* The Japan-only ''{{Transformers}}'' Binaltech Kiss Play sub-line is exceedingly disturbing, what with the constant [[{{Lolicon}} little girl]] on TransformingMecha subtext and mindless, cannibalistic Megatron clones with enormously phallic tongues.

Some fears are universal. [[DarknessEqualsDeath The dark]], heights, [[AfraidOfBlood blood]], [[{{Claustrophobia}} enclosed spaces]], [[SnakesAreSinister snakes]], [[SpidersAreScary spiders]], [[TheSociopath psychopaths]], [[FearOfThunder loud sounds]], pain, death, monsters, humiliation, loneliness, [[NothingIsScarier complete emptiness]]; these fears have always been with us. They are the dangers our early ancestors faced, and their shadows still haunt our nightmares. Most people are a little nervous about such things -- not many people could walk on a glass bridge over the Grand Canyon without any railings, and not feel a little anxious -- and full-blown phobias are easily enough induced.

* For such an innocent-looking show, ''PrettyCure'' has this page pretty well covered... and then some. For instance, do you like the idea that, at a crucial moment, someone who was about to give you the ability to save your friends will suddenly decide you don't deserve it, leaving you to watch helplessly as said friends only barely pull through and the bad guys get away with the MacGuffin? Yeah, neither did [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Karen]].
* Manga/FrankenFran deals mostly in BodyHorror, but the creator is trying desperately to cover ALL the bases, already dealing with at least half this list.

* If you are a builder in VideoGame/SecondLife, accidental skydives become rather common.

* The second volume of ''[[{{Trigun}} Trigun Maximum]]'', of all things, hits this in the very first chapter. A group of about 40 officers have their bodies taken control of, and are forced to all squeeze into a box on the back of a truck made to hold one (very large) man. The result of them all squishing themselves together is pretty implied when you see the blood pouring out of the bottom of the truck.

* ''Creator/SuzanneCollins'', seems to be a fan of these. Her books are filled with deadly bugs (sometimes deadly ''giant'' bugs), vicious animals, burning/drowning/disembowelment/horrifically cruel deaths, and being eaten alive (often by bugs or vicious animals).

* ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'', and [[TheSlenderManMythos such videos like it]], often use sudden bursts of static and video distortion, even during normal conversation and unremarkable events.

* ''[[WebOriginal/TheFearMythos The Fear Mythos]]'' is a CreepyPasta franchise ''dedicated'' to this. Similarly, its precursor, the terrifying [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man Mythos,]] relies on fear of the unknown, the dark and simple NothingIsScarier to make you piss yourself. It works incredibly well. [[ParanoiaFuel Just don't look behind you.]]

* 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]].]]

''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!
