For examples where this trope comes about as the result of FridgeLogic rather than anything occurring onscreen, please see FridgeHorror.

to:

Tropes used to invoke this feeling are HorrorTropes. Tropes ''about'' the emotion of fear itself are FearTropes. If it is ''unintentionally'' scary, it's AccidentalNightmareFuel. If it is meant to scare but fails to deliver, and [[{{Narm}} becomes hilarious instead]], it devolves into NightmareRetardant. Characters that are this InUniverse are TheDreaded.

The aftermath of frightening moments, such as death or trauma or violence inflicted upon likable characters, can easily overlap with TearJerker.

Bonus points if this (or even any of the other) Nightmare Fuel scene(s) was/were [[BasedOnATrueStory what actually happened in history/real life.]]
