BewareTheQuietOnes indeed.

* Hell, ''The Glow itself'' is made of this. A psychic phenomena that is infectious, it can get you when you least expect it. You end up trapped inside your own head, slowly losing your connections to the outside world as all of your vices are amplified. [[BlackBugRoom This nightmare transforms your mental landscape into a dangerous place as you become a worse person by the day.]] Hell, it's ''implied'' that this is where the ''Nega-Scott '''came from.''''' He only appeared when Scott got the Glow.

* Gideon impaling Ramona from behind when she tries to escape the Glow via Supspace. The subtitles declare him to be a dick for doing so while Gideon a flashes a sadistic smile.

* Early into Volume 6, Scott was having another one of his bizarre dreams; this time he's all alone in the desert. He looks looks up to the sky to see an [[LightIsNotGood angelic]] Ramona Flowers, who swoops down and impales Scott [[spoiler:with The Power of Love sword]], pinning him to the ground. She flies away. Then the sky suddenly becomes dark and three monstrous figures appear out of nowhere and proceed to eat his limbs, with Scott [[ThisIsGonnaSuck being completely helpless]] to watch in horror as he suffers being eaten alive. After the monsters ate his arms and legs, he got a good glimpse of the monsters: [[spoiler:it turns out the monsters were Envy, Knives, and Kim, each with razor-sharp teeth and a [[SlasherSmile psychotic]] [[CheshireCatGrin grin]] (Knives might stick out to some with her smile.exe-esque grin).

He is the only character that [[spoiler:successfully ''killed'' Scott (even if he comes back to life using the 1-Up he got from beating Todd)]] and his sword fight is easily [[BloodierAndGorier the most violent part of the entire comic series.]] It's rather unsettling to see each of his slashes draw a huge amount of blood from Scott when every single other prior battle, including [[HalftheManHeUsedToBe what happened to Roxie,]] was bloodless.

* Subspace. People can get in your head and see your dreams. That's enough of a privacy nightmare when your girlfriend is doing it, and worse still [[spoiler:your nemesis can spy on you and mess with your memories]]. Or, from Ramona's perspective (which is never really explicitly addressed), [[spoiler:a LivingDollCollector ex who is stalking and trying to kill your boyfriend so he can have you all to himself. And is implied to have done the ''exact same thing'' to others. ''Creepy''.]]
