* ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' is the LighterAndSofter spin off of ''Doctor Who''. That does not stop it from practically running on AdultFear with teenage anxieties and the possibility of loosing your child coming up a lot. And then there is any story featuring [[KnightOfCerebus The Trickster]] which would not look out of place on the parent show.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'' starts with requiring you to accept a warning for disturbing content, but the game remains light-hearted and cheerful for long enough that it still comes as a massive shock when [[spoiler:the player character finds Sayori's hanging corpse and the game starts getting ''very'' glitchy from that point onwards]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'' has this in spades. Being a BossRush game based on cartoons from the 1930s, everything is trying to kill you, has crazy physics and once they reach their OneWingedAngel phase, the NightmareFuel starts pumping. Special mention to Carny Carnation for his NightmareFace and The Devil.

Added DiffLines:

* The VideoGame/YoNoid FanSequel, ''Yo! Noid 2: Enter the Void'' starts off as a lighthearted spoof of the original game, with a [[StealthPun cheesy]] live-action opening cutscene, lots of puns, and a button dedicated to dabbing. Even after you enter the titular Noid Void, there are still plenty of fun anthropomorphic food characters and bright, cheery moments. [[spoiler:Then, during the second level, you find a [[OminousVisualGlitch rapidly glitching character]] who tells you that the whole world is just an illusion, and that "he" monitors everything, [[LovecraftLite although he can be stopped]]. Then, at the climax of the game, you find out who "he" is: Mike Hatsune, a [[UncannyValley disturbing]] HumanoidAbomination who seeks to replace the Noid with "a new Noid for a new age", speaks in text-to-speech (unlike every other character, mind you) and lives in a [[BleakLevel a creepy television world without any of the charm or humor of the other levels]]. The worst part? ''[[TheBadGuyWins He actually succeeds]]'', replacing the Noid with Hatsune Miku... [[ForegoneConclusion just like]] [[RealLifeWritesThePlot in real life]]]].

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZmutXJI1R4 Lesley the Pony Has An A+ Day!]] is pretty self-explanatory, detailing the pony happily prancing through the kingdom to see the duke. About a third of the way through, the music stops completely and the duke starts lecturing Lesley about being late. They're both portrayed through detailed illustrations with SynchroVox mouths and robotic voices, which is pretty eerie. But then the video [[FromBadToWorse spirals into horrifying]] as Lesley goes completely mad and self-destructive.

* The ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' games feature [[RediculouslyCuteCritter cute]] [[WaddlingHead characters]], a [[CheerfulChild cheerful]] [[PlayerCharacter eponymous protagonist]], [[SceneryPorn colorful and fanciful levels]], and ''lots'' of frightening [[FinalBoss final bosses]]. One of them is actually named [[VideoGame/KirbysAdventure Nightmare]], and he's not even the scariest by a long shot! Perhaps most infamous among them are [[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Marx Soul]], especially his [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe death]] [[HellIsThatNoise sequence]], and [[VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3 0]], mostly for his ClippedWingAngel transformation. Kirby 64 continues the tradition; while Dark Matter and especially the possession scenes are at least [[BodyHorror unsettling]], they still don't provide any good warning for the jarring final boss. It took ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand'' to finally jack up the age rating to E10+, and the games mentioned earlier only got an E10+ rating when ''[[MilestoneCelebration Kirby's Dream Collection]]'' was announced. For reference, that's over a ''decade'' since their original releases.
