!!Notes to editors
All Nightmare Fuel examples should be specific and give details of what was scary. This is not TroperTales, so don't write in first person.

On the other hand, Nightmare Fuel doesn't exist just in the horror genre and is not always the main focus of the films and shows in which it is present. In the case of such movies and shows where Nightmare Fuel or anything related to horror is far from the norm, it can be unsettling when it does occur due to the [[MoodWhiplash stark contrast]], especially if the genre of the film or show is far from horror, such as comedy or animation, [[NightmareFuel/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic or when in a show]] [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids with a very specific target demographic]].
