of her body and croons to her "My lady... you're my lady... taste so good..." before committing suicide by cop.

** The song itself isn't any less frightening, especially at the end with Wolf Haley's verse. But after that, [[LastNoteNightmare some rather unsettling distortion plays and Wolf says "Dead."]]
