* Pizza the Hut is pretty damn freakish and he dies (off-screen) in a particularly disturbing way. Not to mention Vinny makes it ''worse'' by eating some of him and declaring him delicious, which is sick on so [[HoYay many]] [[ConsumingPassion levels]].

** Worse, according to the novel when that failed President Skroob came up with a even worse torture, BRANDING his name on Vespa! Even Dark Helmet was disgusted at such a ruthless technique despite him being ruthless even though he doesn’t know what ruthless means!

Added DiffLines:

* Dark Helmet's attempt to get Vespa by disguising himself as her father. The soundtrack in that scene is eerie, but quickly subverted.

* Pizza the Hut is pretty damn freakish and he dies (off-screen) in a particularly disturbing way. Not to mention Vinny makes it ''worse'' by eating some of him and declaring him delicious, which is sick on so [[HoYay many]] [[ConsumingPassion levels]].
* The alien bursting out of John Hurt's chest... [[MoodWhiplash right up until it starts singing]].
* The king giving up the password comes across as unreasonably cowardly at first, and the "threat" of reversing the princess's nose job seems laughable. But consider this. Vespa fainted seconds before with no hints of anesthetic around. The doctor picks up a couple of large, sharp instruments to do the work. And the king is about to watch his daughter's face be mutilated on a video channel ''that's still open!!'' [[EvilIsPetty Petty evil]] at its scariest.
* In general, the abundance of [[TheCaligula Caligulas]] running the Spaceballs--President Skroob is a ditherer and responsible for wasting all of their air, and Dark Helmet is a {{Manchild}} with a HairTriggerTemper. Even though this is all PlayedForLaughs, there's no denying that an organization that's so StupidEvil it has to resort to [[PlanetLooters draining the oxygen off a planet]] is pretty scary.
** And on the topic of the planet draining, Mega-Maid sucking all the oxygen off of Druidia is actually ''[[UpToEleven so much worse]]'' than what [[EarthShatteringKaboom the Death Star on which it's based does]] in spite of the admittedly hilarious build-up--at least with the Death Star your planet's destruction is guaranteed quick and painless, while the Mega Maid is shown to suck up all the snow and trees and painfully suffocate Vespa's father.
