Nightmare Fuel / DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp

Go To

  • There's the complete destruction of the Money Bin as it's transformed into Merlock's new personal and terrifying home filled with horn motifs. Watching Scrooge's iconic place have the building's walls coming down or opening like teeth, the books coming alive and flying like bats before they are destroyed, the vault door dissolving into a blood red-like ooze, everything getting covered in black stones and growing spikes, the alarms blaring, and the alarm's red light flashing on and off as it turns into a completely different location is disturbing.

  • Then there's the nephews and Webby trying to get to safety during the transformation on some stairs...and then the emergency stairway comes off its hinges and traps them.
  • There's also Merlock forcing Genie to transform Dijon into a pig for being such a "disloyal swine" once he's gotten hold of the lamp. Dijon takes it about as well as one can expect, evoking similar images of Lampwick's frightening change in Pinocchio. He gets better, though.
  • Merlock's Disney Villain Death. Basically imagine a Wile E Coyote perspective fall, but Played for Drama, with the victim's blood curdling scream echoing throughout. (Granted, Merlock did return in other Disney media to make it less disturbing).
