  • THE KILLER RABBIT. It may look cute and cuddly, but tread towards the cave of Caerbannog, and he'll strike! Even Tim the Enchanter warned the Knights of the Round Table they heed his warning:
    Tim the Enchanter: For the entrance to this cave is guarded by a creature, so foul, so cruel, that no man yet has fought with it and lived! BONES OF FULL FIFTY MEN LIE STREWN ABOUT HIS LAIR! So, brave knights, if you do doubt your courage, come nay further! For death awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth!
  • The entire scene where Sir Lancelot kills almost every single wedding guest and blood is everywhere in the process. Even Lancelot's bloodthirsty exclaiming doesn't help at all.
  • In the woods (after the old man from Scene 24 disappears without a trace), Arthur and Bedevere ride through, then notice something that catches their eyes. Scare Chords sound off and Arthur eyes several figures passing by, even each moment the camera zooms into his eyes that are showing his worried expression helps.

How well does it match the trope?
