* The Water Dragon. The ''friggin'' Water Dragon in ''{{Okami}}''. Not only does it eat you (but thankfully spits you out) as you escape from the [[NightmareFuel Sunken Ship]], but later as you ride on Ocra, it continues to try to do so, leading into some pretty horrifying chases, complete with terrifying music.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is essentially a CosmicHorrorStory disguised in a SugarBowl setting. [[spoiler:The save and load settings are ''parts'' of Undertale's universe, and a true reset is the equivalent of throwing everyone into a GroundHogDayLoop. The ability to save and load is something only ''extremely'' powerful {{Reality Warper}}s can use and only you and Flowey can do that. And Flowey can only save and load if he has six human souls. The only three people that are aware of you being able to save and load are Frisk, Flowey and Sans. The latter actually going through a DespairEventHorizon because of said saves, loads and resets.]]
** On ''top'' of all that, [[spoiler:characters that didn't make the final cut are essentially {{Ret Gone}}d. The most infamous example being [[TheMissingno W.D. Gaster]].]]

-->''Tweedledee'': He's dreaming now. And what do you think he's dreaming about?\\
''Alice'': Nobody can guess that!\\
''Tweedledee'': Why, about you! And if he left off dreaming about you, where do you suppose you'd be?\\
''Alice'': Where I am now, of course.\\
''Tweedledee'': Not you! You'd be nowhere. Why, you're only a sort of thing in his dream.\\
''Tweedledum'': If that King there was to wake, you'd go out - bang! - like a candle!

** [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Darkseid]]. The guy is a GalacticConqueror whose home-planet would make a good stand-in for '''Hell''', coming to conquer ''us'' and the only one who can stop him is {{Superman}}. Whom Darkseid can beat up. A border-line example of the trope since he was definitely intended to be scary.
* Oddly enough, the [[OrificeInvasion same thing]] happens in ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' with Majin Buu (being more genuinely disgusting than frightening).

* ''Film/{{Nightwish}}'': A professor uses four graduate students to experience their worst fears, then recording their nightmares. Some of the fears covered include being alone in the dark at night, cannibalism, hallucinations, dismemberment, and parasites. However, what the professor really wants to see is the fear of ''death''.

* Picture this: You're playing LuigisMansion. You enter a dark, quiet room. You forget briefly that ghosts will appear suddenly with a loud noise behind you. You scream and drop the controller when one does. And then it takes a long time for your heart rate to go back down... Just so that it can happen again later.

* ''VideoGame/TheLastGuardian'', which takes place in a crumbling ruin of several dozen skyscraper-tall buildings constructed precariously over a massive abyss, invokes this abundantly. The player (a very young boy, no less) is frequently required to walk across tightropes, sidle across narrow ledges, and make incredibly daring jumps - all usually at heights so great there are several clouds beneath him. Often, the only thing preventing him from falling for several miles is a lucky one-arm grab, or a last-ditch save from his giant companion's tail. Did we mention the whole objective of the game is to climb higher and higher until you reach the top of a tower that's literally taller than the wall of mountains surrounding the place? [[spoiler:Or that, during the final sequence, the boy gets ''thrown off'' said tower?]]
