Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: The delight he shows in having Yugo watch Dally die is incredibly disturbing to watch]].


** Part of the reason Qilby is so batshit insane is his imprisonment in the White Dimension, which is nightmare fuel in itself for '''10,000 years'''. It's a place of pure milky white with no noise or sound, essentially a sensory deprivation where one cannot even die or even leave without the power of the Eliacube which is highly difficult for anyone besides another Eliatrope to use. Yugo went mad in the dimension after only a few seconds there. Worse off, Qilby planned on throwing Yugo in there after completing his plans to take over the Eliatrope people as revenge for putting him there in a past life. Keep in mind, Eliatropes age slowly and Qilby was thrown in the dimension as an adult. Yugo was still just a child at the time.

* Anathar during his first appearence doesn't look too threatening... until he smiles, showing a grin of huge fangs which nearly doubles the size of his head and revealing that he has a BellyMouth in which he stores Grany and Rubilax.

* At first, Season 2 looks like it'll have a rather more humorous BigBad in the form of Rushu in contrast to Nox, but then we meet the real baddie: [[spoiler:Qilby. If it's not that creepy-as-all-get-go trophy room, it's the fact he's spent a lot of time repeatedly murdering a twelve-year-old and his dragon brother. Then there's his transformation into his paler self with the Wakfu Arm.]]

* Season 3, Episode 11: [[spoiler: Yugo is absorbed by Oropo and locked inside the latter's mind, where, again, he has to face deranged copies of Nox and Quilby, except that this time they physically attack him, which includes Quilby singing a creepy lullaby on how they're going to mess up Yugo. It puts the holier-than-thou Oropo in a creepier light, if possible.]]

[[AdultFear only to find out that her baby is missing from her womb]], but then she sees him, floating in front of her, safe and sound... only to suddenly turn into a black, demonic version of himself, enveloping everything into fire as Eva sees Elely and Flopin as the dark counterparts of the Iop Goddess and Cra God staring down on her. Thankfully it was just a dream, but no longer after that, when she and Flopin seem safe from harm, [[AxCrazy Toxine]] decides to pay them a visit and tries to kill them both.]]

* Oropo, despite showing many virtues, can come off as pretty disturbing, expecially [[spoiler: when the true extent of his plans is revealed and he goes as far as turning against his own companions and preparing to cast a FantasticNuke that will destroy the Gods and possibly the world ''and still believes to be rightful and just'', not to mention that he actually ''has'' the power to accomplish that. Good thing he still loves Echo and his companions though...]]


** Deserboss in general, with that creepy, dead stare of his, his ability to move silently and to phase through vegetation and trees like a phantom as he moves for the kill...

\n* Season 3 Episode 9, we see just how much screwed up is Toxine: according to her, the demigod rooms in Oropo's tower are a reflection of their owner's soul... hers is a blank, mist-covered wasteland with living beartraps and a gigantic, demonic well of green HellFire from which anguished laments are heard, which she gleefully describes as "part of her very soul". Makes you wonder what would happen should she achieve godhood...

* If [[KnightOfCerebus Nox]] isn't busy being [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds depressing]] or [[{{Badass}} kicking ass]], there's a good chance he's invoking this. One of the creepiest parts of the series is the beginning of Episode 24, where he puts on a [[TheDollEpisode cute little puppet show]] showing [[spoiler: his family and their death]] in a disturbing, childlike manner.

to:

* In the teasers for season 3, we see [[spoiler: Adamai, appearing older, taller, looking rather disturbing. It was sad to see him and Yugo fight but now after his FaceHeelTurn, he comes back looking corrupted and genuinely menacing.]]


Added DiffLines:

** On top of that, there's his manner of [[spoiler: going in and out of his portals]] in the season finale. Whereas [[spoiler:Yugo generally leaps athletically in and out of his, Qilby has the much more unsettling technique of staring straight into the camera with a manic expression while his portal opens to his left or right, then simply floating into it and out of sight.]] The overall effect is rather eerie.

Added DiffLines:

** Nox's transformation in the special. By the time Ogrest's Chaos happens [[spoiler:Nox has become a hunched back, rugged man whose movements are spastic and can appear anywhere without warning]].



to:

* The Emporg's [[spoiler: destruction of the stadium is pretty horrifying, as you can quite clearly see ''people screaming and falling into the lava.'']]


* The opening scene of "Reunion". As if we needed more proof that Nox was completely and utterly cracked. Could also double as a Tearjerker.


Added DiffLines:

** If anything, he invokes this even then. It's as though the entire first season is his endgame where we the spectators get to watch him devolve into madness. The true outcome of living beyond what is natural.
