* The Big Bass in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' and especially ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', which would ''snatch you right off the surface and swallow you whole in one gulp'', is especially disturbing.

* ''VideoGame/{{Subnautica}}'': The fate of any player who gets too close to the chompy end of a Reaper Leviathan or the Sea Dragon. Yes, there is a special animation, yes, it is in first-person, and yes, it is pants-wettingly freaky.

* ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' features a BigBad who wants to destroy all the worlds. It's a standard villain thing, and you usually manage to discover the PlotCoupon in each world before he can destroy it... except one. In the happy ninja world full of honorable men in a cartoony version of medieval Japan, you get delayed... and the world falls apart around you. You re-enter the world and where there was once dozens of people, [[TheVoid there's now whiteness]]. A seemingly infinite expanse of whiteness, with only the [[EverybodysDeadDave occasional pile of dust dotting the landscape]].

* ''ChronoTrigger'': You and your newly acquired teammates are going to rescue Marne. You're traveling through this big, elaborate cathedral-like structure with this sad, soulful music playing in the background. You run into a pair of innocent-looking nuns, and try to talk to them, only for them to suddenly transform into giant, ferocious, demonic Nagas who go at you at full force.

* ''{{Bionicle}}'' has multiple examples that encompass each and every kind of fear: the chamber that brings one's worst fear to life; Irnakk, a legendary creature whose power is to subject its targets to their own fears; and Karzahni's MaskOfPower, which projects horrible visions of alternate futures into the target's head, [[MindRape mind-raping]] them into obedience.

* The whole idea behind ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' was to make a film and boogeyman who is a compendium of all the primal fears that are known to be the subject of nightmares for people in every single part of the world (drowning, falling, being chased and finding yourself unable to run away, being eaten alive, being forced to watch helplessly as a friend or loved one is victimized, etc.), and actually uses those nightmares to get to them. The only universal nightmare that seems left out is end of the world dreams. That might be because, as Freddy is tied to the dream world itself, its ending is ''his'' primal fear.

** According to WordOfGod (namely, Wes Craven), this is also the reason for Freddy wielding his iconic bladed glove. He picked that weapon for the villain because it physically evokes the killer claw of a great cat, one of mankind's oldest fears since the savanna days.
