* '''Fear Perception:''' The power to know what a person's fears are. For example, one could see a picture in your head or somesuch similar thing. One then has different options to use this info. This type does not necessarily include the ability to project those fears into people's heads and they may have to be exploited in a more normal way, such as dropping them in a snake pit or a sewer full of rats.
* '''Fear Inducement:''' The power to [[YourWorstNightmare bring a person's fears to life]] without actually having any knowledge about what those fears are. This power does not deliberately cause a person to believe they are, for example, vomiting worms, it's just the effect of the power on that particular person. It is sort of like infecting people with dread.
* '''Fear Invocation:''' The power to see a person's fears and[=/=]or show them their fears (if they have several). Control is near-absolute and often includes intensity and duration. A character with this power will usually have some kind of psychic or illusionary power to bring the fears to life.

* In ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'', "The Scarecrow" has the power to discover and induce a person's greatest fear. (Ironically, poetic justice proves his ''own'' greatest fear turns out to be-- a fear of BATS!)

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheTaking'', the invaders besieging the town inherently know what people's fears and insecurities are and use them to drive people to despair [[spoiler:so that they will be of no help to the world's children and thus have their souls taken]]. For Molly, this takes the form of poems she likes being mockingly quoted at her out of nowhere and encounters with her AxCrazy father, whom she fears most.

* Naruto in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11729865/5/Desperation-Attracts-Vultures Desperation Attracts Vultures]]'' utilizes this against Sasuke at Mei's suggestion (though he takes it much further than she expected). During their match, he first gives Zabuza's "eight targets" speech then disguises himself as Haku and claiming to have never really died. This drives Sasuke into such a panic that he uses both his Cursed Seal and Chidori.

It goes without saying that this is usually a [[BadPowersBadPeople bad guy power]]. If it's a power used by a DeadlyDecadentCourt, OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness or just a plain evil enough version of TheGovernment, then it will almost always take the form of {{Room101}}. It can, however, be used by a TerrorHero who ultimately fights for the good guys -- though, naturally, these tend to be some shade of AntiHero.
