  • Briefly seeing Stocking being so bony in "The Diet Syndrome".
  • Scanty and Kneesocks' theme is frightening with organ music.
  • Corset is a pretty creepy individual with a fittingly deranged face, so naturally, the series gets a bit of Nightmare Fuel just with closeups of his twisted expressions.
  • Some of the Sanitarybox shorts have these qualities, such as the source of "Prickles", which are a snack food made from the foreskins of babies. This also definitely applies to the aftermath of "...of the Dead" where Brief attempts to woo Zombie Panty.
  • The Gainax ending, especially how calm and cold Stocking is after cutting up Panty and revealing that she's a demon.
  • The song’s "Fallen Angel" has some disturbing and sad hidden messages when it’s in reverse. One channel pointed that out and she freaked out when she heard it in reverse, it’s backwards messages were:
    • "Save Me".
    • "My name is Stocking ?????" or "My name is Stocking Seras".note 
      • The Remix of the same song in "The Worst Album" is not even better when also in reverse, the remix made the vocalist say "I’m searching for the light". This is a little disturbing but really sad since you might be thinking if one, Panty/Stocking are crying for help or two, Panty is trying to recover from being slashed to 666 pieces or that Stocking is trying to recover from her demon antics.
