Adult Fears are about the things mature, well-adjusted adults generally ''are'' concerned about, as opposed to supernatural or far-fetched fears: the [[MamaBear safety of]] [[PapaWolf their children]], the safety of their neighborhood, [[YourCheatingHeart the fidelity of their spouse]], [[WithFriendsLikeThese the loyalty of their friends and coworkers]], [[StarvingStudent 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 [[OverprotectiveDad paranoid fathers]]), kids being preyed upon by [[PaedoHunt pedophiles]] or [[TheSociopath sociopaths]] is scarier than kids being preyed upon by a [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]]. [[OutlivingOnesOffspring Outliving your children in general]] might be the worst fear of this kind. Often overlaps with PrimalFear.

->''"[W]hen you get past the age where you’re capable of believing there’s [[ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight something carnivorous and hairy under the bed]], you don't then lose your capacity for fear. The monsters go, and in their place, lucky you, you get to start imagining real calamities: losing your parents in a car wreck, becoming destitute, having someone you love turn on you, or doing something so shocking that the community ostracizes you."''

->''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.''
