  • Crowning Moment of Funny - Captain Scarlet screaming "GOODNIGHT ORSON!" into an electronic bug, deafening the poor mook listening in on them.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome - Every single song in the entire original series. No exceptions.
  • Ear Worm - The theme tune.
  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel - The idea of getting brutally murdered, Getting replaced by an alien copy, Without anybody knowing is a bit scary.
    • The whole Attack On Cloudbase Episode if you discount the ending.
    • Any scene with Captain Black.. Good god...
    • How about the artwork in the end credits? Seeing the hero about to be crushed by closing spiked walls, tied up and sinking while sharks close in for the kill...
  • Nightmare Fuel - It's surprising that the kids of the 60's who watched this weren't scarred for life at the death toll. At least 6 people die per episode -- people EXPLODE, fall out of airplanes, fall off dams, get crushed by car lifts, get run over, get shot in the FACE, and turn into living bombs.
    • Captain Black is Nightmare Fuel incarnate.
    • The opening credits put the camera in the viewpoint of someone sneaking down a dark alley who is suddenly caught by searchlights, unloads an entire clip into his attacker and is shot dead. By the Hero, who doesn't even flinch as he does so.
  • Uncanny Valley - The characters in the CGI remake fall into this sometimes.
    • They also occasionally did as well in the original.
