Adult Fears are about the things mature, well-adjusted adults generally ''are'' concerned about, as opposed to supernatural or far-fetched fears: the safety of their children, the safety of their neighborhood, the fidelity of their spouse, the loyalty of their friends and coworkers, being able to pay their bills, etc. RuleOfScary is needed to get from concern to real fear, but WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief must be maintained for effect. To an adult (especially paranoid fathers), kids being preyed upon by pedophiles or sociopaths can be scarier than kids being preyed upon by a [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]]. Outliving your children in general might be the worst fear of this kind. Often overlaps with PrimalFear.

->''I am the fire that leaves you homeless. A heart attack in aisle six. The prescription you cannot collect.\\
I am the boiled sweet stuck in your child's throat. The motorway pileup that leaves you traumatized. The food shopping you cannot do.\\
I am the reason you need a wheelchair. The flood that leaves you stranded. The empty house when you return from the hospital.\\
I am a crisis... and I don't care who you are.''
