Some fears are universal. [[DarknessEqualsDeath The dark]], [[PrecariousLedge heights]], [[AfraidOfBlood blood]], [[{{Claustrophobia}} enclosed spaces]], {{snakes|AreSinister}}, {{spiders|AreScary}}, [[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.

* In Creator/AndreNorton's ''[[Literature/{{Warlock}} Forerunner Foray]]'', Ziantha is trapped in D'Eyree's mind as she is entombed and killed; only Turan's sacrificing his last strength saves her. Then, as Vintra, she must psychically persuade Zuha to have her buried in a tomb.

* One theory about the origins of [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] is that they're an amalgamation of animals that humans fear on instinct, mainly [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent venomous reptiles]], [[PantheraAwesome big cats]] and [[DeathFromAbove birds of prey]].

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' animated series featured a two-part episode with a "Spirit-drinker" that Lady Deathstrike [[SealedEvilInACan accidentally released from an alien prison ship]]. It does [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what the name suggests]]. What made it creepy, though, was the way the energy or gas or whatever that it was made of would occasionally take the form of the face of one of its victims, begging for help in faraway, ghostly voices.

* ''Film/MyFavoriteMartian'', after Lizzie takes the "Veenox 7" nerplex gum turns into a hideous monster and swallows a man whole. Then turns back to normal. Never watching that again.

* The Big Bass (Not, that's not a typo) 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.

** Cell 'eats' people by stabbing them with his tail and sucking them until nothing remains except their clothes. All the while the people being eating is fully conscious and screaming in agony. Androids 17 and 18 arguably had it worse since they were swallowed whole by Cell.
** Buu turns people into living candy or chocolate before eating them. Given what happened with Vegeto, the people transform are fully aware of what is happening, but can't move and prevent themselves from being eating alive.

* 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.

* 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.
