** And he [[WouldHurtAChild killed at least one baby, baby]], [[spoiler: the youngest Roba brother]].

Added DiffLines:

* At the end of "Marik Plays Slender", it's the first instance that this iteration of Slender Man is genuinely scary. Even though all he does is say his usual "Hey guys" line, it sounds creepy and drawn out.


* Dartz's entire BreakingSpeech to Yami in Episode 81. He points out all of Yami's flaws and nearly gets him to succumb to the Orichalcos again. The only thing scarier (and [[TearJerker heartbreaking]]) is that the speech Yami has to himself as he's giving in is also a metaphor for Creator/LittleKuriboh's depression.

* Another Melvin example: In LK's fic "Marik and Bakura go to Censored Town", he makes two appearances and dear god! His major appearance, later on in the fic, has him gleefully torturing Bakura, taunting him about how he wants to kill him, and make Marik watch in the Soul Room, as he can control what Marik remembers/feels and what he doesn't. This isn't just the silly, over the top villain we're used to. He's cold and ruthless, and we see why he scares Bakura so much. And the way he happily mutilates his own body with the Rod... Brrrr.

This isn't just the silly, over the top villain we're used to. He's to; he's cold and ruthless, and we see why he scares Bakura so much. (The only thing that stops this scene from being outright horror is the fact that Melvin's naked except for a very clingy and revealing purple thong.)
--> '''Melvin:''' I didn't realise you'd been counting. I've been counting too.
--> '''Bakura:''' Counting the number of times I chased you away like a bad dream?
--> '''Melvin:''' Counting the number of minutes you have left. The number of breaths. The number of heartbeats.
And believe me, you don't want to know the way he happily mutilates his own body with results. If I told you, it would take all the Rod... Brrrr.fun out of it.



--> Since that night, Melvin had visited often. But Bakura had always been ready.

** His first appearance is also chilling; Bakura has an internal monologue about Marik having a "Melvin Dream", and in a flashback, Melvin comes to Bakura's room one night, [[LaughingMad just laughing to himself.]] When Bakura tried speaking to him, he screamed "like a banshee" and rushed to Bakura's side with a knife, with Bakura having to try and talk him out of murdering him. The flashback ends with Marik being really upset and needing comfort, and Bakura noting that this ''keeps happening''.


* Seto in Season Zero. He's actually nice and friendly... while still having a CreepyMonotone, making his kindness sort of creepy.

to:

* Season Zero Yami. He has all the characteristics of his counterpart from the main abridged series magnified by 100, turning him from just an aloof, selfish {{Jerkass}} into a crazy, murderous sadist who at times makes ''Melvin'' look normal. Even though it's all done for comedy, it's still equally terrifying to watch. And the Franchise/{{Halloween}} theme being used as his {{Leitmotif}} is surprisingly effective at adding to the creepiness.

* The way Yami dealt with Tea's boss in S0E2. In the manga he was at least honourable enough to warn his opponent that he'd risk setting himself on fire and the anime has Yami just play a penalty game that made it seem like the manager was on fire. Here, he manages to top both previous versions of himself and goads the guy into his trap, which sets him on fire ''for real''.

Added DiffLines:

* Melvin's EarlyBirdCameo from episode 17. Between the DroneOfDread and the NightmareFace (which has yellow eyes now), it's very unsettling.
