Nightmare Fuel / Epic

Go To
Giant mouse!
  • The fact that the Boggans wear bat and rat skins is rather unsettling.
    • Hundreds of them.
      • Thousands of them, all exploding out from behind pieces of bark in ambush. Doubles as a villainous Moment of Awesome.
  • Awww, look at the cute little mousey. It's so BAH! JESUS CHRIST!
    • Word of God says that the mouse is specifically a grasshopper mouse. You know, the world's only carnivorous rodent, that feeds mainly on venomous scorpions and other rodents (including its own kind), and at night howls like a tiny werewolf? Now imagine it (relatively speaking) being the size of a grizzly bear.
    • That Word of God can also rate as Nightmare Retardant, if it distracts you from the Nightmare Fuel to wonder what the heck a grasshopper mouse is doing in what looks like New England.
  • The bird skeleton. Just seeing Mandrake kill the poor thing is just shocking!
    • Actually, it was a bat. Doesn't make it any less unpleasant, though.
  • The rot poison of the Boggan weapons, particularly Mandrake's staff.
  • Madrake destroying an entire tree in a rage when Bufo makes light of his son's death.

  • The look on Mandrake's face and the glee in his voice when he's about to kill Ronin.
    Mandrake: What's that little saying you people have? Lots of leaves, something, something...? Very inspiring.
