Nightmare Fuel / The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

Go To
  • Giant moon people who's heads can fly off, their bodies still moving around.
    • It makes for an eerie sight to begin with, but the king of the moon is also an absolute psycho whether his head is on or not. He imprisons the Baron and Sally for no reason without his body, and tries to feed them to a three-headed bird when his head is reattached.
  • A giant three headed bird creature and a giant sea monster.
  • People getting their heads cut off, with the heads still alive sometimes.
  • The Grim Reaper constantly showing up.
  • Vulcan, who proudly shows off a nuclear missile and giddly describes its effect to the clueless 18th Century adventurers.
    Vulcan: [The bomb] kills the enemy... Aye, all of them. All their wives, and all their children, and all their sheep, and all their cattle, and all their cats and dogs. All of them. All of them gone for good.
  • The Sultan's literal instrument of torture- an organ where the pipes are prisoners in a cage that the player pokes and stabs by pressing the keys. There's also his executioner, whose eyes have been sewn shut.
