* ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' introduced the "fast zombies," truly terrifying monstrosities that looked like flayed, emaciated corpses, moved like wild baboons on speed and howled loudly in blood-curdling screams as they attacked you. Except one of the stock sound clips was taken from the title sequence of ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters''. The horrific screaming the headcrab zombies when they're set on fire is also hard to take as seriously when you look at one of many comments/videos on the internet about how it sounds like they're screaming [[MemeticMutation "YABBA! MY ICING!"]] And it turns right back into NightmareFuel [[spoiler:when someone else comments that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfsBFN8PC1s they're screaming "OH GOD HELP ME" backwards]]]].

* ''Videogame/Portal2'' has Wheatley tell a ghost story as you follow him over a conveyor belt full of mangled and crushed robot parts. Of course, {{SelfDemonstrating/Wheatley}} [[TheDitz being]] [[IdiotBall Wheatley]], it doesn't have quite the impact he intended it to have.

* As has been noted elsewhere on the wiki, Belial Vamdemon from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' ([=MaloMyotismon=] in the dub). In addition to looking completely stupid, he just ''stands there and gets pummelled'' like a moron before [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath literally being killed by the power of childrens's dreams]].

** Don't forget Apocalymon. His quips in the dub make him the most pathetic BigBad in the series until Belial Vamdemon. To be fair, he is probably just utterly insane and LaughablyEvil. Still, some of his lines are pure fourth wall breaking awesome.

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Count Brocken's appearance -a man whose head and body are split apart, and the former constantly hovers around the later, talking, laughing and screaming- was meant be frightening (in the manga he got Kouji reaaaly scared when he showed up for first time; and in the anime [[TheDragon Baron Ashura]] initially thought it a bodyless ghost). Buuuut in the manga Boss managed grabbing his head when he got distracted, and Kouji and his friends played fetch and Brocken Ball (think of it like soccer, but replacing the ball with Brocken's head. And the only rule is everyone win. Except the ball). It was a tad ''hard'' taking him seriously after that. That scene did not happen in the anime, but on the other hand you had Brocken's head and body arguing with themselves -and the body punching the head-, or Ashura grabbing his head and instead of bring it back with the body, slapping him around...

* As awesome as the ''ComicBook/SupermanBrainiac'' arc in Action Comics was (which actually contained fairly competent, if mild, nightmare fuel) it also contained spaceships shaped like skulls. (Still, skull-shaped ships in a Comicbook/{{Brainiac}} storyarc must be due to the GrandfatherClause.)

** WesternAnimation/ATrollInCentralPark; the villain Gnorga has mildly frightening elements (namely her ability to imprison people helplessly in stone), but she has such a [[CardCarryingVillain one-dimensional]] [[BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad personality]] that she comes off as a [[EvilIsPetty petty bully]] instead of a truly fearsome villain. One scene that especially falls flat is when she and her husband chase after Rosie and Gus--It's very hard for them to look threatening when they chase after them on tiny ''tricycles''.

* More or less the entirety of ''Film/ExorcistIITheHeretic'' - quite infamously, given that it's the sequel to what's often considered the scariest movie ever. Highlights include a goofy "mind synchronizer" device, Reagan suffering an attack during a jazzy tapdancing performance, reams of nonsensical pseudo-metaphysical exposition, and James Earl Jones dressed up as a giant locust as spitting a leopard from his mouth.

* ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'': in the opening scenes the villagers claim a werewolf roams through the forest at night. The atmosphere is really creepy and the audience wonders what this creature will look like. When the protagonist goes to sleep the camera shows a wolf like creature walking in the forest, but it's clearly not a werewolf, left alone a wolf, but a striped hyena! And it's strange to downright ridiculous that this animal walks around in Transylvania, Romania.

Unfortunately, it's quite obvious that the tendril is a sock puppet. Also, the Triffids themselves were basically giant sunflowers. SUNFLOWERS.

* ''Film/TheInvasion'' suffers many moments like this. For one, Nicole Kidman's character look for the term ''my son is not my son'' in Google with no quotation marks. In another scene, many people are avoiding showing emotion to avoid the body snatchers. They tell the protagonist not to show emotion, then one of them snaps. The entire group, minus the protagonist, then fails to escape, even though nothing was stopping them beyond fear of a railway line (the alternative being captured by monsters and, for all they know, killed). In early scenes, the sense of paranoia is ruined when groups of people who very blatantly have something wrong with are roaming around, long before anything being wrong with them is introduced as a concept.
** This movie avoids calling itself a horror movie (a trait which, in horror stories, is associated with being made by people thinking their movies are "too good" for the horror genre). It's the only adaption of said story to replace the pod aliens with drink-infecting chemicals. Yep, it almost screams "nevermind the shoddy writing, we've got rape imagery! Everyone's going to take us seriously now!"

** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS15E2TheInvisibleEnemy The Invisible Enemy]]" has some surprisingly horrible bits in the first episode where the Doctor has been infected by a parasite that has taken over his body. We have seen the Doctor get {{Mind Rape}}d before this, but he always maintained his willpower (and the one time he did get broken in "Pyramids of Mars" the villain was interrupted before he could go very far with it), so it is the first time we see the Doctor fully possessed and [[AxCrazy about to hurt people]]. Unfortunately, the budget was really suffering by this point and the story is also a FantasticVoyagePlot with lazy ToiletHumor, which quickly destroys all horror one could feel.
*** The Swarm, a pathetic looking iridescent space shrimp with adorable little kicky legs that giggles about taking over the universe. Even the Doctor seems to find it a real disappointment, complaining that it's a 'pathetic crustacean' and rolling his eyes.

** The revived ''Series/DoctorWho'' has the Abzorbaloff from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E10LoveAndMonsters Love & Monsters]]". Imagine a slimy green sumo wrestler...with human faces sprouting from random places on its body. Probably justified as it was conceived by an 8-year old for a contest (although the original Abzorbaloff in the boy's mind was the size of ''[[NightmareFuel a double-decker bus]]''.) It might have intentionally been played this way by the writers, given that it was the MonsterOfTheWeek from possibly the biggest BizarroEpisode in the show's history.

* Alf-Layla-Wa-Layla from ''VideoGame/SonicAndTheSecretRings'' may look scary ([[BodyHorror his transformation isn't particularly pleasant to watch either]]), but the voice work for him just kills the scare factor. It tries to make him sound booming and powerful, but it just sounds like he inhaled a tank of helium, which has the unintended effect of making him sound like a petulant man child. Just try to listen to him say "The stories of this world are MINE!" without laughing.

* The ''Film/FinalDestination'' series usually thrives on ParanoiaFuel, taking ordinary situations and turning them deadly in rather unexpected, but at least plausible manners. However, the more implausible deaths tend to have the opposite effect, and either have you rolling your eyes, or laughing hysterically. This was especially bad in the [[Film/FinalDestination3 third]] and [[Film/FinalDestination4 fourth]] films, where both of them include the overuse of illogical [[RubeGoldbergDevice domino effects]] or just being ridiculous.
