- High Octane Nightmare Fuel: The MAX series does a decent job at this, but if you're after high octane may I recommend "The End".
- Good god, "The Slavers" is full of High Octane Nightmare Fuel. Viorica's backstory. What Frank does to the three ringleaders of the slaving gang. The sickening image of Viorica's murdered baby. Jen Cooke's accounts of what happened to other girls/women, which are Truth in Television.
- Punisher POV towards the end.
- Barracuda in general.
- MAX Bulleye's attempts to get inside Frank's head. See Complete Monster spoilers above.
- Frank Castle's own death during the Marvel Dark Reign also counts. Being sliced up by Daken is exactly as messy as it sounds.
- The Valley Forge Massacre. The N.V.A. launched an assault on Firebase Valley Forge where Frank was the top dog. Due to bad weather and other problems they couldn't recieve reinforcements. After the battle ended and the smoke cleared 700 men were dead, including 200 US troops. Frank was the only survivor, he was found still standing, surrounded by 20 enemy soldiers with their heads smashed in, holding a broken rifle and riddled with bullet holes. The story arc Valley Forge, Valley Forge has typed interludes that are excerpts from the book of the brother of one of the men who died, featuring interviews with those involved (the sister of his brother's friend, the man on the radio and one of the men who first arrived at the aftermath). All three of them combined paint a picture of the events surrounding the massacre and its effect on Frank Castle, and its a very scary picture. The massacre itself is detailed in the Born miniseries and reveals why Frank survived: He made a deal with either The Devil or Death.
