* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainSimianAndTheSpaceMonkeys'' used this in the episode "Mind Over Monkey", where Rhesus-2 had the Space Monkeys face illusions of their worst fears as a safeguard against defusing his bomb. Spydor is afraid of pitbulls, Gor-illa is afraid of forest fires, Splitzy is afraid of being locked in a cage, Shao Lin is afraid of being taken from the people she cares about, and Captain Simian is afraid of letting his team down. Captain Simian manages to get rid of the bomb in time after overcoming the illusion of Rhesus-2's worst nightmare, which turns out to be when Lord Nebula first converted him into a cyborg.

These range in severity from embarrassment--showing up in class in your underwear or forgetting how to read--to Buffy getting buried alive and turned into a vampire, to Xander being attacked by a knife-wielding MonsterClown.

** In "Fear Itself" everyone trapped inside a HauntedHouse begins to manifest their worst fears and insecurities courtesy of a fear demon. Xander becomes invisible and inaudible to his friends, Willow's innocent magical lights [[HarsherInHindsight go out of control and attack her]], Oz begins to turn into a werewolf and injures Willow, etc. Somewhat distressingly, upon subsequent viewings it becomes apparent Xander was invisible/inaudible to his friends for awhile before they noticed, indicating he's right to feel that way.
** The season four finale "Restless" had this element too, being centered another dream episode. Willow gets her old stage fright dream from "Nightmares" combined with a scene where Buffy "unmasks" her as the timid girl she used to be, while Xander is berated by his father. There is another CallBack to "Nightmares" when Willow hopes that they are not performing "Madame Butterfly".

** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent Heaven Sent]]", the Twelfth Doctor is trapped in an isolated castle and pursued by a relentless entity known as The Veil. Twelve's running monologue reveals that the creature's form recapitulates a traumatic childhood experience in which he'd viewed the dead body of an old woman, wrapped in veils and beset by flies.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' has literal episodes; Batman gets doused with fear gas 3 times; the first time he hallucinates his allies dying because of him, aka Batman's greatest fear. The second time he has to relive the events of Crime Alley, Bruce Wayne's biggest fear. The third time fakes a [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall game crash and replays the opening cutscene]]... with Joker driving Batman into the Asylum, probably causing the unfortunate player freak out.
* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' is one for the ''Arkham Series''. Batman is afraid of going insane for most of the game, because [[spoiler: he is still affected by Joker's blood; and other's who weren't cured slowly turn into Joker. The ending also shows us that the Arkhamverse!Joker is afraid of being forgotten.]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode titled (naturally) "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E5NothingToFear Nothing to Fear]]," the cast are tormented by their fears coming to life courtesy [[spoiler: Magica de Spell]]. Interestingly, the visions start with fantastic or shallow fears (video games coming to life, the limousine turning into a monster) and become increasingly [[AdultFear down-to-earth]] and personal. The final, worst manifestations are mirror images: Uncle Scrooge sees delinquent versions of his nephews that don't respect him, and the nephews see an abusive version of their uncle who considers them a burden.
